Oh, you think the internet is your ally. But you merely adopted the teaser trailer; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn’t see the review scores until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING!

I’m still kind of torn up about this upcoming Batman game. See to me, Arkham Asylum was one hell of a start, before Arkham City took that ball and added as much as Batmanly possible to that franchise whether you liked it or not (COUGH! “GEOFF” COUGH!). What worries me, is that Arkham Origins won’t be going in a new direction, something that the game actually needs.

Sure, there’s an expansion of several elements in the game already, such as a more detailed detective mode according to Destructoid, as well as several new gadgets, but otherwise it’s business as usual. But then again, this might be a decent starting point for newcomers to the franchise, I said while being completely diplomatic.

And it doesn’t hurt when a short movie for the game is released that puts the films to shame either. Ezio Auditore himself, Roger Craig Smith is voicing this Batman, and the game is due out on October 25. Just before Assassin’s Creed 4.

Should be an interesting match-up.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
