He would not have to wait long for another chance as he charged to winners finals with 3-0 victories against Truth's Batman and a returning Tommy's Green Lantern.

Now that the Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles have been firmly established in the gaming market, it is only natural that expansions upon their luxuries would be a hot topic among gaming communities, including controllers.

Nevertheless, when I looked at the image myself I could not stop gawking at its cool design. Click to read more![...]
