Whether you’re obsessed with collecting toys to life figures or you think it’s all a silly money trap aimed at kids, one fact is undeniable. The toys to life genre has exploded in the last few years, raking in billions of dollars for Activision’s Skylanders series alone. Now we have LEGO, Nintendo, and Disney all capitalizing on this unique toy-game craze.

Telltale has branched out into the Borderlands, Game of Thrones, and even Minecraft universes. Nothing should surprise anyone when it comes to Telltale Games announcing a new licensed game, but Batman actually was a big surprise. Now we all wonder what Telltale could have in store for the Dark Knight. Read More
