Batman Arkham Origins is out on Friday, does anyone care?

My copy shipped earlier today. I'll have it in the morning. I can add it to the queue with Tomb Raider, TLoU, Puppeteer, Beyond:TS, GTAV and some PSN games. Next up, the PS4! Then comes the PS3 game hunt! That time when you start hunting down previous gen games for cheap!

People act like missing on-line is a huge deal breaker. If you read or saw interviews about this portion of the game, I personally believe it is not a deal breaker.

The Wii U version is $10 cheaper to make up for it. So, buy the game on Wii U sans multi-player for $50, or get multi-player on another console and spend $10 more....

im excited. I have the ps3 version pre-ordered.

It doesn't have as much hype this go around. Maybe ppl are sick of it. Maybe its because its a different developer.

idk.

I wish the Wii U version had online and exclusive content. So i wouldn't have to buy the ps3 version

I understand people are pissed at the missing online, but if people don't buy this one, then there's very little chance of the next Batman game coming to WiiU. I know people have good reasons, but so do publishers. They cut features to save costs on a console with a small installed base and small sales potential. If it doesn't sell and they don't profit, then that's it. WiiU owners need to support good third party games, or there won't be any more.


They cut content but you want to support them so they think its alright to do it. People vote with their wallet and if they don't want the inferior version then they won't buy it. I won't support a console for the sake of supporting it when the games are worse.


Yes, I don't own a WiiU, but I think WiiU owners should support the game, it's going to be really good, the best game released this season besides SM3DW, and let's be honest, nobody really cares about the mp anyway, do they? If you don't support it, then the next game won't come to WiiU at all. What's worse, supporting a port with a cut feature you probably don't even care about? Or saying good bye to third party support from WB on WiiU?

It's a really easy one. And they cut the mp to save costs on a feature nobody cares about, on a format with a very small addressable market and low sales potential, as well as a weak online system. They didn't do it to spite you, they did it because it's the sensible thing to do.

I'll get the Wii U version eventually, but right now I don't have money in the budget to buy a new game, so I'll be passing for a while.

If you buy it on sale, the publisher gets way less money and it's less likely the WiiU will get more WB games. If you want to support it, buy it new at as close to full price as you can.

Or buy the PC version, pay $10 less and get the multiplayer. Hell, go to Green Man Gaming and get it for $37.50.

I don't care that it's out on the Wii U. But then again, I never planned on getting the game anyway for any system.

The WiiU version is missing an online mode though and I cannot, in good faith, suggest to people to buy the WiiU version because of it.


Some people don't care about online. There are so many single player games with online that I never touched such as bioshock 2 and uncharted's online.


Yeah if online was that important for the Arkham games, then the previous two would have flopped.
