Batman Will Catch a Cold if He Doesn't Get Out of the Rain

The fact that Infamous is the best superhero video game ever tells you that for whatever reason DC and Marvel have yet to get their shit together. That is not a slight on Infamous at all, just an observation. I loved Infamous. I wish every superhero game could be as awesome as Infamous. Things just haven’t worked out that way. Need I say more than “Superman 64”? Didn’t think so. Can Batman: Arkham Asylum finally be the video game that comic geeks have been waiting for?

I, for one, really hope so and am pretty psyched for this game. Not only is Mark Hamill reprising his role as the Joker but everything about this game screams “Bad Ass”. Add the fact that PS3 owners (hey, that’s me!) will be able to download The Joker as a playable character and you have a formula for win. Let’s just hope it all works out that way.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is scheduled to ship on August 25th. If you buy the collector’s edition ($99.99 SRP) you get a sweet 14″ Batarang, a 48 page Arkham journal filled with notes on the inmates and some other goodies.

Anyone else as excited as I am for this?

As a side note: how amazing would it be if Sucker Punch, developers of Infamous, did a Spider-Man game?

    While I don’t own a PS3 I have had the chance to play the Infamous demo and after playing the demo I wished I owned a PS3 for just for this game alone.

    I agree, this game looks very promising. Mostly every known batman villain is set to appear. I think that would be awesome if sucker punch made a spider-man game. The time has come for activision to give up the rights. They’ve made okay marvel titles..but nothing great.

    If you play as Joker do you still get the Joker taunting you and calling you “Batman” in the cutscenes?

    personally i think they need a new voice for batman. kevin conroy is it? yea i think he is getting to old sounding. mark hamill’s voice seems to have the same problem. they should start looking for replacements. still looking forward to the game 😀

    I think it would have been amazing if Batman had said at least something like yes.
