Batman: Arkham Knight PC Patch Works Miracles, But Is Pulled

Publisher Warner Bros on Wednesday deployed a patch for the

Batman: Arkham Knight shipped on June 23 across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. However, upon release, a mass of reports from players had indicated that the PC edition was in an incomplete state.

That led to a punishing two weeks for the publisher, as fans continued to discover a whole litany of technical problems with the PC build. After apologising and announcing its intention to build a patch to fix the numerous problems, Warner Bros decided to pull the title from Steam. The game has been unavailable on PC since.

Developer Rocksteady recently released a statement saying it was working on remedying the port’s problems, while more significant ongoing work was being done. Posting on Twitter, studio co-founder and director of the Batman: Arkham series, Sefton Hill, said the studio has its “best engineers” helping to fix the issues.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros was accused of having known of Arkham Knight’s PC Problems “for months” prior to release, however these claims–purportedly from internal QA employees–are not proven.

Mad Max Review | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes: “There’s plenty to admire in Avalanche’s open-world adventure and we had a good time in this literal sandbox, and even several shades of dust and a few technical shortcomings (frame-rate drops during sandstorms, some mislabelled button prompts) weren’t enough to ruin our enjoyment. This is a vivid and engaging world, brutal and unflinching in equal measure – just wait until you see what’s on the menu for lunch. It might feel by-the-numbers in some respects, repetitious in others, but it also has plenty of personality. There’s a good game here, and while it might not have the legs to go on indefinitely, it’s a blast while the ride lasts.” —> Read More

Super Mario Maker Review | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes: “Super Mario Maker isn’t our Game of the Year. It’s not the best Mario game. Its impact is far removed from the likes of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy. At first glance, it shows recycled worlds, zero direction. At first glance, it may even come across as a complete lack of innovation.

“But Super Mario Maker is a masterpiece. It’s a tribute and a lesson on 30 years of video game history. It’s a step forward for Nintendo, a humble and necessary move and the best possible first step into a new land. It’s been designed to uncover abilities and stimulate knowledge you had dormant in the back of your mind. It teaches, allows, encourages and entertains with the same ease and joy Mario did with his very first jump.” —> Read More
