On the one hand, it looks as awesome as one might expect. On the other hand, it does seem a bit odd that Batman would have more gadgets in an Origins story.

It could be he was testing alot of gadgets to see what works for him.

That is one of my biggest "non-continuity" gripes about prequels - there being better tech in them than in the years that are supposed to take place afterward. In the case of Origins though, there is a line in Arkham city that may explain it:

Bruce asks Alfred to send him the line launcher to which alfred replies to the effect of "Why don't you just carry everything that you need on a bigger utility belt?" Bruce answers "too much weight. It slows me down." Something to that effect. You could reason that in origins, he was young and still figuring out what worked and what didn't. His inexperience made him carry more gear. In Asylum he didn't think he'd need much. He was simply dropping off the joker. In City, he was stripped down to the bare minimum in order to maximize his mobility.

I want to play "Batman Year One" where he has TONS OF GADGETS but you have to build them from scratch...HAHA... AND leveling level up attacks, and slowly unlock counter attack...

Will buy this one if no DRM...
