"Here."
"I only saw up to five guys in a fight at once; but the demo guy said they had gotten the count up to 15. By launch, Rocksteady hopes   to bump that to 20 so the Combat portion of the game will be even crazier."

Possible 20 on 1 fights could turn the combat into a fantastic riot. : )
I was looking forward to this game as soon as I heard Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy were working on it, but now It looks like I have a few more reasons to smile...

Again, I say:  God of War - Batman Edition.  Just the same way that we got Splinter Cell - Batman Edition when Batman Begins got released.

I am really hopeful about this game . the thing that I really like about Batman : Arkham Asylum beside gameplay and visuals is the voice acting which seems pretty solid

Heath did a great job playing the psychopathic Joker, but yeah Mark is still the J Man.

Yeah I'll definitly be owning this game when it comes out.  I mean Mark Hamill was the perfect voice for The Joker.  I love the joker enough as it is and heath ledger play the joker awsomely in the dark knight movie.  Plus the fact that they got kevin conroy to play the voice of batman was perfect too.  I loved the 1990s batman cartoons.  The graphics are superb too.  I heard there using the new unreal engine too.

What? That wasn't me, Rose. You must be thinking of someone else! Actually, i thought Web of Shadows looked good in trailers, but I still had doubts about it. I have not even played that game and have little interest in doing so. Howeer, Arkham Asylum just looks so awesome, I think I may just pre-order it!

Oh great.  So not only do we have Batman trying to be God of War, Condemned, and Bioshock, but now it's got tons of context sensitive button mashing to do.  FUCKING GREAT!!!

*ugh*  This game is going to be a travesty with good voice acting.  =  /
