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.

I never played through any of the other Star Fox games (although I remember going to a friend’s house to specifically watch him play the original), but when we picked up and his and her’s DS’s it was a game I wanted to enjoy.

And I did – the game showed me what I had been missing out on in the franchise and I really enjoyed it.

Our oldest played the game for the first time on July 15, 2017 – hence my reminiscing.

Back in the LAN again

Fact: The majority of social gaming is done online.

Cool Follow-Up Fact: Nothing can beat gaming with your friends in the same social space.

A nice surprise this year was being invited to game with a group of guys who meet on a semi-regular basis to LAN, with Halo 4 as the game of choice.

My regular multiplayer is Halo 5 so getting back in the previous groove proved a little trying, however soon enough I was slaying with the rest of the pack.

(Not that I was any good, I just felt I reached my “normal” level of skill 🙂 )

Many thanks for the invite and for the making of new memories while fondly remembering the old ones of LANs gone by.
