The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Here's Hoping Batman Survives Another Onslaught Of Villains In Batman: Arkham Origins

Warner Bros and WB Montreal hope Batman: Arkham Origins can satisfy fans and critics alike as Rocksteady passes the good-Batman-game torch on for more mysterious projects. After Batman's Wii U outing, I think the team in Montreal will do a good job for a few reasons:
  • We've played it tons, the gameplay feels great, and freeflow combat is still the best gameplay for beat-em-up fans and Batman.
  • They're adding multiplayer, but a completely different team outside of WB Montreal is working on it. Splash Damage from the UK are creating the new thugs-vs-thugs-vs-dynamic-duo online modes so Batman's single-player adventure still has plenty of work in it.
  • Bigger city, new gadgets... the prequel line is kind of silly and it seems true that it's an excuse to continue using the Arkham name, but I don't care what they call it so long as there's a ton of gameplay, exploration, and moody music from the Warner Bros orchestra.
  • New villains: Black Mask, Deadshot, Anarky, Copperhead, Firefly, and more.
  • Warner Bros still has access to the Bat-encyclopedia, so I expect just as many nods to classic Bat-literature and media in addition to more easter eggs.
The launch trailer above doesn't exactly spell it out, so I thought I would. Looking forward to October 25th? Batman: Arkham Origins launches world wide on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC this Friday.
