122 hours?! WOW!

 

How much of that is single player vs. multiplayer?

 

Have you tried I Am The Night? I haven't beat NGP yet to try it out, but I can reasonably assume I'd get my butt handed to me.

Amazon will have Batman: Arkham Origins on sale 11/28-11/29 for a mere $19.99!

 

Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CXTUBH8 (won't show the $19.99 price until 11/28)

 

It's a Steamworks game, so you'll get a Steam key.

 

If you're interested (which you should be), I'd act fast because you never know if they have a limited number of keys...Amazon has been known to sell out on certain games during major sales.

Damn, that's impressive. Hopefully after the Amazon $20 sale, there will be more people for multiplayer. My issue isn't in finding a game - I can usually do so within a reasonable amount of time - but rather that too many people are crashing upon loading and thus causing the teams to be imbalanced. Turning off DX11 features helped me, but I'm guessing most people didn't even think to try that.

 

Deathstroke is really annoying me. Definite top 5 crap boss fights of all time.

Because he's difficult, that makes it a crappy boss fight? I advise you not to play a game like Dark Souls or any Rogue-like then. Deathstroke is all about countering and timing. You can't deploy the same strategies you used against Killer Croc or Bane.

having to play IaTN mode for 3times is not impressive... i heard a lot of issue with people on DX11 and turn it off really help too... some even mention that turning off dx10 makes the countering as smooth as AC...
