Batman: Arkham Knight- A rousing, though flawed, end to Rocksteady’s Batman saga

NOTE: The following review is based on my experiences with the game on the PS4. Xbox One players should have a similar experience, sans the Scarecrow Nightmare missions found in the AR Challenges section of the main menu. As of this date, it’s been widely documented about the issues plaguing the PC port, with many being unable to play the game at all. Others have been successful by turning off certain elements to help the game run. WB has currently suspended sales of the PC port until they can fix the issues.

Rocksteady made their mark on comic book games with 2009’s Batman: Arkham Asylum. Using a solid story, some great voice casting, a wide selection from Batman’s rogue’s gallery, and terrific gameplay utilizing free-form combat they set the bar high for all superhero games to reach...

Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay – messing around with the Batmobile and some nice melee combat

Batman: Arkham Knight was released today, and I dove right into it as soon as the game arrived at my home. The game looks beautiful and controls nicely, with the story shaping up well in my four hours or so of play. Below is some of my gameplay footage, as I mess around with the Batmobile, work some things out, and wrap things up with a nice demonstration of the smooth melee combat. The footage is taken from the PS4. Enjoy!

Batman: Arkham Knight is now available on the PS4, PC, and Xbox One.

LEGO Jurassic World- Dinosaurs in all their blocky glory

It seems LEGO games appear on a regular basis, coinciding with blockbuster movies and just giving gamers their chance to collect studs and play with virtual blocks. So it’s no surprise that with Jurassic World stomping into theaters and all over box office records that we get a LEGO game tie in. And we get a full Jurassic experience, as the game contains all four movies- Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and of course the titular movie. Each game is composed of five levels and hits all the highlights of the films, faithfully recreating famous scenes and reciting famous lines. One note here: Because the game does recreate the movies so well, I’d recommend skipping the Jurassic World portion until after you’ve seen the film to avoid spoilers...

On this last full week of June we return to Gotham as Rocksteady wraps up its Arkham trilogy with Batman: Arkham Knight, coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Can’t wait to take the Batmobile for a spin. Also this week the multiplayer shooter PlanetSide 2  makes its console debut on the PS4, Devil May Cry 4 gets a special edition for current gen consoles, and Telltale Games releases episode 3, titled “Catch A Ride”, for Tales From the Borderlands.

Hitting the screen this week is Ted 2, Seth McFarlane’s follow up to his 2012 comedy about a foul mouthed teddy bear...

E3 2015: Overall thoughts and impressions

Now that E3 has come and gone, time to reflect on what we’ve seen, what worked and what didn’t, what has us excited and what has us shrugging our shoulders. I should note that I won’t be commenting on the PC conference, as I missed that one, so my comments are about what was shown at the conferences for Bethesda, Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, and Square Enix. I will say my overall impression of E3 2015 as a whole is generally favorable, though there were a few missteps. We got some very nice surprises in both games (Fallout 4, For Honor, Horizon: Zero Dawn) and features (backwards compatability for Xbox One) as well as a demonstration of impressive tech (the hololens)...

Kingdom Come: Deliverance E3 2015 trailer

Ubisoft will be delivering brutal medieval melee combat with For Honor, but Warhorse Studios will be adding the whole medieval experience. Like For Honor, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is based in history, not fantasy, so no wizards or dragons. What we will get is looking to be a fairly robust RPG with a beautiful world to explore and massive battles to participate in.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One in the summer of 2016.

Sony’s E3 2015 conference had it’s share of surprises, showing some gameplay footage of a game that’s long been silent, introducing the beginning of a new franchise, and showing gameplay for one coming to the PS4 after a great trilogy on the PS3. Off we go to the highlights of the conference.
