I started playing this past week while recovering from surgery, and while I wasn't immediately pulled in like with AA, I was hooked after the first indoor environment. This game is so full of awesome it's ridiculous. I'm looking forward to wrapping it up this week and possibly doing another playthrough immediately.

So I had decided to start the game over after my first fight with Joker and his gang as my combat skills were not up to par. I have now finished the tower and dealing with Hugo Strange and his master, and holy moly, this game is an absolute masterpiece. This is how a superhero game should be, and even Hollywood should take notice as a how-to effectively use multiple villains in the same script.

I have loved almost every minute of the game, and nothing has felt tacked on as filler material. 10/10 for me.

Did you finish it already?   icon_eek

I watched the whole thing on youtube. It's incredibly short, or at least feels that way compared to AA.

You crazy.

Is that going against the boycott? It does feel a little crooked but at least I'm not giving money to Rocksteady.

I must have missed the reason why you are boycotting them.  Is it because they did this Catwoman DLC thing to supposedly combat used games sales but then apparently struck a deal with Gamestop to include codes with used copies?  Or was it something else?

That's pretty shifty too but I was more referring to delaying the PC version but not the consoles, and not only selling more copies of the console versions for practically double the price of the PC version, but then double dipping because people are too impatient to wait but want the best version. This level of greed belongs in a special place in hell with the child molesters.


You have proof that this is why they delayed the PC version how exactly?


Maybe now you guys will believe me that they are just money grubbing. Tonight at target, I found copies of arkham city sitting on the shelf. I took a chance and bought it. It appears to be the real thing as far as I can tell. AVG doesn't claim it's a virus, it comes on 2 dvds, and took an hour to install including swapping back to disk 1 for the final part.

So here it is, proof that rocksteady has been lying to us from the beginning. They had time to ship it to mexico, press it to disks, and box it up for retail but claim it's not done yet. Complete bullshit.

It's time locked and does an internet check so changing the date on my local machine didn't work.

Many high-profile games arrive with stickers cautioning retailers not to sell them before a certain date.  My Halo 3 box still has its orange "Do Not Sell Before 09/27/2007" reminder on it.  It isn't because the developers wanted to deny people the chance to buy their game, but because there are real logistical considerations to ensuring that every retailer has their orders filled by release date.  Sometimes one store will be expected to hide its saleable stock for days because another won't receive its supply until the morning it comes out.

Your Target broke its release date.  It's infuriating to have a legally purchased product you're not allowed to use, but I don't believe Rocksteady wants to deceive us about its readiness.  Companies that do tend to push their products out early -- Elemental, Empire: Total War, Sword of the Stars II -- not late, after the promotional buzz has died down and public attention has shifted to other big releases.

On an unrelated note, I finished earning all the Campaign medals for Batman.  It took me a couple tries to figure out how to beat Predator Master -- "End of the Line Extreme" is pretty tough with booby trapped vantage points -- but I'm done with all the available Challenges.

I haven't decided if I'm going to try to finish them all as Catwoman, but I'll definitely be tackling New Game+ shortly.  This game really is phenomenal!  nod thumbsup

Just finished the game. Odd that the last fight wasn't the toughest.

Now to head back in to max the upgrades and find all the Riddler stuff.

Return to your old game to clean up any side missions left unfinished.  Start New Game+ to pick up uncollected Riddler stuff.  Your trophy and riddle progress carry over, and you'll be able to pick up all the ones you missed while simultaneously blazing through the story.

Just beat the game, wanted to discuss a bit...

Spoiler for Hiden:
So, is there anything more to the story after the Joker and Talia's death? I doubt the Joker is really dead, plenty of comic book style shenanigans to pull for that. But, are there any secret endings or hints to the next game like in AA?

Pretty crazy finale, and while things got a bit strange and meandering in the middle, it ended up great at the end.

Word is from DC that what's happened is approved by them, not sure if canon. But, since they rebooted the entire universe recently, this could just be one of those things that is rebooted as well.

If another is made, they need to reset the gadget list back down to basics.

Oh and anyone have tips for the crowded fights?

I've especially got problems with the guys with shields. What gadgets work on them? So far I've found the electric charge stuns them for a short time, but not much. On the PC, the disarm and destroy takedown button is a bit far from the movement control WASD, to using it is a bit tricky when trying to target the correct guy, but that also works.

I find that disarm and destroy (on console) will automagically target an upright enemy with a weapon if I'm not pushing in a certain direction.  Since they drop the shield/weapon when they fall, it will do a regular takedown if there's no valid target.

Shield carriers can be knocked around pretty efficiently by using a cape sweep and then performing an aerial attack (double 'A'-tap with a controller; double spacebar on a keyboard).  This attack cannot be interrupted, unlike an aerial attack against normal enemies, and it sets up the opportunity to trap the discarded shield with a dollop of explosive gel for the next guy who tries to pick it up.

Some people will tell you that shooting a shield or baton-wielding thug with your REC can disrupt groups and net Collateral Damage points.  Personally, I think the risks outweigh the gains.  I tend to target them first, followed by the regular thugs, and try to preserve knife-wielders and ninjas as long as possible.  A good Blade Dodge Takedown near the end of a long combo streak is a *huge* boost to your score. nod

I was going to pick B:AC up again,but now i will wait for ..

the GOTY edition


which will include Harley Quinns Revenge,and all previous DLC and a download code for Batman:Year One animated movie

May 29th release


Harley DLC will be available on its own on 30th April

Quote
The Harley Quinn's Revenge mission sends players back into Arkham City to face their final challenge as they interchange between playing as both Batman and Robin. Gamers must utilize each of the characters' unique combat and investigative skills to uncover Harley's vengeful plan and shut the gates on the urban mega-prison forever. In addition to experiencing a new storyline, fans can explore new environments and face-off against Harley's all new gang of thugs.



EDIT:apparently there's been some screw up with this,the GOTY is still out on May 29th,but the DLC will be available on May 30th..which is a bit odd...oh and the UK version will be out 4 months later in September disgust


COCKS!!
