Nice to see longer official gameplay demos. I hate the super short ones that pervade the preview scene.

Posted by Sergotron

May seem like your still doing the same stuff over again. But that stuff is being Batman, and being Batman is pretty badass.

That dude that isn't Kevin Conroy sure sounds a lot like Kevin Conroy.

That framerate is rough.

Posted by Pr1mus

The framerate has to be a video problem right? They wouldn't be showing this would they? I mean i know the standards for decent framerate have gone way down in the last 2 years but this is painful to watch...

Seriously why would they put this out?

@chaser324: And Troy Baker's Joker is a nearly pitch-perfect impersonation of Mark Hamill. So much for "they'll sound different because they're younger." It seems the casting is more about saving a few bucks than for creative reasons.

Those Batman games sure were good. This'll be a good birthday gift for me in a couple weeks, I suppose.

Green man gaming is offering 25% off on pre-orders for the game this week (bringing the price to $37) for anyone who has been thinking about getting it.

Anyway, the game looks really fun I just hope that frame rate is the video and not the game itself...

Nice, we get to go to the Batcave.

Posted by Lysergica33

I have had enough of these Batman games now. Won't be playing this one.

That luscious tan... those ruby lips...

This video game's version of Alfred is pretty discomforting. His dead eyes... Alfred's been using Brand X.

Gordon kinda sounds like Adam West. That's....that's not, right?

Eugh, this series is turning into another Assassin's Creed... I'm outskies! :s

I was starting to think it was something on my end, glad to know my computer isn't about to explode.

Dat Batman.

Posted by Video_Game_King

I'm not watching this until somebody can confirm that the narrator narrates with a rough Christian Bale Batman impersonation.

Posted by CollegeGuyMike

Oh my that lip animation and framerate is teeerrriibblleee.

Posted by Larsa

Haha that framerate, this has to be a problem with the video, right?

Edited by Veektarius

I came into this video pretty optimistic about this game, but the blatant reuse of assets - in apparently inappropriate places, no less, and some of the ridiculous scenarios set up in this video... I've gone all the way to the other side of that fence.

PC it is for me!

That one narrator guy is really pushing it trying to sell that Batman is all alone. Seeing as how he has worked alone in the games, I'm not really seeing why we should view this Batman as existing in desperate isolation

Considering how Arkham City ran on consoles, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the game itself.
Also I can't stop chuckling at how they constantly try and re-inforce that because this is set in a different time period that it's somehow TOTALLY NEW AND DIFFERENT while the gameplay footage is the same stuff we've all seen before in Batman games. Looks competent and functional as ever but the narration couldn't be any more full of shit.

Edited by MeatSim

I think would rather be doing Bruce Wayne stuff instead of more Batman stuff.

That game still looks kinda cool, but that framerate....

Well, since Kevin Conroy is working on the Batman game Rocksteady is doing I'm going to believe them when they say they wanted The B-Man to sound younger (feel free to debate whether it worked or not)... and Hamill had been saying for a while that he wasn't going to do Joker anymore -- it's my understanding they they got him back with the story that they wrote for B:AC -- so, they may save money using Troy but it's not because they could've gotten Mark and didn't...

Stop saying it!

Cannot disagree more. There's a tiny tinge of Conroy flavor but it's really not that close. Same with Baker-Joker.

Edited by drkscyde

Wow, i hope it's just the video and not that the framerate is that shitty.

Edited by CustomOtto

I have to assume it's just the video since it appears to be happening during cutscenes and when the map is up. I don't think they'd intentionally show the game off like this.

Posted by reelife

I love that police bug where he is watching batman but the dialogue is still about the TV... "YEAH right in the Yaw" *smock*

Batman "They made another one of these" Origins

Posted by CptBedlam

Didn't realize this game would be THIS similar to the previous one(s). Hmm, it almost looks a little too much like AC for my tastes and I'm not hungry for more of that to be honest. At least from AA to AC, there was a notable visual shift from the island to the city.

Edited by OldManLight

Man i could enjoy or at the very least deal with the non-Kevin Conroy Batman, the non-Mark Hamill Joker, and the recycled gameplay, but that framerate is eff'ing atrocious.

Posted by The_Nubster

Thousands of XP for fights with just a few goons? Bluh, numbers inflation. Arkham City made getting above 1k XP for an encounter extremely satisfying.

Posted by vikingdeath1

Pretty sure he said "The Dark Knight" way more than he said "Batman" throughout that whole video.

I appreciate how short their Pre-order from gamestop shot at the end was.

Granted the numbers are arbitrary. They could be any amount and be hard/easy to get depending how it's programmed.

edit: Oh man Batman looks short and stumpy.

Edited by iAmJohn

I'm really glad that pleasant Quebequoi man was there to tell me how different this Batman is, because otherwise this would look completely indistinguishable from Arkham City except for the ludicrously bad framerate. Hey, more power to you if that's what you want, but I'd much rather wait to see what Rocksteady has in store than justify their lame expansion pack from the team that couldn't manage to decently port a year-old game to the Wii U.

Edited by Tennmuerti

Well the IGN Youtube video of the game has the exact same frame rate problems as the GB player one.

So unless they provided the video source files like this to everyone, it's the game.

(those prompts look like it's PS3 gameplay)

Looks like they just reskinned B:AC.

Posted by Humanity

I really liked Arkham Asylum and I thought City was good but I didn't like all the traversal and repeated goon encounters. This seems to be further distancing itself from what I initially really loved about the series.

Edited by Soniking

The part when he says Batman is going to be less brutal to police...we all saw him jump on a guy after a beatdown and smash his face in right?

Also when he's inside he pulls like a 23 hit combo on a cop. Cray. That little scene where the cops want to get the ransom from Black Mask for killing Batman is NOT enough justification for Batman. He's Batman, dealing with this crap is his eternal burden.

I'm hoping the PC version runs better, but that video almost sells me on the game. I really like the new Chris Redfield-ified Batman voice.
