Warner Montreal is featured in a new Batman: Arkahm Origins video on Game Informer, where the team discusses Rocksteady’s previous entries in the series. In it, the team reflects on “how the release of Arkham Asylum changed the game industry and what lessons they hope to carry forward into the upcoming release.” Batman: Arkham Origins is out October 25 for PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360.

    @2: it did.

    Everyone expect Super Heroes games to be of the same quality.

    and you can see it’s gameplay copied on alot of games.

    @3: Considering most Super Hero games are still mostly useless movie-tie-in, you’d be a fool to expect the same quality.

    I can agree on the combat though, hard to deny that. But combat is not the game industry.

    It was certainly leaps and bounds ahead of most other licensed games, but to claim that it changed the industry you’d need to point to some kind of effect, and it’s just not there.

    Rocksteady must be in league with some kind of malignant force though. The shit they pull off in two years is just amazing. The fact that they won’t be doing this one fills me with dread for the same reason.

    A Montreal assembly line…. Meh.

    @5: still, it did what other didn’t want to do, there were super heroes video games not based on movies, there were tons of Spider Man titles, some were great, but non set the world on fire like Arkham did.

    And I also agree with you regarding ties-in, the only 2 good movie games were Spider Man 2 ((SM3 was awful)) and Batman begins, those I played them long ago, so can’t really remember.

    The Wolverine: Origins game was fun. It had almost nothing to do with the movie though (thankfully).

    @8: I think that’s how all licensed games should be. I mean do we really want to play those games just so we can replay what we’ve seen on the screen? No. Give me a new, good story, something that takes place before or after the movie and you should have all the freedom you need.

    Or do it like Rocksteady and create your own version of the licensed material.
