Batman: Arkham Asylum
Arkham Asylum Trailer & Screens
Written By
View author's profile

Rocksteady and Eidos today released a ton of assets for their upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum adventure title and damn is it looking hot! The 11 new screens and trailer featuring the Joker, voiced by Mark Hamill, sets the plot for the title whilst showing off its intense mood and atmosphere.

I'm desperately trying to resist building my hopes up for this title with all its shiny and detailed textures because we all know how building hopes up is nothing but bad. But dammit, my will power isn't that strong. I'm slowly  ... losing ... the ... power ... to ... resist.

Check out the Batman: Arkham Asylum gallery here.

Looks insanely good. May not completely live up to everybody's high hopes for it, but I really do believe it'll be a very good game.

There's an error in the newspost. It says that The Joker is voiced by Kevin Conroy, who is actually the voice of Batman. It is Mark Hamill who voices The Joker.

this is looking nicer and nicer. We can hope this will be the first really good superhero game out... spidey has come close a few times but always been let down by something or another.

Mr Webb i know it is hard to resist. Me being a huge batman fan doesnt want this game to be ruined. Nor do I wanna get my hopes up but seeing what has been shown it damn near impossible. The game looks beautiful and I for one can not wait!!!

Nothing against Mr. Hamill, but seeing the Joker and hearing anyone but Heath Ledger voicing him just doesn't seem right anymore.

Although Heath Ledger gave a legendary performance and a mad-awesome edge to The Joker.

Nothing compares to Mark Hamill's voicing, he makes him seem so clearly insane yet very smart.

Heath's was more just batshit crazy. No Pun intended.

Game looks incredible, I hope it lives up to it :D

Din't Mark Hamil play luke skywalker. His voice is too pussy, you all seen that joker impression on youtube. His name begins with a C. He's almost identical to Heath Ledger.

Does this game only take place in the Asylum? If so, won't that make for a really short game.

The first 360 Batman title IN HOW LONG???? (Not counting the DC vs. Kombat, which I don't really think counts much) You bet I'll be keeping an eye on this one ...

Mark Hammils voicing of the joker is awesome. Anyone who think's Ledger's voicing for joker would be better is clearly on crack and or never watched the animated series.

I honestly cannot believe how good it looks.

This is insane, I had no idea.

Go figure it'll be bland, boring, and stiff.
