Big Head Mode in Batman: Arkham City is pretty ridiculous

I tend to think of sports games when it comes to Big Head Mode, but Rocksteady Studios was willing to apply the equally creepy and funny style to Batman: Arkham City. Good on you! All that's required to enable the mode is ho...

Classy Two-Face art for the Batman: Arkham City obsessed

While many of us are more compelled by The Riddler because we must get one-hundred percent completion and can't be helped, you have to give credit to Two-Face as well. We got a decent look at Rocksteady's take on the character already. Now, we have high-resolution art of the grumpy fellow -- and background details, which are slightly creepy. Just slightly. Is it October yet?

After being revealed quite some time ago, The Riddler has finally made his presence known in Arkham City which a rather excellent trailer. He seems to have become quite a fan of the Saw films, if his deadly promises are anything to go by.  Batman: Arkham City is out October 18, and anybody not buying it is some kind of mental heretic.
