The Batman Arkham games are 75% off this weekend

This is an actual Batman character

Because these are the gaming deals that the public deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now when there’s work to be done around the house. So we’ll hunt down some deals. Because we can take it. Because these are not just hero games. A watchful bargain, a silent discount on the Dark Knight games.

Here’s the listing of all the Batman games that are getting a discount this weekend:

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition – $4.99
  • Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition – $7.49
  • Batman: Arkham Origins – $10
  • Lego Batman – $4.99
  • Lego Batman 2: Super Heroes – $4.99

Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are pretty much essential games in any library. Asylum introduced a great formula of fighting and hunting down super-criminals, while Arkham City expanded upon the world of Batman.

I’m still of the opinion that Arkham Origins is a quick cash-in title that added very little to the franchise, with gameplay that doesn’t match up to the first two games, something that diehard fans would notice. But at $10, at least it’s a cheap cash-in.

As for the Lego games, they’re pretty simple, yet entertaining. It’s your typical Lego game, but with more bat-flavour. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with that. And don’t forget, this will likely be one of the last bargains that you get to enjoy with digital games, before that new Goverment tax kicks in.

What, you expect the new and improved Nkandla 2.0 to be built with road levy, state funds and BEE taxes only?

      1st of April, around the same time you have to figure out what part of the news is a joke and what part is actually real.

        It’s not for gamers, it relates to ALL online purchases. It affects anyone that makes an online purchase that would bypass the local retail purchase.

    How does this work for people outside South Africa? Do we claim our tax back or do we suffer the same fate as you guys?
