405 Video Games: WWE '13 Wrestler Roster Announced
The roster of playable muscle-bound actors has been announced for WWE '13, the latest iteration in a line of games that stretches back 12 years. With 87 characters, this is the biggest roster yet and includes classics such as The Undertaker and Mankind alongside newer greased-up greek wannabes I've never heard of, like Road Dogg and Brie Bellar.
The game also features classic versions of our favourite now-decrepit wrestlers, with pre-mask removal debacle Kane, a more hirsute Undertaker, Stone Cold who, to be honest, always looked about 40 and notoriously "baddest man on the planet" Mike Tyson (I don't know why).

WWE '13 will be released October 30th on PS3, Wii and Xbox 360, published by THQ.
Jacob Dennis will pick Kane every time, and beat Vince McMahon's smirking face into the ground.

Overlord II: The lesser of two Evils By Robert Haughton Not many of us actually like the hero. They have too much burden to bear. Add the fact that it is often their choice to play the part and ultimately you get a set of pearly whites smiling smugly, illuminated by the glow of their self worth. Itâs no wonder another Overlord is needed. After the much-mourned Dungeon Keeper series we long to step into some evil boots and keep the world under them. So what is it like sto...
