Batman Arkham Asylum stars one of the most charismatic villains in the history of cinema. The late Heath Ledger made a lot of viewers' nightmares come true with his Joker in the Dark Knight.

Don't let Christian Bale do all the work, get into his suit and face off with the personification of terror himself in this stunning action.

The story takes place in a psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. Violence bound to break out, there are plenty of chances for you to play with the different functions of the suit.

Bear in mind that the insane may not be stupid, be on your guard at all times for the Joker's physical ruthlessness may be the least of your concerns.

Joker apparently is not the only villain out there. Some terrorist group has taken hold of a powerful missile and it is your job to stop a large scale catastrophe as Michael Thorton, a spy of your choosing.

Hundreds of passengers on a civilian aircraft has already sacrificed, if you don't do something soon, millions, or trillions more will die.

In this realistic spy action, all your decisions will affect the outcome, but of course, you will have your arsenal of weapons and stealthy moves.

The A.I of this game will have the story unfold in different ways depending on the actions you have taken. Feel the adrenaline coursing through your veins as you spy in on the darkest political intrigues.

After the dark and realistic, let's change to something light and fun. Due to a freak accident during an important ceremony, you are turned into the puppy demon lord.

Now with the power to save your land, you flew through the ozone into the universe to stop comets from crashing into your world.

Those less enamored about the idea of turning into a puppy can become a goddess student who realized that something is wrong with the meteor rain.

Join forces with the alchemists in the atilier series and the demons in Disgaea to solve the problem. Coming from Nippon Ichi Software, expect a lot of wacky plotlines and a fun system.

After seeing the Asylums, military bases, demonic and heavenly palaces, it's time to build your own. Lego Indiana Jones 2 carries on where the first game left off.

This time you venture into the south American forests in search for the Crystal skulls. Build your own pyramids brick by brick to create the ruins and dungeons.

Create your own experience, make anything you like, or import enemies from different movies. What Harrison Ford could not do because of his blood and bones body, you can do it with his lego counter part. So what are you waiting for? Go bust some lego architecture and replace the old ones with new ones.
