Huh. Disappointing that the only Batman skins are the ones from Arkham City and the default Arkham Origins one. The new Robin is kickass though and I like it a lot better than Arkham City Robin.

There's an awful lack of Batman Beyond in that video.

I can't tell if this game is an OCD's wet dream or worst nightmare.

ps game rocks. Playing it on hard from the get go and you have to earn every fight, especially Deathstroke's

Can anyone tell me how to claim the DC one million/red son suits on PS3? It's not letting me input my information in the console (it did for Injustice though).

Man I'm never going to get the unseen predator thing done.

Plus the challenges really seem to expect you to do them at certain story points, so if you don't you fall behind prime opportunities to do certain things.

The game really gets tense (read: amazing) when you handicap yourself by not using detective vision AND making sure you're unseen. It really isn't that much harder, you just have to be way more patient.

This game is a blast. When I figured out the test with the three doors, I felt both really smart and really stupid at the same time.

Yeah, I'm aware of that. I have access to: Blackest Night Batman and Batman One Million. Not any of the ones from the Season Pass.

How did you get these suits to appear in game? I logged in with my WBID, both on the site and the ps3, and got nothing.

Question: I'm already in the Royal Hotel in a predator encounter with Bane's goons. Is there another predator room I can use to achieve worst nightmare rank 6? also, are there predator rooms post-game?

Regarding the Worst Nightmare costume that was previewed before the game release:

The devs said that you get it for 100 percenting everything. Is that just for a single game? Or do you have to beat "I am the Night" mode as well? because holy hell, if so I will just kiss it goodbye.

Also, I wish the DC One Million suit didn't look at terrible as it does.

Plus, Terry isn't as hypercompetent as Bruce. Yes, he has some fighting skills, but he's often out of his depth. The show has great character development showing him going through training and becoming more competent, and eventually a good successor to Batman. It doesn't do a diservice to Bruce, but rather shows how hard he had to train to be Batman.

The show was definitely at its best when dealing with the fates of Bruce's rogues, but Terry-centric episodes like "Babel" and "Lost Soul" were awesome.

How soon will I get high level threat predator encounters in New Game Plus? If it's too far along, I might as will forget completing the Worst Nightmare track. What a slog. (not that the game isn't fun, it is; but drat what a long wait)

If I were you, take a break from the game (or be like me and don't) and delete that save file and play it from the start with a guide. There is no loving way I would figure out or remember to do Worst Nightmare without one, only because the guide will tell you YOU HAVE TO DO THIS ONE NOW OR FORGET IT... well, mostly for the first Bank encounter that you have to be careful with.

I've already done the really hard one (thanks deadshot). I'm on the 10th one, which is to complete a high-level threat predator room without being seen. I want that sonic shock batarang, but I don't know how badly.

Please punch me in the face.

I just ground through all the challenge medals except for the last predator and the corresponding campaign... and of course I need the sonic shock batarang to complete it. Which means I need to go into New Game+ and play a high threat level predator room to get it. What the hell, game?

I hope the movie-makers are taking notes because that is a drat fine Batsuit. Probably my favorite "real world" interpretation. City's was nice, and Origins was too bulky for my taste. I feel like Goldilocks; this one is juuuuuuust right.

I don't think those guys will be TYGER, since they were all hypnotized by Strange. The fact that they have Arkham logos definitely makes me think that they're with the Arkham Knight, though.

I want to say that Sin Tzu was voiced by the guy that played Shang Tsung in the MK movies, but I can't be sure without looking it up.

Also Jim Lee created him, which makes me wonder if Lee realized Sin Tzu was a horribly racist caricature.

Saw a gameplay demo they were holding at e3. Under spoilers for the wary.

Gameplay stuff:

- the city is crazy vertical now
- the batmobile does come with one button, but it certain areas you will need to create ramps for plot reasons to have your batmobile get there
- the batmobile comes with a winch that functions to pull things down like doors
- you can drive the batmobile remotely
- there are Batmobile Assisted Takedowns, which consists of Batman dragon punching a goon into the air and shooting a round into his gut
- environmental takedowns remind me of sleeping dogs; batman put a goon's head through a transformer/fusebox thing
- there are also counter throws
- martial artist types return but with swords this time
- you can go from gliding straight into a vent seamlessly with one button (looks great)
- Fear Takedowns function as mini qtes; you activate fear takedown from a prompt and then press a button to takedown each goon


story stuff:

- Arkham Knight looking for revenge against Batman
- claims to know all of Batman's techniques
-voice sounds a lot like Payback from Batman Beyond
- Defers to scarecrow
- trains army in Venezuela
- whiny and smug
-scarecrow has enough fear toxin to cover the entire East coast


looks unbelievable.

edit: added fear takedown info

It's hard to imagine they'd be willing to take a rating hit over DLC content like that. An M-rating does impact your sales.

Plus The Joker had lethal takedowns in the PS3 Arkham and that didn't hit the rating at all. He straight up shot guys.
