I was worried I'd never see daylight again. That's seriously a concern I had while playing Batman: Arkham City over the holidays this year. We all love comics (obviously) and we all love video games, so the amazing combination of Batman and brutality that was Arkham City had a lot of us spending quite a bit of time sitting inside with our game consoles. This week I'm happy to bring good news for those of you looking to expand the Arkham City experience and possibly breathe some fresh air at the same time.
