  • Damn this game is fun. If you played the first Arkham Asylum they did an amazing job on the sequel.

    By far the best comic-based game and one of the best action/adventure games out there.

    The island of Arkham City is huge. Trying to get 100% in this game will be crazy hard.

    The combat system is better too with more ways to chain your combos now with tech-combos.

  • Yeah, I've only played for about an hour, but it seems pretty awesome. I beat the first one, but I agree with you, the city-aspect adds a lot to the game. Combat is better than ever. Picked it up @ Kmart and got a $30 gaming coupon with purchase, meaning I'll be able to pick up Skyrim for $29 in a few weeks too, an added bonus.

  • Beat the main story before the weekend and now I'm scurrying around Arkham City for all the Riddler Trophies and such.

    I felt like the main story went by really fast.... but I think that's because I avoided a lot of the side missions (which I'm not even half-way through yet) and a lot of the Riddler Trophies.

    Having a blast still and some of these Trophies are really confusing me. I haven't consulted any guidebooks or anything... yet.

  • It slays me to see any modern game list "recommended requirements" as having a dual-core processor. Recommended my ass.

  • Yeah, Dom. Arkham City, BF3, (which I now have, obviously) Elder Scrolls V, (Skyrim to you worthless scrubs that don't recognize) and then, the big prize, Star Wars: The Old Republic at the end of the year. However, already for 2012, I'm waiting for Aliens: Colonial Marines and Mass Effect 3, lol. ME3 in particular because they confirmed co-op in it, which will be amazing.

    It's a great time to be a gamer. Haven't had a run of top-notch games like this since...hell, maybe even EVER?

  • Pretty much every major villan makes an appearance as a cameo in this game. It's like playing a comic book.

  • That's awesome. Are there any recognizable voices?

    Also, I just looked it up on IMDB, (link) and look who voices The Joker. Mark Hamill! That's awesome, haha. (Luke Skywalker, for those of you that are utterly clueless.)

  • Hamill has been voicing Joker since Batman - the Animated Series along with Kevin Conroy.

    the actor that voice Nathan Drake (Uncharted Series) voices the Penguin. Would have never guessed it.

    There's a link (found it) out there with photos of all the voice cast.

  • Also, if you have Arkham City; go see the Calendar Man in the basement of the courthouse today. If your console is set to the correct date, it's part of an achievement/trophy for seeing the Calendar Man on specific holidays like Halloween.
