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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
