Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2019 by getbent57

Batman_Return_To_ArkhamHave add yet another game to my PS4 library.  It is Batman: Return to Arkham.  This disc has the remastered versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.  Own both of these games for the PS3.  They are awesome and must play games.  When I seen this copy going cheap had to buy it.  Both game come with all there extra and DLC was well.  Which I never played.  This series of games are the best version of Batman ever.  Including TV and the movies.  Think this is because you get to play as Batman other than just watch.  Looking forward to replaying these.

Batman: Arkham City Graphic Novel Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2011 by getbent57

Finished reading Batman: Arkham City graphic novel last night.  Really like it.  The art was great.  The story did an awesome job of filling in the blanks between the two games.  I finished the Arkham City game long before reading this novel.  It was nice to get  more detail on the plot on how the city came to be.  My favourite part was to do with the Riddler.  When I was playing the game was trying to figure out how he got all this set up in the game.  There is a small story arc in the back of the book showing how he did it.  Good stuff.

Love this book.  It helps that I am a big Batman fan and a huge fan of both games.  This is a must read if you are a fan of the games as well.  While it is not very long, it is still worth it.

Batman: Arkham City Graphic Novel

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2011 by getbent57

BatmanArkhamCityNovel Back on November 28, 2011 I was out doing some Christmas shopping.  Was in the local book store looking for a certain book I was going to give for a gift.  After looking then asking the lady behind the counter, it turns out they do not carry it.  Wasn’t too happy.  So when I got home, ordered it off of Amazon.ca.  To get free shipping I need to spend over a certain amount.  Then remember the graphic novel Batman: Arkham City.  It is the novel the bridges the gap between the two Batman Arkhan games.  So that is what I ordered.

The book shipped out on November 29, 2011.  Then on December 2 they were in the mail box.  I was shocked.  The website site said estimated time of arrival December 6.  That is the fast I have got any thing in the mail other than bills.  So at some point I will have a review up.

Batman: Arkham City Review

BatmanACCover Finished up the main story of Batman: Arkham City last night.  This game is pure awesome from the start right to the end.  It plays like the first with much, much more fine tuning.  Arkham Asylum was the best Batman game very made now Arkham City is the best.  There is so much going on in the story with lots of cool surprising twists.  If you are playing make sure to do the many side missions so you can see even more of Batman’s bad guys.  There are so many in there is so great to see as a bit Batman fan.

Can only think of two times I got frustrated.  Happens in most games.  For me it is boss battles.  Hate them.  Did have to “cheat” a bit.  Looked online on how to beat them.  There is so much to see and do.  The hidden Riddler  trophies, there is around 400 or so I do believe.  Might not get them all going to try.  But that is only one aspect to the side missions.  There are a lot more than that.

This is a must by.  Best Batman game ever.  One of the best action/adventure games as well.

Batman: Arkham City Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on October 20, 2011 by getbent57

Have had Batman: Arkham City two days now.  Wow, this game is freaking awesome.  Picked up my copy from Wal-mart.  They were/are running a promotion.  Buy Arkham City and get  Arkham Asylum game of the year edition free.  Bought that even thought have Arkham Asylum.  A free game is a free game.

This game is great.  Has the great elements from the first game will all new and even better stuff.  If you have played the first game you know how smooth the combat is.  Well if flows even better.  Just so fun to swoop down and take the bad guys out.  The world is hugh.  There is so much to  do.  Get side tracked with all the side missions.  But they don’t feel like side missions since they kind of fit into the main story.  Can see myself spending many hours playing this game and not seeing all of it.

Up Coming Games

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 3, 2011 by getbent57

Skyrim Was trying to think of something to blog about today.  Then got the idea to list all the up coming games I want to buy and ones I am interesting in may be buying. Will start with the games I will buy for sure.  The problem is they come out all around the same time frame.  They do this to cash on the Christmas shopping but come on.  There is only so much money.  The lists will change over time because I might forget to put some on or the release dates change.

Buying for sure:
