Another First 45?!? Ya damn right it is!
This time Paul and I play Gotham's Dynamic Duo, with LEGO Batman: The Video Game. Yes, I was Robin, and no, that doesn't make me any less of a man. So shut up....
At heart, The First 45 is a first impressions video. There's a catch, the impressions we offer are taken solely from the first 45 minutes that we spend playing a game. They say first impressions are the most important, and we feel it is the same with games. If you really aren't pulled into a game within the initial hour, chances are good you won't dig it after that.
There are no exceptions, this is exactly the beginning 45 minutes, from the time we boot up the game. What if the game pulls an MGS and starts with a 30 minute cutscene? That's too bad. We live in a fast pace society, and we don't have time to waste. We just want to play games.
