Brucie Bonus: Free DLC for Batman Arkham Asylum

I'll be Wotting My Thinks all over Rocksteady's much-ballyhooed Batman adventure next week (we'd hoped for sooner, but I've been fruitlessly chasing review code for weeks now. Apparently the fancy PhysX effects have held it up), but until then let's bask in the warm glow of promised free stuff. No idea what the free DLC will be, but it's due on the 17th - a…

The Bat-Physics: Arkham Asylum Tech Trailer

We're going to be taking a closer look at Bruce Wayne's secret identity on PC soon, but until we do there's a rather shiny "showcase" trailer showing off how implementation of physics engine tech looks on nVidia-powered PCs. Stuff swirls and swishes and dudes get kicked. It's quite impressive. It's still the same gloomy, doomy Arkham Asylum, but there's quite a lot more detail. And,…

To The Bat Trailer!

There's a launch trailer appeared for Batman: Arkham Asylum. Launch, that is, for the console version of course. The PC version is being delayed until 15th September, so it can be filled with PhysX magic. In the meantime, of course, you can play the demo, and if you're thinking of upgrading your graphics card for the occasion, NVidia has just announced they're giving away a…

Batman: Arkham Asylum Demo, Trailers

The Batman: Arkham Asylum demo is up, and weighs in at a portly 2gb. The third-person action game seems to be earning reactions ranging from the satisfied to the hysterical, but at least you can judge for yourself in this instance. You can get it here or here. The PC version of the superheroic skull-thumping game is out September 15 in North America and September…

Bat-Biff! Batman Combat Trailer

So, this has perked up my interest in the forthcoming Bat-brawler. This new Batman: Arkham Asylum trailer shows the caped protagonist beating on the nasties in a knuckle-crunching fashion. It looks remarkably robust and fairly fluid. The devs had been promising a flowing combat experience, and, judging by the game footage we see here, they might just have pulled it off. We should find out…

Metal Gear Batman: Arkham Asylum Stuffs

The dark'n'mysterious picture of what manner of beast Batman: Arkham Asylum may be is becoming clear. Beneath the cut, footage straight outta GDC of the Splinter Cell/Metal Geary Invisible Predator mode. You can also find my initial thoughts on that and another of AA's modes (a high score attack one, very much in the the vein of The Club) in a big ol' preview piece…

Batman Sneaks For Victory

It would be fun to extrapolate a kind of superheroic Splinter Cell from this new stealth-action trailer, but I don't suppose the reality of Arkham Asylum will be anything like as precise as Ubi's military infiltrations. Nevertheless the BatAction does look fairly entertaining, with plenty of swooping and batarang-ing. I'm wondering whether this or Wolverine will win out in the third-person action stakes. I guess…

Arkham Asylyum Video: Will I Become A Bat?

A new trailer of Rocksteady's forthcoming Batman Arkham Asylum has gone live. You'll find it beneath the cut, and see a lot of criminals being a cowardly and superstitious lot. The last time we posted about it, a lot of people seemed a little bewildered about what the game's about. I've actually seen it a couple of times, so you'll some thoughts on exactly what…

Arkham Asylum Trailer

Eidos have released the first teaser trailer of their Batman game, and it's looking appropriately moody. The game is being developed by British studio Rocksteady Studios, who previously developed moderately successful (critically anyway) console first-person shooter Urban Chaos: Riot Response. However, all we really know about this latest Batman game is Eidos' blurb: "Upon entering Arkham Asylum, The Joker greets Batman over a loudspeaker and…

A Cowardly, Superstitous Lot Of Screenshots

The Poisoned Sponge points us in the direction of the first shots of the previously announced Batman: Arkham Asylum. And they're quite the bunch - there's a real gritty lot to it, which feeds into the whole current Dark Knight hype, while having something of the seediness which brings to mind the much-loved-by-Jim Riddick: Escape from Butchers Bay. Oh - and a splash of the…

Dinner-Dinner-Dinner-Dinner…

BATMAN! Game Informer's new issue reveals Batman: Arkham Asylum, a bat-chap game from Rocksteady Studios who you may know from (er) not much, but they're fellow North London boys, so I'll nod at them respectively. While games like Assasin's Creed may have hinted how a more open-world Batman game would work, from the very scant information here, it doesn't appear the way they're going -…
