Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 1: Realm of Shadows PC review

Adventure game veterans, Telltale Games- responsible for the excellent game serial based on The Walking Dead comics, turn their attention to the Dark Knight Detective.

I just can’t get enough of Batman. Behind Daredevil, he is, when done right, my favourite superhero. It possibly gives you an insight into my pent up frustrations that they are both mildly psychotic, very flawed characters.

Hands-on review: Crucial MX300 750GB Limited Edition SSD

Crucial’s new MX300 750GB solid state drive finally gives hardcore PC users the fast hard drive space they’ve been asking for.

A measly 120GB or even 250GB SSD is of little use for the PC power user. OK, so you can put the operating system on it, but it leaves precious little space for anything else.
