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”.

Walking Dead Season 3 Shuffling Onto PC In November

The third season of guts ‘n’ conversation adventure game, The Walking Dead [official site], will be coming out this November, Telltale has telltold the people of PAX. As we heard at E3, Clementine is making a return – older, wiser and probably much more killy. She’ll have another playable character alongside, the lesser-known Javier, who has “been through hell” and looks a bit like a knackered Zac Efron.

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.

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 Share New Walking Dead Screens & Details

A lot has changed since the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, and the development team has been taking some time to reflect on the course of the franchise as the release of Season 3 draws ever closer. Telltale Games’ Dennis Lenart and Melissa Hutchison (the voice of Clementine) took to the stage at San Diego Comic Con this week to share some new screenshots, a poster, and a few new tidbits on what the next chapter has in store.

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:

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.

Telltale’s Batman Swooping Down In August

Batman: The Telltale Series [official site] is finally getting a digital release date. Almost. Telltale have revealed that the first episode will launch sometime in August. We’ll have to wait until next week, though, to see the specific the date is revealed alongside a new trailer.

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.

Have You Played…The Wolf Among Us?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

The Wolf Among Us [official site] remains one of the only games my wife and I have bonded over. She just doesn’t really care for them, but that doesn’t stop me for always keeping an eye out for something that she might be willing to try. When I pitched The Wolf Among Us, I knew she’d bite (Boo – Ed). An urban fantasy game about fairy tale creatures? Who wouldn’t like that premise!

Minecraft: Story Mode Welcomes Celebrity YouTubers

Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] has brought in a load of famous YouTube people for its latest episode, which seems like something they should’ve done from the start. Growed-ups might coo over the sardonic comedy stylings of Patton Oswalt (I’ve enjoyed him in Lady Dynamite lately – good innit?) but kids would much rather adventure with Stampy Cat. Now they can meet him, and other beloved youngfolk with children’s TV presenter voices, in Episode 6: A Portal to Mystery.

The Walking Dead: Season 3 To Revisit Clem, Comics

The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site], a miniseries in Telltale’s episodic choose-your-own-disaster line, wraps up today with the release of its third episode. This closes a gap in the comic book story, a point where Michonne had vanished off for a few issues. And Telltale will be dipping into the comic book world a bit more, according to comic creator Robert Kirkman. He’s opened up a wee bit about Season Three of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, which is due this year, and will once again visit Clementine.

The Walking Dead: Michonne Gets Final Slice Next Week

Having never read the comic book series, I mostly know The Walking Dead’s Michonne as the samurai sword-wielding walker-whacker that’s played by Danai Gurira in the television series. Courtesy of Telltale’s point-and-click spin-off, though, I now also know her as the equally bad ass serial choice maker-er who’s about to embark on her third and final miniseries episode. Named “What We Deserve”, the last outing of The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] will launch on April 26.

Minecraft: Story Mode Ep 5 Decamps To Sky City

The fifth episode of the Telltale episodic adventure Minecraft: Story Mode [official site] is out now – it was due to be the final episode but Telltale are now going to do an extra three episodes as DLC not covered by the season pass. So a kind of epilogue, I guess? Or maybe a mini adventure? Or maybe we will watch a man patting trees down in order to make a table for a while?

The latter is probably why I am not working at Telltale as a story creator. ANYWAY. Episode 5 has a trailer:

Telltale Announce Extra Minecraft: Story Mode Episodes

Telltale today announced that the fifth episode of their storytelling spin-off will launch next Tuesday, March 29th, but also announced that it won’t be the final episode. Another three parts are coming later this year, Telltale now say, “post-season episodes” sold as DLC beyond the original five-episode season pass.

The Walking Dead: Michonne Ep. 2 Out In March

The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] Episode 2, called “Give No Shelter,” is coming out on March 29th. To announce the release, Telltale have done something slightly different than the usual trailer, something quite cool and also quite creepy. They’ve published one of those recaps that remind you of the choices you made in past episodes, basing it on what the majority of players decided to do.

It’s a bit like “Twitch plays”, except these are the decisions of our collective hivemind.

The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 1 Rising Today

Michonne’s in In Too Deep, and she’s trying to keep
Up above in her head instead of going under.
Cause she’s in In Too Deep, and she’s trying to keep
Up above in her head instead of going under.
Instead of going under.

Sometimes I secretly delight in writing horrendous posts, but I want you to know this one is intentional. If I’m having that song stuck in my head all day, you are too. Here’s a refresher. But the video following below is definitely a trailer celebrating the first episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] – named ‘In Too Deep’ – coming out today. It really is. Even I wouldn’t dunk Sum 41 on you again.
