New Bat Thread! Same Bat Forum! Here's what Wikipedia has to say about this game:

quote:

Batman: Arkham Knight is a 2015 action-adventure video game developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Based on the DC Comics superhero Batman, it is the successor to the 2013 video game Batman: Arkham Origins, and the fourth main installment in the Batman: Arkham series. Written by Sefton Hill, Ian Ball and Martin Lancaster, Arkham Knight is inspired by the long-running comic book mythos. Set one year after the events of 2011's Batman: Arkham City, the game's main storyline follows Batman as he confronts Scarecrow, who has launched an attack on Gotham City, causing a citywide evacuation. Scarecrow, with the help of the mysterious Arkham Knight, is also able to unite Batman's greatest foes in an attempt to finally destroy Batman.

This game is good. Lots of people don't like it because it's basically Grand Theft Batman, but I like it! The game has a lot of Batmobile driving and combat. It can get repetitive but it's also really well designed so the control of the Batmobile is super easy. I'm playing on Hard difficulty, I don't know if this affects the game at all (maybe you get more Wayne Points?) Thinking of doing 100% but jeez there are a lot of riddles and riddler trophies, so we'll see how we go.

I'll most likely have sweeroy and quite stretched out (willus) commenting with me (sometimes Tithin too). We're idiots! Please tell us all about how much we're idiots.

Let's get into it!

Fucking technology...

At least I HAVE THIS!


Oh? A new bell jar LP just after I finished watching Red Dead Redemption We ❤ Katamari? Don't mind if I do! Arkham Knight is probably one of my favorite Batman games, alongside Arkham City, I've 100 %ed the game twice, much like city and Asylum, and while I agree that a lot of the problems come from stuffing too much into one package, alongside the botched PC port, I think they made a fun game with several mechanics that were risky changes of formula. The story is... more comics batman with all that the idea entails, including its treatment of several characters, and the titular Knight is less of a villain and more of a pain in the rear end that you occasionally need to deal with, and I think they could have handled him better. But Rocksteady made a drat good game, and hopefully the LP will be the same.

This has the best Batmobile design probably ever, I would like to play this but I doubt it would run on my terrible rig.

Most people hate this game because the PC port was monumentally bad, like at release high end rigs struggled to run it because it was that bad. WB actually gave people credits on steam or free games because of the backlash. Even after the updates it still is pretty badly optimized. That mainly is why this game has such a bad name to it.

I'm pretty sure I picked it up on Steam Sale a few years after it was ported, I've never had any issues running it, although at a lower resolution than I'd prefer

nice, cool to get in on the ground on an Arkham LP. I just bought the Return to Arkham bundle for 20 bucks so i'm having fun going through it again

Arkham Knight was probably the most fun that I had with this series, probably because I played it on console and didn't have to deal with the unfortunate stuff about the PC version. It was probably the game where I felt most like Batman, but Arkham City is right there with it

Loving this.

I played it initially on my old pc that fell squarely into the "should have been able to run it" catagory but I struggled at times.

I should give it another go on my new pc now.

New Game+ is a lot of fun for this game, definitely worth booting it up and playing through to get some sweet difficult combat, unlike the bland stuff we've had so far (on hard!)

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

I do like that Oracle is able to fend for herself to some extent. It helps her not be as much of a Damsel in Distress.

I think I recall seeing a comic page with her holding a pair of escrima sticks while in her wheelchair.

The Batgirl DLC just has her engaging in fisticuffs, which is also fine.

i dunno about the video game series character but in the comics she was originally batgirl before she got paraplegic and became Oracle so it makes sense that she's not completely defenceless
