If you were wondering what that pixelated pic from GameStop was where they mentioned a big announcement coming up, well...
Turns out the announcement is for this little game I'm sure none of you have heard of -- Arkham Knight
These exclusives are for GameStop pre-orders only
! Pre-orders will come with not one but TWO (2)
additional DLC packs where you will be able to play as both Harley Quinn (which, apparently, was announced about a month ago and I totally missed it) aaaaand
the Red Hood!
Consider my pants officially wet!
Very sneaky, slipping this one in all quiet-like last night! Of all the Arkham Knight
teasers so far, this one is -- by far -- the best!
Finally, some actual gameplay footage shows us how the Batmobile (which is supposed to play a big role in this game) races across Gotham and lays waste to obstacles and objects in Batman's way! We also see some brand knew moves Batman's developed to take down enemies. Makes you wonder how much time you're going to dedicate deliberately taking out enemies in the same manner over and over again.
And, no, don't refresh. There's nothing wrong with the video. I almost refreshed until I heard the clue and remembered everything was perfectly fine!
As if the anticipation for Batman: Arkham Knight
weren't killing me enough (and we still have to wait until 2015), here's yet another teaser! As if just having the Batmobile in the game alone weren't giving me enough of a nerd-boner, here it is in Battle Mode
I'm dying! Just dying!
If you thought the first Arkham Knight
trailer looked amazing, take a gander at the second with official gameplay footage!
Holy. Freaking. Crap.
The clever folks over at eurogamer
have put together an HD gallery of 15 new images for Arkham Knight
From what I've read, we're getting serious face-time with the Riddler, like, to the point where his appearance changes through the course of the game (ala Batman's in all the Arkham games)! Add to that some possible time with Oracle, as suggested from the image in the gallery.
Holy time-span, Batman! I can't wait to play this!
: Did anyone else know Batman develops a 5 o'clock shadow by the end of Arkham City
? I sure didn't.)
Holy titillation, Batman!
Along with a brand new trailer (below), we now know three tidbits confirmed for Arkham Knight
: first, we are now getting a DRIVABLE FRICKIN' BATMOBILE!
Second, Kevin Conroy
is coming back as the voice of the Dark Knight! Hee! And last but not least, the game has been given back to Rocksteady
, the folks who brought us the first two Arkham games!
If you're like me, you thought WB Montreal's Arkham Origins
-- though decent -- was a major disappointment and needed to die a slow, painful, icy death. I've only played through the story mode once, haven't touched it since. Meanwhile, I've lost track how many times I've gone back to the first two to play again and again. Even after Origins.
Gripes aside, I can't wait to get my hands on this!
