Alfred Challenge Maps

Like a lot of gamers out there I'm about to start playing Batman Arkham City. I pre-ordered mine from GameStop because, even though I am not typically a pre-order kind of guy I knew for sure I was going to buy it and love it so I figured I might as well get the freebie. GameStop's came with the Joker's Carnival Challenge Map and I like Joker better than Robin (Best Buy's pre-order came with 2 Robin challenge maps).

But I'm not here to discuss pre-ordering. And don't get me started about that BS unlockable Catwoman content that you have to buy the new game to get the one-time use code for. Like I mentioned to Fallguy I am more tolerant of that one-time pass crap for the online play on sports games that get some tiny incremental update each year (especially since I pretty much never buy those), but locking legitimate 1-player campaign content that is apparently a fairly integral part of a story-based game?  C'mon guys.  Oops - I started getting started after all.

No I just wanted to share with you the challenge map that you could have expected had you pre-ordered Arkham City from Bed Bath and Beyond. Shamelessly pilfered below from the fine gents at Dorkly - the Alfred Challenge Maps:

Dang it! I knew I should have gone with the Bed Bath & Beyond preorder.

For the record, the Catwoman DLC is not on the disc. It has to be DL from Xbox Live or PSN though it should have just been in the game in the first place.

These days it's all about fighting the used game market.

Ah - thanks for the clarification FG. For some reason I thought it was on the disc and just locked. Still feels like a thumb in the eye but at least they had the courtesy to wash their hands and clip their nails first.

...I had to go back and correct the post. The factual error was annoying me. :)
