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.

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 »

Minecraft: Story Mode episode 1 free on Steam for a bit

You’re still ‘down with’ teenagers, of course you are. Them with their interest in skateboarding and Ant & Dec and their cool lingo like ‘cowabunga’, ‘necking’ and ‘jam that with a slice of ham’. You’ll impress all your teen relatives at the coming month of festivities, I’m sure. But what about the younger ones? Do preteens still calling good things ‘well Cbeebies’ and bad things ‘total Dipsy’? What do they even like? What will they think of you? What will they think of old, old you? It’s fine: they’re mostly into Minecraft and MDMA. I can help you with the former, at least. Look: the first episode of Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] is free for a bit.

The Walking Dead season 3 shambling towards Dec 20th

The third season of Telltale’s episodic The Walking Dead story-o-adventures will kick off on December 20th, the developers announced today. Clementine will return once more with new pals/future corpses and oh gosh is the world still full of wandering zombies? You’d think that rotten mob would’ve settled down by now. The third season continues Telltale’s wacky new policy of superlong names, bearing the official title The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier [official site]. Nailed it.

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 »

They are Groot: Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy?

It is the year 2801. A man weeps as he is forced to play Last of the Summer Wine: A Telltale Adventure. It is the last remaining hitherto unadapted license in the world. He sobs as he remembers Supermarket Sweep: A Telltale Adventure and the living hell that was Fifty Shades of Grey: A Telltale Adventure. A small scream looses his lips as he recalls the day his own husband became a Telltale Adventure. He knows it is only a matter of time before he, too, is adapted. If he can just make Last Of The Summer Wine: A Telltale Adventure – Episode 5: Compo Washes His Hat last as long as he can, he can defer his own terrible fate. Maybe three hours, maybe four. Then he, the last human, will become an episodic narrative adventure game.

If only he – and the rest of humanity – had seen this coming, back in those innocent days of 2016, when Guardians Of The Galaxy: A Telltale Adventure was leaked. 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.

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.

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.

Minecraft: Story Mode Ep 7 Jacking In Next Week

Ooh everyone’s jacking in nowadays. Even video game characters can’t resist slapping on their cybergoggles and, apparently, playing a blocky version of Dishonored. That’s what Jesse will be up to in Episode 7 of Minecraft: Story Mode [official site], which Telltale have announced will launch next Tuesday. With a sentient Redstone computer taking over everyone’s minds, it looks like Jesse is entering the cyberzone to brainjack its minions. Cybering within cybering – a very advanced technique.
