What the fuck did I just watch?

TF2 + Batman + Halloween = ?

Edit: Then again, they crossed Batman with an FPS. I think some level of genius must be at work here.

batman doesnt use guns so the whole premise is completely flawed. completely unimpressed.

I love that everyone bitches about shooters all looking the same, then when a developer tries anything new people freak out about that.

Would you prefer the game to be all brown and populated with bald space marines?

How about just not being made?

Well if Valve would get over their issues and release an XBLA/PSN TF2 package with all of the DLC then there wouldn't be a need for it. But as they won't, console gamers could use a TF2 clone or two.

Guys I don't think you really need to worry about monolith, I mean there a big studio, and this is just a small downlaodable game, I am sure there working on something more serious as well.

If they were so interested in making a team based shooter on a licensed property, I would have preferred Green lantern, use ring constructs as weapons and gadgets.

Could have been.

Green, blue, pink, vs orange, red, yellow.

Never going to get a good GL game.

TF2 knockoffs are pointless... you can't emulate the constant, unparalleled post-release support and spirit that Valve has given this game. The whole evolution of the game is part of what makes it so popular even 3.5 years after release.

How is this related to Batman again?

It looks awful.


It's just a fun setting, that allows the developers to go nuts within the world. I think this game looks like alot of fun. I really don't see the hate.

Ech, as Arkham Asylum and Arkham City try to raise the Batman license out of a pretty horrible video game past, stuff like this brings it right back down.

What the fuck is this terrible looking carnival aesthetic. Compared to Arkham City, this looks like absolute shit.

If there would be a Batman FPS, it should be Splinter Cell spies-vs merc style. Play as Batman, Catwoman, Nightwing, Robin, etc in third person, or play as a villain in first person.

Why is this even being made, who wanted a Batman FPS?

If it's good I'm down though, I like Monolith.

I thought I might want to play this game from what was released a couple weeks ago. I don't want to play it anymore.

Ugh... When there were first rumors of a Batman downloadable game, I was thinking a HD side-scrolling platformer with production values akin to Shadow Complex and Bionic Commando and with a heavy emphasis on hand-to-hand combat.

That would have been cool.

I'm intrigued. Looks like old school deathmatching coupled with some funky gadgets. Hope it plays well.
