Why play the Batman or Joker when you can create your own? Check out the ridiculous customization options that will be available in the downloadable online multiplayer shooter Gotham City Imposters.

When opposing street gangs take up the mantle of Gotham City's Dark Knight or Clown Prince of Crime, insanity ensues. Imposters will let players create their own cheesy costume and arm themselves with the sort of gadgets Bruce Wayne would come up with if he lived in a trailer park instead of stately Wayne Manor.

I mean come on, who hasn't wanted to strap springs onto their feet and bounce around? Maybe not into a bear trap, but hey, you take the good with the incredibly painful, and then you get shot in the face by a clown.
