Default Batman Arkham Origins

Season Pass DLC has been announced

I'll be waiting to see how much of that pass is online only (as I don't see that I'll be playing much of that); If it's all offline content then I'm already sold.
But the Brightest Day skin is appealing, if only so that I can pretend I'm playing with Moon Knight

Since I don't need to make car payments now, I think I can safely pick this up, though LEGO Marvel Super Heroes coming out the same week will make my wallet grow thin.

Sounds almost exactly the same as Hammil to me.

Watched the Deathstroke trailer, and I have to say I'm a little disappointed that he's partly a Robin skin, because he shares a number of moves with the Boy Wonder. At least we get three skins of him (classic comic, Arkham Origins, and Injustice). I won't touch the classic, because I find it disgusting overall.

Just finished a session of challenge maps in anticipation of Origins, and while there were a few mistakes, I did pretty well (even topped my personal best on Custom Freight Train!).

So I just got the game about three hours ago (had to clean up and eat dinner), but I really love how it hits the ground running: you have access to a very fast, very combat-savvy Batman, with moves like the Beatdown (for armored thugs) available right away.

The upgrade system is a skill tree instead of the flat style from the last two games. It's actually pretty impressive.

The combat is perfectly fine, and I was even able to counter right after finishing off an enemy with a ground takedown, which in Asylum was unthinkable and in City was something that took a bit of practice and some luck. You're also graded on how well you do in combat (no stealth as of this moment), with Apex Predator being the best and Legendary just below that.

Not that anyone will be surprised, but EscapistMagazine.com has an article up at the moment detailing that WB Montreal had serious doubts themselves about their ability to make a great game.

They mention how fans of Rocksteady's work expressed serious dismay that anyone other than Their Precious Favorite was handling the game. The studio itself also wondered if it had bitten off more than it could chew.

Personally, I find this line of complaints and doubt from the fans to be asinine. Rocksteady adapted Batman; they did not create much of anything, and Asylum, while a great game overall, has its flaws. Even City has some very noticeable drawbacks. The idea that someone else shouldn't be given the reins or cannot do as good or better than the previous developer is an incredibly stupid notion.

Bethesda did an amazing job on Fallout, which was not originally theirs.
343 Industries succeeded Bungie.

If all someone hears are doubts, then confidence is lost and poor quality is created. I'm glad that WB Montreal made this game.

I got it yesterday and played it for a few hours, it's a great game and so far Ive only encountered two flaws that aren't really flaws.
#1. It annoys me that White Lantern Batman is only available in Multiplayer but I can put up with that
#2. The switched the button scheme around and that drives me crazy but eventually I'll press the correct buttons

When a specific creation is made so well by one team, it's only human to wonder if this new team can continue that excellence. Nothing wrong with expressing doubt.

It wasn't doubt, it was severe denial and slander. "Doubt" is sugarcoating it. Makes me sick.

It was doubt. I had never heard of WB Montreal and wasn't sure if they could produce a good game. When I found out it was an "origin" story I became even more skeptical. With that said, the game is good. Not as good as Asylum or City but its good. I considered Asylum and City perfect, as I didn't have any issues with them. Origins has A LOT of slow down and framerate issues that can some times make the game unplayable during huge crowded fights. I got so frustrated with this last night I just turned the game off. From what I have played so far (about 5 hrs in) I give it a 8/10.

Maybe you need a new graphics card?

EDIT
I just realized that I've never finished Harley's Revenge. I'm currently rectifying that.
By the way, steam gives out Arkham City GOTY to everyone who bought the standard Arkham City, because they only changed the GOTY version to work with steamworks instead of GFWL. Sadly the old savegames don't work with the steamworks version anymore :-(

New graphics card? I'm not playing this on PC. And there have been reported frame rate issues with other gamers as well. Check out gamefaqs or youtube.

On another note, I've encountered more glitches in this game than the other 2 combined so far. I had to restart the Mad Hatter portion 3 times because I could not move. Sometimes my counter doesn't respond as well. Frustrating.

Gamestop gave me 3 codes but I think there´s a duplicate unless there's 2 different Bane's Forces Bundle
