Batman Arkham City PC DirectX 11 issue - The just released PC version of the hit super hero action game has encountered some performance problems that are a result of an issue with the game's DirectX 11 graphics. The game's official message boards have posted a workaround to switch from DirectX 11 to DirectX 9 until a patch can be released.

No I Am Alive for PC owners - Ubisoft doesn't plan to release the upcoming action-adventure game about an urban disaster for the PC platform because of Ubisoft's belief that piracy won't make the PC port worth it.
