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…

Have You Played… Batman: Arkham Origins?

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 well. More importantly, it's set at Christmas - something of…

Arkham Knight Officially Abandons Multi-GPU Support

I've long felt that multi-GPU systems are playing with expensive fire, and even worse can, like audiophilia, lead to an anxious, ongoing preoccupation with whether you have the 'best' at the expense of actually enjoying what you're playing/hearing. Even so, I sympathise with people who invested both money and time into their SLI or Crossfire setups, only to now be told that one of the…

Steam Who? – Humble Bundle’s Spring Sale

Is there going to be a spring Steam sale? Or has Valve finally elected to give its wearied money counters - their abacuses gnarled and gnawed on, fear and desperation write large on waxen wood - a brief respite? I'm not entirely sure it matters now, though, as Humble has elected to fire the first shot with a sale of its own, and it's off…

Thermal Batpants: Chilly Arkham Origins DLC’s New Gadgets

Look, Batman: Arkham Origins' developers would like very much to stamp out a few of the remaining bugs but they've been too busy working on the DLC story campaign and the important things it adds. Like a roasty-toasty new Batsuit for Bats and special heated Batgloves to keep his Batpaws warm on chilly evenings. They're worried about young Master Bruce. Aren't you too? You don't…

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…

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate BIFFZOTTING-ing PC

Batman: Arkham Origins' superheroic antics were supremely so-so (not to mention glitchy as all get-out), but it wasn't the only game in its lineage. Comparing Arkham Origins to Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is like comparing apples to (Arkham) oranges. Blackgate is a sidescroller that originally debuted on handhelds, but it does manage to contain trace elements of previous Arkham standouts. There's similar combat, light stealth,…

Warner Prioritizing DLC Over Fixing Arkham Origins’ Bugs

No, that headline isn't backward. Maybe the reverse is happening in one of DC's other million-billion (though no longer billion-finity) universes, but not this one. Batman: Arkham Origins swung into action bogged down by a slew of diabolical bugs and glitches - some of them game-breaking - and our own boy man wonder Adam grappled with a decent many. On the upside, there have been some patches, but…

Batman: Arkham Origins DLC Adds Sort-of Origins

Batman: Arkham Origins wasn't about the origins of Batman, nor was it particularly good. It did have Batman though, and that counts for a lot. The Inititaion DLC adds challenge maps which tell the sort-of Origins of Batman, and thus don't really star Batman, but a bearded Bruce Wayne. There's a trailer and an explanation below.

Batman – Arkham Origins review

Despite its name, Arkham Origins isn’t so much Batman Begins as Batman Continues. A cynic might presume that the handing of the license to a new studio and rapid turn-around of the sequel suggests that Batman is mainly continuing because Pennyworth needs a new pair of shoes. But has the vigilante become a mercenary or is this another solid entry in the series? Here’s wot…

Batman: Arkham Oranges Has Terrible Facial Animation

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse That's because the developers of Batman: Arkham Origins are clearly using a joypad in this 17 minute walkthrough. Ahahahahahaa! Now the fun part of the story is out of the way, it's time for me to get serious. I was hoping that this video of Arkham…

Jeff Strokes: Batman: Arkham Oranges Trailer

I think we can all agree that the only DLC the upcoming Batman: Arkham Oranges needs is an "Adam West Mode", where every punch is received with an awesome orchestral blare, where the goons go down with "POW!" and "KERBLOINK!" floating over their heads, and where Batman's disturbingly manly pecs are replaced with the flat, grey tube that was Batman's chest before he discovered nippled…

The Bat And The Beautiful: Arkham Origins’ PC Pretties

I wonder if, back in the day, when Batman's creators were first putting ink to paper and bat to man, they thought to themselves, "OK, this is cool, but we won't be truly satisfied until we can add Nvidia PhysX, realistic fog effects, and DirectX 11 tessellation." I bet that's exactly where their minds drifted as they imagined a future of chrome jumpsuits, cities in…

This Batman: Arkham Origins Gallery Is Ridiculous

For a grim world that's been overwhelmed by criminals, corruption, and bat guano, the Arkham series of games has always had very polished and pretty polygons. And even though pre-release screenshots are known for being unfathomably and unrealistically pretty, both games in the series really do look gorgeous when the camera whizzes around to show a particularly brutal punch. So I'm very happy to show…

Fruits Of Their Labour: Arkham Oranges Intros Firefly

A trailer a day keeps the dread lord of games at bay, that's what we say here at RPS. If we don't, he'll rise again to wage terrible war upon our castle, PR-catapults firing besuited fast-talkers at our poor, potholed walls. Our defenses are meek and few what with the great Sir Botherer's new steed not yet full grown and aged knights Sir Rossignol and…

Batman: Arkham Origins Has Multiplayer By Splash Damage

Splash Damage have just announced that they are to be creating the multiplayer for Batman: Arkham Oranges. The sequel is due out on the 25th October, which is two days before my birthday - PUT IT IN YOUR DIARY NOW - and it seems will have the pro team ensuring that going online is worthwhile.

Batman: Arkham Originsss – Copperhead Slithers To Town

Look, it's Copperhead! You remember Copperhead, don't you? You know, the guy in the ridiculous outfit that makes it look like he's a rat with his toes wedged in a snake's rib cage and wait that's not a guy at all. Yes, it seems that Armature has been inspired by Copperhead's New 52 makeover, so the nefarious contortionist is a she now. Which is great,…

Batman: Arkham Origins Trailer Still Shows No Game

Well, my cynicism was WELL placed [engage smug mode]. After staring at the teaser trailer for the new Batman: Arkham Origins and grumpily reporting that it provided no game footage, I'd hoped Warner Bros. would sneak in a few moments of in-game action somewhere into the full trailer. Nope, they instead created a CGI story and fight sequence that stretches to nearly five minutes. It's…

Don’t Bother With The Batman: Arkham Origins Teaser

What can you do in 41 seconds? Clean answers only, please. I ask because that's the length of the first Batman: Arkham Origins trailery thing, and your time might be better spent elsewhere. You could clean out a dirty nail, or pick your nose, or maybe check that you flushed the toilet the last time you were in there. If you're determined to watch it,…
