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.

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 sentient cars playing fo- oh my god they’re going to make a Knight Rider at some point, aren’t they?

Batmobile Driving Into Rocket League Next Month

Rocket League [official site] hasn’t exactly shied away from DLC since its release last year, however this update, as superficial as it may be, might well be my favourite. Tied in with the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cinema release next month, The Bat’s iconic wheels will be whizzing into the Wasteland come March 8th.

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 how long you have played the product,” announced the company on the game’s Steam page. I’m flagging up the Steam stuff because it looks like this is an offer or an attempt at damage limitation which relies on Steam’s refund system.

Wot I Think: Batman – Arkham Knight

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 paragraph when Warner pulled the game from digital shelves. It’d be dishonest to pretend that my thinking about the game hasn’t changed in the months since – I enjoyed it much more in the moment than my memory allows me to believe – but on one point I still stand against the critical tide.

I love Rocksteady’s Batmobile.

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 Jim Gordon. Even if Harley Quinn: Arkham Knight doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.
