What if Batman: Arkham Knight really was the Adam West show?

Flame Over competition winners

Hi all. Thanks to everyone who checked out the Let's Play video and entered into our Flame Over competition, we've drawn ten winners out of the hat from the comments both on the video itself and here on the blog, and keys have been dispatched.

Daily Giggle | Fallout Crossing

Praise be! Someone has finally worked out the answer to the question I think all of us were asking – what would you get if you crossed Fallout with Animal Crossing? [via]

The World Of Davo | The Adorable Factor

Say 'gaming' to a certain generation, and they'll say that it's all blue hedgehogs collecting rings, jumping on platforms while lava goes 'flump' around them (Hi Mum!). Another generation will think it's all explosions and frenetic violence that sees the screen frequently covered in gore, with muscle bound men throwing liberal swears with careless abandon.

It's the latter that often can be considered a console seller. Today, I want to talk about the former – hark back to a time when the cute and adorable sold systems, and were the biggest games of all time.

Game Night - 28th June - Team Fortress 2

This week we are playing Team Fortress 2, the free to play multiplayer FPS from Valve. If it’s one of the most played games years after being released, it’s for a reason – the game is incredibly fun!

Playfire Asks – Vortex Attack! Ask anything you want to a video game developer

We know a lot of you are interested in game development, so we are giving you the opportunity to ask anything you want to Jaime Domínguez, a developer who has already published 2 indie games.

Daily Giggle | Grand Theft Arthur

Well this is one of the best things I've seen in a long time. Merfish has gone and created an amazing recreation of the intro to Arthur – that wonderful cartoon about a teenage, anthropomorphic aardvark – in GTA V.

It's excellent.

Top Five... Best Video Game Guns

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is out this week, and given Dante's super cool sidearms, Ebony and Ivory, we thought we'd have a gander at some of the finest other firearms in gaming's annals. This is by no means a comprehensive list, five was way too small a number to fit in everything we wanted here.

Guess N Win - Vortex Attack

Guess N Win is back today with a new twist, instead of game screenshots we'll use game covers.

We are giving away 10 keys of Vortex Attack, a frenetic arcade space shooter featuring explosive effects and an intense local multiplayer mode. Be careful though, it can be quite addictive! I personally think it’s the best arcade I've played in years.

Batman: Arkham Knight PC pulled from sale – all refund requests will be honoured

Following the rocky launch of Batman: Arkham Knight on PC, Warner Bros. have taken the decision to remove the game from sale until further notice in order to continue work on the game and bring it up to scratch. Do note, though, that if you bought the game already you'll still be able to play it during this period

At WBIE's request, we've removed Batman: Arkham Knight, the Premium Edition, and Season Pass from sale on Green Man Gaming and we'll be issuing refunds to any who are dissatisfied with their purchase (see below).

Daily Giggle | Chess Confirmed in Fallout 4?

Before he dropping (knowledge) bombs about the wasteland of Fallout 4, Todd Howard was writing games way back when he was 12. His school chums didn't quite believe that everyone would be playing them, however...

COMPETITION | Win Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition released earlier this week, boasting a graphical spit and polish, new playable characters in the form Vergil, Trish and Lady, and a suitably devilishly difficult Dark Knight difficulty mode to test the mettle of series veterans.

You can check out the game itself in our recent Let's Play video, but we've also got three copies of the game up for grabs in this week's competition. As always, there are plenty of ways to enter and maximise your chances, with the usual bonus entries for Playfire members of course.

Let's Play... Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition | Vergil's Journey

I remember the first time I played Devil May Cry 4. I jumped in my mate's battered blue Fiesta and then drove down to Woolworths (yes, it still existed back then) to pick up the limited edition steelbook, back when steelbooks were a relative rarity.

We fired it up and just hot-swapped the controller, delighting at the slick, fast-paced combat, the OTT melodrama, and trying to beat one another's scores. It's one of the best in the series, and now it's back in a shiny Special Edition, with new playable characters, a new difficulty mode, rocking 60 FPS and a graphical spit and polish.

Looking to buy the game? Click here to head over to the store, and use FUZZYP-IXELS1-SAVE20 at the checkout for an extra 20% off!

We're running a competition to win a few copies this evening, and above there's a little Let's Play video of the game in action, focussing on Vergil.
