    Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition Justifies My Non-Purchase

    Some folks were quizzing me on why I didn't purchase Batman: Arkham City when it originally dropped. My reason: wait for the Game of the Year Edition (also, Skyrim.) All the DLC - challenge rooms, Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman, and tons of skins for The Bat himself - in one neat little package. As an extra-special bonus, the brand new Harley DLC comes packed in. Some things are worth waiting for.

    Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition drops on May 29. For existing Arhkam City owners, "Harley Quinn's Revenge" DLC will be able to get got on May 30.


    Batman Zips and Glides around Arkham City, Punches Dudes

    I am a Gotham City criminal, on Batman's long list of perpetrators to be brought to justice. The reason? Batman: Arkham City has gone criminally misrepresented here on OBG, with a grand total of one article written throughout the title's development cycle. It's not that I don't care, I do. I was about a year late to the Batman: Arkham Asylum wagon, but when I finally got on I was absolutely captivated. Perhaps I've limited my reporting of Arkham City because subconsciously, I want to tackle it the same way. 

    Anyway, here's a short video of how Batman will eventually track me down and punch me in the face. I love what Rocksteady has done with the open world elements and Bats quickly covering ground (or air) without the Batwing. And of course, the free flow combat looks as good as ever. Batman: Arkham City will descend from the Gotham night sky on October 18. Though this probably won't be a week one purchase for me due to time and money constraints, it looks like a worthy get. If you're a fan of the world's most gangsta detective and are not enamored by the other games of Fall, look no further for your fix.

    Batman Roughs Up Sam Fisher in Arkham City Teaser

    Boy, they weren't kidding when they said teaser. Here's 15 seconds of Batman beating the hell out of some nondescript dudes with guns, one of which looks like Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher. Is Rocksteady Studios taking a jab at the popular and well established Splinter Cell series, which Batman: Arkham Asylum no doubt took a cue from, or am I looking too deep into it? For 15 freaking seconds of teaser, you better believe I'm going to let my imagination run wild.

    All will be set right this Saturday at 8pm EST, when Batman: Arkham City will get a proper reveal on Spike's Video Game Awards.
