Batman: Arkham City Trailer

Keeping on with the Batman theme, considering he is one of my favorite comic book characters, I was very pleased with the Batman: Arkham Asylum game that debuted in 2009 from WB Games and Rocksteady Studios. This new trailer for its sequel, Arkham City, has me foaming at the mouth, chomping at the bit as it were to get a chance to play this title. October seems so far away! I’m sure that the world’s most respected Batmantologist, Chris Sims, might disagree with me but the use of “This Ain’t No Place For A Hero” by the Heavy, in my opinion really works for this trailer.

The part where he hurtles between the two building before using his batgrapple to snag a rooftop…it gives me goosebumps.

  1. I totally agree with you that it seems like October is awefully far away. This will likely be one of two games I fork out full price cash for so that I can play the heck out of it. Loved the first and the game play of this one looks rock solid.

  2. I’ll be honest in that Catwoman is not my favorite femme fatale, I wish they would have gone with Talia or something…though that perhaps would not have made much sense for the game.

    I am excited to see Two-Face in there though, I wonder if they’ll throw us fans a bone and put the Creeper in there? :)
