Tips, tricks, highlights, scores & stats
Holy guacamole, Batman! Arkham Knight sure does have a lot of buttons. Left (d-pad), up (d-pad), up (analog stick), square -- it's got 'em all.
Grab any modern day controller and there are more buttons by default than on the ...
Batman: Arkham Knight may be the third and final title in Rocksteady's trilogy of Caped Crusader games, but its first add-on travels back to before the origins of the series. Okay, well, it's the first add-on save for th...
"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...
Don't say 'Origins!'
Let's start at the beginning, shall we? Batman: Arkham Asylum, through and through, is just a good video game. It took a simple concept ("Be the Bat"), introduced the free-flow combat system and the Predator stealth...
Beat out Witcher 3 and Arkham City
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, ...
While the PC version of Arkham Knight was busted enough Warner Bros. stopped selling it on Steam (probably wouldn't have happened if Steam didn't just start allowing refunds), some users are making the best of a bad situatio...
Console graphics obtained!
Rocksteady has posted the following update on the Steam Community for PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight, which you can read below.
Basically, they've acknowledged all the problems people were having and already release...
Rocksteady "working like crazy" to fix the issues
Rocksteady co-founder and game director, Sefton Hill, supports Warner Bros.' decision to pull the borked PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight from sale.
In a tweet late last night, Hill also added that the studio's "best ...
[Note: This review is based on a retail PlayStation 4 copy of Batman: Arkham Knight, not the PC version that is so broken publisher Warner Bros. temporarily delisted it from sale]
If the difference between the real Batman and...
Hold onto your sides
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.
After all of the high-steppin' with its "better on Nvidia" ads, you'd think that some extra care would have been given to Batman: Arkham Knight's PC port, right? Well, like Mortal Kombat X, Warner Bros can't seem to launch a ...
How long before someone notced
Writing for the Internet is strangely calming. I know that if I make a mistake (which I do, frequently) that I can quickly edit it and it’s gone forever.
Unfortunately in the world of book publishing, that’s not s...
Batman: Arkham Knight is finally here, and the consensus seems to be that it's not only a proper ending for the Rocksteady trilogy, but it may be the best game yet. But there's a major source of contention, and that's th...
Holy graphic cards, Batman!
The minimum spec requirements to run Batman: Arkham Knight on PC have been updated overnight.
As gamers attempting to play Batman: Arkham Knight on PC continue to experience problems, it has now been acknowledged that AMD gra...
Arkham late Knight
A select handful of reviews for Batman: Arkham Knight have popped up on the net this morning. We don't have one up and we likely won't have one ahead of its Tuesday release. In fact, it's looking like I will be heading out to...
Legends live on
Like The Wallflowers (and David Bowie before them), we're talking heroes, if just for one day. And, in just one day, Batman will likely again prove himself a hero in Arkham Knight. That's sort of his thing.
In this rather po...
'Greatly compromised' statue
Ugh, what is this, Batmantoid!? I just wrote about how the exclusivity of the retail-exclusive DLC expires a few months after release, but there's one other Bat-thing to note, which is that WB has canceled the $200 edition wi...
You still have to pay
Okay, let's unpack the headline. Batman: Arkham Knight is being published by Warner Bros. Interactive. WB is a consumer-gouging publisher, so Batman: Arkham Knight has a $40 season pass with Batgirl, $100 premium ed...
Batman: Arkham Knight is out next week, but in case you were interested in seeing it in a live, non-trailer setting, here you go. So colorful!
Look at all the settings you won't use!
Like the previous games in the Batman: Arkham series, Arkham Knight's PC release will feature extra bells and whistles courtesy of Nvidia. If you don't have an Nvidia card, you'll always have this trailer to imagine wha...
Swingin' that bat like Sammy Sosa
Harley Quinn continues her crusade against authority, and she does it in style in this new Arkham Knight trailer. Cops fall one by one via Louisville Sluggers to the dome, explosive children's toys, and swift (non-Taylo...
As a direct follow-up to the "Officer Down" video, WB's posted another seven-minute long Arkham Knight gameplay video detailing what Batman does best. There's some information gained via duress, a smooth 55x combat comb...
Of course it does
Because WB has to monetize every single facet of their games (hello pay-for-fatalities on top of a Season Pass and lots of paid costume DLC), Batman: Arkham Knight will also feature more pre-order bonuses beyond its $40 ...
Hey Mike Ehrmantraut and Denethor
Warner Bros. has just revealed most of the cast of Batman: Arkham Knight -- which is incidentally more information than it has spilled on its upcoming $40 Season Pass.
It'll feature Jonathan Banks as James Gordon, John ...
Can you handle it
As I've said in the past, I'm glad Batman: Arkham Knight is only focusing on current-gen platforms. Maybe then it can reach its full potential as an expansive open-world game. On PC it's looking increasingly likely that ...
His mother would not buy him a Nintendo and he became resentful
If the headline sounded like "Arkham Origins," don't be frightened. Rocksteady is back and WB can't hurt you any more. Except with delays into late June. But that's a "it's for your own good" hurt, like forcing you to eat you...
Close out the Arkham trilogy in style
Sony knows the sales potential of Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Knight, and it's using the highly-anticipated game to try to move a few more PlayStation 4s. A limited edition console was announced today that shines as brig...
Until many more people own Xbox Ones and PlayStation 4s, publishers will continue to put out remastered games, otherwise known as "safe bets." Even then, they'll probably continue. Here's another pair of 'em to start your wee...
To late June
Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed yet again. While it was set for a June 2 release, it is now is on pace for June 23, as revealed by the game's official Twitter account. To help tide you over, they've posted a new trail...
The darkest bright
The upcoming, M-rated end to Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy has a lovely new trailer out today. And this one isn't polished, artsy CG the series is known for. Some well cut in-game footage, a view of the rogues gallery teaming ...
