Dante’s Inferno

Dante’s Inferno takes you on a journey through Hell as envisioned by 13th century Italian poet Dante Alighieri in his Divine Comedy. The game turns the poem into a battle packed 3rd ­person gaming experience, seeing you battle demons in the nine circles of hell in a quest to save your girl Beatrice.

Why buy? Because you’re a fan of renaissance poetry. Nope – nine circles of hell to work through, that’s why.

When? February 2010

Alien vs. Predator

Already banned in Australia thanks to the developers not ”sanitising” the violence, Alien vs. Predator is back and looking better than ever. The first one was a classic so we can only imagine what 10 years worth of graphics technology development will do for the title.

Why buy? Rebellion, the team responsible for the first AVP is back at the helm. Plus if the Aussies banned it, it must be good.

When? February 2010

Grand Turismo 5

To call Gran Turismo 5 highly anticipated is an understatement, PS3 owners have been licking their lips for GT5 since the release of the console. 950 dream cars, 20 exotic ­locations sporting over 70 track ­variations, all in gloriously realistic 1080p high-definition, GT5 might just be the PS3’s defining title.

Why buy? Gran Turismo in high-def. Enough said.

When? TBA

BioShock 2

It didn’t take the BioShock developers, 2K Games, long to continue the weirdness of the original with BioShock 2. In BioShock 2, set ten years after the original, you are able to control the first Big Daddy ever created, which is not only faster than the rest, but also has free will.

Why buy? BioShock left us wanting more Big Daddies, Little Sisters and Splicers.

When? February 2010


Having been misled, War, the first Horseman of the Apocalypse, made the slight mistake of bringing about the destruction of earth ahead of time. Stripped of his abilities, tarnished and facing death, War returns to Earth in order to strike down enemies with great vengeance and furious anger.

Why buy? You get to see how the world ends, and it doesn’t involve John Cusack, a Mayan prophecy and a ridiculous plot.
