I just figured that after the first game, the original AA was mostly destroyed and the facilities had to be moved.

Quincy Sharp is mayor and he bought out a plot of land to stick criminals in because he thought the Asylum was unfit. We know he's not all there from the last game, but the public thinks he is at least. Plus that secret room shows that he was planning on expanding Arkham into the city even before the events from the last game. Good enough explanation for me.

Apparently this game starts out with Batman still having most of his gadgets from the last game. I like how heavenly they take from Metroid, but I hope he doesn't loose them all in 10 mins and you have to find them again.

Ya I get that now *shrugs*. I'm ok with it really, just not what I was expecting I guess. Makes for a good backdrop to the story I'm sure. Really excited to see more!

After having to RMA four out of five 500GB drives I am done with Seagate.

I think I'm going to forgo digital distribution, and buy this game on disc, so I can take it home, grind it into fine powder, and then snort it.

That is a fantastic trailer. Gameplay is always better, but if you aren't going to show much then make a trailer like this.
