Batman: Arkham City Gamescom 2011 Interview
Rocksteady's Dax Ginn talks up Challenge mode, Mr. Freeze, and more at Gamescom 2011.
Like any other Batman fanatic, i'm glad to see a gaming company devolpe a great game for this Hero who really deserves it!
So many games this season look to be must buys, it's hard to narrow down which ones make my budget. Arkham City is a guarantee purchase for me though, considering the first one was so good, and I like anything 'Batman', even the old campy Adam West series. Pre-ordered since April, 2010.
London-based developer Rocksteady Studios has stated that the PC build of Arkham City will have "a life of its own." This statement is exemplified by the fact that the PC version will support DirectX 11, Tessellation, and NVIDIA PhysX, essentially making it the definitive copy to own.
I have to agree with Coop36. With every villian reveal and bit of new game info, this game really looks like it's just building up on the previous game in a perfect way. More of what we love but much bigger, much more and even more tuned. I don't know who else they could reveal at this point after everyone that has been brought to light thus far. Mad Hatter? Another, bigger, crazier, and more insane Scarecrow experience?
Arkham Asylum was an amazing game. Arkham City looks better.. how is this possible In the age of yearly cookie cutter game releases?
Sounds like they might actually be making the challenge maps a more involved part of the game. Cool.
I still wish they hadn't made Batman so bulky. Doesn't look like someone who could move around very quickly or with much agility. But whatever, it's a minor gripe.
I was well hyped for this game, proper loved the first one.. but I can't help feel that the inclusion of Catwoman is still a bad thing :( It's annoying because I know it's going to be solid gameplay, but with Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, and Skyrim all coming out.. I may have to just buy this next year. Why couldn't the developers spread the games out a bit?!
I agree with @hughjahead way too many AAA titles in Q4 this year But this is right up there with my must have titles...
Too many games coming out 4th quarter but im definitely going to buy this game because based on what i see, I know its going to be a great game.
wow... all i can say is tat i am drowling up a flood with all this flipping cool stuff. when you showed, Mr. Cold Hearted (Mr. Freeze) making him was wonderfully incredible art but guess what??? i am going to get this game and when it comes time for him, he will be a melted pop a sicle..... Batman can kick his butt.. and.... catwoman, i would let her kick my butt anytime especially at 1:10
I agree that Robin is a terrible character, but at least they made him badass for this game. Or at least, so it seems.
if only WB and rocksteady were in charge of spider man games..... I can almost imagine how sweet spidey would be! activision is doing s***t
COME to me kitty kitty, i have a bone for you lol. This game is going to kick @ss! cant wait to play it
This thing is going to be crazy man. catwoman is awesome to plus the bad guys but i dont like robin at all its a good thing his not in the storymode.
Yo man this is gonna be sick! I'm bout to play Arkham Asylum again. They said 40 hours of gameplay with missions and side missions and then challenge maps. I cant wait to get this
My God... this game is going to be amazing. Mr. Freeze, Two Face, Penguin... I'm so excited for this.
Oh man it looks great but are they gonna add that plant lady villain ( poison ivy maybe ) And some other super heros
[car on a cliff with 4 females screaming inside] Robin: Hey, don't worry. I'm here. Passenger #1: Robin? They sent you?! Robin: Yeah. Everyone else was busy, so they sent me. Passenger # 2: What the hell are you gonna do? You don't have any superpowers. Robin: Uh, I got a cellphone. [looks at his phone] Oh! No bars. This pretty much defines Robin.
this game will be perfect as long as robin isn't in the story mode, just the challenges. Robin is the worst thing ever to happen to batman!
no Dax Ginn DIDN'T! "Intellectual villains" - haha! Isn't that a PR-nono for vg's? (winning ONE gamer, by confusing 100s? :)
They even said in the interview if you listen..Dont want to reveal to much in the game..So fear not, you shall be surprised..Im stoked..The orginal batman was great fun..Being open ended in the city means more to do..Also seams like they have more bad guys this time around..Robin will be around some what..Im also hearing you can unlock Robin as a special character for later on..Man cant wait to try catwoman she seams hot..Sounding like the ridler..So many games this year so many games..Question is where to start rofl..
