Despite the inevitable hard-drive hog, there's no better game we'd like to have sitting comfortably on our XMB than DC Universe Online
We're lazy. By the time we've got up, found the case, and popped Sony Online Entertainment's superhero MMO into our PlayStation 3, we don't actually want to play it anymore. But if it was saved onto our hard-drive, and available at any time... Well, then you're..

The game, which released on PC and PlayStation 3, has been slowly gathering attention since the beta. You can read our initial thoughts on the game through here. We think it's pretty good so far. Elsewhere the charts are pretty much as you were. Call Of Duty: Black Ops is on top,..

If you expected to plop DC Universe Online into your PlayStation 3 this week and encounter little patching, installing or general stuff-ups, you're doing it wrong
Unfortunately, MMOs are well known for having shaky launches, and while DC Universe Online's launch day seems to be going swimmingly (so far) in the US, you might want to set aside an hour or so before actually playing it. The game comes..
FIFA 11 and Just Dance 2 are still the UK's favourite games
Probably because no games have released since before Christmas. All that changes this week though: new video games actually release.

The more we think about DC Universe Online, the more we realise it's actually quite a big deal
MMOs are big business (although it's yet to be proven there's room in the market for a title alongside World Of Warcraft). Likewise, people still like comic book characters. Honestly, if it was a choice between Lord Of The Rings outcasts and Batman, we know who we'd choose every time. What's more, DC..
After today you can have your life back
For a week at least. The DC Universe Online beta is set to draw to a close ahead of the game's retail release next week. Of course, SOE's not going to let you off the hook without a bang.

We've played enough of DC Universe Online to know that we could get seriously, seriously addicted

Video games are, for us, all about being something you're not
This DC Universe Online trailer really hammers home that point. In the MMORPG you'll create a character and fight alongside (or against) the superheroes of the DC Universe in a massive online world. Conceptually it sounds fantastic. It hits PC and PlayStation 3 in November.
SCEE's told VG247 that the public will get their first hands-on with DC Universe Online at next week's gamescom event in Germany

MMO trailers are always misleading
They succeed in getting you hyped for a product, but they're never really close to being representative to the game they are promoting. It's hard, therefore, to go a bit doo-lally over an MMO trailer, because at the end of the day you're shouting about a piece of CGI. Still, this Comic-Con trailer for DC Universe Online is particularly stunning. It's due on..

MMOs featuring orcs, dungeons and dragons don't really appeal to us
They're all a bit Lord Of The Rings. We think superheroes, on the other hand, are rather rad. Cue DC Universe Online and this set of screens just published by Kotaku. It has the Green Lantern, man!
