The best action games on PC

Everyone loves a good action game. It's the driving force behind so many of our favourite PC games, but only a few can lay claim to being the best action games of all time. That's why we've compiled this list - to sort the pulled punches from the bestest biffs that PC has to offer. Whether it's the joy of pulling off a perfect combo,…

The decade, as told in grappling hooks

The last ten years have brought us many joys. We've already celebrated the best games of the past decade, but with such scattergun nomination comes neglect. Only three of the fifty games we picked had grappling hooks, so clearly the entire endeavour was pointless and you will need an alternative resource.Here's my definitive guide to the swinging tenties. I haven't mentioned Worms, because they get…

Batman is free in both Lego and Arkham flavours on the Epic Games Store

Light the candles, roast the goose, Father Epic has come to town. Bearing gifts of cost-free games, he's telling tale of a masked menace from a far-off metropolis. Clad in black and the cowl of a bat - what delightful nonsense! For the younger children, a toy-like series of marvels await in the Lego Batman trilogy. Ah, and for you older rascals, the Arkham series…

Have You Played… Batman: Arkham Knight?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.Maybe it's the E3 scent in the air or maybe it's just that I'm craving some big budget biffing, but I'm missing my favourite Multiple-A franchises right now. The Arkham games in particular. Oh, to be the bat-like man once more.

The Joy Of Arkham Asylum’s broken Batman

A few hours into Arkham Asylum [official site], I thought Batman's cape was glitching. It does occasionally catch on railings if you brood-squat at an odd angle, but this was different; an occasional flash of colour in the gloom of the garment* caught my eye and I thought Bats' big old utility belt was glitching through the cape. But, no, the cape had been torn…

Bruce Wanes: Batman Arkham Series Finale Leaked, Has Car

Update: official trailer released, and below, right at the very bottom of the post. First there was Batman: Arkham Macguyver, then there was Batman: Arkham A Bit Of City, then Batman: Arkham Oranges, and now there is Batman: Arkham Nighty-Night. Oh, alright, just Arkham Knight. But I'm only calling it that this once.And it has a driveable Batmobile! Jeez guys, why'd it take you four…

Wayne Good Deals: Latest Humble Bundle Is Positively Batty

Bruce Wayne, billion dollar playboy who was recently declared Least Likely Man On Earth To Be Batman (Of The Year) by Time magazine, is at it again. He's teamed with a gaming storefront known as the Humble Bundle to sell games largely focused on Batman for no specific reason. The proceeds of a pay-what-you-want bundle that includes that likes of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman:…

Batman’s Ditched GFWL, But Say Goodbye To Your Saves

Even when villains are given a good, hard KAPOWTHWACKBIFFZOTT-ing and the day is saved, Batman stories rarely end on entirely happy notes. Thus, it's almost sort of fitting that Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City haven't escaped Games For Windows Live's years-long countdown to self-destruction entirely unscathed. Yes, they're finally free of Microsoft's arbitrary, ages-behind-the-times shackles, but your save files, amazingly, won't be making the…

2K Yanks GFWL From Bioshock 2, Brings DLC To Steam

Small victories are important. Games For Windows Live has been minced into a fine paste and sent off to a major supermarket chain as a horse meat substitute, but the effects of it are still being felt. Most games are still saddled with the client, and it takes an act of will on the part of the publishers to swab that canker sore. 2K did…

Back In Bat: Arkham Origins Does Year One, Sort Of

Dammitall! Here we were, hoping the next Batman game would be a gloriously silly, super-colourful Silver Age tale, but instead it looks to be more grimdark Nolanism. I mean, that's fine, but we've done it twice already. Don't wear it out, as Michelle Pfeiffer once said about her name to Michael Keaton. 'Tis not to be - Batman: Arkham Origins is the next game, Rocksteady…

Batman: Arkham Allegations

We may be in for a third Batscapade from the Arkhamverse, according to Warner suits in the company's latest earnings call, and it'll probably be this year too. There's almost nothing to go on, other than Warner's Chief Financial Officer John K. Martin letting slip that "and we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman…

Batman: Arkham City Prequel Set For Silver Age

Variety are reporting that the next Batman game will be a prequel to Arkham City set in the 1950s "Silver Era" of DC Comics. They report that a "New, highly stylized title is being developed as a prequel that revolves around Batman's first meeting with the Joker. It's based on the Silver Age of DC's comicbooks from the 1950s when the Caped Crusader teamed with…

Zokk! There’s An Arkham City Demo On Steam

With everything else that went on last year I felt like we skipped over Arkham City a bit, which is a shame because it was a great game, with ideas aplenty. Also: Batman. Anyway, consider this your reminder to take a look if you haven't, because there's a demo gone up on Steam, giving you limited access to Arkham's open-world Batman 'em up. Perhaps them…

Robin’s Hood: Harley Quinn’s Revenge Trailer Goes Batty

Sometimes, it's easy to forget that sidekicks have a purpose. They are, after all, easily kidnapped by arch-nemeses, generally ineffective unless dwelling in their natural habitat of the hero's shadow, and rarely capable of putting together a costume that doesn't implicitly beg for a super-powered swirly. I have to say, though, that Batman: Arkham City's Harley Quinn's Revenge DLC looks pretty promising. Robin's doing his…

Arkham Horror: Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC TBC On PC

Revenge is a dish best served cold - or at least lukewarm, in this case. On the upside, Batman: Arkham City's story-concluding DLC-based chapter is en route to PC, Warner told Eurogamer. That, however, is where things take an almost amusingly convoluted turn into asylum-worthy madness. So, first off, the PC version of Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition - to which the DLC's…

Patchman: Arkham Fixy

As roughly 50% of the emails to the wheezing RPS inboxotron over the last week will attest to, Rocksteady and Warner have not exactly displayed willing enthusiasm when it comes to the PC edition of Batman: Arkham City. A long- and mysteriously-delayed launch followed by DirectX 11 performance that was about as smooth as stinging nettle moonshine, then the final insult of the eventual patch…

BAFTAs 2012: Portal 2 Takes The Prize

The British Academy Video Game Awards took place on Friday night and Portal 2 was awarded highest honours, taking home little gold faces not only for Best Game, but also for Story and Design. Congratulations to Valve, who by this point must be making plans to put up some new shelves of award-bearing load strength. The popular vote went to Battlefield 3, which also won…
