Arkham City brings back Riddler, adds interrogations

arkham city 2

Here's a quick riddle we whipped up: Batman asks you a question. Do you A) divulge as much information as possible, or B) keep getting punched in the face, all the while marveling at just how much the human body is capable of simultaneously crying and wetting itself?

It's ok. Take your time. We know; it's kind of a toughie.

"As with nearly every area of the game we're enhancing it. One example is the criminal database coupled with the new interrogation mechanic," game director Sefton Hill told PSM3 (via CVG).

"The Riddler continues to taunt the Dark Knight with mind-bending puzzles and exploration challenges, but the location of his biggest secrets are known only to him and people he's told. Rather than unlocking their locations using maps, Batman will be able to scan a gang of thugs to find a potential informant."

Obviously, though, interrogating someone who's unconscious and nursing multiple concussions is kind of difficult. The solution? Float like a butterfly and sting like a psychotic man in a bat suit until all his buddies are down for the count. After that, question away!

"This is the guy you need to question, but first you'll have to take down all the other gang members while sparing the one you want. That can be tough when Batman's in a seamless FreeFlow combo chain," Hill explained.

To punch, or not to punch? And people say videogames don't ask big questions.
