In video games, as we meet and conquer the challenges posed to us on each level, we receive the tools to face the next challenge. And wouldn’t you know it, life is the same way. If only we could have as much fun conquering our real challenges as we do conquering our imaginary ones.
When Sony Online Entertainment announced that DC Universe Online was going to the way of the free-to-play business model on November 1st many saw it as one last gasp before the title went the way of the failed MMO. At least for now, it looks like the free-to-play gamble has paid off with Sony revealing that more than 120,000 users have signed up for the MMO.
Now, Sony has not mentioned how many new members have opted for either of DC Universe Online‘s two freemium subscriptions, leaving us without an understanding of whether or not this risky move paid off, but for now it seems like it has.
Last night I had every intention of giving DC Universe Online a chance o grab hold of my heart strings, but the download times were CRAZY.

This video is a little spoiler-y, so be warned. Now, I know Arkham City already came out, but I thought I’d give you a quick update: The game is outrageously enormous. I’ve played 10 hours, and I’m only 18% through. More interestingly, Arkham City’s Batman is kind of… angry. I mean, moreso than usual. He’s actually a bit surly. Almost… a Bat-Dick, if you will, and here’s a video of Batman’s most assholish moments from the game to prove it.
