What the fuck happened to Anna Sorkin? She hasn't retired from acting as far as I'm aware.

>>77913838

Her voice is too old and it causes her too much strain doing Harley.

They should've gone with Hynden Walch.
>>
>>77913838
She retired. If you listen to her Fatman on Batman interview you can hear that her voice is pretty much done for Harley
>>

Oh fuck Walch would have been amazing. Tara Strong's just comes out too grating for whatever reason.
>>
>You and 100% of players didn't kill the Joker.

>>
Sauce? Is this real life?
>>
>>77913885

Walch did a perfect Harley voice in The Batman and Assault on Arkham., It was a perfect blend of Arleen Sorkin's original inspiration and her own tweaks to make it unique and it felt so much more natural for it. Like someone was actually using it as a speaking voice and not trying to be as annoying as humanly possible.

That's disappointing. If DC and or Marvel are to make VNs it shouldn't be 3D and shouldn't look like a Telltale game.

That's kind of telltale games in general. The only choices that "matter" are binary and even then they only matter until the next episode when your choice gets negated and forced into a bottleneck anyway.

It doesn't matter if you save someone in TWD, they're dead by he middle of the next episode anyway.
>>
>>77914515
Which is why it's a shit game. They shouldn't be offering you options if they mean nothing.
>>
>>77914622
It's not about that. Sure they still died but it's about how the group remaining sees you because of the choices you made.
>>
>>77914624
I'd argue that the Walking Dead is a fine enough game, but every single TellTale game does this shit, making it incredibly obvious at this point.

in TWD, you cared about the choices because you thought they might matter, but after doing it again and again, you only become apathetic as the strings become more and more visible.
>>
>>77914713
In Wolf Among Us how the group saw you could have been drastically different.

>>77914691
This. It's not about who lives or dies but if you tried to save them or not.

>>
>>77913664
What's frustrating is I LOVE the concept of a playable movie/show, where you just pick what your character says/does.

The problem is that Telltale doesn't make the stories nearly interactive enough.

I want Obsidian to do a game like this. Alpha Protocol was also made on a small budget, but had a wildly divergent plot based on your dialogue choices. And that wasn't even the core gameplay - Cut out all the combat/stealth segments and it's a much better version of a TellTale game.

Spoiler Alert

>>
>>77914985
How much effort can it possibly take to make 1 hour long little QTE movies every couple months? They make the story up as they go along and the choices don't mean anything. None of the bank they make goes to a new engine or improving graphics so they can have like 12 dev teams pumping out this mediocre garbage and collecting 20-30 bucks across basically every platform games are on.

Superman has a shit load of weaknesses. Magic, kryptonite, super-sonic noises, and notably, being PUNCHED REALLY HARD.

>>
>>77915177
>Do your choices actually matter in that one?

Sort of and not really. You have to form a team in the final episode, and there's requirements for each recruit which is where your choices come into play. While this is cool, Telltale deliberately ignores requirements if you end up not having enough people available. I enjoyed the hell out of it though and it's probably their best game.

LiS had this too, but it was sort of okay, because the entire game was kind of leading up to an obvious conclusion, but it still feels weird to have all that choice and get to the end and see a X OR Y at the ever end.

It is, and it's incredibly obvious that that is the ending the game wants you to pick.

I have no idea why they included a second ending at all when it was blatantly clear that there was only one right choice.

Maybe it's because people expect there to be multiple endings when your game has choices at all, but I think the game would have been better with just one ending.

That or have a bunch that equally seem possible, instead of one right one and one obviously selfish one.

>>77916161
It's a basis of predictability, notably when it came to both GoT and Walking dead where your choices didn't affect the end much as the other protagonists who became determinants (can be killed or lost early in the game, but if saved, will be killed or lost later for the purpose of making the future chapters in development easier.)

>>
>>77916161
That's pretty much where Wolf among us and Borderlands came in strong. Unlike the other death-filled games, the two simply followed a single plot full of original characters that wouldn't affect their canon counterparts as much. GoT suffered from this because they liked sneaking in characters from the television series and their arcs, knowing full well you can't do jack squat to any of them, but they can rape your choices to the ground. Either way the illusion of choice only gives you a different flavor for every path you choose. It's a matter of how they do it.
>>
I get that the railroading and limited ending in the choice games is a budget matter, but why don't they ever do the Dragon Age thing?

Slides and text may not be exciting, but they allow for tons of variables and can be really satisfying.
>>
>>77916355
Some visual novels do the job better. The problem is the episode-based structures that they do.

take heavy rain for example
you have 4 different characters and any one of them can die over the course of the game, and that changes how everything at the climax happens.

you can fail to find the killer, you can make the wrong choices, you can end the game where nobody wins.

I find telltale less engaging because none of that happens.
>>
>>77916315
So it's less that the choices didn't have consequences, and more that it was implemented far too blatantly in some of the games.

Yes. Borderlands did a few jokes about that, and at best also suffered from that but overall the fact that the choices only made a difference in dialogue, cosmetic and end game team mates knowing full well that the game only has one storyline to follow was why it was one of the stronger games that telltales had released. It focused on humor, metahumor, lore exploration and character development without going all [SAVE RHYS] [SAVE FIONA] and then making either of them determinant characters.

Plus Borderlands had kickass intros.

Alpha Protocol's my favorite shitty game. I got it a few years after it was released, so it seemed less buggy.

Neat, I'll make sure to pirate it when it comes out
>>
>>77916407
Loved that
Although the killer's identity and the fact that it doesn't change based on what you do was a huge mark against the game for me.
It's absolutely worth a playthough, but that right there kinda kills any replayability.

Does Telltale still make point and click adventures?
The only game of their's I've played is Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, and I've heard they don't make them like that anymore. Is this true?
>>
>>77916533
one of the people who made it had said when it came out that you should only play it once.

Weird thing for them to say, but for the sake of the narrative they want you to make your decision and then live with the consequences, no redos and what ifs.

You spend the second episode dodging your family because they are about to disown you for being a now outed lesbian. You spend the rest as an alcoholic.

Final episode makes all those "choice based games that don't matter by the end because the ending is set in stone/decided at the end" seem like Fallout 2 because no matter what you do with using your detective skills to track down the villain, the Bat beats you to the collar and steals your glory anticlimatically.
>>
>>77914296
I liked how when the final episode came out even big gaming sites talked about the ending sucking but the overall game being really good.
Then one of the devs took to twitter to whine about them calling it "the worst game of the year."

You can try to kill the guy, or even just take him in yourself, but Batman just shuts you down in that condescending way he seems to address cops who aren't Gordon.

>>77916161

>He didn't beat Talia.
He did, sure Kathy killed her but he still pretty much beat her.
>After Knightfall he was no longer Batman.
And after Death of Superman the guy wasn't even alive anymore and a whole city got nuked in his abscence, your point?
>And he only beat Bane once after that, then steered clear (until the reboot).
He only beat Bane once because he only needed to beat him once.

He beat Ra's, just because the League didn't trust him anymore doesn't mean he lost.

Telltale is fucking garbage. Non-interactive puzzleless QTE fests with no choices making any difference ever.

It'd been done better before, though.

Obsidian are a great example. Their games are usually low-budget and rushed, and have actual (buggy) gameplay outside of the choose-your-dialogue scenes, but have far more divergent stories.

You spend part of the game as the Commissioner having to serve under a corrupt mayor running a corrupt police force and dealing with all of Gotham's political BS. You must attend to the grieving families of the many cops who will die during the course of the game.

I think Millar's comics are more suited for Telltale what-ifs. Superior, Kick-Ass makes good themes.

There's one, ONE Telltale character other than Jane or Kenny that could possibly die but doesn't if you choose to save while still being alive and that's the once prince from the Wolf Among Us. Since TWAU only had one episode it's more than likely that he'll end up dying anyway, just like Kenny and Jane. Hell, Season 2 of the Walking Dead had 3 other characters that could die and all three of them ended up dying even after you saved them. Even if they did magically end up surviving the most they'll get to be is a background character.

Honestly, I have no idea what to expect from future projects, could be good or bad.
>>
>>77913785
If that happens it'll be pretty annoying to be honest. Like in LA Noire where you'd know exactly whodunnit and how to prove it but the game would make you go through the motions in a very specific way or fail.

I wonder what the second one (Until Dawn I mean since apparently they are / will be working on something) will be about

and I hope that they work on how the endings play out. Everything else was pretty neat on how differently things can play out and how the characters will tell each other shit if you had decided to actually fucking investigate, but the ending was kind of lame where its just the same police interview. I'd like to see some drastically different endings and interactions. An epilogue too)

Then Telltale are hacks that are afraid to develop characters. The comic they aren't afraid to take iconic moments from (hacking off a bitch's arm while sneaking through a herd for example) has lots of characters that live for years and years.

I honestly feel thats what telltale games really need though. The ability to fail but let the story carry on.

Like I know Heavy Rain gets a bad wrap but one of the little things I liked about it was being able to fuck something up and have the story continue on and acknowledge that fuck up.

Not doing a good enough job on the drive in traffic shit, or accusing the shithead police commissioner.
>>
>>77915150
I really think that's more the fault of the whole episodic nature of their games. Like each chapter has to pick up where the previous left off right, but that means you have to make sure each chapter ends in such a way that its easy to continue off of. and the whole structure of the story is more like 5 strings with 5 knots in them. sure there are choices that change the events in one episode (I let Cassius Go and he saves Vaughn, where as someone else eggs Athena on to kill him and Vaughn is still around in episode 4 for one more bro-moment before disappearing). But it ends the same Vaughn is gone for episode 4 and you go into space.

I feel that a Batman telltale game could really benefit from re-introducing the more traditional adventure game elements. something like the Devil's Toybox style of "psychic powers" being used to solve puzzels except with BatGadgets.

I'd only be interested in this if it's something like Gotham Central, and you play somebody from the Gotham Police Department.

I feel like we're forgetting their current Minecraft thing, which i haven't heard hide nor hair about.

But otherwise yeah I really liked Borderlands as well. I feel like the big key to longevity with the Telltale formula might be experimenting with the Narrative and gameplay. Borderlands let you switch perspectives which really lets the pacing stay up there, where as a lot of the previous games left you locked into one.

Gotham Central would be great as either an HBO adaptation or Taletell game. Too bad they never will do it and the closest we'll get is Gotham.
