are those shots from the Wii or PS3 version? 360 version surely will look better.

Umm...I really would not count on that. PS3 and 360 would look nearly identical in any case.


In before Kenshin! Hope they keep the same comedic style from the Star Wars games.

Well I guarantee the Wii version won't look as good as any of these shots. Some of the shots seem to be PC resolution.

With the other Lego games, they took the content that worked on PS2/Wii and just added effects and resolution to the 'next gen' versions. I suspect it will look pretty close to these shots, not much better.

the character designs seem to be based off the original TV show, yes. However, it's going to be an overall mix I think.

Traveller's Tales have not revealed many details about the game other than it will star Batman fighting crime in Gotham City.

An early build has been created and shown at certain conferences (such as at Game On in London) by designer Jonathan Smith himself for the PS2 console, with a small playable area sporting the exact same HUD as LEGO Star Wars II. Characters on screen each have individual animations and both Batman and Robin have their original TV show dressing style. Only a Fall 2008 date has been announced. No additional information about the game was given, aside from the style of the game focusing more on the original TV series and comics rather than the new movies. The Joker and the Penguin will make a playable appearance.

The inspirations for the various versions of vehicles and characters vary widely. For example, the Batmobile retains its basic sleek shape and prominent fins from the Tim Burton films. The Batboat is more of a hovercraft, and the Batwing looks very similar to the version in Batman Forever, albeit without decorative lights. The "Bat-tank" seems to be based off The tank-like Batmobile in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

They had better do some of the classic storylines like "A Death in the Family" and the Killing Joke, LOL. Imagining a Lego Robin being blown up and coming back as a vengeful Red Hood puts a smile on face.

With the "original tv show" i suppose you mean the one with Adam West? If that is what you mean, then let me remind you batman's suit was purple/blue-ish...kind of. Also Robin is showing way to little skin, lol ^^

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (0 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (2 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)
