Love that the Riddler is looking a little worn and rattled now.  I know they are intentionally keeping Scarecrow under wraps for now, but I'm curious to see what they have done with him.  I always liked his portrayal in the first two games, so I almost hope they don't mess with it much.

Honestly, I dont even remember him in Arkham City.

Yeah, you're right...I think he was referenced and there were some easter eggs about him, but he didn't actually appear in AC.     :dunce: 

 

Things all start to blur together after a while I guess.

Haha I remember the references but I don't remember seeing him which was a bummer cause I was hoping to.

Personally, I hope Arkham Knight doesn't include Joker. I'm more than ready for a batman game where someone else steps up as the prime villain for a change.

Completely, 100% in agreement.  The Joker showing up almost feels cheap at this point.  One of the big (only) things that drew me to Origins was that the villain was advertised as Black Mask.  I thought that was an original and ballsy direction.  And look how all that turned out.

 

So, let's cross our fingers that Rocksteady can give us something new with this final installment.  Anyone up for a next-gen King Tut?

A few outlets have pointed out that, at least in that one picture that was just released, The Riddler looks a lot like Charlie Sheen...

More info came out, might have heard already, but to those that haven't..

No tacked on multiplayer
Kevin Conroy will be Batman
Set 1 year after Arkham City, will take place in part of Gotham City which is about 5x bigger than Arkham City.
You'll be able to drive the bat mobile around the city, some Riddler challenges will require it.
Arkham Knight is suppose to represent a militarized version of Batman who will be one of the villians. Other villians include Penguin, Two Face, and Harley Quinn


Kevin Conroy?! Awesome. I guess any reports of Mark Hamill will mean a cameo of the Joker.

His voice work is where he really shines.  I love Star Wars, but those characters are pretty thin on depth.

Please tell me you aren't referring to SW characters in that dumbass statement about depth.

Please tell me you don't think Star Wars characters had real depth.

 

I love Star Wars and all, but it isn't exactly deep.  Harrison Ford himself actually several years back said he wouldn't go back to Han Solo because he really felt the character was "thin" on depth.  I'm not sure how they managed to talk him back into part 7 - probably has something to do with the new guard.  Alec Guiness also is well known for not having high regard for his character, arguably the "deepest" in the series.

 

Please don't confuse "deep" and "enjoyable".  Dumb and Dumber and Ace Ventura are some of my guilty pleasures, as are many similar movies which I will almost always watch if they are on.  Well written or acted does not equal "good movie".  I still have my large collection of Star Wars figures from my childhood sitting in their Darth Vader head storage case in a place of honor in my man room and a giant framed poster from Episode 4 hanging on the wall.  It's not like I'm just some hater.

 

Mark Hamill captured the very soul of the Joker better than anyone else using just his voice (although Heath Ledger was very good).  It was way better done than his take on a whiny teenager on a desert planet who becomes a master of his art after a grueling three day training course taught by a Muppet.
