Around this time of year, reviews start to hit us before we truly realize how soon a game can be approaching. Mixed with paced out videos that show us a small bit but not too much also builds up to what everyone refers to is, hype. The hype has slowly been building for Batman: Arkham Origins for myself. I believe that Arkham City is easily one of my favorite games (If not THE favorite.) from this generation. They teased us with CGI videos, as they always do at first, before we see any gameplay for a while and... I see that it is pretty much more of the same in a bigger world. Usually that makes me worried but seeing how this is going to be a follow up to one of my favorite games ever, this can only make me excited. Hell, the annoucement of the collector's edition
makes me excited even more.
So, what games are you most hyped up about this fall? I know a close second for me is Grand Theft Auto V.
