I downloaded episode one yesterday, but didn't play it because I worked a double and came home and slept for 13 hours. Now I'm about to go back to work on the night shift for one more night, and then I'll play it this weekend.

I watched Cinemassacre's Talk About Games for this, Felt like they were expecting to get actual gameplay similar to the Arkham games for the Batman sections.

They did release a patch today, but people are still saying it hasn't fixed all of their issues.

Our machine here is well above the minimum specs; I'm just annoyed I have to wait to spend that sweet, sweet birthday steam credit. Hoping they fix it soon, anyway.


That's crazy. Did the change the engine or something? Why would they have issues with this game on PC when all the other ones were pretty smooth.

Of course.

I've read (though I have no confirmation) that this is the first game using a new engine, so it's experiencing a lot of issues as it "settles" so to speak.

Spoiler free: Episode one was pretty damn cool. Lots of mixed time between Batman and Bruce Wayne to make your choices to solidify your integrity and/or notoriety. The QTEs are a bit muddled at times, but not bad enough to ruin the combat experiences. Also, combat is incredibly like Heavy Rain, IMO.

You have the choice to be Good Batman or Bad Batman and I'm making all of the bad choices, but only concerning the handling of criminals. I'm seeing a lot of Frank Miller's All Star Batman when I "take it too far" with my actions, and I have to admit that I love it.

Can't wait for future episodes.

That's good to hear. I was worried at first the game would stay linear and you couldn't change Batman's character at all.

Not surprised the PC version wouldn't work properly. First Arkham Origins, then Arkham Knight, and now the Telltale Series. WB really doesn't like the platform for some reason if MKX is anything to go by.

It goes back to Arkham City, sadly.

At least they eventually fixed Arkham Knight. Now they just have to fix this one.

Still it should at least be fixed up before a release date, If they need more time with the PC version give another release date.

It'd be a perfect world if they did, but alas...

Anyway, I bought this, and am downloading now. Let's see how it goes...

Just finished episode 1... Have to admit, I really liked it. I liked having so many choices, and how they seemed to actually matter in terms of the plot. I look forward to playing it again and seeing if there's much difference.

Though I'll probably play again anyway, just to see what would have happened had I not missed some of the QTEs.

I enjoyed it. The only thing I'm dreading is having to wait between episodes. It could lose some serious momentum between now and then, but otherwise I liked it. Nice story, and I enjoyed being able to play Bruce and Batman differently.

You should. It's not the traditional Batman game, and it definitely won't feel like it since everyones been used to the Arkham series for the last 6 years, and then Injustice.

But TellTale did it right. The Batman portions feel as much like Batman as they can in the gameplay setting. They even showcase how analytical he is and how he does nothing without a plan. Even showcases how physically superior he is to normal goons. And playing as Bruce is a refreshing change of pace. And there's a lot of ways things can go based on your choices.

If you like TellTale, and you like Batman, you should like this.

One thing I noticed that, even with it being the kind of game it is, I felt like I had more control in playing Batman the way I wanted to than I had in even the Arkham games.

And it made me realise just how badly I've been missing out on being able to play a superhero RPG.
