Nearly a year delay? Damn! This game must be nowhere close to ready to release. We might get GTA 6 before then.

I think we'll get a Playstation 6 before we get a GTA VI.

If anyone wants in on the closed ALPHA this weekend, here are some codes. Good for your choice of PS5, Xbox or Steam

The control setup in this is something else. Not good.

Edit: ok the main complaint is to do faster travel stuff you have to press a bumper + another button. I am getting more used to it now but I don't really like the set up so far.

Graphics are good on this though.

Hands-on previews tend to skew positive or at least cautiously optimistic, but…


Check out this UI. Yikes!

That makes me think of this quote from Ready Player One.

"Once we can roll back some of Halliday's ad restrictions, we estimate we can sell up to 80% of an individual's visual field before inducing seizures."

Ugh. I was hoping after these substantial delays it would be awesome, but now I am not optimistic, at all.

Yeah this is a really bad sign from a major studio for a AAA licensed game.

I mean, there is someone who is much meaner to Deb on here, so you would probably have been fine in comparison.

And what's funny is that I'm shifting to live service and sandbox games where there's no ending.

Rented this from GameFly - used GameLock, so should have it in a few days.

Well there is an ending (when the money train runs out) it just comes with little warning and then you have a gimped game, if you have a game left at all. But I digress.

I was curious about this. Too bad it sounds like a disaster. Maybe if it gets fixed Iíll play it eventually.

Due to that glitch, the ending has made its way to YouTube. For those of you still interested in the game, avoid YouTube.

I started watching IGN's 1st 20 minutes of this, and stopped after like 5-8 minutes as it was just boring, generic and repetitive.

I gave up on checking out the tedious gameplay as well. Now I'm just looking at the story scenes out of morbid curiosity. Thus far, the only thing I liked was seeing
Spoiler:
King Shark briefly becoming a Green Lantern,
even if it makes no damn sense.

Everything else just takes a flaming turd
Spoiler:
(or a stream of piss from Boomerang's massive dong, in the case of Flash's demise)
all over the Arkham-verse and Justice League.

I have a feeling Rocksteady wanted to make another single player game and Warner Brothers made them do a live service game.

Wasn't there gonna be a Superman Game?

What I don't get is why they set this in the Arkham universe. The vitriol this is getting for its narrative is understandable. And even if they
Spoiler:
bring in a new Justice League via the multiverse (which is a thing in this game) via DLC expansions, this still remains a huge middle finger to fans of that franchise. For all of Gotham Knights' faults, the makers of that game understood that if you plan to kill off a fan favorite character, you better make it epic. All the JL members in this game go out like chumps.



And, if you can get past that, the gameplay still looks really generic, no matter how much they clutter the HUD.

Apparently that was just an urban legend.

No wonder that this week following the previews, fans continued to repeat a rumor that wonít die ó that the developers at Rocksteady had originally pitched a game about Superman, which was rejected by Warner Bros. and the company was instead forced to make this one.

In reality, Rocksteady never pitched or worked on a Superman game, according to people familiar with the companyís strategy over the last decade. Following the release of Arkham Knight in 2015, the studio began working on a Batman VR game and then an unannounced multiplayer game set in an original franchise, which has not been previously reported.
