    I'll just be cruel to myself and wait for the actual release. Can't be bothered messing despite the fact I literally can't wait :(

    Some nice pics there.

    I see that the game has already been cracked, why bother with this staggered release shite, those pirate types are playing SP right now while we sit here jizzing over pictures and videos.

    Not necessarily, I'm playing SP now and I paid full whack via Origin; I don't pirate games.

    Changing my proxy settings for a few seconds to activate (my paid for copy) and then changing them back, whilst bending the rules a little, I consider the mimimal risk worth it.

    Sorry for posting again, but Multiplayer works fine, just disconnect from your Proxy and join away; I haz more delishusss screens if anyone wants them :D

    Multiplayer screenies: (High, 1920x1080, preloaded game activated through Korean Proxy)
    Knew paying a fiver more to preload was worth it. :)

    So activate via proxy and then just play away? Sweet. I'm playing Batman AA right nwo just at Killer Crocs lair. I have played it before on console just wanted to revisit before Arkham City next month.

    I'm going to activate shortly and play me some SP!

    Will post some screens too xD

    Damn those screens look good!

    Anyone else here patiently waiting for their preorder? I think I need to stay away from the Internet for at least 2 more days to avoid getting too hyper :(

    When I discovered you could activate and play early, and not get banned, I was flapping my arms and giggling like a little girl, dorm mates were like 'wat' :hehe:

    i see the M key for map is still totally useless. it need to show the whole map.

    less transparent, which is a slight improvement

    Well if things are working and it's a one time Proxy use then great, I googled about this earlier today and it said do at your own risk. Not that you can be banned just that it may cause issues with the game thinking you are in Korea etc lol

    Well I did just because I couldnt resist.

    Changed my settings back straight away and I'm still able to get in. Though is it just me or is Battlelog kinda slow to load?

    Well im not opposed to paying say 40 pounds for a preium title, have waited long enough for it to come. Only downside is my net, if i get full download speed on asdl im looking at atleast 6-7 hours if im on max all the way.
