    They're part of why I feel like the Arkham games would be better if they didn't use Batman. I can't play Batman if I'm running around collecting goddamn statues. Plus he fights like a gymnast.

    Gabe face.

    (Not as a reference to the drawing itself, but I imagine that's a face Gabe really makes - and he's probably the one playing)

    I did this so many times.

    "Dude, chill. I hear you but RIDDLER TROPHY. C'mon, greater good. Jeez. Gothamites, am I right?"

    I'm the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

    Seriously, is this the same game we're thinkng of here? I don't remember gymnast routines involving punching through riot shields and breaking dude's legs.

    Also the comic is pretty great.

    This is a silly post.

    Collecting trophies is completely unnecessary for finishing the game. They're just there as an optional logic/platforming challenge which unlocks a few extra bonuses if you want to go to the trouble. You're free to ignore them. I am a person who is normally irritated by collection challenges added to games to pad them out and bait obsessive completionists and I have no problem with the trophies in AA/AC.

    Plus he fights like a gymnast.

    I have no idea what you're talking about unless for some reason you felt the need to spam evade all the time so he was constantly flipping around.

    Yeah I have yet to get to the part in AC when Batman fights off a village of angry farmers using only a pommel-horse.

    Apparently if you know anything about gymnastics a lot of the stuff the gymkata guy is doing is balls out amazing.

    He raised it from a pup. It's Robin's replacement when he gets too old.

  • kingworkskingworks Registered User regular
    (Spoiler: This post has nothing to do with Batman)

    The Gymkata scene in the village freaked me out when I was a kid.

    When Resident Evil 4 started out in a dilapidated Spanish village with freaky rural people, it really hit all those same buttons.

    This comic reminded me of that scene from The Wire when Bubbles sees the cop car.

    Of course the great Achilles' heal of the style is that you need conspicuously placed pommel horses close by if you were ever to get in a fight.

    In other news, that third panel is awesome, Mike outdid himself.

    My lust for the cracking sound that thug-skulls make exceeds my desire for Riddler trophies.

    Oh, who am I kidding? Is that a green glow...? Later, citizen. Good luck and all that.

    Batman is the dumbest superhero anyway. What is his super power, he's rich? So basically he's just as good a superhero as Charles Koch or George Soros - wow gratz! You know who else was rich, Hitler that's who.

  • jackaljackal Registered User regular
    An Elseworlds comic where Bruce is poor would be pretty awesome. He'd be kicking all types of ass in a beat up sedan spray painted black.

    I have to put the game on mute whenever i work on the VR missions.

    "Yes, I know you can see me up here and how much of a coward I am for not coming down there, but damnit STFU and let me retry this mission in peace. And I don't need a dramatic music crescendo for the 12th time i've grapneled to the red bat symbol"

    Man.

    Police here do suck, quick to incite violence and shoot people whenever they get a chance.

    But the people protesting? 5% are people who give a shit about the cause. 95% are dudes who wanna fight police.

    And miles to go before I sleep.

    I tend to dislike that sorta thing in most games too, but in Arkham City it's actually pretty damn addicting. Frequently, when I see a green question mark, I'll put everything else on hold just to solve a puzzle and get that trophy. Might be partly because I hope that at the end of it all I'll get to kick Riddler's ass. Anyway, I really think it's a huge improvement over the Riddler challenges in the first game.

    Long time lurker, sure to get nailed to the X, but hey: Pay me, I will proof read the links on the blog posts. You know, just make sure they actually point to TODAYS comic and not yesterdays or you know, back to the same page. Just sayin.
