@Acheron: You most not be read the current Batman comics because he's just as bad as another rogue, hell he planed the whole Hush event from behind the scenes putting him right up there with Bane and Ra's Al Ghul.

People seem to be forgetting that The Riddler was doing Jigsaw-esque stuff long before Jigsaw was a thing. Sure they've taken some of the Saw aesthetic, but the idea of putting people in life-threatening situations in order to test them or Batman is definitely a Riddler thing.

exactly go watch the 90s Batman cartoons, the old tv show and cartoons, the movies, and the comics multiple villains did the jigsaw thing i.e putting people in life threatening situations in order test batman or screw with the people. Hell every super villain does this in any superhero comic pretty much (how many time has louis lane been in a life threatening situations to mess with superman?

Hell I'll even say god damn Bowser did the jigsaw thing before jigsaw in Super Mario by capturing Princess and having mario run a gauntlet to get to her LOL

True but you have to admit the looks of the traps and the tone of the trailer are very reminiscent of Jigsaw. Especially the part where he looks at multiple grimy, flickering monitors.

As someone who's only seen the movies(90s-present) I cant say I have a great idea of who the Riddler is but he definately wasn't portrayed as being this sadistic in Arkam Asylum. He was just kind of a douche..

    
 The Riddler was a insane psychopath in Arkham Asylum.

@OldGuy: You are correct, it was 1939. My mistake for not double checking my dates.

@OneManX: I wasn't implying that his motivations weren't legitimate, just pointing out his issue.

Really excited for this, I didn't play the first one until a year after release. Won't make that mistake again.

Awesome!
The Riddler finally joins in properly the game! :D

@nightfang: I have read the recent comics. The Riddler has been reformed for several years and has put his skills to use as a good-guy detective, with only very recent events implying a return to crime. I've also read Hush. His part in that was that he figured out Batman's identity and was using this knowledge to ruin him. Like I said, deeply involved in criminal activity, but not insane and not a murderer. 
 
There have been past interpretations of the character where he is a murderous psychopath (e.g. Jim Carey). I am not sure how writers arrive on this take of the Riddler besides the need to amp-up the threat that he poses. But really, the comic book Riddler isn't sadistic or a Jigsaw-type murderer, but a calculating and selfish criminal mastermind.

Looks good, though I much prefer game-play trailers.

This game looks amazing, but i am concern that they may be trying to do too much. I mean, it has Two-Face, Cat Woman, the Joker, Riddler, and Penguin (there are more, but I can't remember who... oh, Zee... that one dude, I forget his name).  Well, hopefully they are able to balance out all the Villains (and Cat-Woman) in the story so it doesn't become a cluster f*&k. 
 
 
Did you play the first game? 
There were tons of people in there, it wasn't just the joker, it's going to be about the same content-wise

I did, and i am insulted that you tried to dismiss my concerns with such a petty move.  
 
You sir, have insulted my honor, *pulls out white glove, Slaps Xeirus across his face with the white glove* I demand satisfaction. I will duel you in the courtyard, you may pick the weapon.

@Zor: The first one had a bunch of villains and it turned out pretty well GOTY 2011!
Well, some of them did. If i remember right there was The Joker, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, Zaez (whatever his name is), and Killer Croc. Scarecrow was great (really enjoyed his boss fights), Poison Ivy was good, i enjoyed her area of the game, but they were largely forgettable, Zaez was in it for about 10 seconds, and Croc felt generic. While it was fun to go against The Joker as the main villain, it didn't really feel like his personality came through. He could have easily been replace with another guy, and it would have been kind of the same experience. So yeah, I am hoping for more Scarecrow experiences and less Croc

The Joker's personality didn't come though? That game was all Joker! You couldn't have changed the opposing villain at all.
