Kotaku writes "Game delays are big news and bad news. But once a game comes out and proves to be good, game delays are often forgotten news. Batman: Arkham Asylum was delayed in 2009. Its lead creator recalled that forgotten moment."
I would much rather take a delayed game that is great than a game that is crappy because it has to keep to a release date.
The devs invested a little more time in making the game better. It tells consumers that they're not just greedy jerks. They wanted to make a better product. AA is an incredible game. They made him feel powerful. For a character that doesn't have powers that's a good thing. I hate delays as much as the next guy, but I'd take a full and complete game over a half assed rushed product any day.
At least it was good. Some games need to be delayed or at least given a beta (Modern Warfare 2).
Blasphemy, MW2 is a good game despite it's glitches and very very short single player that offered nothing more than a 60 dollar waste.
batman is gay Newest Superman is str8
Batman has, on multiple occasions, defeated Superman when it became necessary to do so. I would go as far as to say that Batman is probably the most formidable person in the entire DC universe.
You know, if a game that was delayed comes out and is as good as Batman was, then you tend TO forget that, and the next time those same devs have a game that gets delayed, they get trusted more that it's for a good reason. If it's time well spent, then who cares if it was delayed a few months (of course, if it's delayed time after time, then it becomes a problem, especially if it never gets used properly. Don't want to abuse the privilege). I'm not sure why Kotaku decided to remind us about this fact for no real reason. I'm sure it's because their favorite system (360) didn't get the exclusive DLC...and they are used to the other side getting all those perks out of multiplatform games. But, then again, knowing Kotaku, it could be anything.
...Batman: AAA , thanks to that delay. Sometimes, a delay actually pays off for a dev.
it should be 'batman: arkham asylum awesome'. lets hope the batman aa sequel has enough polish considering it's quite a short gap between this game and the sequel.
I don't get Kotaku's point. Who cares if it was delayed, it's not like we're still waiting for it. And besides, it was probably best for the game and it showed. They can delay Batman Arkham Asylum 2 for all I care just as long as they do what they need to do to deliver us another great game. Crap > Kotaku
You know how they are... -End statement
Aaaaaand that's why it's was as good as it was. Imagine if it had come out in June...
i recently bought batman AA as i saw it for £10 at in my local asda for PC. I completed it last night and can not believe that the game was as good as people said it was i lost interest games based on superheros over the years with all rip off games but this game has truly reinvented the genre so if this is what get from a game getting delayed then why complain?
Kotaku's articles all seem really crappy to me. Of course it was delayed. Aren't all games? The game industry is worse than anything else as far as delays go (that includes you, Boeing) I mean, just look at FFXIII. It's what, three years into this gen of consoles and FFXIII JUST came out. Wsn't that supposed to be a release title? I always expect games to be delayed, so I was actually kindof happy when B:AA only got delayed for two months.
