COMMISSIONER GORDON: ‘Batman?’

BATMAN: ‘Read it to me Commissioner, this might be important’

C. GORDON: ‘Riddle me this Batman – What can everyone listen to yet no one does? On what do people laugh constantly despite what they say not being amusing? What lasts 25 minutes but seems to last forever?

BATMAN: Oh no… Commissioner, inform the Mayor… THE RIDDLER INTENDS TO STEAL THE 7th 101 VIDEO GAMES MADE MY LIFE SLIGHTLY BETTER PODCAST!’

C. GORDON: *GASP*

BATMAN: Robin, TO THE BATMOBILE!

Yes, after mentioning Batman in practically every podcast they’ve done, Lew and Ian finally devote an entire episode to the Dark Knight, in particular Batman: Arkham Asylum.

 

'I know I shouldn't say this, but you're my favourite enemy'.

 

Though Lewis and Ian being Lewis and Ian they couldn’t help but ramble, so you also get with this podcast discussions about football games, superhero games in general, the new Spider-Man game, Ian’s idea for a Judge Dredd game and the usual homoerotic undertones.

As the Riddler alludes to above, it’s a long one, nearly 25 minutes. Though Lewis and Ian make no apologies – it’s Batman. It needs to be talked about…

You'd think the henchmen would have learned to look up when looking for Batman.

    Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes. I could’ve probably spent the past 6 months or so writing about how great this game is. Of course I wouldn’t have done so with an english accent and so wouldn’t have been as authoritative as your efforts. And a mention of the Ocean game definitely scores extra points in my books.

    Would be nice to hear a little more about the issue of subjectivity in games – I’ve had some ripper arguments with my partner in crime over at Piranha Poodles over the years.

    Nice job lads.
