Now I can either start getting to bed early or playing something else ! =)


Was not Batman terrible annoying to beat with 100% completion? I heard it is quite a chore.

p.s. Last game i finished was Witcher 3 a few months ago, then i started in a new job and since then iエm trying to finish Divinity 2... need more holidays :-(

Totally is. Even more in this episode I felt. Arkham Asylum is still my favorite out of the three because of the more intimate setting, the much more pronounced Metroidvania inspiration, and the fact the Riddler riddles were varied and not very annoying, while at the same time being a bit challenging.

In City there were like 200 trophies, the "riddles" ( the best part imho, which is scanning the environnement to find a reference to the Batman universe, based on a riddle, like "Its far from PURRFECT, but she calls it home". The answer will be finding Catwoman's home and taking a picture of it ) were challenging but still visible. The trophies though were a real grind : they literally covered the map and you'd need all tech to be able to get them. Fortunately they were still easy to spot.

In Origins... Let's forget about Origins shall we? It was just a lesser City. Nothing new, a complete grind with a bad story and bad storytelling, they even succeeded in messing up the combat system while not adding anything relevant to it.

And Knight, at last : 243 trophies/riddles/etc before you could summon the Riddler. Riddles are on the verge of pixel hunting, small things hidden in an otherwise ultra detailled environnement ; trophies are somehow hard to spot, there are now races, batmobiles challenges... Yeah it's kind of a chore. Even unlocking all the locations on the map is slightly more annoying.
Not to mention that in order to reach 100% you also have to complete ALL secondary missions, and there are, like, MANY, with varying degrees of frustrations and difficulty. Frak you, you tank mayhem missions. I had to go back to the goold ol' mouse to be reactive and accurate enough to beat them.

Knight really has a great story and storytelling though.

When you get to the "regular" ending, the game starts a kind of counter which only progress each time your reach 100% in a secondary mission. When everything is at 100, you can summon the real, final ending. So ... Either get ready for a looong session, or summon your dear friend Youtube :p

Huh, question for those who saw the Martian.
Are there any references to someone loosing their father in the movie ?

I was planning to watch it with my buddy, but he just lost his father to the floodings in France, so, yeah, you know, I think it would be a bad idea to try and cheer him up with a movie that could even remotely hint at that drama.

You are incredibly considerate...I don't know whether there are any references to a father though. Haven't seen it yet.
But as someone that has lost his father earlier this year...even the smallest details will remind him of that event. It's something...that I'd say changes you.
In any case...I thank you already for him to be so foreseeing. You're a good man.
Hopefully someone else will be able to give you a better answer.

Hey Dr Koin. I saw the film the other day. I think you're pretty safe in that regard. It is a real rollercoaster of emotions, but I struggle to remember anything about a parent or guardian passing in the book and film.

P.s. hope everyone had a good weekend. I'm still in London after watching the NFL here.

Thanks for the kind words. As this is the story of a man isolated on Mars, one may fear the character will come back to Earth only to learn of his relatives' passing - it happens in quite a few SciFi movies I won't name in order to avoid spoilers !

It's been awhile since I did absolutely "nothing" on a weekend. Dull pain aside, it was so worth it.

Since you were the one who convinced me to play TSW, the blame rests on you.

Great post, thanks.

It's really sad when you read stuff about Ubisoft and people almost never differentiate between the people who work for the company and their personal opinion about the games or even only some very top-level management decisions. Many people sadly fail to see that probably 99% of all people working at Ubisoft just want to create the best games possible and that criticizing the studio in the way it's often done on the internet must really hurt them. It became really "en vogue" in the past few years to just literally bash everything Ubisoft, on a level even Activision never experienced. It must be really a nice breath of fresh air for you to actually see people on the internet to appreciate the stuff for and the company you work in for sure... smile
