So cool. While I figured Catwoman would make it in, It's nice knowing for sure. Great cover guys!
One of the best covers yet nice job.
thats a really cool cover i wish i had the money att the time to buy arkam aslum but i hav sinced move on to bigger games.....maybe now ill
pick it up
Awesome, Can't wait. Im Thinkin bout pickin up Arkham Asylum again to refresh me up on the story
yeah, thats definitely one of the best covers i have seen..
Is it just me, or is two-face dressed as uncle sam in the background?
This will be awesome! Now that its in Gotham and not in the Asylum there should be alot more roaming that you can do. Hopefully it will be like a Spiderman game where there are still always more bad guys to catch. It seemed like at the end of Batman Arkham Aslyum there was no one else to fight.
Do I smell Co-op?
I have not had time to even play the first one yet!! *** I better get off my ass and start catching up
WOO!!!! That cover just says: "I'm Batmann and I can kick your ***"
Awesome. But I do hope they don't go overboard with the blood in this game. I would hate to see the Batman franchise turn into a gore fest.
The covers just keep getting better and better.
rofl reach woot 1337 omg m45+3r ch13f haloz haloz haloz
o yeah and theres also batman
Cool cover. I'm still a little angry that you failed to send me the 200th issue, even though I got the ones before and after. All the multiple covers make it even more frustrating for a collector. :/
YES!!! Catwoman!! Can't wait, so excited. Maybe I'm reading too much into this cover, but maybe Batman and Catwoman team up for this? Maybe even adding some co-op options? I would love it if Catwoman has her own missions too.
I love it when Game informer gets exclusives like this.
Wow. Whoever did those covers needs a raise. And a seat on the AIGA board.
