The big surprise from the VGA's was the new Batman game as announced by the Joker himself! This should be a treat for all!
Totally unexpected. LOOKS AWESOME. More open world, Gotham is gonna take a beating.
Rocksteady has already proven themselves to be a kickass developer. I can't wait to see how they'll handle the sequel.
But I wanted somthing bigger, it's kinda expected that there would be a second one after the 1st did so well
It does look like they're gonna go for a more open world and expansive game. Basically what I wanted after play Batman AA. Can't wait.
Can't wait to see what kind of cool moves Batman has in the sequel. Go Rocksteady ! Go !
and I thought they announced a L4D sequel too soon?!.. Come on!, it came out this year and already there's the sequel announced?... We all know it was coming, but this soon is BS... It's like GOW3 for example, we all know it was going to be, but it took three years, and it was announced 1 year later, not 3 months!...
I dont want to sound negative about this BUT, does this mean AA2 is a 2010 release? isnt that a bit too soon? I would like a longer development cycle. If this doesnt mean a 2010 release why to announce it so early? Well, I dont know. Good news I suppose.
I can see why it would have a shorter development cycle, it's using the same engine as the original it looks like and they are likely getting a lot of funding this time around. The first, while an absolutely phenomenal game, seemed somewhat unfinished as the final battle/ending felt rushed and a lot of core Batman villains were unrepresented. This shouldn't give as much hell as Left 4 Dead 2, because they never promised DLC unlike Valve and they actually gave us a lot of free goodies shortly after release. Hopefully this one will do even better and they will branch out to other comic book villains, such as Superman who still needs to redeem himself from all the god-awful games he's starred in.
a new Batman by these guys will do it.
rocksteady just beat IW and ND for the best studio of the year, this is bullsh!t
they deserve it. We all knew U2 and MW2 were going to be great but Batman was surprising and unexpected!
It certainly is. ND deserved it for sure. Damn it!
A studio that came out of no where made one of the best DC superhero games ever, not to mention the Unreal Engine looks amazing in Batman: AA. I think they deserve some credit, Infinity Ward and Naughty Dog are already established studios who have received much praise over the years.
gameplay wise we've seen modern warfare and uncharted numerous times. I don't recall ever playing a game like arkham asylum. A game that blended stealth, brawling, puzzles and platforming... ha, i just realized i described among thieves right there. Among Thieves is awesome and i love it but game play wise it didn't seem like too much had changed from the other tps cover system games. Arkham Asylum felt really unique to me. Attack it all you want, it's not really necessary though. I'm not knocking ND or Uncharted 2. I'm just saying that to me Among Thieves felt like something i had already played before. AA on the other hand did not.
That was an epic intro.
THAT was the "biggest surprise premiere in VGA history" Seriously? Look, I'm happy we're getting a Batman AA 2. But that really wasn't what I had in mind.
They just announced the new star wars game is fuk!n unleashed 2 man damn!! I wanted battle front 3.
I was like "WTF, I thought the first Force Unleashed got average reviews"
We already knew it was coming. I guess it's a good thing I don't bother going to Gametrailers or watching their crappy VGAs. Saved me a lot of time as I knew the show was going to fail.
And these developers have already proven themselves worthy of handling the PS3's architecture, so I have no doubt in my mind that both console versions will be spectacular. Not only that, but thanks to the Joker content, the PS3 version has sold more, meaning they will be more likely this time to put just as much -- if not more -- effort into the sequel to keep the PS3 fanbase happy.
..Best Batman game ever Who is Rocksteady by the way, I've never heard of them? At first, I thought it was RockStar. You were stuck in the Asylum all game I wonder if it will be an open world Gotham City. I know it will be good.
RockSteady was bought by Eidos, Eidos published the game, and RockSteady developed the game.
this show is fixed.AC got best action adventure over uc2???? lol.and rocksteady over IW and ND i dont care if they just wanna show RS some respect this is about the best and ND was the best dev in that group for the year.
I hope that RockSteady releases the Joker dlc for the 360, not that I have it on the 360, but I think everyone should be able to play as the Joker now. RockSteady is like the Christopher Nolan, David Goyer, and Christian Bale of the video game world. Totally unexepected, and I hope they keep making Batman video games.
I think that PS3 fans have been able to experience it for a good amount of time, and I'm sure that 360 fans would love to play as the Joker. I mean, who wouldn't, especially with Mark Hamill as the voice actor!
They need to improve the combat, increase enemy types, change it so you don't have to be in detective mode all the time, reduce or get rid of the number of riddler trophies. If it wasn't for gaining experience points to spend on upgrades, I wouldn't have even bothered. Artificial way to lengthen the game. Also, get rid of the metroid gameplay system. They did it in the first so change it up in the second.
It kinda sounds like you want them to make an entirely different type of game? You want them to take out what made the first game great?
Vgas will go down as the longest fail train in 2009.
agreed this is terrible,now i'm going to be shock if a game that deserves an award over all else actually wins.and these trailers suck!
OMG! can't wait..
Wasn't expecting this. Seems a bit soon but the first was great and I expect more of the same!
Awesome. IT was gonna happen with the firsts great success.
but good news. I loved the first game and have no doubt that the studio would put out another solid title.
i wounder when the game will be raleased if is in 2010 then maybe nothing will change and it will be just like gta 4 dlc nothing new
