Blimey. In a sentence, it's extremely fluid and deep.

In a paragraph, when you're thrown into a fight you can chain together hits with ease, if your use of the counter button is well-timed. As you come up against more types of mook you get access to more moves to add to the mix, and your gadgets can be used to stun people too. Then there's the option not to fight at all! You can instead go for stealth and take down enemies in a more subtle, but no less brilliant, fashion. The possibilities are many for Batman alone.

You're slowly but surely selling it to me, Zero! Is it simple enough for my treacly (is that even a word? My spellchecker seems to think so) brain to be able to process?

Sir, if I can get to enjoy it, I fully expect that you could, too. The visual cues give enough warning for you to change tactics successfully (admittedly, I've only played through on Easy up to press Embarrassed ).

No shame in that! Sometimes unnecessary challenge strangles the fun. I wonder if there's an incentive to tackle the higher difficulties? That's a PS3 trophy favourite: 'Beat X game on X difficulty' ( Evil or Very Mad ).

Anyhoo, I'm still not playing anything Wii U-related. Hoping to change that at the weekend, though.

Just a love of the game I'm afraid. Even the PS3 didn't give difficulty trophies for it. You do get a new game plus which ramps up the challenge nicely!

I like dive bombing into a group of enemies & setting off the stun detonation then drop a smoke pellet to make them punch each other by accident. Smile

I like glide kicking from miles away and seeing how things pan out from there! As Matthew Castle said in his review, the greatest joy in the game is simply being Batman.

...

Reluctantly I've swapped the Arkham City disc for the Darksiders II one. Having only played ten minutes or so, it seems deliciously self-important but fun.

I keep being pulled away from my Wii U - I'm too addicted to Paper Mario on my 3DS. Just passed 45 hours on it. Still nowhere near finished, with at least 2 worlds left.

Good grief! Is there some sort of postgame content/sidequest I don't know about?

Yes, that's impressive. I never got that sort of playtime out of it.

Very strange, didn't most reviews say PM:SS could be finished over a weekend?

Guess I'm slow.
I am trying to open all the 80 doors though.

I'm back on Xenoblade after deciding to transfer my save from my old creaking wii to wii U, for a minute I thought I had lost 30 hours worth of game play but what I hadn't realised was that I had obviously copied the save data to the SD card a while ago Duh! (more than a year ago in fact) so I all I had to do was delete the copy on the SD card & then just copy a more recent save from the wii to SD.

& BINGO! I'm back on my adventure. Very Happy

Quite a lot actually. I have Assassin's Creed and Darksiders on the side for now. I am occasionally playing Mario and Mass Effect but the majority of my time is going into Tekken or Ninja Gaiden.

The Cave. A game with a really dark sense of humour.
Only completed the Knight's quest so far, but I'm loving what I see, and although I rage at the lack of Off TV play, actually I'm finding the (admittedly limited) gamepad functionality very useful.

I have Kirby's Epic Yarn! Nicely tactile feel to it, just like there ought to be. Can't get the sodding car thing to happen half the time though.

Finally having a permanantly plugged in nintendo console lying around means I've finally got around to starting The Last Story, I like the characters and the gameplay is fun enough but the battle system doesn't seem very challenging. Still seems to be unfolding though so I'll have to see.

Play Pandora's Tower. I like that the best of the three. It stands out most. Its definitely more of a challenge.

Thought I would start Skyward Sword again and give up at the second trial again

I'm onto the last cell of Nano assault neo, it really is a great twin stick shooter.

KEY is so adorable! Really got into this now. My favourite part is throwing the patches on the world map and watching it transform!

Returned to Trine 2 following the patch, it really is a gorgeous looking game.
