A couple of new trailers are up highlighting some of the villains. Bane and Harley Quinn are currently up. Arleen Sorkin is the voice of Harley (yes!) and has a new costume. It's kinda hot but also bothers me since it plays like fan service. I hate to see what Ivy will look like if she's in the game. Then again, if Ivy is in the game, Harley and Ivy team fight. Still, as a Harley fan boy, I am so fraking excited for this.

I can't wait either it looks like from the footage that it's a dark DC Animated Universe game. The reason I say that is the fact they've gotten most of the DCAU actors/actresses back to play the voices. wayyy cool.

I assume it will be the version of Ivy where there are leaves covering her naughty bits and not much else.

the $100 version of Arkham Asylum will include a 14" replica Batarang modeled after the weapon from the game. Also lined up for the bundle are an Arkham doctor's 48-page, leather-jacketed journal detailing some of the Asylum's more criminally insane residents, as well as a behind the scenes DVD, and a code to download the exclusive "Crime Alley" challenge map.

I preordered it today. The guy asked if I wanted the collectors or original I asked what was in it. He said "it costs 100 buck, but wait. It comes with a 14 inch batarang". I said "shit, they knew what to put in there to get me to buy it. I'll take it".

Dang, and I was going to try and save money also. Well, it is a batarang. Damn, these collector's versions are made for gullible fanboys like us.

They could have put a full size Batman cowl in and I would have laughed, but there is something about a foot long knife made to throw that makes me waste money.

Yea except all the demo videos I've seen make it look like a dumb third person button masher...which really doesn't do much for me. I want some stealth play and such as well.

There's a lot of stealth and whatnot in there too.

(though the action is a LOT of fun; I played it last week and loved it)

Actually, I think it's like what they did with Mystique in the X-Men movies; it looks like bikini underwear, but with plants.

Isn't that how she is in the comics, too?

With the exception of a mini-series about the same time as the movie, she usually wears just the white dress with the skulls or some kind of leather outfit. It hasn't been updated since 2004, but here's a costume gallery of Mystique.

I meant Poison Ivy, actually.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of Mystique's movie "costume" at all. Reptilian skin=/=hot.

Oh, okay. Yeah, in the comics, her costume is anything from a green, leafy leotard to some strategically placed leaves.

I get a sense of Killing Joke from this, in the designs for Joker and Bats. Opening cinematic is intriguing.

Gameplay footage as Joker is a little eh, I don't like the random dramatic slowdowns, and the camera seems a bit Kingdom Hearts esque in that it's constantly changing angles and making me vaguely nauseous.

I didn't know Paul Dini wrote the script.

I hope they have Victor Zsasz, just for a cut scene of him making a cut for killing guards, and saying he had none space right on his wrist for Batman.

But this game looks good, but has anyone else thought that the Joker looks like a mix of Nicholson and Ledgers Jokers.

The outfit and look of Nicholson and the disheveled hair and feel of the character from Ledger, or was that just me who saw they might have used them as Joker models.

I really want this game except that I have none of those systems. I have a Wii, a Nintendo DS, and a PSP, no xbox 360 or PS3! I don't even have a PC, I have a Mac, hopefully they will also release for Mac.

Someone please buy me an Xbox 360!

Just go to gamestop and buy a used one for cheap and then turn rape whistle ronald into the police and collect the reward money and get a TV.
