@DrPockets000: I love Futurama, but I haven't seen it in ages. Makes me want to get a free trial of Netflix and blast through it, lol. How many seasons is that?
I've also been contemplating PC gaming again, but the $200 price point of Windows is way too steep, and on top of that I need to get a decent GFX card. For now I am stuck gaming on 360. Considered trading up, but not sure it's worth it :|
Good to hear you're doing better.
Oh, and I think as a manager you're doing the right thing in running a tight ship. I imagine it's a fine art to balance people's emotions and a business, so kudos. Plus Iron Fist of Hastings sounds pretty badass.
" Fuck the fact that Yahoo Games is at #1. I'm fairly certain 95% of that 22,000,000 are they same group that find Jersey Shore really hilarious. I would provide a venn diagram, but it'd really just be one circle with a very small growth. "
lol. Alright, if you insist. Not sure where that connection would be made though. =P But yeah, as far as I can tell, it's just a flash game site. Not really on the same level of a GameSpot, IGN, or Giant Bomb, but whatever. "
Weirdly enough, I hadn't even looked at the No. 1 spot. I only have eyes for GB apparently.
Destructoid is a mixed bag. There is some good stuff over there, but I think it's just not my style at the end of the day.
You mentioned a news section too. I think that'd be great. It'd be cool to see what you're picking up on in relation to the stuff I am trying to write about... which reminds me, I need to look up some contact info! :)
No juicy morsels about the plot were given away, but according to the announcement, made on the 17th via the brand new Arkham City community portal and community page (http://community.batmanarkhamcity.com) gamers can look forward to around 12-15 hours of play from the story alone.
Another 12-15 will be spent on various side tasks and challenges that run alongside the main narrative, dubbed Arkham City Missions.
Hill promised that the new missions, which can be tackled at any point in the game upon finding them, will flesh out the world and its inhabitants:
“Some of my favourite moments are in these missions, including tracking down a deranged serial killer, solving a murder mystery, forming an alliance with a one-time villain and confronting the Riddler as he attempts to prove once and for all he is better than Batman.”
Fans of the Riddler’s treasure hunting challenges from the first game will be pleased to know that even though Mr. Nigma finally makes an appearance to square off with Batman, he will still have left his mark on the city, leaving a trail of puzzles and trophies to uncover.
Rounding out his message with promises of a revamped Challenge mode, Hill leaves just enough shrouded in mystery to keep fans on the edge of their seats in anticipation of the game’s North American release on October 18th (19th Australia, 21st Europe).
