Anarchy Reigns out now in Australia

PlatinumGames’ fighting game available in stores now

Anarchy Reigns, the latest game from developer PlatinumGames and publisher Sega, is available now on Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in Australia.

PlatinumGames executive director and producer, Atsushi Inaba, said the studio is “excited” about the Western release of the game.

"Anarchy Reigns is an ambitious project for PlatinumGames, as we wanted to challenge ourselves by creating a new genre, multiplayer brawling,” he said.

Inaba said the game can be played as a one-on-one fighter, but the real experience is in taking multiplayer characters into chaotic battles.

“We look forward to global anarchy online once everyone gets a hold of the game,” he said.

In typical PlatinumGames fashion, the game features over the top action and combat that was found in the studio’s earlier titles, such as 2010’s Bayonetta and Vanquish.

The game itself is a sequel of sorts to 2009’s MadWorld, featuring several characters from the Nintendo Wii exclusive game.

In addition to 16-player brawls, Anarchy Reigns also features microwave rays, supermutants, and a huge bounty hunter with a naturally-implanted chainsaw on his arm called Cthulhu.

Those who pick up the Anarchy Reigns Day One Edition will receive two extra multiplayer modes.

This include a special unlock within the game for the Bayonetta character model that can be used in both multi and single player modes.

Anarchy Reigns for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will retail for $49.95.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
