Holy Framerates, Batman: Arkham Knight Is A Mess

Holy Framerates, Batman: Arkham Knight Is A Mess

10:12, 23 Jun 2015

Edit: Further in-house RPS testing is inconclusive. I’ve rolled back my Nvidia drivers to the previous release and now have a steady framerate (with Gameworks switched on and settings maxed) until I hit a Batmobile sequence, at which point I’m experiencing dips seemingly at random. Alec, on similar hardware, is using the latest drivers and […]

Batman: Arkham Knight Out Today

Batman: Arkham Knight Out Today

Did you know that Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] is out today? You did? Then Warner Bros’ marketing budget has been vindicated. Did you you know that the early Steam reviews suggest that the PC port has serious bugs and performance issues? You did? Good. Adam is playing it now and should have more detail […]

Batman Meets Poison Ivy In Arkham Knight Battrailer

Batman Meets Poison Ivy In Arkham Knight Battrailer

09:00, 29 May 2015

Watching the latest gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight [official site], I’ve come to a realisation: the Gotham I’d like a Batman game set in is from Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin. This new trailer has Batman fly, leap, and drive around town, see, and though it has some nice detailing and neon signs, it’s […]

Thanks, Old Chum – Batman: Arkham Knight’s Dual Play

Thanks, Old Chum – Batman: Arkham Knight’s Dual Play

Spare a thought for the person responsible for turning game features into Marketing Points™. One of the things Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] brings to the series, along with loads of Batguns, is sections where Nightwing, Catwoman, and others join the fray as AI partners you can switch between. So here, look, it’s a new […]

Batman: Arkham Knight Defeated By Calendar Man

Batman: Arkham Knight Defeated By Calendar Man

18:00, 23 Mar 2015

Batman is well known for having some of the best villains in comics, but there are far more that are less well-known though, for one reason or another. Calendar Man for example is a villain whose crimes are related to the day upon which they’re committed. That sounds like the kind of thing I can […]

A Roguelike Gallery: Batman – Arkham Knight

Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] won’t be released until June but I already feel like I’m involved in a turbulent relationship with Rocksteady’s latest. After the disappointment of Arkham’s Oranges, I was relieved to hear the makers of Asylum and City were back on the case. That relief was soon replaced by doubt – much […]

Hardly any time has passed since the previous Arkham Knight trailer but I wanted to share this one for reasons that will become obvious. It’s all about the car, that being the big new feature and all, and it has managed to eradicate any enthusiasm I had about getting behind the wheel. The Batmobile looks […]

Introducing The Brucemobile: Batman – Arkham Knight

16:00, 24 Nov 2014

Batman’s taste in cars has changed over the decades. The new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight shows Rocksteady’s integration of the Batmobile into their particular brand of urban exploration and fisticuffs. The driving sections aren’t relegated to minigames or interludes, the vehicle is right there, in the thick of the action. In the scenes below, […]

Batman: Arkham Knight’s Batmobile Looks Really Fun

Batman: Arkham Knight’s Batmobile Looks Really Fun

14:00, 10 Jun 2014

Pootling around Gotham City in the Batmobile on a sunny Sunday afternoon certainly sounds pleasant, but what the dickens is Batman doing in Arkham Knight that he needs that all that firepower? Battling tanks in the streets for some baffling reason, a five-minute gameplay trailer out of E3 shows. But look, I won’t harp on […]

Na Etc. Look, A Batman: Arkham Knight ‘Gameplay’ Trailer

16:00, 21 May 2014

To go out with a bang, and perhaps to shake up the slightly stale series, Batman: Arkham Knight is introducing a drivable Batmobile of your very own to pootle around Gotham City. Nipping down to the shops to buy Shark Repellent Bat Spray, dropping Robin off at school, taking Catwoman out for a night on […]

Rumour – WB Knew Batman Arkham: Knight PC Was Pants

15:00, 02 Jul 2015

Rumours are shifty things, and we should recognise that we’re more inclined to trust ones which support our existing opinions. That said, I TOLD YOU SO. A mate of Ian Video Games has told Kotaku that publishers Warner Bros. knew for ages that the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] was wonky – […]

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 […]

The Joy Of Arkham Asylum’s broken Batman

The Joy Of Arkham Asylum’s broken Batman

17:00, 05 Jun 2017

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 […]

After leaving goggheads mumbling “Na na na na na na na nah really mate, thanks for giving us a go on your goggs” on PlayStation, Batman: Arkham VR [official site] is coming to PC. Arkham VR will be on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive cybergoggles on April 25th, Warner Bros. announced today. It lets players […]

Have You Played… Batman: Arkham Origins?

Have You Played… Batman: Arkham Origins?

15:00, 25 Dec 2015

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin’s flown away… Arkham Origins definitely isn’t the best of the latter-day Batman games, but at least on PC it’s definitely not the worst, either – and it’s ageing […]

The Red-Faced Knight Returns: Batman’s Back On Steam

20:22, 28 Oct 2015

So, let’s try this again. After a three and a half month hiatus, Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] is now available on Steam again. It was pulled off sale in July after criticisms of the PC version’s poor performance reached fever pitch, but I don’t think any of us really expected it would take this […]

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 […]

Batchat: On Arkham Kerniggut’s Strengths/Failings So Far

13:00, 24 Jun 2015

We didn’t have Batcode for Batman: Arkham Kerniggut [official site] until yesterday (perhaps because of issues with the PC version), so Adam’s full verdict is a little way off yet, but as both he and Alec have been playing it when they can, they had a chat about what’s working and not working in their […]
