‘Batman: Return to Arkham’ Is Looking Purty For PS4

  The Arkham games need no introduction, natch. I’m kinda obligated to provide one, though, what with this whole ‘typing words at your faces’ thing being my job and all. I don’t want to be called up to the top floor of Egotastic Towers for a talking-to from the boss. Rumor is, he’s got a pet dragon up there.  

So, anywho. Arkham Asylum hit in 2009, and was one holy hell of a revelation. An action adventure starring everyone’s favorite camp-costumed vigilante, and that rare thing: A licensed game that didn’t suck monkey nuts. I was there for the sack of shite that was Superman 64, and the Arkham titles gave me a little closure, a little trust back. They taught me I could love again. Or, y’know, something.

A couple years later, Batman: Arkham City arrived, and was just as well received. The Arkham train kept running for a while after that, with prequels and such, but it’s just about run its course now. Which can mean only one thing: Keep that goddamn gravy train running, and start all over again.

And so we arrive at Batman: Return to Arkham. This is a spangly PS4 package of both games, another of the HD remasters which are freaking everywhere just now. It hits soon, October 18, so prospective buyers are going to want to take an ogle at it.
