Batman: Arkham Asylum
« on: August 28, 2009, 08:46:02 pm »
I was wondering has anyone or is anyone planning on picking this up. The game is still a few days from release in Australia. Still I have started hearing good things about it. I downloaded the demo of it and enjoyed it also I remember hearing the guys from the Australian Gamer Podcast mentioning it looks real good. I think Gaming Steve even mentioned he is thinking about getting it.

So anyone else looking into this, if so what do you all think?

Batman is slow as hell. Joker kicks ass. And Harley looks damn good. That all I got to say about that.

Got it today. Probably the only Batman game I've ever enjoyed, and probably one of the best superhero games in general. The only graphical problem is the lip-synching, which is pretty bad. But its a beautiful game besides that.
:O
Also, Gunner is one of the children.

Im going to probably be waiting for the PC release, and then buying that. Unless the pc release is at the same time as console. You can tell i havnt had any idea about this until i read about how good it apparantly is on line.

The PC release dates are September 15th for the US, and the 18th for the EU. I'm looking forward to it :)

Yeha ill get it around september 20th then. Looks really good, the only other game that i actually really want is Splinter Cell Conviction this one looks half decent (( im excluding major releases, WOW:cataclysm, SC2, Diablo3, Opflashpoint2, BF1943. Thats about my major titles. I usually randomly pick up games when i see them and if i see a review, But those games are my certains. when and if they come out.

I played the demo of it in the stores, and came home and downloaded the PC demo, which is better than the store demo.

It does seem to be a lot of fun, it does seem to be a very linear game, with not a lot of choice in directions to go.  Not a lot of replayablity.  I'll probably pick it up off of Steam next year when it's $20.

Got this today. So far enjoying it mostly just fun picking off Jokers goons one by one as the rest of them start wetting themselves trying to find where I am hiding. Strange how a lot of guards don't ever look up.

I thought that in the demo, hang from a gargoyle statue guy is walking towards you he should see you even without looking up and he doesn't notice.

Got it and I am loving it. I've always hated stealth games like Splinter cell but I gave this one a try since it is a Batman game. Best one yet and it is really fun to slowly pick off a room of guys.

This game makes me pelvic thrust in an obscene fashion. I mean that in the best possible way.

Finished it in a day? It took me awhile, but I was kinda looking for all the trophies and stuff.
