Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, two of the best superhero games of all time, are to be sold in a bundle that contains all the DLC for both games. The bundle will be available from September 23rd, giving time for those haven't played the series yet to get a good appreciation of the quality before the release of Arkham Origins a little over a month from now (October 25th). It's clearly an attempt by WB to milk the sales as much as possible, along with creating hype, but as they're a business, it would be daft to look down on them for that. In the bundle you'll get the GOTY Arkham Asylum with 3D capabilities and all four downloadable challenge maps: Scarecrow's Nightmare, Totally Insane, Crime Alley, and Nocturnal Hunter. Some of these are free to download anyway, but it's nice to get them all in one. More impressively though is the GOTY Arkham City that's included, as it has the Catwoman, Nightwing, and Robin packs, allowing full exploration of the challenge modes. Alongside this you get all 12 downloadable skins for the characters: Year One Batman, The Dark Knight Returns Batman, Earth One Batman, Sinestro Corps Batman, 1970s' Batman, Batman Beyond Batman, the Animated versions of all four playable characters, Red Robin, and Long Halloween Catwoman. Oh, and you get a challenge map bundle. In short, if you don't already own these games (and if that's the case, why the Hell not?), you should buy this as soon as possible. It will be available for both PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 23rd for around £30, though prices will inevitably vary depending where you get it from.
