Didn't think I'd ever say it but Harley looks hot here. Great outfit too. Hopefully they'll change voice actress.
Whole game overall looks fantastic, having really high hopes for this one.

The game I'm looking forward to the most after Crysis 2. The first 1 blew me away. And Rocksteady has stated they won't settle for anything less than a better game than the first one. Woot.

finally a good looking game that will have good frame rates to boot! Very interested in this

One of my most anticipated games. I'm sure it'll be great!

Yup, the fact that they anounced it so early. and not bringing it out till end 2011 says alot. They even said the game is finished content wise, so you can finish it from start to end, basically they spend a whole year on polishing it, damn!!!!! Cool though.

This will be one of next years best games, I'm sure of it!

Well the first one delivered in the biggest way, hoping this one knocks it out the park. I have faith

Are they really going for an open world Batman game around Gotham? I mean it's blowing my mind, because I thought they'd make it more confining so it's more dramatic. But maybe it's more like much more hubs, and not sandbox like GTA which would ruin the story.

Having just started a 3d CGI module, I don't think I ever really appreciated just how much effort goes into making good 3d models... until now that is.. and man that is some nice work right there..

Thats a pretty big assumption to make considering the major changes to the game are ones that would be most hindering to any engine. You have no idea how the game is going to run.

The game looks cool, but they need to really nail the environments, and I'm not getting that here.

It's not open world per se, the game is divided by areas, kinda like the first one. Althou there is ton of side quests etc. to be done, but the story is linear and instead of copy/paste buildings and streets, all environments are carefully planned out to deliver the best atmoshpere. More like bigger Arkham instead of something like GTA

Well assuming that first one run on my ancient 6800gt with all max settings (except AA) on 1152x864 almost without any lags/slows whatsoever, I think this one is gonna be working fine also.

Crazy isn't it? I think that most people don't really truly get it until they've tried it themselves...

Definitely the best use of the Unreal engine outside of Epic. So friggin psyched for this game. It's so far away though.
Commented on 2010-10-12 14:18:09
Yep! GAME SHOULD BE EPIC, I THINK 2011 SHOULD BE A GREAT YEAR FOR GAMING.

We were saying that about 2010 too.

I don't like the way Harley looks now. That's just me though. Small complaint really

She's wearing maybe Combat Harley outfit (notice the Uzis behind her), so maybe her looks are more functional than the classic costume from the cartoons, which would've looked out of place in a Gotham under war and especially better than Arkham Asylum where it was just fanservice.

First game was unbelievable, can't wait for the second.

About the game


What's up?
  • rayy
    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker directly compare it to SDR, holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. I just checked Ghost Recon beta and Hitman, ooooh my. :) (8 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts [url] And seems sales are great. Much deserved. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the 2nd best reviewed game of the year: [url] (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: HDR does more for that "Wow!" factor than just increasing resolution to 4K. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Tried out FM7 demo, FH3, Recore and man....what a difference. SDR looks dull in comparison now, jeez. In terms of colours for starters, sky and sun in FM7 and FH3 looks lovely, vivid. (9 Hours ago)
