Arkham Knight: Swatting Firefly

Firefly_04

Garfield Lynns, also known as Firefly, is a pyromaniac who began as a regular, off-the-streets petty criminal since his career as a pyrotechnic expert for movies fell through. Soon however, he quickly went on to start more dangerous crimes, carrying out arson attacks and torching huge parts of Gotham City in the process. However, one day, when Garfield set alight to a chemical factory, it raged out of control, and he was horribly scarred all over his body.When he recovered, he made a special flame-retardant and heat-insulated battlesuit so he could be protected from his blazes. Inspired by real fireflies, Lynns designed this suit to incorporate numerous additions, mostly relating to incendiary weaponry including a military-grade Flamethrower and Jetpack, Napalm Grenade Launchers, and a self-designed Flame Sword for close-combat purposes. Since then, Firefly works as a freelance mercenary and professional arsonist between bouts of incarceration at Blackgate Penitentiary.

Arkham Knight: Armored and Dangerous

batmobile-main

So what really sets Arkham Knight apart from the rest of the Arkham franchise is the Batmobile. I gotta say it is the funnest damn thing I have ever done in a game, also the most frustrating. This is the first line of Batmobile challenges that I am going to be showing but there are so damn many that I will be uploading many more in the coming weeks. I hope you enjoy and if you have been sitting on the fence about whether or not you should go out and buy Arkham Knight, just buy it, trust me… unless of course you’re on PC, in that case, wait for a decent port and buy it on sale.

Arkham Knight: Rooftop Rage!

knightfall628

This was the moment in Arkham Knight when Hard mode hit me in the face repeatedly. As you can tell from my commentary I was more than a little upset about this mission and the crazy ass bugs that kept happening throughout. I always seem to forget that the more upset I get the worse I play and these videos are proof of that fact. Once I finally calmed myself down I had it finished in no time at all, so always remember to just goos fraba and get that shit done!

Arkham Knight: Bank Robbery Blues

2363119-snes_adventuresofbatmanandrobin

So I finally ran into Harvey Two-Face’s thugs last night and it turned into a frustrating nightmare once I went to the second bank. I love the new mechanic they added with the money bar, watching the criminals make off with the money added a sense of urgency that kicked me completely out of my comfort zone. I had been complaining in earlier missions that it was too easy for it being on hard but last night showed me that Rocksteady is not afraid to amp up the difficulty at all. I also remembered the video game I was referring to in part 2, it was The Adventures of Batman and Robin, and was based on the Batman Animated series that was equally as awesome as the game.It’s got me extremely excited for the boss fight with Harvey Two-Face, as everything I have heard has led me to believe it will be a Batmobile style fight, much like it was in one of my favorite childhood games.

Arkham Knight: The Killing Joke!

2690067-joker_shoots_barbara_2CTC-The-Killing-Joke

There’s certain moments in a fan’s life that are simply to amazing to express in any language known to man. I’ve always been a fan of The Batman, ever since watching Jack Nicholson’s representation of The Joker put a morbid smile on anyone using cosmetic products. “Where does he get those wonderful toys”. Now I had read Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s The Killing joke once when I was young, it was handed to me by a friend who was a massive comic book guy, and would always keep me up to date on what was going on in the books. I was blown away by that book at the time but really didn’t get hit with it quite as hard as the second time I read it. Fast forward many years. I had recently quit doing Heroin, and all other related drugs, and was in the midst of some shit that I am never gonna be able to explain. During this time I developed a theory for myself. In short I decided that the person I had been, the piece of shit junkie thief, had to die in order for me to fully escape that person. So that’s what I did. I killed him and buried him in a shallow grave in the desert and am now the charming son of a bitch you all know and love today. Since that time I have reread The Killing Joke and one particular speech, delivered by The Joker, hit me right in the chest. I’ll end this with that particular monologue since it says the feeling better than I ever could. What follows is why The Joker is absolutely the most important fictional character in my life and also why, as you can hear, this scene in Arkham Knight had me squeeling like a child.

“Remembering’s dangerous. I find the past such a worrying, anxious place. “The Past Tense,” I suppose you’d call it. Memory’s so treacherous. One moment you’re lost in a carnival of delights, with poignant childhood aromas, the flashing neon of puberty, all that sentimental candy-floss… the next, it leads you somewhere you don’t want to go. Somewhere dark and cold, filled with the damp ambiguous shapes of things you’d hoped were forgotten. Memories can be vile, repulsive little brutes. Like children I suppose. But can we live without them? Memories are what our reason is based upon. If we can’t face them, we deny reason itself! Although, why not? We aren’t contractually tied down to rationality! There is no sanity clause! So when you find yourself locked onto an unpleasant train of thought, heading for the places in your past where the screaming is unbearable, remember there’s always madness. Madness is the emergency exit… you can just step outside, and close the door on all those dreadful things that happened. You can lock them away… forever.” – The Joker

Harley Quinn’s Story Pack, A.K.A. (Buy our DLC)

I had heard that the preorder bonus on the Playstation 4 for Arkham Knight was going to be Harley Quinn as a playable character in her very own story pack. Needless to say I got incredibly excited and jumped all over that deal in a New York minute, only to have balls of blue once completing it these months later. The whole “Story Pack” took me less than 25 mins to beat from start to finish, and I understand that since I have played all the Arkham games I have a jump on the controls and combat, however less than 25 mins of content sucks. What made it even worse is that, as you can tell from my reactions in this video, I was in love with Harley Quinn’s combat style after the first little brawl. Her Psychosis mode was beautiful and gave the game world such an amazing makeover with her thoughts splayed across every surface that it quite literally made me erect! I just felt so disappointed at the end when I realized what this actually was. A premature grab at my wallet by showing me how awesome the DLCs will be when they become available. I just wish they would have given me a little bit more to maybe show me that the DLC will actually be worth it, instead of just another possible 25 mins of really fun gameplay that only left me wanting more and incredibly pissed off that I would have to pay for it!

The Witcher 3: Caranthir (Death March)

Caranthir is one of the most frustrating bosses in The Witcher 3, in my opinion, because of that damn teleport he does. I was only able to get two hits on him before he would teleport away and sometimes I was only able to get a single hit on him. I also realized on my first two attempts that Quen was going to be my best friend since his spells can be incredibly difficult to dodge at times. I’ll be uploading the glitch I encountered while on Caranthir during my Blood & Broken Bones playthrough within the next couple of days, definitely worth seeing. Check out my channel if you’re interested in seeing more Witcher 3 videos and much more! Remember to like, if you did of course, and subscribe for more videos uploaded daily!
