PC videos of Batman: Arkham City

PC videos of Batman: Arkham City

Available for a little more than one month on both consoles, Batman: Arkham City has finally arrived on PC, so here are some gameplay videos from the beginning of the game. Note that the videos were captured in DirectX9 mode, the DirectX11 one causing big problems of stuttering.

Nice pic. A funny caption for it would be:

Who's the man? Yo the man!

Looks like an ad for a razor commercial. "Real men shave their face with a Batarang!"

Looks like he's trying to seduce us.
Caption should be:

"Let's explore your bat cave, baby"

It's a shame it only runs well in dx9. I hope they will patch the game soon. Also PhysX is poorly implemented. I have a tri-sli GTX570 set-up and even on normal I can't get 60 fps. Without PhysX it runs like a dream for me.

Will you post another video with DX11 once the game gets patched?
Commented on 2011-11-26 19:45:13
I thought the delay would bring with it some PC goodies but I guess not.

If there's a real difference and if I can record it right with Fraps (for now it stutter too much), I'll do it :)

I assume the only difference between console and PC version is in PhysX, which is nice but it makes the game unplayable for most people, so the only thing PC players get are higher res/AA and 60 fps as in all other ports.

That was funny, but the thought of someones batcave, means that it is probably abandon and condemned.

Looks awesome (didn't check the spoiler vids) will buy it during the Steam December sale :D

Yup. The only thing PC players get is higher resolution/image quality and a better framerate and more physics. Basically nothing.

DX11 mode doesn't work very well now but it does add tessellation, Multi-View Soft Shadows and HBAO. I believe developers also said PC version gets higher resolution textures.

You see this one post of you is ironic considering that you are the one clearly missing the sarcasm here not me.

I considered the possibility, but I went for it anyway. You got me.

Damn Grift. You've been had.

Delayed three months, then they add Phy-X instead Havok physics effectively depriving my AMD 6970 of graphics that could have been easily handled otherwise. and I bet they will wonder why people pirate.
Commented on 2011-11-30 20:27:53
Pirates surely downloads the game because of the delay/physx and not because they want it for free.

^^ We should do some kind of round table on sarcasm in this thread btw. ;)
