One of the complaints about Batman: Arkham City has been that’s it’s too short. I don’t get it. Even if you ignore the 12 side missions, the 400 Riddler trophies and the 24 challenges, if you’re not beating up every thug you see while grappling across town, I think you’re doing it wrong. At any rate, as this trailer reveals, there’s still more Arkham City to play as the Nightwing DLC will be available on November 1st for 560 Microsoft Points or $7 on PSN. As you can see, Nightwing comes with his own set of gadgets, as well as the ability to beat bad guys with sticks instead of his fists. He also comes with two exclusive challenge maps, titled “Wayne Manor” and “Main Hall,” and a TAS skin. I wish it was his ’70s outfit, but enh, you can’t have everything.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
