    Alright, so I pwned Story Mode. Amazing ending. Love the
    Clayface twist. I had spoiled myself that the joker was gonna die, but that was a pleasant surprise.
    I found Nora- But I'm stupid and cant find my way back into the GCPD.

    Okin guys I just bought and started a few days ago the first one the GOTY edition. I did this because I heard you can incorporate your save file from Asylum to city and heck might as well go through the first one first.

    So far the game is just amazing on so many levels its ridicules. BUt I have one question.

    When the riddler comes in and gives you those riddles and other stuff you need to find are you able to go back and forth to the diffrent areas to come back and hunt for them later one? I know some stuff I see like a riddler throphy but I cant get to it due to electri fence ( in the gas room). I just dont want to miss anything so thats why I wonder if I should stay and head back and get evetyhign as I can or just continue with the main mission?

    edit: I know I can run back to diffrent rooms I am talking about areas like Arkam Island North that just opend so to say.
    thx for the help.

    The game gives you ample opportunities to go back and get stuff even after the main story is wrapped. Its more to do with what gadgets youve unlocked than how far along in the story you are, tho that can be mutually exclusive

    Don't worry about missing stuff like side missions and Riddler shit. The entire game is open forever once you beat the campaign.

    Just started playing and the game has yet to explain the whole radio transmission thing. Are those side quests? It isn't clear in their direction

    The radio signals are mostly used in the Riddler missions. A hostage gives you a signal to lock on to, and the Riddler gives you a riddle. And you can hear Scarecrow talking.

    The side missions are the Phone Booth killer (
    Zsasz
    ), the face stealer (
    Hush
    ), street crime, broken toys (
    Bane
    ), 'the assassin' (
    Deadshot
    ), Mystery watcher, and finding Freeze's wife. There's more, I'm sure.

    I think he's talking about the voices that say those numbers over and over again. Am I right?

    I am getting this game in a few days and I was wondering. Does anyone have ALL of the DLC for this game and what does the DLC DO for the game cause I plan to BUY THAT too. If anyone has the DLC let me know all about it before I spend any money.

    This game lacks a breadcrumb or some other smarter waypoint system or at least a giant beacon that says you've reached your destination.

    The bat signal shines over your waypoint.... you can see it in the sky, and then the gleam from it shine downwards from the sky.

    (Sorry if you were being sarcastic/joiking. Didn't know).

    Nah. I'm just being numb. Now that you've mentioned it I can see it. Wish there was an actual tool tip that pointed this out. Thanks though :)

    Well, first off there's Catwoman, which if you buy the game new, comes with the game. She's the only one you can use in the campaign maps. She plays very differently from Batman.

    Nightwing and Robin are also available, but they're only available in the challenge maps. You can't switch to them during the main story or anything. Both have their own fighting styles and I think they each have a unique challenge map.

    And then there's a challenge map pack. Just so you know, all maps can be played with all the characters.

    Oh, and then there's the skin packs which just alter how Batman looks (Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman have alternate skins packed with them).

    How's the 3D on this game? I just bought it for Xbox and a pair of Trioviz Inficolors.

    Okay, I'm pissed. How do you get past the third Riddler hostage? I can't glide through the last set of blades. I'm on my... oh, I don't know, 17th time?

    And the Riddler gets annoying after you've heard his taunt 50 times. And is this chick worth saving?
