Batman: Arkham Asylum - We will likely buy this one!!
« on: August 16, 2009, 16:59:03 »
Hunter and I downloaded this demo today and played with it for a good hour!! This game is SO fun!!  Some of the enjoyable elements include:

A fun fighting mechanic where you use X for agression and triangle for counter-attack defensive moves.  So if you see an opponent (they surround Batman often) about to attack, you can counter!

Battarang...just a lot of fun to knock someone down from a distance!

Glide/Kick - Nice way to take someone down from afar

Ground/Takedown - Once you knock someone down, you leap on them and knock them out with a special move.

Silent Takedown: - Much like Metal Gear, it's refreshing to sneak up behind someone and suffocate them until they pass out.

Sounds like fun. Is that a Lego Batman or human?

It's human...and very realistic looking.

Why...next time you're over...I'll show you...but I must warn you.  It has the incredible side effect of REALLY WANTING A PS3!!

I already have that. The PSP is working well to hold me over though.  ;)
