Batman: Arkham City coming to India on October 21

We have official confirmation of the fact - Batman: Arkham City, one of the most eagerly awaited games of the year, will arrive in India on the very day of its release. According to a press release, the game will be available for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms in India on October 21, 2011, the day it is scheduled for its global launch. Needless to say, we are absolutely delighted. In case you knew not, Batman: Arkham City comes from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, and is the sequel to the highly-acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum videogame and features the superhero they call the Dark Knight - the Batman. He will be up against Gotham City's worst as usual and this time we are assured of much better graphics (the ones in Arkham City were good enough, mind!) and a game world that is five times bigger than that seen in Arkham City. We cannot wait to get our capes on.

‘The Heist’ iPhone app hands-on

‘The Heist’ iPhone app hands-on

If you’re a Mac user, there’s a decent chance you’ve heard of Macheist, a deal site that bundles different Mac applications together for a ridiculously low price. While The Heist isn’t a bundled software deal, it’s an insanely addictive puzzle game for the iPhone based on a theme of trying to crack into a safe — hence the title. There are four different puzzle types and over 60 levels, each one with distinct themes and objectives. And, in addition, there’s a promised prize to any user that completes every level in the game. Not a bad hook, right? The game is built by developer TapTapTap, makers of the Camera+ iPhone app, and it’s available now for $0.99 in the App Store — and it’s currently sitting pretty as the No. 1 paid app.

Playing in India now: L.A. Noire!

We bet a lot of people who complain about products taking their own time to reach Indian shores will just love to hear this - Team Biondi and Rockstar Game's highly anticipated and acclaimed cops and criminals game, L.A. Noire, is now available in India, within a few days of its international launch. The game, which in best Rockstar Games tradition (hey, these are the same gents and ladies who gave us the famous - and notorious - GTA series) has been attracting a fair bit of attention for its gritty storyline, gameplay and of course, presentation, is now available in Indian stores for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 for Rs 2499. Needless to say, we are already in line for our copy. Is it as rave-worthy as people claim? Watch this space for our review, folks. As of now, we are just happy to see the game make it to Indian shores (and stores) so quickly.

Alienware releases M14x, refreshed M11x – both available in India

Indian consumers who have been learning to bide their time while waiting for high-profile international products to come to country (no, we are not naming any company!) will be delighted to know that gaming computer manufacturer Alienware will at least not make them wait. The company has launched two new gaming notebooks - the M11X and M14X - and both are available for purchase from the India website. While the M14x is a completely new addition to the company's mobile gaming range and comes with a 14-inch display , the new M11x adds more muscle to the earlier one, which was one of the most acclaimed notebooks of the previous year.Both devices come with improved processors (Intel Second Generation Core processors) and graphics cards (NVIDIA GeForce 500 series). While we have not had a go at them, we must confess that we retain our fondness for the M11x, which with its 11.6 inch display, remains one of the best portable gaming options we have seen this side of the iPad 2. The M14x starts at Rs 82,000, while the M11x will cost you upwards of Rs 64,000 - in best Dell-Alienware tradition, the configurations of both are tweakable. Heck, we are just happy to see them for sale in India already!
