I am tearin' this game up. I can't seem to do as well as I need to in the combat challenges though. But, I did have a 42 hit free flow combo last night. That was pretty awesome.

Finally got all the Riddler stuff! Now to do the Challenge mode! :D

And then beat the game on hard mode. :|

I just started playing through on hard, and it's definitely a little more tough just cause the baddies don't get the little "I'm going to attack you now" squigglies over their heads any more. I'm just trying to run through it as fast as I can on hard. I think the hardest part is going to be

the part when you have to get away from Croc.

So I beat it on hard last night.

Turns out, the part in Croc's Lair wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I guess it was because I was really cautious and walked the whole damn way with my batarang out. Took forever though. The toughest fight on hard was Ivy. Damn those plants of hers! Even the final boss fight wasn't too tough. So, another 50 gamerpoints for me.

;)

Also, I was having trouble with the free flow combo's until I realized this: when you're in combat with a lot of guys, a really good way to keep your combo going (and not get hit), is to liberally use the dodge move. I've found that if you hit someone twice then dodge away, you'll almost never get hit. Occasionally, a stray fist or pipe will get through, but not very often, if you're smart with the way you dodge. It really comes down choosing your targets smartly as you fight. Henchmen with knives and stun batons are the ones to really look out for, especially in challenges when you want to get through all four rounds with out taking damage. That extra 5000 points for the Perfect Knight Bonus goes a long way in getting three medals in all the combat challenges.

So there's a few more of cents worth, not that anyone asked for it. ;)

Played a bit of the demo. I'm impressed.

I played the demo on the PS3 today, and from what I could see, the graphics were a little better. There also seemed to be a little difference in the dialogue (at least in the challenges). It was weird handling a PlayStation controller again.

Steve Blum. He does tonnes of voice acting gigs. He's also Grunt from ME2 & 3. He does a lot of Wolverine for games and cartoons too.

Ok, I'm slow. Just got AA today along with my pretty new PS3. I'm already loving it. It was between AA and DC Universe Online. But I decided playing as Batman's student paled in comparison with playing as Batman. I was right, lol.

Joker's laugh as the game is downloading is a wee bit unsettling, though.

In case you missed it, the new Arkham game will be a prequel called Arkham Origins. It will be released in October.

Playing Arkham Knight now.  Wondering who he is.  Seems to be someone with a past with Batman.  I'm thinking it's Jason Todd.

You need to hurry the hell up.  Arkham City is really good.  Arkham Orgins probably has the best story.

      Anyone else super excited for this game?  It's the game being created by Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear Solid series.  Everything I've seen is so bizarre but so cool.  It stars Norman Reedus (Daryl from The Walking Dead) and Mads Mikkelsen.  Director Guillermo del Toro looks to be involved as well.  It makes me want to buy a Playstation 4 just to play it.

      Been playing for about a week, and I gotta say, I'm floored.

      Well, we finally have our first look at the DC superheroes all together!
       
      Batman! Wonder Woman! Aquaman! The Flash! Cyborg!
      But no Superman... not yet. (I'll stop there in case some of y'all haven't seen  Batman vs. Superman yet).
       
      Not a huge look... but it seems to have loads of potential to be a great time. I was excited before seeing this video, so yeah. Now just extra amped.
    • DC Universe Online: The Next Superhero is You!

      DC Universe Online is an MMORPG that puts you right in the middle of the action. Brainiac has his sights on Earth yet again. You have been granted powers thanks to exobytes stolen from Brainiac by Lex Luthor and released into Earth's atmosphere. Choose your powerset, your weapons, and your mentor. Work alongside your favorite DC characters in missions spread between Gotham, Metropolis, and the Watchtower/Hall of Doom. Will you be a hero and save the world, or a villain to rule it?
       
      Anyone else playing? It went free to play in November 2011 for PS3 and PC. Word is it will be on PS4 as well. Of course all the expansion packs and cool gear you have to pay for, lol. I started a file back when it first came out then got lost on the Watchtower and gave up. I recently started playing it again and I'm having a blast as a Tech Hero. The sound is glitchy as all get out, though. Sometimes battle noises and chatter will drop out completely and you just have the ambient noises. Sometimes its the other way around. Normally it doesn't bother me when that happens, but there are a few quests I need to have audio.
