This week’s show tells a tale of two Batmen — plus a whole bunch of other Batmen in between. The success of the new family-friendly LEGO BATMAN MOVIE inspired us to go back to a very different earlier iteration of The Caped Crusader: Tim Burton’s 1989 series-starter BATMAN, which took the comic-book hero into darker realms than he’d previously occupied onscreen. In this half, we talk about how Burton and Michael Keaton’s vision for the character functions in the larger context of Batman adaptations over the years, as well as Burton’s subsequent career. Plus, some feedback from our last episodes.

Kotaku's Evan "Mr. Style" Narcisse is here to chat with Kirk and Jason about what we want to see next from former pachinko star Hideo Kojima. We also talk about Star Wars: The Force Gets Up -- NO SPOILERS! -- and the importance of video game preservation.
