I just pre-ordered it, I wondered whether anyone is looking forward to it and what your thoughts/theories/expectations on the game are. I'm hoping for Green Arrow to pop up somewhere [Given the Queen explosive from the trailer]

I am. Black Mask is finally getting his break!

@mrdecepticonleader: Yea I always think Black Mask should be a A-grade bat villain. I mean he makes a much better crime lord than the Penguin.

Yeah. I agree. I guess despite all the messed up stuff he has done in the comics, that make him just as good a Bat villain as others. It takes a big appearance in some other form of media that will finally elevate him. Which is understandable I guess.

This guy. I probably won't buy it though, because I'm broke. But at least, Black Mask is the main villain this time.

Man I liked Arkham a lot the first time I bought it, and then when they added "city" to the title and I bought it again it was still kinda fun. I'm not sure If I want to buy the same game a third time.

I always thought Black Mask should be up there alongside other villains like Joker, Riddler, Two-Face, etc. As one of Gotham's biggest crime bosses, he represents the very thing that Batman fights against and the idea of having one ruthless leader over all of the gangs (at least most of them) just sounds awesome. Hopefully this game will boost Mask's popularity and DC will start using him more in the New 52 comics.

I'll probably have to wait til Christmas to buy it but at the start, Origins didn't do it for me. However, as time went on and more info and details were released, I have to admit it's an impressive continuation of what Rocksteady have been doing. It probably won't match the heights of Arkham Origins or Arkham City but if it's in their ball part, Arkham Origins should be one helluva game!

Agreed. From the Batman vs. Deathstroke trailer, seeing him impale one of his thugs after they were defeated by the Bat, seeing how ruthless and merciless he was, I'm hoping we'll see a lot of that in the game.

Indeed there is. It focuses around 3v3v2 gameplay. Three players will control Bane's gang in a third person fashion similar to Gears of War. Three other players will control Jokers gang and the last two control Batman and Robin. Everyone has their own set of gadgets and equipment and the gang members have limited "detective vision" similar to that of Batman. After a period of time, both a member of Bane and Joker's gang can take control of the characters themselves.

Oh wow, 3 vs. 3 vs 2? That sounds awesome! So it's a free for all mode then? I wonder if we can play Deathstroke too in that mode since he's a pre-order exclusive(they'll probably release him via DLC down the line hopefully) WB has done it with the previous Batman games and Injustice so I'm hoping!

Kind of reminds me of Aliens vs. Predator game with everyone having different tactics, humans, aliens and predators combined with Batman of course and Gears. Sounds sweet!

Nah, Deathstroke is challenge map exclusive sadly. So yeah, it is kind of a free-for-all capture mode. First to grab the objectives and what-not, similarly to how conquest plays out in Battlefield.

@deranged_midget:

Oh, so DS is a different mode? cool, didn't know that. Hmm, that's cool. The replay value will be bigger then the previous two Batman games then I bet, and those games were cool. Thanks for the info, you've been looking into this a lot I see :)

Cause every thing is condensed to five years. It's five years between City and Origins and Nightwing was in City so his timeline gets condensed and Tim, Barbara, and Catwoman too. Idk maybe I'm thinking too hard lol.

Honestly, unless it's stated somewhere in the game that the story takes place "five years ago" or something like that, I would just ignore that statement.

But even so, I still don't see it being as bad as the New 52 timeline. In that time Batman had to train four Robins with in five years, yet here he's only had to train two. Dick Grayson, from how he appears in the multiplayer, appears to be about 16-17 years old, this would place him in early twenties during Arkham City when we see him as Nightwing. Tim Drake's about 16-17 in Arkham City, which would make sense if he's only been Robin for a few years.

But again, unless it's stated in the game, I don't think it's wrong to say that it takes place more than five years ago. But that's just me. :P
