Normally I%26rsquo;m the type of player that rarely completes all the side missions in a game; just finishing the main campaign is enough for me. But that wasn%26rsquo;t the case in Batman: Arkham Asylum, as the hunt to unlock all the Riddler%26rsquo;s mysteries was so engrossing that it kept me playing B:AA long after the Joker was defeated. Now Arkham City is just a few months away and it looks like for the sequel Edward Nigma has really stepped up his game. Take a look at the hot-off-the-presses trailer:

This vision of the Riddler matches with what we first saw during GDCand heard in an interview tape, as the villain you once underestimated has placed people in Saw-like death traps that Bats must locate and disarm. Of course the trailer is also filled with what seem to be coded messages for viewers to figure out just as Batman does in-game. Are you smart enough to decode them? And if you%26rsquo;re so smart, why aren%26rsquo;t you rich?
