BATMAN: ARKHAM UNHINGED by Dave Wilkins
So my friend just finished his Arkham City painting in his bedroom…
Pay Your Respects.
"Pay Your Respects" - Batman: Arkham City OST
Arkham City’s original score was award winning, and one of my favourite soundtracks in any game or film. Frustratingly, it was never released in full. There was a terrible album of songs “inspired” by the game available to buy on iTunes (you also got it free with the collectors edition) but the actual in-game soundtrack remains unreleased. If you buy the delux edition of that album on iTunes, you get a few tracks from the game’s actual score but this track is not included.
VERY MINOR SPOILER:
This song, ripped from the game itself and uploaded by a fan, plays when Batman discovers the alley where his parents died. The player can opt to kneel by the scene, “paying their respect” at which point this song plays. It’s one of my favourite moments in the whole game.
Joker: “I nearly had a cure; it was so close and then it was take from me.”
Batman: “So we both die. I’m fine with that.”
Joker: “Are you? Imagine, sucking down that last breath, knowing Gotham is doing the same.”
Batman: “What are you talking about?”
There’s PLENTY wrong with me…
