shit, I totally forgot to play it today. I even replayed Episode 3 yesterday so Bruce took the blame at the end instead of Catwoman(I did copy my original save though so I've got both versions, I'll play both tomorrow probably).
Glad to hear people liked it though, looks like it beat the penultimate curse.
That opening fight against The Pact was fantastic. Telltale's choreography has gotten way better since Season 1, and it made the fight against Bane and Freeze feel really tense with lots of emotional highs and lows. I outright shouted "YES!" when John threw the batarang at Bane. Also, Telltale's new QTE system of "directing" the fights works really well, I'd love to see more of that in their other series.
I loved that Avesta finally returns in this episode, and that she knows Bruce's identity. I ship Bruce and Avesta far more than Bruce and Selina, and I tried to encourage her to quit the Agency and join the Bat-Family.
John's line of "when you walked in here, I honestly thought you came to check on me" broke my heart... john really does care about Bruce so much, and he's feeling so hurt and betrayed now...
They finally brought Alfred to the front of the story, and while he's still the weak spot of the story, him mistaking Bruce for Thomas was a pretty hefty emotional gut punch. It was great to see a teaser for Tiffany's Batgirl suit, and the gun moment I thought was pretty good.
I'm... not sure if I actually believe John, he clearly really does have problems... but even in seeing how later in the episode he dealt with Harley and the agents... I don't think he's violent, or at least, not doomed to be violent... I said I believed him, and while I'm not certain, I think I do.
That final confrontation on the bridge was amazing. Sided with John the whole way through, and while I was concerned for a moment here and there, I'm super excited to see John as an anti-hero vigilante in the final episode. Though, I do have a reservation about the Vigilante design teased in the choice screen... I'm not a huge fan.
Also, anyone know how many different versions of John there are? Just to, or?
Either way, can't wait for the finale, and I really hope this gets renewed for a third season. Unless Episode 5 fails completely, which I don't think it will, The Enemy Within had basically cemented it's place for me as a Top Tier Telltale Series, along with TWD S1, 400 Days, TWAU, and Tales from the Borderlands.
-Tiffany was reflective. The talk about guns and Batman's code was really enjoyable. -Alfred was disheartened. Somehow Bruce talking about his hate of guns made him disheartened? Uh, okay. That's weird. -Waller was livid. Eh, fuck her. -Avesta was grateful(?). Don't remember if that was the phrasing, but yeah, I let Avesta in completely. -John is a Vigilante. Not a huge fan of the design, but I'm glad he's going down the anti-hero route rather than a villain.
-Lowered the temperature for Freeze. I'm sympathetic to him. I think the reveal for The Pact's motives actually work really well to make them all sympathetic. -Trusted John to find Harley. I'm with him. All the way. -Belived John. Wasn't sure at first.... I think I am now. -Sided with John. He's my friend... I'm with him all the way.
Holy shit that's cool, slowly regaining hope for TWAU S2.
Maybe the restructuring was for the best? Hey you never know, they took a second season of a game I never played and now I really kind of want to play. I want Telltale to impress me and they really have.
Favorite games of all time
1: Bioshock Infinite, (along with Clash in the Clouds and Burial at Sea) Walking Dead (along with season 2)
You can completely avoid the choice of telling John you've been using him or not and the fight between John and Bruce if you believe him from the start. That's actually really impressive, I thought they'd railroad you into that fight no matter what.
bubbafightsunlimited: anyway long story short what happened the past 6 months: got dumped (sort of), had a very stressful first half of my second semester of senior year HS, then got accepted to harvard (yay)
