Arkham City Update: The Penguin

24 Jul

I’ve never been a huge fan of the Penguin, as his awkward deformations and obsession with birds has always seemed a bit corny to me. (Danny DeVito’s Penguin would be the epitome of that corniness.) But I like the direction Rocksteady is taking the Penguin—further exaggerating his pompous, greedy ways and making him more of a brainy, bourgeois-shackling kingpin. After all, the Penguin has always been a power player through Batman lore and very few Gotham City criminals have a simple, tangible motive (such as wealth) to push them over the edge.

Plus the first looks of the Penguin look pretty cool—he actually looks quite frightening, as opposed to the umbrella-wielding fatty we’ve grown used to seeing. He’s still got an umbrella. But other cool things, too… like a grenade-launcher.

    It’s true. Hopefully Arkham City isn’t the last Batman game in the franchise. I guess there are always ways to come up with new story arcs that use the same characters over, but the great part about Arkham Asylum for Batman fans like me was running into the criminal memorabilia (and the various criminals themselves) throughout the complex. Just never knew who’d you’d run into next.
