Laugh Riot: Arkham City’s Joker

Arkham City is going to be packed full of villains but the place wouldn’t be complete without the Joker. We knew he was going to be there, of course, but this trailer tells us a little bit more about what he’ll be doing. Referring to deadly plans while holding up a twisted carnival mirror to Batman’s unsmiling granite face and cackling like Luke Skywalker’s demented uncle, that’s what he’ll be doing. Nothing much new then, although he is looking more horrible than ever and hopefully now he's not pulling all the strings (unless he is), he'll be more chaotic and frightening. Just when I’m feeling extremely happy at the idea of beating up goons and twirling my cape in their faces, the trailer ends with a release date. It’s not the right one though.

It’s hard for me to stay mad for long, in an angry sense at least. I managed to play a little of the game at the Eurogamer Expo this weekend and even though I’ll need to sit down with it from the beginning to make any real judgement, I would describe myself as giddily enthused.
