I Am Gotham Review – Batman (2016) #1-6

This story doesn’t just introduce us to a new Batman run (well, I guess Batman: Rebirth did that) and a new Batman writer in Tom King (Grayson, The Vision). I Am Gotham also introduces two new superpowered superheroes, the flamboyant sounding duo of Gotham and Gotham Girl. For King this first story is all about setting up how he’s going to run the show, the sort of writing you can expect, and the tone of the book. Starting his run […]

Modern DC Films – Thoughts on Suicide Squad, The Killing Joke, Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition, Assault on Arkham

Yeah, everyone knows that when it comes to films of comics Marvel has had more than just a little bit of an upperhand in recent years. Though it’s interesting to think that 2005’s Batman Begins ushered in perhaps a “new era” of superhero film. It’s also interesting to note that the oft though pinnacle of Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight, released in 2008, the same year Iron Man also kicked off the now mega successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. With […]

DC: Universe Rebirth Review

I’m not the biggest fan of DC in the world. Heck, I’m not even sure I’d call myself a big comics fan. Sure, I do love many comic books, but as far as comic “universes” go? I don’t really care. I read runs people recommend me, I pick out specific graphic novels — I love the stories for what they are. DC: Universe Rebirth is the initial issue of DC’s new big crossover event, though it may not be the […]

The “Oscars” – Games of the Year 2015 Awards

Last year when I wrote my games of the year list I threw in some bonus awards besides the month-on-months and overall. Now, there are even more bonus awards, because if you head on over to Rice Digital me and my coworker Peter gave our picks on a variety of categories, from Most Frustrating, to Most Awe-Inspiring Moment. It’s a good read. Without going on too much, here are my normal Games of the Year awards. Just Fuck Off Already […]

Batman: The Court of Owls Review (2011, vol. 1) – Starting the New 52 Without Skipping a Beat

The Court of Owls collects the first seven issues of the Batman (2011) series — the first few issues of Batman after the series-wide New 52 reboot. But, you’d be forgiven about not knowing there was a reboot at all if you just picked this up. In a way I suppose that could be the purpose. It’s not a complete fresh start, everything’s just been moved back to the default. Batman (as with other New 52 leads) has been made […]

Part 1: Cost – My Thoughts on Playing Games on Console vs Playing Games on PC

This article’s featured image is from Gamespot’s pretty great Batman: Arkham Knight PlayStation 4 & PC comparison article. It’s become one of the more iconic images when it comes to the fairly outrageous mishandling of the PC port of Arkham Knight. There’s a lot of in-depth information about it, most of it an interesting read. The initial comparisons such as Gamespot’s are a good look, and others about the latest PC patches still being poor, and the statements from Warner […]

Mad Max Car Combat & 10 Tips to Keep in Mind

Mad Max‘s ground combat is more than little bit inspired by the Batman: Arkham series, but the car combat is a lot more original. Vehicle based fighting can be hit and miss in games at the best of time. Even Batman: Arkham Knight‘s very own Batmobile combat, while functional and competent, seemed to miss the point of the rest of the game. Mad Max on the other hand is all about the cars. There’s a pretty big variation on how […]

Mad Max Ground Combat & 5 Tips to Get Good at It

A lot of games have taken inspiration from the Batman Arkham series’ excellent combat, and Mad Max, also published by Warner Bros. is no exception. It has every reason to when the combat in those games is so satisfying. But, as with Arkham’s other imitators, it’s not quite as good as what you find in the Arkham games. With that said, it’s hardly the worst imitator out there. Though it doesn’t reach the great heights of something like Sleeping Dogs […]
