Multiplayer Was Considered for Batman: Arkham City

Maybe you've had a dream about running around on the rooftops. You had pointy ears and wore your underwear on the outside of your pants. Capes were involved somehow. Maybe you also dreamt about having a buddy or a couple of friends running around in the same outfit with you.
Look, that's just plain freaky. First, no one wants to see your underwear. Second, no one wants to join you while you do that. That's probably why the developers of October's Batman: Arkham City decided against including multiplayer in their Batman game.
Speaking with press about multiplayer, developer Dax Ginn commented that the house behind Batman: Arkham Asylum "considered it pretty briefly." The feature set was dropped because the entire game would suffer further production of a multiplayer mode.
This seems like deja vu in the strongest possible sense. Haven't I written about this before? Wait a second. I HAVE.
Why is it that every damn month CVG has go and harass Rocksteady about freaking Batman multiplayer. Why can't a single player game be just that? Why do we have to have multiplayer tacked on to everything just so it can sell a million billion copies like every goddam suit wants it to? Dammit!
