Batman: Close to the edge

Batman: Close to the edge

The Dark Knight looks really angry in this latest batch of screenshots from the highly anticipated Batman: Arkham Asylum.

I hope the alternative suits won't be downloadable content.

Buy the PC-version, and you will get all the skins made by the community for free.

These screens don't look as good as the last batch. Was this downgraded?

This is most certainly one of my most anticipated games of 2009. It's coming along superbly.

I can't wait! I'd like more gameplay videos because I'm greedy like that.

Well I hope he's backed up with awesomeness then.

If I try to imagine him without the mask as regular Bruce Wayne, I quickly stop and imagine it back again. Seriously, with that gob he has to be preeeetty rough looking. He's lucky he's rich I guess, or a woman wouldn't look at him twice. (And wish she hadn't looked at him once.)

Yes of course, well spotted. Since the last shots a few weeks ago the developers have done a complete pass over all the art making it all look worse, just to annoy you!

lol i see what you did there.. Frank Miller baby!

I think the creators of this batman have been inspired greatly by jim lee's artwork.. this batman looks similar to the one in All star batman & Robin by Frank Miller & Jim lee.

He's got the beard, the tough guy look, big, muscular and just pissed at criminals..in a sense he is as messed up as the criminals in arkham.

you guys talked about skins? huh? so the 360/ps3 will have downloadable ones but the PC ones are all free?

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (16 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (17 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (17 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (38 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (39 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (45 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (57 minutes ago)
