harley doesn't even look like a clown anymore... just an emo
..is that the point?
Yi-Long  +   1420d ago
I agree...
... Didn't like the design of Harley in the first AA, and don't like it here. I wish they would stay a bit closer to the comic/animated version of the character.

Catwoman looks fantastic though. Obviously inspired by Adam Hughes' design (who based her looks on Audrey Hepburn). Maybe the co-up will be with her, considering Robin/Nightwing/Batgirl are still nowhere to be found in the pics, and you can see her smacking Two-Face in ... his... ehm... face.

It all looks pretty damn good, and it's still a year till release, so I can't wait :)

Hopefully the game will also have lots of unlockables, like concept-artwork, extra costumes, etc etc.

This game will get hammerd with the
Batman AA 1.5 status.

Can not blame Rocksteady, Batman AA has some good graphics and its going to be a challenge to improve them on the the sequal (Gear of War 2)

"Emo" is short for emotional.

It's not even a fashion term.
Eamon  +   1420d ago
He probably means goth
ExplosionSauce  +   1420d ago
Goth-punk-ish or whatever
I think the point here is that she looks less of a clown/jester.

Now that I think about it, I think her look changed because she's with Two-face instead of the Joker(who's a clown)
bjornbear  +   1420d ago
i believe the correct term is "scene"
as in "scene girls"

disgusting...but hey suits a villan with psychosis xD

but goth works too (they aren't too far apart in terms of style imo: too much make up)

wtf =( i cant see them anymore, just a pic of AA joked saying the pics are his ='(

fvckin culture nubs
Fashion and stereotype

Today emo is commonly tied to both music and fashion as well as the emo subculture.[98] Usually among teens, the term "emo" is stereotyped with wearing slim-fit jeans, sometimes in bright colors, and tight t-shirts (usually short-sleeved) which often bear the names of emo bands. Studded belts and black wristbands are common accessories in emo fashion. Some males also wear thick, black horn-rimmed glasses.[99][100][101]

The emo fashion is also recognized for its hairstyles. Popular looks include long side-swept bangs, sometimes covering one or both eyes. Also popular is hair that is straightened and dyed black. Bright colors, such as blue, pink, red, or bleached blond, are also typical as highlights in emo hairstyles. Short, choppy layers of hair are also common. This fashion has at times been characterized as a fad.[102] In the early 2000s, emo fashion was associated with a clean cut look[103] but as the style spread to younger teenagers, the style has become darker, with long bangs and emphasis on the color black replacing sweater vests.

Emo has been associated with a stereotype that includes being particularly emotional, sensitive, shy, introverted, or angst-ridden.[104][105][106] It has also been associated with depression, self-injury, and suicide.[107][108]

I think the reason for Harley's new look is because she's with two face now. Look at her pant colors and hair red and black are his colors and are on opposite sides. She looks smoking and I wish this game would be out now.

KwietStorm  +   1420d ago
When did Harley ever look like a clown? She has mostly been designed as a jester. The biggest difference with her design in the Arkham games is that her full head is exposed, i.e no 'hood' from the jester uniform. These games are also based on the graphic novels, which call for darker, more aggressive design, so I think she looks fine. What's wrong with her look, exactly?

A big bird, and Harleys quite short.

Niceee. I like that they took 2face's style from the last batman movie. Graphics wise the game is beast! it looks even better than the 1st.

They could be anything. We won't find out till we play it.

I agree Natsu, the game looks good. I can't wait for this and Infamous 2 as they were my favorite games last year.

Edit @SuperTiger Bullshots or not, you do know that AA had very good detailed character models too right?

have as much detail as you like, they'll still look like action figures. It's just the way the unreal engine is, plasticky.
zagibu  +   1420d ago
Looking like action figures is not really a bad thing for a game based on comic books.
mac_sparrow  +   1420d ago

was expecting someone to say this, and yes it can be taken as a valid point for Batman.

However, for those of us wanting to invest in characters it is easier to do so if they can be more easily perceived as realistic; not just in appearance but characterisation as well. This is why Nolan's Batman works better than Burton's.

When I'm playing a game I don't want the idea in the back of my head that it's a grown up playing with dollies. I want to have experiences akin to the movie theatre or reading a good book. Arkham Asylum was a good game, but Unreal Engine was a blight upon it.

I feel like i'm living in the movie "Idiocracy". Most of these "screenshots" are NOT in-game footage. They are publicity artwork, use common sense and look to see if you can see ANY aliasing in the images. There is none = not in-game.

You haven't played the first one on pc to say that. And now with the new version of Unreal Engine 3, these screens are most certainly ingame. Pc maybe, but in-game.

You do know that you can render PC screenshots at insane resolutions? FPS don't matter if all you do is take a screenshot.

What does bullshots mean ? that it's not in-game pics ?
#5 (Edited 1420d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
Cartesian3D  +   1420d ago
it means :
the developer says its ingame or screenshots but they add more AA and higher res textures in it . in real world they are in engine renders (on a monster PC may be , or debug system with more RAM)

the final version wont look like that. like EPIC games or many other companies, they just use BULLSHOTS to create more hype and fool customers.
Kingdom Come  +   1420d ago
But on most occasions...
Epic don't state them to be Screenshots, in fact the Artwork they release can be collected within the Limited Editions Artwork Book, they are just mid-quoted.
I mean, let's not start people off on an argument and bring up GG...
number47  +   1420d ago
Epic alwys claims their images are in game. When they aren't. Unlike GG, they didn't raise the bar
for console visuals, like GG has done. Mind you, Sony PR claimed KZ to be in game, not GG themselves. This is unlike Reign & CLifforton B. There is no "on most occasions" its all the time. Every game, even Unreal 3 on consoles was plagued with bullshots.



to any unreal engine game. Still isn't even close, while GG managed to usher in a new level of visuals for the console world. Epic won't/will never. The goal isn't pushing tech, its pushing a game.

Epic uses bullshots in magazines/screenshots on websites from unplayable angles, Cinema cameras, its still done today. Characters posing in front of a camera in an action pose. Yawn.

As far as bullshots go, Epic is the worst offender this generation. Why show off cut-scene visuals/bullshots, and claim the engine is bigger...


and more badass...

when did GG do that again? Post bullshots, then gloat about said bullshots, without proving they are unmatched in any retail released console title..

oh ya, never.

Batman looks good, but the unreal engine isn't really evolving on consoles.

Ill buy this one just like the previous one, Rocksteady does a hell of a good job making a game. I just wish for 4% more variety, and less back tracking. I love the combo/counter system..

bring on hard mode.

Bullshots are in-game shots that have been edited some way. Softening any jagged edges, enhancing colour or focus, or even rendering the image at a larger than normal resolution (1080p image for what's only going to be a 720p game) etc.

I think what most people mean by bullshots are in-game screens that have been tampered with to look prettier than they actually are. Kind of like how a picture of a model is touched up a bit in Photoshop (removing any blemishes, scars etc).

Edit: What the guys above me said.

zagibu  +   1420d ago
Actually, it's unclear whether screenshots taken at higher resolutions should be considered bullshots. You know, there are some monster rigs out there that can render stuff at 4 times the framerate a regular one does. Or at the same framerate but at insane resolutions.

I'd say a bullshot is a screenshot that was manipulated outside the game engine.
Acquiescence  +   1420d ago
Don't really like Two-Face's design...
he's not the White Knight gone wrong that Aaron Eckhart captured perfectly. Just looks more like a standard mafioso player.

drosera1  +   1420d ago
Come on people! Hardly any of these pics are in-game. Since when does a game have ABSOLUTELY NO ALIASING? These are mostly publicity bullshots.
zagibu  +   1420d ago
A game running on a PC at 1080p with 8x AA has no noticeable aliasing. Also, you can go much higher in resolution, ever heard about Eyefinity and the like?
seanadelph  +   1420d ago

I hope it doesn't suck as much as Batman: Arkham Asylum. Go Ahead and disagree with me I know you will but I don't give a damn. Arkham Asylum is overrated and boring. I don't see what anyone sees in this game other than it's better than any other batman game.
