After the minor letdown of the third episode of Batman: The Telltale Series, I felt the latest installment had a lot to do to redeem itself.  I needed to be impressed with not only the plot twists and turns, but also with how much control and agency I felt I had over the course of Batman’s experiences. Luckily, Guardian of Gotham did just that.

After the build-up of the first two episodes of BATMAN: The Telltale Series, it’s safe to say I was expecting some major plot developments and pivotal decision-making in the course of my playthrough of New World Order. While there were certainly important events, I found myself a bit disappointed with the decisions I was presented with, as well as frustrated by the outcomes that followed. Though I enjoyed this episode, I had a few negative feelings about it mixed in with all the positive ones.

I’m always excited about new Batman content, particularly the interactive kind, so I had both high hopes and deep fears about BATMAN: The Telltale Series. I want to see new and interesting content, but I also always want the Batman universe and the characters in it to be treated with respect and care. So far, BATMAN: The Telltale Series has lived up to my very high expectations in its first episode, Realm of Shadows. Read More

Shiny Preview: Platforming Without Killing

Posted by | Feature, PC, Xbox One | No Comments

I’m always excited to see games that feature robots in a starring role. Roboprotagonists, perhaps? Shiny delivers not only on my niche interest, but also on a fun, refreshingly non-violent 2D platforming adventure that can be enjoyed by a wide age-range of players.

In Shiny, you play as an adorable robot named Kramer 227 who is on a mission to save all of his robot friends who have been abandoned by the human race. To do so, Kramer 227 must navigate his way through dangerous mechanical locales in search of the energy needed to revive his friends. He does this by using a wide variety of powerups (including a jet pack, forcefield, and more) to tackle different types of obstacles and challenges. Additionally, Kramer 227 must manage his own energy in order to not only move about the world, but also to bring his friends to life.
