Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan’s partnership is the best thing to happen to Batman movies since the Shark Repellent Bat Spray from the original 1959  film. The franchise got all the better when the Arckham City Lockdown title hit the App Store last year. Powered by the same Unreal graphics engine as the awesome Infinity Blade series, it was visually…

Usually when there’s a really popular iOS game, it sits atop the Top 25 list for a few weeks or even a few months, but eventually it fades away in favor of the next big thing.

Over the past few years the debate regarding whether or not socialising online is ruining our face-to-face social skills and turning us in to introverted, den-dwellers.
