Good news: We’re getting a second season of The Wolf Among Us.
Bad news: We’re not getting a third season of Batman: The Telltale Series.
If there is any consolation prize, we are getting something sweet for Batman fans. Telltale Games is releasing The Batman The Telltale Series as a bundle called the Shadow Edition. This new edition will have both seasons and episodes for one whole price. To make this feel like a Frank Miller comic book, the Shadow Mode will change the game’s art into a “noir” background. The game will look like reading an edgy comic like Sin City. If you already own the games, you can download the DLC as a standalone for a cheap price.
Batman: Arkham City sends players soaring into Arkham City – a heavily fortified sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City. Batman Arkham City introduces a brand-new story that draws together an all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as new and enhanced gameplay features.

Welcome collector’s! Once again I want to share with you my Pop Funko collection. As a collector fanatic, I can’t resist on getting exclusive figures and Pop’s based on my favorite series and genre.
26. Eto (Tokyo Ghoul) from Fall Convention Exclusive 2018
I don’t usually say no exclusive figures and it’s good thing Hot Topic gave shoppers a discount coupon. This was something I been meaning to get since it was exclusive and I did like watching Tokyo Ghoul. I plan to read more of the manga and then watch the anime up to Tokyo Ghoul:re. I don’t know much about this character except that I seen her in Tokyo Ghoul Square Root A (Tokyo Ghoul √2 or season 2). She is a mysterious character who is part of a organization called Aogiri Tree where Kaneki joins them after getting kidnapped by Jason. I do like her design and have her identity concealed.
27. Riku (Kingdom Hearts III)
We waited this long for Kingdom Hearts III. We had spinoffs and Remix collections for the past years and now with KH3 here, fans were eager to get this game. In this new game, the characters have changed and got not only powers but also new fashion and keyblades. Riku’s appearance has been updated since Kingdom Hearts II and he wears clothing strikingly resembling Noctis from Final Fantasy XV. He also has a new keyblade that looks like a car key. guess the next game will have Riku driving a car as a promotion to becoming a keyblade master.
28. (28a, 28b, 28c). Batman Pocket Pops set
Three is better than one. Unlike the previous figures I collected, these three figures are really small. I got this set from Amazon and with some credit I used, I only spent about $5. I will be honest, I got this because I heard you can also get these figures in the deluxe Blu-Ray edition of the Batman: Animated Series collection. The deluxe edition comes with all the episodes in Blu-Ray DVD including the two movies The Mask of Phantasm and SubZero and it has three small Pocket Pops of Batman, Joker and Harley Quinn. To avoid spending a fortune, I decided to buy the figures separately and I will settle with getting the collection in standard format.
29. Pikachu (Pokemon) Target exclusive
I don’t usually shop at Target because I have problems with their online shopping. Alternatively, I used eBay instead. I like Pikachu as a kid and I still do. A Pop version of Pikachu looks really cute. I am hoping to get the Bulbasaur figure next.
What do you guys think of these figures?
Remember the post I wrote about how DC and Warner Bros was going to make a Batman Beyond movie to compete against Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse? Well, I got bad news for you. It’s not happening.
Found in IGN, film reporter Umberto Gonzalez who works with The Wrap sent out a tweet that the Batman Beyond animated movie is not in development. In his tweet, he mentions that DC and Warner Bros commented that any rumors about a possible Batman Beyond movie was false.
All hopes for a Batman Beyond movie is dead.
Enter the fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne in this dark and violent new story from the award-winning creators of The Walking Dead – A Telltale Games Series, and discover the powerful and far-reaching consequences of your choices as the Dark Knight. As Batman, you’ll encounter classic allies and adversaries, and as Bruce, you’ll learn the true meaning of what it means to be the man behind the cowl. Batman – The Telltale Series comes to retail as a Season Pass Disc, which includes Episode One, and grants access to the remaining four episodes in the season as they become available to download.
No Spoilers here!
Revealed a while back, the people who worked on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures, Afro Samurai and Gurren Lagann came together and created an anime adaptation of Batman called Batman Ninja. Announced today at Anime News Network, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released an English Dub trailer and the cast for this anime movie. The movie will be set for physical release on May 8th for a Blu-Ray/DVD combo, DVD, Blu-Ray Steelbook case. However, the movie is available early on April 24th if you want it digital. The movie will also have Japanese Dub if you prefer to watch it in Japanese. Here is the cast for the movie:
Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies – including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family – to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.
Sidenote: I feel like this movie should have been titled as Batman Samurai instead since with the armor, he looks like a samurai. I can’t believe that the voice of Ignis from Final Fantasy XV will be Alfred!
Thank God it’s Friday! Today is another episode of Friday Funny hosted by yours truly, Matthew of Matt-in-the-Hat. This maybe too early but since we are most likely be busy on Monday, I wanted to say Happy (Early) Halloween. Halloween is on Monday! Isn’t that scary? Anyway, I decided to say this early because I can imagine that we all have plans on that day whether it’s hosting a Halloween party or just going trick-or-treating for candy or even binging on horror films. If you plan to be active at night, be careful of crazy people. You might come across muggers that would want to rob you or creepy clowns that will do things I don’t even want to imagine. If you are brave to go outside, bring out your weapons for self-defense. Besides Halloween being the news, I also have other news!
First, if you still play Pokemon Go, it’s been announced that there is an event going from Oct 26- November 1 that will be doubling candy for capturing Pokemon and spooky Pokemon like Ghastly will appear on your phone. Second, Nintendo unveiled the new console called the Nintendo Switch. With this new device, players can play new games at home or anywhere by switching the controller/device. In other words, it’s a home console and portable device! Based on the trailers, get ready for third party games! Unfortunately, you can’t play Wii U or 3DS games on it. Last but not least, next week I will be really busy because at work, we are having a Peak week. In that week, I will be working overtime and stowing stuff at Amazon because there are many customers who will be online shopping. While you shop, I work to help you buy! You’re welcome. XD
Enough talk! Let’s get spooky!! BOO!!!
To end this post, here are some creepy but funny videos. Don’t watch at night. Lol 😉
I hope you all have a safe night at Halloween!
