    pretty big rumour unless fake but totally makes sense.

    Can Rocksteady make a good Superman game? Many have tried and I wouldn't rate any of them.

    Might hear something at the game awards which would be cool.

    The problem with every single Superman game to date is that they use the "rules" of video games that characters are physically vulnerable. So from there they make up some bullshit where either Supes fights another super-powered baddie, and it's a dumb brawler, or he gets kryptonited, and it's a dumb brawler.

    They need to do away with that bullshit and concentrate on what would make being Supes fun. His speed, his powers, his ability to travel long distances. What makes him "vulnerable" is the fact that he gives a shit, and has to be careful not to kill the ones he loves by accident.

    If they can get that balance right, they'll nail it. If not, it's back to being a dumb brawler because we needed to obey the "rules" of video games (pro tip: there are no rules).

    Here's an example of a good concept for a super powered being. You're ridiculously powered, can travel enormous distances with ease, and are virtually invulnerable, and even manipulate time, but the whole aim of the game is to save the mere mortals and not destroy them in the process. It's a tech demo and an idea at best, but something that actually works without relying on the "don't die" mechanic of almost every other action video game around.

    Awww. I thought Taito's take was pretty good.
