In what I thought might be a kind of guerrilla marketing technique to drum up some hype for Rocksteady's long-awaited next game... but have since learnt is probably just a way of commemorating the 80th anniversary of Batman as a character, the Epic Game Store is giving away SIX Batman games for free today. Batmans: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Arkham Knight, and Lego Batmans: 1, 2 and 3. Just log into the store and get'em, same as every other giveaway every other week with the EGS. It really puts into perspective just how much money Fortnite must be making for Epic to be able to give away multiple games for straight-up-free every week, huh? Like, man they must be making a lot of money from that game. A. Lot. Of. MONEY. Goodness gracious.
Speaking of the EGS, that neato John Wick strategy game is out October 8th:
I think this is such a cool idea for a John Wick game. You could never replicate a John Wick fight scene in a standard shooter or whatever, and even a Platinum action game might come up short, but this seems like such a clever way of depicting that inimitable John-Wick-ery through the medium of video games. btw John Wick 3 just came out on 4K Blu Ray and you'd better believe I'm getting it, baby.
And in unrelated news, look at this:
Game Pass is absolutely ridiculous. Didn't Bloodstained just come out like a week ago? I don't know how anyone is making money from these services, but I am way into getting a bunch of games for pocket change.
EDIT - Oh and Sony is holding a
Nintendo Direct State of Play on September 24th, which lines up with that Last of Us 2 media event I posted about a couple of days ago, so maybe this is the big one.
