After I heard from Spike TV VGA Awards that there will be another Batman:Arkham Asylum, I rushed over to Youtube to see the trailer. Youtube has always failed me before, but for my computer’s sake, there better be a trailer for the upcoming game. Luckily there was, as I stared at my screen with bulging eyes as I watched this surprise in high definition. I can sum up this trailer with three words: Mark ‘Fucking’ Hamill.
All I can think about now is how this game is going to turn out. I was an advent fan of the first game. Part of it can be because of my love for the Batman series in all, the old Adam West show, the original 1990’s cartoon series, where Mark Hamill voiced his brilliancy, and the overall nature of Batman himself. To top it off, I loved the first Batman: Arkham Asylum game. I loved the style, the characters, the fighting, the story, and the overall scheme to it. How can Rocksteady make it better than the first. I thought about it, and I came up with e few things.
We can all safely agree that this game can introduce new villains, including the return of old ones, besides the Joker, who we need to tickle our fancy. I would like to see some villains mentioned in the Riddler’s riddles , like Penguin, Two Face, Catwoman, and even the Riddler himself. They all would bring a more joyful playing experience, especially if they somehow all worked together. Some villains I would like to see to return to the new game would be Killer Croc, Scarecrow, and Clayface. You did not get to see much of Clayface, if you were not paying attention that is, but I bet he will be a big part in this game. The fighting which includes the controls were brilliant. I had no problem with it, as long as I can still kick 40 henchmen’s asses at a time I am good. One small favor though; is there a way we can ride the Batmobile or maybe one of the other vehicles Batman owns? If I can run over a henchman that will be a big plus. Also, there could be an idea floating around for a multiplayer, one where you can become Robin. I of course just created that idea, but those different voices in my head get me confused sometimes for other people. Perhaps a multiplayer where you are the villain, or henchmen, very weak henchmen, where your goal is to take out Batman, a.k.a. another player. It could be 30 plus against Batman and you would still lose, but it would be fun.
I have no clue on what the storyline will be about. Only thing I got from the trailer is that either the Joker escaped, or he made himself a new home in Gotham somewhere. Worst part about it is that he looked hurt, still having a blast of fun, but still looking bad from his last encounter with “Batsy”. So either Harley Quinn will rise up and take charge or more villains will do Joker’s bidding. Either way I can’t wait until a new trailer comes out for the game, hopefully. Until then, this trailer will bring us our hopes and dreams for when the game is finally released.
