I gots me some moments.  O0

By the way, Rocksteady claims if you're a "ninja" you should be able to run through the game in 8hours, minimum. I ain't ninja, so I'm assuming it'll take me much longer to get through it.

It took me sooo much longer than everyone to finish the first game.  I really love to sneak and take my time absorbing everything in the game.  Lots of fun, but takes forever.

I played Arkham Asylum on the PS3, don't remember why, I think I borrowed the game from a friend. But I've yet to start the GOTY copy I've purchased for the 360. Which is now beckoning for some attention, but I know once I start it, it'll dominate a great chunk of time, eventhough I've essentially already been through it.

Following a series of flaky rumours, Warner Bros has now confirmed that the Penguin will be p-p-p-p-p-popping into Batman: Arkham City.

Featured on the cover of this month's PSM3 magazine, the rotund villain can be seen sporting a classic fur coat & top hat combo.

We're still waiting to hear more about the flavour of trouble he'll be cooking up for Batman, although based on previous experience you can almost certainly expect something sadistic and/or umbrella based.

Glancing over the diabolical guest list for this year's Batman, it's hard to think of many villains that haven't been invited to have a crack at old bats. Arkham City is shaping up to be one hell of a party.

Loving the re-imagining of him visually, just from that cover, very psycho-pimp-style.

Those look cheap as hell.  The little pointed area in the bottom / center also looks like it would be uncomfortable.

On the ... bright side, you'll now be ... blind as a bat by those gawdawful lights.



But seriously:
The d-pad on the 360 controller is most likely an improvement over the official 360 controller.
The 360-style layout and size of the PS3 controller is definitely an improvement over the official PS3 controller.

If I didn't already own of the these, I may have consider buying the PS3 version.

You can play as Robin in Batman: Arkham City.

He's playable in two Challenge maps, according to Game Informer - but only to people who purchase the game at Best Buy. And Best Buy is only available to people in the US.

Hopefully they'll release Robin (and other preorder bonuses) as DLC after release.

It's been a tumultuous week for the Boy Wonder. After months of speculation, a Best Buy advertisement confirmed that Robin would be in developer Rocksteady's sequel. However, the ad made it seem that only Best Buy preorders would get the Robin challenge maps. The Internet freaked out, but it looks like everyone will get Robin at some point.

The news came from a forum post by Sarah Wellock, Rocksteady's European community manager. In it, Wellock confirms that Robin is coming to the challenge maps and that players can "pre-order with selected retailers to gain exclusive early access."

The word choice of "exclusive early access" falls in line with my hypothesis from yesterday. Either preorder folks are getting Robin right out of the gate while the rest of the world has to work for him in the game or the content is a timed exclusive that will one day be available for everyone.

Wellock's scoops about the Dark Knight's sidekick didn't stop there. She also confirmed that Tim Drake will be Batman: Arkham City's Robin. If you're not a DC Comics nerd, Tim Drake was the third Robin in the current DC Comics continuity. He followed in the footsteps of Dick Grayson and Jason Todd but has since broken away from the mantle and begun his own crime fighting career as Red Robin.

If you're depressed that Dick Grayson -- the original Robin -- isn't wearing the red tights, don't be. Remember, we did spot a "Flying Graysons" poster not too long ago in Arkham City, so there's a chance Nightwing (Dick's alter-ego before becoming Batman in the comics) might show up.
