October 18 is Batman Day
At least, that seems to be what DC Entertainment may be framing 10/18 up to be. While Batman: Year One is available now on iTunes and Amazon on-demand, the physical release of the DVD/Blu-Ray is 10/18. Same day as Batman: Arkham City for the PS3 and Xbox 360, which is the followup to one of (if not the) best superhero games of all time. Apparently Game Informer, the magazine belonging to GameStop, is pretty high on the game.
Let's just assume that, while DC Universe Online's Free-to-Play model hasn't launched yet, it may happen on 10/18 as well. After all, DCUO features Batman pretty prominently. You know. Because he's Batman.
I also wouldn't be surprised if we got a new Dark Knight Rises trailer.
So, I encourage you, celebrate Batman Day with someone you love. Or, if you want to go the extra mile, celebrate it while desiring vengeance for someone you love who was wronged while completely ignoring the possible physical and psychological ramifications that show up when you dedicate your life to terrifying criminals.
As for myself, I plan on playing Arkham City while propping my feet up on a Batman ottoman. While wearing one of these.
