I don't expect this one to be anywhere near a Rocksteady title.

With a title like "We are Legion" you have obviously seen footage from this game. How can you say that? It looks almost identical to all the really good gameplay mechanics from the last game.

Why do you say that?

What does my name have to do with seeing or not seeing footage? It's from The Bible.
ZombieKiller  +   850d ago
Because during the fight with Ra'as Al Ghul he says "We are Legion" over and over again. I've never heard that anywhere else so considering you commented on a Batman article with a name like that, I figured you were a major fan or something of the sort.

These guys (WB Montreal) helped with Arkham City Armored Edition so they know the roots of the game series. Not to mention, Eric Holmes....this guy has me sold with the way he talks about the series as a game. He thinks the game is amazing and instead of changing things, they add things in layers to the gameplay. Not to mention the passion for the charaters story seems to date back from when the guy was a kid. I had little faith at first but after watching all the interviews and gameplay demos, I bet this game will be just as good. In some respects MAYBE even better (don't mind my hype, I do apologize) due to the fact that they have so much freedom to create a story that already has established roots.
Look what Nick309 says below me, WB games has not only brought the Batman series to life in the game realm, but also revivied the dying Mortal Kombat series! I don't think at this point they would give their biggest star (Batman) some shoddy treatment.

I love wb games. A batman series that dosent stink, saving mortal kombat. WB is one of the best publishers.

Pretty much whats wrong with the AAA industry. Over budget and over staffed studios.
ShaunCameron  +   859d ago
But this game is being funded by the provincial government, though.
Sadist3  +   860d ago
That's wassup. Hopefully more DC games from both Montreal and Rocksteady

This tells me that WB is pleased with the outcome of Arkham Origins. I bet this is telling us to prepare for a sequel to their series.
I can see it happening where RockSteady makes the game one year and WB Montreal the next year.

Thats fine. As long as the series quality doesn't deterriorate like the Call Of Duty franchise has I don't care. Arkham games, to me are known for the quality of game. If that doesn't change, THEN BRING THE BAT!

I'll die to see a retelling of The Dark Knight Returns or The Killing Joke.
