FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

DAILY MANIFESTO

E3 First Impressions: Gotham City Impostors

Posted on Thursday, June 16 @ 14:29:45 Eastern by Eduardo_Reboucas
I must admit, I never expected to see a first-person shooter based on Batman. The caped crusader would never use a gun to defend himself, and the idea of doing away with the acrobatics and platforming seen in the many games based on him in the past is sure to rock the boat.



In Batman Imposters, you don't actually play as Batman, nor his arch-enemy, the Joker. Like those well-intentioned but very stupid folks in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, you'll control normal, everyday people who don a cape and cowl and join the fight in their name of their idol. In what plays and looks a lot like Team Fortress 2, both factions fight towards their own goals in competitive objective-based battles. In the particular mode shown on the show floor, the Bats and the Clowns fought over the control of an amusement park and a mysterious brainwashing device that could turn players on the opposite team into mindless zombies for a limited amount of time.

Even though some might be wary of the idea of sending the franchise into such unfamiliar territory, there is still a long way to go in Gotham City Imposters' development until it sees the light of day later this year. As time goes on we'll get a better idea of just what kind of game is going to be. One thing's for sure, 2011 will be a busy year for both the dark knight and his imposters.
