Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

7 Minutes with Batman: Arkham Asylum Demo
Posted on Tuesday, June 16 2009 @ 12:16:42 Eastern

Last week I was on my way to receive my Prototype game for the Xbox 360 console, when I went to give my receipt to a fellow GameStop employee. He informed me about the new releases (which I already heard and didn't bother me because he was doing a suggestive sell for more business.) that are coming out soon. He mentioned that they have the demo for Batman: Arkham Asylum on their PS3.So, knowing that it was coming out on August 25th, I decided why not try this demo on the PS3 while I wait for the game to release for the Xbox 360

I went on over and tried playing the game (I currently don't own a PS3). I notice the buttons on the controller were similar to the Xbox 360 controllers. This gave me advantage because I just substituted “X” with “A” etc. So here I am, finally going to test the quality of the game. See if it will definitely fill my waiting and patience boost. Loading...Loading...Start!

I entered the first mission; I saw the graphics in HD. My golly was I amazed by the structure and graphics of how much it was bringing from this game. Of course I had to go through the tutorials of what action commands I can do to eliminate my enemies. The combos in the game were laid out pretty well, easily I was able to counter most attacks (of course they were thugs and nothing compared to the bosses you're going to be fighting) by my enemies.

Many people need to realize that Batman isn't your ordinary super hero. The reason is Batman doesn't have these special powers, light speed running, heat vision, teleportation like any other super hero has. He's just an average person with skills of stealth and fighting. His high tech gadgets are one of the key things about Batman that everyone loves. Being able to use the "Batarang" while fighting the thugs trapped in Gotham's most scareful prison brings you the thrill about what Batman can and cannot do in a matter of situations

I was thrilled to see what the quality and maneuvering abilities of Batman can be like on the PS3. I expect the the same thrillment I deserved from the PS3 console and brought for the Xbox 360 console. After playing around about 6-7 minutes with the demo. I am positive that waiting for the game will surely pay off.
