    Im just mad that its not coming out for the xbox 360 :'-( :'-(

    If it came out for PS3 and X360, it would just be a DLC of Arkham City, since they would be limited by the fact that the game would have to run on these consoles. Rocksteady even said that it was only because of the next-gen hardware that they were able to include many of the innovations of this game (a big-ass city, for example). Games need to improve.

    Fair play to WB that they are not pushing Rocksteady and are allowing them the time they need to produce the Arkham Asylum finale that we all want to see. The other Batman games are among the most played games on my Steam list and I don't think I'll be able to resist a release date purchase on this one.

    Final judgement will be reserved of course but I'm not loving the Arkham Knight villain. Given the saying about imitation and flattery I guess Batman should be flattered since this guy stole his bat ears and alias. Or is that the Dark Knight? Still, I'd rather he get his own thing.
  • Cruddi - June 16, 2014 7:51 a.m.

    I know I am late to this but f*** it, I didn't want the bat mobile in the game... At first but now I must admit the premise of this has made me purchase arkham city for the PC (although I 100% on 360) and try to 100% again lol
  • mothbanquet - June 4, 2014 7:34 a.m.

    Take your time, Rocksteady. We will wait.
  • alllifeinfate - August 25, 2014 9:53 p.m.

    I concur.

    I had a feeling that this game was going to be delayed, but I am glad they are taking their time to make it badass. I want to know who the Arkham Knight is? let's hope the man behind the armor isn't a past villian although I don't see this person as a woman since the design of the armor is male.
  • GOD - June 3, 2014 2:30 p.m.

    ...The Arkham Knight looks like a cooler Batman Beyond. I want a game where I play as him.
  • Fatherdeth - June 3, 2014 12:36 p.m.

    I wish they would just be honest about things and admit that they just didn't want to go toe to toe with Lego Batman: Beyond Gotham! Delays suck but it's better than getting a game not as good as it should or could be. Unless you die before it comes out.
  • Brett35 - June 3, 2014 11:06 a.m.

    I'd love if they kept civilians and had a watchdogs style of stopping crimes from happening to everyday people. But after the other Batman games I have no reason to complain or doubt.
  • BladedFalcon - June 3, 2014 10:56 a.m.

    And this surprises no one. Just as well, many are treating this game as the fir TRUE next gen game and whatnot, so for their own sake they better make damn well sure that it delivers.
  • Vonter - June 3, 2014 1:22 p.m.

    I'm surprised. I thought next gen would come this year. Seems not only Nintendo has trouble going next gen (in before pedantic remark, I mean everyone has been having trouble going to the next level respectively). I'm really curious what the Fall game is gonna be for the other two, since this one seemed like the biggest game for Fall.
  • BladedFalcon - June 3, 2014 2:36 p.m.

    Yeah well, the transition seems to have been rockier and taking longer this time than usual because AAA developers are too scared of taking risks anymore. They develop most of their games with current gen still in mind because the install base there is just way bigger than in new gen. (Great as the PS4 is doing, it hasn't passed the mark of 10 millions sold, whereas with PS3 they are over 80 million last I checked, maybe even higher by now) That, and sure enough, every developer never truly understands how to get the best out of a system in the first year, or even two. The problem the Wii U has isn't really the same though. True next gen or not, the PS4 and Xbone are still getting at least one or two big multiplatform releases while the Wii U gets shunned altogether for most of them, true next gen or not, again the Wii U is simply not attractive as a stand alone console for most people who only want, or can only afford once console per generation, and the fact that two years into it's lifespan, and the Wii U still hasn't been able to get a steady stream of games aside from what Nintendo itself makes, and it's clear to see that while yes, everyone struggles with a new console, Nintendo's always seem to suffer the most because of this.
  • Vonter - June 3, 2014 2:46 p.m.

    Still like you've said, if you like the games Nintendo makes it still has a value proposition... until the other two also have a third party that makes the type of games nintendo makes.
  • BladedFalcon - June 3, 2014 3:44 p.m.

    That, and Nintendo games have the problem that- Despite being undoubtedly very good, well made and polished for the most part, they are also almost always iterations from the same tried and true franchises. To be sure, even in iterations you can make great innovations and Nintendo has done so at times. But for better or worse, you know what to expect from their games, all zeldas feel alike, all 2D mario games feel alike, all donkey kong games feel alike. As such, I' pretty sure that makes a big part of why a lot of people (and not just me) feel like they can pass on Nintendo games, since they might feel that while good games, they aren't really missing wholly NEW experiences. Also, I know that's not wholly true and fair, and there is always exceptions, but it's a valid generalization, and most people coast on generalizations.
  • Vonter - June 3, 2014 7:32 p.m.

    IDK I suppose it's the same apathy like I have with shooters, mainly not giving another chance since it doesn't look different enough. That's why I brought the EA Sports, COD comparison, Nintendo still makes games I like and enjoy, still I think is the only one of these three fanbases that has a strong loyal fanbase. As a fan I'm assuming most people want Nintendo to imitate the hardcore or big name developers, mainly put cinematic storytelling (which they're freaking bad at doing if it's not tongue in cheek), an FPS or TPS (which aside from Metroid they haven't really tried to make one) and or having a game that looks realistic (which kinda have done with Epic Yarn and other games that use real materials for a cartoony game or Mario Kart 8 real-like lighting) Still the problem, like most big companies nowdays is that they haven't gone out of their comfort zone, and I suppose that's a legit claim from most people.
  • BladedFalcon - June 3, 2014 9:21 p.m.

    Yeah, I don't think anyone wants Nintendo to starts doing what everyone else is doing, I certainly don't want them to become an FPS sandbox or chest high cover shooter factory. But like you said, they don't really step much out of their comfort zone. I want them to take RISKS again, I want them to really push for truly new and fresh IPs, the last time they did that was with Pikmin... and that was fucking 13 years ago. And yes, I know they've created others like Wii Sports and Brain Age... but does anyone really feel like they are on the same level of iconic vale and personality that the rest of their IPs have? I shit you not, even with as few games as the Wii U has overall, if instead of a New Super Mario Bross Wii U and DK Tropical Freeze, they had created to completely different IPs that tried completely new genres or gameplay mechanics, I would be way more inclined to buy the system already. But as it stands, I simply don't feel inclined yet because as great as those games I mentioned might be... I already know what I'm missing.
  • Vonter - June 3, 2014 9:35 p.m.

    Ok, now, assuming next week they reveal something new and unique, what do you think it needed to be. I mean at the very least one game is listed as something completely new centered around the gamepad. Then is the NFC project they likely show in regards to how it'll work in different games. The last thing is mainly an assumption, that given the state of third parties I'm believing Nintendo will announce another collaboration ala Hyrule Warriors or another Platinum project. Zombi U and the Wonderful 101 despite being second party are nice experiments mainly panned by lack of advertising. Especially the Wonderful 101 which is a next gen Viewtiful Joe in almost every way.
