Any news on PC port?
[QUOTE=General;48011277]Any news on PC port?[/QUOTE] It's Unreal 3 dude...
That good or bad?
The previous games have been great PC ports. I expect this to be too
arkham origins started out pretty unoptimized, but that was wb's in-house development company. this is rocksteady, so expect it to be good from the get-go.
So far I know almost nothing from story but I won't be able to play it, so I'll either watch a playthrough on YouTube made by someone random from my subscriptions list, or just wait and hope for the best.
Oh man, BIG AK SPOILER [sp]I'm so glad I was right about Jason Todd being the AK. Just last week I got into multiple arguments and was called some mean things and treated like an idiot. The signs were there since the start. The funniest thing about this? I don't really care about the identity. I don't care Rocksteady tried to tells again and again it's a new character. It all comes down how they use him in the game.[/sp]
Must. Resist. Clicking. On. Spoilers.
IMO it's a shitty story if it gets ruined by a spoiler. The joy about the movie Fight Club is even if you know the twist, it makes the second watch through just as good as the first because now you're looking out for all the cues.

If you're wondering what the spoiler is, it's the identity of the Arkham Knight. Hopefully the game doesn't rely on that being a big shocker because they probably won't do it as well as Bioshock did, and I don't think the plot of the game revolves around trying to figure out his identity, but trying to stop him

A lot of people guessed it was Jason when it was first announced since it was pretty obvious if you read comics but then they came out and said it was an Original Character created by Johns and the games writer so I don't feel to good about them lying about that, especially when they had done interesting original stuff like the ghost/reincarnation of Arkham in the first game. You're right that it does depend on how they use him but if Jasons part of the story does just end up being a retread of Under the Red Hood except replaced with the Arkham Knight identity I'll be pretty disappointed since I think it would of been interesting for RS to have their own Harley Quinn, a character created for non-comic media that was done so well that they stuck around. Aside from that there's still the whole Scarecrow side of things and other stuff so yeah, I'm still hype.[/sp] [QUOTE=Dr.C;48011602] There have been people spamming "the arkham knight is bruce wayne and he gets locked up in arkham at the end" constantly on the facebook page but it was so obviously a load of shit.

[sp]And again, yeah, it all depends on how they use him[/sp]
I'll say this once more: for me the Arkham Knight is obviously going to be [sp]Thomas Elliot after altering his appearence to resemble Bruce Wayne[/sp], due to the massive sequel hook revolving around him in Arkham City and the incredibly interesting theme of [sp]Batman basically facing himself minus his moral restrains[/sp] Usually I always dig into spoilers because my thirst for knowledge overshadows my wish to be surprised, but this is my big gaming event of the year, so I won't be spoiled period
[sp]Riddler's the Arkham Knight[/sp] That'd be pretty odd
I am the Arkham Knight.
[QUOTE=Joey1;48011302]It's Unreal 3 dude...[/QUOTE] I'm sure it's the Unreal 4 engine. Probably the first major game to use it, too.

My friend preordered the statue version of the game from Amazon. Just received an email saying it'll be delayed because the packaging quality was poor. But they're giving him a free digital code to download the game on release, then shipping his physical copy as soon as they get it. [t]http://i.imgur.com/ptd5Ot4.png[/t]
Sweet my Gamestop is doing a 9:00 release on Monday. Can't wait for it to finally be released
Did anyone buy this through GMG? I've not bought a release title off them yet so how's it likely. To work?
[QUOTE=HumanAbyss;48015049]Did anyone buy this through GMG? I've not bought a release title off them yet so how's it likely. To work?[/QUOTE] You'll get a steam key emailed to you on release day from what i've read.
Tuesday needs to get here faster! Loved Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, so this is gonna be great!
[QUOTE=HumanAbyss;48015049]Did anyone buy this through GMG? I've not bought a release title off them yet so how's it likely. To work?[/QUOTE] Could get the keys tomorrow, could be release day. Who knows.
I'm wondering when pre-load is gonna be. Some people are saying tomorrow yet some are saying monday.
[QUOTE=thrawn2787;48015216]Could get the keys tomorrow, could be release day. Who knows.[/QUOTE] I ordered from cdkeys.com and I just got my key for the premium edition and activated it on steam so it might be soon for you guys
On GMG's site it says (for me atleast) that keys will be available when the game is released.
I'm already planning for the release on Monday. I've been looking forward to this for a while now.
[QUOTE=Lik;48015604]On GMG's site it says (for me atleast) that keys will be available when the game is released.[/QUOTE] That is generally the latest they get it. Sometimes it is a few days before.
Only key I'm waiting for from GMG is Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. Anyways.. A bunch of pictures and other stuff [url]https://imgur.com/a/PdB9d?gallery#0[/url] [t]https://i.imgur.com/oftyUc5.jpg[/t]
[QUOTE=Dr.C;48015476]I ordered from cdkeys.com and I just got my key for the premium edition and activated it on steam so it might be soon for you guys[/QUOTE] I just got my keys for the game and season pass from them...and kinda ran into something strange. The game activated fine, but when I put in the season pass it showed up as Beaver?? Like wtf is that a placeholder name until the game releases and itll show up as the season pass? I went on the steam store and on the season pass product page nothing shows up saying "This is already in your library." There isn't any game or software on steam that's just called Beaver, i'm pretty confused. [editline]edit[/editline] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/x071DUP.png[/IMG]
Mine just says "Batman: Arkham Knight Premium Edition"
Is this some elaborate scheme by Rocksteady to say "Hey you didn't buy on steam or the premium edition so you get a beaver"
