King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Anything King Arthur related I’m there – no sell required, you’ve already got me – so I was excited about this film from the start.

I was disappointed, but the film does warrant a watch and I think there is a lot of good there. A powerful ending, fun lines and thoughtful moments are the high points here but some inexplicable plot choices that left you trying to figure out what was going on while it was happening brought things down.

If you aren’t at all excited about the legend of King Arthur from the start, then I think you will have a harder time getting into it.

Batman Arkham Knight – Coda

Batman: Arkham Knight. I feel like I don’t need to say anything more – I’ve been building up to this game through the previous games in the Arkham series, comics, the prequel novel, a movie; all this leading to the Dark Knight’s greatest challenge.

The Dark Knight on a dark night

My goal in this post is not to cover my (many) thoughts on the game or series as a whole, but to establish the timeline:

  • July 30th – completed the main story
  • August 12 – complete (minus all the Riddler trophies) the Knightfall Protocol
  • August 19 – completed Batgirl, Catwoman and Harley Quinn DLC
  • August 20 – completed Nightwing and Robin DLC thus completing the game

I still have to get my thoughts collected on a few other pieces of related media (Batman Arkham Knight: Genesis, Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate, etc.) but I’ve worn the cowl for a considerable length of time and I can tell you it’s been worth the weight – a great overall experience and one I would recommend to any gamer.
