Kinda odd he'd stop doing something that kept paying after all these years. He's been doing mostly voice work like Robot Chicken and he was the villain in Castle In The Sky. I still remember how surprised I was when I found out he did the Joker. I'd never put the two together.
im sitting here playing, and i have to say....i really dont see myself doing all of these Riddler challenges this time. i will wait until more people have completed the game to discuss.
I've been making my way through the Riddler challenges (so far I've done enough to be given the locations of 3 hostages) and I will say that they become easier once you get a handle on what you're looking for. Most definitely make sure you interrogate all the informants you can or you wont and I repeat WONT know what you're looking for, especially when it comes to the environmental challenges or the clues cleverly by hints.
I also want it to be known that you can't do it all your first playthrough, unless you cheat and use a guide there are challenges you wont know are there that you can get the second time you play.
Im very interested in seeing the Robin/Nightwing dlc now too.
The worst challenges are the ones where you have to move from switch to switch without touching the ground. There's one by the Bowery that really sucks.
haha that is kind of harsh. but I would have to agree on the control. some of The Riddler Challenges require you to do crazy precision moves with Batman or be a master of the remote control Batarang and it can become very frustrating to fail something 20-30 times that should be easy all because of lacking controls.
Theres one in particular in the Bowery that require you to be on a ledge beside an open vent, throw a batarang away from you towards the opposite building, make a u-turn with the batarang, go into the vent with the batarang, come out the other side of the vent, make ANOTHER u-turn, got into the other open side of the vent, make an immediate 90 degree turn with the batarang INTO an incline and then guide the batarang into the lit question mark. ALL FOR A SINGLE RIDDLER TROPHY!!!!
And to catch Riddler there are like 400 of those hidden in the game. Some are braindead easy as walking up to it and grabbing, but the majority hidden around the world are like the one above. Crazy pressure pads, precise batarang tricks, and all. But like I said you cant get them all on your first playthrough, I want to say its impossible. So they force you to play after you play after you play. Which does add replay value, but at what cost....once you do the main story and side missions all the major and minor villains are gone so its just you cruising around the city beating up groups of thugs. Im about 86 away from catching Riddler, maybe something will happen.
Still an amazing game though.
As I said before I've really not had any problems with control in combat and for the most part when walking tight ropes and ledges have not had any problems. It's just when you actually have to do strictly timed or precision movements in closed spaces.
I haven't tried any of the Riddler challenges yet but I see them all over the place and can tell they are going to be a huge pain in the ass and boarder line impossible.
Yeah, I want to like the game but the controls are shit. I find myself moving all over the place during combat, punching the air half the time. When on small railings and ropes, I often perform a move that makes me plummet to my death.
And there's too many button combinations to remember, I just can't get the hang of it. I guess I'm getting old, this is akin to my parents would complaining when controllers starting having more than 4 buttons, lol.
