Batman AA commented video

Eidos (or should we say Square-Enix?) released this commented gameplay video of Batman: Arkham Asylum for the GDC. Looking great.

I saw it on Gamespot, and it looks like it's coming along nicely.

I anticipate that the game will be good, and so far from what I've just now seen, it's going far beyond my expectations. I've see Dark Knight the movie. It was brilliant. I'd like to say thank you to the developers for making a game that isn't based on the box office smash. I don't need to relive the movie experience in a game. I just wish more devs would take this route.

Please, please don't screw this up.

I have high hopes for this.

It definitely reminds me of Splinter Cell, which is a bloody good thing!

Never been so suprised. I'm buying this now!:D

Lighting still needs to be changed. They would be able to just look up and see him

I agree this looks excellent and it could be the best Batman game in a very long time...I like the fact that it follows the exaggerated style of the comics as opposed to the movies and the play mechanics seem to be very much based around the character's strengths and persona.

Definitely keeping a close eye on this one...

this is looking great, I have hight expectations for this game.

This is perfect, exactly what a Batman game should be. They realised having a mix of Tenchu and Splinter Cell gameplay mechanics would work well. I'm glad it's much more accessible than those games with the button prompts ("LT + A"; "X for Glide kick"), much like Star Wars: Republic Commando, because the fanbase for Batman is huge like Star Wars.

Surprising at the level of production values, from Rocksteady, whose last game was Urban Chaos.

About the game

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, I'll be bolloxed if I'm hunting for 800 koroks or whatever it is. At least the shrines offer a decentish reward. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I doubt I'll try to 100% Zelda, but I can already tell that it's a very big game. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: One for my desk and one for my livingroom. It would also be convenient to have a portable dongle. Part of the beauty of the device is portability. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Doing it that way before going to Ganon should take you in the region of about 100 hours, minimum. I only just finished the game 3 days ago. Nearly 8 weeks of hammering the game. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX:Zelda will keep you occupied for a brave while. If, you're like myself, you'll want to take in everything Hyrule has to offer by exploring everything (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Why a second dock? :) (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX but it's already being put through its paces in multiple modes. I would have bought a second dock immediately if they weren't so expensive. (7 Hours ago)
