I like to say that Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, were the best Metroid games not called Metroid. They’re huge, sprawling beat-em-ups with great gameplay, writing and graphics, that do Batman justice, damn it. They really are the whole package in gaming.
On Friday, Batman: AO launched, and since we love Bats so much, the only thing really to do is play some B: AO on the PC, streaming it. So we can all enjoy it together like a happy family. I’ve already played the first few hours, and the game oozes quality. Sure, it’s more of the same, but is that really a bad thing? Decide for yourself as we start the game from the beginning.
Sign up to Twitch so we can chat, by the way. I really like communicating with you wonderful humans.
Update: That was super fun. All done after a 3.5 hour session mixing in some buggy multiplayer. The replay will be below as soon as it’s ready! Thanks for watching!
