Anyone else think it's overrated? Just punching skeletons. It'll get boring quickly.

I think it could be cooler with zombies instead, I can fight skeletons in Detective Mode.

idk,

Dem Bones gives me like a comic book feeling.

Can't judge until you really play it.

BTW, why is it overrated?? it's must a challange map.

same could be said of jus punching only henchmen. if you like to bash it doesn't matter what or who it is.

Fair point, but then again, people are gasming over this but not really the combat challenge rooms.

It's a free challenge room map if you pre-ordered it. Don't complain, just enjoy. :)

Yeah, I know, but I think there's far more to look forward to, that's all.

I see it this way.

If I have $60+, I could buy Batman: Arkham Asylum. I could wait the day it comes out (where it may run low on Scarecrow maps) or I could pre-order for $5 and leave, come back and get the entire game + an additional challenge map featuring the Scarecrow.

It may not be a moneymaking seller, but I get another hour (or more) of gameplay.

I could procrastinate for the game + Joker = 115%
Or I could pre-order for the game + Joker + Dem Bones = 125%

I can't see many people playing it for over an hour, if that IS your point. I don't get it...

Some people may have multiple plays. And my point is why buy the game at the minute it comes out when you can buy it before and have a nice little addition to it.

No one really knows how much longer playing time it will give them. Some people can play it over and over again. Others will get bored quickly.

I see your point, however. But, it's something that adds more to the game. It's different from the other combat maps (I assume) as it seems to take a single attack. It's a new dynamic. Harder to string combos and what not.

In any case, I'm sure more DLC maps will come about.

Elpy
19th Aug 2009, 23:18
Yeah, but don't GET it before.

EDIT: That's not my point, anyway. It's obvious that people will get it if they can, but alot of people seem to be looking forward to that more than anything else. All I ask is, why?

Reeper0278
19th Aug 2009, 23:20

I never said getting it before.

OP, here's a question for you:

Have you played the entire Dem Bones map? Do you know all of the content in said map?

Who knows what else is in it? There could be a few Scarecrow encounters, for all we know. Don't make such exaggerated judgments before you even play the content itself.

If I don't know, how do the people that are getting (possibly over) excited?

How do we know about Batman being good? Demo was good but it could go all downhill from then on. Have faith. :)

If Dem Bones is a combat map off of Batman, shouldn't it be as equally as good? :)

Their sole purpose of buying the game wasn't the Dem Bones map. That's just an added extra they got. Adds more play time, etc.

You're right. Neither of us know what it'll actually be like. But, it doesn't mean they can't look forward to it.

Unfortunately, I'm not getting it. But, I hope it'll be released as DLC to everyone else. It may be fun to play, anyway.

Yeah, it will be fun. The reason I created this thread is because of what a friend said on MSN.

Me: So, what're you looking forward to bout Batman?
Him: Dem Bones looks immense.
Me: Meh, doesn't look that great to me.
Me: Bit overrated.
Him: Are you kidding? It looks awesome.
Him: Best thing bout the game.
Me: :l (irl)

You gonna listen to a friend more excited about beating up skeletons than being Batman and fighting supervillains? Hope you don't take that to heart.

Well, that's his opinion. I doubt he actually meant it. Was probably exaggerating.

In any case, upto him.

I'd post the chat log, but I don't keep 'em. Trust me, he was going to go to the shops, but then he saw the map and he's extremely excited about it. If I'm playing the demo, he'll occasionally just remind me that he's super excited for Dem Bones.

De hip bone is connected to the overrated exclusive pre-order challenge map which will probably be released as DLC soon after release.

In one month exactly after the release date.

Do you have a source on this?
Because the FAQ only says it may "possibly" be released a month after.

The FAQ.:p And I'll find a thread for this in a second(not the FAQ). http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?p=1107775#post1107775

Some people mentioned it here. Though I think by possibly in the FAQ it means the exact date, I.E. a couple of days later or earlier.

I was going to do that, too. But, I'm waiting for a response on another matter.

So, if you can find out, that'd be great.

Dem Bones is a combat challenge map. According to some other posts it's the most difficult one.

I respect his opinion but I mean this challenge map will probably one of the maps which stand out most and will be very different.

This is what he said.

"Hey man...

lol, you'll have to run that question by me again.

The Dem Bones map will be available on the day of release as far as I know."

The maps however will be free, the crime alley map comes free with the CE and the Dem bones will come free with a pre-order from Gamespot, hope that helps Goku! :)

Dem bones is a Free Flow combat map, it's a little obvious from Batman continuing a chain of FreeFlow in the video, and it is said to be one of the hardest challenge maps. I would assume it is one of the hardest maps because the skeletons appear to brake in one shot thus preventing you from continuing your FreeFlow with ground takedowns, or hit them twice, and that's pretty much what I'm predicting.

Thank you. But, do you know if it will be available, eventually, for those who didn't preorder from GameStop or Game?

Will the Crime Alley map also be made available for those who didn't get the CE?

Crime alley has no plans for being available, since it's the small reason of purchasing the CE, and that's all Keir said, in other words he's not sure, I would think, about the dem bones map.

Question, Because I have a problem. I won't be able to get the game in its release at gamestop and I only payed 10 for them to hold it. They say they would hold it for 48 hours. Now, I won't be able to go up and get the game (I live two hours away from any Gamestop), so the CE I preordered is hopeless, now I won't be able to get it at the store or online before it comes out because there isn't a bank I can deposit the money.

Can I buy the Dem Bones challenge map code on ebay? and where is a reccommended place to get the ce?
