Isn't it just the same tease as the end of the first game?

It occurs to me, since they were talked about earlier but I don't remember seeing it mentioned, but the Arkham games just released on GOG, as part of their current sale. $5 for the first three and $10 for Knight. They also have the Telltale Game and the Lego Batman games.

This is one part where Origins stands head and shoulders above Knight. I was pissed at Knight's Deathstroke fight. How could they mess that up that badly?

Rocksteady Exec 1: Okay so which of Batman's villains will we put into the game today?

Rocksteady Exec 2: Right. While this guy is technically a DC villain, he has fought Batman a few times. I say we put in Deathstroke.

Rocksteady Exec 1: Brilliant. He's got an arsenal of weapons and gadgets, he's an expert hand to hand combatant and he has the perfect motivation to be brought into this plot since he is a mercenary. We even have the perfect blueprint for how the fight works by copying the fight from Arkham Origins. Everyone agrees that was one of the best parts of that game.

Rocksteady Exec 2: Sure. But what if, instead of doing that, we just put him into a tank, make it unfun and generic as possible and just call it a day.

Rocksteady Exec 1: I like it. Hey wanna take this Sony money, buy some cocaine and pound nails into our dicks?

Rocksteady Exec 2: Hell yes!

Fin.

Cool. I didn't know that the Telltale Batman games were still available. I downloaded them after the company went under and kept them on my PS4.
If I can still download them I won't have to copy them over to my PS5 for Christmas.

It was pretty obvious from the gameplay trailer, but "Gotham Knights co-op means it has 'entirely redesigned' combat from Arkham". Which... hm. Nothing they've said has made me turn around on my initial thoughts, namely that the story trailer got me super hyped and then the gameplay trailer basically killed it all. Maybe if we get a new gameplay trailer that doesn't look as rear end, but man, I'm tired of "and now we're co-op!"

I love co-op gameplay, there was a pretty dark period in gaming in the 2000s where basically no game was co-op, even series that had traditionally always been.

Gotham Knights looks like garbage though.

I remember that time, and frankly it's good those days are past. I always preferred single player, so it didn't bother me much, but now we have the opposite problem with games that were traditionally single player suddenly having co-op shoved in. To be fair, it's not as bad as when the trend started (Dead Space 3? Resident Evil 5 and 6?) but it still feels like them trying to get multiplayer money out of single player games to me.

Plus, as you say, it looks like garbage.

Resident Evil 5 is great.

The Arkham Knights devs have said that the game is being balanced for single-player play as well, but I'm a little skeptical about that. The damage numbers that pop up when you're fighting enemies is enough to make me feel like the game is going to be a dragged out Games as Serve-like affair. I hope I'm wrong, because I'd love to play a whole game as Nightwing and Batgirl.

But a nightmare to try and play solo. RE6 tried to fix that by giving AI partners infinite ammo and health (I believe, the only time I remember a partner dying was when Helena got stuck on some zombies and got creamed by an ambulance), but it was still awful and I could not complete Chris's campaign with an AI Piers because he would not do the thing he needed to do when he needed to do it.

I hope Gotham Knights manages to make its combat good, but that gameplay video just looked so bad. I hope they release a new one soon, so we could see kinda where they were with their work, but those damage numbers and Batgirl doing a finisher and the guy getting back up because he had the tiniest sliver of health... I'm a little sceptical. Which is a shame since, as everyone else has said, the elevator pitch of being able to play the Batfamily is one I really want to be good.

Yeah I couldn't handle RE5 when it first came out, but last year I used a trainer to give the partner infinite ammo and health and it was much more fun.

I just got tired of the repetitive audio responses and prompts. Game would have better if it had made the co-op optional. I wound up just using my partner as an item mule but I remember some parts when I was trying to go sniper or semi stealth she'd gently caress up my plan by engaging or running somewhere I didn't want her.

I can't think of the last game with an AI controlled partner that really added to my experience.

Speaking of Arkham Knights, why not just set up the levels and the areas to where you can pick the character you want from the batcave and then go kick rear end according to your play style? Have SOME puzzles or areas where you totally NEED Nightwing or whoever abutnd have it so each area has poo poo that only ONE character can solve or access? Or, better yet, one character works thru obstacle/puzzle/area number 1 or unlocks/raises/disables something and then another comes in and finishes the solution?

Forced op is never really fun IMO. Especially online unless you're with a group you know.

Don't take me saying I couldn't handle it as anything - RE5 was mostly a shooter and I am God awful at shooters. I'm OCD so I loving love puzzles and patterns in RE1 and 2 but once timing and aiming comes into play I'm terrible

We know that the Venom symbiote takes on certain features of its host. It has the spider symbol and web-slinging abilities because of Peter Parker, and it got super jacked because of Eddie. So either Peter or Eddie had to be double-cheeked up in order for Venom to acquire that physiology.
