Batman: Arkham City


Across the Arkham titles, the developers have included at least two incredibly well-hidden easter eggs. Who could forget the one in Arkham Asylum that was so stashed away that Rocksteady itself had to reveal i...


So far, the Batman Arkham Origins Season Pass has been a steaming pile of poop. Buyers have received some extremely underwhelming skin packs, and a piss-poor series of challenge maps for their cash, with the promise...

I was pretty disappointed with Arkham Origins. Maybe not as crushingly disappointed as Jim was, but I still felt like it was the weakest entry in the Arkham saga so far, and Warner Bros. Montreal didn't really do anything to make me confident in the future of the series. Sadly, the newest DLC doesn't do them any favors either.


Are people still annoyed that Humble Bundle has expanded its scope to feature AAA games? I found the practice a little weird at first, but hey, if it means steep discounts on substantial games and the charity component is in ...


Musings to what Rocksteady Studios' next project will be has been stirring in the minds of many after the lackluster reception of Batman: Arkham Origins. The London based developer, made famous for the first two Batman: ...
