haven't seen any bugginess yet, but the voice of Batman is off just enough to be noticeable.

That's funny, I didn't think the Origins Batman sounded off but thought the Blackgate one did, and it's the same guy. What happened to the normal Batman guy?

he's supposedly working on another Arkham game.

I finally figured out where the issue seems to be, for me at least.  When Batman is talking normally it sounds like Tim Conroy, but when he starts raising his voice it doesn't quite reach the same level of intensity.

discovered two collectibles last night I didn't realize even existed.  One is a series of plaques around the city that if you take pictures of with Detective vision add log entries about an old murder case, and the other is hidden anarchy symbols that you take also take pics of.

While the game is certainly more of the same and brings nothing very new to the table I am enjoying myself immensely

I've seen the A's around a bunch, and it says something about focusing on them in Detective mode, but I haven't been able to do anything with them.  I assumed I needed some tool that I don't have yet.  Is there something I should be doing (I tried pressing A)?

Just hold down the detective mode button. It's the same thing as taking shots of the ghost of Arkham things in the original AA.

Man, this game has a lot of bugs:

it's actually not that hard once you figure it out, but figuring it out can take a few tries.

Spoiler for Hiden:
just don't hit counter until the prompt comes up.  it's hard not hit it beforehand in anticipation (which result in you getting hit), but I found the game gave enough time to hit it once it popped up.

City.  Wide open spaces with the interior levels.

Ran into another bug where twice it didn't show on the map where to go for the story missions. I was running all over the place looking for a crime scene. Thankfully there were posts about it elsewhere and once I got to the locations I could continue with the story. Still really enjoying the game despite these annoying bugs.

Well, crap.  I'll probably never find those spots again since I cleared out everything around them.

Everything else I had done with detective mode to that point used the A button to focus on it, so it didn't even occur to me.

yeah, I doubt I'll find many more of the Anarchy ones.  I just happened to stumble across one while scanning an area for the Riddler transmitters.

Just got done fighting Copperhead. That was a really neat fight. Then took on the Mad Hatter right after and wow that was pretty damn fun too - until I ran into another bug where my daisy wouldn't float in the water. But as I learned with earlier bugs exiting the game and coming back will fix it.

Shame they didn't provide the WiiU version, as posted earlier and on Neogaf, it is for all intents and purposes the superior version without all the bugginess or crappiness. So a passable game. At least owners of the PC version can get a patch later on.

Woo that's low.

I can understand being soured by a bug that required a restart. But I've seen and played abysmal games and this one doesn't seem abysmal.

It's not abysmal. It's "Below Average." 50 is our median score, our new review guidelines says as much.

well, after some consideration, the Joker voice actor has the opposite issue of the Batman voice actor.  When is is talking softly it sounds off, but when he is being loud it sounds just like Luke Skywalker is back.

Patch for PC is now live. This Patch will fix the following:

 
•Fix for the issue that was causing credits, consumables, and profile progress to not be saved in Multiplayer.
•Fix for the Burnley Tower vent that Batman wasn't able to climb up
•Fix for Free Flow Focus mode not unlocking upon unlocking Shadow Vigilante rank 3
•Fixed player falling through elevators/world in most cases. For players that were stuck in free fall loop; if you are not back into the game or if it looks weird around you when you load the game, here are the steps.
•Go in pause menu and select Restart from Checkpoint.
•If Restart from checkpoint didn’t work, trying beating up all enemies around you.
•If there aren’t any enemies around you, try going through a door.
•Those steps should get you back into the game.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-11-01-warner-apologises-for-batman-arkham-origins-technical-problems


Patch coming next week to deal with
"Infinite Falling/Falling Out Of World"
"Unable To Continue Story"
and "FreeFlow Focus mode not unlocking upon reaching Shadow Vigilante rank 3"

Specific to the PC, an update recently went live to address the above issues, among other things.

However.....
Quote
Warner admitted it has so far failed to solve a rare issue that is corrupting saves on the Xbox 360 version only, but is continuing to investigate.

"Players have reported losing their saved game to data corruption," Warner said. "Specifically, when you try to choose a story slot to continue, it says 'Corrupted' and if you select it, an error message appears which says, 'The save is corrupt. Please delete it.' We believe we know what is causing this and need a few more days to validate before pushing a patch through."

Then there's "Ongoing Crashing/Freezing Issues" on Xbox 360 only.

"Players have reported recurring crashing and freezing while playing the game," Warner said. "We have been working hard to track down and resolve the problem as quickly as possible.  We believe we know what is causing these issues and need a few more days to validate before pushing this patch through. In the meantime, some players have managed to avoid the freezing by disconnecting their console from the Internet while playing."


so looks like i will be waiting a little longer before picking this up

woohoo!  Burnley fixed!

confirmed this last night. 

then I promptly completed a bunch of side missions after a visit to the popo station, botched the approach to the next part of the mission and watched the game hard lock the pc.  if I get the save corruption, I think I'll just play something else.

This one seems broken. Tried it like 7 times and either the hostage gets killed too soon or Deadshot doesn't fully go down.

Skipping this one.

alright, I was trying to unlock level 10 in Shadow Vigilante, 'get an A grade in a fight with a High threat level or higher'.  I was fighting crimes in progress, and only getting B's, so how did I finally get it?  taking down a single sniper on his own with a fumbled glide attack that ended up with me pouncing on him after he got knocked down saywhat

been doing a bunch of datapack collecting, but after 17 hours I've decided to focus on the main storyline and maybe come back to them later.

17 hours?  that's one long night...

just went through the gimmicky retardness that was the Firefly fight.  I would have knocked 10 points off the review just for how dumb that section was; it wasn't challenging just a lot of button/key mashing and camera angles deciding to switch for no good reason.

on another note, I finally realized that the Bat armor was inspired by Gears of War.  you don't notice it until the cutscene where he has the cap off, but I'm glad future bats changed the design biggrin

and done.  was going to work on a few more side missions after the end, but when I went into the church to destroy the Black Mask drug stash the game suddenly decided I couldn't swing from gargoyle to gargoyle AND silent/grate/vent takedowns would not work.  Got my money's worth, but I'm done and I'll youtube any optional scenes I didn't get through.  After 20 hours of play I think I agree with the GT score.

Put this one down for a few days. Booted it up last night and the patch appears to have corrupted my saves.

This kinda shit is why I use Gamefly.

Sounds like this should be ready to play right about the time Steam sells it for $5, sweet.
