Halfway to how it should've been!

Nice new race course, too
Aug 14
Oh man, it's got the ducks! Pretty good nostalgia hits on the course that comes with the Batman (1989) DLC pack and car. And we're removed enough that people might be forgetting how bad Arkham Knight's Batmobile segments wer...

Cool Keaton DLC rumored to be pushed

Play as the director of Batman: Arkham Knight in this goofy mod

Batman: Arkham Knight has a Halloween-themed Easter egg

'Spoilers,' I guess
Jul 23
I came home to my pal Kenny playing Batman: Arkham Knight. Unfortunately for him (and me), he spent most of this time doing the Cloudburst, stealth-tank fight, and swearing. I'm actually second-hand mad at the game all over ...

What the hell was Rocksteady thinking with Batman: Arkham Knight's Riddler?

Holy tedium, Batman
Jul 17
If there's two things Batman: Arkham Knight does too much of, it's the Batmobile and The Riddler. For the purposes of an upcoming project, I'm working towards a 100% completion rate in Knight, and I'm running into a wall...

Arkham Knight DLC adds 1989 Batman skin, old-school Batmobile

Jul 14
Batman: Arkham Knight just released the most substantive piece of DLC in its Season Pass with Batgirl: A Matter of Family. That isn't saying much as it is still slight. It's just not as short as the Red Hood and Harley chunks...

Review: Batman: Arkham Knight - Batgirl: A Matter of Family

The Killing DLC
Jul 14
Enough time has passed for me to make a solid judgement on Batman: Arkham Knight. For the most part, I agree with the sentiments expressed in Steven's review of the core game -- Rocksteady tried too hard in many respects, and...

Man do I love this character though
Jul 03

Warner Bros. reportedly well aware PC Batman: Arkham Knight was hot garbage

Jul 02
"I will say that it’s pretty rich for WB to act like they had no idea the game was in such a horrible state," an anonymous quality assurance tester on Arkham Knight told Kotaku. "It’s been like this for months and...

The Harley Quinn DLC pack for Arkham Knight is painfully brief

Less than 30 minutes
Jul 02
Harley Quinn is at it again this time with a pre-order exclusive DLC (yuck) for Batman: Arkham Knight. I have good news for everyone who didn't bother pre-ordering -- you aren't missing much. The entire add-on basically amounts to less than 30 minutes of the same core gameplay as Knight, minus the Batmobile-fest.

Batman: Arkham Knight has best 2015 week one UK sales

Beat out Witcher 3 and Arkham City
Jun 29
A reminder that Arkham Knight has "Batman" in the name and no volley of excoriating 7/10 reviews (or broken PC ports) can do it harm: Rocksteady's new Batman is the top-selling game of 2015 in the UK by its first week sales, ...

Really hilarious #GamerGate joke in Batman: Arkham Knight

Hold onto your sides
Jun 25
So apparently there is a small jab at #GamerGate -- or is it at everyone? -- in Batman: Arkham Knight. I guess it is pretty funny, right? Especially the part where they allude to a slur for gay people, right guys? Is everyone laughing? I'm not but maybe I like my humor a bit more highbrow.

Um, okay
Jun 24

This will be a nice eulogy for Batman if he dies in Arkham Knight

Legends live on

Looks so spooooooooky
Jun 15
Batman: Arkham Knight is getting some PS4 exclusive DLC that includes missions based around the Scarecrow, as well as some fancy costumes for Batman, including classic Batman.  One of the scariest trailers I've ever seen, with one of the coolest characters stuck behind console exclusive DLC. Too bad for Xbox One players, I feel for you.
