Batman Arkham Origins details emerge: axed features, new det

Sounding promising so far. Legends of the Dark Knight was mostly a great series with some really strong stories so that's a good template to be copying.

Looking forward to the first meeting with Gordon and seeing how their friendship develops. I take it they're going with the standard police corruption/Batman's a criminal handling of the GPD? Could make for some interesting tension in the plot.

Yep, reports indicate that it's classic GCPD - they're out to get Bats as much as the criminals are.

I wonder if Deathstroke the Terminator will be playable. (scratches head in thought)
I had fun once, it was awful.

Shhhh, you're not supposed to use the "...the Terminator" bit after James Cameron sued them for copywrite infringement

Really? That's quite petty. I always thought that Deathstroke was the Terminator, before the Terminator was the Terminator. Terminator.
Being good at stuff is overrated. Probably.

So no Rockstar, no Dini, no Conroy...talk about making a rod for your own back WB. :(

Dini has quit Rocksteady anyway so even if it was them I don't think he'd be involved. Makes me wonder who they'll get for Arkham 3 though to pick up the plot threads he left.
