I AM BATMAN playing a video game

 

Wait, what?

Games & Gear of 2015: Batman Arkham Knight (06/02/2015)

 

Well people this is it. The final title in the excellent Arkham series of Batman games. This one series gave hope to gamers, who are also hardcore comic book enthusiasts, that a good comic book game can be possible (although Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2 was pretty good in my opinion). After Arkham City and subsequently the death of Joker, Gotham has become pretty peaceful since the clown prince of crime took a dirt nap. However it wouldn’t last because the rest of Batman’s rouges gallery decided to go after Batman directly by taking over a huge chunk of the city and flooding it with scum and villainy. To make matters worse a heavily armed and armor vigilante called Arkham Knight has shown up wants nothing more than to kill Batman (big surprise). So in addition to saving the city (again), and taking out the likes of Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, players will have to watch their back for the Arkham Knight – an anti-Batman if you will. You know the old saying people, if you need to go out, go out with a bang, a Batman Arkham Knight sounds like a thick and meaty bang to me.

 

 

Armada’s E3 picks: Batman: Arkham Knight (2015)

 

Well people the good news is that Batman: Arkham Knight is going to be 20x larger than the original Arkham Asylum, players will be able to drive (and battle in) the 8th wonder of the DC world, the Batmobile, and this game should be the magnum opus in the series as it concludes the Arkham saga. Now the bad news is that the game has been delayed for 2015 due to the fact of ‘awesomeness’ and making sure this product will be a best. This is the bummer for sure but there’s a lot of games coming this October and even Arkham Knight would have a hard time fighting the other titles for living room dominance. So you could say that their delay is a blessing and a curse, so how will caped crusader pass his time til then? Will he rent a movie? Will he take in the game? Is the Joker really dead (no)? Whatever he plans to do buy Batman: Arkham Knight next year and forget about it! Same bat time, same bat channel!

 

 

 

Games & Gear of 2014 – Batman: Arkham Knight (2015)

 

And thus the 3rd… Though honestly I would have liked the title to be: Arkham World, beggars can’t be choosers. In continuation of the wildly popular and successful Batman Arkham series, Arkham Knight takes places one year after the death of the Joker (yeah and if you believe he’s really dead I got some Asylum property to sell you). Players return as Batman who, big surprise, continues to clean up the messes created by the Arkham project (basically an idea turning a part of the city into a open world prison for crazy people). And while the Joker maybe gone other famous Batman villains like Scarecrow,Penguin, Two-Face, and Harley Quinn are more than willing to pick up where he left and cause some serious trouble for the Dark Knight. Moreover a new obstacle has appeared is the form of the Arkham Knight, a full metal version of Batman with a more punisher mentality to crime. So how will Batman save the city this time? Can he fight the overwhelming odds of the Gotham criminal element all gunning for his head? Can he figure out the mystery of the Arkham Knight? Is the Joker really dead (no)? Buy the game this October to find out! Same bat time, same bat channel!
