Well I just finished the clayface fight and the credits are rolling. I'm really hoping theres a free roam "continue" like in AA. I really am not ready to start new game plus.

Stick around to the end of the credits. It's worth it. Also, the side missions, which I skipped during the campaign makes it feel like your still in story mode. It's awesome. Waaaaaaaaaay better than AA.

Wow. I only have 80 of 440 Riddler Trophy's. I would have bet top dollar that I had at least 150.

:::sigh:::

I gotta give it up for the brains behind this game for actually making a lot of them hard enough to where you have to figure it out on your own. I have yet to watch any YouTube videos that show what to do. I love doing this on my own.

So, I'm exploring Arkham City, picking up trophies, saving people and all that when I land on a water tower right next to the City's wall. And then I got to thinking, what would happen if I flew off the tower, over the wall and into Gotham City?

I won't spoil it for anyone that has yet to do this themselves, but it's pretty funny and a complete shock. I was like what the f*ck!

I've been hunting down the Riddler's Hostages and made a successful rescue in the Conundrum Maze for my achievement points. Just did my first session of Air Training. Now I'm tracking Deadshot.

42% Complete overall.

I absolutely HATE playing as Catwoman, its the biggest flaw of the game. Its pointless and completely takes away from the game. Her movements, her combat, everything is just the complete opposite of why I love the game. She can't take the least little bit of damage and the combat with the incredibly weak gadgets is just not fun. I'm going to drop the difficulty on this Two Face bs and move on to what I bought the game for, TO BE BATMAN!

I have a sneaky suspicion that Rocksteady will farm out the job to another studio with the intent of making a Catwoman game so that RS can focus on the 3rd Batman game.

Are you still on the Two-Face Boss fight?

No I had to read up on the Two Face fight. Apparently he is the weakest of all bosses so I hung off the bridge and pulled him off. He takes very few hits and when he goes down the bad guys disappear. I made quite a bit of progress for the time that I played. I cleaned up the Deadshot mission, the Serial killer mission, and the mysterious symbol guy mission. I did a serious fore head slap when he revealed who he was. The couple times I saw him and the sword I KNEW looked familiar and its just been a while since I'd read that story line that it just didn't click. Along the way I picked up some joker trophies, solved a few of the "scan this item to solve a riddle" recued the last remaining political prisoners, and got the 4th Riddler hostage. The to finish off the day got the 50x combo achievement. Yeah today I pretty much tossed out the window.

JFYI the number of Riddler things you have to collect/solve to access the 5th hostage, 320. Thats 320 out of 440. I'm just assuming the last hostage challenge is close to the last or on the last puzzle.

355 and counting. Just a couple more areas to get to. Those little green glowing guys really pay off. The markers on the map, unlike in AA, point to the exact location of whatever it is. When you are in an area with the balloons, penguins, or Harley intercom systems, those are marked as "breakable item" on the map.

400 gets you your show down with Edward and its funny! Just the trap he has set and the end result if you succeed. Its not real difficult to figure out how to solve this one.

Ok the run down on the fully 440. Obviously all the riddler trophies, and the riddles that have to be scanned to be solved. Then there's the balloons (jokers area), also in the steel mill the Harley intercom statues, I'll let you figure out how to destroy them. The Ceramic penguins (Penguins area), the tyger security cameras also need to be destroyed. There are boxes with hackable terminals that like the green glowing guys you interrogate will show you where all the cameras are in the area you found the terminal in.  Also the one that minght be the biggest pain in the ass is the combat "Riddlers revenge" challenges. Its the very last box in the menu that shows you how many of what ever you have gotten in a given area. The descriptions of some of the things you need to do can be pretty vague. Theres a couple that I don't know how the hell I'm gonna do them. The Catwoman trophies do count towards the progress to get the Riddler and are necessary to complete the whole 440.

I'm at 220. Bah!

Umaine, you're a beast!!

Even though I'm "only" at 220, I'm proud of myself for NOT giving into the temptation and searching on YouTube for walk-through's for some of the more difficult, head scratching Trophies. THIS is why I love the Riddles for this game. it blows away Arkham Asylum in every aspect. You really do need to think outside the box in your approaches here.

Also, even with the campaign long over, the game continues onward and feels like the "campaign" is still in full effect because you are getting additional "Boss" fights when you have to retrieve or rescue something...or someone. With Asylum, I always lost interest halfway through the Riddler's Trophies search once the campaign was finished. Not so here.

Some of these are far outside the box and can be down right controller breaking. Most of those involve the remote batarang. Had a couple of the glide from pad to pad ones give me fits too. The AR training challenges I don't think I'll be getting. I've tried a few outside of the initial 4 that get you grapple boost but after that they ramp up to the point that if you are off even by a fraction of a centimeter you fail.

I've done 3 of the first 4 and ironically enough, the one labeled AR 1 (I think I have it right) is proving to be the most difficult of the bunch. It's the one where I have to coast to the first ring and then dive bomb into the next 2 and then hit the 4th ring just before it goes into the Joker's Entrance. That's where I keep failing. I can never get to the end of the tunnel that has the 5th ring. I'm putting this one off to the end because I'm cussing up a storm and I fear that I will throw my controller at the TV, causing more damage than needs to be.
