It's Important to Feel Like Batman When You Play A Game As Batman

Kotaku - "What would Batman do?" That's a driving principle behind the upcoming game Batman: Arkham Origins. And, sure, that's what the people making any game about a famous character are going to say. Still, how do they do that?

Part of it is having you control a guy that looks like Batman. Part of it is having you not kill people. There's more to it than that.

"I'm going to assume you have some passing interest in Batman if you're playing a Batman game," the game's creative director Eric Holmes told me recently while I played a demo of Origins at a PlayStation event in New York City. "You kind of want to play him as he's classically depicted." (Batman, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I don't know what Rocksteady is working on now, or if they are only able to work on DC characters because WB now owns them, but I and many others thank them for making not only an awesome game based on a licensed character, but also an overall awesome game despite the license it's based on. Gameplay was perfect, story was great, graphics were done really well, and use of characters was perfect.

Now I just hope a developement team can come, have a team as dedicated as to a license as Rocksteady is, and make a great X-Men game. Origins was good, and people say Deadpool was decent, but I want a AAA game. Can play as various X-Men characters, have cameos of other characters, awesome gameplay, various locals, etc. I would truly like to at least see a critically acclaimed X-Men game someday, a game that gets scores as good as the Arkham game.

Supposedly they are working on the Sequel to Arkham City where as WB Games is working on Arkham Origins. It would be really good if they brought X-Men Legends back for Next gen. X-Men Legends 3, not that garbage we got called Destiny.

If I stay there can be no party. I must be out there in the night, staying vigilant. Where ever a party needs to be saved, I'm there. Where ever there are masks or if there's tom foolery in joy, I'm there. But sometimes I'm not because I'm out there in the night staying vigilant, watching, lurking, running, jumping, hurdling, sleeping. No I can't sleep. You sleep, I'm awake. I don't sleep. I don't blink. Am I a bird? No, I'm a bat. I am Batman. Or am I? Yes, I am Batman.
