I’ve Decided Not to Get Gotham Knights…Yet

Gotham Knights is probably my dream video game. An Arkham-style Batman game where you play as Robin? Are you kidding me? And then all the other Robins, and Batgirl? Are you kidding me?! This is everything I want!

But I can’t play it. I don’t have a Playstation 5 or the X-Box equivalent. And my gaming PC is too old and out-of-date to handle the game. I don’t…I don’t have any easy way to play. And I can’t really afford to rush out and buy an expensive new graphics card just to play this one game. I just…I just can’t. I’m going to have to be patient. I can’t play it yet.

But at least that launch trailer was cool. And maybe I’ll get lucky and the game will be super buggy on launch anyway. That’ll make me feel better. Besides, you never want to buy new games on Day 1 anymore. The developers are always coming out with new updates over time. Horizon: Forbidden West has been getting regular updates for months now. Since I bought it and beat it within Month 1, I didn’t have transmog.

So yeah…I think I’m going to make my peace with waiting on Gotham Knights. Wish me luck.

I Don’t Know If I’ll Be Able to Play Gotham Knights

I am very much looking forward to the upcoming video game, Gotham Knights. An Arkham-style game where you play as all the Robins? Especially the Tim Drake Robin? Sign me the heck up! And the game looks great! We just got this new Villains trailer this week.

The problem is, I don’t own a Playstation 5, and my gaming PC is pretty old at this point. So I just don’t know if I’ll be able to play and enjoy this game when it comes out. Will the world suddenly shift and PS5s will become available? I doubt it. Am I going to spend hundreds of dollars to upgrade my PC just for this one game? Hells nah. So I guess all I can do is watch and enjoy these little trailers…

Gotham Knights comes out on Oct. 25.

Some Cool Robin Comics Are Coming!

November is apparently going to be a big month for Robin comics! And if you know me and comics, you’ll know that I love Robin! So you best believe I’ll be checking out these two mini-series when they arrive

First up is Robins, written by Tim Seeley, with art by Baldemar Rivas. This comics won the Round Robin contest that DC held recently where they announced a dozen crazy new comic ideas and had fans vote for their favorite. Turns out fans really want more Robin!

Robins is going to be about all of the former Robins getting together to talk through their histories. And a mysterious woman claiming to be the first Robin?! L’gasp! This one sounds like a solid exploration of what it means to be a Robin. I love that kind of thing! Hopefully it doesn’t differ too much from my own thoughts on what it means to be a Robin, because I can be a fickle fan.

Next up is Robin & Batman, written by Jeff Lemire, with art by Dustin Nguyen. This one just seems to have popped up out of nowhere, with Lemire and Nguyen a solid creative team.

Robin & Batman is going to be an exploration of Dick Grayson’s early days as the Boy Wonder. There already exists a Robin: Year One comic, but I have no problem adding more continuity! Dick Grayson as Robin is a fun time period and definitely open to exploration from modern creative teams.

I especially love how young Robin gets to have proper pants and boots on that cover. The original Robin costume may be classic, but that does not make it good or worth using in a project like this.

Both of these comics sound awesome and both of them will be bought, read and reviewed by me! Doesn’t that sound exciting? I sure hope so.

Some Sweet Gotham Knights Artwork!

There hasn’t been any more news on the upcoming Gotham Knights video game, but I’m still very excited to play! And over the past few months, the Twitter account shared these cool pictures of the four playable characters. And since it’s a lazy Monday, I felt like sharing! I think these are all nifty costume variants!

Gonna have to get used to the cape-less Robin…oh man, I can’t wait to customize my playable Robin!

I’m very excited for this game! I hope it comes out for the Playstation 4. It’s supposed to come out sometime this year…so let’s get our hopes up!

Check Out These Awesome Bat-Family Costumes!

We live in a golden age of live action superhero costumes! Gone are the days of moody black leather. Now superheroes on both the big and small screens get to dress in comics-accurate attire! And it looks great!

Yesterday saw the first official images of the new Batwoman and Red Hood costumes from the second season of the Batwoman TV show and the third season of the Titans TV show respectively.

Here is Javicia Leslie in costume as Ryan Wilder, the new Batwoman.

The Ryan Wilder character recently made her first appearance in the comics. Maybe she’ll become the new Batwoman in comics as well? Time will tell! I think she looks great!

Next up is actor Curran Walters as the Red Hood!

Walters played Jason Todd as Robin in the first two seasons of Titans. I haven’t seen the second season yet, so I don’t know what happened to him. But apparently it was enough for him to go full Red Hood for season 3! I need to start watching that show again. And I never did watch Batwoman to begin with.

To think I live in a day and age where there are so many superhero TV shows that I actively don’t watch some of them! I should be so lucky!
