Batman - Arkham Asylum

http://gameinformer.com/News/Story/2...1226.23309.htm

So it looks like while EA has the rights to the movie license, Eidos can make games based on the comic so it has nothing to do with The Dark Knight.

Screenshots - http://kotaku.com/5037545/batman-ark...um-in-pictures



This looks bad ass.

Story by Paul Dini, art by Wildstorm: It was a must-buy before even looking at the screenshots.

Wow. That looks nice. Let's just hope it doesn't suffer the, "DC GAMES MUST SUCK BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY" curse...

I looked through the recent edition of GI with Batman AA on the cover. The screenshots do look very cool. Oddly enough, a few shots of the Joker in there slightly resemble a slimmer, taller Jack Nicholson Joker. Something with the grin and face shape, I reckon.

Could this be the first decent DC game to be made? It sure looks like it IMO.

Solid graphic novel, hopefully they can bring the same crazy grittiness to this game.

I hope Eidos doesn't F this up. The screenshots look great and adding Mark Hamill as the voice of the joker is brilliant. Now they should use Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman.
