Read the headline. There I said it. I rarely call anything the “absolute best.” Even less so in a world that’s populated by thousands of choices. But the Toca Life series of apps are the best. Though they’re not overtly educational, they give kids the largest amount of creativity and freedom to create their own worlds and characters.

Posted by | Mobile, News, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

Telltale’s episodic Batman adventure series will come to a close next week. Episode 5: City of Light launches digitally worldwide on December 13 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android.

“In Episode 5, the leader of the Children of Arkham prepares to execute the final act of a plan to destroy the Wayne family name, and the people closest to you are in their path of vengeance. Can Batman’s ultimate secret be kept – his very identity – when it is causing chaos and death in Gotham? The fate of the Wayne family and of the city itself rests on your choices. What will you do? How far will you go? Which mask will you wear?”

If you’ve been waiting until all episodes were released, now may be a good time to jump in. Batman – The Telltale Series Episode 1: Realm of Shadow is currently free to download for PC on Steam. The press release takes care to mention a performance patch  that has updated the game since its rocky launch earlier this year.

The adventure series is also available in physical format. The disc only includes the first episode, with a Season Pass that unlocks the other four via download.

Batman – The Telltale Series has mostly adhered to its one episode per month schedule since the launch of Episode 1 in August. Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham was released in November. In her review Ingrid felt “renewed enthusiasm for the series’ take on Gotham and the Dark Knight.”

Episode 5 is rated M for Mature for Violence, Blood and Gore, and Language.
