Curious how they managed to get the upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum a Teen rating from the ESRB? Well, it seems the Dark Knight won't be killing anyone in the game.
That makes sense batman doesn't kill in general.
Truth. He just pummels the crap out of them. That distinction is probably why TDK was PG-13 instead of R.
True, He just makes you wish you were dead.
THE real reason that batman doesnt kill is.. so they can continue the comic with the villains coming back over and over again. No one die, the loop will never end so does the comic.
he doesnt kill cause batman is a wimp. Doesnt have the coyones. Lobo would rip Batman apart.
no death = no buy.
The Batman doesn't kill.
You sound ignorant. Some of the greatest games ever had no death. they get defeated but it never says they are dead. No one dies in Street Fighter 4 but it is still incredible.
i think it's cool that batman does not intentionally kill people. also, i've never seen him with a gun. cool heroes do not use gun. macguyver and chuck norris never needed guns.
I'm not sure about the past, but recently in comics Batman did have a gun for a very important purpose.
no brain = DragonWarrior46534
you sound sad :/
no DragonWarrior46534 = better N4G
falling from a 30 feet platform in one the trailers though....tough baddies.
awww, did I hurt somebody's feelings? Poor little kid. Just go ask your mommy for some cookies and milk and I promise you will alot better. Play the Wii much guys? I think its made you guys soft. Grown ups play Xmen origins,, kids play Batman Arkham.
ok well i guess i will ask your mom for some milk huh?
Grown ups argue about video games on the Internetz, too.
2 Bubbles... TWO BUBBLES... and you're wasting time ARGUING WITH HIM!!!!
Wait... so farhsa2008 is DragonWarrior46534's brother? I'm confused. ;-)
That Batman wont be killing anyone, because Batman don't kill. Now, Joker on the other-hand do kill and I expect a lot of killing coming from him and the rest of the criminals in this game.
I don't really see how it makes any difference to be honest... instead of a death animation for enemy characters you'll get a writhing around in agony animation instead. It really shouldn't change the gameplay dynamic
is because Batman does not kill.....which many people have said already above. To have batman actually kill his enemies in the game would be a slap in the face of the franchise.
I'm not surprised by this. Batman doesn't typicaly kill unless Tim Burton is helming.
That's true. He still did a much better job than Shumacher. WOOF!
At least the Batsuit doesn't have nipples in Arkham Asylum.
Well if we're gonna talk about killing in batman, look at Shumacker. He single handely killed the original series. He should have been blacklisted after Batman and Robin..."CHILLLLL".
Didn't those guys in those movies die by "accident?" I mean, who knew that the gargoyle statue in Batman 1 was that heavy and would cause Jack to fall to his doom?
I quote that movie all the time! "Cool party!" "Everybody chill!" It was so bad!!! I actually liked Batman Forever though. It maintained the Burton feel...but it wasn't as dark...and the dialogue was much worse.
If he did kill he would have no enemies am I right? Most of his enemies either die by dumb luck or die by their own back fired plan. Joker has been on a screw up/cheating death pattern since the start.
But you beat me to it.
How is this news? Of course Batman doesn't kill. Doesn't anybody remember DC vs. MK? Remember how the DC superheroes didn't kill?
New to Batman? He doesn't kill period.
Death or not the game looks awesome and is a day one purchase for me. I finally saw the Watchmen(thinking it would suck) and totally loved it by the way.
Well, he's no Punisher (my fav comic). The game looks really good though. Wish we got to see something like The Punisher game for the original Xbox, but in this gen. God, I never got tired of torturing and executing those poor drug addicts lol!
Unless he's in a tim Burton film. Then he'll shoot into a crowd, throw your ass off a building, and strap a bomb to your chest, smirking while he does it.
i hope this game turns out to be really good,most batman games suck its time for a good batman game the actors that did the voices were from the cartoon (i think) so i'm waiting to get this game in my hands and see how it is,fingers crossed...Now comes the part where I relieve you, the little people, of the burden of your failed and useless lives. But, as my plastic surgeon always said if you gotta go, go with a smile :)
