Lack of Riddler

    ...why tho? :confused: It can't be THAT hard to implement him in this game. The one mission and the one box in the entire game really don't cut it. How about utilizing him similar to the HoF quest? Some quest could lead you through 2 different maps followed by a T3 duo in order to complete them. Of course styles and marks can be gained from completing them.

    But seriously, why the lack of Riddler?

    Riddler is retired per the mission you're speaking of. Also, he's sort of a bad knock-off of the Joker (I'm going to get flamed for that one).

    How about the lack of Man-Bat, or Ragman, or Nightshade, or the TITANS East? Or Lobo? Or Constantine?

    They have to get DC's consent to use their characters in certain ways. :p

    With the exception of Man-Bat, I could go the entire game without seeing any of those guys. What I really want to know, though, is where are Maxima and The Atom?!?!?

    There are many characters in the DC Universe. Everybody wants something different. They can't please everybody.

    Constantine makes an appearance in Sons of Trigon DLC.

    I am aware - but Constantine makes even less of an appearance than the Riddler does. Thanks, though. :)

    Ummmm how about the actual Joker.

    One of the most epic characters in DC Lore has one yes only one appearance in any of the content, but yet we get Circe crammed down our throats at every turn.

    Riddler deserves to be the Jigsaw of DCUO. I want him to rip leagues apart.

    I would agree, as I've always liked the Riddler and loved the treatment DC gave him in last year's Batman Year Zero; however, as pointed out, in this DC universe, he's retired from crime. That doesn't mean he couldn't change - it's just that that would need a full story line.

    I also agree that there are a lot of under-used (example: Constantine) or unused personalities (example: Man-bat/Kirk Langstrom) and I greedily want them all, but I realize that to keep story lines interesting there needs to be a strong focus on a limited set. What would be kind of interesting, now that DCUO is moving towards a more flexible story roll-out is to reflect current TV episode style.

    They should have 1 or 2 overarching story lines that span multiple episodes and episodes with one-off focus. So you have a set of episodes like they have with War of the Rings and in the middle, say, Lobo comes to earth, Count Vertigo runs amok, etc.

    An episode on Riddler would definitely sell.+1
  14. Aren Sul Committed Player

    I also want to clarify one point. When I say a one-off, the episode is actually a focus on that character. I know DCUO has given us side items like the Huntress solo, but I'm thinking an episode focused on that one hero or villain.

    The Riddler is an important character in Gotham. He isn't just 'a character and that's all.

    The lack of Riddler in this game, annoys me. A lot.

    I'm all for having more Riddler in the game as long as it doesn't involve collecting 200 of his trophies scattered around the game.

    I hate that part of that series.

    i'd like to see an adaptation of "Gods of Gotham" for an episode or two could be fun.

    you could follow the original story and say have the children of ares, eris, deimos and phobos seeking revenge on behalf of their defeated father ares. they possess three bat villains and adventures ensue.

    The "solo" content could include having the three possessed villains as t8 open world bounties in Gotham (think minotaur/judge sized versions).

    the duo could have one of ares kids as its end boss while the other two would be resserved for the 8 man instance.

    with this as a spring board it wouldn't be much further to stretch the imagination and have riddler as one of the possessed villains: his alert could have us thrust into a little maze requiring us to solve some traps and puzzles to get ahead.

    besides the seen little of in game riddler we could even extend this further to a couple of other villains and characters in the same boat: imagine a deimos possessed ambush bug or a eris driven brain and mr. mallah...
