So we're going to have to wait. The game was original set for an October 14 release date. I hate waiting as much as the next person but I'd much rather wait than get a game released before it's fully ready. As enjoyable as Batman's last game was, there were just too many glitches that drove me...batty. Let's hope the extra time makes the game even better than we imagined.

Here's the last trailer released in JUNE. How much will change by the time we get our hands on it?
