I tend not to get all that worked up about video games these days, mainly because I never really have time to play them. However, after watching this extended preview of Batman: Arkham City (via MrKQgaming on YouTube), I might need to clear my schedule when Rocksteady’s Arkham Asylum sequel hits shelves on Oct. 18.
Looking back on the parade of terrible Caped Crusader-based video games released over the last two decades, did we ever anticipate that a developer could get things this right? And twice in a row by the looks of it? Holy turnaround, Batman!
Speaking of Batman, now’s as good a time as any to heap praise on DC’s rebooted Detective Comics series—among the best of the publisher’s “New 52” relaunch. Not that I have anything against Dick Grayson, but it’s great to have Bruce Wayne back in the cowl. Plus, Tony S. Daniel is weaving a particularly twisted tale that involves cutting people’s faces off. Just sayin’.
Anyway, check out this preview of Arkham City, and be sure to pick your jaw up off the floor when you’re finished.
