Our videos of Telltale's Batman

Batman - The Telltale Series was released last week and since we were sent a PC code to prepare a bunch of videos for you guys, here is some direct feed footage captured in the very beginning of this first episod. As you'll see, the new engine is a pretty nice addition, though don't expect a major leap from the previous games of the studio. Enough talk, enjoy the videos of the promising debut of Telltale's version of thte Caped Crusader.

This is performing horrifically on consoles based on the DF article. Its sub HD on xbox 1 and not a ton better on PS4....Telltale need to slow down with their releases and actually hire people who know what they're doing and actually care. Lol.

Not a lot better on PC. What went wrong, Telltale? It doesn't even look THAT better compared to their previous games. Outdated engine, maybe? Or programmers' incompetence?

You're not using your intel GPU, are you?

Nah those programmers are haunted by the ghosts of the Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation 3 dev tools.

When the PC version is in trouble you have to wonder out loud...it's not like they didn't make tons of money on Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and now Batman...

I'm so upset about the state of this game. This game is actually using their NEW engine that was supposed to fix all the problems their older games had. But the same performance issues, same controller bugs on PC... I will not continue to give Telltale my money.

Can't fix the horrid work of animators.

From what they were saying, the animation was due to the engine itself. Just the way the engine handled animation in general and especially transitions. They said this new engine (before they ever showed anything of Batman) would allow them to make much more natural looking animations. But, it all looks the same. And has the same types of ridiculous bugs and performance issues as every Telltale game of the last few years. I'd be especially pissed if I were a console player of these titles. Those resolutions and frame rates are absolutely unacceptable for a game that will wind up being ported to iOS... At least if I decide to play it (hopefully) my future 1080 will be able to brute force it to run well.

About the game


What's up?

    MrWhite I've heard OLED crushes black levels too much, so much that mid tone details get lost. (3 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: OLED is king for watching movies, and especially if you sit off-center (17 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (20 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (23 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (23 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (23 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (1 Day ago)
