Batman: Arkham Knight "No one knows what it's like... TO FIX THE BATMAN!"

Recommended Posts

Why did they even bring that shit back in City? Unlike Asylum; City gives you an infinite amount of mooks to beat the shit out of if you need EXP. The only practical use the ever had was free exp.

 

I hate this kind of bullshit in games.

They could make the Riddler into an actual boss or make the collecting of the Riddler trophies more rewarding. Like for every twenty trophies or riddles, you get a Riddler quest.

The riddler trophies encouraged exploration and required some basic puzzle solving skills to pick them up, I hardly see how they have no use. Going back after beating the game and having hundreds of things still to find at least expands the game and gives you something to do.

 

And if you don't like them, fine, it's not an essential part of the game and you can ignore it...don't see the problem...

If the Riddler trophies will return, I just hope that coming across them won't be such a hassle to look around for like it was in City with the vertical distance you could hardly make out in the outside area's.  One thing I really didn't like about City is how some of the sidequest progresion just initiated randomly instead of scripted, like the Deadshot and Hush ones, or at least that's what I understood from it.

I'm saying it right now, there will be 1000 Riddler trophies in Arkham Knight tongue.png

 

Seriously the game will be five times larger than Arkham City so I wouldn't be surprised if there are that many. 

 

The whole idea of searching for trophies and solving riddles to find the others is really cool. It's like a permanent side quest which feels like part of the main story.

 

I just hope we don't get the bullshit Riddler trophies in Arkham City, where there were 40 you had to get by performing certain combo/moves. Not only does that not make sense, why on earth would Riddler award Batman trophies for performing certain combos and moves? Also, some of those combos/moves are so hard to perform - and can't actually be done until you finish the main story - that as a result it takes forever to get all 400 trophies to unlock the final confrontation with Riddler. Fortunately if you had the Catwoman dlc you had an additional 40 Riddlers trophies to find, so you could ignore the combo/trophies in order to get the 400.

 

Whilst I like the addition of New Game Plus mode in Arkham City (and Origins), due to the number of Riddler trophies I kind of wanted to be able to play through the main story again for a third time (in a row) whilst getting the last hard-to-find trophies. Otherwise searching for the trophies can get kind of boring.

 

I am hoping that Riddler will be part of the main story in Arkham Knight and not just a side quest like in the previous games.

I really want Riddler trophies provided they follow the design decision of Arkham City by having mooks respawn inside locations with brand new dialogue related to whatever's happened since you were there last. I think you had to go back through the Museum at least three times in City, but every single time there was more flavor dialogue about the villains and Batman's accomplishments - not to mention a lot of really funny mook jokes. The 60's Batman references made by the museum mooks related to the big freakin' shark in the tank got a big kick out of me.

 

I also genuinely enjoyed the Riddle trophies that were actual death traps with Riddler reacting over the radio to how Batman escapes them. I only think there were two of those in City (the ones in the sewer where Riddle counts down from you taking the trophy to the trap activating), but they were great. More of those please.

 

 

EDIT: On that note, is there any way to escape the trap with the electrifying floor without using the tightrope upgrade? That Riddler always accuses of you cheating (which is totally in-character) always has me wondering if there was a second solution...which may be the point, come to think of it.

It's apparently good, but nothing special. At $10 though, it looks like quite a nice deal.

Anyway, I've decided that I will pre-order Arkham Knight when I get my Ps4 (hopefully summer). I won't pre order now, just in case something happens.

Origins is decent but its horribly buggy and glitchy. I've had to restart my game several times while playing because I would encounter a game breaking bug.

 

1) FPS randomly dropping until I restarted

2) FPS dropping to 2FPS making the game unplayable

3) Enemies not spawning, bosses glitching.

4) Button to "talk" to NPCs not appearing

etc

Which is why I hope the Mr Freeze dlc is bug free. Since WB decided that giving us dlc was more important than fixing the main games issues.

apparently only the PC version is bugging out still.

Unlikely. The glitches remaining are mostly engine-related. The DLC will most likely run off the same engine.

I hate that you can't upgrade whatever skills in any order in Origins, you have to follow a tree.

 

Sucks cause I wanted to get all the Special takedowns and free flow combat stuff right in the beginning. I also hated having to do things like Gotham Protector and Worst Nightmare things just to unlock certain skills.

 

So much annoyance just to get the upgrades I want.

 

Also I just hate how lazy they got with the Wii U version compared to Arkham City which made great use of the Gamepad, also it had higher volume too cause in Origins, you can't barely here anything the grunts are mumbling in the distance or other things on comm.

 

 

What I did like in Origins through was that you can upgrade more of your gadgets like triple Batarang and also the triple counter. Also Bane was really awesome in the game too compared to the past games and I like the new enemy types with the Venom thugs, Martial Artist and those Enforcers.
