    Default Batman Arkham City

    I was just scrolling through games on Amazon and then. Boom. Arkham Asylum 2 wtf? So I just Googled it and yeah. It was announced on 12/2009 they're making an Arkham Asylum 2.

    Anyways. Seeing as I'm a fan of Batman and the first Arkham Asylum was one of my favorite games on PS360, I'm interested in seeing how this one goes. Arkham Asylum 2 probably isn't its official name, but yeah.

    Already? Seems really soon, unless they planned to do this anyway... It gives me more reason to finish the first then.

    With how well the game sold and how much critical praise it got, I wasn't surprised at all when they announced the sequel last month. What really gets me excited is that Two-Face is said to be in the game this time around, who for whatever reason was missing in the last game.

    if they ever considered making hush the main villain, i'd buy 10 copies and give it to the homeless


    hush imo is the only villain with the potential to surpass the joker as the ultimate batman foe.

    I thought he was missing because he had escaped prior to events in the game. I know that *spoiler* At the end of the game, Batman gets a call that Two Face is robbing a bank in town and Batman flies off in the batwing from the asylum to confront him So I suppose it could work out that way not to mention all of the inmates who are missing from their cells and are not featured in the game. I know I'd really like more Scarecrow as he was probably one of my favorite characters in the first.

    Agreed. Being the giant Batman nerd I am, I'm totally geeked for this. I really hope it's more of a sandbox type game. I want to be able to drive the Batmobile and scale the buildings of Gotham City. But if not I'm sure I'll love it either way.

    Someone found a secret room on Arkham Asylum detailing the next Batman. The room can't be found with detective mode. Anyways. There's new info that Quincy Sharp bought a portion of Gotham City and closed it off since Arkham Asylum and Blackgate are destroyed/under construction which is why the game is being called Arkham City. So that's probably why we see the psychiatric ward and penitentiary labeled. According to the developers we're not going to be seeing this game until next year.



    Here's a Youtube video showing the room.

    New Arkham City screens. Character models have much better formed faces now. Catwoman, Two Face, and the new and improved Harley Quinn are there among others.

    I bought the special edition of arkham asylum way after it came out and greatly regret not buying it sooner.

    I am really hoping for another special edition. Either way, I am pre-ordering this one for sure.

    I do loves me some Batman and comics in general but the games made for comic book characters seems to always leave me flat. I think the last games based on super heroes that I liked were in the 16 and 32-bit eras. I did play the demo for the first game and it wasn't bad but I never did pick it up.

    Not digging the name for this sequel. Arkham City sounds incredibly dumb. Why not just called it Gotham City? I know, I know...they wanted to establish a connection with the first game but are people really that aloof to not realize this is the sequel?


    I realize this is supposed to be Two-Face but the comic purist nerd in me has to point out that only the left side of his face is horribly scarred, not the entire left side of his body.

    Not digging the Harley Quinn either. This looks like a pic out of Vampire: The Masquerade. Why not give her an all black full body skintight bodysuit and a jester's hat? I didn't much care for the liberties taken on some of the other villains that showed up in the first game like Bane either. Ah well.

    This is a good shot. Batman pretty much looks like he's supposed to and so does Catwoman.

    Kmart has two gaming credits with the purchase of Arkham City. $30 gaming credit and a $10 gaming credit towards Lord of the Rings War in the North.

    I could get the game right now if I wanted to, since it's not locked out the system by street date at work (normally we wouldn't be able to sell a major release until 12:01 AM Tuesday) but I decided against it since I really can't afford to spend the money right now. One of my friends at work already picked it up after figuring it out, but I'll be getting it like everyone else on Tuesday with my credit at Best Buy.
