Today I played the game for about forty minutes. (Normal)

While I had already started playing, I seemed to have misplaced the save file and so I just started over from the beginning. (Normal)

Having beaten the main game, I next sought to complete Riddler's Challenge.

Sneak up on the enemy

20140211:
Today I finished up Riddler's Challenge:
:Found the last teeth in Arkham Island, West.
:Found the last two teeth in Arkham Island, East.
:Tried looking through all of Arkham Mansion for the last three. USEDFAQ: Found the last three in Arkham Mansion (Warden's Office).

The Scarecrow
:Found the remaining six secrets in Penitentiary. They're easy to find due to their marked locations on the map. It then becomes a matter of figuring out how to get to them.
:Found the last teeth in Medical Facility.
:Found the last secret in Caves.

Land combos
All I had left were the Challenges. I started playing a couple:
Intensive Treatment 8935 (One Bat)
Silent Knight 4:16.02 (Three Bats)
Sewer Bat 4700 (Zero Bats)
Survival Tactics 4:16.64 (Three Bats)
Poison Ivy

Yesterday, after I was done playing, I looked up a YouTube video and watched someone playing one of the fights. His/her method involved starting the fight with bat claw followed by stun. I think this automatically gives two variations. I didn't pay attention to what else goes on, but simply adding those two at the beginning has upped my scores.

Glide through the air.
Shock and Awe 7200 (Zero Bats)
Record Breaker 2:40.62 (Three Bats)
Rumble in the Jungle 10870 (One Bat)
Invisible Predator 6:46.46 (Three Bats)
: Blah. A grate take down isn't satisfying like the analog found in Mark of the Ninja. It's just popping out of a grate and executing a silent take down.

The Joker
Intensive Treatment (Extreme) 10440 (One Bat)
Silent Knight (Extreme) 1:38.48 (Three Bats)
: At the start, run around the corner to the ladder and go up and place a bomb. Drop down across the way and set bomb under glass. Drop down into grates, walk to center, and then up to place last bomb...

Commissioner Gordon.
:Detonate when all three are in place. I didn't experiment with trying to get an earlier kill. But after the kill, come up and wait for the two guys to check the body. Zip across to kill both. Finally, get the last guy by hooking to a gargoyle and gliding down.
