Beamdog has explained why it won't be bringing Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition to the Wii U, despite the platform's seemingly ideal touchscreen controls. "We don't do Nintendo development," explains the studio's founder: "the Wii is a toy, not a console..."
Who's your favorite Two-Face? Is it the tortured schizophrenic of Grant Morrison's Arkham Asylum comic, Batman Forever's uncommonly flamboyant Tommy Lee Jones, or Hush's doomed hero? Rocksteady has just unveiled its take on the character for October's Batman: Arkham City, presented in a none-too-subtle nod to one of the character's stronger influences: Clint Eastwood's maverick-cop classic, Dirty Harry...
Last week’s video featuring 12 minutes of gameplay from Batman: Arkham City left us all extremely excited for the already-anticipated title, and once it was over we were hungry for more. We thought we’d have to wait another four months to see what happens after that trailers end, but luckily someone filmed what follows at a preview event, and despite the vid’s minor quality issues, our eyes were glued to the screen. Check it for yourself...
Every new scrap of information we get pertaining to Batman: Arkham City makes us even more eager for the sequel to GR’s 2009 Game of the Year. Recently we’ve heard about Robin and Riddler, plus we saw Catwoman playable at E3, but today the developers released possibly the largest amount of raw data about the game to date. Feast your eyes on 12 full minutes of gameplay straight from the anticipated title...
While many still wonder if Talia al Ghul, daughter of one of Batman’s greatest foes and one of Bruce’s main love interests, will make an appearance in Dark Knight Rises, today at Comic-Con we got a more important confirmation. The femme fatale will be appearing in the incredibly awesome-looking Batman: Arkham City, and she’ll be voiced by Stana Katic from the TV show Castle. Also, she's looking a little blonder than we're used to. Talia, did you get highlights?
A few months ago rumors started popping up that Batman’s sidekick and constant chum Robin would make an appearance in Arkham City. Though we had fun speculating on it, the rumors slowly faded away as new info was revealed on Riddler, Penguin and a playable Catwoman. Now, thanks to what seems to be a big mistake on the part of retailer Best Buy, it looks like Robin is almost certainly going to appear in the Bat-sequel, and be playable too. Posted as part of the major US retailer’s online advertising, apparently pre-ordering the game at Best Buy grants you access to two “Challenge Maps” where you can play as Robin. The situation sounds similar to the PS3-exclusive Joker maps for Arkham Asylum, so perhaps the Boy Wonder won’t be playable in the main story, but it’d be strange if the team at Rocksteady designed Robin and not had him make an appearance in the campaign...
You may recall that a couple weeks ago we got our first look at the box art for Batman: Arkham City. A funny thing happened on the way to the printers apparently, as today we’ve been given new assets that Rocksteady and Warner Bros are calling the “official front of box art.” So erase that other cover from you mind and get ready for the new reality...
After months of rumors, a couple weeks ago developer Rocksteady confirmed that Robin would not only be in the sequel to Arkham Asylum but is playable in a set of challenge maps. Some were shocked by Robin’s appearance, particularly the shaved head that’s all the rage with space marines these days. Today Rocksteady had an explanation for Robin’s new look, and even included the first full-color image of comic’s premier sidekick...
Normally I’m the type of player that rarely completes all the side missions in a game; just finishing the main campaign is enough for me. But that wasn’t the case in Batman: Arkham Asylum, as the hunt to unlock all the Riddler’s mysteries was so engrossing that it kept me playing B:AA long after the Joker was defeated. Now Arkham City is just a few months away and it looks like for the sequel Edward Nigma has really stepped up his game. Take a look at the hot-off-the-presses trailer...
