Here’s What’s Bothering Me About Batman: Arkham Origins

Kotaku: "I watched the trailer for the upcoming Batman game that got released earlier this week and immediately had one inescapable thought: You can’t tell it’s a prequel. That’s not a good thing."

Thats totally my problem with it aswell, instead of looking like a prequel it looks like a quick cash in. He dosen't look younger and his armor/gadgets, as many people have pointed out, look better then the ones we find in the past two games which are set in the future. I don't see why they just didn't make a prequel when he became Batman and met the Joker for the first time. Oh and I don't get Deathstroke being in the game aswell, I mean he's a guy whos managed to take on the entire Justice League by himself but even with a lesser experienced Batman he's someone going to manage to take him on.

It's a big problem as well since the main voice actor has been changed. If Batman looks the same then it's going to look weird seeing someone else play him. Think I'm going to have to pass on this one. I'll wait for Rocksteadys next game

I can always go back to Arkham City or Asylum if I want more. I've been wanting to do so anyways. Origins, sigh....maybe a rent. Learned a big lesson as they tend to release GOTY editions, which I doubt is going to happen with this "origins." In all honesty, this Batman makes the other Batman look young, which doesn't make any sense.

He does meet Joker for the 1st time, sorry if that's a spoiler.

So because he has some stubble on his chin he is older? Because he has better armor means he is more experienced?

Its not like this is his first night as Batman, he's been doing it for 2 years already, he is still very much a myth as that suits his training. We've seen nothing of his gadgets. In the trailer he gets caught unexpectedly by Deathstroke, he was setup, to eager to pound some thugs. Deathstroke then takes him to school, if not for the interruption from Deadshot, who knows if he would of walked away.

So I'm very much looking forward to this game, the premise is pretty cool and I loved the other games.

In the dark knight films, didnt he downgrade some aspects of his suit aswell?

So maybe he;' heavily armoured here because he's younger and more vulnerable, but later on he becomes more experienced, and doesnt need much protection as it weighs him down?

Thats how I see it. When youre rich and young, you tend to go all out, especialy when youre just starting off as a viigilante, where safety is of more importance.

I can tell it's a prequel, everyone isn't on steroids.

Batman looks pretty roided up to me.

I am pumped for this one

And it doesn't bring much new to the series. Previewers aren't so psyched about it.
