As you know, I’m a huge Joker/Harley Quinn nut. This is a collection of some character designs that were (largely) scrapped before the final release of Arkham Asylum, and it’s a shame, because some of them are really good.

I love the center model. It’s updated and cool without losing the essential harlequin flavor.

“Mick Jagger/David Bowie body and clothing with Crispin Glover’s stretched face.” I’ve never heard it described that way, but I can’t argue. I think we may have stumbled upon the reason Crispin Glover never smiles.

If they had used the middle image, I’d be cosplaying her right now as I write this. Life is not fair.

They’re all excellent. Here’s the rest of the collection.

This is an article that I don’t want to see lost to the sea of obscurity, because it begs the very important question: If you remove the awesome graphics from today’s games, do they stand up to the storytelling of games of yore?

Playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, I am constantly reminded of my privileged status and the weight of my destiny by the nameless, faceless, hopeless masses fretting around me, just trying to get by.
We have spaceships and hovercrafts, they have…feet. Maybe a Lucas reimagining of a cow.
We have guns and lasers and supernatural powers, they have…sticks and rocks.
Maybe they have a job. Maybe they even have a tent to live in. Maybe, if they’re really lucky, they have what looks like an enormous, overturned teacup masquerading as a studio apartment.
They all live in constant fear of imminent death.
And then there’s our team – killing them all. Thanks for all the credits.

While playing Grand Theft Auto 4, Anthony stole what appears to be a Chevrolet Avalanche. Immediately after he sat down in the driver’s seat, the car radio started playing “Goodbye Horses.”

This may always be my favorite homage:
