Although you'd think that in reality he wouldn't want to be on TV.

As summer gives way to fall and leaves change color and fall to the ground here at TPS we get a little chill down our spine. Not only is it a beautiful time of year here on the East Coast, but it's also time for Halloween and time for new video games. It's literally the best time of the year and THAT's why we get a chill.

Now, if you are a bad guy, you would instead get your chills from hardcore vigilantes like Batman. While we've seen the story of his origin a few times before, we're excited to get to PLAY that origin in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins coming out in a scant week and a half.

If you haven't seen the new TV spot that highlights the brutality and hopelessness of Bruce Wayne's formative years you should give it a gander. You might find that his plight gives YOU a bit of a chill down your spine. Don't look for any gameplay in this particular trailer, but expect more of the fluid melee and stealth this series has been built on.

Don't forget! Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is also coming for the Vita at the same time! It's a whole different experience that takes the same concepts and shifts things to a traditional Metroidvania style with some added panache. We might be more excited for this game than we are for the console version. They both have that late Autumn feel we love so much.
