    Oh, could be, I only know about the first 600 they released, haven't paid attention after the first three got panned in reviews. Only played the Harley one myself.

    EDIT: "Most Wanted" looks like it got good user reviews, nice.

    Welp, I played through most of the DLC now, here are my impressions:

    Harley mission: boring challenge map
    Red Hood mission: boring challenge map
    Batgirl mission: boring mini sidequest with less gadgets
    Catwoman mission:boring chall...wtf this last fight is fucking insane. fuck this. /ragequit
    Robin mission: didn't even try

    Season of Infamy
    Mad Hatter: Fetch quests with an okayish final setup
    Killer Croc: Nice environments and atomsphere, meh story
    Mr. Freeze: Ok predator encounter, some filler crap, car fight, FANTASTIC story. Really really good, better than the OC
    Ra's Al Ghul: Retarded follow the tracks beginning, some mediocre fights, pretty decent story and and WHAT IS THIS? an option(with no consequence)

    Works well for me, stable 30 fps. Everything on high on a gtx 770. The game is tedious as hell though.

    Don't think so, they stopped patching after they released DLCs and gave all owners old AC games as a consolation prize. It was worthless for me as i owned them anyway so i just opted for refund. I think it still requires 12+ gb ram to run without stuttering.

    I enjoyed the first two but the idea of having to deal with all the Riddler shit to get the good ending on top of the performance issues makes me stay away from this game.

    I 100% the game on 970 with 8GB of ram, installed on SSD. Running at 1080 i had around 50 fps, I think.

    Well at least it tanked hard enough for the series to get a rest, hopefully next one won't be such a disaster.

    The first three work well as a trilogy, no need to bother with this shit.

    Well they just announced an Arkham VR game so I guess not.

    More than a vr game I think they are doing what we call as "stretching the bubblegum".
    Also, is that in any way related to the recent remastering of the first two games?

    I've been playing this after I got my 1080 GTX. I've been expecting it to be a mess, but it's been stable 60FPS at 4K with details maxed and I haven't really run into any issues. It's a lot better than I expected, certainly much better than Arkham Origins. I'm not sure how I should arrange the games, but I think it would be Arkham City > Arkham Knight > Arkham Asylum >>> Arkham Origins (although maybe Asylum gets Bonus points for being the first and getting the gameplay perfected in the sequels to work).

    Anyway I got a question, after 100%ing "City of Fear" and "ending" the game, does the Joker commentary disappear forever? Because that shit was the best part of the game and they should've put a big red sign before heading to the final encounter if it's the case.

    Multiple characters flat out telling you "there's no coming back from this" wasn't enough, huh?

    What do you expect? He prefers the open world games over Arkham Asylum.

    I appreciated Origins a lot more than most, to the point that if it wasn't marred by the technical issues I might even consider it my favorite. In terms of story and character design it was head and shoulders above the first two. The combat isn't well balanced, but it was at least considerably harder than the previous two games with less forgiving timings, something that as a series vet I was quite appreciative of.

    What was so great about the story in Origins? Wasn't it more or less the same "Joker plans to destroy something/everything and Batman tries to stop him" fare that we saw in the first two? Or am I remembering it wrong? I only played it once.

    The writing in Origins is indeed good as I recall. It has a simple, almost childish initial premise that makes it easy to get into, but the different perspectives and motivations of the large cast brings great complexity to the story. Best of all, though Batman is the main character and in some ways he's even the Macguffin, not everything is about him. You think it's just going to be about 8 big fights with 8 assassin bosses, but there's way more going on. And I don't remember any "this is completely stupid" moments, unlike Knight which has some real dogs.

    Almost makes me want to replay Origins again just talking about it to analyze the writing some more, but .. nah.

    Oh man. I played all the way through New Game +, 100%ing everything again, because I thought there was supposed to be some kind of special ending. Turns out you get the full ending on the normal story mode if you 100% it. Ripoff. Oh well, at least I got to play it as 70s Batman this time with 60s Catwoman and Robin sidekicking.

    To be fair, I don't even much remember the story of Arkham Origins anymore, just bits and pieces of it like that annoying Firefly fight sequence on the bridge, the shock gloves guy that dies from impact and that Joker appears near the end and it's all about him again. I also remember that most of the good world design and characters that they managed to do were copied from Asylum or City before and a lot of the ones they designed themselves were mostly shit and looked like they were made by modelling students:
    [​IMG]
    Here's my thoughts from 3 years back: http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/inde...man-arkham-origins.82064/page-10#post-3028901

    Not sure how people can even say that Arkham Asylum isn't "Open World", since it is, just a really limited "Open World" with a lot of corridors and a really retarded video-gamey story that makes Joker look like this and doesn't play to his strengths as a villain:
    [​IMG]

    But that's not even the main reason I would vote Asylum lower, the main reason I would is that after playing City/Origins/Knight and going back to it the fighting overall feels clunky in comparison, like they thought of something great but didn't perfect it yet, and the enemy variation that appeared in City and makes these fights tougher isn't available yet, also there's half a dozen mandatory boss fights that play similar: Muscle Henchmen, Bane, Killer Croc, and finally Titan Joker.

    Think my GTX 660 Ti can pull this at a reasonable level?

    As far as i know, it still requires 12+ gb ram for playing smoothly, but maybe they fixed it. Never played DLC, but i guess they arent worth the money
