Hey folks!

My pupils are dilated, my heart rate is increased, I'm having rushes of goosebumps across my scalp and down my body, my palms are somewhat clammy and I'm experiencing an intense feeling of euphoria..... what could it be? THAT'S RIGHT! It's competition time again!

http://e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w00t.gif

I have got 5, that's five, cinco, cinq, fünf, viisi (Drazar will get that one), 다섯, one two three four FIVE awesome limited edition signed Batman: Arkham Asylum posters to give away. Brap brap hold tight the Batman forum maaassssiiiiiiif!

Due to popular demand, only people with fifty posts or more at the time of competition completion (at 1600GMT on Monday 17th August) are eligible to win. If you haven't got fifty posts when the comp closes then you can't win. Don't go and spam either or I'll set SammiiDoogles on you. (I've done this to reward the senior members here, but don't worry I'll do another comp open to everyone straight after this one).

These aren't just any posters. They're designed by the magic workers at Rocksteady and are (very) limited edition. If you like Batman, computer games, or you just like life you need one of these!

They're so good that I got the very lovely Roxy ( http://e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/horny2.gif ) from UK marketing to model one for us http://e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/hump.gif

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning one of these exclusive prizes is:



Guess how many polygons make up Batman's Grapnel Gun in the game.

Here's an image (grabbed from tomorrow's EPIC gadgets trailer, you heard it here first) so you can count :nut:

Strictly one guess per person.
You must have 50 posts at the time of competition closing to be eligible to win.

Judges decision is final.
This thread is for guesses only, don't clutter it with chat, any questions send me a PM. No post editing.
This competition closes Monday 17th 1600 GMT.

EDIT: I had a "Hunter moment" there....I forgot that not only was my post on the last page, but it tells you if you have posted in the thread or not....

Thanks to everyone that took part!

It is with a cheap photograph grabbed from a half arsed Google Image Search that I present to you, the esteemed and cherished members of the Official Batman: Arkham Asylum forum, the winners of the five awesome Rocksteady signed posters!

The correct answer iiiiiis: 2,049

And the five closest guesses were... in no particular order......

Could the lucky winners all drop me a PM with their names and address and then in return they can expect the post man knocking on their door with a large poster tube in the next few days.

For everyone else - thanks again for taking part. To keep the excitement going, I'll run another competition this week!
