Video Game Review: Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 2

October 6, 2017 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 2
Daddy’s Little Monster has arrived.

Please note that since each episode of Batman: The Enemy Within features the same graphics engine and control setup, those elements will not be repeated in our reviews for the final four episodes. To read our complete thoughts on that, refer to our review of The Enigma.

The first episode of Telltale’s second Batman season ended with the surprise death of the Riddler after establishing him as a major threat. In the newest episode, The Pact, Telltale continues to twist established Batman lore and tropes, perhaps more so than anything since the revelation of the Wayne family in the first season.

The biggest part about this stems from a conscious design choice in the episode — almost all of it takes place with you playing as Bruce rather than Batman. In fact, having Bruce put into all sorts of unorthodox and uncomfortable situations without the ability to punch his way out creates an underlying tension not often found in the series.

From there, many established roles become inverted, creating dramatic tension in ways that haven’t previously been seen in the series. In particular, the Joker (AKA John Doe) has gone from being a pale imitation to a fresh take on the character and his relationship with Bruce.

Without spoiling anything, the most interesting thing about this episode is the way power roles and character evolution with the Rogue’s Gallery are all mixed up, creating entirely new relationship dynamics and raising the stakes by throwing Bruce in the middle of it. The result is one of the best Telltale episodes in recent memory, all leading to an ending surprise that sets up an exciting next episode.

OVERALL (4.5/5)

A stellar mix of tension, character and stakes, Batman: The Enemy Within — The Pact successfully presents situations with no easy solutions and unexpected twists.

Video Game Review: NBA 2k18

September 28, 2017 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
It’s unfortunate that the game modes underwhelm because the actual representation of basketball has never been better. Players handle differently, size and momentum affect body contact animations, and defenses and offenses play more realistically. It’s exceptionally well done.

Video Game Review: Minecraft: Story Mode – Season Two, Episode 3

September 27, 2017 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
After running afoul of the Admin once again at the end of Episode 2, Jesse was banished to some sort of prison along with Radar, Jack and, for some reason, Nurm (more on that shortly). After being introduced to the Warden, Jesse and Jack make a break for it. It’s a short trip, however, as the surrounding area is like a maze infested with monsters.

Video Game Review: Tokyo Dark

September 25, 2017 | by Brian Gunn | Comments Comments Off
Tokyo Dark stars Detective Ito as a young cop recently returned to active duty after a standoff went wrong a few months back. Her troubles start right away when her partner (and boyfriend) is taken hostage, seemingly by a woman Ito had killed in said standoff — and so right off the bat it lets players know this isn’t going to be a typical detective game.
