Nah, I still want to see Rocksteady do a Joker-free Batman game, then they can do Supes, or better yet Justice League. Just imagine that....

I doubt they will.
Joker was like... the fuck-all end-all of their promo scheme pretty much.
Joker sells.
Bottom line.


and yet they managed to make a really well selling joker-free DLC

I'm not saying a batman game can't exist well without Joker.
But if they want a sure-in way for the game to sell... Joker.
DLC's are irrelevant because the core game still had Joker. The game itself already sold.

But I'm' all for a Joker free batman game.

I'm also totally happy with Arkham Asylum and Arkham City back to back.
Between both games,
we've had
Joker, Penguin, Mr.Freeze, Bane, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, The Riddler, Catwoman, Clayface, Two Face, and even Harley Quinn.
I love how they presented all of these characters, and the big Bat himself.
It was stellar.

So, what exactly would a new game bring to the table?


You missed Killer Croc, Ra's and Talia Al Ghul, and Hugo Strange, but I kind of agree, they have kind of done all the major players, I think the key would be to give it a good story and give you other elements that define Batman and his world, The Batmobile, Batwing, more playable allies,etc.

Can't say I'm excited about it, apart from "lore" reasons about how a punch from Superman should rip Flash's head off, or how Flash should never even get touched by Superman, there's the thing about this game that it looks like Mortal Kombat VS DC expanded.

The best thing about that video was one of the comments that calls The Big Bang Theory "nerd black-face".

It's so accurate and to the point.

I think it looks ok considering it has a year until release, my main complaint is that it needs a faster pace and looks a little clumsy, as for Flash being slow and being able to survive a hit from Supes, that could either be explained by the armour he's wearing, or like in MK Vs DC, it might be explained by some outside force balancing the heroes powers.

Another complaint is that the arena called Fortress of Solitude was actually what looked like Metropolis...

it's so horrible.
A beat em up with the justice league?
It was retarded in MKvsDC
fuck, it was retarded way back when they had this SAME damn set up in a game for the Sega Genesis.

It's like

"Okay, lets see how we can take these ridiculously superpowered heroes, and even em out to stand toe to toe with guys like batman."

Superman would obliterate all of them.

a punch-em-up game like this with well established characters is bullshit.
Not to mention- how much creativity is actually put into it? They spend most of their creative process figuring out how fucking superman can punch Batman without decapitating him. Then whatever reason they come up with, becomes the basic plot.

It just seems overwhelmingly silly to me and fundamentally unnecessary.
You know how many GOOD ideas there are for beat-em-ups? They had to make the Justice League?
Damn.
And I mean, it's not even that original.

to be honest, I don't really care if it makes sense or not, it's fucking awesome. it's not like comic books are renowned for having consistency with their own characters power levels.

And the story mode for this actually has a nice premise. A dictatorship of super-heroes being fought by other heroes and villains.

The biggest issue, aside from making a game with inherently unbalanced characters is how this is an outdated game genre, it's also a problem that Mortal Kombat has been suffering over the years, even as the most succesful franchise in it's own niche.

But it just doesn't cut it anymore to have characters in 2D settings beating each other up, it does little justice to the potential videogames have today.

YES. THIS.
They could do SO much with a justice league property but they choose to do what? A 2D beat em up?
That's so limited!
Fucking hell.
I wanna run through a city as the flash, fly like superman, lasso motherfuckers as wonder woman.
And I don't wanna do it narrowed down to combo buttons in a PVP fight.
It's such a narrow minded concept.

Feli nailed it.

Uhm..........you love Mortal Kombat :lol:

Mortal Kombat was a narrow minded concept to begin with based on a Jean Claude Van Damme movie, Bloodsport. It was meant to be a simple property to start out with.
It's a competition game, and it was meant to be that way. However, a property like Justice League has WAY more potential than a simple 2D fighter. There's no good reason for it to be made into one. And its a disgrace to all the potential the property has AS a video game.

People, imagine if Arkham Asylum was a brawler like this?
Punch the shit out of Joker, Grundy, Croc...
No exploration?
It would've been 'alright' and forgotten just as fast.

That's what they did here.
They took something that had Mass Effect-ian potential as a game-verse, and decided the best thing to do was made a PVP brawler.
Oh the creativity that must've taken >_>

Mortal Kombat in retrospect is flawed. I haven't actually touched the game in over a year.
I long for the character creation (kreate-a-fighter) mode in Mortal Kombat Armageddon. It added lasting reply value to the game.
Something which these games don't often have honestly.
I'm not a Soul Caliber fan, yet I play Soul Caliber V at least once a week. Just to create new characters and test em out.
Otherwise? PVP games like this fail to me.
They really do.
I'm invested in the mythology of MK because I've been a fan since I was a kid, but now that I'm older, the gameplay itself is lacking.
