Batman:Arkham Asylum Collector’s Edition

Batman has had a bit of renaissance lately. And if any superhero of badassery needed to be revitalized after Hollywood ditched their raped and mutilated body in a back alley, it’s Batman. For God’s sake, they gave the man fake nipples. FAKE. NIPPLES.

That shit ain't right.

That shit ain't right.

And if apologizing for all the horrible things they did to him by making a bad ass reboot of the series wasn’t enough, the entertainment industry is about to unleash Batman: Arkham Asylum on the world this June. If you’ve been living under some sort of rock, on Mars, this game is highly anticipated by anyone that’s ever wanted a Batman game that involved more finesse than punching guys in the face and racing the Batmobile in circles.

There are A LOT of trailers, videos and screenshots for Arkham Asylum and if you’ve found me than you clearly know what a Google search is. If you’re too lazy to utilize that, here is the official trailer for the game, followed by one of some of the awesome sneaky badassery gameplay.

Now that you are all properly hyped, let’s get to the real meat of this post. The collector’s edition. We all knew there would be one. The Collector’s Edition can either be the pinnacle of fan service or the bottom of the barrel. Which way would the Eidos marketing people go? Crappy artbook or some shoddy pen with “Batman” embossed on it? Hell no! Eidos doesn’t half ass Batman!

Holy Mother of God!

Holy Mother of God!

That’s right. You get a bloody batarang! The complete collection includes:

■ 14″ Batarang with stand – Matches the Batarang’s in-game design

■ Arkham Doctor’s Journal – 48 pages of notes on Arkham’s inmates, Embossed leather dust jacket

■ 2 Sleeve Digi-pack, including: Game disc, Behind-the-scenes DVD

■ Code for downloadable Challenge Map – Exclusive “Crime Alley” map, available immediately

■ Full-color Manual

I haven’t been this psyched about a collector’s edition since I found out I’d get a genuine Big Daddy figurine with my copy of Bioshock. Of course, all this awesome doesn’t come cheap. If you want to attack your pets with a replica batarang, you’re going to have to shell out $100 USD. Not sure what the conversion for Britain or other countries is; but I’m guessing it’ll run about the same. A little pricey for this economy but for those that can afford it, a feather in their cap.
