Batman: Arkham City

  1. Batman’s Rogues Gallery Looks Amazing and Ominous in the New Arkham Knight Trailer

    This game will take you all the places you want to go.

    This trailer has an awful lot of Scarecrow for a game literally named after a brand new villain, but Rocksteady seems to have found a way to make him appropriately badass to fit the Arkham series and its new M rating, and there's also some Poison Ivy and Harley, so we're going to allow it.

  2. Batman: Arkham Knight Video Game Details Reveal Oracle’s Expanded Role

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Ready for more Batman? I know I always am. Putting personal preferences aside, Rocksteady is set for another installment of the Arkham franchise with Batman: Arkham Knight and as revealed a few details you might be interested in. For instance, the "Arkham Knight" is not Batman, but another fellow, whose picture is after the jump. Oh, and also Barbara Gordon/Oracle.

  4. Batman: Arkham Origins Teaser Trailer Features Extremely Realistic Fight

    Cautiously Optimistic

    I swear these are just actors in costume actually fighting. I mean, damn! According to the videos description: "Batman: Arkham Origins features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline occurring several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Taking place before the rise of Gotham City's most dangerous villains and assassins, the game showcases a young, raw, unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. As the story unfolds, witness identities being formed and key relationships being forged." All of us Batman fans here at The Mary Sue are still slightly wary of this next installment considering it isn't being made by Rocksteady but remain hopeful. What about you? Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  5. New Arkham Game Announced: Arkham Origins

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Warner Bros. has been quietly marshaling its forces to create the next installment of the Arkham franchise, and its domain name registrations have not gone unnoticed. But today the company officially announced Batman: Arkham Origins. The good news is there's a new game. The bad news is it's a prequel, so it won't be delivering on any of the loose ends left wafting at the end of Arkham City. Also for a moment there I entertained the notion that since it was a prequel, it might actually involve Barbara Gordon when she was Batgirl and not Oracle, but the devs are saying it's a "young Batman" meeting some of his enemies for the first time, so I doubt there will be a lot of Batfamily shenanigans, unfortunately. But with eight assassins descending on Gotham City on Christmas Eve to compete over who can kill Batman first, there's a good chance of say, Lady Shiva, Cheshire, White Canary, or, if they wanted to pull from the Batman Beyond universe, Curare. Either way, Warner Bros. Games Montreal has some big Rocksteady Games shoes to fill. (And the DC Universe really needs some lady hitpersons who aren't Asian ninja-types, sheesh.)

  8. Things We Saw Today: Armored Edition Arkham City Catwoman Costume Is Like A Million Billion Times Better Than Regular

    Things We Saw Today

    Arkham City is getting a port to the oncoming Wii U, and because every console has got to have something to boast about, all the playable characters are getting special "armored" versions of their costumes. The Catwoman one, we can say unequivocally, is about a million billion times better than the default one. As much as we love the game. And kicking ass as Catwoman. (Kotaku)

    The cast of BBC's Doctor Who may be (almost) out by they're not down. Except perhaps Arthur Darvill who may be about to take a tumble in this photo.

  10. Watch Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy Record Voiceovers For Batman: Arkham City [Video]

    Fangasm

    If there's one thing any geek can appreciate, even if they're not a gamer nor a passionate Batman fan, it's watching awesome people do voiceovers for things. Take the aforementioned awesome people -- in this case, Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman, and Mark Hamill, voice of the Joker -- put them in a completely unnatural environment, like a recording booth, and then say "Action" and watch the excellence ensue. Both actors reprised their roles from Batman: The Animated Series for Batman: Arkham City, because they love us and want us to be happy. On another note, Hamill should really follow Conroy's example and do a guest voice on The Venture Bros. next season. Let's please start the Twitter campaign now.

  12. Kevin Conroy Talks About Being The Voice Of Batman

    Interview

    For many superhero fans, Kevin Conroy is THE Batman. Although he's only ever voiced the character, he's held onto the role for over twenty years now and has become synonymous with the caped crusader. At the premiere of the latest Warner Home Video feature, Justice League: Doom, we got a chance to speak with the seasoned actor about his long run with the character, how he sees Batman, and how voice acting for video games like Batman: Arkham City, is a lot harder that it would appear.

  13. Celebrating Christmas In Arkham City, With Batman [VIDEO]

    It is a gift!

    As a thank you to Rocksteady Studios, the creators of Batman: Arkham City, Blue Goggles Films made a Christmas video as cheery as one could expect considering it was filmed in the overrun, super-sized mental asylum. A summary of what you're about to see? "Set on Christmas Eve within the confines of the Arkham City prison, two of the Penguin's dullest lights on the tree, attempt to enjoy the holidays together." What could possibly go wrong? Also, this may be the sweetest Christmas thing I've seen this year.

    There's really nothing to say about this picture of Alfred cleaning Batman's cowl with a toothbrush (while he's wearing it) except that it made both Susana and myself squeal with delight.

  17. Spread The Word: Mark Hamill Would Voice The Joker For The Killing Joke

    Fangasm

    I'm a happy camper when I hear either Kevin Conroy or Mark Hamill's names associated with Batman and the Joker. The two actors have become synonymous to those roles thanks to Bruce Timm's Batman: The Animated Series and subsequent features in which they appear. Most recently, the duo lent their voices to the sequel to the video game Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, but Hamill caused a stir when he tweeted something just a few days ago that led us all to believe that was his last time playing the Joker. Hamill has now ammended his statement to add a few exceptions to his new no-Joker rule - more Arkham and the controversial Alan Moore story, The Killing Joke

  18. If Alfred Was a Playable Character in Arkham City

    Bloody Good Fun

    There's plenty more to Dorkly's depiction of the deep gameplay potential inherent in the Caped Crusader's gentleman's gentleman.  This was just our favorite one, as people who spent far too many minutes pouring over forum threads trying to figure out exactly what hoops we'd have to jump through in order to get the Batman: Animated skins. See the whole comic behind the jump.

  20. One of These Guys Might Be Batman, Maybe, I Think

    Meanwhile...

    Batman: Arkham City came out yesterday to rave reviews, as befits a sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, the first piece of Batman-related media that made this life-long Batman fan actually want to be Batman. But I can't play it until sometime next month because the PC version was delayed. /fistshake
