Our Arkham City Wish List (PC)

Arkham City comes out for the PC on October 18th and we can’t wait to get our hands on it. Arkham Asylum was a masterpiece, and it’s upcoming sequel is looking equally awesome. Now without being too pushy, there are a few things that might make this game even more amazing. So without further ado, here is our Arkham City PC wishlist.

1. Costume Mod Tools

Modders have already found ways to create their own custom Batman costumes in Arkham Asylum. Why not just include the tools to do this in the game? We know the technology exists, we’ve seen it in countless other games. Just give us a damn costume design feature.

2. An Adam West Batman Mod

The next item on our wish list comes from the twitter of Epic Games Director, Cliffy B.
“I wish Batman: Arkham City had an “Adam West” skin I could acquire that would cause fullscreen WHAMs and POWs when in melee combat.”
We agree wholeheartedly Cliff. Some inspired modder out there has to get on this ASAP when the game comes out.

3. The Ability to Change Graphics Settings

Can we pretty please have more than one chance to set our graphics preferences? In Arkham Asylum, the only opportunity to choose graphics settings was the very first time the game started up. After that, players who wanted to tweak something were just out of luck.

4. A Fight with Clayface

So in Arkham Asylum we saw Clayface pacing back and forth in his cell and changing into different people. But at no point did players get to go toe to toe with the shapeshifter. This fight could be epic! He could be disguising himself as Gotham PD and Batman has to figure out which one is Clayface and take him down. It would be like Batman meets Assassin’s Creed.

5. Build your own Batman Gadgets

It might be cool to have a system where we could create improvised Bat devices. For example, I could spray explosive gel on a Batarang to make an explosive Batarang. It would add an extra level of depth to the game and create some really challenging Riddler puzzles.

6. A Swimsuit Costume Mod for Harley Quinn

Yeah, I know I’m sick. What can I say, I like pigtails. I guess it would be good to have some Catwoman costume options as well. Catwoman is actually playable after all. But as for me, I’m mostly interested in Harley.

7. Better Boss Fights

Some of the boss fights in Arkham Asylum were not quite up to snuff. Specifically, I felt like the Killer Croc fight was dissapointing as he went down with just one Batarang each time he popped up. Come on, Rocksteady. You can do better than that.

8. The Goddamn Batman Mod

I’d like to see a mod where every Batman line is replaced with “I’m the Goddamn Batman!” Ok, maybe it doesn’t have to be every line. If the mod just randomly replaced one out of every ten lines with a roaring “I’m the Goddamn Batman!” I think that would satisfy me. Alternately, the mod could replace all batman lines with randomly inserted quotes from the Goddamn Batman twitter.

9. A Multiplayer Mode

If I’ve learned anything in my years as a gamer it’s that multiplayer makes everything better, no matter what. Why just think of all the possibilities for co-operative… I’m just fucking with you. Of course a multiplayer mode would be a horrible idea in this game. Who the fuck wants to be Robin?

10. The Ability to Save Replays

This would probably have to be a feature that comes with the game, I don’t think it would be possible to do this as a mod. Basically if a player set up a really cool series of takedowns they could save it as a replay video. Say I glide kicked an unsuspecting henchman, hit two of his buddies with Batarangs and then detonated some explosive gel on the guys coming in for reinforcements. That might be something I’d want to view again.

2. No, you wanna dance around like a homo do it on your own time

5. No, it wouldn’t add any extra depth. For gods sake it’s a Metroid style game. You explore and collect. It’s not about crafting junk.

6. No, it’s Batman. Not extreme beach volley ball you freak. Go beat off to 16 bit Samus in Super Metroid

7. No, its a Batman universe styled game. Again this is a Metroid kind of game. You want something hard play some NES games just because every little will not shut up about Dark Souls.

8. No, cause Batman doesn’t need to swear every 5 seconds like a raging douche. You wanna listen to swearing that has no point or time/place what the Nostalgia Critic

9. No, rather have a better single player experience then a horrible half functional MP

10. No, every douche on youtube will be making videos with garbage music like Down With The Sickness or Let The Bodies Hit The Floor put over it

Thanks for your input AIDS. However I noticed you clearly you didn’t read 9. It was a joke and if you read 2 sentences in it says “I’m just ing with you.” Also, I’m not sure how an Adam West mod would cause the player to “dance around like a homo.”
Finally on number 10, what do you care if everyone makes music videos of the game? You don’t actually have to watch them.

So what would you actually like to see in the game?

Unfortunately, looks like Rocksteady and Warner Bros. intend to sell you costumes rather than let you make them yourself.

@David Moss: Don’t bother trying to communicate with AIDS. He has never said anything positive on this site, and I doubt he ever will.

No matter what it is, it won’t please him, and if it does, he won’t admit it -_-

And, MOD TOOLS FTW! <–Shame that most games don't have them nowadays. I mean seriously, it's made with Unreal Engine 3 for crying out loud, an extremely moddable engine! But of course, no one would waste money on DLCs when they could get mods instead :(

I swear I think Aids is actually Phil or David or Ron masquerading as Aids because they just want to get a laugh out of pretending to be a complete idiot. I mean there is just no way a real person can be that stupid, that illiterate, that childish. It must be one of the staff or the whole staff just taking turns getting a fun kick pretending to be this fictitious Dr.Stupid, phD.

Joseph, we don’t know who Aids is, but I can assure you that he’s not one of us. This is, after all, the internet, where anyone can present an opinion.

Ron lol I wasn’t seriously accusing Gamefront staff pretending to be this moron. It was more of a statement towards this special kind of stupid because he is just sooooo unbelievably stupid that its hard to believe he can actually be a real organism.
