PostSubject: Arkham Asylum   Sun Aug 30, 2009 12:07 pm

Played for about 2 hours, just got to the Scarecrow, and have to say its brilliant. The first upgrade I went for is the inverted hang: grabbing enemies and stringing them up by their feet so they end up being knocked out from the blood rushing to their brain is immense fun. Then glide kivking the other goons when they come to investigate just adds to the pleasure as you deliver the knockout punch when they're on the floor. Remote control Baterangs are awesome too. The dective mode makes things a little simplistic, but the game more than makes up for that.

I'll complete it then do the challenge missions as the Joker.

You do hallucinate, and you get trapped in the morgue with creepy voices and see his mother and father in body bags and a giant-ass scarecrow that tries to kill you with eye beams in a disintergrated Arkhum alternate dream world. Its mad, but awesome.

Hot damn I thought for sure that nothing special would happen but that sounds like a dream come true
Its probably a short game, not that i have time to play, but a solid rental it sounds

About 15 hours long if you do everything in the main game or so I'm told, but there are the added challenge missions that you can do as the Batman, or if like me you have it for PS3, as the Joker.

I've put Bane on his ass now. The only thing I'm not liking so far is the bosses seem quite easy. Hopefully they'll get harder, but I didn't lose a single bit of health beating Bane.

You only go up on the inside so far, like up lift shafts, and the grapnel gun makes it very easy.

One more thing that got on my nerves though: you see the Batmobile, which looks really cool like in the first Tim Burton film, but it gets trashed by goons and you don't get to drive it which is very dissapointing.

Indeed sounds a very atmospheric game that wants to appeal to the movie fans. I've been playing so many free roam games lately. Godfather and Saints Row. Both being awesome, but batman is hardcore Bale does the voicing right?

Mark "Skywalker" Hamill plays the Joker, and he's awesome, perfect: very different from his normal voice, but he does it so naturally. The dude who does Batman is suitably gruff, fitting in very well. All the voice acting is superb.

Well after I complete this, the next two games I'll buy will be Borderlands and Alpha Protocol, both of which are lengthy Action/RPG's, so I might just about complete one of them before MW2 comes out.

I have been laid back with gaming for a while. I do it every once and a while, but guitar has been my main focus.

Well, I mean, I like gaming, but between my 3 AP classes and guitar, I have so little time to game. I do a little bit of CSS every once and a while.

Yes, school is pretty intense for me this year since I'm a senior. I'm taking a bunch of semi-difficult classes. Or just time consuming classes.

That and I like to listen to music and play guitar, by the time I get the point where I want to play a game I'm tired and want to go to sleep

Well thank you my good man. You are also... how you say.... a "cool dude".

But yeah, I'm gonna f*ck with my internet or something and see if I can't make it work. A lot of times it says my Network type is incompatible so I can't party up and sh!t, and it's really annoying
