Batman: Arkham City, the long-awaited sequel to Arkham Asylum, finally got its release yesterday, October 18; as a result, don’t be surprised if all your gamer friends disappear off the face of the Earth for a while while they play through this game. While it may be too early to make this call, it’s reasonable to say that it was the most anticipated release of 2011, and if it’s anything like its predecessor, we doubt that fans will be disappointed. So, while you take a break from saving Gotham City, check out or roundup of all things Arkham City.

- Sadly, some gamers have reported missing DLC redemption codes in their copies of the game. Then again, far too often games are released with major glitches, so if this is the worst we have to worry about, well, we’ll be ok. [G4TV]
- Gamers are a dedicated bunch, and thus we already have some tips for those who want the experience of fighting through the bad guys to go a little more smoothly. [IGN]
