Comic Book Question of the Week: Will You Buy 'Batman: Arkham Origins?'

Are you going to dive into Gotham City this Friday or do you have no intention of stepping foot there?

A new Arkham game is only 3 days away! If you can't tell, we're really excited. It's hard not to be after they've released a 17-minute gameplay video and a breathtaking TV spot. We're obviously going to jump into the game right when we get our hands on it, but do you share our enthusiasm for this upcoming video game? Well, that's exactly what we want to find out this week! Are you going to rush out to a midnight release and then play until the sun comes up... or are you just going to skip out on this one? We've provided a few options in the poll, so check it out by following the link below and speak your mind!

CLICK HERE TO VOTE!

The poll will stay open until Thursday morning (ET). Once the poll is locked, a new article will go live with the results and more. If you want to go the extra mile, go ahead and get your elaboration on. Check the homepage Thursday to see the results and more! Again, Batman: Arkham Origins comes out THIS FRIDAY!

First and absolutely. Gettin that collectors edition :)

Posted by x9x_PropheT_x9x

Is this even a question?

Posted by Shallbecomeabattoo

OH HECK YES!!! Collectors edition all the way, baby! Cannot wait for it to arrive this friday! The Arkham games are among my favorite games ever (with GTA 5, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3 and a few others), so I am looking forward to it since I finished Arkham City for the first time.

I actually just began a new playthrough on that game... should be around my 6th time, maybe more.

So, yeah... I love this series! I will watch Man of Steel on blu and then start the game this friday.

Not for $60. Great series so far but will be half the price by Christmas time

@thorboy: Half the price by Christmas? I don't know any blockbuster game that would fall that far in the festival season.

Edited by kennybaese

I'm definitely going to buy it, but I think I'll have to wait for a price drop or Christmas. Most of my spare pennies are going into the savings account for my wedding next year.

i don't play video games anymore. next generation made me not care. but I don't like batman so never bought the arkam games

Posted by Dabee

I usually don't buy more than one full price game a year. GTA V was that game this year. I'll wait for a sale. It'll be tough, but I'll do it.

Posted by AlKusanagi

Not yet. You just know there will be a next gen "HD version" with all the DLC included. I'll get that one.

Posted by ravisher

i just got lego marvel

so i will wait

Posted by conradoaccorsi

@hamlet33: me too, pre ordered from gamestop, because of the exclusives (Black Mask playable ftw)

Edited by Mucklefluga

Pre ordered for £30

Posted by MrMazz

Not right away. I've got a mess of other things to buy and new consoles are coming out (not that the launch line up for either consoles is great).

I'll see what GB and the other video games guys I trust have to say about it and see it some more. It just seems kind unnecessary. Might pick it up for 20 on Amazon in a couple of weeks/2 months

Posted by Wolverine08

Hell yeah!

Good luck finding me online this weekend.

If the spoiler I just found out about is true, I can't wait for the reaction.

Posted by kaiklown

oh yeaaahhh got megaultra edition coming soon. Cant wait.

Posted by RogueShadow

Pre ordered for £30

WTF! It cost me 35 on Amazon!

Edited by tikhunt

Pre-ordered for £30 at GAME with exclusive online skins. Which reminds me is anyone getting it for PC? If so would like to face some of you guys.

Also it's my birthday on Friday so make sure to think of me when you're playing it.

After the price drops dramatically.

same

Posted by ptigrusmagus

Buy it now then pay extra for content that should be included in the release then pay extra for add-ons that should be included in the release? NO THANKS! Will wait for Game of the Year edition.

Good luck finding me online this weekend.

lol

Edited by Bobsjonjon

Hell yeah!

!

Edited by Grimoire

I had to put tempting but will wait even though I'm hoping to have enough by the first of the month to get it. lol

Edited by Dstick88

Where is the comic book battle of the week? i cant find it :(

Posted by spinningbirdcake

Might get the PC edition if I feel like going to get another controller seeing as mine is broken. I might wait and see whether the next gen controllers work on pc out of the box.

Edited by Shallbecomeabattoo

Man... a whole lotta cheap bastards around these parts! I kid, I kid.

Really... when I really want something, I NEVER wait for it, no matter the cost. I know there are smarter ways to do it and the game will be half price off in 6 months, but then again, I work my butt off, so I am entitled to buy stuff I want as soon as I want it, like a happy consumer. For some things I cannot and will not wait and it already has been a big month, since I bought the Sideshow Batman lifesize bust and paid off my PS4 with three games already.

So again, I get when people can wait for something, but I would rather work overtime to make more money to not have to wait. Maybe thats just me, though.

Launch day for me.

THis has been my most anticipated title since I beat Arkham City.

Although i am a bit dissapointed at the fact that thsi was supposed to be a silver age themed game with like Superman and green lantern and stuff remember? lol buti guess things change hopefully for the better :)


Oh and ...
Batman > GTA V

Seriously lol

Posted by flameboy298

Umm...

Can someone please explain to me What are the major differences between this and Arkham City?I know different story and its around christmas and 8 assassins when blah blah.But it looks like Arkham city just modded.

Posted by FoxxFireArt

Buy it now then pay extra for content that should be included in the release then pay extra for add-ons that should be included in the release? NO THANKS! Will wait for Game of the Year edition.

These are also my plans. I'll wait for the version that has all the DLC on the disc. As with ARKHAM CITY, you know this version will be released just about the same time the last story-based DLC is put out.

I pre-ordered it weeks ago! Beyond excited!

Posted by dreamfall31

Nope. Love the first two games, but everything I've seen of this has me super uninterested. Looking forward to the game that the original dev, Rocksteady, is working on for next year.

Posted by reaperOnyx

Yes, i will, no question

Posted by LordRequiem

I need to see more gameplay footage and find out more about what's in the game. The other two are a bit too repetitive and his arsenal of gadgets did not very enough. As good as they were. I think this looks to be similar.

Posted by Star_Boy616

My Xbox is broken :( so that's a no. What a bad luck... This was one of my most anticipated game of the year.

Posted by dagmar_merrill

Yup, looks awesome!

Posted by GeekBait

Eventually. Probably for Christmas. I guess playing it during/right after Christmas will just add to the gameplay experience!

Posted by HexThis

Does anyone know if they plan to release it on MAC eventually? They released Arkham Aslyum and Arkham City on MAC but I can't find any information about Arkham Origins. I know some people are like "F-- Mac, u can't be a gamer and like Mac" but it is possible for them to make it.

I'm sure they will within a year. Many big hit titles have been making their way to Mac.

Super Excited but I do fear the Joker will overshadow Black Mask like he did Hugo Strange.

Posted by Marionettegeist

The first 2 hours of the game are on youtube for anyone who wants to watch a bit to get a preview. It looked okay, I skipped around and saw what looked like a really fun boss fight with Death-Stroke. I'm still not really that interested though, I'm just gonna wait and look at the reviews, and how well multi-player turns out.

What kind of question is this? Hell absolutely yeah

Posted by Pokeysteve

F**k yes! Pre ordered that s**t a month ago. Little nervous about how Batman will sound.
