Sexy new Batman: Arkham City screens show knuckle-popping and a potential bat-face-plant

You there! Yes, you. You certainly strike me as a man/woman/hermaphrodite/sentient moss hankering after a fresh new batch of none-more cinematic, none-more henchman-hurting Batman: Arkham City screenshots.

What's that you say? I am so perceptive it hurts? Well, after a compliment like that I'd be a solid gold bastard if I didn't give you some.

Well, what do we have here then? Why, a selection of fine imagery depicting the Batman amid some good-natured hijinx about town, variously beating down goons with a new, hand-crushing melee move, showing off some tightrope antics, and plain old just having a whale of a time with some good old-fashioned swooping and leaping. Oh Batman, you are a card.

Just one worry. That headfirst plummet move is going to require careful aim or a seriously reinforced faceplace in that cowl. Otherwise his secret identity is going to bleeding obvious, Bruce Wayne being the only other man in Gotham with a two-dimensional fizzog.

So, only one question remains. Are you excited about Arkham City? Or are you trouser-troublingly excited?

    Weren't all of these screenshots already displayed earlier? I feel like I've seen all of these before and... I would know... considering that I... -ahem- studied them... intensely.

    To be honest? No. I played the first one and wasn't too impressed

    Is it normal to sport an erection whilst viewing video game pics? Then yes, super stoked!

    Wow, thanks to the news about this game, I just put out a fire in a nearby orphanage with my *ahem* "excitement". YAY :D
  • PolarBearsInHeat - October 11, 2010 9:52 p.m.

    Trouser troubingly excited

  • Markstone - October 11, 2010 9:09 p.m.

    why does Batman hates juggalos so much?
  • oryandymackie - October 11, 2010 7:45 p.m.

    Does anyone else think the second picture looks a little bit...gimpy? ;)

    Well the first game did not dissapoint, so the sequel - so frikkin awesome so far by the way- should be a doozy. What I can decipher from the pics is exactly what we all wanted and that would be a sequel that expands on the good sides of the first title but also keeps the good stuff- eliminating the bad stuff (were there any really? lol!). 1) The visual graphics are superb, really close if not identical to the first title. That's good. Really good. The one thing I was sooooo into about the Asylum was the fact that the graphics did not dissapoint but once. Finally a superhero game I could play and not feel like a 10 year old. The new Batman movies really helped the final crystalizatiion of what the fans wanted from a Batman game. 2) The combat system also seems the same if not "boosted" with some kickass finishing or incapacitating moves like: "your knuckles belong to me now buddy". The new goons also seem more sophisticated as far as the appearance goes. I never get tired beating up joker gangsters. I hope the variety keeps growing. Still no mini bosses though... maybe a batarang straight to the head was too much for them? Lol! 3)The movement in what it seems to be a sandbox "moving around the city" is still a mystery. I really hope to see the Batmobil in action. Still I would not mind doing some kickass acrobatics on telephone wires! Also, we have the flight system of wich we already got a decent taste in the first title. Maybe this will be the major means of transportation. I have mixed feelings on this.... Wheels or Wings? PLease Activision, let it be both! So far the game looks goooood.... Lets hope we can wait till the actual release of the title....

    I have a feeling that the faceplant bat dive is going to be like the dives in Assassin's Creed where you do it at special launch points and then land in hay or something like that.
  • Helios - October 11, 2010 5:16 p.m.

    I don't even have the first one and I'm excited about this game. Darn it, I need to get Arkham Asylum.
  • FACANAWESOME - October 11, 2010 5:13 p.m.

    AWESOME!!!! I can't wait to play this.
  • kuroda - October 11, 2010 5:07 p.m.

    Damn, I can't wait for this game to come out!!! Maybe I'm looking to much into this but who's the guy on the second to last picture? Looks like he's wearing some sort of toy soldier outfit or something... He doesn't look like the guys joker had on his crew in the first game and he doesn't look like any of the bad guys i've seen of this game so far, anybody got a clue?
