He could be. One of his buddies is Tim Rogers. If you don't know who that is, the long and short of it is "batshit crazy kotaku writer who lives in Japan and talks about what great bowel movements he's had and how awesome the water pressure over there is." He also on occasion has interesting things to say about video games.

Oh man, Tim Rogers. Now it all makes sense. (I really want to make this reply about 65 rambling paragraphs long, but I just don't have it in me)

I just got done playing Origins a month ago and surprisingly liked it (was lukewarm on City, unfortunately).

I wasn't really ready for a new Arkham game to come out this year anyway; even if it was Rocksteady.

I can live with a Q1-Q2 2015 release.

I never played Asylum, LOVED City, and I've heard the story is actually probably the best of the three in Origins. About the only negative to that game I can spot for someone in my position is the lower maximum glide height and using almost the same map layout. Given the current Batman sale on PSN, is Asylum still THAT much better a game removing your familiarity with the franchise and talking strictly mechanics, storytelling, etc?

Some will defend Asylum to the death as being the best of the three (and I understand why, to an extent), but I really think City is by far the better game.

That said, Asylum is still one of my favorite games ever, and I highly suggest getting it. It'll feel stripped down and almost hilariously easy after playing the other two, but it's still an Arkham game, and it still has the most brilliant sequence in the series so far. (one might say it's a ... gas?)

Man, this game is intense. Janky as all hell (at least in SP, haven't tried MP yet) but very fun so far.

I've gotta go with apples. I mean, oranges are the better citrus, but apples have a much more interesting core.

Nope. Could never stand it.

How is this a thing that I just watched? It makes the Duke Nukem Trilogy trailer look like a masterpiece...

GTA V for first-time playthroughs, Arkham City for (fifth) replays. Man, both those games are so much fun, and insanely replayable.

Speaking of Batman, I really enjoyed the Cold Cold Heart DLC that came out yesterday for Origins)

Bloodlines is a broken pain in the ass, even with patches. It's also fucking fantastic. Go for it.

The thought has crossed my mind in the past that I'd like to own the largest amount of Ghost Dad novelizations allowed by law and/or basic human decency (a little less than 6,000), so I support this madness.
