Is somebody going to make a new thread for release? This one is both pretty chunky and primarily about Origins. We're a week away now so if somebody's got the time and desire, they should probably get hoppin'.

needs two pages of thread title suggestions before that happens

Hell no, I ain't got that kind of time. I did just find out that despite being located inside a mall that closes at 10, my local Gamestop is doing a midnight release with pizza and tournaments! I'm gonna try to go and do horribly at whatever tournament they've got planned.

just make a thread with the title of the game and a video or two and the release date

why does every OP in games have to be a 10000 word post?

Someone should just make it without writing an OP that looks like a Prima guide. Everyone knows this game and what it's about.. you have the power to change Games.

Nope. They tossed you into the open world.

The Batmobile is not optional, you need it for missions and solving puzzles, but you still have all of Batman's mobility options including the glide and the super-speed grapple so I actually ended up just flying over most of the drat city when trying to get around.

Thug dialogue is now subtitled from a pretty ridiculous distance which is nice.

Remote hacking is no longer a minigame. Might be disappointing to people but it was just press-and-go from what I saw.

Two-Face, Penguin and I believe Black Mask based sidemissions. Firefly boss fight as people already know.

A weird side effect of how they're doing the game is that all the people on the streets are thugs, including the people driving around in lovely town cars or whatever. I saw someone ram into a car and send it skittering before like eight thugs piled out like it was a clown car. It was sort of hilarious honestly.

Thats cool. so what do the thugs do poo poo on the street or do they just kinda stand around like in city?

More gameplay and such. Also it's the first reference I can recall to Rocksteady acknowledging Origins exists from a game world standpoint. You'll find some of the items from the previous 3 games in the GCPD evidence locker.

From the new Arkham Knight thread (aren't we supposed to use that now? ):

ThermoPhysical posted:

Um...if you bought the Batmobile Limited Edition....

I am so sorry.

Apparently no one knew at UK's GAME or US's GameStop, Amazon didn't know and nor did any other retailer it just...happened without warning from WB or Rocksteady.

If you got this version, you will be able to get a full refund and (hopefully) can preorder another version.

To compensate, WB will give out the New 52 skin pack that was originally to be in the Batmobile/Batman statue edition for free to anyone who buys the game in any form.

Pretty much everyone says that the Batmobile sections are not as fun as they should be and there are some puzzles that force you to use the car. The dialogue is said to be bad (again) and plot twists predictable. Most importantly the combat and predator sections have more options.

Hmmmmmm.... I'll probably still get it because I need something new... But drat.

[Edit] the review text is not that condemning, just a little sad this isn't the Magnum Opus for Rocksteady.

First touch: Life.
Second touch: Dead again. Forever.

Yeah I found it absolutely weird (but predictable) that the Batmobile would be overbearing, overused and unenjoyable, and people still give the game a 90+ score.

Humans disgust me. Vile creatures.


I stopped following the other thread after spoiler tags started showing up just in case, so somebody probably already mentioned this somewhere before, but whatever. I've been replaying Arkham Asylum a little the last few days to ramp up to the new one and I noticed something pretty cool. The first shot of AA is a sky, then the batsignal appears and the camera slowly pans downwards to the same Pauli's Diner from the opening of AK that they showed at E3. They both start in the same spot.
