Get Batman: Arkham Asylum 75% Off

You’d have to have been living under a rock on Mars for the better part of the last year if you haven’t heard about Batman: Arkham Asylum. The game received critical acclaim around the world, with near perfect scores given by just about every major publication out there. Featuring gritty graphics, visceral gameplay, and a slightly disturbing undertone, it was the game that breathed new life into the Batman franchise, reinventing it as something enjoyable by both the children of today and the adults who were around during the caped crusader’s prime.

This weekend, to kick off their newest promotional event, Microsoft is slashing the price of the Windows version of Arkham Asylum to $12.50 when players purchase it through Games on Demand.

It goes without saying that this is a great deal, and that it would be fiscally irresponsible not to take advantage of it if you missed out on the game when it released. However, this opportunity will only be available this weekend, so if you think you need to add some money to that credit card, step to it. Don’t worry if you miss out on this weekend’s savings though, as Microsoft will be drastically reducing the price of a different big-name title every weekend in March, so you’ll have the opportunity to save on other great titles throughout the month, which can only get better from here on out.
