Matty keep us updated, I am still on the fence about the game, pretty hyped thu, so your word will determine whether I get this, or Dishonored GOTY.

Alright, so far I'm loving it. I'm about an hour or an hour and a half in. 


-The intro sequence is great.
-Graphics are better than in City, but it's not a huge leap.  
-Fighting system is as smooth as ever. 
-The world is quite large, although I can't tell how big it is compared to Arkham City. 
-The story is just picking up, so I can't really comment on it yet, but so far it seems quite good. -Cutscenes look really impressive and some of the cinematography in here is top notch.

Overall, it feels very similar to City, although it's a little darker (tonally).


I'll keep you updated as I get further into it.

I really wanted to get the collectors edition but by the time I got the money, the pre orders everywhere online were gone. I tried going into all the shops to see if they had extra but they didn't. Hopefully someone doesn't pick up theirs at gamestop and I can roll in Sunday morning and pick it up.

They had ONE 360 version at my local Gamestop. Didn't ask if it was already reserved or not. The box was massive, I'm kinda curious how big the statue is.

I'm really hoping to find the PS3 version but I'd probably buy a 360 version just so I can get my hands on that Joker statue. Then either sell the game to someone or buy the ps3 version when the price drops down the road. I'd say you should go back and get that collectors edition if you can, but I'm a huge batman fan.

Roger Craig Smith sounds A LOT like Kevin Conroy. Maybe a bit less inflection, but VERY close.

I have decided Matty, go buy me that collectors edition and ship it to me, I'll paypal whatever that cost entails. It would be better than trying online, those price gouging vultures. 

I'm only kind of sort of joking.

Batman: Arkham Origins on a Triple-Monitor Setup! - Saturday, October 26, 2013 5:16 AM ( #93 )

Batman: Arkham Origins - Nvidia Surround - GTX 670 3-Way SLI:

(Click for media)


Here's Batman: Arkham Origins, which runs very well on a triple-monitor setup!  No extra work required such as config edits or software hacks.  The game is fun and worth checking out, and, of course, the storyline is solid and very intriguing.  You haven't bought it yet?

I'm about 50% 90% (apparently) through the story, and I think it's settled; IT'S SO GOOD. Anyone who likes Batman or the Batman lore NEEDS to play this game. It sets up so much for the other two games, and the writing is spectacular. If I am really 90% through, it feels kind of short. There's a ton of side stuff though.

Didn't you get this game yesterday? How are you 90% through?

Don't be an attention whore, Surround, we have official threads, you don't need to make new ones...

I have no idea. I have 6 hours played and it says that I'm 90% through the story, 20% through everything. I looked at a list of the missions and I have about 5 or 6 left. This last 10% could be really long or really short (hopefully the former).\

Just ran into a weird bug where a whole building won't load in. It's one big muddy texture and when I land on it I go right through it. Tried restarting and no dice.

Why would you want to have to turn your whole head just to see stuff that's off to the side? Seems pretty inconvenient.

It should be around 12 hrs Matty, how long did Arkham City take you, it took me 10 hrs for both side, and story missions, which I thought was outrageous, given how lame the side missions were, I am gonna wait for your final verdict, but so far, unless the ending screws everything up, it seems you enjoyed it.

AC took me about 9 or 10 for the story, don't remember how long for everything else.
