are batman games open-world?
CustardTrout  +   629d ago
Some are, these tend to be.
silenius  +   629d ago
Oh yes! please make it happen!
Just got instant boner only by thinking of it! :D
Th3 Chr0nic  +   629d ago
i take that to mean you havent played the arkham games. SHAME ON YOU DO IT NAAOOO!!
Y_5150  +   629d ago
I never started playing the Arkham games until Arkham City release. When I heard about Arkham Asylum, I thought he's in the asylum no way being inside a prison would be an open world game. Well I was ignorant. It was a full blown open world game, really good one. Arkham City furthered the great experience.
RetrospectRealm  +   628d ago
Full blown open world? No damn way. Asylum compared to City is so freaking linear it's not even funny.
carreirabr  +   629d ago
Not really, just hubs.

Go there clean the area, proceed to the next, or mostly go backtracking ad infinitum.

AA was great, AC has a worst story and a huge amount of backtracking. The world is not that big, and you have like 7 hubs to explore.
_FantasmA_  +   628d ago
I agree. Batman was my favorite superhero as a kid and I wasn't impressed by the AA demo. Bought AC and was also disappointed. The game lacks depth and feels like a movie game, a really well made movie game, but it still feels like its a mainstream demo product. The only thing it needed was Mountain Dew and Dorito billboards in the small ass city. I beat the game and found all the Riddler trophies in a week and traded it in right away. Such wasted potential.

Batman: Arkham series are great games... but it's time for a new game. Rocksteady should create a new IP.
CyrusLemont  +   629d ago
This can't be connected to the Rocksteady games, it'll make Batman a baby, unless Batman travels back in time to save the world or something lol, but then how would that explain the existence of the Justice League? They wouldn't be around then either.
Sharius  +   629d ago
that why they call it's fiction

CyrusLemont  +   629d ago
Sure it's fiction, and it can be magical as much as it wants, but when you've established a world, a timeline, and the fact that it's grounded by relatable elements to reality, you can't disrupt that without a sound explanation. You'll have entropy then haha. If it's in Rocksteady's universe and has an explanation for it's setting (e.g. time travel, alternate universe) then I'm cool with it! :)
Sevir  +   629d ago
I know its weird but Batman as a whole has been around since the 50s
What's been happening is he's been reimagined every decade to be more relevant. The justice league has been around since the 50s.

Still it would be better if they gave the Arkham franchise a Bruce Wayne origin story instead of jumping to a timeline with a Batman using different technology than the one set in the Arkham Franchise. It just doesn't make sense.

Also I'm pretty sure Rocksteady said they were done with Batman and moving on to other things, especially since Warner Bros Montreal confirmed earlier this month that They were the ones handling this next game and not Rocksteady.
SilentNegotiator  +   628d ago
But to be fair, Batman is one of the only characters that DC basically refuses to give a true reboot to. His Boy Wonder count is getting ridiculous and the story lines all being in tandem no longer make sense.

It's the reason that I can't get myself to really keep up with comics; so many of them are like soap operas in which time rarely passes but the events stack and clutter each other every week.
Sandmano  +   629d ago
Agreed I don't like this idea keep the justice league out of my BATMAN!!
Williamson  +   629d ago
Arkham city is one of my favorite games I ever played so this is good news to me. Arkham city set up for so many great plots and side stories so Im hoping this game is a sequel.
CustardTrout  +   629d ago
This game will win my favour if they finally put Crazy Quilt in it as one of the main bad guys.
Pro_TactX  +   629d ago
As much as I love the Batman Arkham games, I have no interest at all in playing a 1960's Batman game.
XXXL  +   629d ago
Yeah I agree I was lookin forward to continuing the present day arkham arc. Scarecrows plan, hush, azrael, etc.
KillrateOmega  +   628d ago
Same here. Not that I'm entirely against the idea of a Batman game set in the 50s, I would just rather them to continue on and eventually finish the series' current timeline before moving on to alternate timelines.

I also have doubts about the inclusion of the Justice League. Even if it's only a few characters or one of the more grounded heroes like Green Arrow, I just feel like they would detract from the Arkham experience. Arkham, just as the name suggests, is very much a Batman experience.

However, this is just a rumor and this IS Rockstar that we're talking about, so I'm sure that they'll manage to do a great job regardless of the next game's premise.

I still want that Gotham By Gaslight game to come out! I would like Rocksteady to work on some other heroes not just Batman.
Unztayble  +   629d ago
YES! YES! YES! more Batman from Rocksteady! I can't wait to see how they're gonna improve the combat system, how it's gonna look and what the story will be. I love that character.
Root  +   629d ago
So it's a prequel....lame

Why do developers do this...they do two games, write themselfs into a corner then do prequels. Those games should be left to handhelds or a brand new trilogy.

Find a way to keep the franchise going forward
CEOSteveBallmer  +   629d ago
I agree with you. Would you rather want a game in "backwards"? I mean yeah why not go forward? So the ones disagreeing with you would want a "prequel" than a "sequel"? its like having halo or uncharted and then releasing UC2 and halo 2 but the story happens before the first one. then they release UC3 and halo 3 but the story is the prequel of the prequel. There's a reason why there is number on things. There are exceptions of course like devil may cry 3 and MGS3. But Most people would want a sequel. WHY?? simple, dont you want to know what happens next??
Root  +   629d ago
I feel it's laziness in my opinion

With Metal Gear Solid 3 is was kind of needed since we needed to know more about Big Boss but that should of been it. It's why I'm not sure about MGS5 being another prequel...a PSV game fair enough or a non number game for consoles, that would be fine.

I want to see what happens to Arkham City or what happened with the Joker
Th3 Chr0nic  +   629d ago
why does everyone think it will be a prequel and all that bs. you guys never heard of time travel or other rare comic book ideas. i mean wtf kind of people are you
I read this all in the Mario voice (accent). lol too funny >_<

%100 Agreed though, it's like these people have never touched a comic.
Sandmano  +   629d ago
I've been asking for a prequel for ages where batman isn't batman where you start off when he isn't even called batman something along the lines if the animated movie mask of the phantasm, would be epic...

"Let's hope it's more batman animated series then Adam west" wholeheartedly agree with that comment.

There is too much fighting and not enough detective work in the Arkham games. I always get bored after 5 hours in.
aliengmr  +   629d ago
I really hope they drop that useless GFWL.
aliengmr  +   628d ago
Wow, 2 people prefer GFWL? A platform that MS barely supports and has been dropped by others? GFWL can't even update in the background and forces you to exit the game to do it. It also ties the service to the saves. Hell, Origin and Uplay are superior to GFWL.

Then there was the fact it needed a workaround just to work with Win 8. Yea, awesome service that GFWL.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   629d ago
I don't know but I would rather want a sequel than a "Prequel". If they want to incorporate the justice league, why do it in the past? why not do it after the events of arkham city? And choosing 50's 60's? goodluck for batman having cool gadgets at that time.
Sevir  +   629d ago
I thought Rocksteady Confirmed that they were done with
The Arkham Franchise to go work on something new and fresh, and wasn't it confirmed that it was Warner Bros Montreal at the helm of the 3rd game in the Batman:Arkham Franchise?

I doubt rocksteady has any involvement in this game what so ever.
Scholla  +   629d ago
That 50-60's thing is throwing me off big time, I'm really concerned if any of this is true esp. Rocksteady not being at the helm.

But on another note imagine how Batman will look on Next-gen wow! Now thats something to look forward to.

All I want is a new epic batman that allows me to use the batman movie suits either off the bat (no pun) or in my second playthrough as a unlockable.
lizard81288  +   629d ago
I think i'll wait for GoTY edition
As cool as these games are, the DLC is dumb as balls. Pre-order at Amazon to get X, Preorder at Gamestop to get X, ect, ect. New maps, challenge modes, ect.
RTheRebel  +   628d ago
Likewise but, i want too see if they will make a collector's edition and if it will be worth it ;)
Jaqen_Hghar  +   628d ago
A man may have to wait for the reviews this time. A man doesn't trust this game with no Dini writing, Hamil voice acting, and stretching the timeline as well as involving other heros. A man hopes his gut is wrong.
ironfist92  +   628d ago
Paul Dini (original writer for the games) isnt coming back, Mark Hamill's done with Joker, WB confirmed that Rocksteady WONT be involved with this Silver Age/Prequel/Justice League/50's Batman bullshit.

Cant say my hopes are high for this, even if Rocksteady are developing it.

See Hitler's reaction:

a sequel is better prequels are annoying now a days
SAYGUH  +   628d ago
No, no, no. We need a last hurah!! I'm thinkin the batman of the future with what's his name? Terry Beginnice or whatever? We need him, he's Bruce Wayne's successor & the future. OMG!!
masa2009  +   628d ago
I'd rather not have characters like Superman.
He is too cartoonish and over the top and doesn't really mesh with something dark and urban like the Batman and the Arkham games.
I think there was a reason why they steered clear from using characters who were too out of this world until now.
jc48573  +   628d ago
Arkham is like the best thing that ever happened in this generation.
masa2009  +   628d ago
It'd be the best thing if Batman could move at a decent clip without me having to press A for hours on end.
Other than that, yeah it's superb.
