Batman: Arkham Origins

Having replayed Arkham Asylum and Arkham City (the original PS3 versions rather than the Return To Arkham remasters), and intending to replay Arkham Knight soon, I thought I'd give WB Montreal's prequel another go, and I'm so glad I did. Okay, so it closely follows Rocksteady's template, it's a little less refined, and there are a few bugs and small design issues that have been overlooked (I was able to hack a keypad and grab at least one Riddler data pack before I should have), but I still think this is a worthy, and maybe underrated, addition to the Arkham canon.

Rocksteady's games are no doubt the superior of the bunch, but I do think WB Montreal do some things better. For one, I think Origins tells a better story than any of Rocksteady's efforts, which to me always fell flat with their "big" reveals. Eight assassins all gunning for Batman on Christmas Eve is an ace setup, and we get to see a younger, angrier Bruce Wayne making his mark on Gotham and forging relationships with both friends and foes. The wintry and festive backdrop also make exploring the map more appealing, even if half of it is reused from Arkham City, and the bosses are a cut above - for the most part - too.

I was going to jump straight into Arkham Knight next, but I might check out Arkham Origins - Blackgate before that, giving me a fine excuse to dig out my PS Vita (unless I opt for the console Deluxe Version, of course). Can anyone recommend if it's worth a look?

@TimG13 I'm always glad to see people give Arkham Origins a try, because they're usually pleasantly surprised by what they find. It's my favourite Arkham game, hands down, for many of the reasons you describe above. The story, characters and atmosphere are near-perfect, and the gameplay is a refinement of what came before, in spite of the occasional bug or glitch. The boss battles are also superb, with Firefly's being near the top (if not, at the top) of my all-time favourites list. Glad you had such a good time!

Arkham Origins: Blackgate is an interesting one. As a 2.5D Metroidvania, it feels quite fresh whilst also retaining that crucial Arkham flavour. It also continues a few plot elements teased in the main game, which might be part of any continuing backstory in the WB Montréal bat-games. There's a lot of backtracking (it being a Metroidvania) and some of its level designs can get a bit confusing, but I've enjoyed it enough to platinum it twice; first on PS Vita and then again with the PS3's Deluxe Edition. I think it's a better fit for handheld, but either version is enjoyable enough. It's the time they tried to do something a little different. Your actual mileage may vary but sure, I'd recommend it.

@RogerRoger Origins may very well be my new favourite Arkham game now, too, even if I know it's not necessarily the best. I remember enjoying it when it originally came out, but in revisiting it all these years later my opinion seems to have grown more positive. Here's hoping WB Montreal's long rumoured new Batman is even better.

And I'll definitely be checking out Blackgate on Vita at some point soon. Thanks.

I've been playing Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction for the first time (despite seemingly owning it for many years), first thing I noticed was that its 60fps and still looks great, so why on Earth is the PS4 game 30fps? This plays so much better because of the framerate and I really hope we get a few more of these on PS5

Older than I care to remember but have been gaming since owning a wooden Atari 2600 and played pretty much everything inbetween.

Decided to play Ico for the first time since playing the original on PS2, way back in 2002 - that eventually led me to playing Shadow Of The Colossus in 2006. I have bought the Classics HD version, and have my PS3 wired up to a monitor via HDMI - so I'm looking forward to playing this classic with enhanced visuals.

I can't remember that much about it, aside from the aesthetic and a handful of puzzles, so I'm looking forward to going in and discovering the surprises the castle has to offer.

I also have Shadow Of The Colossus on PS4 - that is a seriously special game for me, but despite buying it at launch, I still haven't played it. I am waiting for the right moment...

I was playing Infamous and plan on getting back into it and playing through all of them.

I just started playing Defiance online. It's a pretty cool game, but the only issue I have is that the L2 and R2 buttons don't work when I use a PS4 controller so currently looking for a good third-party controller that also has the L2 and R2 buttons as the throttle type and not the click type.

After my mum bouncing off Yakuza 0 due to the sheer amount of text, we decided to put on Red Dead Redemption since she loved the 2nd one so much. It looks absolutely dreadful on my TV but that’s probably to be expected. I’m not sure I thought it would be quite so blurry with a terrible frame rate but at least the core game’s pretty good. Never been a big fan of the gameplay in that one but plot-wise it’s definitely a treat.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@nessisonett It certainly isn't optimised for PS3, is it? That being said, I found it playable enough, with its bugs and glitches hardly game-breaking, so you should be able to see the story through. Hope you and your mother have more fun with it than I did!
