This game is overwhelmingly good.

The Abromavaci Twins were great original characters and I wasn't Expecting Vicki Vale to be in here too.

Raise your hand if you do or did this while playing...

*Random Thug threatens that even your mom won't recognize you*

Yell out MY PARENTS ARE DEEEEEAAD! And proceed to go batshit crazy on him and everyone else in the area.

Catwoman bits were fine just wish there was some more and I hate her costume. Its just why is her face uncovered? Shouldn't she keep her identity hidden like batman? Happy to use the animated series skin and long halloween skin though. I was hoping for a Batman Returns Skin but oh well.

I miss Arleen Sorkins voice but the new voice was ok if a tad annoying sometimes.

Now to wait for the Nightwing DLC and The Skins Pack so I can acquire that batman beyond skin and play that in new game +.

I am looking forward to a sequel involving Hush and I would love to see a ManBat vs Batman aerial fight too.

Wait...you hate the costume? o_O

I don't know man I thought her costume was really good and pretty spot on to recent visual portralys of the character. As to why she doesn't have her goggles on all the time I couldn't say but when you put her into her little "thief vision" or whatever she wears them. Selina doesn't seem so concerned with protecting her identity since most people of any consequence pretty much already knows who she is, and the peons aren't worth sweating. If you don't know her name then the face doesn't really mean much.

Kinda like this clip I guess.

You can get the Batman beyond skin free when you buy a can/bottle of NOS energy drink. The ones marked with a yellow reward strip on them.

On the cans it's on the back side of the top tab itself.

I dunno man as much as I love the combat in Arkham City, Nightwing (or the later Robin) DLC just doesn't seem to keep my interest. I think a large part of that is the focus on all the Campaign/Challenge stuff with these additional characters rather than incorporating them into a Story Mode playthrough.

Amazing game.

Only issue... Mad Hatter stuff was gaiden and WAAAY too short. The one Mad Hatter cut scene and level was AMAZING, they should have made him part of the main story (just like the patient interview tapes) and had way more levels, like the Scarecrow basically.

Such a glorious looking game, but no money to get it, I've been progressivley watching the playthroughs on Youtube, it's the next best thing.

I really like Dick Grayson, epic reveal is epic and he seems to be the most entertaining to use out of Batman, Catwoman and Nightwing.

That's why I actually didn't like the Mad Hatter bit. It felt copy/pasted from Scarecrow. The "twisted bunny" Batman was pretty cool though.

Indeed, that chap wrote a very nice review. I suggest that everyone read the review and hit the recommend button found at the bottom of the page. I'm seriously, go do it

Got the collectors edition of this game the other day and loving it so far.

Got the soundtrack DLC for Xbox 360 with it if ya'll want to nab it. First come first serve for those who want it, you go to dropcards.com/arkhamcity and enter in the code, which is SDCNW5CDZT.

Loving the game, just wish Catwoman's chapters were longer lol

Just a reminder on Halloween make sure you guys pay attention to what Calender Man is doing. He's in the holding cell in the basement of the courthouse. wink

You know the part where batman is captured by the joker and the joker tells him that some of his blood was inside him?

Did anyone else think to themselves, "Oh great, now batman has AIDS or some other sexual disease. Nice job Joker."? Lol just thought it was funny.

If anyone can help I have two riddler challenges left to do which are the physical challenges.

"Perform a vertical dive for over 50 meters"

And "Glide for 30 meters while maintaining a height of less than 5 meters above the water"

Also did I miss something? Did the Insane inmates from Arkham Asylum make a return for this game? If not why are their character trophies in here?

The outfits are new too..a hint of that episodic dlc they were talking about or is it part of a challenge map?

I did a vertical dive off of the ACE chemical building and just held down the dive button until I hit the ground.

For the "glide 30 meters over water", just get near an open stream of water, dive, and then level out before you splash down and you should have enough lift to glide the 30 meters.

Some people have cheated the Calender Man conversations by altering their system's internal clocks. Every holiday he talks about something related to that holiday... but there is a punch-line at the end after all the monthly holidays are complete... THAT'S the interesting thing.

Nightwing DLC is coming out today. Not sure if I'll get it tho, seven bucks for two challenge maps and a character with no dialogue is pretty weak

Also, platinum'd =D

Actually my "Oh no he didn't!" moment went a little more like:

Random Thug: "I heard Bruce Wayne was here in Arkham City. Man I'd like a chance to teach his rich ass a lesson!"

*Immediately alter my gliding route to dive bomb the trash talking NPC, then subsequently beatdown each and every thug in the vicinity.*

Me: ...You were saying?

Seriously, the NPC chatter is great.
