    Anyone who has the game Arkham Origins should pick up the Cold, Cold Heart DLC. It's great, has the same strong writing as the game itself, even though it's essentially retelling the story of Heart of Ice from B:TAS in the Arkhamverse. And the new eXtreme Environment suit (XE, because pool literacy is kewl) looks pretty boss.

    I've never even beat Arkham City, let alone Arkham Origins. I beat up Slade once though.

    Play Origins to the end. The last hour or so of the story is terrific. It's the one aspect of the game that's head-and-shoulders above Arkham City.

    That suit is awesome. Reminds me of old man Wayne's armored batsuit from Batman Beyond. I gave up on Origins long ago though.

    I almost never beat sandbox games unless there's a co-op component so that my co-op partner is forcing me through the story. I lack any sort of ability to focus and become endlessly distracted.

    Edit: Huh, Bayonetta 2 comes out in October on Wii U.

    I have only just barely played Asylum, despite having gotten Asylum for free and City for $5 :p

    The Cold, Cold Heart was good, just finished it up. Origins was flawed but I still enjoyed playing it. The latest footage for Arkham Knight looked great, pretty much what I pictured Gotham to look like.

    I liked Origins take on the mythology, especially the beginning of the Joker-Batman dynamic. (It also ties in nicely with the end of Arkham City).

    Plus, the creepy early days of Gotham are a great read. And Alfred's Christmas Eve dinner conversation. Priceless.

    Yep, since Origins was a little disappointing I was really positively surprised by Cold, Cold Heart.

    Btw. This also looks rather intresting.



    Though of course I will not forgive DC until they make a Secret Six movie/game. ;)

    Don't care about Halo 5 or the MCC... Destiny looks many times more awesome.

    That looks awesome! .............................but why are they using paper books? I mean yes yes, I'm impressed by this futuristic society you've created, but why are you giving me books? I don't want these. I have limited weight in my inventory and they're smelly and old.

    It's like datapads in Star Wars. Half the EU never got past the idea they're not for collecting like paper. It's like the GFFA didn't have wireless or something.

    Anyway neato game. I'm getting sick of the dark FPSs.

    Because a well made book can often stand a loot more then a electronic devise?

    When 900 pages you reach, look as good you will not! [face_not_talking]

    I'm not entirely sure that makes sense... but it made me laugh, so I stand by it.

    My problem with Destiny has always been confusion, ever since I first saw it I have been confused and not drawn in like Halo or more recently Marathon. Nothing they have released since the reveal has done anything to address my confusion and lack of interest, and it doesn't help that I primary interest is single player.

    900 pages? Pah, lightweight!

    Do like the look of that though, more interested in Destiny than I was.

    Shazam before Justice League and WW? [face_thinking] That seems an odd pick as filler. And I had to look up Sandman, I wonder how well that will do. The whole list seems a bit fake. If that is there intended schedule, the fast paced releases and obscure character choices are interesting.
    I just want a Zatanna movie. [face_praying]
