“You’ll forgive me if I don’t stay around to watch. I just can’t cope with the freaky stuff.”

Coming off the 3rd, mediocre installment (if you take it as expanded game play to Arkham City and not a new game, it’s not that bad), it’s with much delight to see franchise back in the hands of Rock Steady Studios; the makers of first two titles in the critically acclaimed series.
