CHEATCC’S 2016 HOLIDAY BUYER’S GUIDE

Telltale Batman Series

We’ve seen Batman games where we control the caped crusader and help him explore environments and directly take down enemies. We've discovered the joy of bat-cape gliding. We’ve even received a VR experience that puts us inside his cowl. But it took Telltale Games to give us Batman: The Telltale Series, an adventure game that lets us follow both Bruce Wayne and Batman.

In this five episode point-and-click series, which is available on consoles, computers, and even mobile devices, we interact with iconic characters and handle situations as both a billionaire playboy and caped crusader. As an example, the first episode follows Batman after he acquires a hard drive stolen from Mayor Hill and attempts to discover what’s on it and why Carmine Falcone wanted it, while Bruce Wayne is attempting to help Harvey Dent get elected and understand if the Wayne and Falcone families are associated with one another. One of the major decisions is to determine if it’s Bruce or Batman who provides important information to a notable source to expose a criminal act.
