I Beat the Riddler!

I did it! I’ve defeated the Riddler in Batman: Arkham City! I scoured the game world for all the Riddler trophies, puzzles and collectibles (well, almost all of them, turns out you don’t need every single one), I only looked on the Internet a few times and then I took him down before he ever realized what was happening! Ha! I am the best Batman around! This game was fantastic!

So many characters! So many nooks and crannies to explore! So much Batman depth! This game was a comic book geek’s dream come true! And Riddler was the last, toughest guy to catch!

Now he’s my bitch.

Let's all just forget about Jim Carrey

A lot of people don’t give the Riddler enough credit. There’s a lot more to him than just the guy who tells Batman what his next crime is going to be through sometimes easy riddles. The crime is hardly the point. Riddler isn’t out for riches. He isn’t out to steal anything. He’s out to prove that he is smarter than the Batman. That’s why he gives those clues, that’s why he leaves those hints. The day Batman is unable to solve a riddle is the day Riddler wins!

To quote a recent Riddler puzzle I saw online, “What makes life worth living is competing against the very best. Someone who can figure out my plan as I tell it to him. After all, if I didn’t tell him my plans, they’d just…succeed. How is that fun? You see, we’re playing no-limit, world-level death chest…and he’s the only other Grandmaster around.”

That wonderfully sums up the Riddler.

But now that I’ve beaten Arkham City…what comes next? Tune in tomorrow for the 6 things I want to see in the third Batman: Arkham game.

  1. That’s pretty cool man can you actually fight him or is it a cut seen?

  2. That sucks you can’t kick his ass the riddles are annoying especially when you want to beat up thugs and the riddle keeps appearing.

  3. Actually you sorta do kick his ass. You get right under the wooden panel he’s standing on and press the takedown. Batman grabs him from above and slam him to the ground. Then, he punches him in the face, delivering the final blow.
