KVR Gaming Update 88: The Sick Break

Hello there!

In this post, we'll explain what's happening this week in terms of reviews, lay out my plan for the Cyberbullying articles, and take a look at the big game of the month, Batman Arkham Knight.

Reviews: Straight of the bat, no high priority games will be reviewed this week. Instead, I'll take the opportunity to push out a Retro Game Review I've had lying around for quite some time.

The reason for this is two-fold: One, I'm a bit sick and have work/studying to do outside of the blog, so I don't have the energy to finish the planned review in this short of a time-span. Two, the game is way too long in any case. I'm nowhere near finishing the game in question, so a major review won't be posted this week.

Cyberbullying: Those who frequently visit the site may have read my short weekly articles on the effects of Cyberbullying and how to deal with it.

My plan for the series is to have the current format go on for about 1-3 months, after which the series will come to an end, either with a concluding article or without one. The site will still keep raising awareness to Cyberbullying, make no mistake, but the article series will just end.

After the series ends, KVR Gaming will probably shift towards other, articles about gaming, censorship and parental guidance in general. Please note that this is still in planning, and may change once we reach our deadline. There's a lot to talk about once this series ends, so we'll see where we go from there.

Batman Arkham Knight: Pretty much the only high priority game coming out this month (or any time soon for that matter), Arkham Knight concludes the epic Arkham game saga from Rocksteady games featuring the eponymous Dark Knight.

The game will be far more open than its predecessors, featuring Batman's, ahem, Batmobile, as a deployable vehicle player are able to summon during the course of the game. Batman's trademark combat also makes a return, with some revisions to make for more compelling fight scenes.

Batman Arkham Knight will also feature an M-rating for the first time in the series' history, due to a progressively darker tone than the last two, which were already pushing the T-rating for all its worth. Mentions of torture can be found in the ESRB summary, as well as mentions of bloody violence and suggestive themes.

KVR Gaming will do a featured Content Guide on the game once it's released, within an average time-span of 2 weeks depending on the game's length. 

Outro: That's it, thanks for reading. I'll see you guys again Wednesday with another review. Stay safe, and happy gaming.
