PS3 Retail
- Batman: Arkham City
- Ben 10 Galactic Racing
- Everybody Dance
- JASF: Jane's Advanced Strike Fighters
- Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine
- Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One
- Rocksmith
- The Sims 3: Pets

The Gamestop down the street is doing a midnight opening for Batman (and, I can only hope, Everybody Dance). I would go, but I'm too busy meeting people on rooftops, fighting crime, etc.

(nothing for PSP)

Yep, Batman is a first day purchase for me. At my Target, they are giving out Dark Knight on Blu-Ray or DVD with purchase of the game. I like this as I have seen the movie a few times, but I don't own the movie. My only hope is that this game is longer than the first Batman game.

The gameplay area is 5 times the size of Arkham Asylum, so you're probably getting your hopes answered.





I'm Charlie Owens, good night, and good luck.

Click Here (gamerankings.com). Average score; 97.78/100. I think you should like your chances of a longer game.

Batman update: I can not get in Joker's room. I electrified the magnet, now there's a crane that smashed into the door, the help tells me to move the crane out of the way, which could be great if I could figure out how.

software update: 3.73. Usually vague fix, but this one is OPTIONAL.

GameFly is doing a sale, though I can't find a link to it.

Had the same problem. R1 should send the electricity from the magnet one way, R2 the opposite. It works the same for the doors. One is up, the other is down. There's a hint on screen, but it's very poorly placed and I missed it the first few times.

Have you had the pleasure of getting irrationally pissed at the Augmented Reality challenges? Specifically the last four are great.

I just noticed this in the game; this may be why it's good to stop playing games when you're stuck and coming back fresh.

Did not try the Augmented Reality yet, got sidetracking with the search flare (and the side quest it kicks off) when it first came up and haven't been back out that way yet.

The frustrating side mission for me so far is the Zsasz "answer the phone" mission. The controls are difficult enough to get use to, and I end up using the grapple when I don't mean to and miss the phone (along with other times when I hit the wrong buttons). Other than that though, a great game so far, and even though it is similar to the first game, I love the open world nature of this one.

The controls are difficult? Nothing's changed from B:AA, you even have all your toys from that game on you to start. Granted, I've answered one phone so far, so maybe I haven't hit the hard ones yet. (I can see the "start at Ivy's lair, get to Wayne Tower in 15 seconds" payphone challenge coming 10 miles away in the fog.)



I'm Charlie Owens, good night, and good luck.

They just did this with PS+ a few months ago, and it was good. Worth playing, may need some help figuring out the stranger puzzles.
