Warner Montreal on Arkham Origins: "[We] hope when you play the game, you’ll love it" - AusGamers

AusGamers has interviewed Warner Bros. Montreal's Eric Holmes, creative director on Batman: Arkham Origins, who talks candidly about their choice of voice-actors, as well as much more.

"Our characters are younger. They’re less formed than the other versions of the characters you’ve seen in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Getting that youthful energy, and unformed nature of those characters, led us to recasting those characters. So really, we wanted to get the best possible characters we could, and we went through an exhaustive casting campaign --not just to get the best actors we could, but to get people who sound like Kevin, to get people that can give a performance like Mark, but also have that edge of youthfulness.

So you won’t find anyone more respectful of their work than this team; than those actors too. I know that they love their performance, but they’re bringing something of their own to it as well. So I think ultimately... I understand people are passionate about Kevin, I am too, but I think that you’re going to see these people bring something new to it, which fits our story... but I hope when you play the game, that you’ll love it." (Batman: Arkham Origins, E3, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

It looks awesome, hey wait so did aliens lol. If rock steady gave this guys their blessing I will trust

I hope they took some lessons from RockSteady and studied the first two games. They don't need to change anything, they just need to build up on the foundation Rocksteady has laid down.

Asylum was a good game, Arkham was dreadful and this looks like another load of shite aswell. unless your 12 years of age that is. and b man looks like hes on steroids.

I used to hate the idea of the bubble system since it prevented long conversations.

But now that it's reset, i miss it to death.

Whilst I prefered Asylum to City, City was still great, if you don't think so you've very poor taste.
sync90  +   777d ago
So, do you think everyone that doesn't enjoy the same things as you has poor taste? i think city was massively overated. its called having an opinion.

No, but I do think people who think good games are "another load of shite" have bad taste.

MrAnderson  +   777d ago
Yes, your taste is poor, just like people who think Final Fantasy 13 was a good game have poor taste, not to mention you're acting like an immature brat in every post you make, let me guess you were at 1 bubble before they got reset? LOL, grow up SON.

When I saw City compared to Asylum I saw the jump, I saw the difference and I knew I was going to enjoy it. However this looks like a reskinned Arkham City game, a quick cash in to get the most out of this gen before it ends and while Rocksteady are developing their game.
Jagsrock  +   777d ago
This game seems like more of a stop gap between Arkham city and the true sucessor being developed by rocksteady. From what ive seen it just looks like an extension of arkham city with minor upgrades which isn't necessarily bad but I'm not sure if it will be worth a $60 price tag especially with games like GTA 5, Watchdogs, and Destiny coming out around the same time.
