Hm.  I like Telltale.  I like Batman.  I don't think I'd like a Telltale Batman game.

It's a moot point, I'm almost certain I'm getting it anyways, but I like their more oddball choices like Fables and Borderlands.  And this coupled with a new Walking Dead too?  Eh, just not feeling the choices.  Heck, keep it D.C., go for the whole Justice League.

Ah well.  Going from Tales and its goofiness, looking forward to seeing how brooding this will be.

I'm curious if this is going to be its own story or is it just a re-telling of one of the graphic novels. Either way, I'm interested to see how this turns out.

I have the sneeking suspicion that this'll end up being a Gold/Silver-age type spiel...

Telltale Games has a huge opportunity with one of most knows figure in DC Entertainment. If they blow this, the internet will roast them alive.

First few details are out
Quote
Batman is the perfect character for the studio to explore in a Telltale series, giving the team the opportunity to dive deeper into the mind of the man behind the mask. Each night, Bruce Wayne chooses to change Gotham for the better. The team wants to explore what the consequences are of the player’s actions when decisions made as Bruce have a critical impact on his nightly crusade as Batman, and vice versa. Certain key situations will give the player the decision to approach a scene as Bruce or Batman, with consequences for both sides.
sounds good

Fresh interpretation of the universe set in current times, not tied to any existing iteration of Batman in games, film, or comics. Story will focus on Bruce and Batman, not an examination of the extended 'Bat-family,' (Robin, Nightwing, etc.) Fans can expect certain series staples such as Alfred Pennyworth, Vicki Vale, James Gordon, and Renee Montoya. Telltale is looking to keep the villains more tightly under wraps until closer to the premiere.
holy shit Renee Montaya! Awesome, it's such a fucking travesty that she's been completely forgotten, even after she took over as the new Question.

hopefully that part about the Batman family just means they're not getting a huge focus, not that they'll be completely ignored and/or non-existent in this universe!

Like some other Telltale series, the game will be landing at M (Mature 17+) rating, and the cinematic approach will feel more akin to an R-rated film.
kind of getting sick of the seemingly nonstop depictions of Batman as uberdark and gritty R-rated for mature adults, but if there's anyone who can pull it off, it's Telltale!

D'aww... I was still holding out hope for a campy Batman game but I guess that's a no-go anymore. Oh well. I'm still looking forward to hearing more as it comes out.

So Jmorph, which age group do you think the superhero who cripples criminals for life but is not ok with killing should be targeted toward?

You know what? You're right. Let's take a look back at some of Batman's edgiest edgelord edgy hexagon stories to get a real grasp of what Batman is really about.

Renee does exist in the new 52 you know. She's in the Bullock-Centric Detective comics right now. (maybe not anymore, behind like 6 months now)

TBH I don't see the bad part of this? Batman himself isn't R-rated, but most of his villains are?

On another note, I'd love to see some other villains here that are less known, specifically I would really like to see the Wrath but I know he'll never show up.

Wrath's gimmick has been somewhat diluted by Prometheus and NoBody, so I don't know if he makes it over them.

Were you really expecting them to go with this Batman considering how their only current game that's not rated M is Minecraft Story Mode? Even their Borderlands game is Rated M, I'm sure the Batman game is not going to overdo it though. If anything, their current rating will just give them more flexibility and less BS to care about when it comes to sticking to a lower rating.

Expecting? No.
Hoping that the same people who made witty and amusing games like Sam and Max could pull off a witty and amusing Batman game? Yes.
A man can dream.

TWD and Fables show they're capable of that. As long as they don't pull a Fables and make you have to replay the scenario multiple times to unlock stuff.
