E3 ViDiary: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate on the PS Vita - Worth the hype?
In the next of our ViDiaries, U.S. Managing Editor at PSU Kyle Prahl discusses with us a game that has been on the minds of many PS Vita gamers and Batman fans: Is Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate going to do the series any good? With the Batman films and video games achieving substantial success over the years and consistently raising the bar in terms of gameplay and visuals, Batman's first debut on the PS Vita has a lot to live up to.
To sum up the ViDiary (below) and answer the question posed on the headline, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is certainly worth the hype, being "one of the best looking games on the PS Vita" and "on par with Batman: Arkham Asylum or Arkham City". The game's combat and controls, in a unique 2.5-dimensions that strips the game down to its bare essence, are both top-notch and full of promise.
