Tanner Reviews Batman: Arkham Knight

Batman_Arkham_Knight_Cover_ArtYOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE! You were supposed to be the saving grace to Triple A Gaming! The one game that we could all point to as a way to prove that the industry wasn’t a pile of shit! This was your chance in the sun Batman: Arkham Knight AND YOU FUCKED IT UP!

Now that isn’t to say the game isn’t good. On the contrary, the game has some really fun and creative parts to it and continues to expand the mythos that the Arkham Series has laid out in front of us. But we will get to those in a few minutes. Can’t spoil all the details in the opening paragraph, right? Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Batman: Arkham Origins”
