The Penguin In ‘Arkham City’ Is The D-Bag You Know and Love (?).
Rocksteady Studios has dropped their rendition and interpretation of The Penguin from Arkham City on our asses, and it’s the same character we’ve come to know throughout years of Bat lore.
Many people had guessed Penguin would be featured in the game: one of the early trailers revealed the iceberg lounge, the trendy nightclub owned by Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin. He will definitely be one of the big bads you will face, introduced after you solve one of Riddler’s puzzles. The first thing Penguin does is order his minions to kill batman, as any self-respected villain would. according to [Rocksteady’s] Ginn, putting a slightly different spin on such an established character was one of the highlights for the Rocksteady team. ” The way that Penguin has always been portrayed is as quite an aristocratic, well-spoken gentleman who’s got these twisted delusions of grandeur” he says. “So we’ve made him a really horrible, nasty piece of work – but still with the delusion of grandeur. He dresses well, but in a poor taste, and we’ve made him this brutish, brutal guy but also key into collection fascination that hes had through out the years.
I’ve never cared for the Penguin, so I don’t really give a fuck about his appearance in the title. Not only that, but I’ve thought the dude could use an update on his overall character and appearance for the better part of…well since I hit puberty or something like that. Just can’t take the dick-bag seriously.
