Myst would be Scott’s #1 game every year, but there’s new games to play instead. Scott is the Editor-in-Chief of this very site in which you are looking at.

Having a license plate read “TIHSHO” is pretty cool thing when you read it backwards. What’s also cool, is how many videogames came out in 2015, so picking only 10 games out of entire year of great games is no easy task. Here’s what Ed found to be the best of the year.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that Batman: Arkham Knight for PC is now available for purchase. Re-released in conjunction with the latest PC update, Batman: Arkham Knight for PC now offers downloadable content (DLC) parity with the console versions of the game (with the exception of platform exclusives). PC players now have access to Photo Mode, Big Head Mode, Original Arkham Batman Skin and more.
Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady Studios confirmed all remaining downloadable content and updates for Batman: Arkham Knight.
Just released last week is the final DLC for the month September, GCPD Lockdown. It is an “Arkham Episode”, instead of an AR Challenge to the likes of the pre-order DLC for Harley Quinn Story Pack and Red Hood Story Pack, and the post-release DLC, Batgirl: A Matter of Family. This DLC is disappointingly short, and does little to further the story as it is it takes place after the ending of Batman: Arkham Knight. This is another case to do more, but ends up doing less.
September has brought a lot of DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight. There’s been a couple of Crime Fighter Challenge Packs, the original Arkham Asylum skin, and the next Batmobile pack from the 2008 Christopher Nolan film, “The Dark Knight”. While the 1989 Batmobile Movie Pack failed to be something more, the 2008 Tumbler Batmobile Pack follows suit with its predecessor, making it even more troubling for the direction of these Batmobile Pack DLCs.
The post-release DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight has been a bit lacking in quality. There’s plenty of fan service coming from Rocksteady as it is their supposed last outing with Batman. And as such, they are going all-out with skins, story missions, and additional side missions. Some of them are pretty good, while others including this one are so close to being great, they just miss the mark. The 1989 Movie Batmobile Pack falls into the latter. While not as much content as Batgirl: A Matter of Family, it is the month of August’s major DLC release, with other DLC being a skin pack. The former, is a nostalgic trip back to 1989 that misses every opportunity to be something special, but still manages to excite with what little it does offer.
Set before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum, comes an adventure featuring Batgirl before her incident that left her paralyzed and forced to become Oracle. Batgirl: A Matter of Family takes place on a confined island that has Gotham City looming in the distance, not all that unlike Arkham Asylum. Though, what gadgets you start with in A Matter of Family, is what you end with. Lasting only an hour and some change, the short time spent playing as Batgirl goes by too quickly for it to be a meaningful add-on, and is a shame for being Batgirl’s debut in Rocksteady’s series.
“I am vengeance. I am the night. I am tired of the Batmobile.” – These are words not spoken by the Dark Knight, but by me. The Batmobile isn’t the most egregious thing to ever grace a videogame, but Batman: Arkham Knight leans heavily on the usage of it. Though not everything to do with the Batmobile is bad, just the sequences that require the tank mode. Beyond that, gliding or driving through the entirety of Gotham City is an exhilarating and exciting take on this making you really feel like Batman.
