Can't remember the last game eidos did that wasn't PURE GASH. This unfortunately will be as well.

 

A decent batman would be fucking awesome tho. But its just to cash in on the justified jizz fest for the dark knight. Obviously.

Paul Dini is the guy that wrote a lot of the very awesome Batman cartoon(not the new one the old school cool one with Mark hamil as the voice of the Joker)

it will be pretty hard to make a mess of a Batman story that he has written especially when this sounds very much like the graphic novel from a few years ago.

 

Eidos has whacked out some gash games but Farcry on the p/c, and assasins creed were both very good and well worth playing

Eidos don't develop games, and this isn't based on the movie.  The movie game though, that IS based on the movie.

 

Yeah i know...its still an "eidos game" tho technically....and regardless of what the subject matter...a batman game at this moment in time is to cash in on the mega high popularity of the dude thanks to the dark knight.

Technically, Eidos are the publisher.  So there's no such thing as an 'Eidos' game.

 

Ultimately, too, all games are made to cash in somehow.  That's why we have to pay for them (usually).

;D ;D both fairs points. Maybe its just me who refers to games by publisher haha...

 

Sometimes they're one and the same though, and often certain developers will affiliate themselves with a publisher for a long time.

 

Eidos just seem to publish stuff from whoever these days, though.

Don't like that joker - looks too much like the new movie one, which was a trap that some artists fell into after the '89 movie.  Want to go with a classic Bolland or Adams look.

 

 

 

 

 

That's strange, as he's very much based on the comic vision of Joker as far as I can see.

 

It's the mouth.  Never seen The Joker depicted like he's taken make-up tips from Amy Winehouse and put lippy on up to his ears.

Looks like Killing Joke sort of Joker to me.  But hey, I've seen more of the game than most.

The Joker has always been a mutated freak in the comics, with bleached skin with a wide smiling mouth.  Here he looks like he's had an episode with the foundation and lippy when he can't find a mirror.

Looks more like he's been taking lippy application tips from the Crow

The problem, if you like, is the need to see his 'smile' from distances that are further away than that screenshot.  So it is probably exaggerated for that reason.
