Dear Diary. Today I couldn’t think up a witty or interesting introduction for the weekly wrap. I think I’m losing my touch… I think I’m going insane! What does this all mean? Am I destined to be nothing, a mere shadow of the void? How will people know what the highlights of the week were without something to lead them into it? They will never know!
It’s been three years since Arkham City was released way back on October 18 2011. Three years since Rocksteady expanded their vision for a Batman simulator and opened the gates to create a sequel that was bigger, more ambitious and bolder than the original game, Arkham Asylum. Much like the original game, Arkham City was filled with secrets and challenges. And in another sense of the familiar, it had a secret which no one has found until today.
The 94.7 Cycle Challenge is finally here! I’m doing it for charity and I’m really looking forward to it. I did the race for the first time last year, clocking it in around 5h30m. People keep asking me if I’m aiming for sub 5 this time around… the answer is a simple no. I’m perfectly happy just surviving and finishing the damn thing! If you don’t see me on Monday, tell my imaginary girlfriend I always loved her the most <3
For a villain larger than life, the Joker has been strangely absent in comics lately. Sure, he popped up in the recent Death Of The Family arc and a few other appearances here and there in which he made life hell for not only Batman but his entire extended family. But at the same time, there was something off about this Joker. Something missing. And in his next big act of terror, you can expect to see an even more unhinged clown prince of crime watching Gotham burn.
It could be said that I have a bat in my console belfry. Batman: Arkham Knight is a damned pretty game, make no mistake, as it’ll most likely push current-gen systems to their limits. One thing it won’t be doing however, is setting tongues wagging as to which platform has the best version of the caped crusader, as developer Rocksteady is going for some of that console parity mojo before the game releases.
I really had plans to fill my weekend to the brim with gaming. Being Portuguese though, my schedule just filled up with a bunch of family gatherings. So many uncles and aunts and cousins, WHERE DID THEY ALL COME FROM? Goodbye Saturday and Sunday, I will miss you so!
Once upon a time, a vegetable started interning at Lazygamer. “Let the cabbage do the round up,” they said. “He’ll hate it,” they said. “HA!” said the brave cabbage, as he rounded up the news and accompanied it with the cutest kitty pictures the Internet has to offer. THE END! Man I’m great at story telling, I bet none of you have any idea who the murderer is! Is it Geoff, the sneaky Asian who gives out graphics cards without the necessary adaptors? Darryn, the caped crusader whose weakness is large mobs demanding selfies? Zoe, the innocent lass who secretly starves her kittens? Or is it Sandy, that spy who has not updated his Steam profile? LEAVE YOUR THOUGHTS BELOW!
So Just Dance 2015 has released their launch trailer and the game hits shelves and online stores in 2 days.
We’re right in the heart of the gaming storm folks. It’s the second week in a row with two big launches, and it doesn’t look like things are slowing down. I’m loving it, but the gaping black hole that has taken over my wallet seems to have a different opinion. If you need an organ, I’m your man.
As far as I’m concerned, this weekend is all about anger. People will gather at The Dome to vent their frustrations, throw rocks at each other, and talk at INCREDIBLY LOUD VOLUMES. Isn’t that what the rAge expo is all about?
I had plans of hibernating in bed, playing 3DS solidly for the entire weekend, then I remembered I’ve got to get my ass onto a bike and get training. This sadly means I need to venture into the outside world. The sun is such a cruel mistress! Anyways, here's the news you might have missed this week.
So, how do you write a generic introduction to an article you ask? Step 1, pretend like you know what you are talking about. Step 2, fluff it up with some random words to add length. Step 3, check to see if the paragraph seems to be long enough. Step 4, conclude violently.
Brace yourselves… Christmas is coming! Sure it’s still like 3 months away, but I know it’s around this time of year when the malls start smacking out all the Christmas decor. I’ve written to Santa asking for a new PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, New 3DS, New PC, and a million bucks. I reckon if he gets the letter early enough, he can make it happen for sure. I’m not being too greedy am I? MUSH RUDOLF, BRING ME MY LOOT!
The Arkham Knight! A foe that can match the Batman both physically and mentally! A menace equipped with his own army, gadgets and an axe to grind against the dark knight. The Arkham Knight is a brand-new foe, with an identity that is somehow tied into the events of the previous Arkham games. But who’s really hiding underneath that mask? We’ve got a list of the usual suspects, and we’re taking all the bets we can before the cops shut us down.
