Top Ways To Know You Are Batman!!!

Move aside all those confusing reviews for Batman Arkham Knight. I’m Dan Eker, and I’m here to tell you if these games are really worth your free time.

TL;DR Yes it is, because it’s an escape to become the Batman we knew as kids, in that awesome cartoon.

Comic book heroes, as if anyone remembers they were once only in comics, are now all over the main stream Hollywood movie list. Or shall I call it #Marvelwood. With odd reboots like; The Fantastic 4, with that sexy midget girl (NSFW) from house of cards as the invisible woman. Or reboots like; another Spiderman. Comic book heroes, especially in games, seem more and more like WWE wrestlers. Flatly hating each other, and fighting for no real reason. And in this day and age, where graphics are always amazing, how do you choose which game to play? Just ask me J

Driving: Batman Arkham Knight, is the third of its series. Arkahm Knight is getting a lot of heat for; sticking the Batmobile as the only way to finish many missions. Let me say this first: The Batmobile missions are great! I usually don’t like races in games, but because this is really an intelligence + Skill addition. It’s not really a cheap extra game, Rocksteady’s junior’s contributed. Flying around Gotham is still the best way to travel, but the Batmobile, and especially the 1989 movie skin for it, is a solid second.

With the Batmobile out of the way, let’s talk about what Rules and Sucks about Batman Arkham Knight:

Combat: The weakest link in this game. Rocksteady didn’t change anything up here. Although fans of the game like it, let’s be honest; it’s too easy, outdated and a little bit condescending towards hard core gamers. It’s so ridiculously easy, They should add a patch or DLC that’ll insert; POW!,  KaBOOM!,and  Wham! it’s really hard to lose a fight when you are batman. He basically flies in the speed of light between foes. They even added a scare Tactic, it can knock out up to 3 foes in one hit without giving them the option to fight back.

Story: Batman Arkham Knight has a tight, slowly unfolding, film nourish story. Just like what DC stands for (Detective Comics), Batman is going through a physiological roller coaster ride. After cremating The Joker in the opening sequence, Batman seems to be having a hard time letting him go. There is a weird Evil new Batmanish character that is working with more familiar foes, and he seems to know everything about you. Batman’s inner feelings are represented by the Joker’s harsh remarks, voice acted by no other than Mark Hamill.

Side Missions: If you read my Blog before, you would know I really appreciate good side missions. Here is where Batman really shines! Because of the way things are revealed in Batman Arkham Knight, You kind of encounter your side missions by “accident”. For example; while you are zipping and flying through Gothem, you encounter Serial killer victims that you can investigate, or a bat like creature of the night you can try to follow around. These types of side missions really expand the universe and let you feel the city through Batman.

Summing up:  This game won’t make you jump up and down saying “I’m Batman”. But it is a solid 8 on my scale. All the familiar voice actors, and the way the game reveals the story. Batman Arkham Knight really throws you back to the cartoon we all loved as kids.

Get It.

Top 5 reasons, why buying a video game in Game Stop is way better than online.

If you are not a video game pre-order fan, you could still pick up a, hot from the oven game, sometime even a week ahead of its release date!

  1. Escaping The Boyfriend Seat

Game stores have designed themselves similar to how record shops, like tower records, or comic book stores used to. You get the feeling that it’s ok to hang out there. When you are on a tedious shopping tag-along, No longer will you sit around bored out of your skull. Being ignored while fantasizing about, how you always told yourself you will never be in this position ever again. Yet here you are. The Covers of new generation video games are not called cover art for nothing! Even if you are not a video game enthusiast, being surrounded by these hyper realistic creations, calms the mind and inspires you to imagine what could be held inside. Just like when you were a kid.

  1. Your Old Games Are Worth Something

Even a Massive, Open world, epic game like The Witcher 3 Wild hunt, can run its course. Yeah you can sell it online, or on your local Bodega. But those places don’t always want your game. The stores have a business plan that encourages you to come back to them. Even the newest games can be swapped with 2 older ones, regardless of which console it works on. Check out Game Stop’s 9.99er list, you would be surprised what a little research could save you.

  1. Downloading Time Is Your Ride Home

When downloading a game from the Playstation Network, or Xbox Live most people leave the console open all night. You only enjoy your shiny new game the next day after work. Yes, some games let you play while they download. But come on! This is cutting your experience to chapters until it finally finishes. Taking a game home, undressing that factory cellophane. Reading the manual and the synopsis, it’s an excitement you don’t get from looking at the download percent bar.
