Industry Update: July 25th

Since the summer season is rather slow after E3, and there isn’t much for publishers and other companies to do until September, here is another collection of industry news for your reading pleasure. From Square Enix Square seems to be the most busy this time of year, with news on recent and upcoming releases coming […]

Lego Batman 2

Okay – hello, Gamer Codex. This is Matt Tennant here. I would like to offer some backstory on this review. This review was not written by me – it was written by a very good friend of mine by the name of Matt Gaston. He saw my review and wanted to try a review once. […]
