Batman and Robin's latest outing answers some questions, and raises even more.
Batman: Arkham City was arguably one of last year's best games. Not only did it provide a ton of fan-service for Batman fanatics, but it also was a fantastic game, providing a great story, addictive combat, and brilliant production values. One of the most memorable parts of the game, for better or worse is how it ended. Harley Quinn's Revenge deals with the shocking conclusion to Arkham City, and its effect on not only Harley, but the Caped Crusader himself.
This review contains some spoilers of the ending to Batman: Arkham City. You have been warned!
New DLC starring the homicidal girlfriend of the Joker, plus a GotY version of the game.
With Batman about to have his hands full with the Court of Owls in the comic book, the digital version of the Caped Crusader is about to face a new challenge. Harley Quinn is back with a vengeance in a big piece of DLC for Batman: Arkham City. They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and that goes double when she happens to be in love with the Clown Prince of Crime, the Joker.
And no, you can't dress Bruce Wayne up like Santa.
Rocksteady wants you to enjoy the holidays by dropping from the housetops on henchmen skulls in style. They've announced that they'll be making a new suit available for the World's Greatest Detective based on Batman Inc. Here's a quote from their announcement on the official website:
One of the locales from Arkham Asylum will return to Arkham City.
Batman: Arkham City is chock full of content and the DLC has already included other heroes from the Batman universe; however, it is still missing one element that was present in the last title - the Batcave. While Arkham Asylum didn't feature the original Batcave, it was a Batcave nonetheless.
360 missing save file glitch is affecting many gamers.
Games are getting bigger and bigger these days, and even with an army of QA testers it’s impossible to find every error and glitch. Normally the ones that don’t get through are harmless. At the worst you may have to reload a save file. But sometimes, you end up with a problem that can really ruin a gaming experience. That seems to be the case for a large number of gamers playing through the Xbox 360 version of Batman: Arkham City, as an odd glitch seems to be causing players to lose their save data.
Players will have to wait for the PC version for another week.
Warner Bros. Interactive announced that the PC release of Batman: Arkham City will be delayed by one week. Previously, the port was announced to be coming out on November 15, 2011, a delay from the console versions, which was released three weeks ago on October 18, 2011. Now it seems players will have to wait until November 22, 2011, with European gamers waiting until November 25.
Arkham Asylum brings in more money than Catwoman can steal in a night.
Batman: Arkham City has been poised to be one of the biggest games of 2011, and it seems like it has already achieved that. Our very own Jon Lewis liked it quite a bit, and if sales figures are to be believed, the rest of the world does, too.
One of the best games this year, period.
Seldom is there a licensed game as good as Batman: Arkham City. It succeeds in all of the areas that Arkham Asylum failed, while also keeping the fantastic ambiance, gameplay, and loyalty to the Batman franchise that we came to expect from the original. Pretty much every time I picked it up I easily ended up dropping at least three hours into the game and had no desire to put it down. I will go as far to say that Batman: Arkham City is not only the best comic based game ever, but a contender for game of the year.
