zippdementia I'm best known for my extensive work in the fields of this and that. I tend to be better at that, though I have more fun with this.

I'm an odd jobber with an even personality who isn't afraid to roll with the punches but prefers to dodge them when able.

Title: Two amazing games
Posted: August 27, 2009 (01:22 PM)
I am dreadfully ill. Have been for nearly three weeks now. But now it's okay, because it's given me time to play two amazing games.

Been playing Batman Arkham Asylum, first of all. Good lord... True's review really says it all, though I hope I can find more to say because I plan on writing a review of it myself once I'm done working my way through it. It's surprisingly long and there's a lot to do, especially if you get caught up in the Riddler's puzzles and the challenge mode (I am proud to report that I rank number 12 in the world at challenge number 2).

The other game is Wolfenstein. Good lord. I have enjoyed the Wolfenstein games in the past (not the originals, I never had the honor of playing the stealth ones) and I knew I would like this but... holy shit, I didn't expect to like it as much as Half Life 2. Seriously. It's the best shooter I've played since HL2. It has just as much, if not more, ambience, even smoother controls, great sound, and a surprisingly good and twisted story that leaves you wondering which of your fellow rebels is going to break under the pressure and turn you into the Nazis.

I know it's not the obvious title, but I highly recommend that any fan of FPS pick up Wolfenstein.

As for Arkham Asylum, any fan of FUN should pick that one up.

You're an outstanding reviewer and I have no doubt you'll be able to pull it off. The cool thing about Arkham is that it has so much, and honestly you could write a review based entirely on other points and still manage to fill up six pages. It's that good.

Thank you, True! I'm glad you mentioned Serious House on Serious Earth in your review because it really IS the source material for this game. It's incredible to think that a Batman VIDEO GAME would mark one of his greatest adventures, but I rank this up there with that book.
