News Comments > Batman: Arkham Knight PC Issues

At least Rocksteady has proven to understand how to implement a very good keyboard/mouse control scheme in their ports. Kb/m is much better in the Batman games than in e.g. GTA (flying with kb/m is HORRIBLE in the GTA games). I loved the other Batman games (Origins was a not as good as the predecessors but still alright) and will wait for this one to be fixed.

Damn, what a loss. The first soundtrack I ever bought (back in the 80s on vinyl) was his for "Aliens". Great soundtrack, great composer. Rest in peace, Mr. Horner, I loved your music.

Translation:

We tried to make something we would like instead of something gamers at large would like, thus it failed. It doesn't help that we are hipsters either.

I read it as "We are geniuses but you people are too dumb to see and understand this. But in 10,000,000 years from now, when apes rule the world, they will find a boxed version of our brilliant game and will worship us as gods, YOU STUPID HOMO SAPIENS MAGGOTS!

Shouldn't be difficult with upcoming game titles such as Doom and Need for Speed. Or Hitman. Or Ratchet and Clank. Or Star Wars Battlefront.

Doomfront Battlespeed? Hitman and Skank? Doom of Speed?Clankman?

Yeah you could almost call it a demonstration of some kind, a 'demo' if you will. What a novel idea?!

Exactly! Don't fall for a demo or even free levels that are not in the final game or stuff. We don't want this!

InBlack, please join Slick, CJParker and a few others under the bridge. They're really missing you down there.

Yes on spysteam and only on spysteam , that is not ALL pc gamers , jezz ya all think steam is the only place to play Clown 's

Said the guy who is using spydows and is using NSA Wide Web.

Let me guess: You hate Steam (as you did before when you used a different nick) because you cannot "test" Steam games hassle-free as long as you want without paying? Right?

I feel your pain, but at full price GTA continues to be a top seller. There's no motivation for them to discount it.

No harm done. I can wait. Won't play it in the next two years or so anyways. My backlog is... endless.

Best Holmes ever? Jeremy Brett.

Have you ever seen the old Basil Rathbone flicks? It's not even close that he's the best.

Yes, I have seen the Rathbone movies. Brett is a much better Holmes than Rathbone, much closer to the character in the books.

Him and Peter Cushing in their version of The Hound of the Baskervilles was always my fave version of that story - though I prefer Basil Rathbone for the rest of the Holmes flicks. That and all the old Hammer flicks they did together, The Gorgon and The Creeping Flesh being particular favorites. He was amazing in everything and what a sheer volume of work. I think I'll have to give The Wicker Man and The Man With the Golden Gun a watch soon.

Best Holmes ever? Jeremy Brett.

Thank you, Sir Christopher. A great actor can turn even horribly written characters into something watchable on screen. A rare talent. Great guy, very professional and reliable actor.

About Steam Sale: So... There is NO GTA V deal, only deals on GTA V bundled with stuff I don't want? How about just the game, Steam?! And then they wonder why people prefer to buy from G2A and other key resellers.

Welcome to 1997.

Seriously, what the hell is with the appalling graphics? This makes Fallout 4 look nearly not terrible.

Hey, is this the site where they applaude 8bit graphics in modern indie games because gameplay > graphics? If not - what happened to that site?

Warehouse Tycoon.

Great idea!

How about "Drone Commander"? You fly an Amazon drone delivering goods to clients?

Maaaan, on release day of Fallout 4 I will accidentially fly one of those drones to my home. On the way home, I'll be trying to shoot down all other drones!

So...... what if some day GOG will do something unforgivable? Inquisitive

Like geo-locking games/sales and introducing regional pricing? Ooops, they already did this.

They're no longer saints, although they're still better than their competitors.

Batman Arkham Knight - Game is 40% off with this code:

BATMAN-ARKHAM-SAVE40

At GMG

Thanks! Bought it!

The Batman games are a great example of how you can port from console and have a great keyboard/mouse control scheme already in the release version for us pc gamers. I like Origins, although it was the weakest entry in this franchise. I hope Knight will be as good as Arkham City is.

Not sure what you expect them to add to make it "more" of a PC game. The only thing I can think of is a hotbar, but that's not going to happen.

Really? You don't know? Then please read this thread and the other Witcher 3 threads. I won't repeat everything that's been written here.

At least all the keys are now rebindable. It's evolving into a pc game. In a year or so the bugs have been fixed and it will be perfectably playable with keyboard/mouse.
