Alex Martin: Every other Wednesday I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, songs about world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Searching for random terms on Spotify is a great way to discover new music and rediscover old classics.
Batman: Arkham Asylum, The Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever, is one of the smallest sandbox games around. It's set on a small, tunnel-crossed island that is dwarfed by the city surrounding it. Yet every room and corridor presents more challenges and options than a street in Liberty City. It also presents an opportunity for 29 minutes of rock and roll, metal, and two-tone. Enjoy!
