The Five Greatest Games Inspired by Movies

The Five Greatest Games Inspired by Movies

Movies and games are usually the epitome of the chalk and cheese philosophy, especially when a Hollywood director decides to use a game as their inspiration.

How to Make a Great TMNT Game

When dressing up the NAGF console centre the other day, we noticed a correlation – quite a lot of the consoles in our possession had a TMNT game associated with it. And some darn good ones at that!

So, you’ve invested in a 3DS, and now you can’t keep away from the toilet bowl.
