Press releases are important, screenshots are nice and trailers are exciting but uncut gameplay footage is where it’s really at. The crème de la crème of pre-release content.
In anticipation of Batman’s return to the PS3 Rocksteady Games has supplied a hearty chunk of uncut gameplay footage to tide Dark Knight fans over until the time comes for Arkham City’s release. Go on take a look and validate your excitement.
In Batman: Arkham Asylum the Riddler constantly mocked the Dark Knight as he solved all of the riddles hidden in and around the confined prison. In Arkham City, however, Edward Nigma will be coming out from the shadows and play a more pronounced role in the game.
First, we’ll get to the details fans have by dying to know; Batman: Arkham City will be released on October 18th in North America and three days later on October 21st in Europe. We’ll give you a moment to go ahead and get your pre-orders in. Good?
James Gallagher of the EU PlayStation.Blog had the opportunity to see an early mission from Arkham City and kindly shares with some things we can expect in the follow up to the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum. Don’t worry, there are no spoilers.
As if to remind us that there is also a new video game on horizon to go along with all the news regarding Christopher Nolan’s next film, Warner Bros. have released four new screenshots giving us a deeper look at the environments and villains that gamers will encounter in Batman: Arkham City.
Arkham City marks the introduction of Two Face as he was one of the few villains not included in the original. The coin-flipping, duality enthusiast will be sure to wreck shop in Gotham later this year (hopefully) but until then get a good, long look at his ugly mug as well as Harley Quinn’s alternatively gorgeous visage.
Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.
In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.
So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?
It’s been a month of drinking, eating, and spending time with loved ones, and a month for announcements – big announcements. The following games were unveiled: Uncharted 3, The Elder Scrolls V, Mass Effect 3, SSX Deadly Descents, and a new Tomb Raider; it is a very impressive list. We also learned more about some of 2011’s most exciting games: Homefront, DiRT 3, L.A. Noire, Batman: Arkham City, Resistance 3 and Bulletstorm.
There weren’t many new releases, but the Vietnam expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was a highlight. We also got some demos – and yes, a demo can be a highlight, but only just. Here is the re-cap of the month…
In the VGA trailer for Arkham City, Batman gives a group of enemies an epic beatdown.
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed sixty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.
Holy awesome screenshots, Batman!
The sequel to one of 2009′s greatest games Batman: Askham Asylum was announced with a massively unoriginal name by simply sticking the number 2 at the end. This was especially strange considering the second game could no longer be based in Arkham Asylum.
So Warner Brothers have gone back to the drawing board and come up with a brand new name: Batman: Arkham City.

The UK’s position as a world-leading developer of video games is under threat. For years it has been the third largest employer of development staff in the world, with the USA and Japan in first and second position, but recent times have seen the UK overtaken by the Canadian games industry.
It’s common knowledge that movie tie-ins come under much more scrutiny and criticism than any other type of game. Most would argue (perhaps justifiably) that this is thoroughly deserved, and that they can never replace such blockbuster titles as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and God of War III. On this front I would have to agree, but why exactly is this the case?
Welcome to the second edition of PS3 Attitude’s ‘Deals of the Week’ segment. Every Friday we deliver the best deals on PlayStation 3 games that we have discovered across the World Wide Web.
Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum beat off strong competition from Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves to win the best game category at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards. Rocksteady’s portrayal of the Caped Crusader also took the award for best gameplay. Isn’t this award just further proof that Arkham Asylum is not only the best Batman game, but also the best ever superhero game?
Batman: Arkham Asylum will be getting the Game of the Year treatment, available March 26th, 2010 across European and PAL territories. What makes this edition so special is the inclusion of six new challenge maps along with the option of playing in 3D.
Now we know you’re probably wondering why you would want this feature when you don’t even have a 3D capable TV or even the glasses. Well, you’re in luck…
The shortlist for the BAFTA GAME Award 2009 has just been announced, and you can now vote for your favourite! This is the only award at the British Academy Video Game Awards which is voted for by the public, so it’s fitting that it’s also the most prestigious.
Some great games have been nominated, including seven titles on the PlayStation 3, one of which is exclusive (bet you can’t guess which one).
Batman: Arkham Asylum has had some decent downloadable content since the game’s release last August.
So if you have yet to buy this fantastic game, we have another reason for you to give it another look.
Here’s one that might take you by surprise.
When the votes were cast for this year’s Most Wanted Games of 2010, there were a few titles that were tossed around that many of us probably wouldn’t have even dreamed mentioning a few months ago.
During this long and arduous process, over thirty games garnered nominations, but when the dust settled and the arguing stopped, no other game received more knowing nods among the staff here at PS3 Attitude for making a surprise appearance on this list than Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 (though it’s unlikely to retain such a title).
