    Wow, is there no buzz at all for Batman Arkham Asylum? Game got a 9.5 out of 10 from IGN, and IMO the first game was amazing. Cant wait to see what Rocksteady did with this one. Should be waiting at home for me today when I get home from work. :D

    Don't have a console so I bought the game for PC. Sadly it doesn't come out until mid-November on PC so I'm going to have to avoid all news/talk about this game until then. Got it for $30 on pre-order though so I can't complain too much.

    I got it for free with purchase of my GTX 560 Ti Superclocked :)

    Well, mine is a digital download so I'll have it the minute it drops.

    Same here. I just have to download it from Steam.

    You've got me there. I bought mine from some shady digital distributor I had never heard of before in my life. But I got a good deal. :D

    I played Arkham Asylum on the Xbox last year but never finished it. It was cheap on Steam a while ago (and is again now) and I've just got round to playing it again.

    It's ok, but I do remember enjoying it a little more when I played it the first time round. I'll probably get Arkham City when it comes down in price and for the Xbox rather than the PC. Arkham Asaylum is one of those rare games I felt plays better on a console than it does a PC.

    I plug an XBox 360 controller into my PC and I might as well have a console. Now, I don't have a high end graphics card so there are some artifacts for sure, but I couldn't care less. The game still is good to me. Other people may disagree though.

    I think that is what I'm going to do once BF3 comes out

    The first one was great, and it's been one of the games I've been looking forward to the most. However, money is tight and I absolutely HAVE to get Uncharted 3 when it drops. Considering that happens right after Halloween (and Halloween weekend), I'm gonna be about broke. So the money that could be going to Batman is going to Drake instead.

    And right after that, Assassin's Creed: Revelations comes out. So Batman might have to wait for Christmas.

    EDIT: Well I lucked out. After hearing me talk about how I wish I was getting this game, my mother went ahead and got it for me. Thought it was cute that my mother randomly bought me a game even though I'm 29. lmao

    Wal-Mart has a really sweet deal for console players. If you buy the 360/PS3 version of Arkham City you get Akrham Asylum for free with it.

    Haven't played either, but heard great things about them. Going to work through Asylum first before City.

    I'm in the same boat - I bought a graphics card recently and now I have a copy of Arkham City sat there in my Steam games list and I can't download it :p

    It's pretty annoying that they announced the delay. I could have got Batman out of the way before Skyrim, but now they release within a week of each other and I definitely don't have time for both.

    Using a 360 controller versus PC players will probably put you at a disadvantage.

    Yeah, the control scheme definitely lends it's self to a controller. But having played AA on both I can't say I felt any significant disadvantage to using keyboard + mouse.

    Can't hurt to try :)

    I have never been able to play games like AA on the PC without a controller. I've just always found the keyboard/mouse combo to be way too clunky. Maybe there's just a learning curve there and I'm too incompetent to get past it. I suck at it.

    I'd definitely prefer a controller, but I only have wireless ones and I can't motivate my self to buy another expensive Microsoft accessory.

    Can't wait for it to drop in a few weeks for PC.

    I think mine is a Madcatz version from Wal-mart that I paid like $20 for.

    I find all 3rd person games work better with a controller. AA in particular, the Scarecrow sections weren't exactly difficult, I just found them easier on the Xbox.

    Same here. The cheapest I can find the wireless adaptor is circa 3x what I paid for the game, so I'm happy battling on with the KB and mouse (it's not as if it's a major issue anyway). If I get more 3rd person games, I'll probably invest at some point.

    Does the plug and play kit not play nice w/ PC's?

    Nah, all it does is charge. Even when you're plugged in to the Xbox with it, that's all it does; you're still using the controller wirelessly.

    The PC will recognise it as an Xbox 360 accessory (if I recall correctly), but that's it.

    Yeah, so you need to pay again for a wireless receiver if you want to use your wireless controllers.

    That's what I was going to suggest. Or a used controller. They can be found cheap as well...
