It seems this game has plot holes, which happens when you make a prequel.

I think these are plot holes:

Harleen Quinzel met The Joker in Blackgate, yet according to her file in Arkham Asylum she first met him in Arkham.

Bane and TN1 (Titan).

Jim Gordon hates Batman and is a Captain not the Commissioner.

Barbara Gordon, if Asylum is set after this and Blackgate, when/how did the Joker paralyze Batgirl?

Barbara is in this but where's Dick or Tim?

How can Arkham Asylum be set after Blackgate when there's still a big gap?

There may be more, like Shiva, Deathstroke, Penguin, Firefly, Killer Croc.

Oh and where's Two-Face?

inconsequential, i.e. the harley one

how is jim gordon being a captain in this one a plot hole? did you think he was born the commissionaire?

No but I did expect him to get promoted by the end.

Harley worked at Arkham, not Blackgate, she became infatuated with him at Arkham, not Blackgate.

How is that not a plot hole?

did you, oh right.

they changed it, from a throw away line in her bio, so it fit in with this story. revisionist, yes, but it doesn't stop the story from making sense in any way

I suppose, I've heard the bio tapes in Arkham Asylum are basically easter eggs/her dialogue from an episode of All New Batman & Robin or something.

while we're here

i couldn't find the old gcpd building from arkham city in this one. the one mr freeze used, with the bat-signal on the roof. which is odd, since it would be around this time it was shut down.

Is Crime Alley in this?

The gcpd building wouldn't have a bat-signal yet, they hate Batman in this.

crime alley is in this, complete with chalk outline and flowers

yes, but i'm talking about the old gcpd building that was in arkham city, the one shut down five or so years before arkham city, which means it should be shut down around this game. it had the bat signal on its roof, so it would stand to reason it was open whilst at least gordon was commissioner and was friendly with batman. but the building isn't present at all in origins and the actual gcpd is in new gotham, in an area not part of arkham city
