As for me, cannot wait. Really enjoyed Arkham Asylum, and have high hopes for this......
I haven't yet got to play Arkham Asylum and for that I am ashamed. But the first chance I get to get my hands on it, it will be mine. I've seen the demos for the upcoming game and I believe it is going to kick some major ass. I mean The Riddler is going to be in the game, and one that doesn't suck, that in itself is a bonus as the Joker has to take up 95% of Batman's storylines. Lets hear about a lesser villain for once.

Agreed with different villains being of interest.....The Joker was the main focus of Asylum, so, time to move on.

Yeah, get thee to a store and pick up Asylum soon.

And I hope you're right about the new one kicking ass.

Have you seen the concept artwork of the new Riddler? He looks awesome, and as soon as possible, I will have that game. I assure you.

I hope so too, if the first one was good (and from what I saw it was pretty cool) lets hope that AC doesn't fall into the curse of awful sequels of movies and games alike.

There are plenty of other villains of note in Asylum, I actually really liked how Riddler was included in that game. Buy it, it's awesome.

Yeah, The Joker drives the story forward, but significant portions are spent with Harley Quinn, Mr. Zsasz, Killer Croc, Scarecrow and Poison Ivy. Even Scarface shows up! It's ridiculous.

I'm rooting for an Egghead appearance in Arkham City.

Yeah, true, there are other villains...but there sure is a shit-ton of the Joker....not saying that's bad, or unexpected......

Most definitely. Dr. Strange will be the primary villain City and Two-Face has a significant bit. I think The Riddler and Mr. Freeze have been confirmed as well.

Y u no mention Bane in first game, LeMac? Tons of other characters are hinted at in the game, but not seen. I loved how many characters they ended up including that way.

I think Joker's still going to end up being a major role in the new one. He was the only villain shown in the original trailer after all.

Point that musket of disappointment some place else.

The shout-outs to Calendar Man, Maxie Zeus and Clayface kicked ass.

Here's to hoping that Joker does show up a lot. Mark Hamill's said that it's the last time he wants to voice the role.

Arkham Asylum was a lot of fun yeah, but I don't think you could really call it a great game considering how strongly it leads you by the hand from every single moment to the next. It all fits together nicely... maybe too nicely. Easily one of the least challenging action games I've played recently. Still doesn't detract too much from the solid design and pure fun of it. I think the more open world design of the next game will do wonders for it, though.

It depends on how you chose to play it. If you searched for all the various collectibles, side activities, and what not, it was extremely open. It's all relative, everyone likes different things and such, but it's definitely one of my favorite games this gen. Certainly my favorite licensed superhero game.
