    Why are there puzzles based around getting your car somewhere

    This is so. fucking. stupid.

    I've only done the first one.

    Please tell me there aren't too many more.

    Also that Polygon review was like, factually incorrect

    During that sequence with the monologuing villain, they totally handhold and tell you what to do

    I actually thnk that aside from the problematic way the female characters are used, Knight's story and dialogue is pretty damn enjoyable.

  • ChincymcchillaChincymcchilla Registered User regular
    Yeah here's the thing

    A lot of people are saying knights writing is bad

    I don't disagree with that really

    Its super enjoyable though

    I'm actually very much enjoying the writing in Arkham Knight, barring the shitty treatment of the female cast

    Which is overall a tremendous drag on the game as a whole, more than any Batmobile puzzles could be

    I completely agree. It's a fun game with forgettable writing and some damned troubling treatment of its female cast.

    No I don't.

    It's a junk food superhero story, much like the other games. And in that context it's pretty fun.

    There's a glut of fantastic games out there to play.
    I don't begrudge anyone enjoying the new batman game, but I will not be missing anything in life if I skip it.

    That's true

    unfortunately there's still nothing out there that's actually done the combat right, with the possible exception of mordor

    I actually like the mordor combat way more than Batman's, but it is specifically because it isn't as challenging, so that's not going to be as fun for some people.

    All the female characters are either kidnapped, killed, used as a piece of equipment, or a combination of the three.

    No I don't.

    I lent my ps4 to a friend so he could play bloodborne. Thankfully this should give me some time to actually hear stuff on Batman before I decide to get it or not.

    I would probably play a batman game for the story, because I'm a terrible nerdo.
    Probably via an easy mode if it's available, and while following an gamefaq so I wouldn't miss content.

    Quick question for anyone playing it

    Is there any way to make the controller not make noise when you first turn the game on?

    Everyone is treated as a plot device or object for male angst
    Oracle is kidnapped about an hour in to drive a wedge between Bruce and Gordon and eventually shoots herself after being dosed by fear gas (which is later revealed to be a fake-out but it is shit writing either way).

    Catwoman is kidnapped by Riddler and forced to wear an explosive collar and wait to be rescued by Batman.

    Poison Ivy is imprisoned by Scarecrow and then imprisoned by Batman and then forced to go with Batman's plan or else "he will burn every plant in Gotham."

    And apparently the Harley Quinn DLC has Penguin call her a harlot a ton and literally ask how much her going rate is. Because she's a whore. And also she is just obeying Scarecrow the whole time.

    Shadow of Mordor used it pretty well

    So did Infamous 3

    I wish more PS4 games used it

    Well, everyone is treated as a plot device. That's one of the things I've been most disappointed by so far with Arkham Knight, if it's not the main storyline, every character is basically a quest dispenser or, in one case, literally a button you hit to start a VR sequence.

    Me, when I'm playing Silent Hill Shattered Memories or Transistor

    I didn't realize Mordor used controller speakers

    Did you maybe turn it off?

    It lets out a metallic *shink* like a sword being unsheathed to let you know you have an execution ready, also when you walk over bushes or stone or whatever, the speaker simulates the sound of what you're walking over

    Also in loading screens that's how they feed the story to you

    I know you can disable the volume of the controller speakers on a system level, via the controller on ps4.
    If you use headphones you can set an option to have it route into the headset instead.

    But yeah there's a lot of gross stuff in batman

    I would say that there have also already been a lot of very good moments

    If you're not into this type of game this isn't gonna win you over

    If you like being batman and can get past some gross elements, its probably the tightest playing of the series

    I think the reason the Batmobile puzzles piss me off so much is because it feels so contrived

    You're not doing anything special you haven't done in Asylum or City, but suddenly you need the Batmobile to blow up a wall or rescue hostages or some bullshit

    If this were Asylum or City I would have gotten in with explosive gel and grappled hostages to safety, because you do just that in those games

    It feels like the worst justification just to include a stupid feature

    If I didn't already know, it wouldn't have meant anything to me

    But I don't know anything about the character he really is, anyway

    It's just a name I've heard before

    I disagree

    The sequence where
    the knight corners you and the batmobile is behind them and you use the remote on them was genuinely super cool

    It is some abilities that you've had before bound to this object, which gives it more personality for me

    Yeah if you know nothing about Jason Todd then it isn't super obvious

    But if you know even the most basic version of Red Hood's story then it is SUPER SUPER OBVIOUS

    But it's not like they've built him up in previous games at all
