How’s it goin eh?
I have to say as a gamer one of the things I have always enjoyed most about gaming is being able to immerse myself into another place and live the adventure of whatever character I’m supposed to be portraying.
One of the best series of games in which I have had this experience has to be the Batman Arkham Series, developed by Rocksteady Studios Ltd. (http://rocksteadyltd.com/).
Rocksteady has released two adventures to date starring the Dark Knight.
I. Arkham Asylum: http://rocksteadyltd.com/#arkham-asylum
II. Arkham City: http://rocksteadyltd.com/#arkham-city
Both of these games are fantastic in my opinion and I recommend them to all gamers. You will feel like THE BATMAN especially when you are gliding and grappling along Gotham in all its glory and kicking a variety of classic bat villains asses the whole way!
The graphics and game play are incredible, the story lines are creative and exciting. As Batman you can glide, grapple, use a bevy of Batman’s different gadgets, fight up to 20+ guys at a time using a mixture of vicious combo attacks and take downs.
You can see and feel the improvements that were made between Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. The reason I mention this is because I truly take my hat off to Rocksteady and thank them for making a continually better gaming experience. I for one appreciate a gaming company who strives to improve on their product by listening to the fans and not those gaming companies that promise a new or better experience but just take our money and regurgitate the same old garbage (I wont mention any names, you gamers know what I’m talking about!).
Arkham City also allows you to play as Catwoman and one of the coolest things about Arkham City for me is being able to choose which batman skin to wear. My personal favorite is Frank Millers Dark Knight but there are many skins for Robin and Catwoman too. Additional challenges, sub-missions, and an adventure featuring Harley Quinn are also part of Arkham City. Like I said before Rocksteady really raised the bar between Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.
But let’s get back to the topic at hand and the reason for all this babbling! In June 2015 Rocksteady Studios Ltd will release the last chapter in its Arkham based series: Batman Arkham Knight. This is a game I have really been looking forward to playing .
Check out the trailer here:
Looks awesome eh?
If the trailer is any sign of what to expect, this game will truly be a strong finish to what has been for me one of the greatest series of games in the last decade. The truth is all it took for me to get on board is knowing I get to drive the Batmobile!(Yeah like I’m the only one)
If you haven’t all ready checked out Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, the good news is you have plenty of time to do so before Arkham Knight hits in 2015 eh.
Enjoy and let me know what you think.
