Trailers for Arkham City, Prey 2, Prototype 2

Soulskill posted more than 3 years ago | from the pretty-pictures dept.

Games 35

A gameplay trailer has been released for Batman: Arkham City, the upcoming sequel to 2009's Arkham Asylum. The game is due out this October, and according to a preview at Eurogamer, the game's developer, Rocksteady Studios, is taking seriously "its role as the Dark Knight's caretaker." Another trailer comes from Bethesda, this time a non-gameplay teaser of Prey 2, after the game's existence was officially confirmed. Kotaku reports that the game will have some significant differences from its predecessor, but details are vague and the game won't be released until 2012 — not unlike Prototype 2, for which there is also a new trailer.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Prey! (2)

Linked article title: "Prey shows off Female Vagina"

Good thing they were specific. I was afraid I was about to see a male vagina for a second there.

It says a woman's vagina, not "female". ALL female mammals have vaginas, so specifying it looks like a woman's as opposed to, say, a giraffe's is not a mistake. Particularly when the game deals with many different sorts of creatures.

Virtual_Raider (52165) | more than 3 years ago | (#35521758)

Gah... nevermind, its in the title. I missed that. In my defense it does say "woman" in the body of the article :P

"Nevertheless, You can also see a piece of big gun, which exactly looks like a penis."
Have they ever... seen a penis? If anyone has one that looks like that screenshot, I hope they see a doctor immediately.

I also must wonder why they make the distinction "female vagina" as if there's ever anything else?

Re:Prey! (1)

Kokuyo (549451) | more than 3 years ago | (#35501394)

Not that it really looks like any vagina I have ever seen.

Who cares about vaginas? I want to know if it will get a Linux release, like the first game!

I like how the title of the linked page mentions female vagina. Is there any other kind?

Too bad you're going to have to do it as another boring ass space marine. Forget the original protagonist, he was too interesting!

Let's Prey for 3D Realms (1)

MrEricSir (398214) | more than 3 years ago | (#35501164)

So I see 3D Realms not only has nothing to do with Prey 2, but they also are no longer involved in Duke Nukem Forever or Max Payne 3.

What exactly DO they do there at 3DR nowdays?

I thought they folded a while ago.

Sonny Yatsen (603655) | more than 3 years ago | (#35502206)

I'm fairly sure that 3D Realms is essentially acting as an IP holding company for their various intellectual properties such as Duke Nukem and Prey.

The fat crass hick one spends most of his time mouthing off like he's a mover and shaker on Twitter.

The other muppet spends the rest of his time flying back and forth between Texas and Argintina cuz he's shagging some bird down there.

The twink files paperwork and moderates the forums.

I believe 2k took over the duke nuke forever project, and are supposed to have a release soon.

I for one welcome these original titles and their bold, new ideas and... Oh.

The innovation is palpable! (1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#35501356)

So many original new games! Not a single one of them a sequel! Who would have thought that major publishers would finally get around to making new, innovative and never-before-seen games! Also: exclamation marks!

Re:The innovation is palpable! (1)

Seumas (6865) | more than 3 years ago | (#35501694)

Batman was good enough to deserve a sequel, but the other two . . . no. Prototype wasn't a bad game. In fact, it was good. But I'd rather see new stuff than more of that game. Prey? Meh. I don't know anyone who gives a fuck about Prey. What a random fucking thing to turn into a franchise. I guess it was just easier than coming up with new assets.

Re:The innovation is palpable! (1)

GameboyRMH (1153867) | more than 3 years ago | (#35503160)

Yeah who cares about Prey, it was only one of the best shooters OF ALL TIME.

Re:The innovation is palpable! (1)

Narishma (822073) | more than 3 years ago | (#35502080)

Nobody wants new, innovative and never-before-seen games, silly. It's all about sequels and re-hashes, that's what sells the most.

Re:The innovation is palpable! (1)

rokstar (865523) | more than 3 years ago | (#35504144)

A video game sequel is a different beast than movies and other media. The 2nd or 3rd iteration of a game can often be far superior and usually more innovative than its predecessor. Assassin's Creed 2 made the first look like it was a proof of concept. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood added a very unique multi player experience (or at least compared to whats currently out). Uncharted 1 to Uncharted 2 saw a huge leap in visuals and game play mechanic improvements not to mention the acting and story telling. Mass Effect 2 was far and away better than the first, ditching most of the RPG elements and refining the 3rd person shooter portions while pulling in all of your decisions from the first game. This rule doesn't always apply obviously however it is not uncommon.

Funny, I thought that Mass Effect 2 was worse off because of that. It was shorter, more linear, and generally less interesting plot-wise. The fact that it had been watered down into little more than another cover-shooter didn't help.

Re:The innovation is palpable! (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#35514542)

It was shorter, more linear

They just ripped parts out and sold them seperately as DLC. It probably takes longer to figure out how many DLCs exist for ME2, which are available to your platform, where you can buy them ,etc, than it takes to actually play the game ;)

Re:The innovation is palpable! (1)

meta-monkey (321000) | more than 3 years ago | (#35507338)

Did you play Batman: Arkham Asylum? That was an extremely innovative game. The control system made it more like Batman simulator than just a Batman game. I don't see a reason why you wouldn't want a sequel to that title. Even if it's just "more of the same," that same is really, really good.

Re:The innovation is palpable! (1)

aeoo (568706) | more than 3 years ago | (#35530184)

Fuck innovation. I would settle for just any good non-dummified game that doesn't try to target the lowest common denominator. There just aren't any quality games around, period. Every game company is working hard to increase the poly count, to make everything voiced over and motion captures, and fuck the gameplay. Everything is made simpler and simpler. Ridiculous. I wish we could go back to the days of text bubbles when superior gameplay was the only way to stand out from the crowd.

Oh god what happened? That sounds nothing like Arleen Sorkin.

Re:Harley's Voice Actor (1)

bilbravo (763359) | more than 3 years ago | (#35502546)

It didn't? I thought it sounded just like her. And if I'm not mistaken it is her.

It is.

Ditto.

Two-Face, on the other hand, sounded slightly off, but still not bad.

Prototype 2?
I wonder if they have found a way to fuck up the PC version even more?

Re:DUUUUDEEE! YEEEAAAH!!! WHOOO!!!! (1)

GameboyRMH (1153867) | more than 3 years ago | (#35503174)

Plays fine with an Xbox360 controller (not that I think requiring special hardware is a good thing...)

I definitely won't buy any toy accessories just because some game developers were too incompetent to do their job.
