Batman Returns ION

If we absolutely must endure winter every year, I vote for enhancing things a little. At least the nuclear winters in games like Fallout have a bit of spice to them. We’d get to run around in underground bunkers, take G.O.A.T exams and generally forget about what grass smells like. That’s if we’re the lucky sods that could afford it though – being a ghoul doesn’t sound that enticing at all. And yes, I’ve been thinking about Fallout 4 all day. Haven’t you?

In honour of the imminent launch of Batman: Arkham Knight, today’s throwback is a reminder of just how far games have come in just over two decades. Batman Returns was a point and click title released back in 1992 – diving head first into the more detective elements of the caped crusader. It’s still rather great to play, even with the incredibly repetitive soundtrack that was common back then. Or so I believe – I was only born the same year.
