Proof that I May Be Playing ARKHAM CITY Too Much

Posted by FoxxFireArt (110 posts) -

Here is a bit of photographic proof that I may be playing BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY a bit too much. I was just goofing around, having fun, and trying to beat my previous score on one of the Catwoman combat challenges. I'm not a leader boards chaser. I scored pretty well in the challenge, and out of curiosity I decided to check the leader boards. I think my jaw dropped when I saw I ranked 77th on the entire PSN leader boards. This is a year after the game has been out.

I love playing as Catwoman in these challenges. In the predator challenges, Catwoman can move so damn fast and no one can hear you. It feels so awesome to clear a room of three guys before the alert goes out on the first.

I was surprised to see there were no guides made on Giant Bomb for ARKHAM CITY. I think I may be interested in putting together a guide for the combat challenges. Have you ever played the challenges and not sure what you need to do to score big?

Cool. Now make it to number 1.

On an unrelated note, Arkham City was the game I was playing for the first time - 'til my computer fucked itself and I had to reinstall everything. Now I have to redownload it and every Steam game I had.

How do you know there are no guides on Giant Bomb about combat in Arkham City? If you know a way to browse guides on this website then please tell me. You should still make that guide in any case, as you're evidently quite experienced at fighting baddies in Batman: AC.

The fact that you're asking that question means that there's sometime wrong with guides here. Regardless, in order to find a guide on a game, you have to go to the game's page and choose Guides from the list on the left (Overview, Reviews, etc). Arkham City has no guide on GB right now.

@FoxxFireArt: That's pretty awesome man , specially using Catwoman I mean in the predator challenges I'd say she's harder to use than Batman or the other DLC characters because she doesn't have any usefull gadgets you have to move quickly wich gets harder on the later maps when you got guys with jamers and hostages.

I think he was being a bit sarcastic, considering that guides are up there with trivia in the "Site features that they pooped out early on and then never bothered to support". But whereas we got some pretty cool guides early on, there was never a time when the trivia section wasn't flooded with complete garbage.

@wmaustin55:

I actually like the 77th position, becasue I was born in 1977. It's a funny coincidence.

Congratulations, i was on the Banjo-Kazooie leaders boards for XBLA once, but I never chase leader boards scores. I play games for fun, not to beat others.

Congrats, never really cared for the challenge rooms in Arkham games. The only leader boards I tried to chase were Rock Band Drums on Expert scores. majority of the songs I usually got in the top 100, very few I got top 10 but those were the easy ones where releasing star power at certain points were top 10 or 1000

@Nightriff:

Once you understand the mechanics, the challenge rooms can be really fun.
