Batman Arkaham City Style Fight Scene Is Amazing

by on November 19, 2011 >> Videos


The guys and gals at Thousand Pounds Action Company have done a lot of great video game and anime inspired fights, including several based on Street Fighter IV. Here they’ve taken a page out of the free flowing fight mechanics of Batman Arkham City and let their female lead Mickey Facchinello go on an ass kicking rampage against some thugs.

One of the things that makes Thousand Pounds so special isn’t just the clean moves they pull off but also their dynamic cinematography which appears to be as planned with the fights themselves, moving with each strike. Some one please gives these cats a budget and lets see what they can really do. Watch the fight after the jump.

Watch Nightwing kick some ass in Arkham City

by on October 26, 2011 >> PCPS3VideosXbox

What does Nightwing have that Batman doesn’t? Well he’s got a $6.99 (560 MSP) DLC for starters, which just happens to feature his unique gadgets, special moves, and looks. It’s kind of too bad that you can only play him in challenge mode, cause flying around the city as Nightwing sounds fun, but at least he does come with 2 new maps (Wayne Manor and Main Hall) and an Animated Series Nightwing skin. This DLC will be available November 1 on Xbox 360 and PS3 (even though the game still won’t be out yet on PC) and if you want some more Dick Grayson in your life, his Robin Bundle Pack will be available on November November 22 for the same price.

Check him out after the break.

Sexism In Arkham City, A Reply to Film Critic Hulk

by on October 20, 2011 >> PS3Xbox


Recently a person who I respect, Britt Hayes, wrote an article that was a reply of sorts to FilmCritHulk’s commentary on the sexism that is so apparent in Batman: Arkham City. Britt hadn’t played the game yet, and as some one who has finished the majority of the game I felt as though I had some insight to the game, and could make a few points that maybe FilmCritHulk had missed. I suggest you go read their articles and then come back, and while I know that may take a while, I’ll still be here waiting for you when you finish. Oh and sorry about FilmCritHulk’s all caps thing… he writes in character. Back? Ok good Read on for the full response.

Unboxing: Batman Arkham City Collector’s Edition

by on October 18, 2011 >> ComicsPS3UnboxingVideosXbox

Just got one of the best looking Collector’s Editions of all time, and I wanted to share it’s unboxing with you all. With this edition comes a statue made by Kotobukia, early acces to the Iceberg Lounge Challenge Map, early access to the Dark Knight Returns skin, Collectible Art Book, bonus DC Universe animated original movie “Batman: Gotham Knight”, digital download of “Batman: Arkham City The Album”. For whatever reason I got two codes for Catwoman and no code for my Dark Knight Returns skin. This kind of bothered me, but I’m looking into getting it replaced. Click for full unboxing video

Review: Batman: Year One

by on October 13, 2011 >> MoviesReviews

Batman is a universally loved character and there are a lot of different ways he can be written. You can make the cartoony over the top Batman that you saw with Adam West and the currently running Batman: The Brave and the Bold. You can write him dark and serious like Batman: The Animated Series and Christopher Nolan’s films. There’s of course a mix in between but my favorite version of Batman is the one in the shadows, the detective, the true crime fighter.

Keep reading for the full review.

Holy Replay Value Batman! Arkham City Has Game + Mode

by on September 6, 2011 >> NewsPS3Wii UXbox


Over at the Arkham City Forums, community leader Sarah has given us some details on why you may want to play through Batman: Arkham City a second time after you’ve finished it. If you beat the game on Normal or Hard it looks like you get to keep all your progress including XP and gadgets. This gives you the upper had, but all the bad guys are bit tougher, and you won’t be getting that helpful counter maneuver icon that appears over their heads when they attack. I’m up for the challenge! Are you? Read on to see what other special features Game + has in the official statement from Sarah.
