Batman: Arkham Origins Second Opinion

When Firefly is the highlight of your Batman game, you have a serious problem

HIGH Everything involving Firefly, minus his dialogue.

LOW Everything involving Bane, including his dialogue.

WTF If I need to sneak into the police station without drawing attention, why am I fistfighting the entire Gotham Police Department?

Holy bat-mulligan, Batman!

Batman: Arkham Origins

HIGH a strong premise, great story beats, and Deathstroke.

LOW it’s super buggy, and counters/takedowns don’t always work.

WTF why can’t I pummel Deadshot until he’s unconscious?!?

For review, I've been playing two games at once… Not my favorite thing to do, but it is that time of the year and they aren't at all alike, so playing one is kind of like taking a break from the other. The first is Batman: Arkham Origins, as mentioned in the last post. I'm finding this is a very interesting title on many levels, but not necessarily for the reasons that you might expect.

It's not a backlog title, but I managed to get a copy of Fire Emblem: Awakening for Nintendo 3DS, and I've been putting some time into it… it's not title I was eagerly anticipating, but I needed a portable title and word of mouth from people that I trust was almost universally positive.
