Batman: Arkham Knight & Tales of Zestiria

So for the past week I’ve been playing Batman: Arkham Knight for the
PlayStation 4. Such a great game, I had some troubles putting the controller down. Like yesterday I played for about 15hours straight! Well I took miniature pauses for food and other visits, if ya get my drift. The worst (best) part is that it didn’t feel like I spent such a long time with the game, the day just flew by and I haven’t done gaming in one sitting like this in years! Mostly I’ve just gotten 2-3hours in one sitting.

I did really like the game, but I’m a tad sad that the batmobile takes up a bit too much space. I can’t go into detail on what exactly what I mean, since I would then have to spoil some stuff and I’m NOT going to do that. All in all it was a good game and a good ending to Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy, I’m please that Rocksteady acknowledges the stuff that happened in Arkham Origins even if they didn’t make the game themselves.
I just have some Riddler stuff left (almost all of it) and I’ll see if I will give them ago, probably not. But if would be nice, since there is a surprise… ;)

And in other news Bandai Namco today announced the Collectors Edition for
Tales of Zestiria, it’s more or less the same version as the Japanese CE. A shame that the will bring the ToZ OVA over, but on a DVD. You would think they would put it on a blu-ray for the PS3 and PS4. You’ll get a cloth artwork, steelbook, 4 Chibi Kyun figures, hardcover arbook, selected soundtrack cd and a big old box to put everything in. I’m still thinking about getting this or not, some great stuff, but I would have preferred a figure like Milla or Ludger from Tales of Xillia 1 & 2.

Some retailers will offer some Tales of Cameo costumes! I need them, I must have them! So hopefully my local GameStop will be able to offer these costumes. If you get the game digitally you will get them regardless. I’m not sure if this is true even for the steam version of the game, but I would be surprised if you didn’t get them there too. And speaking of steam, they are going to release Tales of Symphonia HD on steam next year. If a lot of people preorder Tales of Zestiria on steam and they hit a certain mark, those who preordered ToZ will get ToSHD for free. Not bad, not bad.

So what is next for me in line of games? We’ll I’m looking forward to
Onechanbara Z2 Chaos which is coming out the Juli 21 in the US. Guess it will be imported since we still don’t have a date in Europe and I want to be sure to get a physical copy. After that its time for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in September, then in October I have no idea how I’m going to find time to play all the games I want. Dragon Quest Heroes, Tales of Zestiria, Transformers: Devastation. Ugh. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is something I’ll be getting later, since I do not have the time and I’m pretty sure it will sell well either way. There are probably so many more games I’ve missed and for now that is okay, I don’t need to remember them all. That would only be more trouble for me. Hehe.
What did you say? I don’t have to get all the games at once? I can wait? What are you saying dear sir/madam? You crazy. O.O

  1. Brukar också ha svårt för långa (10+ tim) spelsessioner. Men det har jag alltid haft. Tror det kan bero på att rollspel har sina tempoväxlingar. Dvs Stad – Världskarta – Grotta – Boss och sen dras tempot ner, man hamnar i en ny stad och måste “börja om från början”.

    Du missade väl inte att ett nytt Legend of Heroes-spel bortsett från 2nd Chapter är påväg i höst?

    Visst snackade vi om Shenmue 3 och att det inte fanns till PS4:an? De har äntligen lagt till det nu! Blev en backning. Tredje Kickstarten för min del :)

  2. I normala fall brukar jag inte sitta så länge, men då ibland när planeterna är i rätt fas brukar det bli länge. Tappar all form av tid och inget annat existerar för mig. =)

    Jo, jag har sett det. Blir naturligtvis ett köp av dem också. Kommer även Ps3an få lite kärlek igen. Känns som det var längesedan nu.

    Ohh. Fasen att man inte har råd att delta i denna kickstarter. Blev ju Bloodstained för mig förra månaden och sedan har det varit en del andra utgifter. Men nu skulle jag verkligen vilja lägga, fysisk utgåva ftw! Men det är inte slut än, så vi får se vad som sker.
