In class today Chris suggested that Andre, Jayden and myself should have done a comic show. So, GameState was born!
With Episode 2 of Batman: The Telltale Series, ‘Children of Arkham’, being released on September 20th, we have decided to review it for a broadcast show.
So in addition to helping in the studio for another group, we wrote a brief script and practised it in front of camera.
When we were discussing off-script the conversation was very natural and funny! Very easy watching. However, there was definitely nerves when reading off the prompter.
Andre in particular had trouble during the first reading and stammered quite a lot. At one point he really couldn’t get the words out so, as I had been reading the prompter as well, I jumped in and helped him out until he knew what he was saying again.
I feel that was a good example about how we work as a group because it showed how easily we can talk and improvise, which is crucial for the type of show we are going for.
The style of our show will follow the same format as Good Game on ABC, a well-known gaming show that Andre and I watch religiously.
See below Good Game’s review of Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 1: ‘Realm of Shadows’.
Over the week break we are all going to replay Episode 1 and play Episode 2 of Batman: The Telltale Series and write our notes and reviews.
Should be good!
Update: After watching and analysing Good Game’s episode and review formats, I created a draft script/breakdown for our show that follows their formula.
