The early years of the Dark Knight revealed. Taking place five years before Arkham Asylum, the game will take you through the start of not only Batman’s career but some of his rogues gallery. Rocksteady, the developer of Arkahm Asylum and City did not develop Arkahm Origins. Warner Bros. Games Montreal has taken over development using game’s existing resources. Can this unestablished team give us a game we deserve?
The conclusion to Commander Shepard’s battle against the Reapers has finally begun. For the past five years Bioware has set the groundwork for the choices you’ve made. Will your decisions come and stab you in the back or will everything change as a result?
Earlier last month, I reviewed the open beta for Gotham City Impostors. For those unfamiliar Gotham City Impostors is a downloadable game developed by Monolith. Civilians dress up and model themselves after Batman and the Joker. These two factions decide to take matters into their own hands and shoot it out. The game has a similar feel to Team Fortress 2 as it has a dark sense of humour as well. Is Gotham City Impostors a competent shooter or is it a poor imitation?
Just coming off the Starhawk beta I stumbled across yet another beta. Gotham City Impostors is an upcoming first person shooter based on the Batman universe. You either play as the Batz, average joes dressed up in cowls and wearing the Batman symbol or the Jokerz, average joes dressed up like the psychotic clown. It shares similarities with Team Fortress 2 with it’s comedic violent style and it’s gameplay. This will be a downloadable title on PSN and XBLA. An open beta was just released and from what I played the online is going to need a lot of work.
Batman Arkham City is the highly anticipated sequel to Batman Arkham Asylum Arkham Asylum broke new grounds on what it meant to be a licensed superhero game. Even the best licensed superhero games may have had gameplay but many have failed to provide a compelling story, narrative and has not appealed to gamers well. Arkham Asylum accomplished all of those things and has won multiple game of the year awards and has become the best superhero game in the eyes of many gamers. Does Batman Arkham City live up to the cowl or does this bat fall short?
