Well guys, it's already late, and I've got some stuff to do tomorrow. Thanks again, and sorry for the whole "cosplayer hate" stuff I said on the other thread.

But I've been too harsh on the game. I stopped playing it when the Songbird destroys the tower and you're in the beach with Elizabeth. I really hope my impression towards the story changes when I play it again on June.
Oh, yeah. The game really picks up from there. A LOT more combat.

In the end, B:I is imo GOTY for me. Huge success. Loved it. Even got it the day it came out. Wish I went to the Midnight Release of it though...
As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

I think Infinite oversimplified the gameplay a little too much. It does have better than average writing but that's about it. Otherwise the gameplay is bare and there's no value in playing it repeatedly (besides soaking in the story and getting the achievements, which means like 1 or 2 extra playthroughs).

and now i've read and said the word complaining so much that it has lost it's meaning and now complaining sounds like cooperating for planning or something like that

Thank you for the kind words guys. Feel a lil' better, but the family's still grieving... and he was so damn young... God works in mysterious ways...

He's acting more of a douche with those sunglasses he's wearing. It's dark inside, the hell's do you need those for?!
Also, I'm curious as to what radio show you listen to.

Arkham Origins, right? I heard they're gonna have Deathstroke in there, and someone called "The Black Skull". Looks interesting.

I had a magazine with a ton of stuff about the new game in there, let me see if I can find it...

So yeah, it's got Deathstroke, Black Mask, The Penguin, and Branden (I guess he's a cop that's trying to stop Batman or something?). That's what I've gathered from not even reading the article.

I did also see there's going to be a handheld game called Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate as well. Doesn't look too bad.

Batman is being hunted by 8 hitmen on christmas eve, Deathstroke is confirmed. I'm guessing Deadshot and one of the Cain's will be two others.

I'm still a little disappointed that we're getting a prequel instead of a sequel, but still, that trailer hyped me. Can't wait for October.
