6 Ways the Riddler is Batman's Least Effective Nemesis

author outsidexbox   3 years ago

The Riddler is the single least effective villain Batman faces across all four Arkham games, for the following reasons. Beware of spoilers ahead for Arkham Knight and subscribe to Outside Xbox for more Batman! http://www.tinyurl.com/SubToOxbox

When a villain calls himself The Riddler, the least you expect is some quality riddles, but it's not clear Riddler even knows what a riddle is. See the video above for sample non-riddles.

By the time we get to Arkham Knight, Riddler has given up altogether on challenging Batman with puzzles, electing instead to build a bunch of ludicrously elaborate racetracks that only someone with some kind of rocket-powered car would be able to complete. That's not a riddle either, Eddie.

Then he managers to create advanced Batman-proof robots to bring down the Bat, but fails to foresee a scenario where someone other than Batman fights his Batman-proof Riddler-bots. Catwoman, for instance. He also created a Catwoman-proof robot, which he only uses when Batman is around.

Why not just make one robot, that is impervious to both Batman and Catwoman, then let it beat them to death in a locked room? I guess that's why I'm not a Riddle-themed supervillain. That and I know how riddles work.

We’re not averse to putting in loads of effort for a worthwhile result, but we are dead against working our socks off for an insultingly shabby reward - as in the case of these unlockable game characters who were so much more hassle than they were worth. Take Bayonetta's unlockable playable character Little King Zero, for instance. Bayonetta is already a pretty challenging game, so imagine how much more 'fun' you could be having if you were playing as a character who was reduced to one hit point by every single attack in the game, regardless of how weak it was. That’s the situation you find yourself if you play Bayonetta as Zero, King of Little Devils, a demon who looks like Santa’s skeleton trying to fight its way out of a garbage bag and costs you five million halos or the completion of the game's diamond-hard lost chapter Angel Slayer. Or take Tofu from Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil 2 was full of great characters, from Leon Kennedy to Claire Redfield, to the unimaginably creepy police chief Brian Irons, to Sherry, the little girl who wouldn’t stop running off. Get six A ranks in a row in the main game, however, and you unlock a new character, called Tofu. Tofu is, as his name suggests, a six foot block of tofu with hands, whose campaign involved running around the sewers brandishing a knife. Still a better character than Steve Burnside from Resident Evil: Code Veronica though. Eff that guy. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about videogames, especially Xbox One games and Xbox 360 games.

Full motion video or “FMV” games were interactive movies in which the action took place in video clips, the gameplay was minimal, and the story was nonsense. Join us for our eight favourite unforgettable slices of FMV weirdness, and subscribe for more videos like this every week! http://www.tinyurl.com/SubToOxbox Night Trap, for example, is possibly the most famous FMV game of all time. This is impressive, on account of how it’s a barely interactive B-movie about trash bag-wearing vampires menacing people in a winery. That’s still less odd than Wirehead, an interactive movie that told the story of Ned Hubbard: a man who, for reasons never adequately explained, has a implant in his brain that means he can be controlled remotely by whoever has his controller. In the game, that’s you - meaning you have to make quick decisions to help Ned escape evil pursuers. When we played, that meant he ended up being mauled by a bear, but that's ok, we think that was supposed to happen. We told you these games were weird. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about videogames, especially Xbox One games and Xbox 360 games.

We recently revealed some of the in-game jokes we didn't get at the time because we were too young to notice most videogames are saucier than a Heinz bottling plant. Here now are your suggestions for times jokes flew right over your head like some kind of rude hang glider. Enjoy, and watch out for adult humour, wordplay, and possibly mimes. #jokes #7things #outsidexbox --- Become a member of Outside Xbox! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKk076mm-7JjLxJcFSXIPJA/join New Oxventure D&D t-shirts available now! http://tspr.ng/c/oxventures Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about videogames, especially Xbox One games and Xbox 360 games.

Sometimes in videogames you will often find yourself in possession of a weapon or ability that seems great at first, only to discover that when you use it, it's more trouble than it's worth. Here are just some of the times we’ve encountered that very thing. Enjoy, and subscribe for a video like this every Thursday, why not? Take air support in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, for example. Call in air support on your iDroid and your helicopter pilot Pequod storms in, playing his music at full volume and starts strafing everything in sight with miniguns, which alerts everyone to your presence, causes a load of mayhem, and stops you being able to score a perfect S rank on the mission. He then usually gets shot down, costing you a bunch of money. Cheers Pequod. #outsidexbox #unlockables #7things --- Become a member of Outside Xbox! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKk076mm-7JjLxJcFSXIPJA/join New Oxventure D&D t-shirts available now! http://tspr.ng/c/oxventures Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about videogames, especially Xbox One games and Xbox 360 games.
