    I assume by City, they mean the Harley's Revenge DLC and/or some of the side-stories, because the main game was Dini's work.

      Dini wasn’t the sole writer, and even then his work has sucked since the 2010s.

        Dini's work since 2010, compared to Suicide Squad vs Justice League?

        So, who are the other writers and what did they do? Goon background dialouge?

        Yes, and Dini wasn't involved with the Suicide Squad game, you fricking moron

        Therefore the conclusion is it's the Arkham writers on City and Knight who aren't Dini

    >They didn't write the script, they just had editorial control by means of being paid to consult on the script
    So, they just admitted the script, written by the people who wrote previous games, was not good enough and needed to have outside consultants paid to "make it better." Nice self-own there as you "correct the record."

        Funny how people spent so much energy whining about Sweetbaby being super woke company and that’s why the game story is bad and “disrespectful” and shits on the Arkham games. And now suddenly when that entire narrative crumbles you immediately try to pivot to something else.

              Particularly after they left, they had Sweetbaby there to rehab the rep of the company, as they were already having protests.

                Any kind of major rewrite or work on a script structure, etc. would warrant you losing your story credit and at best get you based on a story idea, etc. credit. The fact that they kept they guy’s name in the story written by credit is a sign that they kept major aspects of the story intact while script doctors tinkered around edges and individual dialogue. You literally cannot get away with rewriting everything and still keep the guy who wrote an outline six years ago as the main writer.

                So, there's no gotcha in this question, but WTF is up with the order that the names are listed in the credits? This clearly isn't Hollywood union rules.

                That's literally not how it works and is never how it worked. Rewriting and tweaking someone else's writing doesn't mean they didn't write for the game. Where the frick are you even getting the idea that it's every worked the way you think it does where writers are getting added and removed based on some arbitrary amount of their original ideas existing in the final product?

      Suicide squad kills the justice leage came out.

      Cratered HARD.

      Absolutely terrible storytime of pain class writing.

      Made by the developers of the Batman console/pc games, although the founders were forced out by Me Too sort of shit midway through production.

      A significant contractor is SweetBaby, a "cutltural sensitivity" expert, that has a track record of fricking up games.

      Now, someone on the dev team is trying to cover for Sweetbaby, saying that they only consulted and didn't write the whole thing.

      My personal read is that the dude knows that the game studio is going to be dismantled and is looking for his next gig.

          mimi made the later desperdos games and shadow tactics. Sweetbaby has been after them for YEARS trying to get a job looking over their cultural references to make sure they were kosher with modern sensibilities. To do this, they dug into old game materials looking for absolutely anything to complain about and getting that into the hands of protest groups.

          The game that Sweetbaby worked on with Mimi was Shadow gambit. Which killed the company and had terrible writing with the same kinds of problems that suicide squad had...but not as insulting..
