First of all, excellent, and I mean EXCELLENT article on the magazine, so thanks for that. Now, my question:
- Would you PLEASE ignore everyone that asks for Co-op? PLEASE.
Just give us another beautiful Batman experience, that's all that matters.
Oh wait. You are the ones answering the questions... Right. Could you fowrard this one to Rocksteady? Much appreciated!
a number of the radios in Arkham are playing news reports by Jack Ryder, the character who becomes The Creeper. Any chance The Creeper will show up in Arkham City??
It sounds like they are going for a new open-world approach to the game. Will it be like Infamous(limited interaction with the world besides side quests), GTA, or somewhere inbetween?
Will there be any kind of co-op in the game?
I still haven't gotten my *** issue! It never takes this long!
have they improved the gliding
Will Warden Sharp be an antagonist in this sequel?
How open is the world? Joker or Two-Face (or someone else) as the main villian? If there is co-op, please make it a seperate mode, like Spec Ops in Modern Warfart 2. Open world side quests?
Will the boss fights be more epic?
What types of new gadgets can we expect?
Will there be multiple "factions" targeting you the entire game, or just one main one (joker, or two face)? (I think the more factions against you the more you'd feel the craziness of the city)
Will there be more boss fights similar to the scarecrows boss fights? Like will they be a sort of mini game? Or would they generally be focused on combat fights? I'd enjoy a combination of both, but I want them to feel Bigger, and more epic!
I loved the first game, and I'm sure the sequel will be even better!
Will there be any Major DC hero cameos like Superman or Wonderwoman?
Will we play through all of Gotham or just Arkham City?

Will the game be rated Teen or Mature?
Wierd question, I know, but just wondering.Asylum seemed to be pushing the Teen rating at some points.
I want to know how sure you are that Robin will be in the game. I really want there to be either an optional co-op mode or challenge room because that would make the game even better than it already is!
Did rocksteady mention scarecrow making a crazy appearance like the first game.
