With Batman Arkham City coming out yesterday (uk) and the 18th of October (usa) and with me finishing it yesterday i throught it would be cool to open a batman thread so go ahead and say anything you want about batman you can talk about the games comics movies anything batman you can even make reviews of it ill start

Review of Batman Arkham Asylum

Story - The Joker breaks out of arkham and lets Batman capture him and bring him back but as Batman thinks it was too easy and thinks Joker is up to something he is proven Right as Joker takes control of arkham and kills many guards unleashes all of the inmates with the help of Harley Quinn and the inmates being killer choc Scarecrow and more of the villians from batmans past and with the pain of the riddler who makes batman solve all his riddles..its gonna be one big night for the dark knight

Gameplay - just belive me this is one of the best comic book games and it feels like you really are the dark knight as you fight,do puzzles and solve riddles it is really good gameplay

Overall - it is one of the best batman games if not one of the best comic book games made and if you can i would say ether get it along with the sequel Arkham City or if you can find it just get it so Batman Arkham Asylum gets a 9.0

  • There’s just one little problem: Conroy is fuck ugly. Bruce Wayne should be handsome, suave and charming. Conroy, if he was to play Batman in real life, would only be two out of three. As Batman, however, you need to be intimidating, strong physically as well mentally, a damn good martial artist, and good with an arsenal of a sorts of bat-stuff. Could he pull that off? Probably not.

    It is a shame. But here's the thing. Keaton and Conroy had the right idea with their Batman voices. Drop it a couple of octaves. Go deeper. You don't have to sound like you chainsmoked 1000 Malboros to sound intimidating. I don't know if it was Bale's choice and they just rolled with it or if it was Nolan's thing.

  • He says in an interview that:

    The Dark Knight will Bale's second time playing Batman, but the first go-around was no walk in the park. He said the hardest thing about getting into character was getting the voice down. Batman is known to have a signature scruffy voice, and that was a huge challenge for Bale.

    He says, "On the first film, it took me a while to really get accustomed to the voice but it's like riding a bike. For the second one, I could just switch on and off any time."

  • I think that fighting is not the only thing that makes a good Batman. Yes fighting must be part of Batman but the way some people are making it sound just because someone as Batman is crap at fighting does not mean he is crap as Batman. He needs to sound as ShadowKnight explained, intimidating. Bale attempts to sound intimidating but thats the difference between Bale,Keaton, and Conroy. Bale felt he had to make some voice extremely hard to notice against Wayne's voice but instead of coming off as intimidating it came off as laughable while Conroy & Keaton knew they didn't have to change the voice that much. It made it deeper and darker not making the voice sound like Batman has a cold but making it sound intimidating.

    Now back to the point of Batman fighting. I didn't think Keaton was that bad in fighting in Batman 1989. Adam West has an excuse for the laughable fighting. It was in the 60's where superheroes were campy and light and even The Dark Knight was campy as you can see by going pages back into the thread and seeing the funny panels people posted from the old Batman comics. Anyway if the comic is campy then of course the tv series will be campy.

    But still Batman is not all about fighting, he is called the world's greatest detective in the comics for a reason. He has to be smart, he has to figure out things. That's how he lasts in fights against Superman in Dark Knight Returns or if you want even more, How he managed to figure out plans for taking down all of the members of the Justice League incase they turned evil in Justice League Doom and the novel that movie was based on Justice League Tower of Babel. But again as everyone knows. Kevin Conroy is Batman.

    Beware the Batman is not on in the UK yet so i have no idea what its like. I guess it & Teen Titans Go! will come on in the same time if I had to guess.

  • You’ve forgotten the detective work behind it all.

  • That's what I was basically saying. He had to use his detective skills to find out the weaknesses of the Justice League etc but he needs to have good detective skills as well.

  • Sorry, didn’t read the whole thing.

    "Scruffy voice"? Really? None of the Batmans had that kind of voice.

  • @Shadowknight1 said: C. Superman becomes the target of a smear campaign by Metropolis's biggest businessman, Lex Luthor, who points out that Superman has killed before and since no weapon on Earth can harm him, there is nothing to prevent him from doing it again. Superman must come to terms with the responsibilities placed on him while fending off unknown assailants who utilize stolen Kryptonian weaponry before facing off with Lex Luthor himself in a powered armor suit.

    What if they did C, but with Batman instead of Lex Luthor? It probably couldn't fit into the Dark Knight universe as we left it, but if we assume that there have been at least a couple of years of Batman (or new-Batman) establishing the Batman-does-not-kill rule in the public consiousness, there could be an interesting contrast between the characters at this point, from which this strange violent Superman could learn some lessons that will make him a better hero

  • When did this become a Superman thread?
