Gotham City Impostors Review: The Heroes Who Need An Introduction

A fear of clowns seems like an irrational fear to some people. But it makes total sense after witnessing the destruction and mayhem caused by Joker-wannabes in Gotham City Impostors. A simple premise makes up the background of the game – people of Gotham City have taken advantage of Batman’s absence (presumably while he’s in Arkham City) and have decided to band together as Joker imposters in order to commit consequence-free crime. Well, Batman wouldn’t let the Joker himself get away with it, so naturally, every Joker has his Batman – or a squad of rookie Batmen, in this case. Rising to the call of duty, these clumsy, self-proclaimed vigilantes have decided to band together and undo the terrible deeds that the arbitrary, irrational Jokerz have committed. This is where Gotham City Impostors is born. (more…)

XBLA Today: Gotham City Impostors, Shank 2

Today’s Xbox Live Arcade update will look very familiar to anyone who scoped out yesterday’s additions to the PlayStation Store. While Xbox owners won’t be able to throw down with the Jak and Daxter Collection, two other cartoony action titles are on the menu.

Gotham City Impostors puts you in the cape and cowl of a caped crusader (not The Caped Crusader) as you attempt to rid Gotham of Jokerz, a particularly dumb brand of criminal who’ve patterned themselves after the Clown Prince of Crime. It can be downloaded for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15), along with hundreds of dollars in optional DLC:

A 6 vs. 6 first person shooter, Gotham City Impostors is a multiplayer game unlike any other, giving players the opportunity to rebel against conformity as they customize their own characters. Posing as amateur vigilantes or villains, gamers create their own Bats and The Jokerz characters using unprecedented customization options including insane costumes, homebrewed gadgets and a wide range of traditional and imagined weapons.

Also available today is Shank 2, which stars a crazed brawler in a crazy brawler. It can be yours for 800 Microsoft Points ($10):

The fan-favorite 2D brawler is back in action with Shank 2. Shank is forced on the offensive wielding his trusty arsenal of weapons and combo moves to protect those close to him. Shank 2 raises the bar from the original, creating an amazing comic book visual style and combat system which redefines the 2D side-scrolling brawler.

PSN Today: Simpsons Arcade, Gotham City Impostors, Jak & Daxter Collection, More

Sony has pulled out another of their patented “kitchen sink” updates of the PlayStation Store. This week sees the release of three major PSN games (the long-awaited Simpsons Arcade Game, hitman game Shank 2, and multiplayer shooter Gotham City Impostors) as well as all three games from the Jak and Daxter Collection.

Speaking of the Jak and Daxter Collection, the complete package is available from the Full PS3 Games section as well as the sexually charged Catherine, tennis sim Top Spin 4, and the bricktastic Lego Pirates of the Caribbean.

Rounding out the new releases is the PS2 Classic SpongeBob SquarePants: The Movie. And don’t forget that The Simpsons Arcade Game is free to PlayStation Plus subscribers (as well as Final Fantasy V). Oh, and the first episode of “The Tester” season three is now available.

Gotham City Impostors prepares for a February 7-8 release

Batman has taken a holiday and it’s up to the regular citizens of Gotham to protect the city from a gang of The Joker’s minions. Thus is born Gotham City Impostors, a Team Fortress 2-like shooter available for download through PC download services and the PSN on February 7 and through the XBLA on February 8 for $14.99.

Why has Bats gone away? Beats me, but I do know that I’m ready to put the hurtin’ on some Jokerz.

The Batmobile lost its wheel… Gotham City Impostors goes away into February

The Joker got away and sprayed seltzer in the eyes of everyone that was getting ready to buy Gotham City Impostors next week as WB Games announced it has been delayed. The PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 game will now be released in February.

No reason was given for the delay, but an online beta for game is currently ongoing. Perhaps the testers found some problem that Oracle has to fix.

No word on if Robin laid an egg or not.
