Force/Arkham trailers

12.14.2009

Alright, more stuff from Spike's VGAs. These two trailers are for actual games rather than movies based on games, but they’re far more interesting than the PRINCE OF PERSIA spot from a bit ago. They’re anticapted sequels to two excellent games, games that in my opinion should most definitely be turned into movies at some point.

First up we have a teaser trailer for ARKHAM ASYLUM II, which seems a bit premature. It doesn’t show much, except the streets of Gotham in chaos under rule of the Joker, but the tagline “Arkham has moved” makes me a bit curious.

Next we have THE FORCE UNLEASHED II, a sequel to a game that I thought was much better written than the entire new trilogy. It’s like “Shadows of the Empire” for a new generation. The gameplay was the aspect that was a bit lacking for me, but hopefully those issues will be worked out in the new game.

The trailer showcases an arena fight between Starkiller and a giant Rancor-eating space gorilla, and he now has two BLUE lightsabers. Read into that how you will.

Extra Tidbit: How come the Force is so limited in the movies whereas Starkiller can do all sorts of badass stuff with it? I don't understand the self-imposed restriction there.

Arkham

The story in Arkham Asylum 2 is based on the comic series No Mans Land, in which Gotham is under chaos because Arkham has been destroyed and all the villains are loose. Arkham is eventually moved to a newer high security building, hence the tagline "Arkham has moved".

Ah, and I love that Arkham makes Bats look like an unstoppable force of nature.

It's like a mix of Nolan's serius grit and Burton's gothy exaggeration...I love Nolan but he is so realistic that a man dressed as a bat and wearing a cape looks silly if you think about it.

Gotham has never looked better

And its denizens too, this creepy toony look is so much more fitting to Batman than even Nolan's take. They really should make a film that looks like this.

I wish...

They could make a game like Force Unleashed with the custom character storyline of Old Republic. I really missed wielding the dual-sided lightsaber.

Re: Sneeky fox

I liked Harleys look from BAS, but I think the costume they use in this game is HOTT!! Can't wait for the game.

Starkiller has an unnatural link to the Force, and is considered stronger than Anakin Skywalker in many respects.

Both trailers look awesome. 2010 is looking to be a great year for games, with Mass Effect 2 in late January!

Arkham 2 Villains...

[link] is the teaser site, and shows a poster of a Uncle Sam in a very TwoFace-esq suit. The poster is also shown in the trailer, as is the Iceberg lounge (The Penguins) hideout, so they could both make appearances.
