Batman: Arkham Asylum demo dated, launches August 7th
by Joey Núñez

The 'Caped Crusader' has starred in his fair share of videogames throughout the years - anyone else remember playing Batman and Robin on the SNES?. Sadly, like most licensced games, Batman's attempts at acheiving videogame greatness have been subpar, at best. Eidos and Rocksteady plan to change all of that come August 25th, when Batman: Arkham Asylum launches worldwide.

If you're a Bat-fan (like me) August 25th probably seems lightyears away. Luckily, turns out Eidos is a big tease, and has decided to launch a playable demo for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on August 7th. Yeah, go ahead and double check your calendar: the Bat-Demo launches this friday.

If you've somehow managed to keep yourself in the dark about Batman: Arkham Asylum, rest assured, the game seems to be shaping up quite well. Promising to be one of the ever elusive "Good Comic Book Games", Arkham Asylum casts you as Gotham's Dark Knight, as he takes on some of the most twisted characters in the Batman rougue gallery: Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Bane, the Scarecrow and, of course, the Joker. Trailers and screenshots have been offering up nothing but great graphics, intense combat, and deep stealth gameplay - dare I dream it, we might just have a decent Batman game on our hands.

Don't believe the hype? Download the demo this Friday and decide for yourself. Or, take the lazy route and let us fine folks at GGTL do the downloading for you. Expect demo impressions early next week.
