    Contacted GMG about the possibility of canceling the PC pre-order; I'm basically waiting until the last possible minute to determine whether I'll be getting it on console or not.

    Also, have any comparisons been reported yet between the PS3 and 360 versions? I've heard mixed results on which version of AA was the better between the two. I originally read PS3, but some people are reporting 360.

    As for another confirmation, has it been confirmed/denied if Scarecrow will return? I replayed the first encounter on PC last night, and his encounters are still the best moments of that game.

    I would love a reappearance, especially if it happened literally out of nowhere like his later ones in AA (screen of death).

    Yes, they're the best encounters of the game...if you like sudden detours into tedious, mediocre platforming.

    It is a bold-faced lie

    was amazing. Like, Konami should hire Rocksteady to make the next Silent Hill or something.

    I really do hope that with all the constant updates and confirmations with AC, they're keeping Scarecrow's involvement completely tight-lipped. I want to randomly walk into an alleyway with no build-up whatsoever only to have some out of nowhere nightmare sequence occur.

    The revamped Scarecrow from TAS (2nd generation, or whatever the fan term is for the season featuring Kid Robin) was still the absolute best:



    Sigh, making myself sad again there's no Timm/Dini Batman series on TV. Why won't Adult Swim or someone just pony up so we can have weekly episodes instead of annual movies?

    The saddest thing about AC is that we probably won't get to hear angry posts about how the game totally keeps hardlocking and resetting at a certain point and that they hate this stupid buggy piece of crap game. Those were my favorite posts.

    I do have good news for you! in 2013, Cartoon Network will show Beware the Batman, which will give us all the crappily-designed CGI, random Japanese chick not-Robin and gun-toting Alfred we've been demanding!

    I read about this a week ago, I think. They're trying to focus on lesser-known villains. And Batman looks like he's anorexic.

    Yes, I was aware of that.

    The Captain America sandwich joke keeps ringing in my head every time I see that Anorexic Bats pic. Mother of fuck, why does DC keep not using Timmverse for their series? Did they piss off DC in some way?

    Seriously, I am so unnerved by this.

    Every day I keep praying that we get an actual animated Batman series with a TV 14 rating or something, where we can look forward to awesome stuff like this every week:



    Why? Why won't this happen? You want to make a Batman for kids, fine! Go ahead! But give us adults something to chew on too! The movies are great but they're too far spread out. I want a series with a season-long crime arc.

    Dammit. :(

    Spoiler:

    I can't see it being too much of an issue on the PC though. I reckon most people will see past it but then I already experienced it before so maybe I'm reading it all wrong.

    That's Professor Pyg, a creation of Grant Morrison's who's generally indistinguishable from the Mad Hatter (right down to the mind control and literary-talk) other than the fact that he's fat and more disgusting. As in, his victims get masks permanently bonded to them that can't be removed, even with surgery.

    There's really no way they can adapt him to a kid-friendly show without turning him into something from the 60s series.

    The Brave and the Bold is fantastic

    I wonder what it's like to be dead inside

    But you know what? Alfred with guns? That doesn't sound completely terrible. Everything else about that picture does though

    Oh my lord, yes. Plastic Man, essentially turning Aquaman into The Tick, a musical episode with Neil Patrick Harris, etc. And this is how they chose to end the series (the thing CrappyJack posted was the unrelated intro to this):
    When Bat-Mite has grown weary of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, deeming its formula to be tired and repetitive, he concocts a scheme to make it so bad that the network will have to cancel the show to make way for a darker one. Can Ambush Bug thwart his plan before it's too late?

    Yet somehow Batman retains his integrity through out all the goofy weirdness. Good stuff.

    Seems right in line with Cartoon Network's current policy-- FUCK ACTUAL CARTOONS / MORE CGI BULLSHIT AND KIDDIE REALITY SHOWS

    I'd heard that they were actually going to leave Scarecrow out entirely from "Arkham City"-- a bit odd, sure, but better than just trying to top/recapture what was already the peak of the first game for a lot of us.

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/113114-Rumor-Scarecrow-Wont-Be-Terrorizing-Arkham-City

    (On the subject of other Rocksteady-Batman games, I kind of feel like they should stop here. The game itself will determine just how much mileage could actually be gotten out of it, but it seems like they're going big and going out that way. Batman Beyond would be a pretty slick setting though...)

    Because it wouldn't be awesome with Tartakovsky attached

    Goddamn I hate that man's art style. I'd rather see Stephen Silver

    OPINION

    EDIT: Whoa, Tartakovsky did animation work on Korgoth of Barbaria? Despite only being one episode, that show was fantastic. The animation wasn't great though! I just don't think his style is a great fit for Batman.

    Then, good sir, we shall be beholden to disagree.

    Honestly, I'd just take old episodes of TAS overdubbed with new dialog. ANYTHING.

    No offense to Tartakovsky, it's just that Weisman fits better. I guess Young Justice would be the closest end result of that.

    YJ happens to be quite good, so I'd certainly like more shows like that.

    For those wanting great animated Batman, I'm pretty sure Year One comes out this month. I caught the screening at Comic-Con and I think it may be the best animated batman film (not gonna compare it to the series) I've seen. Maybe a step behind Phantasm, I'll have to rewatch it when it comes out but I was completely blown away at the time (think way darker than the previous Direct to DVD films, also pretty faithful).

    Also yes, I'd like to see the 90s series on a station other than the weird disney cartoon channel that I don't get
