Warner Bros. Prepping Downloadable, First-Person, Multiplayer...Batman Game? [UPDATED]

#101 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7595 posts) -

Part of me wants to be interested in this and not just join in with the naysayers, instantly dismissing the idea..  But it does very much sound like they're just abusing the franchise.  Take a popular series like Batman and mix it with a very popular game genre, regardless of whether or not it fits or even just basically works on any level.

Maybe the developers are actually really passionate about it.. but I can't see this as anything but corporate whoring.

If the focus is around imitation batman/joker gadgets, bombs, antics etc. then count me in.

Is there really room for this?

There is regular ass batman, russian martian batman, and green lantern batman.  Who is the fourth batman?

Fake Batman is better than no Batman at all.

Guys! It's game where you don't get to play as Batman!

God this sounds stupid

Alright..sounds pretty random.
Like they were actually making another unrelated game, but forced it around Batman suddenly.
(seriously an army of gun wielding Bat-men or "Jokerz"??)

Don't like the sound of this

#122 Posted by Kandycane2029 (517 posts) -

So... Do you at least get to play as Regular-Ass Batman?

I see WB has brought out the milking truck.

#126 Posted by flufflogic (321 posts) -

Well, he has an army in Dark Knight Returns, so...

#127 Posted by Volkodlak (125 posts) -

Hmm, seems like a massive stretch to have this Batman licensed but Monolith do typically do good work.

I don't know about this. There are plenty of things to do with the real Batman, I don't understand why we have to unleash an army of wannabes. Kinda diminishes his exclusive nature, doesn't it?

Craziness I tell you!
