My thoughts on the upcoming "Gamer" movie, and Arkham impressions.

   0


I'm leaning toward the assumption that Gamer will suck ass, but there are very small rays of weird, postmodern hope to be found in the basic premise.

I went to an Arkham Asylum midnight release with Davis, and spent around three hours playing it.

I like it.

I'm kind of irritated at the optional collectibles, mainly because I really really want access to all the challenge rooms but am also really really bad at finding shit (and I found a Riddler map that I assumed applied to the entire island, but only applied to the area I was in, and then I was like "aw damn," but then Harley Quinn showed up and started swinging back and forth and laughing at me while I fought goons and I was like "aw yeah" so it was alright).

I dig the combat -- it's shallow, but satisfying and at least not a button-masher. I like the stealth sections even more, though I do hope they get a bit harder. I've only been discovered once or twice, and I've never died. Still, it's just plain goddamn satisfying to batarang one gun-wielding shithead while glide-kicking another, then taking them both down.
