Valve recently overhauled Steam’s review system, putting a larger focus on recent perspectives. The move made sense. Games are no longer static works. They constantly evolve thanks to updates and programs like Early Access. The system is, by and large, very useful, providing percentages that give narrow and wide…
On a rooftop in Gotham City in the video game Batman Arkham Knight, I had to beat up six ninjas without getting hit. It took me 46 attempts, one after the other, during one frustrating hour.
Last night I learned that if you happen to land on an enemy vehicle in Arkham Knight, Batman will automatically drop a remote mine, leap to safety, and disable the car. Most games would probably just make you ragdoll out and go flying, but I guess most games don’t star Batman.
Warner Bros. has announced the Mac and Linux versions of Batman: Arkham Knight have been cancelled. If you bought a copy, the company said you should request a refund from Steam. This never seems to end, does it?
I’ve actually written about this moment in Batman: Arkham Knight before, however briefly. While I was playing again on PC, Batman somehow outdid himself, pulling off a midair cockpit-ening that’d make the Flying Graysons envious.
This week, Batman: Arkham Knight got a few challenge mode maps lifted from Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. The maps were selected by fans on the game’s forums, and those fans’ actual forum conversations have been transcribed into the game itself.
I saved the Ra’s Al Ghul mission in Arkham Knight’s Season of Infamy expansion because I had high expectations. My reward was one of the best moments from any Batman video game.
Driven to break the law to extend the frozen life of his fatally ill wife, Mr. Freeze arguably has the most poignant backstory of all Batman’s archfoes. This week, the video game version of the frozen-hearted felon gets some ice-cold closure.
The newest unlockable Batman costume in Arkham Knight doesn’t want your money. It wants your time, Caped Crusader. You don’t just have to complete the game to get it. You have to complete it at 240%.
The final story-centric add-on for Batman: Arkham Knight throws multiple archvillains at the Dark Knight when it comes out on December 22. And the Season of Infamy is apparently taking some cues from Arkham Asylum, the first Batman game from dev studio Rocksteady.
Batman: Arkham Knight’s latest add-ons focus on Catwoman and Robin, with both characters taking on Gotham’s bad guys in the aftermath of the game’s ending. Is it worth dusting off this summer’s latest Bat-game? Not really.
In the ongoing saga of Batman: Arkham Knight on PC, another patch has dropped, and some players are reporting fixes to hitching and other issues. Of course, that doesn’t change the fact the game isn’t ever getting SLI support.
This isn’t an action figure. It’s a sculpt from toy company NECA that stands a farcical 6’ 2” tall.
You’re probably tired of hearing about problems with Batman: Arkham Knight on PC, and, believe me, I’m tired of writing about it! But there’s something weird going on with the game’s Steam page (again!), with reviews for the game getting flagged as “pre-release,” despite having been written this week.
Following last week’s re-release of a game still broken for many players, Warner Bros. is now offering full refunds on Steam copies of Batman: Arkham Knight until the end of the year. Everyone who purchased a copy should take advantage.
When Warner Bros. decided to start telling Batman: Arkham Knight on PC again, you might have thought this disastrous story was finally over. Not quite, as it turns out. Despite months of patches, the game still has significant problems.
Four months and several patches later, Batman: Arkham Knight on PC has resurfaced on Steam. Before Warner Bros. pulled it down, however, Steam users had pummeled the game with thousands of negative reviews. Now, those reviews have been flagged as “pre-release.”
Warner Bros. is selling Batman: Arkham Knight on PC again, and anyone who’s bought (or buys) it before November 16 will get every Arkham game for free. A “community challenge pack” will arrive first for PC owners in January, and the DLC that’s already come out on consoles should be coming for PC players soon.
Four months after being pulled from sale due to poor performance, bugs and various other inadequacies, the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight goes back on sale next week, along with all the DLC early PC players have missed.
