      So, anyone know if they’re still going to allow the online play for NO monthly charge? Cause, I mean, wow.

        I would think so, I mean that seems to be the most sense.It is an MMO and there are server charges to pay.

    If this news has taught me anything, it’s not to listen to Mark Hamill when he says he’s retiring a character. (This is his second game since he retired the Joker.)

      No he said Arkham Asylum was his last work voicing the Joker… So this is the 1st job since then. But he might not have been mistaken, maybe he’s finishing this up 1st.

          True and I get a lot of people love him. As many of my friends claim he’s the “one true” Joker. I’m glad their will be voice acting in the game, Kevin and Mark aren’t really the draw for me.

        Yeah … Arkham Asylum. Since then he’s signed on to do Arkham Asylum 2 and DCU Online. That makes 2. He made his retirement announcement last year at San Diego even.

          I thought he only announced Arkham Asylum 2 as “the last one”, guess I never heard when he said the original game was it….Oh Hamill you so crazy.

    Okay kinda woulda liked Tim Daly or George Newburn, because I’d rather see Adam Baldwin play Big Blue in the film.

    Kevin Conroy looks seriously sick. I didn’t recognise him at first.
