All accounts point to the possibility that I may explode soon. The reason for this impending doom is that it appears someone has found a way to bring my nerdy infatuation with Batman and my nerdy love of good video games together in the new game “Batman: Arkham Asylum.”
I’m wary of most super hero games, far too often they suck (Marvel: Ultimate Alliance being one of the more notable exceptions in my book). So, a few months ago when I got wind of this game I assumed it wouldn’t be that good.
Yet, I have been given reason to finally get excited. To say reviews of the game are glowing would be an understatement. Best of all the news I have come across regarding the game is that it is insanely fun, is deeply rooted in a passion for the source material, and that it focuses a good deal of Batman’s detective abilities. Sometimes Batman’s status as “The World’s Greatest Detective” is left out of popular manifestations. The fact that the sleuthing plays a primary role in gameplay is quite exciting to a nerd such as myself.
That being the case, it may be too much for me to handle, thus I may blow into bits, or at the very least spontaneously combust. I need that sort of thing this summer, so I can’t wait until I can afford to get my hands on this bad boy. However, if I disappear, never to be seen again, you’ll know what happened.
