4.0 out of 5 stars Batman Returns Minus Rocksteady With Texture Packs In Tow, 1 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Batman: Arkham Origins is the 3rd entry in the 'Arkham' Series which began with 'Asylum', a stunning recreation of the Batman universe set within the confines of the notorious 'Arkham Asylum', it featured the returning voice talents of Kevin Conway and Mark Hamill (as Batman and the Joker) from the TAS and writer Paul Dini. The story was magnificent, the characterization spot on and the mixture of freeflow combat and stealth grased the nature of Batman himself. The 2nd entry, 'Arkham City' improved on every aspect moving the story into an open-world setting, increasing the cast of villains and heroes and improving on every other aspect from combat to length. Which brings us to 'Arkham Origins' which does little in the way of new while allowing a number of bugs and glitches to slip through the net.

Developed by Warner Bros Montreal the game is half a re-texture exercise and half 'if it ain't broken, don't fix it' mentality. Half of the city is a re-textured version of 'Arkham City' (clearly visible by the fact a bridge separates the original landscape and the new), the gadgets may be renamed - take the Remote Claw, a substitute for the Line Launcher - though are simply re-textured like the character models. The free-flow combat differs from horrendous to perfection depending on the response of the buttons - notably the counter button - with many taking place in small areas the camera struggles with.

Montreal have made a number of small improvements such as the crime scene detective sequences which have the player analyzing evidence to build a interactive video of the event to solve the crime and have implemented a story, which while slow to begin with builds to a enjoyable finale. And the use of lesser known rogues from Batman's gallery is a very welcome addition, with the majority being distinctive and well-designed, its a shame though the 8 Assassins feature so little in the game and the story is saved for Batman's much more iconic rogues.

When it is comes down to it the issue with 'Arkham Origins' is there is nothing new brought to the table, no revolutionary or drastically improved gameplay with everything being inherited from Rocksteady. Its lucky Rocksteady had near perfected the formula for the Batman series before it was shipped off to another developer. If you loved the other entries on the 'Arkham' series you will love this - just don't expect the change brought by 'Arkham City' in the wake of 'Asylum'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second Masterpiece In The Wake Of The Soul Destroying 'The Suburbs', 30 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reflektor (Audio CD)
'Reflektor' is a MASTERPIECE. The 4th album by Canadian indie outfit Arcade Fire - produced by LCD Soundsystem legend James Murphy and regular Markas Dravs, 'Reflektor' is part funky driven 80's electronic beats backed with disco, reggae and Springsteen reminiscent rock and pop and part sweeping melodic sounds of a band exploring sounds previously untapped. Songs like 'Joan Of Arc' and 'Supersymmetry' ending with reprisals of other songs, disco backbeats, muffled conversation and whirring static electronic noise. Lead single 'Reflektor' embellishing the influence producer Jame Murphy has had on the band with an 80's filled electronic funk number which echoes in other tracks such as 'We Exist' and 'Porno'. While the album retains that Arcade Fire sound with tracks 'Flashbulb Eyes' and 'Normal Person', while 'Joan Of Arc' and 'You Already Know' show a clear connection between 'The Suburbs' and 'Funeral'. 'Sypersymmetry' providing a haunting mellow ending to the album with orchestral backing which lingers on with the sound of a band becoming distant from reality.

'Reflektor' is an evolution. The move into territories uncharted by the band. A move from the bland rock and pop sounds which populated 3rd album 'The Suburbs' into a sound which is two parts full and empty. Given the disappointing mess of bland sounds which preceded it, 'Reflektor' is a return to form and matched only by the masterpiece telling of humanities end with 'Neon Bible'.
