    I've resisted the urge to put ***official*** in the thread title, which is only going to lead to it's failure :(

    Is this the football game?

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    I prefer this thread, it doesn't have ***OFFICIAL OFFICIAL LOOK AT ME*** in the title.

    As do I. "Catch-all" also would have been acceptable.

    not keen on the name, tbh. it smells faintly of some guy in a suit worrying that idiots might not work out its the sequel to the first one, so they have to shove "arkham" in there somewhere.

    gotham city would have been fine.

    Hate the name, hate the release date but who cares more Bats (with some variety on the boss battles please) is just awesome!

    i buy batman comics regularly, and i'd still think it was a bad title if a comic popped up with that name. it also puts them in a bit of a corner, name wise - if a third game came out down the line, would they now have to resort to sticking "arkham" in each title? and throwing in a maximum security prison?

    No, because I don't think that was the decision process.

    This is Batman, not the Lovecraft mythos. Arkham is just the asylum not the city.

    So I'll moan.

    Part 3 will be called Arkham County

    I think we should all just assume and accept that the fact that the word 'Arkham' is in the title is essentially just a coincidence of the story, and all get on with our lives.

    I assumed the title was because the inmates were running free in Gotham and therefore turned the whole city into the asylum itself?

    The only reason for moaning is if Rocksteady were dumb enough to think that Arkham is a city, or that their fanbase wouldn't care if they retconned some shit.

    It's clearly neither of these things.

    Get bent.

    That was my thinking as well. Seems kind of obvious really.

    I think the title is fine. Explains what´s going on in the game with just two words.

    No. You're all wrong. Arkham City is the name for a new prison within Gotham. It's like District 9, but within the city, and for mental people, not aliens.

    Now can we all stop fucking talking about it.

    So it's basically like Escape from New York?

    It's so casual gamers connect this new Batman game with Batman: Arkham Asylum, not say Lego Batman or the games based on Batman the animated series or the movies.

    Anyway back to what matters...

    The GI covers do look very cool, I'm not sure if Catwoman's going to be a co-op character or just one of the main antagonists? I hope there's no co-op or at least it's seperate from the main game. I think Bats is at his best when he's alone against Gotham's villians.

    As long as Catwoman gets sexy, I don't care who she's punching.

    And when I say punching, I mean straddling.
