Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Initiation

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 co...

Violence & vindication photo

You should feel bad, but games don't want you to

You monster. Outside of the casual and educational spheres, violence abounds in games. Even Mario is violent, albeit not gratuitous. Combative, at least. Much of the game is purely avoiding obstacles, but eventually some form of cartoon, in...

Batman: Arkham Asylum Steam Keys fail due to DRM

I hate DRM with a passion, but I feel I owe its creators a fruit basket. After all, it gives me more free target practice than the rest of this industry's bullshit. Take what's been happening with Arkham Asylum -- new purchases aren't worki...

Batman villains we want in Rocksteady's Arkham sequel
