I had long wanted to play Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham Origins on PC for the prettier graphics and improved physics, but the Games for Windows Live requirement pushed me into playing both titles on console. That's no longer an issue. Similar to BioShock 2, the pair has moved away from the service as Microsoft winds it down in the coming months.

If you own either title on Steam, just wait for the update to do its thing -- Arkham City now has a Mac version included. Otherwise, you can redeem your retail copy through the platform and, even if it's just the vanilla game without DLC, you'll end up with the upgraded game of the year edition. Unfortunately, this will result in having to start a new save file. Think of the Riddler trophies.

To accompany this news, the games are on sale. Arkham City and Arkham Asylum are down to $7.50 and $5, respectively, for the weekend. These are the game of the year editions, too!

Storm's Adventure with OnLive Part 1...

...Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Just finishing the title, that's all. It was a little too big for the textbox. Well, I'm not expecting a very positive response on this one (or any of my videos for that matter)...more

Smash Bros. 4: Hopes, Fears, and Predictions

When it comes to writing about Smash Bros, I'm a control freak. If Destructoid goes more than a day without posting about the series, I get impatient. Smash Bros is actually a big reason why I got started here. Back in 2007, ...more

Weekend Playlist: Summer Jams

Summer is officially in full swing and most of you are probably sitting inside and playing Destiny. I dont blame you though, if I had a PS4 I would be doing the same exact thing.
