What an awesome day when a new Batman game releases! Batman: Arkham Origins is the latest game in the “Arkham” video game series. Although not being developed by Rocksteady Studios, the game is set five years before Arkham Asylum and features a younger Batman. The story is set around Christmas. The game will feature similar gameplay as the former two games as well as introducing multiplayer gameplay. There is an enhanced detective mode so players can scrub through the evidence in order to figure out information. Gotham City is even more expansive as there will be never before seen areas to explore and players will see how it was before it became Arkham City. There will be new enemies as well as familiar characters to encounter.
I am excited.
At New York Comic Con earlier this month, Troy Baker (voice of the Joker) delivered a riveting performance as he recited the Joker’s monologue from the popular, classic Alan Moore graphic novel “The Killing Joke”. Thank goodness it was caught on video for all of us that were unable to attend!
