Win the Batman: Arkham City Strategy Guide and app!

Let’s face it … Batman: Arkham City and The Riddler plan to make it really hard on you.  If Arkham Asylum were any clue, the riddles you’ll have to find in Arkham City will be extremely challenging.  And the riddles won’t be the only thing the game will throw at you.  I know you might not like to have your hand held throughout the quest to complete the game but Brady Games is at least making it some quality hand holding.

Thanks to my friends at Brady Games I not only have two of the Official Strategy Guides for Batman: Arkham City to give away but I also have two redeem codes for the Official Batman: Arkham City Map App on iPhone (iOS devices).  You can proceed to jump up and down now!

The strategy guide gives you a complete walk-through of the game along with some great collectible items and the map app gives you locations of more than 350 collectibles, riddles, and an interactive tracking system all in the palm of your hand.  It’s the perfect combo to cover all of Arkham City inch by inch.

I won’t tell you to use the guide initially but once you complete the game it’ll be awesome having these two things to help you go back and discover things you might have missed.  I’ll even give you the location of one of The Riddler’s little gems below.

And hey, there’s nothing wrong with sitting down from the start and following the guide and app so you complete it all during the first playthrough.  It’s up to you.  But let’s get down to the goodies shall we!

How do I win?

Simple.  Leave a comment, email me or message me on Xbox LIVE who your favorite villain or hero is in Batman: Arkham City … and why.  Is it Nightwing, Penguin, Catwoman, Hugo Strange, Batman, Robin, The Joker … who is it?

I’ll pick four winners and announce them on Friday, October 28.  Winners will be posted here so be sure to check back for your name and confirm.  If you don’t confirm, then I’ll have to pick additional winners.

Good luck!

  1. The Joker cause Mark Hamill is the man LOL

    I LOVE Catwoman though. Will she marry me?

  2. iOS strategy guide? Count me in!!

    Joker, hands down… He has the funniest smart ass comments I’ve heard in video games… whenever he speaks, its one of those “hahahaha…. oh man that’s messed up” responses that he gets from me… But Harley Quinn gets 2nd for me cuz they made her dead sexy 2 times in a row…

  3. i agree on the Harley thing lol

  4. Batman because of his wonderful toys.

  5. Going to have to say Robin,

    He faced the same tragedy as Bruce and was taken under the wing. Became Robin to get revenge, and became sidekick to Batman.
    Got funny one liners in the comics and cartoon series.

    Then grown up he becomes Nightwing, total awesomeness.

  6. Batman – he is the best!

  7. I have to say Catwoman because she’s so damn sexy!

  8. definitely can’t argue with that Tacoma lol

  9. Harley cause she’s an emotional mess and will do anything for mr j. She’s awesome

  10. Joker, mark hamil is the man

  11. The riddler, bc only him and the science guy can wear question marks all over their suits not be called a dork.

  12. The joker because he was played so well in The Dark Knight.

  13. My favorite is Catwoman b/c she is a hot cat. 2nd is Harley she is one whooped woman.

  14. Batman, hands down no question. Mainly because he has the best twitter account.!/God_Damn_Batman

  15. Well, I’m a professional henchman, so I have a unique perspective.

    Working for the Riddler is a pain. He always finishes the crosswords first. Ugh.

    Mr. Freeze’s lair is WAY TOO COLD, but his ice puns make up for it.

    Clock King would nag your head off if you were even a tenth of second too early or too late. No thanks.

    Scarecrow offered the best health benefits, so I’m with him now. However, I think he may just be using us as test experiments. :(

  16. For favourite villain, I’d probably have to say Mr. Freeze, as he is one of the villains who has a reason to commit crimes that one can actually sympathise with.
    His backstory is brilliant and emotional, and gives leeway for writers to make him out as just a villain or as an anti-hero driven by love for his wife Nora. Plus, the boss battle with him is insanely well-designed, requiring both skill and mental proficiency in thinking up new ways of attacking him to defeat.

    Also, *minor spoiler*

    The optional sidequest to rescue Nora is awesome, both because it adds depth to Mr. Freeze’s character, and because it’s something that Batman would actually do. Huge thumbs up to Rocksteady for making it a quest.


  17. well said Brooks :)

  18. I like the Riddler a lot, because I feel like he’s the character that hits home the most. It happens all the time where there’s some brilliant kid who grows up with unappreciative parents and ends up going down the wrong road or not reaching his or her true potential. Riddler was definitely that, his father always put him down and told him he wasn’t good enough when in reality… or rather in fiction…he was a genius.

  19. I’m gonna have to go with the Riddler.
    Batman has some of the best villains so it’s hard to really pick one over another, but I always liked the puzzle solving and word play aspect that came along with the Riddler.

  20. the Riddler is indeed awesome :)

  21. Batman, who doesn’t like the Dark Knight. Considering he’s only using tech to defeat all baddies, he is more capable than a lot of heroes who has superpowers on their side.

  22. Batman is my favorite hero because he’s more complex than a vigilante and has the cool tech and fighting skills to take down the baddies.

  23. got plenty of emails in opting for the Catwoman cover lol … i’ll ask Brady which they’re sending ..

  24. My favorite villian is Poison Ivy for purely superficial reasons. I’m partial to redheads. [shrugs]

  25. redheads are win! lol

  26. My favorite is Batman because he’s got the Batmobile and his Batarangs.
