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.

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 sections of game.

“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.

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.

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.
