Batman: Arkham City video details dark psychology, exploding Robin, most detailed open-world ever

How do these Arkham City videos keep getting more exciting?

You get Rocksteady's Dax Ginn (real name, not that of a Star Trek character) talking you through a whole raft of footage, explaining how AC will be the most detailed open-world around, how playing as Bats will be completely different from playing as Catwoman and Robin (the former is more slinky, sexy and stealy, the latter is far more explodey), and very excitingly, how much Batman's royally screwed-up head is going to come into play this time around. It sounds like quite a lot. Which is good.

So click Play, and commence geeking out with me immediately.

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
