There’s always some sort of sale on Steam, so we try not to post each and every time something is discounted, but when it’s 75% off both Batman Arkham games? Come on son! You know we have to be on high alert for that!
So the weekend deal over the coming days is this: both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City cost $5 and $7.50. Yes, you can get what was arguably the game of 2011 for $7.50 and if you haven’t played it I would heartily recommend it. Actually I’m a big fan of both. Arkham Asylum is about as close as you can get to a Batman experience and it sort of reminds me of Metroid Prime, which is pretty much my favourite game ever made, so that’s high praise.
No doubt this sale is timed in preparation for the release of Batman: Arkham Origins, which comes out next week. Lost in the hustle and bustle of GTA V, Pokemon and next gen consoles I can’t help but feel as though folks are sleeping on the new Batman game. Every single showing I’ve seen of Batman: Arkham Origins has been stellar and if you’re looking for a reminder of just how good this series is, look no further than this sale.
Get on it!
