Happy Valentine's Day! Remember to make a visit to a certain psychopath in the basement of a courthouse within Arkham City today!
Ryan Johnson at GoozerNation has enjoyed playing Batman: Arkham City. There is a particular achievement/trophy requiring you to talk to Calendar Man on specific holidays each year. If you catch him on those days, he has a special message for you. You get the Achievement and a subtle denouement to his time in Arkham City if you visit him on every holiday.
There is one each month, this month's being Valentine's Day. You may already be cutting in on your romantic interlude with your significant other to be a day-one Twisted Metal player, but don't forget to stop by and visit Julian Day today for another twisted tale from his history. Of course, you could always take your console offline, change the date manually, and alrelady have this Achievement before the game has even been out a year, but what's the fun in that?
If you want to do this legitimately like Ryan, go ahead and follow GoozerNation on Twitter. He'll have articles coming out on each holiday from now until the New Year to help you remember. And the GN Twitter account will pop up with each day as they arrive (as well as many other awesome stories every day!) We're on Facebook as well. As Batman: Arkham City gets older, and more people finish playing, it will be harder to remember this Achievement, and you're out a year if you miss one! Keep up with us and you won't miss a beat.
Please note: the holidays that stay on their numerical equivelant should be easy, but other holidays, such as Thanksgiving, that float depending on the day of the week, may need tweaking. GN will set the articles to come out on the first possible day (numerical or by the week) to do their best to not miss a day, as the in-game calendar has specific numbered days circled that may not coincide with the holiday once it arrives (after all, the game came out before Thanksgiving last year).
Plus, Ryan will make it a point to find a new interesting version of Calendar Man for each month's reminder...he's gone through some interesting costume changes. Good luck, and enjoy the twisted tales!
