>>315304918 The actually good Batman TAS game I've always wanted but never got, even if the art style was more "realistic". Oh and making Barbara go off the Killing Joke canon is way better than her mary sue lesbian version from TAS.
>tfw I honestly prefer Origins over City Better story, better setup (a part of Gotham during winter instead of an incredibly stupid cordoned off part of the city where somehow Mayor got people to leave their homes and give them to criminals), way more focused and coherent in general, better combat (faster and enemies are more aggressive). City felt like it tried to cram EVERYTHING into the main story (instead of relegating some things to side quests) and as such it feels like a cluttered mess. I know I'm in the minority but for me it's Asylum > Origins > City Haven't played Knight yet, waiting until all the DLCs and shit are done so I can grab GOTY or w/e edition for cheap.
>>315304918 It has the best atmosphere in the series, but looking back now, the gameplay is really basic and easier compared to the later Arkham games. I'd say the best in the series overall is City. Origins could have been better but it was a glitchy mess and they forced Joker into the story when he should have just been a side mission. Arkham Knight had the chance to be the best Batman game of them all, but they really fucked that up. In the end I'd say it goes City>Asylum>Knight>Origins.
>>315307719 It's not just the Joker, it's the entire plot. City just lacks focus. OH SHIT STRANGE KNOWS YOUR IDENTITY, STOP HIM OH WAIT BUT NOW TWO FACE IS RAISING A RUCKUS SO BETTER IGNORE STRANGE AND JUST GO AFTER TWO FACE GREAT YOU STOPPED TWO FACE BUT NOW JOKER INFECTED ALL HOSPITALS BUT NOW PENGUIN IS SHIPPING GUNS OVER BUT NOW THIS BUT NOW THAT AND IT JUST KEEPS FORCING YOU TO IGNORE THE TWO ACTUALLY IMPORTANT PLOT POINTS THAT FEEL VERY THREATENING (Joker infecting hospitals, Strange knowing Bruce = Batman) to deal with fucking miniscule shit that should be relegated to Robin and Nightwing.
>>315308276 Also then Ras al Ghul shows up out of nowhere with literally no build up and dies 10 minutes later also with no buildup and Strange is made out to be just a bitch when actually confronted. The plot is a clusterfuck of bad ideas and irrational shit. Origins actually has direction even if it's just Joker & Bane: The Game
>>315308428 >Origins actually has direction even if it's just Joker & Bane: The Game
What I found strange was people bitching about Joker, when it was clearly Bane that was written shittily in Origins. One minute he and his whole gang is talking about killing the Joker next, then suddenly he's letting the joker set up some retarded system where one of them has to die.
>>315308997 >then suddenly he's letting the joker set up some retarded system where one of them has to die I don't think you remember the game. Joker is the one that sets up the riot in Blackgate before Bane even gets there. Bane wants first and foremost a duel to the death with Batman (and to kill him first), he said so himself that Joker comes after. Why would he kill Joker if he's still of some use when Batman is alive and is the prime target? Heck, if Bane won Joker would've died fried on that electric chair.
>>315309905 Well I haven't played Knight yet so I can't judge it. But really it wouldn't surprise me if it was better than City since from what I heard it's a great game with a bad PC port and too many Batmobile sections.
>>315309640 Batmobile was a shit addition, bro. It COULD have been nice to have a batmobile, but they made it into a tank taking out hundreds of other tanks in a way that was just fucking tedious.
>batmobile stuck underneath feargas-fog >Batman dives in to insert the new power source slow like molasses, risking his life because he needs the batmobile >then it turns out Lucian had an unpainted spare all along tucked away in some garage
>arkham knight worked on my machine >almost 100% it >still going to try and get a refund because of the shitty delay on the DLC stuff and because of the insult that was "you'll get all the other Arkham games you already own, and free TF2 items!"
I honestly didn't expect to get anything from the deal. I just feel insulted that they thought no-one would notice their little scheme of giving away games that 95% of the owners of Arkham Knight would already have and TF2 stuff they're making TF2 create for free.
You shit heads don't get it. City was supposed to be hectic like that. It was supposed to be a gauntlet of endurance for Batman. Often times not only was there a problem one after another, but several problems going off at once that he had to tackle. This wasn't an example of what happens when all of his villains team up to take him out, but instead an example of all his villains being set loose at once and they each have their own agenda. You notice it as the game goes on, just how this gauntlet was affecting him. This was supposed to be his worse night ever.
And all of that shit going on at once is why he wasn't able to pick up on the Joker twist. There were enough clues there that he could have figured it out, but because he was trying to take care of so many different things, he was sucker punched by it and didn't pick any of them up.
I liked it personally. It was a great Joker/Batman origin story, although it is disappointing we didn't get a game based on the original premise of Black Mask. But for what it was, it was a good version of their first encounter.
Also, I loved the addition of the Martial Artist. Especially on the higher difficulties when counter indicators were turned off, they made the fight dynamics really interesting.
Also, even though the lobby system was shit, and it was buggy as fuck, when you got a game of the multiplayer going, it was fucking fantastic. When it worked, it worked great. Being Batman or Robin felt perfect, and the close up locked camera view for the thugs made it you feel paranoid all the time. They could have made the thugs a little more interesting to play, but there were some neat gadgets here and there. It was great ground work that I'm disappointed didn't get expanded upon by Rocksteady.
