god f***ing damnit I was really excited to play it then I got hit with the f***ing windows live sign up bull s*** that it forces you to do wtf


GFWL and SecuROM are being removed from Arkham Asylum and Arkham City in due time. The move to Steamworks is in closed beta at the moment from what I've heard.


Wait so the BS activation limit will be gone too?

Repetitive combat in an over-rated game.

Expect a really fun game. Then get Arkham City. :)


I got the trilogy for less than $50 on greenmangaming


You paid way too much.


Did you miss the part where he got the entire trilogy, which includes a yet to be released game?

-Windows live.
-Pressing one button to kick everything's ass, with somersaults and backflips.
-Great voice-overs.
-Great Batman vibe and interpretation of the Batman universe.
-Linear and often boring gameplay.
-No challenge on normal difficulty, but the gameplay is not solid enough to play it on anything else.

Making the GFWL account was such a pain in the ass. Don't expect to reliably be able to sign in until 48 hours have passed. Otherwise you'll get an error 50% of the time.

Otherwise the game itself is magnificent.

It's one of 2 games in this gen that I've 100%'d, and the only one I did so multiple times. I just love the feel of Arkham. Add that to the classic voices of Batman, Joker, and Harley Quinn from the 90's cartoon, the same voices I hear in my head when reading the comics, and it's gold Jerry, GOLD.

It's one flaw was most of the boss fights sucked, something that was completely fixed in Arkham City.
