Yeah, not sure I buy this. Also, another prequel? I'd rather have another game with an M rating that takes place after AK. With you playing as Azrael.

After what happened with the last Batman game on PC, nah, I'm good. Besides, WB is greedy enough that they will definitely consider making it exclusive to Epic's store, so sod that entirely.

Have fun missing out on amazing games because of platform bias. Also, its not like you pay any more for games on the Epic Store.

I will actually, I'll have fun supporting devs that don't give into greed, and don't screw PC gamers over with shitty port jobs  

Also "amazing" is subjective in it's entirety btw.

Oh and as for "platform bias", nah mate, I play my games over on Steam, GoG, Battle.net and origin, but by far, Steam has the most useful features to date, that no other client has, and that is important to me like it or not. (Also GoG Galaxy has a much cleaner client than Origin itself, which is a plus).

I'd be down for a new Batman Arkham game.

Supporting devs for their business practices isn't really fun.

Amazing is subjective but a game with a more positive consensus is more likely to be it.

If you already have various clients, why not another one. Metro looks like a once in a gen game, probably the first game of this style since Metro Last Light but with some cool new features. It looks like the Arkham City, pun intended to its predecessor.

Supporting devs that actually make good games I enjoy, games that aren't riddled with MT's and locked to a storefront that is utter garbage for the user is more fun.

And yet there are 7+ billion people on this planet, with not everyone thinking what you think in terms of "greatness". See, just because a percentage of one populous thinking one thing is great, does not make it a "fact", or "objective" greatness, no, because then you have to ask and account for everyone else, and who on earth is going to waste their entire lives to ask all 7+ billion people?. Would you just easily assume everyone likes what you like, in order to make appear as if it were objective?. 

Because I don't want to use more clients than the ones I already use?. Why can't THQ just sell the game on the storefronts I already use?. Why can't they sell their game on GoG?, oh that's right, because it uses DRM, I almost forgot about that anti-consumer part...

It looks "once in a gen" to you, but not to me, which in turn doesn't make it objectively a "once in a gen game", it's your opinion and I'll keep pointing this out, until you lot say "imo", because that's what it is.

Sounds like they might be making it similar to God of War reboot where the side quests aren't copy and paste jobs and are more meaningful to flesh out the core story. This would be a good thing especially if they can tie in side quest specific loot.

In interested to see how the batwing will fair composted to the batmobile and how much it will impact gameplay.



Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

Yeah, this seems fake to me. A map that size would be stupidly big for a game with a 12 hour main story, unless they fill it with loads of repetitive side content. They think they can win GOTY 2019 with a game like that? 

Batman Arkham games don't have repetitive side content, so why would they do it with this game in particular? Curiously have you not played them?

I just said why, they will only have 3 years to fill a map that is 1.7x bigger than GTA V's with enough content for it not to feel like a barren wasteland according to this leak. WB Montreal has 500 developers and are currently making 2 different DC games (the other is believed to be the Super Man game that leaked), so assuming an even split down the middle, that is 250 devs with 3 years of development time. That is just not enough developers or development time to make enough hand crafted side content to fill a map 1.7x bigger than GTA V's. It took Rockstar 5 years and 4x that many developers to make GTA V. You just aren't going to fill a map 1.7x bigger than GTA V's with enough content unless you rely on radiant, repeatable quests, which will feel repetitive.
