World's first image of Arkham City's Robin, new details announced!
... but I dislike the model. He looks nothing like the Tim Drake from the comics. Horrible design. They 'butched' him up, probably to 'please' all the Robin-haters who only know him from the sucky 60's show and the bad movies. Also sucks that he's exclusive to some, instead of to be enjoyed by all. I like that he has his pole though. Should make for some cool moves, although I hope he can still do enough hand-to-hand combat.
That Robin actually looks cool.
This is one badass looking Robin. I always thought he should have a hooded cape like Jim Lee drew as a concept once.
Hmm the outfit is cool, but imma wait with a decision till I see his face clearly. Judging from the facing down head, his face could be anything from really flat and dumb to interesting and good-looking.
Looks cool? i call it pissing on the name well at least hes not called 117 with a yellow/green helmet.
Robin looks cool? WTF? Atleast give him some fucking hair.
He looks like they just took Cole from InFamous and stuck him in a Batman suit.
Challenge maps are completely unnecessary in this and previous game. I think the only reason they're there is potential DLC. It's hard to add something to the story, but new characters and rooms to challenge mode is easy thing.
... I thought they added some cool extra gameplay to the original game.
Finally, a Robin that doesn't look like a total flamer.
Robin should look like this! Color added too. Credit to: 'frogsplash45' from the IGN Boards, PS3 Lobby. He has actually submitted his work already to Rocksteady as I type. Hopefully they agree to make changes to his hair! http://i53.tinypic.com/2dgr... Comparison shot: http://i51.tinypic.com/91l8... Black & White w/ hair: http://i51.tinypic.com/2dlq... Comparison shot: http://media.comicbookmovie...
... gave him some hair and color. http://img.photobucket.com/...
I think he looks really fitting to the dark, mature, and twisted world of the game. Looks like Eminem/Cole too
Yeah he does look like Cole from Infamous.
Looks like Chris O donell robin
They probably did it this way to avoid dynamic hair during combat.
He doesn't have to look exactly like Tim Drake from the comics, no one draws Tim the same every single time. I highly doubt the design had anything to do with anything in the past since Tim Drake is not Dick Grayson.
Sucky 60's show? No sir, as a kid I highly enjoyed that show. Now the spiderman one, THAT was a sucky show. On topic/ I'm on board with this Robin. Seems good enough.
@ Yi, The pole is a smart move. Batman is physically an overpowering, very strong character, so him destroying a room full of henchmen hand to hand makes way more sense than Robin, who was always rather meek. The pole might level the field a little for him.
They need to make him look like the original mainstream Robin with black hair since he's most recognizable that way. It's kinda ironic that Rocksteady made him look like Cole from Infamous. Cole had his hair switched during development. Hope they do the same to Robin!
i like this look, but why all the way to Best Buy.
I'm not sure.. it looks good, though... but I prefer Batman to be alone.
He still is alone, this is just for challenge maps :) Although I definitely had my doubts about Robin in this but he does look pretty awesome, he reminds me of Cole from inFamous quite a bit.
I kinda want batgirl =)
she was in the last game SPOILER http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Oracle is Batgirl /SPOILER END
i want to see her in her costume.
you know she is in a wheelchair right? http://batman.wikia.com/wik... read the first 5 lines
SPOILER******* Well robin (Todd) dead since this would be after The Killing Joke. So is this the third robin? Tim Drake right? IDK about the rest of the robins but from what i know Dick is the only one that actually matures into Nightwing, Todd becomes unstable and killed but eventually is brought back as Red Hood (joker how ironic). But why would he still be Robin? Anyway this is just a costume from my understanding, So yes BatGirl is still possible since it'll just be for challenges. But don't expect Batgirl in the story. the Batman Universe is so big i think, Batman Beyond is a alt. reality of Killing Joke i think (since Barbara can walk, unless they cured her) *****END SPOILER****
Um, Batgirl and Oracle might be the same person, but totally different characters. Everyone here is saying they want the Batgirl Barbara Gordon as a playable character.
I want her too. bow chicka wow wow.
Batman forever much?
Batman forever? I see no nipples on this Robin suit, buddy. lol
He's talking about the STUPID ass buzz they gave him, not the suit.
Says the guy with a guy with dramatic anime hair as his avatar xD
@Eternus Dude, seriously. Robin's had the same freaking hairstyle for the last 60 years. Why does he have to get a stupid buzz like every1 in anything nowadays? Also, thanks for calling me Lord. makes me feel important.
Nightwing? He's way cooler and 'batgirl' (Oracle) in Arkham Asylum was the older version, so it'd make sense to use the older Robin a.k.a. Nightwing.
It's tim drake so there still is a chance for nightwing.
Wasn't Dick Grayson Nightwing?
almost forgot about Nightwing.
Looks like Cole from InFamous
ha ha... first thing that came to mind....but with a boy wonder uni.
kinda looks like Cole
robin looks like he's ready 2 kik some ass
Looks like he could actually handle himself in a fight. I admire Rocksteady for having their own take.
For the first time robin looks manly
Robin.... is the BOY wonder... Is there something confusing about that? lol
boys cant beat up grown men. Is there something confusing about that? They manned him up and made him look like he could handle himself in a fight. Fighters have short hair. They dont want to get grabbed by the hair.
Actually Robin's a Teenager about 15 years old and has always been very fit and built, especially for his age so, yeah, the Boy Wonder with a steel freaking staff can stand on his own against adults.
Also, some of us have lengthy hair and can still mix it up with the best of 'em. Grabbing hair is harder than you might think when some1 knows how to properly move.
Does anyone know which Robin it is, I hope its the Robin who died in the Red Hood he was bad ass!! And No he looks nothing like Cole
Tim Drake, sorry :(
I think he looks good, looks like he's not just a side-kick but more in the same league with Batman. But, whats with the buzzcut?
He looks like Star Killer from The Force Unleashed mixed with Cole from Infamous to me.
Amazing game the first Arkham. Attention to detail was amazing however. Did any of you guys think the first was a bit short?. I don't know why perhaps i was having a good time but it felt short. Also i was a bit disapointed with the boss battles except for scarecrow. All of them were too easy especialy Joker.
Cole?? What are you doing in that suit Cole?
http://www.youtube.com/watc... i was watching this a while ago, and although its hard to hear, listen around the 20 second mark. its the voice of dick grayson therefore i conclude nightwing is in the game.
my bad. i forgot to say, if robin is tim drake THEN nightwing is in it. if robin is still dick grayson then.....you get the point.
Robin can't be Dick Grayson since Barbara's already Oracle.
the fu unexpected
Damn he looks badass.
Holy Schumachers, Batman! :P
I said this basically on IGN. The hair is absolutely wrong for Tim Drake. It was always kinda spiky. I think it looks awesome from the forehead down. But, I'm really just glad that they didn't do this to Dick Grayson since he's my favorite comic book character. I don't hate it, but I AM glad that that isn't a picture of Grayson. *SIDE NOTE* To all of the Robin Haters: Seriously? Grow up. It's a comic book character. He isn't a "fairy". He is THE BOY WONDER! Comments like that make you sound homophobic. I have a feeling that most of the people who hate on ANY iteration of Robin probably isn't a fan to begin with. EDIT* At the very top I had typed "kindy" when I meant to type "kinda" lol
I like nightwing, but dislike robin for the same reason I dislike bucky. Personally it has nothing to do with homophobia, I just feel like it weakens the main character. Batman and captain america are awesome enough not to need a sidekick tagging along all the time. However nightwing, as far as I can tell, is a lot more independent. Also, I dislike the bright colors he normally wears. They would be absolutely awful for stealth or the whole "fear" aspect from nolan's movies. Robin just doesn't belong in the darker batman world.
I have no problem with people disliking him. As you stated your opinion in a mature manner. I was specifically talking about people I've seen saying "at least he doesn't look like a fairy anymore" THAT sounds homophobic to me. I guess it's just how some people were saying it that bothered me. I also agree with you that he doesn't belong in the darker batman world. At least in his "true" form.
He looks like Cole in a Robin costume. Oh well, won't hurt to try it out. They need to put his hair back though.
Will it be something you can purchase a while after it comes out though? What if I'd rather pre-order it from amazon or something (20$ amazon gc with purchase or something)?
He looks like a marine in training, kinda badass.
the R stands for MaRine and this is not Robin so make a dam Robin, they shouldn't mix his DNA with cole's and star killer!
don't know if anyone noticed this yet but Black Mask has now been confirmed. One of the challenge maps is called Black Mask Hideout And I really like the design. Looks badass
looks horrible, talk about generic nerdbastards.com/wp-content/up loads/2010/07/protagnoists3.jpg
this is not robin, this is a younger batman with a "R" on his armor instead of a bat.
