6 Ways the Riddler is Batman's Least Effective Nemesis

author outsidexbox   4 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.

You're a busy person. It's easy to lose track of current affairs until one day you look the window and see surveillance drones, stormtroopers and propaganda screens. If you suspect the place in which you live is an evil dystopia, don't worry. Stay vigiliant and subscribe: http://www.tinyurl.com/SubToOxbox One of the quickest ways to check if you're living in a bleak, totalitarian dystopia is to stand in the street and look up. Brutalist skyscrapers are a dead giveaway, especially when mounted on the back of a giant robotic spider (see: Timeshift's Alpha District). Gross zombifying epidemics are another warning sign, such as the rat plague in Dishonored's city of Dunwall. You should be equally concerned, however, if your home city is eerily clean, as with the City of Glass in Mirror's Edge, where all the litter has been swept up and incinerated by a corrupt government, along with all the homeless people, stray dogs and political protesters. Nazi-style uniforms on government officials are another red flag (see: Killzone), as are actual red flags if they have swastikas on them (see: Wolfenstein: The New Order). Though if you screwed up your alternate timeline this badly and didn't notice you're living in a dystopian nightmare, you should really be paying closer attention.

Sauron smashing the Shire, George Washington going power mad, and Luke Skywalker turning to the dark side: bleak alternative timelines like these give us a gloomy glimpse of how things would go if it weren’t for videogame heroes always succeeding at solving everyone's problems. Consider these times it was the darkest possible timeline and subscribe for a video like this every Thursday! The Assassin’s Creed 3 DLC called The Tyranny of King Washington, for instance, imagined a grim alternate history in which George Washington realises that the only problem with being president is that you have to worry about stupid democratic elections. Far better to just crown yourself king instead. On the other hand if you finish the canonical do-gooder nonsense of The Lord of the Rings: Conquest main campaign, you unlocked the Rise of Sauron campaign, which asked “what if Frodo didn’t destroy the ring, and instead hung onto it and then Sauron’s forces conquered the entirety of Middle-earth?" A deeply grim alternative timeline in which Hobbit corpses are burned on Ent bonfires, is the answer. There there was the decidedly non-canon DLC alternative timeline of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, in which all the good guys turn bad or die at the hand of Darkest Timeline Starkiller. That's not to mention the darkest timeline in which Resident Evil's Leon Kennedy is circle-strafed to death by a bunch of masked Umbrella goons, played by you and your friends in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. For shame. Now who will save the day in Resident Evil 6? --- 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.
