Riddle me this, Funky Student. How did you get so funky.

You will know: that The Riddler is better than you.

Huh, after this and all the hanging jokes, maybe they should have hired a real writer for this instead of just Tom from QA.

How do you make good, non-cheesy dialogue for a guy who wears a giant green question mark on his coat? The Riddler has always been kind of cheesy. He was in the last game too.

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.

It's a video game based off Batman. I suggest you look elsewhere if you want quality writing.

Dini is credited as writing the script. He wrote Batman: the Animated Series in the 90s and is considered one of the best in the Batman creatives. Personally, I love his style. The villains are meant to be hokey, not to mention Batman himself. The comic is a hold over from the 50s where the main character dresses like a giant bat, has mommy & daddy issues, and drives a car named the Batmobile.

I'm just glad this Riddler is more Jigsaw and less Jim Carey.

@buhssuht This is my favorite version of Riddler, the more twisted version. A super smart loser with an inferiority complex and a psychotic need for attention.

Exactly. The Animated Series was fantastic, and I'm glad they're taking more from TAS and less from Nolan's series (though I love those movies).

Same way they made the guy who wears clown makeup good and non-cheesy.  Good acting and writing.

@EpicReflex: It's the same from Asylum and the animated show so I don't see how that works.It's kind of far in to say his voice is bad it's like saying Two-Face sounds bad.Have you played Asylum or watch the show?

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

To be fair... his parents were straight shot right in front of him... I think he should get a pass for those issues.

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.

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

Nice looking trailer, like all the schematic backgrounds floating around though that kinda reminds me of the opening credits to Re-Animator.

Wow, Riddler killing people is completely against his character, he has never, ever done it in the comics. Unlike the rest of the Batman rogues gallery, both he and the Penguin were perfectly sane, though deeply involved in criminal activity. Riddler was more of a bank robber with a huge ego who liked toying with the authorities. Now he's jigsaw... that's almost as stupid as giving the Penguin a monacle made out of the bottom of a bottle, or extending the campus of a small asylum to a large populated urban area instead of, say, the countryside.

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 wasnt portrayed as being this sadistic in Arkam Asylum. He was just kind of a douche..
