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.

Have You Played… Batman: Arkham Asylum?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I grew quickly weary of Batman: Arkham City and initially had no interest in Batman: Arkham Knight, but that game being released and then unreleased left me thinking about and eventually longing for the Bat. Batman: Arkham Asylum [official site], the first in…

Holy Sale: Warner Steam Bundle Is A Bit Good

Edit: We're reading below that lots of regions outside the UK are being charged a really very much larger sum. Which sucks. Valve will always insist prices are decided by publishers, so yell at Warner. There's also confusion over the inclusion of Arkham City and War In The North - to be absolutely clear, the Warner Complete Pack definitely currently includes those games, whether by…

The Delayed Knight: Arkham 2 PC Slips

It was rumoured, and then it was confirmed, and then we were all like :( For it is true: the man of bats will not strike back on PC in 10 days' time, but instead in 17 days' time. A small wait, perhaps, but we've already had to hang on for almost a month later than the console-folk. Yes, the already-delayed Batman: Arkham City PC…

Impressions – Batman: Arkham City

Batman! A game so good that Yahoo awarded it 6/5, thus unwittingly demonstrating that review scores are little more than a media pissing contest whose only real beneficiary is publishers’ marketing departments and people who like to shout at other people on forums. Which is exactly why we don't give scores here. Can Arkham City possibly live up to such drooling superlatives? Well, I can’t…

I Lied To You About Batman

I'm so sorry. There's going to be a proper scandal about that. GamesIndustry.biz or Gamasutra or someone will probably run an expose about the awful corruption at RPS. Last week, I brazenly claimed, to your face, that this would be the last Batman: Arkham City trailer we'd post before the pointlessly-delayed PC release next month. I LIED TO YOU. Because here's the first proper PC…

It’s… The Last-Ever Arkham City Trailer!

Well, maybe. Suppose it depends on whether they squeak out any particularly tasty DLC. With the game due for release on the unantialiased darklands of console next week and currently drawing huge review scores - but sadly delayed on PC - its constant torrent of promotional videos is now capped off by this launch-ish trailer. It's very dramatic! It implies Batman facing his darkest challenge…

Ice To See You: Arkham City’s Mr Freeze

I have nothing but sympathy for poor old Mr Freeze and the comics writer who created him, Ian Cold. From Batman's already ludicrous rogue's gallery (Man-Bat! Calendar Man!), his star is surely the most fallen, thanks to the governor of California's chilling portrayal in the most nippletastic of all the Batman movies. How to make this pun-spewing pastiche remotely fearsome again? Well, give him a…

To The Betacave! Gotham City Imposters

Gotham City Imposters, which can very loosely be described as Team Fortress 2 populated by armies of crazies pretending to be either Batman or the Joker, is two important things: 1) the first game from NOLF-makers Monolith since the dour FEAR 2, and more importantly their first attempt to do humour and outlandishness rather than po-faced horror since 2003 2) bonkers. This is why my…

12 Minutes of Batmens & Catwomens

Batman: Arkham City gets closer and closer, and we get exciteder and excitider, and in the heat of our anticipation become less gramatickly accurate. After what feels like years of teasing, concept art and pre-order incentives, finally we get to take a long, lingering look at what it's really like in action. Below: 12 minutes of the game, including playable funtimes from both Batman and…

Batman’s Pet Boy In Arkham 2

And here was I thinking that all the non-comics Batman spin-offs were doing their damndest to pretend that the dark knight detective wasn't in the habit of dragging a boy along to his late-night soirees with angry street thugs. Robin has been resolutely absent from Christopher Nolan's Batman movies and went without mention in the solid, tight Arkham Asylum. But the Boy Wonder has found…

Wot I Think: Batman – Arkham Asylum

Rocksteady's slightly delayed PC version of their rather well-received man-thumper/ledge-grappler goes on sale this week. I've been playing it. I've also written some words detailing how I feel about it. But I'm not just going to give them to you, oh no. If you can solve my cunning riddle, you can work out how to read them. Riddle me this!

Brucie Bonus: Free DLC for Batman Arkham Asylum

I'll be Wotting My Thinks all over Rocksteady's much-ballyhooed Batman adventure next week (we'd hoped for sooner, but I've been fruitlessly chasing review code for weeks now. Apparently the fancy PhysX effects have held it up), but until then let's bask in the warm glow of promised free stuff. No idea what the free DLC will be, but it's due on the 17th - a…

The Bat-Physics: Arkham Asylum Tech Trailer

We're going to be taking a closer look at Bruce Wayne's secret identity on PC soon, but until we do there's a rather shiny "showcase" trailer showing off how implementation of physics engine tech looks on nVidia-powered PCs. Stuff swirls and swishes and dudes get kicked. It's quite impressive. It's still the same gloomy, doomy Arkham Asylum, but there's quite a lot more detail. And,…

To The Bat Trailer!

There's a launch trailer appeared for Batman: Arkham Asylum. Launch, that is, for the console version of course. The PC version is being delayed until 15th September, so it can be filled with PhysX magic. In the meantime, of course, you can play the demo, and if you're thinking of upgrading your graphics card for the occasion, NVidia has just announced they're giving away a…

Batman: Arkham Asylum Demo, Trailers

The Batman: Arkham Asylum demo is up, and weighs in at a portly 2gb. The third-person action game seems to be earning reactions ranging from the satisfied to the hysterical, but at least you can judge for yourself in this instance. You can get it here or here. The PC version of the superheroic skull-thumping game is out September 15 in North America and September…

Bat-Biff! Batman Combat Trailer

So, this has perked up my interest in the forthcoming Bat-brawler. This new Batman: Arkham Asylum trailer shows the caped protagonist beating on the nasties in a knuckle-crunching fashion. It looks remarkably robust and fairly fluid. The devs had been promising a flowing combat experience, and, judging by the game footage we see here, they might just have pulled it off. We should find out…

Metal Gear Batman: Arkham Asylum Stuffs

The dark'n'mysterious picture of what manner of beast Batman: Arkham Asylum may be is becoming clear. Beneath the cut, footage straight outta GDC of the Splinter Cell/Metal Geary Invisible Predator mode. You can also find my initial thoughts on that and another of AA's modes (a high score attack one, very much in the the vein of The Club) in a big ol' preview piece…
