bill-swift - April 3, 2012

Well another April Fool's holiday has, once again, come and gone. Today, millions of prank victims reminisce over their false winning lottery ticket and attempt to get that itching powder out of their underwear...after the fifth consecutive wash. April Fool's Day wasn't all bad though, seeing as Batman: Arkham City had a nice little surprise inside for players who chose to take a trip through Gotham.

Players who encountered the infamous 'Calendar Man' in Arkham City know that he hints at a few distinctive dates throughout the year, one of which is April 1st.

 Found in the basement of the Solomon Wayne Courthouse, Calendar had a message for players who chose to visit him.

Well, well, well, Batman, you listened well. You appear to understand the importance of dates, don't you? Let me tell you about this day, this day of fools.

I remember clearly that I watched her for days, waiting for the perfect moment. It was cold that March; it felt like spring would never come.

They drank coffee and she confessed her life lacked surprises. For six more days I watched.

April 1st, 5:22 a.m., I finished cutting through the brake lines of her car.

From the camera I placed on her dash, I saw her panic. My only regret? She couldn't hear me yell, ‘Surprise!'

After you listen to his disturbing little story, Calendar Man will hint at Mother's Day, stating, 'Mother's Day, time to pay. Remember to give your mother a call, Batman. Then come back and see me.'

What's even more disturbing than the fact that a psychopath is mentioning Batman's direct family, is that, as every good fan knows, Bruce Wayne's parents are dead. 

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 13th so make sure to mark it on your calendar (just scratch Mother's Day out if you need room to write it down).

While all of the interactions with Calendar Man can be seen HERE, isn't it just more fun to check back on him on the holidays for your little surprise?
