Last night I decided that I would play Batman: Arkham Asylum as I still want to progress in that game in balance with my Eve game time. Because I love being Batman. Booya.

Last night I got to the Killer Kroc "level". And I have not been so frantic in a game since my days of playing Doom II and getting down in health and ammo and freeing an ambush in the dark room ahead.

I don't want to spoil it for anyone but let's just say that the flight-fight response of adrenaline was pumping through my body and in the game flight was impossible. I was well and truly freaked out by the suspense and I died four times before completing the level (twice when trying to run). I couldn't believe the panic that flowed through me when I knew Kroc was coming but didn't know from where. Intense.

Once I was finally done I had a huge sigh of relief and quit the game for less stressful Wii Super Mario with the wife.


  1. Yoy gotta admit, Arkham Asylum is the Batman game we've been waiting for for years. And there's already a sequel on the way...

    Game was incredible. I too have been obsessed with batman since I was a kid. Only comic character i've ever really connected with for some reason.

    Yes, the Kroc fight is great. Scarecrow, however, is my fav by far in the game.
