The second series of Telltale Games Batman is a welcome return to my screen with the titular character carrying on a refreshing and different pacing to the Dark Knight that we are used to. The return to Telltale Games is welcome and the choices carried out within the game’s first series will have a last effect on the dark days to come in the games second series, which is titled The Enemy Within.
If you have read any of my articles on Telltale Games before then you will know I am a huge fan of the interactive story with hard choices and the consequences that you have to live with. The games low level of interactivity with the actual story has been a point of contention with some players which is understandable if you are wanting something a little more hands on. The Batman series allows you to interact a little more with environments and get into the roles of both Batman and Bruce Wayne, allowing for 2 different sides of the same coin. The game delivers a engrossing narrative that gives players a 2-3 hour burst of gameplay, which can be enjoyed at the time or you can wait until the full series is over then play all the episodes (roughly 10 hour play time) all at once.

NHL games usually have a hardcore following in the UK, where Ice Hockey is not one of the most popular sports but it does have more of a cult status around the country. The NHL is big money business in the U.S of A and with that means a lot of lucrative deals and avenues in which they can gain revenue from more people. In step EA Sports and here we have a yearly iteration of another sports franchise, I will say at this moment I have not played a NHL game ever to my knowledge and I am in no way insulting or making fun of anyone who does play them. I would like to go on record and say of all sports I feel Ice Hockey would be one that I would watch if I were to watch any sport.
