‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ is a brilliant and frustrating finale for the series

29 June 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Batman: Arkham Knight

Developed by Rocksteady Studios

Published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

PC, PS4 (reviewed), Xbox One

In 2009 Rocksteady achieved what many thought was impossible; they made a genuinely good Batman game. With Arkham Asylum they created a claustrophobic atmosphere, told an enjoyable story featuring many of the caped crusader’s most notorious villains, and crafted a battle system that has been aped by everything from Shadow of Mordor to Sleeping Dogs. It wasn’t a perfect game, suffering from copy-pasted boss encounters and a couple of narrative mis-steps, but it was strong enough to inspire confidence that one day we’d get a dark knight video game that would do justice to the long-running DC Comics superhero.

Six years later and Arkham Asylum remains the best game in the Arkham series. First sequel City improved on the original by adding more villains and an impressive array of side-quests, »

Batman: Arkham Knight - in praise of the Batmobile

24 June 2015 7:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Driving the Batmobile is one of the major new features in Batman: Arkham Knight, and it’s completely transformed the series...

Nb: The following contains very mild spoilers for Batman: Arkham Knight.

In order to save Gotham, it’s become necessary to destroy it. Or at least, that’s my excuse, as I destroy railings, smash up cars and knock over an incalculable number of lampposts in Batman: Arkham Knight.

I’m a few hours into Rocksteady Studios’ sequel, and a thick cloud of finality looms over it. Batman’s in the middle of the worst night of his life, as a rogue’s gallery of super-villains - presided by the armoured, mysterious Arkham Knight - threaten to destroy Gotham. The dialogue is terse and full of portent. Thick clouds roll ominously past the full moon. And yet here I am barrelling around the city streets, having a whale of a time in the Batmobile. »

'Game of Thrones' Book Club: 'Mother's Mercy' is severely lacking in this traumatic finale

14 June 2015 11:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Each week, HitFix Harpy will be hosting the "Game of Thrones" book club. A safe space where readers of "A Song of Ice and Fire" can come to dissect the changes to the series and debate what will happen next. All without fear they'll accidentally spoil something for non-readers. ************ That’s all he wrote folks. In some cases literally. Tonight’s season finale of “Game of Thrones” butted right up against where Martin last left Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, and Jeyne Poole/Sansa Stark. Now we just have to wait 10 months to see what happens next. Unless “The Winds of Winter” comes out before next season, we’re completely off the map now. Warning: This Post Is Dark And Full Of Spoilers. Discussion All The Way Through “The Winds Of Winter“ Beyond This Point. #1: Jon Snow falls for the oldest trick in the book. Image Credit: HBO »

Harley Quinn Comes To Fight In The Latest Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer

2 June 2015 7:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a handful of delays, it’s hard to believe that we are only a few weeks away from getting our hands on Batman: Arkham Knight. With the release date in sight, Rocksteady has been releasing a steady stream of new trailers for the title. Yesterday saw the release of a Red Hood-centered clip, while today brings us new footage of former Joker galpal, Harley Quinn.

Originally revealed back in March, the Harley Quinn based Dlc takes place before the events of Batman: Arkham Knight. The prequel will have players infiltrating the Blüdhaven Police Department in order to free Harley’s partner, Poison Ivy. Comprised of four missions, Harley will need to utilize not only her bag of tricks, but also her wits, in order to bust her friend out of jail.

While there isn’t a ton of footage to go off of here, it’s nice to get »

The Justice League movie that never was

29 May 2015 4:59 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mad Max's George Miller was agonisingly close to bringing Justice League to the screen. Here's why it didn't happen...

With Mad Max: Fury Road currently melting minds at multiplexes worldwide, it seems like the right time to remind everyone that the film's director, George Miller, was once set to helm a Justice League movie back around 2008. The project was known as Justice League: Mortal and it was far more than an unproduced script. A full cast was in place, sets and costumes were in production from Weta Workshop, and filming was all set to begin in Australia before things got...complicated.

It's a shame, too. Based on the script I read, Justice League: Mortal would have been a fairly impressive, very recognisable representation of DC's flagship super team. It also would have beaten The Avengers to the big screen by at least a couple of years.

Batman: Arkham Knight - new seven-minute gameplay trailer

29 May 2015 1:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Poison Ivy and the new Batmobile feature in the seven-minute gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight...

Rocksteady's aiming to go out on a high with Batman: Arkham Knight, purportedly the final entry in its acclaimed Gotham-set action series. Having gradually moved away from the confines of Arkham Asylum, the games have gradually increased in scope and bombast, and you can see the scale of the latest entry's open world in the new gameplay trailer below.

One of the most hyped aspects of Arkham Knight is the ability to actually control the Batmobile for the first time, and you can get an idea of what that looks like here, as Batman takes a captured Poison Ivy for a ride to the Gotham City Police Department.

It all looks fast and fluid, with the tank-like Batmobile engaging in explosive gunfights with enemy vehicles; when it's moving at full lick, the driving mechanics »

Batman: Arkham Knight New Trailers – Why Poison Ivy Is Helping Batman

28 May 2015 7:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rocksteady

It seems that with the release of Arkham Knight being only three and a half weeks away, both Rocksteady and Warner Bros. are rounding the bend onto the home stretch, their final sprint to the finish being comprised of multiple fancy new trailers for all those in attendance.

First up there’s another gameplay mission that, although it doesn’t show anything knew, focusses entirely on Bruce’s efforts to free Poison Ivy from the clutches of Scarecrow. Whereby in past trailers we’d see Batman talking to Ivy as the latter doles out what Scarecrow’s plan to destroy Gotham are, now we know her threadbare allegiance comes from Batman saving her in the first place.

 

As you can see it doesn’t stop her playful nature attempting to kill or restrain Batman one last time anyway – such is the mentality of an inmate from Arkham Asylum – but »

Harley Quinn co-creator Bruce Timm approves of her Suicide Squad look

5 May 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Late on Sunday, Suicide Squad director David Ayer tweeted out the first image of Task Force X in full costume, giving us our first look at Deadshot, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, El Diablo, Slipknot, Rick Flagg, Enchantress, Katana and, of course Harley Quinn.

While the photo itself has received a predictable mixed reaction, fans have been happy about Margot Robbie’s look as Harley. But, what does the character’s co-creator, Bruce Timm, think of her? io9 decided to find out.

Timm – who introduced the character in Batman: The Animated Series with the help of Paul Dini – saw the pic at the same time we did, and gives it his stamp of approval:

“I just saw the pic like a couple of hours ago. It was interesting. I was frankly a little nervous about what Harley would look like, but I thought she looked really cool. So I’m optimistic, »

Gotham Season 1 Episode 18 Review – ‘Everyone has a Cobblepot’

4 May 2015 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the eighteenth episode of Gotham

This was to be my grand gesture. A return to form and way back from literary oblivion. Gotham was the weapon of choice, episode eighteen and nineteen the literary armour I chose to swathe myself in. Prepared for battle and cloaked in metaphorical attire I would advance with one intention. To meter out critical justice and in the process earn my redemption. However it offered up more moments of frustration than reward, more occasions of deflation than exultation. In short I began to side, in spite of myself, with those internet detractors and naysayers who would prefer it never existed.

Screened over a month ago ‘Everyone has a Cobblepot’ gave us over the duration of its running time something new; a villain worthy of the title. No more half arsed psychotics who made up for threat with theatrics. By casting Colm Feore »
