I recently began playing through the episodics extensions of 2015’s Batman Arkham Knight, with the lowest of expectations. I finished playing them excited about an unusual twist to superhero video games that shows up in the Robin episode.
I’ve been playing Batman: Arkham Knight, a game about a billionaire who never says thank you to his employees. I’m really enjoying it so far. I expected to have a good time flying around Gotham and beating up thugs. What I didn’t expect was how good the investigations would be.
I’m not sure Batman: Arkham Knight is a game anyone can ever finish. There’s so much to it, even if you skip the 200+ Riddler trophies and the mountains of “AR” challenges. I’ve needed to clear space on my PS4 and was considering deleting it, but then I realized there’s more interesting stuff in this game I’d never…
Batman: Arkham Knight, a video game about driving a secret tank, came out in 2015. The merch is still rolling in though, and while normally that wouldn’t be cause for general concern, this 33-inch statue is some hilariously intricate fanservice.
Batman: Arkham Knight spins one of the most ambitious video game stories ever told, and watching it thunder to its conclusion is like watching a 747 successfully land on a helicopter pad. It may not be known for its narrative, but that is its achievement—a spiraling and notably interactive tale that takes you inside…
A wall covered in writing in Batman Arkham Knight that baffled thousands of players for months was a brazen Easter Egg teasing October’s Arkham VR. It was hiding nearly in plain sight for nine months, ever since development studio Rocksteady snuck it into Arkham Knight via some DLC in January.
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.
