New Batman: Arkham City screens will improve your day 100% (after breaking its spine from the shadows)

Don't worry, it happens to us all. You've made it halfway through the week, surviving the attritional slog of Monday and bravely pushing through to the relative levitity of Tuesday, but now you've realised that it's Wednesday, the furthest possible point from any weekend, and you can barely bring yourself to think, such is the pain that will be inflicted if you do.

You're probably reading this from under a duvet, and you're very probably thinking that the only thing that could possibly give you reason to go on with the rest of this accursed day would be a few new Batman: Arkham City screenshots, showing Batman doing all kinds of cool Batman things in some beautifully grimy environments. Well fear not! Such things have arrived.

Batman. What a goddamn hero.

Above: Batman vs. helicopter. Who will win? Answer: Batman! Always Batman

Above: The fact that she's a psycho vs. the fact that she's wearing a revealing corset. Who will win? Err...  

Above: This image was taken yesterday. These three large goons are now six small bits of goons

Above: He does you know. Well, half of him probably does anyway. Always so contrary, Harvey...

    Harley looks awesome. And Batman cape and cowl look even better than the last game, can't bleeding wait!

    I'm getting pissed at people incorrectly focusing on the important parts of this game. Really, the title should be "Harley Quinns Arkham City (featuring Batman). She is the central character in the game.

    Awesome sauce, the environments look great, the gang members look good, Two Face looks awesome and oh yeah the sexy chick looks even more sexy! Can't wait for this game.

    Harley's outfit is fine, but her attitude doesn't look nearly crazy enough. Imma reference the Bro code on this one, on the correlation graph of hot vs. crazy, she should be waaaaay over the line into crazy territory. this doesn't look like it
  • EricBratcher - February 2, 2011 5:58 p.m.

    Harley's problem isn't her looks - she's obviously got that part nailed. It's the way every time she opens her mouth, that horrid, nasal Fran Drescher voice comes out. Well, that and the whole "psychotic, always trying to kill you" thing. I imagine that would get old eventually.

    Thugs wearing shirts and masks? When did Gotham's rank-and-file criminal element become so la-dee-dah? Some of the Penguin's style must have rubbed off on them...unless he's their new boss! Will Penguin's redesign be more Burton-esque or be contemporized only by a fancy new suit?

    Want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want,
  • Japanaman - February 2, 2011 4:12 p.m.

    Well, Harley Quinn actually looks sort of hot for once.
  • batmanboy11 - February 2, 2011 3:54 p.m.

  • marioman50 - February 2, 2011 3:23 p.m.

    I like the way Harley looks in this game a lot better than in Arkham Asylum.
  • drail117 - February 2, 2011 3:19 p.m.

    Harley Quinn, you never cease to amaze me. Thank you David for making the wait so much more worth it. I guess there is nothing i can do but to go back and play more of Arkham Asylum.
  • Myrmidon - February 2, 2011 3:11 p.m.

    brb, new underwear
  • celticsfan645 - February 2, 2011 2:53 p.m.

    I dont know, fighting games have a lot of scantily dressed fighters. For all we know, she is a highly trained assassin.
  • idlemindkiller - February 2, 2011 2:30 p.m.

    This year is going to take forever. On top of that, they will probably push it into 2012. Dear Rocksteady, Please finish this game now so that I can call my life fulfilled. I will pay you 1 US dollar. That is all. GO BATMAN!!!!!
  • zeetlock - February 2, 2011 2:07 p.m.

    big bang theory reference: sheldon:"I AM BATMAN!"
  • sirpsychosexy - February 2, 2011 1:53 p.m.
