Batman: Arkham Origins

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2014 by getbent57

BatmanArkhamOriginsHave been the game Batman: Arkham Origins for a little while now but never opened.  Well last night decided it would be time to try it out.  Loved the first two Arkham games so this one should be good as well.  Seen lots of video for this game, which looked awesome.  After it was installed and booted up.  It does look great.  Just like the last game.  Played about 40 minutes and so far it is all most exactly the same as the last game.  The way you interact with the world (so far) is all so exactly the same as well.  This is not a bad thing but it would have been nice to see some new animations.   For example, the way you pull covers off of the air vents is the same right down to they way look and how you move thought them.   The story so far is pretty good.  This game takes before the other games.  Batman is about two years in being “The Batman”.  Think is good, it has him seen some of these bad guys for the first time.  So far am liking the game.  Just have to get back into the swing of the combat.

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgHave picked up a copy of Batman: Arkham Origins.  It was on sale for $40 so I had to get it.  This is one of the games on my  have to get and play list.  Loved the first to Arkham games so I think this one will be awesome as well.  Mind you I haven’t played it yet.  That is because I am still playing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.  So now I have three new unopened games on my desk.  One being Arkham Origins next is Sly Cooper Thieves in Time then Dishonored.  Not sure what to play after Black Flag.  It will be hard to decided what to play.  Might have to flip a coin.  Never had this many games just setting there not played.  Most times I get a game play it until I done with it then get a new one.  May be any one reading this can help me out.  Pick one you think I should play and leave it in the comments section.

Batman: Arkham Origins – PS3 Knightfall Pack Trailer

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2013 by getbent57

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgThere is a new trailer out for Batman: Arkham Origins.   This one is showing off some exclusive DLC for the PlayStation 3.  The DLC has two skins one is the 60’s TV Batman and the second is the Knightfall Batman.   They are both ever cool.  The other part of the DLC is, five challenge maps.  All this is pretty cool.  But sad at the same time the game is not even out and there are all ready hyping DLC.  It would have been nice if this stuff was just on the disc.  Still want to get this game.  Just think I will have to wait a bit.  Because I will still be playing GTA V when this game comes out October 25, 2013.

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgA few post back talk about the Batman: Arkham Origins Collector’s Edition but it was for the UK market.  How the North America version has been confirmed.  It shares some of the same items.  Really like the Batman and Joker statue from the UK version.  The NA one has 9” Joker statue with LED effects.  You can see what it looks like > here or below.  This $120 edition comes with that statue.   All so an 80-page artbook, a Batman Wanted Posted, and a Batwing prototype schematic. In addition, the bundle features a glow-in-the-dark map of Gotham City, a Wayne family photo, and an Assassin’s intel dossier.  There is all the the DLC codes.  The last thing is the documentary Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics.  Plan on buy this documentary any way so I might just hold off and buy this edition.  The picture shows the a DVD and a Blu-ray copy.  Not sure if comes with both.  Going to thing hard about buying collector’s edition.

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgThe collector’s edition of Batman: Arkham Origins has been reviled.  It looks pretty sweet but then when I finished reading the article.  It says this version is for the UK market.  The article does say the North American version will be announced.  Going to talk about the UK one any way.  If the North American one is just as good I just might buy it.  The UK version comes with:

The game with a steelbook case

80 page art book

Assassin’s dossier

DLC codes for skins pack and Deathstroke challenge pack

And the coolest thing a 30 cm statue of Batman and The Joker.

Batman: Arkham Origins – Multiplayer Trailer

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , on August 5, 2013 by getbent57

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgWe are now into August so all the games that are set to come out between now and the “holidays” we will see all kinds of new info on these games.  Here to talk about Batman: Arkham Origins.  A few days ago they put out a trailer for the multiplayer part of the game.  At first I was thinking this game doesn’t need multiplayer.  But had to check out the trailer > here or below.  When I first started watching it.  Thought it looks like a better version of Gotham City Impostors.   After watching all of the trailer, can say it kind of is but different at the same time.  The interesting thing is 3 vs. 3 vs. 2.  It has two teams of three fight.  Which is the Jokers/gang vs. Bane/gang.  The comes in the twist.  The third team, Batman and Robin.  While the other two teams are squaring off the Bat and Robin are trying to take down the other two teams.  Its looks and sounds cool.  I am sure I will try it when I get this game.  But do not see multiplayer as a selling part.

Batman: Arkham Origins E3 Trailer

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgSadly E3 is all over for another year.  With all the talk of next gen consoles and the games coming out for them.  It seems like all the awesome games at are still do come out for current gen are getting a bit over look.  There are some many great games coming  I will not be jumping on to next gen any time soon.  One of the game I will be getting for sure is Batman: Arkham Origins.  Have been reading and watching videos of this game from E3 and it looks like it will be another solid Batman game.  Even with a different team making it looks just as good.  With all the gameplay the first two had that made it awesome and more.  There is some cool new things in the game.  If you check out the E3 trailer > here or below you will see there is a new detective mode.  There is all so a very cool new grapping hook.  It looks like you can shot it at one object than shoot another object then it line retracts bringing the two object together .  Say hook two bad guys together to knock them out.  Out one end on a bad guy and the other to a propane tank.  This game looks so fun.  Pretty sure the will be all kinds of new info, pictures and video long before the game comes out.  Which is October 25, 2013.

Batman: Arkham Origins – Trailer

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , on May 20, 2013 by getbent57

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgA few days ago posted the teaser trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins.  Then said the full trailer would be out May 20, 2013.  Well today is the 20th.  The trailer is now out > here or below.  The trailer is pretty sweet.  Would love to see a full length movie with the animation they have got here.  Some of the best I have every seen.  They move like they are real.  The snow looks like real snow.  In the trailer you will see Batman fighting Deathstroke.   While that awesome fight is going on you will see Deadshot.  Then at the end you will see (which I think will be the main bad guy in the game), Black Mask.  The trailer is so awesome I am going to watch it again.  If you check it out make sure it is full screen and in HD.
