Wait...that's it?

Wait…that’s it?

Along with Derek, I also played Batman: Arkham Knight and for the most part I really enjoyed it. Loved the new additions to the game, it looks fantastic, and it’s written very well.

Three DC Finales, and One gets it right

DC Entertainment is a Division of Time Warner.

Its been a busy year for DC Comics, with four TV series going on around the same time.
