The Batman Arkham franchise is widely regarded as one of the greatest in the history of superhero video games. From Arkham Asylum to Arkham Knight, the games often received critical acclaim for almost every aspect. As good as the graphics, gameplay, and story were, the main attraction would have been the gangsters gallery.
Batman has many iconic villains and is considered by many to be the best collection of bad guys any comic book hero has ever faced. The games featured eminent personalities and told their stories in an interesting way. Some of these villains were different from the rest.
1. Two faces
“Like stepping into a smoky arcade in the late ’80s. Many Faces is a retro experience that connects players to an era where game-play was king and finger dexterity reigned.”
“Many faces are like that good old Folgers coffee you remember your parents drinking every morning. Just the smell of it takes you back to a simpler time before coffee became a novelty item. It’s simple and enjoyable The way a good cup of coffee and video games should be.”
Many Faces is a classic, retro arcade shooter from the 90s. Blast your way through randomly generated levels to face the many Face King! While you were sleeping on your comfortable rock, he kidnapped you to attach you to the face! Now he has to pay! And you still need your beauty sleep!
2. The Penguin
I have to admit that Tamil filmmakers are developing so much and making good films. Penguin is one of the best thriller movies I’ve seen in the past few months, and surprisingly you can’t feel the language barrier as the story is so gripping and connecting that you might forget what language they speak. The story has just come and gone.
The background music here goes very well with the star thriller. Everything be it the acting (especially the lead role by Kriti Suresh), story and visuals, all were so good that one should watch it.
The only thing bothered me was the last 15 minutes, the climax, the motive of all the events was so stupid and out of date because the same partisan behavior between siblings by parents in the 80’s 90’s like a drama that turned the other into a devil And it made him so cruel to take revenge.
Not to give spoilers here, in short, the story is about a pregnant woman who fights to find her kidnapped son and goes through all the troubles and brings about some thrilling and psychotic events. Everything is a good film which should be appreciated ignoring the climax fact.
3. Poison Ivy
While it’s not clear when this specifically happens in the Arkhamverse timeline, elements of the most recent trailer appear to be Kill the Justice League taking place shortly after the events of Arkham Knight, with the Scarecrow from the Arkham Trilogy finale.
The Gauntlet of Justice is appearing in the finals of the League. Hall of Justice Batman also appears in the trailer for Kill the Justice League, as a statue dedicated to him in the Hall of Justice, with his costume of Arkham Knight helping to further clarify the state of the game on the Arkham timeline.
This is important, as it appears that Poison Ivy may have a role in the upcoming Suicide Squad title as well, even if Arkham Knight perishes as a result of absorbing the fear venom spread across Gotham.
Poison Ivy doesn’t appear directly in the new Fandom trailer released over the weekend, but there is a scene where a sentient plant traps the main characters of Kill the Justice League a plant that closely resembles the killer creatures in Ivy’s arsenal.
It is possible that it could be another nature-based hero or villain, such as Floronic Man or Swamp Thing, but the plant is similar to Ivy’s classic Plant Monsters, pointing to the possibility that she may have survived the events. Arkham Knight at last.
This could be a welcome revelation, as Ivy is one of the best characters in Batman’s rogue gallery. Should he return, Kill the Justice League could also explore a major focus for DC’s recent comics as well as the ongoing Harley Quinn animated series: Harley Quinn’s Poison Ivy.
4. death Punch
During the return of Five Finger Death Punch at Wembley in late January, frontman Evan Moody announced that he would be titled Downloads the next time we see him. Was it arrogance? Madness? Or just a sense of the constant momentum of your own band and the inevitable rise to the top? By numbers, the Las Vegas Sluggers are currently the world’s third largest hard rock band in terms of total consumption, with only Metallica and AC/DC achieving more combined sales and streams. Let it sink in for a while.
They have reached this point by choosing a game plan and sticking to it. They are not the heaviest band ever. They aren’t the most technical, the most experimental, or the most creative.
But they are absolutely excellent at being a five finger death punch. That means a range of live shows and albums that have been solidly effective without actually hitting those pinnacles of extraordinary perfection that Metallica or AC/DC have at their best.
5. The riddle
Academy: The First Riddle is a suspenseful adventure game from Pine Studios that takes players to an elite boarding school dealing with the disappearance of a history professor. Players take on the role of Sam, a new student at the academy.
During the game, players will attend classes, read their textbooks for homework, meet new friends, learn about the Arbor and its history, and solve over 200 different puzzles and riddles in search of answers and highest scores.
Despite the Academy’s sheer splendor and prestige, the dark secrets seem to have faded out of sight, and it is up to the player and their new friends to bring them to the light.
As players walk through the halls, they can interact with sculptures, paintings, and other artifacts to learn more about the academy’s surroundings and uncover its secrets.
6. From ra al Ghul
Ra’s al Ghul doesn’t seem to have much use for Forever Evil. As always, the friend has a plan and is not concerned with the motives or actions of others. This issue serves as a nice little background on the character and brings us up to the current status quo, which is good.
It doesn’t require reading at all, and some of the information is presented awkwardly, but it’s still a great time and a good looking comic. There are definitely worse Villain Month titles.
7. Mr. Freeze
There are two types of boss fights. Good Variety challenges you to use all the skills you’ve learned up to that point, pumping up the challenge and drama for a one-of-a-kind ultimate test. The crap kind of just knocks some jerks down with a million hit points and goes and grabs a cup of tea while it waits for you to take it out.
Mr Freeze is arguably the pinnacle of the ‘good’ kind. It’s a moment of being pure Batman who transcends everything else in the already wonderful Arkham series, all while sticking to his own rules.
It’s a tense version of cat and mouse mixed with high explosives and bat-gadgets, which is not only beautifully satisfying, but perfectly suited to Batman’s strength as a fighter.
In a series of wonderful moments, from those scarecrow hallucinations to never wielding the bloody Batmobile ever again, this fight really comes across as Arkham at its best.
8. Harley Quinn
While it follows 2016’s Suicide Squad with Harley Quinn, you wouldn’t call it a sequel; It’s very different to date and features none other than Harley herself. In fact, the film it most closely resembles is Deadpool, with its R-rated antihero, fourth-wall demolisher, and irreverent tone that takes its cues from the (sub)title character.
As Ryan Reynolds did in that film, star Margot Robbie also produces, and her affection for the character is evident. Robbie is once again a chaotic delight as the psychopath turned punk crime queen, formerly known as Harleen Quinzel, and has shepherded a film worthy of Harley’s eccentric sensibilities on screen.
Birds of Prey is in theaters now with what is expected to be a very successful opening weekend at the box office. You can read on for our full review to get an idea of what to expect, and be sure to also check out our feature on the after-credits scene and see if it has a Suicide Squad connection or No.
Birds of Prey or, more formally: Birds of Prey and The Fantabulus Emancipation of One Harley Quinn had a lot to do against it by jumping. For years, it seemed locked in its own special development hell, after its titular character, Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), got off to a poor start with the critical and box office flop Suicide Squad.
And with movies like Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Shazam providing an entirely different energy that seemed completely disconnected from everything that had happened in Justice League and the DCEU before, fans have been wondering if the DCEU is the only one. There was room for Harley Quinn in this new era.
The series is becoming very episodic, with each issue having a different mission that is performed by our peculiar heroes. That’s not a bad thing, but it does mean that the line between issues seems a little shaky, at least for now.
However, the ending of the issue adds suspense and drama to the plot, and we’ll likely see what Hero discovers that becomes a more important part of the series down the road. And the hint about what’s next is definitely going to keep me reading.
The fight is a blast. The skill tree is strong. The rest is pale. I’m enjoying the game, but it feels like the environment is cookie-cutter stuff. For me, one of the draws of other games like Diablo and the Van Helsing series is the loot. Always striving for that next legendary weapon with great graphics/animation… For Chaosbane, it just isn’t.
At least not now, anyway. I’m on chapter 3 of the main story. By now, in my opinion, I should have some great looking gear. In Chaosbane, all the equipment for your character looks the same. They are different per class, but each class gear looks very similar.
Now, to fight back. It’s great! It has a great flow and the play style of each character is very unique. The monsters you face are diverse. Each chapter has its own gang of beasts, including cannon fodder, beefy mid-tiers, and champions.
Depending on the class you play in, you’ll need to find your groove to do well in combat. Boss fights are also really fun. They have massive hitpoints and powerful special attacks, just like a boss should. His character designs and animations are great.
I enjoy boss fights. After defeating the first boss, you unlock Boss Rush, which allows you to fight bosses you’ve defeated. Of course, you have a variety of skills to choose from. I like how chaosbane handles the skill.
I’m not sure if pen and paper plays Warhammer the same way because I haven’t played it. I know, I want Anyway, you have a pool of skill points and each skill costs a certain amount of those points. You gain more skills and upgraded versions of those skills as you level up.
There are tons of skills among the different ways to get them- leveling up, donating to the Collectors Guild, spending favors on God’s Trees… you’ll definitely have fun with all the skills. The graphics are really good, although as I mentioned earlier, the environments are repetitive. Skill animations are unique and impressive.
I would put the graphic style between Diablo 3 and Grim Dawn. The voice acting is sometimes serious. It’s tolerable, but barely. My main character, the elf archer, sounds like Mary Poppins. The other characters’ voices sound like they’re trying too hard.
There are several DLC available in addition to the Tomb Kings expansion, just game boosts and minimal cosmetic upgrades. I don’t think they are necessary and are cash grab attempts. You can play the game without these boosts. My final verdict is 3 stars, or 6.5 out of 10. War and skill trees are the saving grace for this game.
In its current state, I think the $50 USD price tag is a bit high. I found this on sale at a deep discount and I think I got a really good deal. If you like other ARPGs like Diablo 3, Grim Dawn and Van Helsing, and are able to get Kaiosbane on sale, you will enjoy playing this game. You just need to watch the repetitive environments and raucous voice acting.
