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

batman riddler

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 the saw blades and the screams and your imagination does the rest. Oh, and The Joker makes an appearance too. Read the rest of this entry »

Humble selling best Telltale games for 15 smackeroos

Oh boy, have we got sales news for you, vast gaping maw of collective consumerism. Isn’t it a beautiful day for buying things? The Humbler Bundlers have put together a bunch of Telltale’s better games for $15. Yes, everyone has probably already got their critically acclaimed zombies ‘n’ conversation games based on the Walking Dead. But has everybody got Batman? Has everybody got Game of Thrones? Has everybody got…

Telltale’s Batman ends next Batweek, first ep now free

Telltale Games will start ooga-chakaing next year with an episodic Guardians of the Galaxy game but they’ve a little BLURP!ing and ZLOTT!ing to finish up first. Telltale today announced that the fifth and final episode of their Batman [official site] will launch next Tuesday, December 13th. Will Bruce Wayne keep his friendship with Batman secret or will the whole world try to gatecrash their Batbrunches?

But first, Telltale have started giving the first episode away free to all and sundry as a demo. They’ve also patched the game up with big performance improvements. Read the rest of this entry »

Telltale’s Batman goes batty in Episode 4 on Tuesday

Episode 4 of Batman – The Telltale Series [official site] has Batman locked in Arkham Asylum, and my favorite Danny DeVito character has taken over Wayne Enterprises. In the meantime Harvey Dent and the Children of Arkham are at each other’s throats, and who knows who’s going to help Batman this time?! Biff! Zot! Read the rest of this entry »

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 ‘Batchoices and Batconsequences’ Batdealio, Batbut maybe Batthis will Batbe Bata Batinteresting Batone. Here, have a peek in this launch trailer for Episode 3: New World Order.

Telltale’s Batman Episode 3 Gets Two-Faced On The 25th

You’ll never guess what: Batman’s mate Harvey has gone a bit funny. He’s always fiddling with change in his pocket and staring intently at coins, but you’ll never see him buying a cup of tea, Cornetto, or can or Irn-Bru. You’ll even catch him muttering at coins, as if he’s crushing on Lady Liberty. Give over Harv, you ol’ horndog! Batman and his secret bestie Bruce Wayne will be figuring out how to broach this difficult subject with Harv in the third episode of Telltale’s episodic Batman [official site], which Telltale have announced will launch on October 25th.

Bat-Trailer For Bat-Telltale Episode Bat-2 Bat-Released

Batman – The Telltale Series, Episode Two: Children of Arkham [official site]. For me this game’s biggest problem is that the name hardly trips off the tongue. BTTSETCOA? Betsy Cola? Pepsi Cola? Anyway, Pepsi Cola arrives tomorrow and thus we have a trailer. It’s so Batman. So. Batman. I mean, there is corruption and Gotham and the DeadWaynes and hench dudes with guns and voice modulators monologuing to a literally captive audience.

“Brothers and sisters of Gotham, something something something”.

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 on September 20th and it will be named Children of Arkham. Now that’s out the way, we can focus on imagining Joel Schumacher’s Batman – The Telltale Series.

Steam Game Charts: You Know What

Last week’s best-sellers, today. Most of the recent mainstays are still hanging on in there, but it’s goodbye to Dead by Daylight (for now, at least). We do get two intriguing new entries, one glowering and one that is ALL THE FISH. Number one, meanwhile, is probably the number one you expected. That’s right: Limbo of the Lost is back-back-back!

Wot I Think: Batman – The Telltale Series Episode 1

I don’t know about you, but I’ve often wondered about just what it was that made Bruce Wayne become Batman. If only there was some sort of insight to be had into whatever tragic event caused Wayne to wage a war on crime. 77 years of Batman, thousands of comics, hundreds of cartoons, a dozen films and still his origin is entirely mysterious to us. If only there was some way to find out a) what makes Wayne hate crime so and b) how he feels about it.

Thank you, Batman – The Telltale Series, for finally putting us out of our misery.

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.

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 – will be almost as important to the story as The Dark Knight himself. Catwoman, Harvey Dent, Jim Gordon back in his Lieutenant days, and Vicki Vale are involved too.

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 possible at this stage, it does seem as though Adam’s wish will be granted as Telltale have now confirmed players will spend more time in control of the man behind the mask.
