The last few days of May… Where is 2017 going?
I hope everyone has a lovely Memorial Day this week! Amid video games and comic books, please enjoy some time with your family and good friends.
This summer, there is a new direct-to-video animated Batman movie slated to be released.
I grew up watching the animated Batman series due to my uncle having taped the majority of the episodes on VHS tapes. When I wasn’t bothering said uncle to play Ocarina of Time or Super Mario RPG, I was probably wearing out the VHS tapes in order to watch Batman and Robin.
Aside from the fact that it’s Batman, this movie also brings Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester back as the voices of Batman and Nightwing, and I’m so excited! They’ve done some of the best work as their voices, in my opinion. Melissa Rauch, from The Big Bang Theory, will be Harley Quinn and, while she’s obviously not the original voice actress, I don’t think she sounds too bad as the character.
Seeing the animated series again not only brings about a wave of nostalgia, but it also reminds me of the Batman video games out there. Rachel has played Arkham Asylum, but our XBox decided to call it quits before I could get a chance to do so. I have also yet to play Batman: The Telltale Series that is chilling on my Steam account. I definitely need to check out that game soon!
Are you interested in the Batman movies? Who out there remembers VHS tapes?
