game will take 8hrs to complete

and that's if you know the game inside out and know exactly what you are doing,and finally its 8hrs without any sidequests as well

sounds about right

Quote
"I can tell you that our QA guys, who are ninjas and obviously know everything in the game, can do just the core story missions, nothing else, in about eight hours, just straight-lining.

"And they know exactly where to go what to do - the most efficient way of doing it. So, someone who has no idea what to do and wants to complete everything it's going to be significantly more than that."

Dear Distrubutors
What can I do to make you stop making annoying pre-order deals, shop-specific, country-specific or whatever the hell specific you can think of? I will happily destroy your corporate headquarters if it will help.

I enjoyed the challenge maps to help me do more awesome things during the main campaign.

As for Arkham City, I am really liking what I see in regards to flying around with the cape, which is even more Batman-like. Then there's the changes to detective vision.

Ignoring his scores, I'd say the real competition was seeing which of us beat Shock & Awe Extreme. ninja

As for that trailer... oh my holy lord. I want for no other game this year. None. That's the one I get the second it streets.

looks like the main story takes around 25 hrs,and the side quests can be taken at any time,can take roughly 15 hrs

so,if you are good at maths,it will bring you to 40hrs worth of content

Quote
"It takes over 25 hours to complete the main stories in Batman: Arkham City. To keep players engaged for this length of time, not only do the characters and the story need to progress, but the core mechanics of the game they are playing need to change and adapt as well"

Quote
"The side missions in Batman: Arkham City are a good example. We have around 15 hours of story that's off the main path," he said.

"It's completely down to the player when and how they want to tackle this - there's no right or wrong time. There's no other medium that can offer this kind of flexible experience where the viewer gets to tailor the experience they want themselves."

I just hope that it doesn't feel too long.  I thought the last game was a perfect length.  It didn't need padding.  Hopefully the story wil need that much time.

ok first the bad news,or at least news that made me go 'Awww' icon_frown icon_mad
GameInfomer

Quote
A new Q&A at the official Arkham City community forums reveals that Harley Quinn will now be voiced by Tara Strong, an accomplished voice actress who has considerable experience with the IP, voicing The Huntress in Batman: Brave And The Bold, as well as Batgirl in a variety of games and animated series.

While we don't question Strong's vocal chops, she will be replacing Arleen Sorkin, who supplied the voice for Harley Quinn not only in Arkam Asylum, but also in Batman: The Animated Series, which is where the character was first introduced. As the original voice for Harley Quinn, Sorkin had as much of a hand in establishing the character as the writers did. Luckily, Strong is taking the role seriously. "Stepping into the role of Harley Quinn is an enormous honor that I do not take lightly," Strong says in the Q&A. "She has an established voice and character that I definitely wanted to honor."

Strong sounds like she has a good direction for the character in Arkham City as well: "Harley Quinn is classically protective of The Joker, fiercely so. She has a unique mix of psychopath and vulnerable girl sweetness. She is crafty and sharp. I see her as a force to be reckoned with."


and now the good news..it looks like it will be The Bat,The Cat and The Penguin,as Magazine scans show Oswald Cobblepot(i nearly put Chester Cobblepot.....damn you goonies!!)

so,how many villains does that make now?...not surprised its gonna take so long to play/finish

I wonder what happened with Arleen Sorkin.  According to IMDB, she's played the role for almost 20 years and, other than a role on Days of Our Lives, hasn't done much else.  Why would she stop now?

maybe she's decided to move on.  Mark Hamill has said this is his last outing as The Joker, and even Kevin Conroy hasn't been doing all the Batman voice work lately.

Interactive 3D pictures

only one has been revealed at the moment,but you can use the mouse to drag the pic to rotate around The Batman,it's pretty cool and you can have a look at the city around you(i can see a Riddler Trophy,if that's what it is,it looks quite big)
