Welp, it can’t be helped. I am not playing Batman: Arkham Knight today. The game hit stores and Steam only yesterday, and surely millions of you fair readers are playing right now. But not me. Not Sean Ian Mills. Not the Henchman-4-Hire. I…I have no excuse! Unless you count money as an excuse. That counts, right?
I love the Arkham games. When Arkham City was released while I was on vacation, I bought it while still on vacation and played it at my friend’s house! The List of Six I wrote on Easter Eggs in Arkham City almost single-handedly kept this blog afloat with page views through the early years! But now I’ve got nothing. I don’t own a Playstation 4, I don’t own an X-Box One, and I wasn’t able to afford all of the expensive computer upgrades in time.
I’m not playing Batman: Arkham Knight this week. So you might be asking, what the heck else could I possibly be doing? Join me after the jump to find out!
I just…I just couldn’t do it. Upgrading my PC to handle Arkham Knight would have cost way too much money. I…oh God…I won’t be playing Batman: Arkham Knight today.
Oh man. That’s beautiful. The narration, the action, the characters, the Robin, the music. It’s…it’s gonna be a great game.
OK Sean, no more crying! You’re gonna save money! You’re gonna put a little aside each week! You’re gonna look for sales! You’re gonna do this! Yeah!
Though I’m seeing a lot of negative reviews in the Steam store. Apparently the PC version is bugging as all heck!
E3 was held this weekend, the big video game foofarah where everything is announced and all our dreams come true. I heard there’s going to be a new Gears of War, a remake of Final Fantasy VII and a bunch of other cool stuff. Since I still haven’t upgraded my graphics card on my computer, I’m likely going to be very behind on all of these new games. But I decided to collect some of the trailers, because they look neat, and because it’s a Tuesday.
First up, South Park: The Fractured but Whole, a sequel to The Stick of Truth.
Then we’ve got a new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight, which comes out next week…and which…and which I won’t be able to play yet. Oh…oh god…
Then we’ve got two trailers for the new Star Wars Battlefront.
There were tons of other video games announced this weekend, but I think these three were the tops for me! Now I just need to sell a kidney…
We’ve got our first close-up look at Robin from Batman: Arkham Knight! I think he looks great!
He’s very similar to his look from Arkham City, which is expected, and I liked Arkham City just as much. I dig the armor, I dig the haircut; I dig the whole thing.
But…I don’t yet have that upgraded PC or the money to make it happen. And now I’ve got less than a month to get it together!
I have been waiting patiently for this news, and it’s finally here! Robin is going to play a major role in Batman: Arkham Knight! He’ll be joined by both Nightwing and Catwoman, so that’s even more awesome! But Robin is the one I really care about, and his cool new costume! Check out the badass new game trailer to see him in action.
According to what I’m reading, there’s going to be something called ‘Dual Play’ that allows players to switch between all these heroes on the fly in the middle of the free-flow combat. The video offers some ways that this could work, but we’ll have to see it to believe it. All I really care about is that Robin is definitely going to be a part of this game! Awesome!
Of course, I can’t yet even play the game. I don’t own either of the consoles that can play it, and my computer isn’t nearly strong enough. So I guess I better start saving up if I hope to get that new graphics card by the end of June!
