With Batman Arkham City coming out yesterday (uk) and the 18th of October (usa) and with me finishing it yesterday i throught it would be cool to open a batman thread so go ahead and say anything you want about batman you can talk about the games comics movies anything batman you can even make reviews of it ill start

Review of Batman Arkham Asylum

Story - The Joker breaks out of arkham and lets Batman capture him and bring him back but as Batman thinks it was too easy and thinks Joker is up to something he is proven Right as Joker takes control of arkham and kills many guards unleashes all of the inmates with the help of Harley Quinn and the inmates being killer choc Scarecrow and more of the villians from batmans past and with the pain of the riddler who makes batman solve all his riddles..its gonna be one big night for the dark knight

Gameplay - just belive me this is one of the best comic book games and it feels like you really are the dark knight as you fight,do puzzles and solve riddles it is really good gameplay

Overall - it is one of the best batman games if not one of the best comic book games made and if you can i would say ether get it along with the sequel Arkham City or if you can find it just get it so Batman Arkham Asylum gets a 9.0

  • I assume everybody else is greatly mourning the loss of Hostess

  • I'm gonna miss those things. I guess if a nuclear holocaust DOES happen, we won't have golden, delicious snack cakes to keep us company now.

    In other news, Arkham City Armored Edition for the Wii U was received favorably by IGN, with one small caveat. The reviewer said that it was at its best when the game was played on the game-pad and avoiding the motion-controls. To be honest, that'd be part of the fun to me. Also, the gamepad displays in HD, so it'd have BETTER resolution than my actual TV.
  • I've been keeping an eye open on these WiiU ports. So far, Arkham City's port is pretty much the same game, with little graphical differences and the stuff added that makes use of the tablet is every bit as gimmicky as you'd guess.

    It got favourable reviews because the core game is still awesome, but the port is largely pointless.

    Except for everyone that's never played it?
  • I heard every port has a poor framerate.

    If you were going to, chances are you'd have done it by now, but yes. Pointless unless you've never played it.
  • And this would be news...how? All ports over all consoles have framerate issues or issues of some kind. Games always, ALWAYS function best on the console they were originally developed for. Why? Because most of the time, ports aren't handled by the original development team, but a different team. Most of the time without caring if they actually take full advantage of the new system it's being ported to.
  • You know what I miss? Batman Beyond. They had such a great following with the show, too. Then they just had to switch over to comics...
  • I miss Justice League. Even for a cartoon, the last episode had me in tears.
  • The Hobbit will play the full length trailer for Man of Steel.
