Holy Batman game, Batman. Arkham City lit up the review charts while old franchises received new updates, and gamers were extremely charitable over an amazing weekend. Here at the Night, Ethan confronts an unspoken question about our brethren, The Horrible Show can’t stop talking about marathons, and Brandon introduces us to the greatest gamer in his household.
