Batman: Arkham Asylum

This game is so damn good. It's better than some of the movies in the franchise. I'm playing through it for the third time right now and I can't get over how high the production values are. The Joker is fantastic obviously (thanks Luke Skywalker) but everything about the game just kicks ass. The soundtrack rocks. The combat rocks. The mood is creepy. The plot keeps pushing you forward. The voice acting... OMG thank you Batman: The Animated Series (which is a whole other thread in itself).

  • The damn Riddler challenges! I never do out of the way stuff or extra challenges in games because it's frivolous to me, but they tied the Riddler challenge into the story and dialogue in a way I could not ignore! His incessant taunting drove me to completion!

    You can't target it with a batarang or throw a remote controlled one at it?


    wait... through the floor? you mean it's inside the floor? how did you find it then?

    Yep, through the floor. I can hear it chattering under there, and the map and a good two hours of combing the area back up its location. Makes me wish I could noclip in the 360 version.
  • Got about 98% of the joker riddles, no guide.

    The game was supereasy though, aside from Scarecrow. Although FPS issues might have had something to do with that too (was playing on my old PC). Can't see why Croc should be an issue, didn't have to reload a single time for him :?. Ivy only once I think.
    I am apparently way worse in stealth that you guys though :p

    Now play it on hard.
  • RIDDLER riddles. Not Joker Riddles.
  • my only issue was the final joker battle...even on hardest, once you master running around in a circle, he's too easy. It's the whole "programmed to follow where you are at any given second instead of a few feet ahead of your positioning" issue many games have.

    You know, I vaguely recall also thinking there was a set of Joker Teeth under the statue, only to eventually find it elsewhere on that map. Look around the whole map more--I remember being surprised where I found it based on where I first heard it.

    I'll definitely give it another look. I still want to run through the game on hard, so that'd be the perfect opportunity.
