Twisted Metal: Arkham - Part 1
04/15/12 at 18:08:14
 

Setting: Arkham island in Gotham City, USA.

Ext. Outside the old Gothic prison for nutters called "Arkham Asylum" are two armed guards patrolling the entrance. They look around and notice a mysterious fog appear out of nowhere.

Arkham Guard 1 - What the fuck, where did this fog come from?

Arkham Guard 2 - Oh god, I hope Poison Ivy or one of those other supernatural freaks aren't behind this...

A shadowy figure appers behind the other guard and speaks...

Calypso - Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

Arkham Guard 2 gives out a startling scream and looks around but the fog ácreates confusion.

Arkham Guard 1 - Who said that? Show yourself, or we will open fire.

Calypso - Ah, I suppose you never saw Tim Burton's Batman, have you?

Arkham Guard 1 shoots at Arkham Guard 2 out of fright and kills him.

Calypso - That's no way to treat a co-worker.

Calypso's eyes go red and he laughs. Suddenly the two armed guards vanish into thin air.

Calypso - Amusing. Now to find some new contestants for this years contest...

Int. Inside the penitentiary Calypso takes a look at some of the inmates in their cells. Some are muttering insanely, one is jerking off while shouting lewd things, another playing with his shit, and another is trying to remove his face with his with his fingernails.

Calypso - How intriguing. This prison reminds me so much of Blackfield. So many hopeless cases. So much fun.

A familiar burst of laughter is heard from a cell. It is Joker, arguably the most dangerous man in Arkham. Calypso approaches his cell.

Joker - Why, I haven't seen such a dashing looking man in Arkham in ages!

Calypso - How flattering, clown.

Joker - That burnt face of yours sure looks appetizing, mister...?

Calypso - Calypso is the name, Joker... and I run a special contest that I'd like you, and some of your friends to take part of.

Joker - What's in it for you?

Calypso - Me? Why Joker, it's about you. I know how you long to make Batman see "the funny side", is it? Enter my contest, kill everyone, and make your wish. You can wish that your rival, Batman, will finally laugh at your jokes, Joker... laugh at your murderous punchlines.

Calypso smiles. Joker looks intrigued.

Joker - Kill everyone, you say? Why, that DOES sound funny! HA HA HA HA HA HA.

The sounds of annoyed mumbling is heard from across Joker's cell. It is The Riddler, another loon.

The Riddler - Why should he get the only opportunities around here? He can't even make any of us so-called crazies laugh.

Joker - Oh shutup, you 2nd rater!

Riddler - What?!? I will not play 2nd fiddle to...

Calypso - Ah, Edward Nigma. You seek attention and appreciation for your brilliance, correct?

Riddler - Well, I AM a genius!

Calypso - Well, if you're so smart, why are you here?

Riddler - ...

Calypso - You, and the Joker, will be set free. You just have to enter my contest.

Riddler - When is freedom not free?

Calypso - When it needs to be granted.

Calypso snaps his fingers, and the cell doors for Joker and Riddler open.

Calypso - Time to get ready... for Twisted Metal.

Joker - What is that, a new music genre? Can I play the keys!? Oohh, I've been known to dabble! Or the triangle! Definitely good at that!

Riddler - Sounds more like a demolition derby contest of some sort.

Calypso - Very good deduction, Nigma.

Joker - Well, I want my Harley then.

Calypso - Harley-Davidson?

Joker - No! My hobby, Harley Quinn.

Calypso - Ah ha, yes, I was only joking. I know everything about the inmates of this asylum. Harley will be your gunner, Joker. Riddler, your gunner will Query, one of your two female accomplices. You'll drive any vehicle you wish, and tomorrow night, Twisted Metal will begin in Gotham City. There will be 10 other drivers. Kill them, and kill each other, and one of you will get your batty desires come to life.

Calypso's eyes turn red, and he, Joker, and Riddler vanish from the Asylum...

To Be Continued...

Interested, please write Scarecrow into this. His fear addiction and fear gas are way too perfect for this. Really nice job.

Especially interesting because ive been trying to get my Gotham City imposters character looking as close to Sweet Tooth as possible... Wish they'd make him a downloadable skin!

Not a huge buff on batman villian lineage, but don't Scarecrow and Joker not get along naturally? Not to the point of killing eachother but just to the point of tripping eachother up?

Actually, you're right, Scarecrow would be perfect for this, and him facing off with Mr. Grimm (another addict) would be great, so I will work him in the story. May take me awhile to continue and finish the story, but I'll try to aim for this weekend.

Scarecrow and Joker once partnered up in the "Knightfall" story only for Scarecrow to break the partnership and use fear gas on Joker - which unfortunately had no effect, so Joker proceeded to beat Crane up lol.

How is Gotham City Imposters going? I played the Beta, and it was pretty fun, but I wasn't too sold on it either, probably because Arkham City (& Asylum) spoiled me (and also reminded me of the importance of a great single player experience).

Where's Two-Face?  His good side would want to be free from his bad side.

Impostors is mediocre. It's fun when I'm having TM connect issues. Wish they would give us a toxic tooth style skin for it lol. For 15 bucks, it's worth it. Then again, I even have the sweet tooth mod in mod nation... So maybe I'm just a fan of crazy customization and cartoon-esque action. I prefer the more macabre titles.
