    ...In Arkham Origins.

    And for those of you that have been living in a rock or think the only Batman is Christian "RUHDUHDUHDUHDUHD" Bale, the REAL voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy will not be reprising his role for the next game, which will be a prequel (obviously) to Asylum and City.

    The game is due out later this year for all major platforms (PS3,360,PC,WiiU) and will not be developed by Rocksteady Studios (who developed Arkham Asylum and the fantastic Arkham City).

    No Paul Dini (writer for the 2 batman games)
    No Mark Hamill (Apparently Joker died at the end of City but I call Bullshit)
    No Kevin Conroy
    No Rocksteady Studios
    Apparent Multiplayer being added

    My hopes of this game being good are fading.

    Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker ..you certainly know them, even though you haven't knew their names ....but if you don't know their voices, then you don't know Batman, and is living under a rock indeed

    This guys not being voicing in a Batman game is blasphemy !!

    Nooooo...I would be able to (grudgingly) handle Kevin Conroy not reprising his role, but there's no Rocksteady OR the original writer of the series? Ugh. When too many things start changing, that usually is a bad sign.

    Mark Hammil was Skywalker in Star Wars is his most famous.

    And kevin conroy IS the voice of batman. He's been doing his voice since the animated series back in the 90's. Hell, look at his IMDB:

    Well ..Kevin Conroy voices all things batman for 22 years or so.. ..I don't know his filmography, but talking about the batman universe, he IS the Batman.
    Mark Hamill has done the Joker for as long, I think ...he is awesome as so.. ...And you may remember him as the original Luke Skywalker ;)

    edit: Bah ..Shadow was faster :P .

    Why would joker dying at the end of AC matter if this is a prequel?

    Mark Hammil said he's done with The Joker, he put him to rest. City was the last thing he would voice joker as. It's a shame, he had the perfect voice for it.

    I read a game informer that had An article on the hands on experience with Arkham Origins.
    Tbh, I still have complete faith in the game, the article has stated that it has stayed VERY true to the other two games in the series.

    Lots of voice changes in the past couple of years. Harley Quinn, the Joker, Lara Croft, Solid Snake, and now Batman's long-time voice actor is leaving the role to make way for a new voice.

    At this point I wouldn't be surprised if I saw the headline, "Link finally gains a voice in The Legend of Zelda U."

    *EDIT*
    They should just use Morgan Freeman's voice for everything. Problem solved.

    To be fair, they're going for a younger Batman with this game, so going for a different voice is sensible enough. Besides, I love Kevin Conroy, but it's not like he's the only person who could ever handle the role. And considering that playing The Joker was killing Mark Hamill's voice (he actually started coughing up blood because of it), I can't blame him for wanting to go out on a high note.

    I'd totally be up for the voice cast of Under The Red Hood taking over for future games. NPH as Nightwing and John DiMaggio as the Joker? Hell yes.

    He was? I've never heard of this. I had a feeling it was putting strain on his voice considering his age and the type of voice he was doing. Reminds me of Linkin Park's Chester with his singing. It must put so much strain on the throat, but apparently he did some training so all the pressure was being put on his stomach or something.

    So even his own body was trying to stop Linkin Park? And he conquered it with treatment?

    It's official - Science has gone too far.

    It makes sense since it'll be about Batman when he was young. As for adding multiplayer... :shit:

    BOOO ADDING AN ADDITIONAL FUNCTION TO THE GAME IS BAD.

    Holy fuck are gamers so self entitled that they'll complain about additional aspects of the game (like multiplayer) being added? It's not like every game sacrifices single player for multiplayer. Although if the game does vice versa everyone's okay with it.
