We've featured a few Batman: Arkham Asylum deals over the last few months, but we've finally got a handle on a great price for the Collectors Edition. You know, the one with the full-size batarang. Game are stocking the PC version for £22.99, which is a saving of £17 compared to Play.com. Console gamers will still have to pay a lot more, mind.
Batman: Arkham Asylum has been nominated for the coveted BAFTA Best Game of 2009 award, and its plain to see why. Its masterful blend of stealth, bone-crunching melee combat and advanced gadgetry delighted gamers and critics alike; but its main selling point is that it makes you feel like Batman while you're playing it.
The Collector's Edition goes one step further by providing some of the coolest videogame extras we've ever seen. £22.99 will buy you a 'making of' DVD, exclusive DLC code, a journal detailing the Arkham inmates (which would have been worth the price of admission by itself) and the crowning glory: a 14-inch batarang mounted on a display stand. This impressive piece of memorabilia genuinely looks the business, and no self-respecting fan of the caped crusader should be without one.
Now you can feel like Batman in real life just by glancing over at your Batarang; without having to wear your y-fronts over a pair of tights. Unless, of course, you're into that sort of thing.
