Rocksteady succeed with the 'difficult second album', smashing expectations and delivering a darker, deeper and more delicious experience than before. Go, go and buy it now, you won't be disappointed! - Batman: Arkham City Review | Bats Is Back (9/10)
You've probably already made your way through Arkham Knight assuming you didn't run into any performance issues with your PC version and we definitely think Arkham City is worth another play-through at only £2.75.

Three Batman games for only £10.79 seems like a bit of a no brainer to us. The Batman Arkham Collection consists of:
If you're really good you have about four days to get these all played and completed before the Arkham Knight next Tuesday. I must point out that £10.79 is purely on the assumption you hold an active PS+ subscription, otherwise it is £11.99.
It's Steam weekend sale time with the focus pointing towards the Dark Knight with some fantastic savings on Batman titles:

Whilst you are taking advantage of the crazy LEGO sale over at Nuuvem you might as well pick up a few of these Batman titles at their current price reductions:
We totally understand that at these prices it may feel like you are Robin them, but hey, grab them whilst you can! Remember that use of a VPN such as Hola (set to Argentina) will be required to complete the checkout stages.
Credit once again to jaystan for the heads up.
Get Games Go have reduced their prices on a selection of Warner Bros. titles (Up to 75%) for 3 days! Batman Arkham Origins, Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition & Lego Marvel Super Heroes are just a few of the great titles you can snap up for £3.74

and can be picked up from Nuuvem for only £4.32.

According to a new report, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are being remastered for PS4 and Xbox One, where they'll release as a single compilation.Click here to read more...
This is ludicrously cheap, netting you Batman: Arkham City GOTY, Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition for around £3.83 (R$ 14.99). It's just a shame that Arkham Asylum isn't included here, as that's probably my favourite. If you've somehow missed out on the Caped Crusader's cracking Arkham antics, be sure to rectify that now. If you like stealthy action-adventure titles, you really won't regret it.
Green Man Gaming have launched their own 12 Days of Christmas deals programme, and unfortunately they've chosen to kick it off with Batman.
Let me be clear, though, I love Batman. It's unfortunate because Bundle Stars have their insane Batman Complete Collection bundle going on, which will net you every Arkham game available for the low, low price of £7.79.
If, however, you're on the lookout for an individual deal, and don't fancy paying more than £4, check out Green Man Gaming's Batman deals by clicking here, with individual titles like Arkham Origins available for £3.74, and Arkham Asylum for £2.49.
Bundle Stars are running a huge sale on Batman Arkham titles right now, and you can knock off even more than the 75% advertised by using the voucher code SUPERNOVA25 at the checkout:
The Batman: Arkham games are some of the best action-adventure titles around, even Origins had its moments.These'll be a fine set of reminders of why you should be very excited for the new-gen Batman: Arkham Knight, which arrives early next year. Check out the recent Batman: Arkham Knight trailer here.
It's also worth noting that the SUPERNOVA25 code will work on all of the Bundle Stars bundles as well.
Gamersgate have a massive 75% sale running right now for a number of Batman titles, and you can pick up the Batman Arkham Collection for just £20.
You can bag the individual titles from just £3.75, and if you want to throw the LEGO games into the mix as well you can click here to pick up the Batman Complete Collection for £27.50, though do be warned that it doesn't include the latest release, LEGO Batman 3.
Arkham City is a fantastic game, building on the success of Asylum, and delivering an irresistible game world to jump into and explore. The combat is tight and impactful, the traversal is an utter joy, and becoming the Dark Knight is just as empowering as before. GMG have had the GOTY edition down at this price before with a code, but if you missed that earlier this year, here's a great opportunity to nab a modern classic for the summer drought.

It's all about superheroes with this week's Deals With Gold initiative. As with the previous post, some of them are better than others, but we certainly won't turn our noses up at Arkham Asylum and City for under four quid apiece, even if you do need a Gold subscription to access these deal prices.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for over £20, though? BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Don't do it.Click here for this week's "Deals" With Gold >>
One advantage of being a Wii U owner is that prices on third-party titles drop quicker than on the other consoles. So, if you still haven't played Arkham City, we'd heavily recommend this version. This edition comes with all the DLC packed into the Game of the Year Editions, including the Harley's Revenge epilogue. Wii U specific features include an extra combat style and using the gamepad for Detective Mode scanning or steering remote Batarangs.

Most of us are beginning to get a bit antsy about the lack of news for Rocksteady's next Batman game, which at this rate we'll not see until next-gen. We envy anyone who hasn't yet sampled the latest game though and at a fiver we think you've waited long enough. This walled-off section of Gotham City is run by the inmates of Arkham giving us a best-of selection of villains to take on. Bats is still rocking the best melee combos on the market too, throw in some awesome gadgets and you're in comic-book heaven.

Coming in at £2 better than the rest, this is a smokin' hot deal. We feel obliged to tell you that you can buy the new Game of the Year Edition of the game for around £25 at many online sites though. However, if you're not bothered about a few DLC skins and the Harley Quinn's Revenge extra chapter then this should suit you fine. Batman's got his work cut out for him this time as he has a huge walled-off section of Gotham to clean up while getting to the bottom of yet another conspiracy. But thanks to an awesome array of gadgets and unsurpassed fighting skills, we think you'll enjoy helping him out.

It’s encouraging to see some premium downloadable content that attempts to expand on the single-player experience of a game. Like many games, Batman: Arkham City has seen more than its fair share of extra costumes and challenges for characters like Robin, Catwoman and Nightwing. But after the huge events at the end of Arkham City, fans will be excited to jump over the prison wall again to ruff up the inmates. As a warning, this DLC review contains spoilers for the end of the main game, so consider yourselves warned.
We begin the game as Robin, looking for Batman after he disappeared a few days ago. Bats went looking for some kidnapped cops and never came out. The Joker’s adoring follower, Harley Quinn is really losing it after his death and has taken over his steel works hideout. She’s even got a gang of goons, all kitted out in red and black to fit in with her style. Following a relatively tiny role in the main game, it’s good to see such an entertaining character get a better share of the limelight. After getting smashed down after playfully cart wheeling towards Batman in the church back in October, it comes as no surprise that she’s playing for keeps this time around.
After Robin’s intro, we get to play as Batman in the events leading up to his disappearance. For the most part though, this is Robin’s game. Chances are quite a few of you groaned then and fair enough, Robin is a complete tool. But let’s take a look at what he brings to the game. His fighting retains the same; attack/dodge/counter style that makes Rocksteady’s Batman feel so satisfyingly intense in combat. Robin being a bit soft requires him to use a Bo staff to take on enemies rather rely on unarmed skills like Batman and Catwoman. He does have a few cool takedown moves though, especially the double takedown on unsuspecting pairs. His single silent takedowns, choking thugs out on top of his back, takes a bit too long though and sometimes results in getting spotted.Click here to read more...
Rocksteady's exceptional open-world brawler Batman: Arkham City will be getting a Game Of The Year Edition, Warner Bros confirms today. As well as containing all the DLC packs released thus far, this new version will also ship with Harley Quinn's Revenge: an all-new story expansion described as the "final chapter." We've got a brand new trailer below.
The Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition is set to release Stateside on May 29th, but us Brits will annoyingly have to wait until September 7th. However, Harley Quinn's Revenge will be available to download separately on PC, PSN and Xbox Live from May 30th.Click here to watch the Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition reveal trailer >>
Batman: Arkham City is an absolutely cracking game. If you liked the first title, be prepared for Rocksteady to just ramp everything up and bust Bats' adventuring wide open. A grand, sprawling epic, The Game Collection have just dropped the PS3 version down to under £20, saving you a quid or two on the nearest competition.
Batman: Arkham City is bigger and probably better than its predecessor, just about. It's certainly packed with more nefarious fiends and fan-service that before and it's undoubtedly one of the finest games of 2011. Now, thanks to ShopTo, PS3 owners can pick it up for under £25, saving you several quid on the nearest competition. But I'd be quick about it if I were you.
