Happy iPhone 5 Day... If You Care....

Well, the 6th generation of the iPhone, the iPhone 5, was released today. Apple fans are excited, everyone else isn't... What do you guys think? I for one think it needs some features that other phones are going on having for the past year. NFC is getting bigger and bigger. HD video, ON A 720P SCREEN OR HIGHER, is on the rise, and would it kill apple to give us a STANDARD micro USB port? You can do a lot if you add MHL to the mix.. We'll stick to our Android or Windows Phone 7 devices, that most of the staff here owns. Not sure  if everyone here does, but I know most of us are not Apple fans...

Review: Darksiders II (PS3)

It appears that the seal has been broken, signalling the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to ride and the beginning of Armageddon.... Except that it wasn't and War has doomed all of humanity. Death now rides to clear War's name and restore humanity in the sequel to 2010's Darksiders. How does this game stack up to the original? Read the full review after the jump!
