A bloody shitting fucking cunting shark! Just outta the icy blue! God, there's little else that can scare me more than a damned shark. And of all the games, Arkham City is pretty low on the list for me to predict there's going to be one leaping at me through a pool of ice. It makes sense and all, given that I'm currently matching wits or whatever with The Penguin, but still...
Arkham City is now possibly one of the scariest games that I can recall playing in recent memory >_>'
In other news, this game's great. Currently playing through the GOTY edition, and while I have already played through Arkham Aslyum, there's just something about City that I prefer. It's probably the actual Arkham City itself and how I always love to spend the first few hours of such games just going around exploring, and in this case trying to scavenge as many of those Riddler trophies as possible.
I really enjoy listening to all of the dialogue you hear between the different gang of thugs too; it's especially interesting to hear how much they hate all of this. They're a bunch of lowlife scumbags, but listening to them moan and sometimes cower in fear from the other gangs, if not from the cold or a lack of food makes them appear that little bit more human than I would have expected.
Also, I gotta admit, I'm not really feeling Nolan North as The Penguin. His accent is mostly fine, but there's just something about the coarseness of his voice that just sounds off for some reason. Troy Baker done a surprisingly effective job as Two-Face, though. Does he actually show up again BTW? I imagine he's being saved for more of Catwoman's segments. Oh, and I hafta agree with Jeff, Catwoman isn't an exceptionally interesting character to play as and she's mostly just Batman but with fewer options. Her dialogue is awful at that, so not a fan.
Anywhoo, sharks still freak me out. Fin.
