Batman: Arkham City

Post  Gasman40 on Thu May 26, 2011 8:37 am

Sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City is looking to be pretty incredible. The map is said to be over 3 times the size of the original game. There are many new characters making an appearance and Hugo Strange looks like he could be one of the main Villans along with Joker. The release date is set for October 18 adding to the already huge line up of games for the second half of the year.
Anyway, who played the first game and is thinking of picking this one up? Im going to pick up the first one this weekend hopefully.
Add any additional information which you know of.

I will pick it up, but if it has that stupid fucking x-ray vision bullshit I won't be happy.
AA was good but you basically had to play the entire game viewing it through an x-ray machine. It looked like shit and you could never really appreciate the visuals/environment.

First day buy for me. I loved the original. It was a superhero/comic videogame done right. I don't know lots about Batman lore, but its great going up against countless bad guy bosses and background environments are an eye opener. I am really looking forward to this new one as, like you said gasman, it is 3 times as big (and longer) as the first one was and have lots more characters. Cant wait for the sequel!

Picked up AA today and its fantastic. Definitely see what all the buzz is about. I'd recommend picking it up tristo if you haven't already got it and you're into action adventure. Great buy for $29!

Looking great! I love how you can glide around the city. Shouldn't be too much of a chore getting from one end to the other.

Im thinking of buying the comics that they released as the prequel to this. There are five of them and they look pretty sweet.

I bought them the other day. They're on their way now. They got paul dini and some of the other writers from Batman:TAS to write some comics as a prequel to the game. I've got all 5 coming. Can't wait to read them.

No surprise really, but this game is getting great reviews! Apparently a 25 hour game as well. (doubt it, but should be of decent length none the less). Looking forward to picking it up this week.

Im about an hour into it, but I havent done the catwoman stuff yet. Should I do it now before I get too far into it or can I leave it until I finish the game?

They throw a bit of cat woman stuff in later on but it's not worth it. I found the cat woman stuff really annoying mainly because she's so weak and hasn't got that many abilities. I'd just play through the game and then come back to it. There is plenty to do though. WHen you finish the game on either normal or hard (i think) you unlock an extra play through mode where you start the game again with all your weapons but harder enemies. This doesn't over wright your original playthrough though, it's separate. so it's like a bonus story campaign but harder which runs parallel to your original (riddler challenges are shared between etc..). then there is the catwoman stuff and then finally the challenge modes. Sooooooo much to do!

.

Finally, getting some real DLC, not just boring challenge room stuff or skins. This is a 2 hour solo campaign about Harley Quinn's revenge on Batman. Comes out late May. Anyone else keen?

Featuring over two hours of fresh gameplay, it'll be available to download beginning on May 30 on PS3 and Xbox 360. Pricing has yet to be confirmed
Warner says: "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 utilise 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.
