Catwoman fights very, very awesome, she reminds me of Bayoentta in that she seems to toy and almost dance with the enemies.

Hope to God she can be playable the entire campaign as a game+ or something.

Really nice, I hope they make Robin a badass and likeable!
I like the redesign of Robin but this stupid modern design of guys with buzzcuts is annoying.

Catwoman is good, but I dislike the face.

What face?

I remember when GamerSyde used to be a place, where every gamer and every platform was welcome. Now the PC elitists spread here like cancer and want to ruin everything.

Go stick your 500$ cards up your arse, enjoy.
I love You xD

The combat looks repetitive - same problem as in the first game. However, the game looks awesome overall. Definitely a day one purchase.

So many games all in a three month period . . . so little cash . . .

the PS3 version footage is just some corridor with 10 thugs and the 360 is openworld mode orgasm and 50 thugs. lest us take moronic reasonings for this. shall we?

/troll

This and Revelations will be mine Day 1.

Looks ok. Don't really like the altered jaw of Batman and the steroid pumped up muscels . Wasn't he thinner in the first game?

I believe it's 360 footage as I expect the pc version to have PhysX again and I didn't see that in the video.

Anyhow: day 1 for me.

Apparently its what happens when video games characters get old, their chin's grow... it's called Nathan Drake syndrome.

Game looks great.. the world nicely detailed. One thing i hate though is the lack of manners NPC's have in these games. If i've just saved your life i want atleast a "bye" before you mindlessly run away down the road. It cost nothing to be polite!

HAHAHA two face shot Batman. God, that was so funny.

Althought I did enjoy the previous game I am really not that into the style they have going with this game. It seems to mash-up the various typical comic, cartoon and film styles of the Batman characters, and I feel it comes off a bit uninspiring, even if it technically looks great.

I'd love to see this game done cell shaded with the character designs and stylings of frank miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

I'm liking that they've improved the story, given it more of a drama, while first one was just an awesome trip with not much of a plot.
Commented on 2011-07-02 16:01:25
Holy shit, I got goosebumps after watching this. And I am not into superhero games at all.

PS: it was clearly the commodore 64 version, I could tell from the pixels

Probably the best Two-face I've ever seen. Hopefully he'll be appearing much more often in the final game.
Commented on 2011-07-02 16:53:53
Really looking forward to this, looks awesome, but man did that convo between batman and the guy he saved look like shit. Lip syncing and facial animation was bad and they where stiff as a board, reminded me of oblivion.

Still cant wait for it, one of only a few multiplats im willing to buy this year. (others being deus ex 3 and dark souls)

It was even worse in Arkham Asylum, so at least it's been improved.

Well Cat's and Two-face's facial animations looked fine to me.

Yea, but I am guessing that's because they were more like main story cutscenes, rather just ingame convo.

Yeah, the propper cutscene animations are fine, but the convo's are very stiff. It's in most open world games tho, the side mission stuff just doesnt have the polish of the main missions. Infamous, assassins creed, they all do it, was hoping batman wpuld be an exception. It isnt a game breaker at any rate.

I'd only expect that if Rocksteady had Rockstar level of money, for in-game conversations.

I can not believe that Batman is so perfect!
