New Arkham City behind the scenes vid talks sound design


5:00 PM on 05.16.2012



Rocksteady did absolutely everything right in Batman: Arkham City. This includes the stellar sound design; punching thugs makes a satisfying thud, bones make an earth-shattering crack, and even Batman's cape itself has a cast of sounds. John Roesch was the Foley Artist that made it all happen in Arkham City. He also made it happen for The Dark Knight, The Matrix, Inception, and many other huge projects. Basically, he knows his sh*t.

This video shows off how Roesch made the effects. For example, to make the sound when punching Mr. Freeze, Roesch put a snowboarding boot inside a motorcycle helmet and hit with a hammer. This is exactly why I wanted to be a sound engineer at one point. Oh, there's also some stuff about recording gun sounds, but that's a snooze fest. Hitting things with hammers is always more thrilling.

By the way, if you haven't picked up Arkham City yet, you can the Game of the Year Edition releases on May 29th. That's my birthday, and if you don't play Arkham City it'll make me sad on my birthday. No one wants that.

Final Fantasy director Tetsuya Nomura crafts an interesting take on Catwoman that looks like a Metal Gear villain

A few months ago we saw the Batman Play Arts Kai figure crafted by Final Fantasy character designer/director Tetsuya Nomura. Well he's at it again, and this time he crafted a new Catwoman figure. All in all she looks like a mixture of Jehuty from Zone of the Enders, a boss from a Metal Gear Solid game, and the Alien from Alien. I guess it's better than being half man, half bear, half pig.more
