I'RRRMM BERTMEN

I was lucky enough this week to get a review copy of Arkham Origins. However, I only got it on Wednesday, which means that a review was completely out of the question, because you need more than two days to knock one out. So I did the next best thing. I became Batman and recorded my adventures for you all to enjoy.

Here’s the first hour of my batmannery for you to enjoy, because I love your criminal faces so much. MY PARENTS ARE DEEEEEAAAAAAD!

And if you like that, then here’s a spoileriffic look at some of the boss fights you’ll encounter when you go pick the game up today.

I’ll have a review out soon, as I’ll be klapping the game this weekend. And for the next bunch of videos, I’m going to see if I can get Geoff to dress up as Robin so that we can form a dynamic duo. FOR JUSTICE!

            Michelle. Halle was a freaking joke and Anne wasn’t Catwoman, she was some chick pretending to be a bad girl.
