Video Games Review: Batman: The Enemy Within – Ep. 1 (PC, 2017) sets a grim, complex tone for Season 2

I am still waiting for my dream Batman game to materialise. This non-existent game would essentially be LA Noire and the Batman IP draped over it, steeped in the World’s Greatest Detective side of the character moreso than the Caped Crusader. I am fully aware that it would probably sell about four copies. Throughout Batman: The Telltale Series, and here again in the first episode of its sequel, Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series, it feels at times like that’s the Batman game Telltale would quite like to make too.

After much begging and cursing Niantic have finally given us their biggest announcement since the mega successful Pokemon Go app debuted in July of last year. That announcement is Generation 2, and we’re talking an actual Gen 2 release, not a bunch of baby Pokemon you can only hatch from eggs.
