City of Terror – How Rocksteady Can Deliver in the Eventual Sequel to Batman: Arkham City

David Rodriguez writes, "Last year’s Batman: Arkham City further demonstrated that video games based on comic book characters do not have to be movie tie-ins and they do not have to suck. Arkham City – and its predecessor – embodies everything that is great about the Batman mythos: the cape, cowl, car, gadgets, plane, city, asylum, and so much more. It continued a great narrative of storytelling established by writer, Paul Dini, in the first game, but did not conclude the overarching story with any sense of totality; it left possibilities for a sequel. There was a plethora of Easter eggs and hints – some of which have not been discovered to this day – that further pointed to a continuation of this particular story in the near future. The following is what I believe Rocksteady should do in order to give Batman a fitting conclusion (or continuation)." (Batman Arkham City: Harley Quinn's Revenge, Batman: Arkham City, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Arkham City had probably the best combat I've ever seen in a game. The Robin and Nightwing DLC in particular is so damn addictive!

Still, I really hope Rocksteady are working on something non Batman. I've love to see them take what they've learned from the Arkham games, add that addictive beautiful combat and create something new and fresh free from the constraints of an existing IP.
