Why You Should be Worried About Batman: Arkham Origins

OTL Gaming discusses the reasons why Warner Bros recent Batman announcement is more of a cause for concern than excitement. (Batman: Arkham Origins, PC, PS3, Warner Bros. Montreal, Wii U, Xbox 360)

At least wait until some more information comes out before being worried, geez.

then there would be nothing to write about and N4G would cease to exist.

I always felt that ideally gamers would find interesting articles and post them to share with their fellow gamers.

Instead we have folks creating blogs and submitting themselves to N4G. So that the articles are catered to this horrible community.

In the end N4G is a disease and articles and sites like these are just the puss filled lesions.

In terms of the game. Just wait and see. Nothing controversial or difficult about that. But being level headed does not get hits. So here we are.

Can someone explain to me if you feel the way you do about n4g and it's community why are you here now posting comments? Everyday I see atleast 1 comment like this usually from a person with 1 bubble and I just can't understand what would keep a person with what seems like disgust to stick around.

Exactly why would you stick around if you thought that bad about something, absolutely ridiculous. they probably have multiple accounts with diverse views like some weird internet schizo.

on topic the vita versions is looking very good.

My only concern is that it's not rocksteady making the game. I loved the other batman Arkham games. So lets hope they stick with what works
TopDudeMan  +   964d ago
Yes, I'm worried that the game might lose the spark and overall feel of quality it had back when they were making it.

Same...and the fact the lead guy in charge was the man behind the Incedible Hulk game and Prototype. Two horrible average games in my opinion. Someone like him should not be allowed near Batman

It's basicaly going to be an improved, reskinned Arkham City with more areas to explore...just a filler game untill Rocksteady do their game

"No word was issued on why Rocksteady isn’t being used".
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard it's because Warner Bros (as publisher) wanted to have 2 Batman games every 4 years, one being developed by Rocksteady, one developed by WB Montréal.

So if it's the case, that would explain why Rocksteady isn't involved in the development of Arkham Origins: they're probably already working on their next [Batman] game, coming in two years.

The least they could of done though is not make it part of the Arkham games

Make them separate Batman franchises so if one fails Rocksteady doesn't get related to it

1) If it's not broken, don't fix it. Arkham City was perfection. I'd rather have them build off AC than try to add in new mechanics or change existing ones

2) There are other excellent Batman writers. Scott Snyder and The Court of Owls, anyone? And just because Dini hasn't been confirmed, doesn't mean he's not involved

3) All Game Informer "reveal trailers" are like that. Look at the Thief reveal. The initial videos were behind-the-scenes stuff and interviews. The debut trailer came later. And E3's only about two months away

4) Um, maybe Rocksteady's working on a next-gen Batman game? Beyond: Two Souls is releasing in October 8th and that's a PS3 exclusive so...

I totally agree with you, I'm not worried unless the new studio tries to mix things up which I don't see happening considering Rocksteady is probably working on the next sequel.

I would rather have the continuation of the story before a prequel but not at the cost of a new studio helming the project.

I somehow feel A batman prequel is you know less desirable than moving forward with a sequel. Everyone wants to know what happens next. But im not against prequels. they better make sure that after arkham origins, the next game will be the continuation of the series Batman arkham 3: they can name it Batman: Gotham city
azshorty2003  +   964d ago
I have a feeling it'll be the same as Assassins Creed Brotherhood & Revelations. In the sense of, a sequel made by alternate teams to fill the yearly gap while the main team makes the true sequel.

Doesn't mean it won't be good, but it is likely being made to keep the cash flow incoming.
