Needless Things Podcast 62 – Batman: Arkham Knight

NT%2B62%2Bpic.jpg
On
June 23
rd,
2015, Rocksteady’s final Batman game was unleashed upon the world –
Batman:
Arkham Knight
.
After a week of playing, Phantom Troublemaker gathered a group of
Batmaniacs to talk about the game and the history of the franchise.

Phantom
is joined by Needless Things Irregulars Ryan Schweck and
The
Belligerent Monkey
,
as well as newcomers Mike Nelson and Chris “Crispy” Lloyd. The
fellas reminisce about the wonder of
Batman:
Arkham Asylum

actually being a great game, discuss how much the world opened up in
Arkham
City
,
and share differing opinions on the quality of
Arkham
Origins
.

After
a little Arkhamverse history, the crew dives into a discussion of
Arkham
Knight
.
There are minor spoilers, but Phantom provides multiple warnings when
they’re about to happen. Most of the talk is focused on the
gameplay and features rather than plotlines. None of the guys had
finished the game at the time of the recording, so plenty of
mysteries were still in play.

PLUS!
As an extra bonus feature after the show, Crispy and Phantom –
further along than the rest of the crew – discuss certain plot
points and in the outro Phantom shares his guess as to the identity
of the Arkham Knight!

Listen
in as Phantom, Ryan, Jay, Crispy, and Mike talk about one of the most
highly anticipated video games of all time!:

Today’s
musical selection is from friends of the show, Calabrese! Their
newest album,
Lust
for Sacrilege
,
is available from
CalabreseRock.com.
For today’s track we’re going with something a little older (and
more appropriate). From their masterpiece
Born
With A Scorpion’s Touch

– “I Wanna Be A Vigilante”!
