Payback is a dish best served by someone Psychologically Unstable, and in DLC: Harley Quinn’s Revenge released as part of the Arkham City Game of the Year Edition we get to see Harley Quinn take the rein as a formidable villain. While this DLC was promoted as a definitive ending to the  Arkham City series, this gamer-girl you see before you  decided it was a must-play. The following review goes over the 2 hours worth of game-play offered by the DLC: the difference between playing as Robin and Batman through the campaign, and what the DLC has to offer to the overall story. If you haven’t played Batman: Arkham City, please avert thine eyes because the following review contains Spoilers & Easter Eggs found within the previous game.

“Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned.” Truer words have never been spoken. With the release of Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition, the featured definite end to the game DLC Harley Quinn’s Revenge will show Harley Quinn as a definite force to be reckoned with. For those who want to refresh their memory on the Dark Knight’s adventure into the infamous prison “Arkham City” can pick up the  Game of the Year Edition starting  May 29. The following is a full and more intriguing look at the what the DLC has to offer with playable characters Batman, and Robin.

Buying the Game of the Year Edition will give you all previously released downloadable content which includes: “Catwoman Pack,” “Nightwing Bundle Pack,” “Robin Bundle Pack,” “Challenge Map Pack” and “Arkham City Skins Pack”, as well as the new “Harley Quinn’s Revenge” content.  For those who own the original edition of Batman: Arkham City, and don’t want to get the new edition they will be able to download “Harley Quinn’s Revenge Pack” beginning May 29 on PlayStation Network ($9.99) and the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points.

The following sneak peek of what we can expect in ‘Harley Quinn’s Revenge’ is a perfect answer to the request of fans for more concrete involvement with both characters in the story line. Does this mean, that if there is another Batman game added to the popular franchise, RockSteady will add this same gameplay? Are you looking forward to this DLC’s definite ending to the story in Arkham City, let us know in the comments below.

First, Rocksteady Games took the Batman franchise and turned it into one of the single best video game franchise of all-time with Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Doning their utility belt of success, the game developers have decided to resurrect another gaming franchise, four mutant turtles and their talking rat master. Maybe you’ve heard of them?

The rumor going around is that Rocksteady may possibly be developing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game called “The Manhattan Crisis”, no relation to 1992′s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Manhattan Project. While this is only an Internet rumor right now, no one at Rocksteady has publicly denied the rumor either.

As far as we have can gather:

– All four Turtles will be playable, with flashbacks played as Master Splinter/Hamato Yoshi.
– Gameplay and story/stage progression will be similar to Batman: Arkham City.
– Bosses include Bebop and Rocksteady, Dr. Baxter Stockman, Shredder (Oroku Saki), and Krang. In the case of the humans-turned-mutants, you fight them in both forms throughout the story.
– The Turtle Van and Turtle Blimp will be included.
– The game will use Arkham City‘s graphics engine.
– The game is expected to be more dark than slapstick.

Having a five-star developer working on what most NerdBastards grew up watching is outstanding. If Rocksteady can somehow manage to repeat the magic act they pulled with Batman while keeping the game interesting including multiple player input, Rocksteady could be the king of the gaming mountain for years.

Just no Vanillia Ice, we’ve had enough to deal with after TMNT.

It’s getting ever closer to the October release of the highly anticipated Batman: Arkham City and like most games it comes with awesome pre-order surprises. When Rocksteady and Warner Bros. got together and decided to make a sequel to 2009’s Batman: Arkham Asylum they never expected the impact it would have. The game is already on it’s way to being more bat-tacular than the original and choosing which costume you want is going to be tough.

They all look awesome but I’d personally go for The Animated Series skin, that brings back some good memories. For those of you looking to get access to any of these costumes here’s the information on each one.
