Thanks for the post, great interview....alot of detail.

I read both articles, but in the first one, after the first video, the interview kind of took a samfisher turn if you know what I mean. Like, in the 2nd video, i think that it looks like a splinter cell game. But more combat oriented.

Amazing by the looks of it, im definately getting this game.

Thanks for the interview, RCG.

It's always nice to hear from Hill. He obviously didn't want to give much away, especially in regards to the story, but its always reassuring to hear about how much dedication and effort was put into the story and characters. Too many times we've seen those elements tossed aside so combat and/or graphics could be the main (and only) focus.

AND I WANNA KNOW WHAT THE DLC IS!

It's good to see that there trying their best to keep the story under wraps unlike some companies that don't seem to care.

Totally agree with everything you said here.

I like how he mentions Arkham as a character. A lot of times locations or even objects become characters without you realizing it right away. In the commentary for Gotham Knight, Denny O'Neil talks a bit about how Gotham City is as much a character as Batman...and in Star Wars, you really get emotionally invested in the Millennium Falcon. Whenever something happens that makes you think "This is it, they're really gonna lose her this time." you're all like " D: Oh no!", like it was the death of a main character.

I liked the bit at the end where it mentions either "going in fists flying" or "surveying the scene like Batman would" ... I think I'm definitely the latter!

Glad you guys are enjoying it.
The interview got my own hopes up about the game as well.
Batman just isn't Batman without that gritty, morbid feel, and I hope the story lives up to comic fans' exptectations like Hill suggests.

Once again, another brilliant article/interview RCG. Read both and It sounds awesome. Very excited to hear him not exposing the story as that's a main thing the fans are waiting to delve into besides the combat orientated play. Very happy as well they've dedicated alot of time to the story, the characters and the combat to be a true batman game. I've already pre-ordered this game but damn I so want it(and my PS3 back from repairs) now though.

I was super excited when Major Nelson announced the demo was out a few hours before Friday, midnight.
Downloaded it as soon as the announcement popped up on his Twitter; unfortunately, it's the same demo I played at E3 and SDCC.
Regardless, I had SO much fun with it -- in the privacy of my room without a bunch of con-goers watching.

Seriously, stealth was so much fun.
I don't see why anyone would WANT to go in "fists flying" after they learn how to string up criminals.

Already pre-ordered the game from Amazon with their $5.00 off coupon code (5OFFARKM in case you guys need it).
I'll be out of town when the game comes out -- hence, I probably won't be reviewing it.
