Arkham City Follow-Up Coming Soon?

New Batman Game Coming Soon. Whooyeah.

While not given an official fancy announcement yet… the 2012 Q4 Earnings Report from a Time Warner Conference Call makes a brief mention of the fact that a 3rd game to the Batman Arkham series could be out as early as this year!

The report stated:

"We also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012."

That's around the corner, I wonder why no other mentions, previews, teasters, etc? Usually we see snippets of stuff months in advance. It's under wraps!


We have Arkham Asylum, we have Arkham City, so what's next? I always figured it would be Arkham State, but I heard a rumor that it might be 'Arkham Universe'. The rumor stems from the registration of some domain names by a 3rd party company that Warner Bros. uses. While the domain name just implies that something is going to have an Arkham Universe title, many are speculating that it's in reference to the next video game.

What could be happening in that game? Some of the loonies in Arkham like to think big by arming for the Universe? Or maybe someone who likes to think big is taking over the Arkham folks to use them as a distraction? Lex Luthor, maybe? Not far fetched, considering I've heard reports of the next game including The Justice League in some way. Also mentioned about the next game, is that it would include "flashback" stuff inspired from Silver Age Batman.

Either way, that's Capital. I welcome another game. I recently beat Arkham City, and now am going back to get all The Riddler trophies and 100% completion. It has great story mode, but it's still one of those games you can pop in to beat up goons and practice your Batman-ness if you get bored.

You know what game was good for that beat em up and kill time factor? Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu. That game was a pretty dope level based beat em up game. Tell me you did not have fun playing that game and I will stand there in slackjawed wonder.

Arkham City Catwoman Trailer. Because Catwoman is awesome.

Am I the only one who found it gross that she has a move where she kisses the thug before she bashes him? Ew. All those goons are dirty and gross. They've been locked in that part of Arkham City for who knows how long with no showers or toothbrushes. Nasty. Annnyway... kicking ass with her is sexy! If you are good at fighting, she moves so seamless and fluid. It's like sweet, sweet poetry for your eyeballs. Just look at it... look. ^

Even though there's less for her to do, I play with the Catwoman Download a lot. There's a Robin and a Nightwing DLC which seemed cool too. Not sure which one would be more entertaining. Anybody have a recommendation? Leave a comment!
