Dammit, another game Ill need to buy this year.
Pretty much EVERY batman villain made before the 90's started out as really goofy and stupid. Two Face for example just really digged robbing TWO banks or gothams '2nd national bank' ect.LobsterFeng said:
Yeah I understand that The Joker started out as a playful trickster type of villain. Either way I'm excited to see how it turns out because I really liked his portrayal of Scarecrow (even though he didn't do much.)ace_of_something said:Pretty much EVERY batman villain made before the 90's started out as really goofy and stupid.

Calander Man is now typically portrayed as a Hannibal Lecter type serial killer obsessed with dates and patterns of.
That being said I think I'd rather they take one of the botarded characters that hasn't been touched in a few decades and update them.
Oh, I thought they were the same guy.Avatar Roku said:Point taken, Woodsey.Woodsey said:I think that's The Holiday Killer.LobsterFeng said:
I don't know enough to say either way, honestly.LobsterFeng said:Oh, I thought they were the same guy.Avatar Roku said:Point taken, Woodsey.Woodsey said:I think that's The Holiday Killer.LobsterFeng said:
That sums up the general view really. I think if they had wanted to do that they would have probably needed to have a set-up for a villain to emerge from a character in the first one, otherwise he/she would just come out of nowhere and might feel out of place in a sequel...LightspeedJack said:I think the games have reached enough fan popularity to introduce a new character to the Batman canon.

Weird thing is Batman fans are the one group that they could probably get away with doing this. While most comics fans are rabid in their pickiness over the addition of new characters from "non canon" sources, Batman is the one franchise that has had great success in this. The Barbara Gordon Batgirl and Mr. Freeze both originated in the campy 60's tv series and were later ported over to the comic. Harley Quinn was created for the WB animated series and quickly became a fan favorite as well. These types of successes means that the fans are probably more likely to give a new character created for a very well made game a chance before going [email protected] insane.Zhukov said:... but then they realised that such a thing would result in comic fans queuing up to take a shit in their letter box.
I think you might be missing the point of the article. Even though they didn't, at least one mind on their team was for it. It could happen down the line. And besides, if someone as accomplished as Scorsese was contemplating having a sex change, people would read that article.teknoarcanist said:Am I the only one who saw this headline and started laughing?
"George RR Martin thought about writing different book; went 'eh, nvm'."
"Martin Scorsese contemplated a sex change, thought better of it."
"Christopher Nolan considered eating sandwich before heading out; figured w/e, they would have food there."
on a completley unrelated note I kind of want that to happen to comander shepard in Mass effect 3, as much as I like him/her (her) shepard jsut seems a little too ok with the whole "entire universe on your shoulders" thingWoodsey said:Hopefully this won't comes with fucking GfWL - I'd rather play it on the PC.
As for the game, really looking forward to it. They've said its a lot darker than the last, but I really hope it honestly is - my biggest problem with the last is that Batman, as is often the case (with the exception of Nolan's films), really is the least interesting person around. I want him to be broken and crying like a little girl saying he can't go on. Make it so!
Well...none of the series is Batman canon, so if they put a new character in, it doesnt mean they will become a mainstay in the comics. What happens in the Arkham series, stays in the Arkham series...unless the comic writers say otherwise.LightspeedJack said:I think the games have reached enough fan popularity to introduce a new character to the Batman canon.

Good for us consumers when designers create a too vivid world that the engine can't handle and the whole thing get postponed for a few months while they cut content and try to fix all the problems the tech-team warned them about half a year ago?Good for us that the designers ignored the naysaying of their tech team
