They basically said they had nothing to do with origins and that's enough for me to ignore the games existance
It's amazing how people just pull things out of their ass,there's only one direct mention of Origins in that article and saren just posted it,even the article has a completely different title. The guy was trying to say that they're concerned with making the best quality product,what others do doesn't influence their decisions or change their plans.I cant believe I'm posting this it's crystal clear.
So Rocksteady is telling us to do what most of us are already doing?
Seriously though, the story itself was fantastic. Better than City. It was the gameplay that did them in. Just too many problems. During my play through at least.
I agree, its like being part of a Batman movie. The gameplay was buggy, but I agree after the patches fixed most of these issues, I thought Origins was better than City. Awesome boss fights.
Hill was really kind instead, of course from his words is clear that WB Montreal can't be at the same level of Rocksteady, but they did what they could. About the story to explain to WB how works the UE3, I think that there were more than a misunderstanding, it's enough to see how much bugs had Origins for understand that. WB took their code, but they didn't understand it at all.
I agree, Origins has a better story than City, and the scene when pops out Joker for the first time? Just awesome. The people underestimate this game cause the bugs, and it's true, but the story, side missions and boss fights, were very good. I think that WB Montreal have understood how to make a good Batman game, they have learned by Rocksteady, and I think that they will come back for another Batman's game. In my opinion, I thought the first time that I played the title, that the WB could do something more, but they don't wanted take so many risks, so they were held back to do more.
@toastergeist: the story was good but it had nothing to do with assassins and Slade was kind if disappointing. Also I was hoping for black mask to actually do something and be a cool villian. And I loved how Arkham city used a ton of villians or referenced them, even the obscure ones. Rock steady knows its Batman
In terms of the story, Origins is the better than City and Asylum IMO. You get to see Bruce/Batman develop more including seeing his relationship with Gordon grow. I also loved the Joker and Bane parts of the story the most they really added more depth to the characters. Although the biggest disappointment for me was that Deathstroke wasn't a big part of the game/story who I thought would be the main villain besides Black Mask given that awesome trailer that came out for the game.
In general though I think the 2 biggest problems with Origins are the bugs and the fact that it doesn't look or feel any different from City at all. It would've been nice for them to create a different looking Gotham for example since this was Batman in his younger/rookie years.
It`s not the best Arkham game (Batman Arkham City is) but it is my favorite, well that`s until Batman Arkham Knight finally releases. I don`t think they are ignoring it as being at the very least apart of the lore, the game itself was not made by Rocksteady so its being discounted as being apart of their original trilogy of games but I don`t think that changes its existence within the events threaded within the Arkham games.
@pokeysteve: I would definitely have to disagree. Origins was a complete atrocity. The story really wasn't anything we hadn't seen before, whereas Arkham City (while not entirely original) mixed it up by adding in some unexpected twists and plot developments that I found to be rather fresh. In my opinion, all origins had going for it was the multiplayer (which, although fun, is nigh impossible to get to work) and improved crime scene segments. It truly is the black sheep, so to speak.
