So, I guess that Arkham City got rid of GFWL, and my saves along with it?

No I mean, after they went into jail. They were just serving their time, trying to survive in a giant, cold prison with no food, with no guards to protect them from each other and run by crazy murderous people, and then a guy in a bat costume showed up and punched them all in the face.

Some of them actually run away if you walk up to them and others attack. It's up to you how you react to that.

I don't know about anyone else here, but I definitely get mildly cheesed when a reviewer gives a game I like + paid $50 for a bad score. Makes me feel ripped off.

Honestly, though, unless Origins is your first Arkham game, you should've known you were getting the same game over again.

Then why is it full price? Like that other dude said, City was expanded upon in almost every way. I watched a stream last night where the introduction to predator takedowns in Origins was ripped straight out of City and I just rolled my eyes and went to bed.

I've a quick question about Arkham City. I'm playing through it now and my current objective is to locate Ra's al Ghul and get a sample of his blood. Following the signal I've somehow found myself in the sewers underneath the restricted area en route to Wonder Tower, it seems, and suddenly I'm fighting Joker's goons who have captured some medical intern. Am I going in the right direction? It kinda feels like I'm not supposed to be down here yet.

It's been a while but I'm fairly certain you are heading in the right direction.

I leave them strung up because I refuse to believe that Batman would purposefully drop an unconscious man onto his head from several meters up.

I really think for the next installment they should (and I hate how this sounds) make it a tad bit more like the GTA series.

What I mean is let you patrol the city and tackle crime and plot hooks as you see fit, investigate crime scenes, beat the poo poo out of thugs and all that (sort of like they've done in the last two games), but also give you access to the Batmobile, the copter, the motorcycle, the boat and all that poo poo too. You could still keep the gameplay and the combat as tight as they've always been but maybe add a touch of mobility and a sense of really monitoring and controlling Gotham that, to this point, has been largely scripted and dealt with through cut scenes.

Origins touches on it some by letting you visit the Batcave and quick travel, for instance, but I think it'd be pretty fun to drive the tumbler through the waterfall out of the Batcave, wreck it somewhere, and then pull the motorcycle out of it, so long it's done done properly and didn't feel gimmicky or tacked on. Up until now, all of the vehicles are done via cut scenes and every time one happens, I find myself wanting to drive/fly whatever it is Batman is doing.

The open world aspect of City was terrible. I want them to go back to the tight feel of Asylum.

For me, the difference in the combat is the fact that there are moves that had i-frames in the previous games that don't in this one.

edit: in addition to the wonky counters etc.

I can't be the only person that made sure to beat up the room full of armed police in the visit to the GCPD instead of avoiding them with the remote claw. Should have been an achieve like Party Pooper.

What the hell do you have to do to get the "finish a predator challenge unseen" Worst Nightmare challenge, because it sure is poo poo isn't getting the "unseen" reward at the end of the encounter.

Part of it involves not using any loud takedowns at all. Not even on the last guy.

Every single one silent. I assume that them spotting a body is a deal breaker as well?

That's because the only place you can do #6 is the Gotham Bank, which only has two predator segments for the whole game.

So anyway, one of the most common complaints I've seen about Origins is that Black Mask is 'wasted' or 'done wrong'. Speaking as someone who doesn't know the comics, what is there to Mask that isn't in the game? During my (admittedly fairly brief) reading up on the guy he didn't seem to come across as much more than a criminal boss who was used as a scapegoat by his family, so murdered them and wore a mask made out of their coffin. That's...odd but doesn't strike me anything substantial and worth getting irritated by.

Bane in Batman and Robin, however...

I haven't got very far, but everything about the game feels "off". The combat timing is different. The collectables are actually stupid hidden GTA poo poo with no map. Some of the set pieces are cool, however.

I haven't got to the end of the Penguin in Origins, but his story in City was so good. The final confrontation where Batman just unleashes a 16 hit combo on him when a single punch probably would have sufficed was perfect after all the poo poo he'd been through.

There's a few things I don;t like about Origins after playing it a bit more. The change to the aerial move that was used for shield enemies is the worst because I played so much ranked fights in city that it;s automatic to try and abuse the iframes by flipping to another assailant, but if you do that in origins then you do an extra long animation whic results in a punch to the head. Also, the way batman gets into a fighting stance as soon as he sees an enemy pisses me off. There was nothing cooler than walking into a crown of mooks as calm as day and countering the first thug that attacked you and then unloading on everyone in self defence. Now, as soon as batman sees an enemy he squats down into this goofy martial arts pose. Boooo.

I just spent like 45 mins trying to beat deadshot while doing loud takedowns only to either die to dumb poo poo or set off the hostage murder and then I finally do it and I missed a takedown without realising. Please shoot whoever invented these challenges.
