"Can Batman defeat the Joker’s goons and solve a mystery before the public notices?" Comedy video group Mega64 looked to answer that question in this third video from its skits debuted at last month's Indie Games Festival/Game Developers Choice Awards (make sure to watch their previous Indie Man and Beatles: Rock Band clips).

Here, Batman protects the streets Arkham Asylum-style, emerging from the shadows to neutralize enemies and finding hidden clues, all while confused people eating ice cream watch the comic book character's antics. He even sets an explosive trap for one of Joker's thugs, and a pedestrian runs up to kick the scoundrel while he's down.

Mega64's Batman is the hero GDC deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll watch him because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.
