Batman: Arkham Asylum Won 2 BAFTA Awards

Square Enix London Studios, a part of Square Enix Europe, today announced that the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum won 2 awards at last week's British Academy Video Game Awards (BAFTA), including Best Game and Gameplay. Held annually in London, the BAFTA Awards recognise the best in innovation and talent within the videogame industry.

"It's fantastic for Batman: Arkham Asylum to win such prestigious awards," said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios. "To receive recognition from the British Academy is a huge honour and reflects the passion and dedication of everyone involved in the game."

In Batman: Arkham Asylum, BATMAN finds himself trapped inside the confines of Gotham's psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane, ARKHAM ASYLUM. The Joker has set a trap for the DARK KNIGHT and has conspired with the deranged inmates to eliminate Batman once and for all. Adding to the authenticity of the game are veteran animated Batman voice talents Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy, who reprise their roles as The Joker and Batman respectively.

Batman: Arkham Asylum features an original story by Paul Dini, Batman writer and five-time Emmy Award winner whose credits include Lost and Batman: The Animated Series. Gamers will move in the shadows, instil fear amongst their enemies and confront The Joker and Gotham City's most notorious villains, including HARLEY QUINN, BANE, KILLER CROC, POISON IVY and SCARECROW, who have taken over the asylum.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Games For Windows LIVE. A Game of the Year Edition will be released in PAL territories from March 26th, 2010.

Batman has no room for our

Batman has no room for our imagination for his winning awards. He is still giving us a reason to admire him. Good thing that Batman's videos are satidfying do far. Oh, boy – the Google Viacom lawsuit documents are out in public! Somehow, I doubt that either company is in need of fast cash, or running for payday loans or a bailout in any way shape or form.  Copyright protection is something that is warranted and deserved, and the suit does call into question practices that could be contradictory to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, but it REALLY doesn't help Viacom at all that they uploaded videos to Youtube and then cried foul…about the videos of their copyright that they uploaded.
