I'm going to listen to this even though I have yet to finish either one of the two previous games. I'll forget the details anyway - one of the many benefits of Alzheimer's.

Making lemonade...Alzheimer's lemonade.

Awesome, can't wait to listen to this PM.

@Brent That sounds an awful lot like the title of a future Axe Factor. ;)

Cat women is a big part of Batman: Blackgate on the vita/3DS so I guess thats why she been left out of origins

*saves for after I complete Origins*

Say, any chance for a Beyond: Two Souls Postmortem?

I finished that recently and would love to hear what you guys thought of the story, game design and so on.

I don't tend to drink the Alzheimer's lemonade like Uncle Dude, but like him I haven't played the last two Batman games either. I still love listening to the postmortems though, it helps me decide whether to buy the game.
