It's for the whole season. The Telltale model is to pay full price to get in early, or pay progressively less as each new episode comes out but be forced to wait.
Back from the bellows of hell
Back from the back of a jail in a cell
Back from the common decrees to the common degree
Back to the streets from the East
Back to the belly of beast
Back to the place of my peace
Back to me holding my piece
Anything working disturbing that peace
Will certainly meet the deceased, capiche?

The detective scene and the plan-in-advance fight were also really cool, and I visibly reacted to the transformable Batmobile.

Fucking great game, though as before, I can't really judge it properly until I know what the choices actually mean.

God damn it I want more already.
If you're hosting your stuff on 4Shared, you might as well not release it at all.

So no one noticed Episode 3 came out?

Probably my favorite episode yet. This is a really fucking good series and I love the bold choices they're taking to set their version of the Batman canon apart. Their Harvey Dent is really progressing well as an interesting character, too.

Got roped in on the free Steam weekend a few weeks back, immediately bought the season

Maybe it's that I'm wise to the illusion of choice in TT games so I'm less concerned with making decisions that I'd personally make

Maybe it's that it's Batman and everybody knows (for instance) once Harvey Dent shows up he's not going to not be Two-Face and the only concern should be how you want that narrative to play out

Whatever the reason I personally think this is the best Batman game since Arkham City, and the narrative twists they make to the story are delightfully shocking


This is all a preface to say that next episode the inevitable is happening but I trust they'll put an interesting spin on it

Play it again, make different choices, and see how true that is.

Plays out with him having multiple personality disorder and fingering a coin

As any avid Batman fan knows the scars are ultimately inconsequential to Harvey being Two-Face although I'm sure they'll have them happen regardless

That's not what I saw from the alternate path youtube videos I watched, but I obviously didn't watch every changed scene. It looked to be taking him in a different, but still ultimately villainous direction.

edit: By the way, Episode 4 hits next week, on November 22.

They didn't have one for me either, I hope that doesn't mean a delay especially since they've been so punctual with this series. Or maybe the choices are so divergent at this point that any scene they showed would have potentially crashed the engine.


Anyway, I made the exact same choices as Jmorphman for much the same reasoning so I'll take this opportunity to laud this game for not paying too much attention (in game, anyway) to its special guest star. He's there, he fulfills his story role and he's out! Exactly what I hoped! I mean, I'm sure he'll be back next episode and is probably going to end up being the main plot thread in the next season, but whatever man!

I also want to praise this story for not falling into the trap of "Batman creates his own villains" and having them clearly be there with or without his input (literally in Harvey's case, from a narrative standpoint he's Two-Face whether he's got the scars or not).

No teaser here either. Wouldn't surprise me if ep5 was delayed. There was only like 3 weeks between 3 and 4 anyway, and I've got other things to play, I can easily wait till some time in January.

Episode 5:

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

As a side note, I experienced serious technical difficulties that marred my ability to appreciate this episode. The first scene had massive performance issues and a horrible framerate. In one of the later combat scenes, one of the goons didn't have a model, so existed only as a floating pair of eyeballs and set of teeth. Finally, in the final climactic battle, the game crashed right before the end.
