Gotham City Impostors
This may be old news for some but it was certainly news for me: Warner Bros. is developing a multiplayer first-person shooter apparently set in the Batman universe called Gotham City Impostors. I'm not sure what to say...
There's something about "first-person shooter" and "Batman" that doesn't quite mix. And while I understand that you don't actually play as Batman in the game, you do however play as a bunch of "impostors" in Batman costumes; which I guess makes it okay.
Reading more about the game, it sounds like a regular run of the mill FPS but with the Joker and Batman skins over it. That said, the game is going to be a downloadable title. Considering that downloadable titles have recently been getting better in quality (from my experience, there have been a truckload of great downloadable games these past few years) I'll probably give the game a shot... for all I know, it might actually be good.
Then again, to sort of mimic Comic Alliance, if Batman doesn't show up at the end of each campaign and beat the crap out of every player while breaking their guns in half, yelling "These are the weapons of the enemy! We do not use them!" I'll be gravely disappointed.
Anyway, I made a quick colored sketch based off of the "Batchick" that appeared in the promotional poster for the game.
Here's the digital sketch:
