Post in the anime section, or die.
i wouldnt know :[ i looks like its for PS3 only considering...

In April 2009 ads began appearing in the PlayStation Network service advertising the ability to play as the Joker.[29] IGN later confirmed that the Joker will be available at the launch of the game as a free download from PlayStation Store,[30] but will only be playable in the Challenge Maps.[30] Joker is exclusive to the PlayStation 3 version.

I hate how the PS3 has so many exclusives for this... XBox 360 has nothing, :(
Although I saw that if you pre-order it from GameStop, you get a free Scarecrow Challenge Map. I'm gonna' look into that, lol.

My parents don't want me spending an extra $10 just for a map, so they said I could just get the Collector's Edition from amazon... that's still awesome. I'm prolly gonna kill soemone with the batarang, xD

The hell? Extra $10 for a map you get when pre-ordering... Pre-ordering doesn't cost extra o_O Where are you pre-ordering from?!

Heh, I meant if I pre-ordered it from Gamestop, I would get the extra map, but the price is 99.99. At amazon, there's no map, but it only costs 89.99. So... I got the amazon one. Now I'm just waiting for it to come out. I flipped a coin.

Ah, okay.

Any ship/handling charges? That might put it OVER 99.99...

For Amazon? I think I have it free.
But now I'm just waiting 8 more days. Does it come with the like 2 day shipping time from when it comes out? Or since it's pre-ordered, does it get here when the game comes out?
Cuz if it's after the game comes out, I'll have to wait like 10 days, lol
^.^ So Seth, are you going to get anything of this game?

They probably ship when it's released, not FOR when it's released. After all, UPS and Fedex can sometimes ship things ahead of schedule. They couldn't risk you getting the game early.

I never reserved it... Crap. Going to have to try that tomorrow.

Of course I'm getting the game o_O

I tried to cancel my amazon deal and switch to gamestop so I pick it up when it came out, and with of course the extra map. Collector's Edition ran out! lol
So now I just wait for shipping...

Who's playing it already and how far have you gotten?

So far, I've beaten Bane... He was my last bad guy, and I think I'm headed towared Killer Croc... I'm looking for Dr. Young's notes, but I can't figure out how to get in her office yet...

ZOMG! Batman Arkham Asylum Collector's Edition has arrived.
In a cool, shiny box. Inside, another cool, shiny box in the shape of a Waynetech Batarang box. Inside, another XBox box containing 2 disc. Just got it now.
I shall play ASAP!

Oh, Dr. Young's note, it comes with a real life version of that, plus a comic book, lol. I'll report when I can.

It only does everything.
The CE edition is a disappointment according to reviews and the YouTube videos I've seen. The batarang isn't what I thought it would be, just some hunk of plastic on a stick.

Yeah. :(
Everything else is okay, the comic book, Dr. Young's notes, etc...
but really all that matters is the Batarang. That's what I wanted lol.

I was trying to pull my batarang off the mound yesterday, but didn't want to risk breaking it, :D
I wish it could be taken off, it's still like some dangerous heavy object (even if not like steel or something). Does like Eidos set up their CE or some other division or something?

HOLY CRAP!

I beat the game already XD I think... 10-12 hours will get you through it? But I didn't do all of the Riddler's challenges.

Gotta say... The ending fight was really disappointing.

Aside from being jumped by dozens of inmates, Venomed-Joker was relatitively simple... Standing on his stage, you use the Ultra Batclaw to pull him down, whack him while he's stuck in the ground and then just avoid him swiping at you for a few seconds until he goes up to his stage and sicks the inmates on you again... Very simple.

I'm not reading the spoiler, :) 10-12 hours, lol, then Hard should take like 25 hours. Cuz it's so much harder than normal, lulz.
This new profile, I'm trying to get as many challenges done as I can. Are challenges the riddles, or the question marks?

I think it's the riddles, not the trophies...

But then, there are actual "challenges" where you can play before starting on the game you've started... If that makes sense o_O
