The performance of the game is really bad only through the "what happened previously on" as it's
struggling to use the right scenes based on my previous choices. After that it's pretty smooth

It was far more stable for me this time. Episode 2 crashed 4 times on me but this didn't do that once.

Just the usual frame-rate drops whenever he uses the fancy holographic display table thing in the batcave.

But a good episode all round. Loved the twist at the end. Totally unexpected.

Tried out Episode 1 of this (it's free to try on PC) the controller commands are a broken mess, that aside everything else ran fine. Is the resolution still borked on consoles?

And done :)

Bit of an odd episode - all building, but felt like there needed to be a few more scenes at the end to really set up a finale.

Bit of rushed escalation it felt like throughout - needed either more time/content to play it out, or at least make clearer the passage of time (given it seems to have been like 2 days in game going to martial law feels off)

Pretty good though - but just missed a cliff hanger set up (or similar) - the ending is really abrupt and not in a "tense way" more in a "wait, it's over?" way.

Engine only really struggled at one point (in a lift :D) - which then led to a loading screen killing momentum at a key moment. That's poor

Also had some sound issues during combat - it's hard to feel invested in the fight when it feels so weightless due to lack of impact sounds

Plot talk and choices!

Shame they went with Joker in there - although nice he's a "John Doe". Interesting and different portayal as well. Player knowledge though will guide most people actions around him rather than his own actions in the game which is a shame. Generally engaged with him, but on my terms. Didn't use the Key. Didn't agree favours and tried to break up the fight.

In the end Joker's inclusion seemed to slow everything down. He had little baring on the various conflicts and characters I've spent 3 episodes getting involved in - depsite being "in the know" - and spending time developing him just delayed me from being able to be involved in the story I was invested in. It's a really odd pacing killing opening act.

Rammed the barricade.

Told Selina I understood and let her go

Was nice to the kid and calm (half expecting him to be Robin). That crime scene was brutal though.

Went to Harvey as Batman (Trying to cash in the good will he had from saving his face). Didn't overly work though but stayed firm and "good" throughout.

Told Jim he was trusted, to try and pull the good bits of GCPD together and undermine Dent's militia.

Went after Penguin - tech is more important. Him breaking down and limiting my ability, plus enchancing his own is far more of a threat than to my house...plus Alfred can just hide in the cave. Plus the manor's burnt down or been blow up countless times in comics/films...it'll be fine


No "next time" bit...

So the general consensus this is good, yeah? I see the season pass is £15.99 which is tempting.

Good, annoyingly close to great.

It's the freshest Batman tale in years - that takes familiar elements and remixes them in genuinely new and interesting ways. It's also a good story about both Bruce Wayne and Batman - and the real person their both masks for.

It's still a TellTale game - with the limited gameplay and quirks that means, although it does some differen newer bits it's all really QTE and very simple puzzle solving - but if you're at all into Batman stories yeah get it.

Then we can talk about it :wub:

Edit - Just realised you made the bloody thread :slol: And you didn't buy it? Also (there's only one episode left) they've stuck to a monthly release schedule - which won't really matter for you - but it's kept up story momentum as a result.

I got excited by the announcement :slol:

I just knew the season pass would drop eventually and prefer playing this over a few days instead of months. My patience has paid off 8-)

Your tight-fisted money pinching ways.

I've been enjoying it for months.

So what's the general consensus on this then?
Is it good? How the performance? Better on PC? PS4? PS4 Pro? Xbox One?

Good - eps 2 and 3 have been great, 1 and 4 ok

Some performance issues on PS4 - not sure if others are better.

It's a TellTale game through and through. You'll enjoy this as much as you've enjoyed their other games. Or slightly more or less depending on how much you like Batman.

Tomorrow on EU
Wtf

The release schedule on this on PSN has been ridiculous. Sometimes as advertised others a day or two later

Finally caught up to speed with episodes 2-4. Despite Telltale's woeful engine and some occasionally ropey dialogue, I'm really loving it. They make great use of the source material, particularly in some of the choices you make. I love how much focus is put on the Bruce Wayne side of the character, something games have never been able to explore before. As much as I wish Telltale would improve in certain area, they've still got some Walking Dead S1 magic in 'em :)

I'd agree with this, would go 2>>3>4>>1. Episode 1 always seems to be the weakest in these kinds of games though.

As for performance, on PC it's gotten better with every episode, though still not where I'd like it to be. The game also doesn't seem to downsample when selecting higher resolutions, grr.

Weirdly, eps 1-2 would plummet in frame rate every time a screen was shown in the environment (batcomputer/background TV etc), but it seems to have been fixed in 3-4.
