    i think the next arkaham game should include the scarecrow and releasing a fear toxin on gotham. i found that secret chamber in the boat and the insects could be used to spread the toxin. batman and scarecrow both use fear differently and with the joker being dead its time to find a new main villain. and personally i want to see man bat in video game form. so scarecrow could use man bat as a solider as her builds a fear army. using less known characters as calendar man and even bring back zsasz in a bigger role. could be called Arkham: City of Fear (or Terror)

    The seeds of “Batman: No Man’s Land” is well planted. Gang wars? Check. Seismic activity? Check. Allusion to who’s “responsible” for destroying Gotham? Sure. Obviously, the mystery is in the details. The third Arkham game should be and probably is on a much grander scale. How does “Arkham Unleashed” sound? With Arkham Asylum and Arkham City both broken and destroyed, the criminally insane are out in the open of Gotham herself. The villains: Hush, Scarface & Ventriloquist, Black Mask, Calendar Man, Killer Croc, and Azrael, plus surprises. The heroes: Robin, Nightwing, and Azrael. I mention Azrael twice because his story should be told from both hero AND villain perspective. What about Batgirl, Huntress, or Black Canary? What about using the myriad of Bat vehicles? The objective: Batman (and family) being the hero(es) Gotham always need him to be a la TDKR. Bats restores order from a chaotic Gotham. Boom.

    Second entry: It kinda piggy backs off my first entry. My list of villains: Hush, Scarface/Ventriloquist, Black Mask, Calendar Man, Killer Croc, and Azrael. Now, add Scarecrow, Ratcatcher, Firefly, and Maxie Zeus. Does that take care of the full rogues gallery? The main villain is… wait for it… Jason Todd. Make him the one responsible for Gotham’s destruction. It’s his ultimate answer for making Gotham’s villainy pay. Batman and family should be tested to the most intimate of limits. A few heroes should “fall.” DC tried killing off Nightwing and Stephanie Brown. Remember that? Anyway, same rules apply. The playable levels: Wayne Manor, Batcave, and, maybe even, Bludhaven. Yeah, I’m chock full of ideas.

    This is tough. I figure that a lot of the big guns really got fair treatment so far. They’ll never top that Mr. Freeze sequence; best boss battle ever. Clayface and Ra’s also had great moments. And frankly, I’m over Riddler. So what does that leave? I’d like to see the Black Glove storyline used. Bring in the Batmen from all over the world: Knight, Squire, Gaucho, Man of Bats, etc. And let’s have some good, good vehicle sequences this time. Batmobile and Batwing for sure. I would not mind seeing a Whirly-Bat either. And it would have to be open-world. Skyrim-type open-world. All the boroughs of Gotham, the ‘burbs, and what the heck, throw in a sequence in Metropolis.

    Joker is dead. Poison Ivy’s Titan vines have been causing severe seismic activity. Batman is on normal patrol (tutorial), exploring various parts of Gotham — Wayne Tower, Wayne Manor, the Batcave, and Arkham City. The inmates (Black Mask, Scarface, Penguin, Two-Face, Croc, Jane Doe, Clayface) are loose and forming territories. Since Gotham is more expansive than Arkham City, the player can drive around in the Batmobile or Robin/Nightwing cycle, fly around in the Batwing, and speed around in the Batboat. More heroes are playable (Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman, Batgirl, Canary). As the game picks up, THE earthquake happens. Fear grips Gotham (Scarecrow). And Joker’s body goes missing (Lazarus Pit). This was no natural occurrence. Someone was responsible, but who? Is that person someone close to Batman/Bruce Wayne (Azrael, Hush, Red Hood, League of Assassins, Society of Owls)? Who lives? Who dies? In the end, Joker returns to Gotham.

    Two words: Bat-Mite!

    As the Joker is dying from the titan virus, he is visited by an imp from the 5th dimension. A game is played. A world is changed. Nightmares become real. In a world where heroes never existed, a man is plagued by visions of what once was.

    Batman is no more. Enter Zur-En-Arrh.

    What happened to the earth’s World’s Finest? Who are the Injustice Lords? Who are Gotham’s Underground? And what the hell is a Mxyplyzyk?

    Using Mxy clues to unlock fragmented memories of world that never was…. Zur-En-Arrh must delve into a landscape of twists, turns and horrors only the insane could understand….to rewrite everything as it should be.

    Talon, Aztek, Huntress, Creeper, Spolier, Ignition, Scorch, Bat-Mite, Ace the hound, and a host of DC’s finest…as you’ve never seen them before.

    Welcome to…..Batman Arkham: Emperor Joker.

    Chaos is filling the streets. The innocent fuelled with anarchy. Rumours are running rampant.

    BATMAN IS DEAD.

    Reports are coming in from all over Gotham City with “Batmen” sightings of murder, thievery and deception. An encrypted message is sent to Oracle, so complex that she will need the help of the entire Bat-Family to solve.

    The Calculator is back.

    From Metropolis to Nanda Parat, with encrypted clues around the globe…Robin, Batgirl and Catwoman search for the answers amongst a host of friends and enemies.

    Back in Gotham, play as Nightwing, Jason Todd or Catman for top spot as the new Dark Knight. Pass the game with the 3 characters, unlock Azrael’s story.

    Who is the mastermind behind it all? What is the ultimate fate of Bruce Wayne? Who will rise as Gotham’s protector?

    With 4 different endings….there can be only 1 true Dark Knight.

    Batman Arkham: Gotham Knights.

    ARKHAM WORLD:

    It will be about Nightwing more! He has to fight Mr Freeze and Batman will come and Help. Really it should be could Nightwing ARKHAM WORD. When Nightwing Finds the bad guys he finds out there are more bad guys than just Mr Freeze and this clan of goons have taken Batman and Robin also Cat Woman so Nightwing has to fight all these bad guys to save Batman and Robin also Cat Woman.

    Prepared. Enhanced. Unhinged. INSANE. No one will underestimate or forget them EVER again.

    A new, different Titan virus has been unleashed. Doctor Death has been preparing….playing.

    Billy Numerous, Flamingo, The Baffler, Corrosive Man, Narcosis, Wrath, Orca……gathered together, experimented on and unleashed onto Gotham City.

    Two-face, The Penguin, The Riddler, Mr. Freeze, The Scarecrow, Hush, Killer Crock….DEAD. Bodies left with clues.

    With Nightwing and Robin missing, Batman must rely on the Gotham City Girls (Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Harley Quinn) to help quell the growing fears and instability in Gotham City.

    Who is the RED HOOD? What’s his connection to Ra’s Al Ghul?

    Joker, thanks to Titan virus, is dying to know.

    Twists, turns and unexpectedness galore….all lead to inevitable team-up no one was expecting.

    Batman and Joker Vs……Jason Todd.

    All game…all insane.

    Chaos is order. Anarchy is Justice.

    The next Batman Arkham series game should build on the clues they have left us so far. The scarecrow barge, strange stating that more facilities have been planned and the fact that Joker’s body is missing. I think scarecrow should have received help from a big investor(Lex Luthor). This could tie-in Superman and possible the justice league to have his toxin crippling citizens across multiple cites(extra DLC, add hero and their city plus missions). THis would primarily take place in Gotham and Metropolis but you could add more cities. Then halfway through the game we find Joker has been cloned and that he is still alive. THere could be clones of all super villains that are weaker in addition to thugs and you could have an awesome challenge mode with various superfriends and hall of doom memebers.

    Let’s make the next Arkham Game exactly like the Lego Batman Game just with Arkham style characters. Justice League! Super Friends! Hall of Doom!

    Hush goes all-in on the destruction of Bruce Wayne, as he stumbles upon the secret of Batman. So, he meticulously exacts revenge by stealing Joker’s body. Meanwhile in pursuit of a score, Catwoman witnesses Hush’s crime. She tails Hush to an unfamiliar hideout, when she’s ambushed. Hush planned to be seen and followed! Since being a renowned surgeon as Thomas Elliot, Hush easily cuts out Selina Kyle’s heart. His plan is to resurrect the Joker. His next ingredient would be the body of Basil Karlo, last seen defeated and submerged in one of the few Lazarus Pits within Gotham proper. Thanks to Hush, the Bat family gets systematically taken out by iconic villains, who just so happen to know each individual’s weaknesses and FEAR. Batman, the last man standing, finally rises to the occasion. It’s a battle against time as childhood friends duke it to save Gotham.

    Terry McGinnis arrives at a broken-into Wayne Manor. Upon entry of the cave, he fears and knows the worst. Bruce Wayne murdered at the Bat computer, by way of Joker’s laughing gas. But how?

    Flashback to Gotham. Killer Croc, obviously, never killed Scarecrow. The violence under Arkham Asylum was an act, a ruse. Where did the rogues go after the events of Arkham City? The only closure players got was with Joker and Harley. The game starts out from Robin’s perspective, as he pursues Black Mask. Robin stumbles upon an underground lair. He is then ambushed and captured by a large, shadowy figure. After a few days, Batman & Nightwing go in search of Robin. After collecting clues from the gauntlet of villains, Batman makes a startling discovery: Robin was nowhere to be found and presumed dead. Who was responsible?

    Decades later, it’s Batman [Beyond] versus Joker a.k.a. Tim Drake.

    The next game, Arkham World, should be even larger than previous games. Have Batman travel the world to capture criminals who escaped when Arkham City was shut down. Every criminal should get out and hightail it some place else. Ex. Ivy in Brazil, Freeze in Antarctica. Have Arkham City as a sort of hub, so you can find clues to where the less obvious villains went. You can’t fight anyone in Arkham City other than petty criminals and maybe Calander Man (Arkham City is still in the process of being torn down.) When all villains are captured, you realize Ra’sha Gual is not among them. You fly to his home in the Alps and meet a resurrected Joker with his son that Harley delivered. They kill you and you play the rest of the game as nightwing trying to avenge Batman.

  17. Aupde June 17, 2012 at 11:31 am ·

    Batman is killed by a unknown figure (Hush,Ra’Sha Gual, and the Joker’s son hired bane to kill him). The rest of the Bat family must avenge him and therefore hunt down every crook in Gotham. When they learn Bane killed him, they have an armored up Nightwing break Bane’s back. They proceed to track down his benefactors shortly. They Bat Family should consist of all playable characters. Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl, Catwoman, and Spoiler should be the playable characters.

    After running thru the gauntlet, Batman returns to the Batcave, nearly burnt out. Instead of the customary greeting by Alfred, Batman is hit with a sense of danger. Bane escaped the confines of Arkham City and followed Robin back to the secret headquarters. Batman sees the slumped, yet still alive, Robin and Alfred. Unfortunately, Batman is no match for Bane, and the behemoth successfully breaks the bat, infamously breaking the spine of Bruce Wayne.

    Weeks go by with no Batman. Nightwing tries to maintain order within the streets of Gotham, as she has succumbed to criminal madness. Meanwhile, a silhouetted figure enters the Wayne Estate. This mysterious figure accesses the cave, without tripping any repaired automated defenses. Right before donning the cowl, the figure steps into a light. It is, none other than, DOC OWEN.

    Does this new Dark Knight have what it takes to defeat Gotham’s worst?
