    So...you know one thing about the endgame really made me lol...
    The part when Batman carries Joker corpse out of the theater. I mean it wasn't the scene that made me laugh so much as I was thinking "But Batman, what about your girly friend whose in there lying in a pool of her own blood?

    Ha End game spoiler naturally.

    I loved Jokers too soon joke in the theater, that was just overly cruel and hilarious. And I'm figuring that Talia went into the lazarus pit with her dad. Creepy by the way hella creepy.

    Also side character spoiler.

    Batmans also kind of a douche to Robin when he shows up, way to be an ass to someone backing you up bman.

    The only nonlethal takedown in the game I don't care for is the over-the-railing ledge takedown, because it never seems like he'd have enough time to actually attach a wire to the guy and then secure it to the ledge. The whole move just seems too unrealistic. Plus, if it's something survivable like a 12 foot drop, I want Batman to actually throw that guy off and have him land on the hard pavement, not just dangle in the air.

    My favorite interrogation:
    I was on one of those walkways by the subway or something. Batman grabs the informant, holds him by one foot over the edge, and gives his threatening line. Informant says "OK, I'll tell you! Don't hurt me!"

    Batman: "Of course not." Fucking drops him.

    ...what were you going to do if he didn't tell you?!

    Make him wish Batman dropped him.

    Batman being a douche to Robin is a longstanding tradition that I'm happy to see upheld.

    Even Nightwing.

    In fact, I think the reason this Robin has the buzzcut is because he was sick of hearing "And get a haircut, Tim."

    Yeah the interrogations were hilarious for that exact thing also it seemed like. Interrogation spoiler.

    For guys over railings that the rope would basically hit the ground anyway, batman would flat out drop them on their damn head.

    Catwoman character spoiler.

    Why is catwoman all no kill? Why would she give two shits about not hurting people? I mean she should be dropping dudes off ledges like no ones business.

    I had zero problems with the remote batarang parts. The LT really slows it down to a crawl.

    Poor robin, he looks so bad ass. Though least he could have done was bring me a change of clothes. I mean it helps catwoman, but batman ends up looking like a bachelorette stripper towards the end!

    And that was hilarious, though she did have some plausible deniability.

    I mean you are immediately attacked afterward so she could claim they destroyed the plant. I did like how they set it up like catwoman intentionally hurt Ivy's plants when Ivy attacked her, but the conversation seemed more like catwoman was supposed to water them while Ivy was in arkham asylum or something.

    Catwomans dialogue with everyone else was definately the comic relief of the game.

    So wait...I've been hearing something about a Nightwing DLC.

    It says its only $5 bucks so I'm guessing challenge room only?

    Yeah that's probably it. Kind of like how catwoman takes on a similar amount of dickbags with half the toys armor/clothing. Also and I haven't read the stories I unlocked but spoilers about Catwoman and Twoface.

    In the Arkham universe were Harvey and Selina dating or something? He seems overly concerned with her specifically.

    Also side villain interaction with catwoman.

    If you haven't talk to penguin as catwoman, its a treat.

    Wanted was alright. It just had the misfortune of coming out in the same summer as Iron Man and The Dark Knight, so it looked somewhat bad by comparison.

    Just finished listening to Freeze's interview tapes. I really do love his character. He's the one villian I wish could get his shit fixed. I think he'd go to jail for life happy as a clam so long as Nora was cured first.

    Favorite Riddler informant: "Legs or face, which do I break first?" That one in particular is said so deadpan and uncaring, like Batman is just bored with you.

    Well it was also tied to Mark "I love rape" Millar. Though it shared almost zero with its source material (a benefit since Wanted as a comic to me is pretty much awful in every way possible). Still Angelina Jolie was hot, and the way she slid forward was pretty sweet, obviously rocksteady agreed.

    Also they apparently really didnt like the way Lost ended, or so it seemed from some of the dialogue in the game.

    Like I said I think the batcomputer is lying to him. "Unconcious" right right sure, and the fact that no one else can wake them up? Yeah nothing to worry about or anything...

    She also has a pretty distinct voice/speaking manner, at least in Mad Men and parts of her Firefly appearances.

    I always like to think of the criminals in the batman games as that one ewok from ROTJ "Come on buddy wake up... oh no... oh god no." And then they get strong up by their boots and dropped on their head from a batarang.

    There's one beatdown takedown that occurs when their back is to the wall. He grabs their face and smashes the back of their skull into it.
    You don't get up from those.

    Anytime he does a temple strike...they're also probably dead. Throat smash? That guy can't breathe anymore.

    I saw the most awesome counter though. I was groundpounding the second last guy in a round then countered the last guy who was punching from behind me. He did a forearm bar (clothesline I think it's called in wrestling?) from a kneeling position. It was like, a samurai style move, he twisted out of his kneeling position straight into it, followed through, the punk was on the ground and he was standing. It was beautiful.

    More points in favor of the catwoman vagina rub take down. I do like the one where she locks her legs and looks at her nails.

    Was it my imagination or does she have a "on the ground" takedown where she kisses the guy?

    She has an awesome double counter where she flips horizontally, grabs one guy's head between her ankles, does some shit to the other guy I can't work out, then spins them both down onto the ground. It sounds awkward but it looks so brutal and elegant.

    Also Robin's counters and "edged weapon" takedowns to mid game spoilers
    League of Assassin Ninjas

    Have to be seen. Even if you never want to get him you need to see them. He's got this one counter where he just starts kicking them like three or four times with one leg. I captured most of them in the vid I'm uploading right now. Obviously if you are spoiler averse don't watch the last one, I'll mark it appropriately.

    No there's definately one where you full on kiss knockout a dude. Which makes more sense for Ivy than catwoman, I think its a frontal combat take down, so very very rarely would you ever see it really, but I know its there.

    There's also a stealth takedown where you suffocate someone with both your hands over their mouth, that one doesn't seem very less lethal.

    Man, there are so many great catwoman takedowns.

    Like she just kicks up her leg and slides it around the guy's neck from a standing position. I know a few dancers who would murder to be that flexible.

    You don't frequently get to do her inverted take downs from being above enemies aliens style, they are also cool.

    I do like how one of batman's stealth knock outs is a reverse ddt. Classic Sting skin for batman... CONFIRMED!

    so for those of you who have played the game on consoles so far -
    I was wondering to what degree the game can be considered "freeform".

    The original game, while it had an open environment, was pretty much linear gameplay. There was very little in the way of being able to just run around "being batman", aside from monotonous collecting of foos.

    Is there any freeform "non-mission" gameplay besides foo collecting?

    I guess in essence what i'm asking is this more like the original Batman game or more edging towards Grand Theft Auto/Just Cause style freeform gameplay, where you could totally log on, punch some dudes, fly around, and blow some stuff up without having to touch a meaningful mission

    Much closer to Just Cause. If it makes any sense after I beat the game I felt like that I still needed to "clean up" the city.
