Arkham Origins, Swap Force, Phoenix Wright and Gravity

For review, I've been playing two games at once… Not my favorite thing to do, but it is that time of the year and they aren't at all alike, so playing one is kind of like taking a break from the other. The first is Batman: Arkham Origins, as mentioned in the last post. I'm finding this is a very interesting title on many levels, but not necessarily for the reasons that you might expect.

Spiders!!!

LOW The delayed aiming mechanic

WTF "And if any of you nerds are puffy about Rogue being able to fly in this game when she can't fly in the comics right now, take a bath, move out of your parents' basement and maybe you'll get to kiss a REAL girl." Hey game, you know what? F**********ck you.

LOW Seeing all the arcs come together in the same general area.

GameCritics.com Podcast Episode 98: Big Red Potion Reunion

Sinan Kubba, joined by just one GameCritic in the form of Brad Gallway, takes the opportunity to have a Big Red Potion reunion by bringing his former co-host Joe DeLia and Eurogamer's Jeffrey Matulef onto the show. The quartet take a dazzlingly irreverent (and temporally irrelevant) dash through the games they've been playing, covering The Last of Us, Saints Row IV, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Ico, Wordament, Asura's Wrath, and The Wolf Among Us.
