Batman: Arkham City leads today’s new games

Batman: Arkham City easily ranks as today’s most anticipated new game.

The sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum includes appearances by classic Batman villains like the Joker, Riddler and Poison Ivy. The game also features voice acting from Mark Hamill, who played the Joker in “Batman: The Animated Series” and writing from Paul Dini, a wordsmith who contributed his talents to that terrific show.

Batman: Arkham City is released for PlayStation 3 and XBox 360. The game’s PC release is set for Nov. 15.

A list of more games out can be found here. Among the other new releases, I think the most intriguing is Rocksmith, a title billed as more of a guitar instructional than a game per se.
