Notice also his batarmor is damaged, isnt this what the developers hinted? the closer the end you get the more damaged the suit gets.

No, i mean when you progress throuth the game the suit gets more damaged looking naturally, lets say slightly each time you deal with a boss for example.

Yeah, Batman's suit slowly begins to get beaten up and start deteriorating as the game progresses

Nahh, Tbh, joker is my favourite character, but i think just having batman makes him seem more ominous and powerful, and it shows he is alone in his mission.

I Think having joker in the boxart would've just killed the whole vibe.
i Couldnt think of a better boxart for this game :thumb:
Looks Brilliant :)

Joker in my opinion is the best villain of all-time. Thats why I AM HOPING that theres a Limited Edition one with the Joker on it and throw in some small batarang key chains or what not with the LE:nut:

The key chain is also good maybe they can use small batman figuers.

Actually i have read an interview that basicly said that the suit will get damaged depending on how you play the game in the sense that while you are playing the suit will get damage for instance if you are gliding towards an enimy and shoots at you your cape can take damage and will have holes and such as well the more your cape gets shot up it will afect your gliding abilitys in the game

That seems like it would be hard to pull off, but if your right that is awsome.

Getting off topic here.

The background looks great, but the pose of batman could have been better. I was expecting more cape and cloak action (him gliding off the building, looking like a bat with both arms holding the cape, etc.)

I think what makes me not like the pic is that he is really looking down showing the ears really high and they are near the back of his skull.

Other views of him in the trailer and screenshots look better.

Other than that it is awesome

Holy Crap! Batman's in this game. Now it's going to be even better.

Seriously though, great work on the cover. The only thing is that since theyre making this game soo good and have released videos, pictures and info on it already is the question of: Do we even need that high quality of a cover if everybody's already got it reserved anyway? Plus the gamestores have probably got their shipment of stand-up ads and posters to which the workers have probably stolen half of for their guilty pleasure and then the long lines outside of the stores, if that doesn't accidently bring the highschool fraternity and college partiers and busy workers in, what hope will the cover have?

Absolutely awesome I can't wait to get my hands on hold this game! and the beauty of this game is on XBOX 360 it says XBOX LIVE in the upper right hand corner which means DLC baby WOOOOOOOO!

I've been trolling this forum for quite a while now and finally decided to start posting here :)

I really like this cover! It's smart and it looks sweet! I like how you've got batman standing on Arkham Island but then in the background you can see Gotham city and the sea separating them.

The PS3 cover is absolutly perfect because it is all black, which fits Batman super well, sorry Xbox, but your cover just made Batman look like a pansy with its bright green!!!! Ha ha JK lol!!!:D

This is how I wish everyone would think :) I'm glad that there is a lot of time spent on this game, I mean look at valve and how infrequently they bring out new games. The problem is that it means episode 3 is going to have to be outstanding :P

not sure if this is fan art or real
i google searched Batman Arkham Asylum and this is what came up

Well surely that's completely wrong since it supposedly has a T rating or 16+ and it says it has co-op 2 player and online multiplayer 2-8.

+ It says "only on xbox 360" which it never was from the beginning :P someone must be skilled with their photoshop or something

i found the same image on another site and its a fansite that has people submit their own custom box art.

sorry for the screw up guys and gals :flowers:

I went into EB Games at my Harford Mall about 15 minutes ago and they had a bunch of empty "Coming Soon" cases for the game hanging up along a shelf. The case had just the logo on it and the back was similar to the Official back cover of the game, but just using different picks and scheme. No new info nor new pics were on it. Is it normal to have the "preview" cover different from the "actual" cover?
The fact they already had the preview cover out must mean that it's about 2-3 months away. Needless to say since they had atleast 20 cases on the shelf, I'll try to see if I can buy one from them for a buck or two, just as a placeholder to squeeze and cherish and sleep with at night.
