I realize I’m late to the party as Harley Quinn’s Revenge has been out for three weeks now. But seeing as Batman: Arkham City (review) is one of my favorite games, I feel obligated to review it. Also, some of you may remember I was doing a little series of posts back in November called “Judge’s Batman Extravaganza.” Basically, after getting hooked on Arkham City, I went and watched all the live-action movies and a majority of the animated shows; I was on a Batman binge. I had meant to finish it up by the end of November, then forgot, then partially revived it in December with a post about LEGO Batman 2 (which is awesome by the way), the forgot again. I figured it would be a good time to revive it now to commemorate the release of the awesome LEGO Batman 2, which will be the final post in this series. Expect that sometime next week–hopefully. For now, here’s a review of Harley Quinn’s Revenge.
For the longest time, I’ve never given PlayStation Plus much thought. Sure, they advertised free games for the service, but after giving up on the Xbox, paid online services seemed abhorrent. At one time or another, I thought that the ability to play console games online was a premium service that was well worth the cost. Later on I realized I can get almost the same experience on just about every other gaming device, but for free. Subscription fees just for the ability to play games online seemed rather silly. As you can imagine, I remained determined not to spend a dime on any sort of subscription service.
However, while watching the E3 2012 Sony conference, I realized there may be some pretty good incentives to try out PS Plus. With titles like Infamous 2, Just Cause 2, and LittleBigPlanet 2 offered for free, I decided to try the service. While I probably would’ve bought Infamous 2 if it never went up for free, I never would’ve bothered giving Just Cause 2 or LittleBigPlanet 2 a chance. And that would’ve been a damned shame, as I’m finding Just Cause 2 to be insanely fun. I can do crazy shit like attach a car to a helicopter, fly high up, swing it around, and fling it. And to think, were it not for PS Plus, I would’ve missed out on this title.
After being told countless times, by fellow MoarPowah writer Kaushik, to play the game, I’ve finally gone around to beating the well-known and much-acclaimed The World Ends with You, or TWEWY.
At first glance, I figured I’d hate it. There’s no other reason I’d hate something at first glance other than the fact that the art doesn’t agree with me. TWEWY has the same art style as Kingdom Hearts, and yes, if I needed a solid reason to dislike Kingdom Hearts, it’d be that I can’t stand the character designs. And I’ll go ahead and explain more later on, but as for now, let’s see if TWEWY managed to change my mind and prove to me that it’s not just all hype. Let’s dig in, itadakimasu~
Hey guys, this is Fenrir here with a quick bite to think about. In light of Judge’s post on sexuality in video games, a recent article shared on Kotaku reminds us that women who are slighted by video games’ will find that it’s not the games themselves, but rather the industry that is problematic.
