Aparently Arkham Origins has multiplayer:
I am not a fan of multiplayer, but this does look promising. Something about being Batman and taking out other actual people sounds exciting. I might actually be playing online this fall.
I read and interesting blog post this morning:
I this this is a problem that needs to be addressed in the gaming community. When did we become so self-intitled? What makes us think that we are special, or deserve things. This is just one example of gamer over-reaction to tiny things. I don't care about COD, and I never have, but it is important that the people who do care about it don't think that the developers owe them anything. If you really believe that .1 seconds is enough of a difference to ruin the game for you, I have a very simple solution. Do not play the game anymore. You can vote for these kinds of things with your money and with your participation, or lack there of. But death threats? For this? What has happened to us? When did we become so demanding? I think that all of us need to re-evaluate how we should treat the people that make the games that we love so much.
Yesterday my girlfriend and I went thrift shopping and it was an blast. We first went to Pawn America for their Tuesday movie deals: 2 movies for $3!? We got six movies once we left: Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Team America: World Police, Bo-Bo-Bo Bo-bo Bo-bo, Ocean's Thirteen, Indiana Jones Kingdom of the Crystel Skull, and Inyasha. It wasn't our best haul, but it's all movies that we have been looking for. Then we went to Gamestop for their special deal this week on 50% more money for trade-ins. I sold all the games I could, and ended up getting $110 dollars for them all. I put five dollars down on Tales of Xillia, and we got Okami, Tales of Symphonia Dawn of The New World, and THE LAST OF US!!! I have been lusting after The Last of Us for a while now, so I finally broke down yesterday and bought it. My girlfriend has been trying to find Tales Of Symphonia for over a year now, so we both walked away really happy. It was a pretty great day of thrift shopping in the end. And I only spent about $39. Win.
I know that I am late to this, but I have to express my sadness over Cory Monteith's death. I can't say that I was a huge fan of his, but I always loved him on Glee. I still have most of his solo's in my music library, my favorite being "I'll Stand By You." Now that song makes me sad whenever I hear it. I wasn't very up to date on his personal life, I didn't know that he even had a drug problem or that he was dating Lea Michele. My sympaties go out to her and any other friends and family members he had. 31 is far to young to die, and I know that he had a promising career ahead of him. I truly hope that this tragedy inspires others to try to fight their own addiction, or help others with addiction. I am not unfamilar with addiction in my family, so I know the toll it can take. Lets hope that something like this never happens again.
