that's cool, I really like the suit, but I am afraid it would be a buggy mess. The game turned me off from purchasing any DLC for it. Shame

Fix the game before you start making DLC you bunch of money grubbers

Posted by w0nd

the hilarious thing is they acknowledge the bugs and admitted to not fixing them but instead will release DLC. I have never been able to get into an online match to this day LOL but apparently I'm not missing much?

They were obligated to make and release a certain amount of DLC. Most game companies are, especially when dealing with the third game from a triple A title of a licensed property.

Then there is also the the Season passes for DLC.

Most if of the dlc is planned from the conception of the game.

As much as I love the batman games and Freeze being one of my favorite villains… I'm gonna have to pass on DLCs =/ I'm just not feeling it this time.

Are the cries about bugging all about online or does the actual game jam up on you?

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

@iaconpoint: I've never played it online and my game freezes up all the time and last time I played it wiped my save file and I've never played it since.

Posted by iaconpoint

@jonny_anonymous: Oh, that's a no bueno. I was outta pocket when it was released so I'm waiting for the ultimate or goty edition and haven't played it but that's not good at all.

Edited by JonSmith

Oh, right. This game exists.

Shame.

Don't get all the nagging and complaining.

Origins was the best Arkham game so far in terms of story. Also, I had not a single problem with the game on PS3. Slow downs were a lot more frequent when Arkham City was new.

I for one am currently downloading the DLC and look forward to enjoying it. I also look forward where the studio takes the franchise after Rocksteady is done with Arkham Knight. They just hired the Splinter Cell Blacklist guy, so I am quite optimistic.

It's not showing up for me.

I've barely played the game since I got it but I'll download this since it's free for season pass users

the actual game did for me. I gave up on online. I forgot the name of the level but in the sewers of blackgate, where you have to throw the ice pelets into the water to create platforms to stand on, the pellets weren't being detected by the water. I had to glitch my way out of the level thank god I managed to because it auto saved at that location. A bunch of other bugs for me too. Not being able to interrogate crime scene investigations wouldn't work until i quit the game and reloaded.

I quite enjoy the online play. If you can get a match...^.^

@iaconpoint: i wouldn't get it even as a goty edition as the warner bros mont have said they aren't going to fix the bugs

Edited by TheComedian_

I don't have much faith in this.

Origins was awful compared to the other two.

Posted by Sachmoo

Gotta love gaming now a days.

Admit the game has hella bugs, and address it by saying, "We recognize our game is unpolished and unfinished. Instead of working on touching up the game (less money), we have already been tasked with making the next game (more money). In the mean time, enjoy this DLC(more money) that we developed before the game even came out and could have EASILY put it in the game pre-launch(less money). But decided to add it in later via simple unlock code for $10 (more money)."

To hell with Warner Bros. They cancelled this DLC on the Wii U version, but got to keep their share of Season Pass sales. Nintendo had to reimburse gamers themselves, meaning they lost even more money than they already were. That kind of crap should be illegal.

Got my season pass, i'll be playing this after work.

Oh and for the haters

@patrat18:

Have fun with your broken garbage game that even without bugs still sucks, having the worst gameplay and the game just being total crap after that beyond stupid plot twist.

He looks kinda… Chubby.

Edited by Child_Karl

Remember you guys, this is the DLC that was so important & worthy of resources that the developers couldn't be bothered to fix a game-breaking issue with a patch! Hope it was worth it!

Lol ever since they patched it up, my game has been working great, i was playing it this morning. All that other stuff is your opinion, and to be honest, i couldn't give a rats A$$.

Posted by Child_Karl

@sparty_dbq: Interesting, I didn't think about that at all. I knew the Wii U costumers were refunded their money but it sounds like Nintendo ate the cost of the cancelled content from what I can tell.

@shallbecomeabattoo: Thank you! I've been waiting for someone to say that. I never had much of a problem playing the game and I loved it! Yeah, the game had a couple of glitches, but it was never so much that the game was unplayable. I was always able to breeze through even with the glitches. I only had to reset my Xbox 360 twice on my entire gameplay. So, I don't understand why people complain about never finishing the game. I just assume those people suck at the game terribly and looking for an excuse for it.

Posted by Grey56

You know, it tickles me a bit to see Nora encased in one of these scenes. Whether or not Snyder changed things in the annual; it's nice that at least WB seems to be giving the nod to Dini's incarnation of the character.

I truly love what Snyder has done - only his changes to Fries have really bothered me. I look forward to playing this despite the potential for bugs.

Digging this, everything looks awesome

Huh? I never had any problems when I played it. No bug, freezes, or glitches. When fighting he always seemed slow and while that bothered me a lot, I just chalked it up to , "I'm new to crime fighting and I'm getting my ass handed to me, better exit stage left, regroup and come back with a vengeance." Pun was not intended but hey I like the way rolls out.

Pun was not intended but hey I like the way rolls out. Was the plot that bad? I enjoyed it greatly, really tied together the Joker Bat relationship in Arkham for me. Drifted from the advertisement but hey if you want to sell a lie you let the media do it for you. Besides when has any Batman cases been exactly what you they said it was gonna be. You in thinking easy peasy it's ABC you come out like damn man things got to weird and outta hand. It's Gotham, It's the Nature of the Beast, nothing is ever what it seems.

Idk how someone can like this suit... It look just like, that is made for the brawl against... trucks,tanks... planes ??? Can for Bane, Croc ... but again... pff....

Batman is agile character... and he need to have agile suit... i only can see Tony Stark behind that mask... !

And with that things on his arms, that prfljwlnfr or whatever is that... he will need 2-3 seconds or 4 for one punch... but with legs, man its totally second story... 6-7 seconds... even more !

And yea when i mention legs... is this lego game ?

Ahhh, yeah. Gonna play me some Origins right now.

he doesnt ALWAYS go with agility...heck even in his comic his bat mobile turns into a mech.... he does have some bulky armor type suits....plus this is origins, he wont have a state of the art slim heated suit right off the bat so I am fine with this

I lost my USB cord and can't connect my controller to my ps3 so it looks like I will be waiting until tomorrow to play this.

Posted by HighlyEvolved

@thewalkingdeadpool18: You are aware that Origin's gameplay is exactly the same as City and Asylum? So by saying it has bad gameplay you say the rest do too. Origins was great, just not as good as the others. That doesn't make it a bad game. Forexample, if you get 95 on a test, and some else gets 98, does that make your 95 absolutely atrocious and not worthy of anything? No, it doesn't.

Edited by Krypton-115

Awesome game, the new batsuit looks amazing and reminds me of Bruce's suit when he fights the Talons in the City of Owls story.

Posted by ULTRAstarkiller

NEW ARKHAM KNIGHT NEWS...oh Origins hey there...how's it been...look you kinda disappointed me so i wont be playing you...anymore...

Posted by thewalkingdeadpool18

@highlyevolved:

No because it's a bad game is what makes it bad. I didn't say AO sucks because AA and AC are good. No i said AO sucks because AO sucks.Also the mechanics are the same but it's not nearly as fluid.

Can somebody tell me how to start the DLC? Can't find it anywhere in the game, wondering if I have a glitch.

Posted by YoungJustice

Did I get the one good disc or is everyone over exaggerating?

Edited by KnightMare75

Why can't I get the cold cold heart dlc to work I got the season pass when I got the game and can't find it any where in the game is there something else I have to do?

Posted by Hoplite91

@knightmare75:
Same here, ReDLing now. Post an answer if you figure it out.

yes and got all the trophies

I'm trying to play it on a game where I've beaten the story and the New Game Plus, though my completion is only in the sixties. I can't imagine that being a problem.
