Arkham Origins (Superhero game thread)

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/04/09/ ... -announced

So it turns out we're getting a new Arkham game in 6 months time developed in house by Warner Brothers and featuring a young Batman prior to the events of Asylum and City.

I admit... I'm concerned about this. I hope that Rocksteady are still sitting backstage and developing "City of Fear" behind the scenes. Not to say I am not happy with the idea of a new Arkham game (I am ecstatic!), but City was built with the building blocks for the next game in the franchise already there. Seems a bit of a backstep to do the prequel which will not give us anything on the Hush, Azreal and Scarecrow plots introduced as sequel bait.

For now I'll think of it like a Metal Gear Solid 3 scenario. A prequel designed to build in to the next chronological step. ---plus it means Mark Hammil might return, and that's always a nice thing.

So... I guess I'm buying a new Arkham game soon.

Since Deathstroke will be in it, I wonder the probabilities of him getting some custom campaign in this game.

But hey, why not turning this thread into a Superhero games one?

If you'd like it as a nice neat superhero game thread then that is doable. Injustice: Gods Among Us is almost out after all.

Surprising that we don't already have a Superhero Games General but I'm down for it.

Sooo... Injustice anyone?
Spoiler! :

So...If Slade from Teen Titans was based off Deathstroke...
...I have a huge interest in this game now.

Not even "based on", Slade is just Deathstroke's real name. Slade Wilson. Teen Titans didn't ever address civilian identities so they kept all of Deathstroke's magnificence without going in to his family history.

The whole thing with Terra in season 2 happened in the comics for instance in a story called The Judas Contract.

I eagerly anticipate seeing him in another medium. Recently he showed up in Young Justice but he was pushed to the side so quickly that it almost seemed a waste to include him at all.

Yeah, like stk said Slade is Deathstroke. It's actually part of why I'm such a huge Deathstroke fan now.

Hmmm, not so sure about this, with it not being made by Rocksteady and all... I think Harvey Dent put it best: You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
