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.

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.

Walking Dead Season 3 Gets New Trailer & Character

With their hands tucked into so many narrative pies these days, it’s almost easy to forget about the series that both put Telltale Games on the map and revitalised the otherwise faltering point and click genre. Having first been hinted at almost two years ago, The Walking Dead [official site] Season 3 now has its first teaser trailer and a new supporting character who goes by the name of Javier. What’ll they get up to, I hear you ask. Let’s have a little look, shall we?

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.

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.

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.

Our 100% Accurate Predictions About The Next Batch Of Licensed Telltale Games

Telltale’s resume has grown enormously over the last few years, spurred on by the success of their Walking Dead franchise. They’ve always had a number of franchises on their run at any time, from the mediocre Sam & Max to their truly dreadful Law & Order games, before finding some comedic feet with Strong Bad. But those were the olden days when their games were cartoonish point and click adventures. Now they are choose-your-own adventures with SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES. Currently we concurrently have The Wolf Among Us, Tales From The Borderlands, Game Of Thrones, Minecraft: Story Mode, and The Walking Dead. Recently they announced they’re adding Batman and a Marvel title. But I’ve uncovered even more, exclusively revealed below.
