What's with the tank of propane in a GCPD office? I get why they'd have fire extinguishers in there, but's huge propane bottles?

Looks pretty much like Arkham City. Considering how great the CORE game was and this is a new studio, very impressive.

That guy speaks very poorly. Also, why bother with training rooms? 90% of the people who'll play this game already played and beat the other two. We don't need to be taught how the batarangs and counters work...

Batman is right when it comes to not trusting cops.

i want a batman game that's full of active citizens in gotham and your job is to sneak around being a detective. it was fun the first time but i'm tired of exploring empty cities.

It says 360 but the square to dive kick prompt make me think it's running on a PS3.

even if it was the same city with new story it will be awesome and it's enough to say that it is the best superhero game for now

Games for Windows Live just lost my save file for Arkham City after working my way through the game collecting all those boondoggle trifle-ass trophies and stuff.  Oh, and the same thing happened on ARkham Asylum.  At least with A Asylum it was because my hard drive died.  With A. City, there was no reason for it whatsoever.  Even my backup file on Dropbox is gone.

So, why does this matter when this is Arkham Origins and not the other two games, nor is it going to have GFWL attached to this game?  Because I'm just so fricking annoyed by GFWL that I am banning -- will not buy -- the next two Batman (Arkham) games to punish that d*uchey DRM.  Maybe they will realize that GFWL is NOT saving them money on piracy but LOSING them money on unhappy customers.

I honestly don't care what anyone else says. The Batman Arhkam series are by far THE BEST superhero games EVER made to date. Any other reasons to love Batman? Anyone???

I'm not loving the snowy/christmas theme, since we already saw a snowy Gotham in AC, but other than that I'm really excited for this. The Arkham games are so good, especially for a long time Batman fan

Batman Clone City :P. Looks good though.

Can we please do a character other then Batman?? It's not so much the character I'm sick of as it is the city. After three games Gotham is dark and soooooo boring!

Batman's hits look much more powerful.

Not to sound like a jerk, but I hope the developers knowledge of cinema goes beyond Joss Whedon and Michael Bay. :/

The costume is much better now and the game looks great pal but It would have been better having a batmobile or other vehicles to travel with.   They better do that for nextgen or I give up!

Finally, the most important change is made. HIS EARS ARE SHORTER! Always bothered me.

If it were any other game/character, I would say they are milking it. Many of the animations look the exact same. However The previous 2 Arkham games were very good so maybe it wont matter? It is cool that there are more tall buildings. I wonder if there will be any people walking around or traffic.

I bet 1% of it's power is enough to play the Watch Dogs on Ultra settings 60fps. I'm super jelly right now.

@metalblinga You won't be spending much time on the ground anyway and the citizens would just get in the way.

@kishona The Long Halloween, my favourite Batman story. The Knightfall Saga was pretty awesome as well (especially when the "new Batman" was created as a pisstake of the XTREME super heroes that were coming out in the 90's).

@fluffy_kins tbh I wasn't much of a Batman fan before Arkham Asylum. The Arkham games are the main reason I am one now

@ryancyc I'm a big fan of the smaller ears myself. Preferably The Dark Knight Returns.

@theteaface @vongroove Strange she actually stated that FINALLY Kevin Conroy is out! That's too far below the belt no matter how much lore they know!
