Trailer showing off some of the combat in the soon to be relased game. looks like a fun game and something for us nerds to drool over as we play as batman fighting all his classic villians

why this wasn't relased alongside the dark knight movie is beyond my business understanding.

I tried the demo and I hope I'm just missing something. It really is the first Batman game that isn't juts bat-sprites pasted over a Bat-pisspoor-beatemup, so I really should feel more - but it's just "grapple, grapple, kill." And it really is the worst example of screaming "Another twenty people just died because of you, Bathole, and this is only the demo! SHOOT HIM!"

Still, the silent kills are awesome enough I'll probably pick it up and playthrough during the inevitable Steam sale (I have a magic ability to trigger Steam sales just after buying games, so this time I'm going to wait.)

It gets a little better once you get more gadgets. But it's not a great game so much as it is a great Batman simulator. It's not that hard, but it's cool to do all kinds of shit to fuck with people.

I think if you focus more on how awesome it is to be Batman and less on how good or bad the game is, you'll probably enjoy it more.

It already came out for the console. Too bad I'm holding out for the superior pc version to ship next month.

Hey, I didn't know they were using Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil for the voices. I'll almost definitely be buying this now :O

this game has amazing presentation, story, graphics, etc. etc. etc. just the gameplay is super duper streamlined (which is kinda okay) but can be limiting at times. but PG said it best: it's just fucking awesome to be batman

the challenge maps are hella fun though

I dropped $98 on the wal-mart exclusive collector's edition. I WANTED THAT BATARANG!

I have yet to play it, though.

Great game until

SPOILERS



What I think is the final boss.

They stole from The Batman. THEY STOLE FROM THAT UNHOLY CRAPFEST THE BATMAN WITH THE BEFFY JOKER SHIT.

WHY?!?!

It would have been more awesome if it was a fight ala Batman 1989 or Mask of Phantasm with Bats and Joker going at each other mono e mono

Spoilers!


And yes, the last fight is lame. But the bosses didn't really impress as much as the stealth anyways.

Found this on Destructoid:

Quote:
Good anti-piracy measures are hard to find. At best, it can be an inconvenience for legit purchasers of games while other methods like SecuROM are almost universally loathed by gamers. It seems that to protect their latest title, Batman: Arkham Asylum, developer Rocksteady is taking a decidedly different approach.

Over at the Eidos forums, a poster showed up with an innocent query about why Batman's cape refused to open, allowing the Dark Knight to glide over a room filled with poison gas despite pressing the assigned key. Outed as having downloaded a leaked copy of the game by another user -- Arkham Asylum has yet to release on PC and no portion of the demo features a gas-filled room -- the forum admin hopped into the thread to mention that this is not actually a bug but a feature to prevent piracy:
The problem you have encountered is a hook in the copy protection, to catch out people who try and download cracked versions of the game for free.
It's not a bug in the game's code, it's a bug in your moral code.
Brilliant move, Rocksteady. It's nice to see that you are willing to go to a little effort in protecting your software instead of relying on annoying and sometimes gamebreaking methods. Kudos.
