This is such a amazing sight! Batman: Arkham City is a great name! I'm especially looking forward to this issue and the game! A really top-notch exclusive Gameinformer!
it is two face! good eyes i didnt catch that
***, it just moved a little.
Oh my freakin' WoW
You guys blow me away in cover design; once again, I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!
Yes very excited!!! an awesome cover for one of most anticipated games for next year
Sweet! I hate waiting for my issue to come!! Especially when it is a game i really care about on the cover!!
I love the art style.
Awesome cover art. Especially the first one.
On a related note, blood on Batman's arm? maybe they're going for a "mature" rating this time around.
Thats definitely one of the best covers I've ever seen on the magazine.
Man GI you guys have some awesome covers!!!!!!! This game is gonna be great!
I really want that first cover. It just screams awesomeness.
amazing cover i loved arkham asylum cant wait to get the sequel in the city woot batman rocks
Awesome, can't wait!!!!!
Now that it will be in gotham fingers crossed for dark tomorrow rooftop travel!!!
But in all seriousness I wouldn't like co-op for the main story. Maybe for challenge rooms or something but Batman has always been about him fighting himself and his past ghosts to uphold a sense of heroism and I think co-op in the story mode would take away from that.
It's awesome that the cover is (even if unintentionally) very simlar to Mark Millar's comic Nemesis. And Nemesis its self is the story of a super hero much like Batman becoming the joker.
The new style for the covers is really starting to pay off. You can really see and enjoy the amount of detail, as well as get a sense of these games by just looking at the covers. I would have never guessed a cover of batman covered in white could look so cool!
YEAH THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT! Now say it has Nightwing and it will be perfect
yes I'm so pumped for this. One of the best cover arts so far, only second to halo reach.
