On catching up.

So I guess it has been over a month since my last post. Honestly I haven’t really felt all that motivated to write much. Been pretty busy time at work which is usually where I do all the writing. So just to give a few updates I guess. I bought a new computer, and it took almost a month for it to actually come in. I wound up getting an Alienware Area-51 desktop, 4 TB hard drive, 16 GB ram and an NVidea Geforce 970 with 4GB Ram. It’s a beast, and I’ve barely had a chance to use it. Within the first couple of days I started having issues with the network card telling me it was missing registry entries or something. I haven’t had time to really dig in to it, so the only solution I’ve managed to get working at this point is turning the PC off, … Read more…

On Batman: Arkham Knight (part 3) – DLC/Season Pass

This might be a short post day, as I feel this topic is more of a personal opinion post than actually discussing the game. So when the game was announced they also announced a season pass that would have new content for the game once a month for six continuous months. The first story DLC was recently announced as a prequel story that allows you to play as Batgirl going up against the Joker & Harley Quinn sometime prior to the events of Arkham Asylum. So it falls somewhere between Origins (timeline wise this would be first) and Asylum where she has switched to her role as Oracle. From what I can see in the trailer this does look like an interesting addition to the story, and from what I’ve read there will be additional easter eggs and collectibles to find. I’m just a little bit leery about making this … Read more…

On Batman: Arkham Knight (part 2) – Side Missions

So in the last post I talked a bit about the Batmobile and how I felt like it was a bit overused. Today’s topic is side missions, or, how I got 100% completion in Arkham Knight. One of the selling points for Arkham Knight was that it is an open world environement allowing you to go anywhere in the city at any time (for the most part). I’ve found that any game that sells itself as an open world game usually has at least some amount of side missions in it. I’m sure people have different opinions on stuff like that, and normally I am a bit mixed on them, but the ones in this game at least felt fluid enough that I didn’t mind doing them. It also helps that you HAVE to get 100% completion to get the true ending to the game. That said, today’s topic is … Read more…

On Batman: Arkham Knight (part 1) – The Batmobile

So I realize it’s probably been about a month since I last posted anything. Work kind of got in the way of things. I got suckered in to helping develop & test the mobile app that our clients wanted which has meant lots of hours put in at work. This leads to a lack of motivation to use a computer outside of work, which is subsequently why I play more console games. Anyways you’re probably here for the gaming not the “why isn’t he posting” q & a. I’m going to try to post a few different topics talking about various aspects of Batman: Arkham Knight, which I recently finished. I will try to keep anything I talk about spoiler free, however I do feel like there will be one with spoilers which I will note in the header and repeatedly throughout. If, after writing a post, I feel like … Read more…
