Batman PC Game Glitch Catches Pirate
One dimwitted pirate has been caught red handed with an illegal copy of Batman Arkham Asylum for PC after posting reports of game glitches to the Eidos forum.
User Cheshirec_the_cat wrote: “I’ve got a problem when it’s time to use Batman’s glide in the game. When I hold “,” like it’s said to jump from one platform to another, Batman tries to open his wings again and again instead of gliding. So he fels down in a poisoning gas. If somebody could tel me, what should I do there.”
Whoops. Batman Arkham Asylum for PC was not released with its fellow Xbox 360 and PS3 versions in order to do more work for the PhysX graphics. It’s scheduled release is next week on September 15. After another user reminded Cheshirec_the_cat that the PC version wasn’t yet available, administrator Keir took the time to explain: “The problem you have encountered is a hook in the copy protection, to catch out people who try and download cracked versions of the game for free,” he wrote. “It’s not a bug in the game’s code, it’s a bug in your moral code.”
Batman won’t just fall into gas when you pick up your legitimate PC version next week.
