Star Trek: Beyond trailer

Another new Sci-Fi trailer.

This one looks to be getting back to the territory of the original series, out in the frontier, terrible threats, strange races, Kirk and crew on a random planet against the odds – sounds about right!

X-Men Apocalypse trailer

In the excitement of seeing Star Wars I almost forgot about the other cool trailers that have come out!!

This action flick looks epic and I can’t wait to see how it pans out. I was a little disappointed to not see McKellen or Stewart in the trailer and don’t really know how the timeline can fit now – but then again timeline consistency has never been X-Men’s strong suit anyway.

Destiny: Sparrow Racing league

After October’s Festival of the Lost comes another limited times event: Sparrow Racing!!

This latest event gives Guardians the opportunity to prove their piloting skills as they race other Guardians on specially created arenas.

Amanda Holliday coordinates the event in the Tower, providing gear and quests for guardians to complete to earn racing Sparrows and armour. Eververse company have also updated their stock for the occasion.

Note: playing this event requires the Taken King DLC which is a pain for me, but I suppose they have to incentivise their content.

Halo Nightfall: Characters (3)

Aris Le


Aris Le was born on the colony world of Aleria. Faced with few other options he mined a deadly element on the Alpha Halo shard for Covenant extremists, unaware that the element harmed humans while leaving other species unscathed. He and his partner used low tech methods to mine safely on the shard, but were found by Locke’s team. During the escape Aris tried to break away but was gunned down trying to take off.



Axl is a Yonhet smuggler, part of the Covenant Fringe. He supplied parts to Covenant zealots unaware he was being tracked by ONI. After the bomb he helped supply went off he complied with ONI in return for safety from reprisals.

Achievement Hunting (3)


I’ve been enjoying the Arkham prequel a lot. I like the focus of everything spilling out of one night’s events. I do feel that the younger, less experienced Batman still comes off the same as the more mature Bats of the later games but I’m willing to play it out as it is still a really enjoyable game.


City of Assassins
Identify Black Mask’s assassins.

This is a standard achievement for completing the first mission. After a tussle with Killer Croc at Blackgate prison and a bit of digging it is revealed that Black Mask has put a bounty on Batman’s head (despite many thinking him an urban legend – one cool feature of the gameplay) and invited the City’s best contract killers to collect.


One Eye Open
Defeat Deathstroke

Again fairly standard, after following clues to Penguin’s boat and knocking out the pushover Electrocutioner I got into a fight with Deathstroke – the best method I found was to go on the offensive early and use the Batclaw to keep him off balance.


Point to Point
Glide across Bridge without touching the ground

I got this achievement when deactivating Anarky’s bombs, a call Batman couldn’t ignore, even when being pursued by deadly assassins. The most direct route to the third bomb was across the bridge and there were plenty of grapple points along the way.


Nobody that Matters
Who is the Joker?

Another story achievement, arriving at a crime scene where Black Mask and his girlfriend appear to have been murdered Batman discovers a message referring to someone called ‘The Joker’ on the dead girl’s phone.


Shut Down
Shut down an entire Tower network

A mysterious figure calling himself ‘The Enigma’ is harassing Batman, he has stolen the city’s secrets and plans to release them all via his private network. Interesting to see Riddler viewing himself as a hero in this setting.


Silent Knight
Complete a Predator encounter using only silent takedowns
I got this when infiltrating the GCPD. After initially trying to get in without making contact at all I finished using only silent moves. Batman wouldn’t hurt cops just to get past them, even if half of them are corrupt.
