Like I said, it looks awesome.

why can't I see the premier on the spike Live page? The camera man capturing the stage is downright RETARDED!!!

You can try from if you have some luck, but according to PRs over there, it's a non-deliberate technical issue.

Yea, I would say so.. The audio goes off often and the camera man is more interested in zooming into people's teeth than showing a broader view. And to make things worse, there's the really pathetic theatricals by Jack Black and all.

Although I'm sure this game will be amazing, I'm hoping in the 3rd game it will be a story where you play as the Joker setting up traps and devising evil plans. Of course, I guess it wouldn't be called Batman, but more of a spin-off. Obviously it couldn't all be against Batman since he works alone, but the Joker hates most of the other Batman universe criminals as well, so it could be against all of them where maybe you can even use your henchmen.

Batman Arkham Asylum is the perfect example of a 'great' game, and has a quality that all games should aim to for.

I'm not sure
Apart from the bosses being bad I loved AA,I just feel it's a little early to hype the sequel,the first is barely 6 months old.
ABizzel1  +   2176d ago
Why are we going back to AA. I loved Batman AA, but I thought it should have ended, or be set elsewhere. But nonetheless I will be getting this one as well.

@ ABizzel1
Obviously it's in the title "Arkham has moved"
AKA Arkham has been brought to the streets of Gotham.

On a side note, Joker now looks like my grandad LOL :D

xXKingofStingXx  +   2177d ago
I loved the last one but man was the last fight uninspiring and easy...hopefully joker puts up more of a fight this time around.
THE MAX SPEED 21  +   2177d ago
Good. Very good
MajestieBeast  +   2177d ago
I wouldve wanted they waited a little longer 4 months after release is a little fast for me if they take 2 years to make it then awesome 1 year is just minimal improvements.
LtSkittles  +   2177d ago
Excuse me, but all we have is a teaser, the ending definitely made it sure they were going to make a sequel anyways, and third RockSteady is a very good developer, because they had post-game support, adding more challenge maps for free, and last, but not least there is not a release date, so we don't know when to expect it.
dirthurts  +   2177d ago
That looked
It looks like they went with a darker grittier tone. I like it!
Joker is ticked.
Angry Moth  +   2177d ago
I hate to be negative but...
already? please tell me this isn't coming out in 2010
topdawg122  +   2177d ago
Wow that was pretty fast to announce a sequel.
HOpe the story is good

For being off topic.
SUPREME RULER  +   2177d ago
this game will be hot
must buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!
LtSkittles  +   2177d ago
What is with all the negative comments? Seriously, we know that RockSteady can deliver when they make a promise. B:AA was like watching Batman Begins, but it was longer, and hopefully the sequel is long, or longer, and I hope there is a lot of replayability just like the first one, and last, but not least I hope they don't change too much.

Wonder if this will take place during the Frank Miller Dark Knight storyline. Or even Batman Beyond.
4pocalyps3  +   2177d ago
first day purchase again. batman aa was awesome and this should be even better coming from rocksteady!
Vortex3D  +   2177d ago
Joker is out again right after he was captured in Batman AA1? Maybe Batman should join Joker since he can't seem to ever put him away.
Baka-akaB  +   2177d ago
was this supposed to be different from any usual batman story , darker or not ?
LtSkittles  +   2177d ago
Do not read if you have not beat AA


After Batman beat Joker by punching him in the face with the explosive gel you see the Joker on a stretcher, and then as Batman, and Gordon are about to leave there's a message on the police radio about Two-Face, so hopefully that's where we see Batman go after Two-Face.


He could be older, or it could be effects from Titan.

If you check him out in the trailer, he was visibly older. As in Elderly. Could be an aftereffect from AA, or some actual time could have past. The Harley tending to him might be the original.

Though quite frankly, I'd rather see Two-face as the main bad guy. Not just have the Joker again.
Rowsdower  +   2177d ago
i like
the black around jokers eyes, maybe i'm seeing things but his makeup looks more like Heath Ledger style joker, or it could be the quality of the video.

i'm looking forward to it cause this is all about story, the graphics and gameplay are there, so as long as the story is compelling its day one for me.
beeeffess  +   2177d ago
Looks brilliant but I hope it is more than minor improvements.

Does this trailer mean Gotham has become one big asylum or they literally meant there is a new asylum?
SUPREME RULER  +   2177d ago
Poor joker
he looks sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! poor guy!

As much as I loved Arkham Asylum, I had hoped the next game would've been set in the open Gotham City instead of the linear paths inside Arkham buildings.
ZILLA  +   2176d ago
thats how great of a game it is,now part 2.dammm i cant fckin wait.
riksweeney  +   2176d ago
Hopefully it won't tell you exactly what to do every step of the way like in the last one. There was no need to tell me to enter detective mode every time, let me figure it out myself the third time it's needed.
niminator  +   2176d ago
Look at Joker's blood pack

It's says "Property of Gotham General" so that may be one of the locations or where the Joker is based in this one.
MK_Red  +   2176d ago
Now this is what I call a big surprise premiere, not some punk rock band game.
Glad to see one of the best games of this generation getting a sequel but I'm a little worried that it might be a little bit too soon. I hope the final game is a true and polished sequel to the superb original Batman AA.

Looks great cant wait to play it.
