Arkham Origins wasn't a terrible game I think the two things that put people off on the game and ultimately had many skipping it when it first came out was that the game was broken. Literally, after you got to the open world aspect of that game, you would get stuck or trapped and could not move at all. The last thing a new studio was helming that franchise and you could kinda tell that while they put some new concepts into the game the fatigue gameplay you mentioned before was there.
I wouldn't say that at all. I felt the two problems with the game was the lack of improvement over Arkham City and the weird changes to the combat. I felt as though the combat was way more about hammering on the counter button than doing sweet combos.
Yeah I forget but there was a conversation on the forums when the game initially came out where we discussed about the combat not feeling right. With the previous 2 games the combat felt clingy and smooth you didn't necessary have to point your stick in the appropriate direction in order to counter a hit and pull off a combo. This one if you weren't facing the proper direction or your stick wasn't facing the proper direction of the enemy the counter didn't necessarily always go through. Just felt really uneven compared to the previous two games. That wasn't honestly a game breaker though just something you had to deal with. The bugs on the other hand that could kill hours upon progression did.

I think after you got to the open world aspect of that game alot of people would get stuck or trapped and could not move at all. I played that game well over a year after it came out on PC and yep Killer Croc still vanished part way through the fight and all of a sudden the audio would cut out. That game for being a AAA franchise had too many bugs that just squashed the gameplay for me. The last thing was a new studio was helming that franchise and you could kinda tell that while they put some new concepts into the game the fatigue of the gameplay was there that going through it felt like rehashing the same stuff you did in the previous games.
I will admit that the one bright spot to that game was the dlc Cold, Cold Heart. I really enjoyed that side story even though it kinda rehashed some of the concepts of Mr. Freeze from the Batman Animated Series.
Second best Turtles movie ever made? Did nobody see TMNT 2007??
I agree that film was alright, probably 3rd on my list. I actually enjoyed Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze as a kid and thought the super shredder was awesome. I actually remember my first day of school carrying aroung a tmnt II red pale lunchbox.
I'll admit I always found it creepy when the Turtles acknowledged they were attracted to April in the Nick cartoon and still find it creepy when they acknowledge it in the film. Have to admit though that the turtles really don't have that many significant turtle females out there except for maybe Venus.
