This game just keeps impressing me. I'm waiting for it to let me down, but it keeps looking good. Did they push the release date back though?

I would have much rathered if they didn't feel the need to bring in every single A and B list villain into this game. I'm not a Joker fan, but I would have rather just had him and Harley Quinn. I'm too lazy to go past Wiki, but there are already 21 villains. Completely unnecessary. I guess it's nice to have Hush though.

Yes they did. It's now scheduled for the end of the summer (probably september).

It doesn't matter if it's necessary or not. I don't know about you, but one of the most appealing things about this game is the amount of famous villains that are going to be included.

Anyway, can't wait for this.

If you were really a Batman fan then you'd welcome all these characters. And if you aren't then why do you care about this game? At least with this many characters the game should be pretty long and that's good enough for me.

Because ALL Batman fans would want the same thing obviously. I have never been keen on fan service for fan service sake. I'd rather have 2 or 3 villains interwoven into a brilliant plot than the developer trying to throw in every single person they can into something that's probably going to be convoluted mess plotwise.

I don't care about some artificial length in games. There are over 1000 hours in Gran Turismo 4, but someone else might get bored within 10. Likewise, I can make something like DMC3, which can be beaten in probably 10 hours, into a 50 hour game with replayability. Just because it takes X amount of time to slug through the plot doesn't mean it has some value.

That's likely to be a naive assumption on your part. From what I've heard of the plot, I have every confidence that it will all make sense.

You shouldnt worry about it so much because if there are 21 characters, then the game should be quite long. It would probably get boring with just 2 villians, but with all these the gameplay should be different with every boss. Plus the game isnt based on the movie so this should definitely be worth the wait.

I don't care about length. If it's fun, which it looks like it will be, I'll play it again. I have the boxset I don't have some overwhelming urge to hear everyone from TAS.

from all the trailers and developer videos I've seen of this game so far it just oozes class, I can't wait for this game!
