Best Frenemies Forever – Batman: The Enemy Within’s final episode is live

The worst kept secret of Telltale's digital choose-your-own-adventures is that there's really not much choosing involved. While incidental details may change, the main thrust of the story doesn't. That may also be the case for the final episode in Telltale's well received second season of Batman adventures, but while your decisions may eventually lead roughly to the same end, it feels like every call carries…

Enter The Riddler’s torture chamber in Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within trailer

Feast your eyes on a new trailer for the Batman: The Enemy Within [official site], the second season of Telltale Games' trip to Gotham. I say feast, it might be more cover-and-squeal, because there's a particularly nasty sequence of The Riddler, the villain of choice this time around, torturing a man for information. You don't actually watch the gore but you see the choppy-choppy contraption and hear…

Cyberbam! Cyberbif! Batman: Arkham VR swinging to PC

Arkham VR will be on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive cybergoggles on April 25th, Warner Bros. announced today. It lets players see through Batman's Bateyes and engage in Batdetective work using…

Feature: Grapple everything

Have You Played… Batman?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Not Arkham Asylum, City, Knight or Origins. Just plain old Batman. Based on Tim Burton's film of the same name, Ocean Software's game was typical of licensed products of the time, taking key scenes from the film and turning them into tidy little…

Bap! Bonk! Zzonk! Telltale’s Batman Ep 3 Out Today

The third instalment of Telltale's episodic Batman [official site] is thunking, vronking, and zgruppping its way out this afternoon. This is the mid-way point of the season and, from what I've seen (I've not had a bash myself), it looks like the Batstory is potentially branching a bit from established Batcanon of Batbackbatstories. I'd been concerned that the Batburden of Bathistory might Batstifle Telltale's whole…

Zam! Kapow! Wonk! Telltale’s Batman Ep 2 On the 20th

"Bring back Joel Schumacher, all is forgiven," our Alec said in his Wot I Think of the first episode of Telltale's Batman series [official site]. Not a fan, that one. Found it a bit tedious, he did. Too familiar a Batstory. And I'm totally with him - I miss Joel Schumacher's Batman too. So look, here's the news: Episode 2 of Telltale's Batman will arrive…

Nah Nah Nah Nah, Really: Telltale’s Batman Ep 1 Is Out

SNIKT! That's the sound of Telltale cutting the ribbon to formally launch the first part of their episodic pants-over-trousers 'em up Batman: The Telltale Series [official site]. THWIP! That's the sound of someone in spandex sitting down in a leather chair to play another adventure story game in the typical Walking Dead-ish, Wolfamongus-y Telltale way. BAMF! That's me.

Telltale Adds Multiplayer Voting Mode To Future Games

Playing The Wolf Among Us with my wife was one of my favorite gaming experiences ever, so I'm pretty excited that Telltale has seen the potential and will be adding a new multiplayer mode with upcoming releases, starting with Batman, that will let participants vote during decisions to decide the outcome of the story.

Bam! Biff! Hi! Meet Telltale’s Batman In New Trailer

Your man Batman and his Batchums are leaping, diving, and chatting all over the place in the first in-game trailer for Batman: The Telltale Series [official site]. It comes alongside news that the first episode will launch on August 2nd. Until then, here, have a gander at Batso, Brucie, Vicki, Harvey and all the gang, see how they've come out in Telltale's episodic adventure game:

Bonk! Bang-eth! Telltale’s Batman Starts This Summer

Telltale will be BAM!ing, CRAAACK!ing, FLRBBBBB!ing, and ZGRUPPP!ing all up in your business this summer. That's when the episodic adventure Batman: The Telltale Series will kick off, the developers of Wolfamongus and The Walking Dead announced today. They're being a bit cagey about what your man Batman will be up to but, intriguingly, it sounds like Batman's friend Bruce Wayne - the billionaire playboy -…

Bruce Things Up A Little: Telltale’s Batman Detailed

Last year, when Adam first reported Telltale were developing an episodic Batman [official site] game, he said: "I really really really really really really really hope that 90% of the game has me playing as Bruce Wayne, trying to pick the most obnoxious behaviours possible so as to maintain my cover as the world’s shittiest billionaire playboy." While it's unclear if socialite sabotage will be…

Na Na Nah, Really: Rocket League Batmobile DLC Out

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice looks proper gash, doesn't it? Ooh it's so grim and gritty and boring, boring, boring. Yeah, go growl in the rain some more, you big babies. Still, those lot may be busy posing, but it seems the Batmobile's AI still has time for fun. Today it screeched onto the pitch in Rocket League [official site], joining all the other…

Batman: Arkham Knight – Warner Bros Offer Full Refunds For Steam PC Version

UPDATE: Green Man Gaming will also be honouring full refunds until the end of 2015. I've updated the article to reflect this. Warner Bros have announced they will offer a full refund to Steam owners of their troubled PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight [official site]. "Until the end of 2015, we will be offering a full refund on Batman: Arkham Knight PC, regardless of…

Batman – Arkham Knight review

There's been so much talk about Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] but one question has been left unanswered, at least round these parts. Is it any good? While the game was unavailable, there seemed little point in telling you Wot I Think but I did in fact play this latest Batventure in its entirety when it first released. I was mid-way through my introductory review…

Batman: Arkham Knight Mod Unlocks Other Characters

Okay, so the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] was so shoddy that Warner Bros have temporarily removed it from sale. That doesn't mean those of you playing despite the temperamental frame rate and occasional freeze can't enjoy a little something not available on console, namely, a mod which allows you to play as ten characters other than Batman, from Harley Quinn to…

Holy Framerates, Batman: Arkham Knight Is A Mess

Edit: Further in-house RPS testing is inconclusive. I've rolled back my Nvidia drivers to the previous release and now have a steady framerate (with Gameworks switched on and settings maxed) until I hit a Batmobile sequence, at which point I'm experiencing dips seemingly at random. Alec, on similar hardware, is using the latest drivers and having a better experience., though still has Batmobile problems. John…

Batman: Arkham Knight Out Today

Did you know that Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] is out today? You did? Then Warner Bros’ marketing budget has been vindicated. Did you you know that the early Steam reviews suggest that the PC port has serious bugs and performance issues? You did? Good. Adam is playing it now and should have more detail shortly [Update: here is more detail]. In the meantime, here's…
