Pretty sick CG trailer!

Also I'm Back on board with this now that Kevin Conroy is back!

Posted by Oldirtybearon

I'm really not digging how modern artists try to make Batman's outfit look like body armour. It doesn't work. Steel plating or kevlar or whatever it's supposed to be doesn't mesh at all with his stealthy predator shtick. It worked in Injustice because that Batman was in an all out war with Superman, but here it looks out of place.

Hopefully they bring back the Arkham City alternate skins scheme. I'll gladly take any Batman aside from the one Origins designed.

That sure is a CG Batman trailer.

Hope this game is good.

BATMAN!

I hear Ezio is doing Batman and Conroy is just 'in the game' OH and Troy Baker Joker. No lie.

Really nice snow in that CG trailer. Also, first rule of martial arts movies - as soon as the bad guy draws a bladed weapon he can no longer score the hits he was allowed when it was hand to hand. Real convenient that the assassin was using a nonlethal weapon for that first solid hit he got. Why did he bring a bo, again?

Too much armor on Batman. It's supposed to be a suit and he's slowly starting to resemble a football player with a cape.

That said the trailer was really great and sets up an interesting premise for what I assume will be gameplay videos to come.

Puuurty cool trailer, not gonna lie. Some gameplay would have been nice, but I think we all have a decent idea of how this game's going to look anywhoo.

Edited by drumpsycho89

@rmanthorp: ah Dam! Looks like your right! Although this would suggest cut scenes with older batman maybe? Like him telling a story or something. might be kool!

There is just something awesome about the Batman

Posted by Benny

Trailer is fucking awesome, nothing to do with the game though!

Posted by CaLe

I'm really interested in hearing Troy Baker's Joker. Really cool trailer, seems they're giving this game as much care as the previous ones--which I wasn't expecting to be honest.

That container Batman kicked said Queen Industries on it. Have they said Green Arrow is in this?

Batman is not voiced by Conroy. Batman is voiced by the dude what played Ezio.

Troy Baker is doing the Joker, btw.

Well when the game was first announced it was rumoured to be featuring the main Justice League, so maybe.

Pretty nice trailer, kind of worried that it's not made by rocksteady but just have to wait and see.

Badass. Batman is just the coolest, I hope this game is as enjoyable as the others.

Posted by churrific

I'd watch a full cg DC movie if they made one.

Who's the skull dude?

Posted by Meowshi

The villain lineup is fucking awesome. Black Mask, Deadshot, and Deathstroke are much more interesting than another game focusing of Two-Face, Joker, and the goddamn Penguin.

Edited by Meowshi

If any hero should be decked out in armor, it's Batman. If he really wanted to be a stealthy ninja he wouldn't dress up like a giant caped bat. He's a fistacuffs brawler with incredible technology.

Black Mask.

That bullet said AmerTek. Little easter eggs like that makes me excited about who's making this game.

Posted by MeatSim

A CG trailer is not gonna make me care about your super hero origin story.

Posted by MindChamber

Fuck, I wish the atcual batman movies were directed like that. And hellyes bring me that Batman returns Christmas motif.

Posted by Bakumatsu

Well guess I have to go finish Arkham City.

Posted by dOm_CaTz

so shane black directs arkham origins.

Edited by TheManWithNoPlan

The trailer got me really excited. I hope the game does the same.

Posted by BSw

This looks ridiculously good. Very nicely done.

Posted by Gaff

Looks purty. Though distinct lack of gameplay footage.

And I understand the need to connect this to the wildly successful Arkham games, but this is stretching it.

How so? Judging by gameplay descriptions and previews out there, this looks like it's going to be designed very similarly to how Arkham City functioned. Plus it's set within the 'Batman: Arkham' video game canon at that.

I just had a Batgasm.

Well, in the sense that it no longer signifies the location of the game, sure. But Batman: Arkham is a brand name, and the gameplay is distinctive enough from other Batman video game properties out there that I think it makes sense to carry the name.

Posted by Yagami

I hope the fighting in the game resembles that of what Rocksteady Studios did when they made Arkham City/Arkham Asylum. That is without any doubt the most fluid fighting mechanic in a game, ever.

Posted by Bane122

Sounds like they got Ron Perlman to return as Deathstroke, awesome.

Edited by HatKing

I just get too much of the 'cash-in' vibe to even pretend I'm interested. Maybe I'm a cynic.

Posted by EvilNiGHTS

So wait, Batman killed all those dudes?

Edited by Reisz

I hope they didn't go down the prequel route just so Joker could still be a primary villain, I was stoked with how they left the ending of Arkham City.

Looking forward to the alternate costume pre-order DLC, I have a hard time picturing that armor being the suit that Bruce would wear before the Arkham Asylum spandex, Not Cool. Why does my nerd brain force me to fixate on this stuff!

Posted by Meowshi

No. -_-

But he opened a case of explosives in a warehouse full of unconscious dudes, which happened to blow up the warehouse. Looks a little fishy to me!

Posted by mabans

I see a lot of people re commenting how "Batman's armor is too much" and how it wouldn't work but no problem with the idea of a super steroid (no idea what the juice is called) infused monster or a armor up assassin who is able to do handstand 540s off a wall but batman looking too armored? WHOA WHOA WHOA!! Now you're taking me out of the fantasy. I'm with HatKing I'm very wary not even so much because of the story design or anything else. It's just.. Rocksteady isn't making it. I really don't want ti to be bad. =)

Edited by PhilESkyline

Pretty rad trailer. Forget the gameplay, I'll be satisfied with the CG videos.

Edited by Hewitt

Anyone else hope that you play as the assassins instead of Batman?

Posted by Sammo21

@drumpsycho89: When did that get confirmed? I swore he was officially out?

I'm not a hundred percent certain, but I think that might be Fred Tatasciore, otherwise known as Baird from Gears of War; he's played Deathstroke many times before. Ron Perlman, on the other hand, is a relative superstar…

Posted by Bane122

@catarrhal: You may be right, it's hard for me to tell definitively. I know Perlman played him in the Teen Titans cartoon, though, and he does do a good bit of voice work so it's not impossible.

Posted by Hef

You know what, I'm glad they're going a little deeper this time and not just going to bane, poison ivy, joker and the usual crowd.

Call me cautiously optimistic. You know, even if there was no gameplay.

Posted by Downloaded

Good. Fucking. Trailer.

Edited by Colourful_Hippie

Hard for me to care about a game over a CG trailer.

You do in the DLC

Edited by posh

from what various outlets have been saying (including jeff) i don't really care about this game but i'll still buy it, maybe a few weeks after it comes out and the price is a bit lower. sounds like more arkham city, and i still have arkham city to get 100% in. hopefully they'll have way more main villains in the game and make the encounters with them more interesting. the deadshot and zsasz stuff from arkham city was really tame, the mr. freeze fight was more interesting but pretty frustrating, the last joker fight was unimaginative and the riddler stuff had too high of a barrier to entry. i can't really remember the other encounters.
