Yeah the tie in comics and the ventriloquist display say she died like in the comics. Though wesker is still alive so figure that out.

Nope wesker is mentioned as leading his gang in Gotham outside of arkham city.

My top 11 things wrong with AK
1.Poison Ivy died
2.Barely any Ivy and Harley moments
3.No explanation into why Ivy looked so different
4.Poison Ivy died
5.Batman and Pam are now best pals
6.Poison Ivy died
7.If Ivy sided with Scrarecrow, her plants would never have been at risk
8.Poison Ivy's game over line *shudders*
9.Poison Ivy died
10.How could Scarecrow hold Pammy captive, and how did he get her. Did he drug her? Because if he did, that wouldn't have worked with her immunity to poisons and toxins, right?
11.Why didn't Harley at least try to convince Pamela to side with Scarecrow?

I wasn't serious, it was supposed to be a joke but there are a number of plot holes. And plus, she was forced to help Batman in Arkham Asylum, she didn't have a choice.

Poison Ivy is a supposed to be a villain. She's meant to hate Batman and Gotham so I don't see why she would work with him. And yes you could argue that she was saving her plants, but like I said, if Ivy sided with Scrarecrow, her plants would never have been at risk.

Actually, I gotta disagree with you there. If Poison Ivy did team up with Scarecrow why would that prevent him in anyway from deploying the Cloudburst? If he was willing to gas the entire city full of people on his side, why would he care about Ivy's plants were going to die. Either way I see it, Ivy would still have to team up with Batman. Though If I were honest, I think I would have preferred it this way as opposed to how they teamed up in the actual story.

I think that's one of the major plot holes in AK. We all know how poor this "team-up" was but if it was done properly, I'd imagine that Penguin and Twoface's gangs would have had some sort of cure from the gas. Ivy only ever thinks about her plants so if she teamed up with Scarecrow, she'd want to make sure her plants would be safe and so could help adapt the cloudburst so that it wouldn't affect plant life. I imagine something would have been done about it as Scarecrow really wanted to recruit Ivy and he knows she would never sign on if nature was at risk.

YES!
I can totally imagine them all sitting down and Sefton saying: "look, Paul Dini isn't coming back for this last one, but we co-wrote the other two. How hard can it be?"
6 months later, fires everywhere, employees rocking in corners, paper flying everywhere, and Sefton screaming to himself "THE ARKHAM KNIGHT IS AN ORIGINAL CHARACTER!!!"

Kind of like this but much worse.

Driving up walls

I'll start off by saying that I actually do enjoy the Batmobile gameplay but this is where I draw the line. Driving up walls is way more difficult then it needs to be. I can't tell you how many times I drove up a wall, only to lose control and fall to my death or land on my back like some insect that can't flip itself over. This is the furthest thing from being Batman.

I have been thinking of city a lot recently and i realized that one of my biggest issues there arkham knight has the opposite of. City felt like it had to many stories and kept flip flopping between them as if it was a kid who ate too much sugar. Knight has nothing to its story but the main plot. I dont like how city manages getting to penguin but i like that it tired to not have everything be about the main plot. Knight is just going after scarecrow and fighting only AK thugs and no one else at all. I really really hope that if WBGM makes another game its set right before asylum so we can have it take place in old gotham with the amusement mile but without the water. I want to see that world and that batman universes atmosphere. AK is the bare bones of the batman universe in terms of the main plot while city feel like its really gotham city. I love AKs gotham as a world but the people of it felt like they where barley involved. City is a batman story through and through. It takes risks and kills joker off but it still feels like its batman vs his villains not an army. How is it that the game that killed joker was even less of a big plot and was less important feeling then AK. I wish they would have the guts to make a game or ongoing set after city but that is as if knight never occurred. Though a new batman universe for the games seems even better.

I've made a thread about this, but the biggest problem is the RPG troops going to waste. Other than that, the jammers also went to waste in the main story. Lack of boss fights, ofc, other than "Predator therapy", which was a lot of fun. Story was kinda wonky though feels more structured than City.
