Batman: Arkham Knight will be Game of the Year

When people ask me which game I think will be Game of the Year, I tell them that I believe Batman: Arkham Knight will be the Game of the Year, and here’s why:

Rocksteady’s devotion to making it great: With games becoming more and more ambitious, it’s becoming hard for a developer deliver an outstanding experience. However, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Rocksteady Studios have spared no expense in making sure the Batman: Arkham Knight has every opportunity to be the best it can possibly be, even delaying the title for a little extra development time.

2489213-bak_sshot057The “M for Mature” storyline: Batman’s story, more so than any other Superhero, is a story of overcoming incrementable odds. This means Batman must do everything within his power to defy these odds. Both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City earned “T for Teen” rating from the ESRB, and with Batman: Arkham Knight  being  “M for Mature” it shows that developer Rocksteady are trying to deliver a true to Batman experience.

No physical release for Batman: Arkham Knight PC in the UK?

2537476-bak_screenshot2UK retailer ShopTo.net have been told by their suppliers that Batman: Arkham Knight on the PC is only going to be sold digitally–no longer in physical retail packages.

Arkham Knight was originally expected to be sold both physically and digitally on the PC, but it seems like the recent, and unexpected, delay may have affected its physical sale on the PC.

Batman: Arkham Knight releases both on current-generation consoles and PC on June 24.

Bloodborne Review “the game we needed”

Bloodborne, the highly anticipated fantasy role-playing game from From Software, is the game we needed.

I’m not going to beat around the bush; this console generation has been horrible so far. It’s been horrible because the games, besides a handful of them, haven’t lived up to their set expectations. They’ve mostly been good to look at, but lackluster to play.

With that being said, Bloodborne isn’t a game for everyone because you will indeed die a lot–and I mean die a lot. But, when it’s all said and done, Bloodborne absolutely worth experiencing. I’m going to put this out there; I didn’t beat the game. Actually, I couldn’t beat the game. However, the large portion of the game that I did indeed play was “fucking awesome,” for the lack of better words.

Bloodborne puts the players in the shoes of a Hunter slaying beasts. As to why? It’s not made fully clear. But, let’s be honest; you don’t really need to know as to why. The story revolves around dreams and nightmares and, much like in any title from From Software, the story features own levels of complexities–more so than in Demon Souls and Dark Souls.

That dream and nightmare spectrum is probably the greatest thing Bloodborne portrays. It makes you question everything because nothing in the game conforms to the norm. Just like in real life, Bloodborne makes you question, what exactly is normal? It’s a perplexing question for any game to fundamental represent and Bloodborne does this perfectly. Continue reading
