All that body armor but leaves the lower half of his face unprotected from bullets. Gothlam criminals needs to step their game up! *shakes head*

Damn man that Batmobile combat bit, it was almost like some crazy bullet hell game

I have never really cared for much of Rocksteady's character designs. Most of the faces just look weird.

Also is the guy in the fourth pic supposed to be from Assassins Creed?

They're a mixture between real and comic.. i like them. This looks really good for the most part, and good to see they're showing the actual console version.
Batmobile stuff i'm still not sold on...looks great driving through the city, but most combat with it looks standard flat area style shoot and dodge stuff...which can get boring pretty quickly. Could be worse...could all be on rails (ala infamous). Hand to hand combat though looks decent, and swapping between characters mid fight should keep things interesting - still a crime it's not co-op though.

not really. you can call robin and nightwing to do combo moves. but as far as i'm aware you never directly control them? they just fly in. kick a bit of ass in a context sensitive sort of way, then they fuck off again?

My biggest issue is this is next gen and the the paper on the ground is still static :/. I know this was a nvidia phys X effect and that entails a nice gfx card on a pc but you would think these things would have filtered threw in some way to next gen consoles. Leaves the game for me feeling a bit last gen.

ya'll see that shit? Awww man! Batman just unleashed a 58 hit combo, kicking everybody's ass! And now he kidnapped Poison Ivy to make love to her in his Bat cave. I want to be The Batman! .....and also DMX.

Actually, you can control the sidekick during fights and switch between Batman and the sidekick at any time. EuroGamer has an article that covers this and goes into more details on how it works:

"The AI takes care of whatever character you aren't controlling and generally tends to keep them on the other side of the battle from you, but as soon as they've joined the melee you can switch back and forth between them and Batman instantly. Any combos that you begin to build will carry over between characters, as will any special moves that you've built up."


About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (13 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (13 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (13 Hours ago)
