There is no demo news, and there probably won't be any until the end of the month. So the way I see it, this thread will get buried into the depths of the forum, everyone will forbget about it. Why? Because there is nothing ot discuss. I suggest making threads when they are needed. Becasue useless threads just waste space.

I'm glad the Captain created this thread; we need some good demo speculation, not just 'OMFG WHENZ THA DEMO OUT I WANT IT NOW!!!!!111!!1'.

I'm in two minds about downloading the demo. On the one hand, it will keep my appetite wet for the actual game, but it will also slightly ruin it for me, in the sense that I will have played a section of the game. You may argue that, if I think that, then why am I going to the Community Day? Well, I'll only have that day to test out the demo, aswell as watching presentations. What do you lot think?

ever play the dead space demo? 360 version anyhow?
because it sticks you in a spot that really sucks and yet the full game where that part of the demo is, is different and much easier as you know whats going on and what to do!
So this demo could be like that!

Unless your like me and enjoyed arcade 16 bit beat em ups too much when growing up.

(Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Double Dragon, Battletoads, Simpsons, Ninja Turtles, Mazinsaga, etc.)

Seriously, I'd be happy if they'd just release the challenge map demo from the stores on PSN/XBL.

Thats probably true seeing as Keir had a big ol notice up near the end of june stating we would be giving demo info the first half of july and that only leaves 3 more days to complete it. But as of friday its been reported that some of the facebook responses are saying it will now be near the end of the month.

I really think the best thing that Eidos can do is release the demo a month early. July 23rd, 2009. I mean with all the content we're getting this probably the biggest comic book based game release ever. Another reason that would be awesome is because it would be exactly a month to what would've been the official release of the game had everything originally went to schedule.

As far as Two-Face goes.I'm starting to think Harvey isn't Two-Face yet,I just find it interesting that they removed the "coins" that were mentioned in the GameInformer article,but yet there are Harvey Dent campaign posters on the walls.It might be a little inconsistent since Babs is already Oracle and such,but they did say this is an original IP,so,who knows what creative changes they could make.Just a thought.

Hi Guys & Gals

I like the thread CaptainMcMulla.

I hope the Demo does come out and in my opinion I would like it to be a Challenge Room and a different one from Crime Alley Map you get with our Batman Arkham Asylum Collector’s Edition pre-order just to leave that map for a surprise and to tease a map that you have to earn is a cool way to keep you playing and finding all the items to unlock the same map you played.

But I would also like a single player level a level as well as the challenge map I don’t think it should be too hard maybe the beginning of the game or level 2 in the game. It’s a hard thing to choose a level that will show you what he can do he shouldn’t be powered up till like the last section of the demo maybe then after trying him out and using the his basic abilities and power-ups you can choose 1 power-up weapon or combat move and get to use it before the demo’s end that would be sweet and a great way to tease us till the games release.

These are my thoughts I don’t what you guys think. That’s the problem with demo’s they can make or break a game for most people and if they don’t like it they won’t get the game you want to get it just right.

The best example for that is Splinter Cell for the PS2 firstly I’m a Splinter Cell nut just so you know the Demo for Splinter Cell was so hard I didn’t get the game till after I bought and completed Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow its demo was better than the first games demo btw. When I played Splinter Cell after Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow I found out they choose the mission like 3 missions from the end and that was the hardest one to go through even after playing it from the beginning but you got to know him and his abilities before hand which helped.

It was pretty much like an Airman chucked you out the back of airplane without telling you how to use the parachute if you take my meaning. But after learning this from my experience I like demo’s but I take them with a pinch of sault now.

I find it better for metal health and your wallet to read the reviews the good and bad and watch as many movies and trailers as you can before hand this is the best way for me and it works for me.

Take care guys can’t wait for the demo but more importantly the game.

Ps. Sorry for the long post But I wanted to share my thoughts on the demo but also the pros & cons of them since it's also an issue people are talking about in this thread..

CaptainMcMulla
13th Jul 2009, 07:32
^ good idea DarthHobbs. I was thinking along the lines of that too. I was wondering instead of spoiling the story mode they can give us 2 challenge maps. One invisible predator & one freeflow combat map, that way we can have the taste of the two main aspects of the game.

Hi Guys & Gals

When the demo comes out if we only get the Invisible Predator Mode and the Free Flow Combat modes I'd be quite happy with that and it's a good way to tease and show off Batman Arkham Asylum and Batman's abilities and the gadgets.

That might be the best way to sell the game in terms of the demo and that's the job of a demo to show off the game and what a good way so show off the game and it's other game modes and by extension the combat and tools and abilities you'll be able to use in the full game.

I really hope that the demo is invisible predator mode and the combat challenge mixed so you can see the many choices that you have within the game rather than just invisible predator or combat game play.

What do you guys think?

by my calculations, keir siad there would be an announce ment at the first half of july, so thus in 47 hours at GMT it wil be roughly be midday on the 15th, which is the middle of the month. so my hypothosis is that we will hear something on wednesday.

I didn't feel Assassins creed at all actually. There was no beat em up feeling I got from AC. My main strategy in that game consisted of climbing to roofs and throw the enemies to their death when they finished climbing.

For me it was more like the bouncer, just without all the teammates.

Is it back or are you referring to the one that was out like a month ago? Last time I was in Gamestop (I had NO idea this event was taking place) and I preordered it, the guy asked me if I came in to try it while the demo was in select stores. I told him no and he said I missed a hell of a fun time. The employees were supposedly playing it during every slow moment of each day that it was there. They ******* loved it. I was so disappointed to find out I'd missed it/not known about it at all.

If it's back, I gotta go to Gamestop next time I have a day off (which isn't till next week... when I get back from my physical exam for the navy). I won't be so anxious for the demo if it's back. If it's not, then I'm still sad and wanting to play the game, though reading these forums makes me feel a lot better because some people really seem to be having trouble dealing with a little wait... for a ******* video game. And not just a video game, but it's demo. It's definitely good for a few laughs.

I dont even want a demo, demos ruin games for me
i already know from playing the gamestop demo and watching the e3 demo that there is a vent that goes to some secret place in the first room you start out in, AND i havent even played the game!!
also if you play a demo too much then you get too good and it ruins the progressive advancment of your skill level to match how far you are in the game
but as for the demo that i have already played, the combat is sick... nothing like assassins creed, your a lot less stationary and it makes you actually feel like your the batman.

And i only got one more thing to say... be cool about this people, play the demo once or twice, dont over use it and ruin the game for yourself
i did that with wolverine and it was not cool
thx for listening

Apparently edios plan to release word about the demo a tad later, but i'd rather edios get what they want done than release a half hearted demo. They know what theyre doing.

On a different note, have you tried lego batman? I think its a very enjoyable game, I really enjoyed my playthrough and id highly reccomend it. Ghostbusters is also quite cool. There the games im tiding myself over with anyway!

I'd actually reccomend it, its a real fun game. You actually feel like bats, its quite strange lol. The graphics are actually pretty sweet, and theres alot more you can do in lego bats than the other lego games like star wars or indy, like bombs, more fighting moves etc. As i said the best way to see if you like it is to try the demo, although i think its a cracking game!

Today my friends.....I have lived
I played the in store demo. The last time I tried, gamestop had it's ps3 down. So I went to the one in the mall. I've watched videos and it looked boring after a while. It's really not, you don get tired of kicking ass batman style. The controls are fluid and easy to learn. The slowmo animations are great. I honestly didn't want to leave. I would have had a nice vid to go along but my friends are stupid :/
I can not freaking wait until august 25th

im looking foward to this game, its looks cool and the demo at gamestop was cool...

but that said, i worry becuase superman returns and jla heros looked cool and man did those suck.

anyway, the reason i am posting...

i keep reading articles and watching walk threws that say its the first two hours of gameplay.

if the game is done enough to send to mags and websites to play and preview, shoudlent it be done enough to make a demo.

assuming thats true, why not just say when that demo will be available? its seems odd to push back when your going to tell people when something is goign to be available.

14th Jul 2009, 23:28
There's a reason for everything my friends.
Perhaps some glitch set them back
perhaps sony/xbox live are the problem
perhaps they're watching us squirm.
Who knows. But also who cares. I've been salivating for this game for a year now. One more month can't hurt.....badly

So went down to Eb Games finished my payments and bought Lego Batman and this should hold me until the demo or even the game comes out but im not going to lie im still a little bummed that Eidos seems to be having a hard time sticking to their word...but after playing Lego Batman i would like to have a little invisible predator/Story mode demo But not doubt in my mind now this is going to be one of my most favorite games of all time right next to Earthworm Jim

So i decided to come and let some people know what alot of people are saying i know its not reliable but it helps some people to know what everyone is saying and this is the speculation
everyone is saying they are saying that the demo is probably going to be announced before comic-con and come out about Aug 5th to 10th i know that may be completely wrong but it does sound kinda of right for some reason so if anyone would like to give some stuff they have heard i would love to hear it
Also i hope thats not of topic to much i never got to see the other threads about the demo abd this is my first time on any forums

but i can't say i might have fallen of the the boat guys and em drowning so if this is old news let me know
I just read like right after my last post... they said on Facebook that they will be announcing the demo this month
So it must be before or after Comic Con because they have already said that they wont announce at comic con heres the post from Facebook

"Batman: Arkham Asylum - The Official Page

@ Teddy - we're announcing the release date of the demo this month so stay tuned because you'll hear it here first, y0."

So that's pretty cool But still really bummed they didn't announce it today

Im usally Quite calm, but thats really peeved me. Please dont make the bats demo like it aswell, Ive waited ages for ghostbusters now have to wait even bloomin longer when everyone else is playing it, and I dont want myself and others to have to do the same with b:aa. Please could someone explain the benefis of region locking for me? I dont really understand why companies would do it. Thanks guys.

Do what I did buy ghostbusters off ebay its region free and I don't think the demo will be region locked wouldn't be the best move on there part stopping potential buyers from certain regions.

now im pretty good knowing there will be something announced about the demo this month but if not then honestly im not going to make big deal over Eidos game because they aren't reliable if they don't announce this month

but still i read a lot about this and alot of people are making some good points like if the game is finished enough to send to mags and stuff then why cant they announce a demo? but i don't want to go to far into because i don't want to get pissed and get other people pissed so hopefully Keir will keeps us posted

People aren't mad. They're just impatient and used to getting their way. Instant! Now! You're not giving it to me faster! WHY?!!

Bah... Problem is, game developers, like Hollywood, shouldn't have decided giving fans more before they gave them the actual product was better. Over the years we've gotten more trailers... Before, a movie would have one, maybe two trailers, and that's it... No, that wasn't good enough. Then it was three. Then, trailers weren't enough, actual clips OF movies were released. You can watch almost a third of some movies in five minute clips now... Who the hell wants to do that and spoil it for themselves?? Well, now, people are used to it and DEMAND it...

Games are the same. The amount of trailers and media coverage in general DEMANDED now is asinine. It's just because the producers have given consistently more and more content out, to a consistently more and more demanding audience... Stupid. The old saying of humanity remains true...:

"Give 'em an inch, they'll take a mile."

The object should be to TEASE, not appease. So, it's their own fault for capitulating to their consumers. The desire will be there, even more so, if the tease is made all the more shorter and vague. Cloverfield, and a few movies that have followed (where the entire film isn't spoiled already in the multiple trailers, media coverage, etc.) re-introduced this notion to the world. Instant and now, now, now, is not always a good thing. In fact, we're a very impatient society (myself, heavily included). Ah well...

Screw that, make him get off or tell the clerk working there that you're waiting to play. It may seem rather juvenile to have to resort to that, but it's effective with difficult people and you'll thank me when it gets you playing without a law suit. ^^

That's funny though. . . it must be a fun demo.

Does anyone know where the information regarding the demo will be when there's information to be seen? I mean, I'm quite surprised that they've missed the originally stated time frame without explaining why, and I'm surprised we still have nothing at July 20th. That's life.

My concern really is that I just want to know where to look when it does come. Are we gonna get another forum header telling us all the information we need to know about when it's coming and what will be in it? Will they post it here despite the fact that this thread still hasn't been stickied? Will I have to go into that FAQ thread to find it? I don't really post here much, and usually when I do it's after looking through the forums for demo information, and then, when I can't find it, I might look at a thread or two and post something if the urge strikes me. Other than that, though, I'm just not sure where it's going to finally be displayed. If I assume there will be another forum header and there's not... that'll suck, but I also don't want to have to scour through the many, many threads (many of which are useless and/or random) to make sure we still have no information.

That's also why it would have been nice to get a little follow up post from the moderators or the developers on what happened to that demo information and what we should expect now. It's just confusing when, after missing their originally stated deadline, they say NOTHING to follow it with. I can only imagine they're embarrassed by their mistake and sitting in their office with their eyes closed thinking that if they hope that we disappear hard enough, that it'll actually happen. Then again, seeing some of the posts on these forums, I suppose I can't blame them.

Comic-Con is one of the largest pop culture conventions(It started out as just comic books,but since 1968 it has broadened its spectrum from comics to movies to video games,TV shows,anime and even music.)It is held in San Diego,California annually.However,It is one of the largest,but there are many other Comic-Cons.I've been to New York Comic-Con and WizardWorld Philadelpia in Pennsylvania,but I'm almost positive that Australia would have some,as they're almost everywhere.

Everybody, look at the majority of amazing games that you waited a couple years to come out aside from Batman Arkham Asylum. They didin't even recieve a demo, you might have been bumbed about, but not even then were you complaining so much as you are here just for the anouncement of the demo. And geusse what we'll wait atleast a week or three before the demo even comes out online. Rocksteady and Eidos have been doing a tremendously amazing effort to keep the consumers satisifed with plenty of information, screenshots, and videos of this game and now unfortunatly everybody here is geting really greedy.... You'll get the demo the same time you would have even if it was announced in the beggining of the month, just the announcement was moved closer to the actual release date of the demo, and IMO Eidos and Rcoksteady took out several painful weeks of people complaining the demo is so far away. They will release the demo whenever the feel like it, for now be satisfied with other info, screen's, and video's of the game.

It's as that saying goes, "if you give an inch, they take a mile." All developers must suffer because of another's doing.

In any event, I have seen confirmation of a demo in the pipeline and it was said that the release date would be affirmed at the end of this month; hence, I assume that the announcement tomorrow will be about the demo's release date.

The change of information is frustrating, but the lack of updating information is inexcusable. The main page is hardly updated with many weeks going by with nothing - and let's not even talk about the Blog - what Blog? The combination of taking down the demo announcement at the start of the forum with the lack of updated information has created all this frustration. It can simply be remedied with updated information at least on the progress of the game and the demo. We can take bad news, but we can't take no news. Isn't that why Rocksteady has this specific website and forum in the first place?

I see what you are trying to say. Keir doesnt directly give us information. He's the community manager so the bigger fish (no offense Keir) gives Keir the information and he passes it onto us. So if anything goes wrong or delayed its not Keir's fault its the big fish's fault. I mean Keir is a busy man im sure especially some of the stuff he has done for us
i.e. London Event, Competitions on the forums (more to come) etc.

Anyway back on topic.

Guys the demo more than likely won’t be released until 1 week before the game or after like Ghostbusters. That’s probably why we haven’t heard anything. On a side note any Madden players here? The demo goes life with the activation code for those who pre-order this Thursday night. A full 4 quarter game.
