Deathstroke and Shiva were in the game, yeah, but they were used terribly. Bossfights against Bad Guy Batman With Swords and the best fighter in DC should have been amazing, but instead they just pop out of nowhere, go out like scrubs and then are never seen again (except for Deathstroke doing pushups in his cell, I guess). I spent the entire game expecting Deathstroke to come back out for a real fight, or for the next chapter of the multi-part Shiva sidequest to unfold, but it never happened.

Finding it hard to care about another Batman game.

Especially if it ends up being cross platform.

I'm finding it hard to believe that this will only be on PS4/Xbone. Not happening, sadly. Too much of an install base.

They've built up a decent framework for future Batman games with Arkham City - I doubt they will come up with a jump like Ayslum-->City.

I'm still waiting for him to finish Fell. :

The clunky looking Batman of Asylum and City needs to go.

Well, I wasn't as sick of the series as I thought I would be when I played Origins.

That's not really much praise though. I think I would always be down for a good batman game and Rosksteady really created the mold for Batman.

I'll probably play this no matter what but I don't know much I can be excited.

Which is one of the many things WB did better, even given the existing constraints of Rocksteady's design. I loved Asylum/City, but Rocksteady's vision of the universe is way off for me.

Yeah, let's not push it now. Beside their uncanny attachment to "beefy" builds, their vision of the DC universe and his characters is remarkably on spot.

He means cross-gen. And he's right. We need to see if, freed from the shackles of PS360, Rocksteady can wow us again, or if it'll just be more of the *yawn* same.

Sexy box art. Drivable Batmobile massively hinted at, I can dig it. Harley Quinn is the playable guest this time around. Most importantly... the name on the box is Rocksteady.

Was hoping the box art would be Gotham burning or something though. Really wishing they'll go all out. EDIT: Actually is that Gotham exploding in the background?

Batman #ArkhamKnight is the explosive finale to the Arkham series. Scarecrow returns, with villains like Penguin, Two-Face & Harley Quinn.

Batman: Arkham Knight is set in Gotham City and introduces an uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which will be drivable in the game

GOD YES. An amazing game to conclude the storyline, then expand the DC Universe with other characters.

Hopefully the end of the Arkham series which will lead on to a new series involving more of the DC universe.

Exciting, though I'm bummed in a way because I don't have a next gen console or a powerful PC and I don't have much money. If only you could rent game consoles as well as games.
