Wield the Infinity Gauntlet’s power in Fortnite’s Avengers crossover event

As if Fortnite Battle Royale smashing a comet into the map and wiping out an area wasn't fancy enough, it turns out that comet contained the Infinity Gauntlet from those there Marvel movies. A new solo event mode lets one player grab the Gauntlet and be transformed into Thanos himself (the chinny smurf from Avengers: Infinity War), wielding superpowers as other players try to take…

Marvel Heroes could be shut down early as Gazillion lets go of most of its staff

Despite relaunches, countless updates, a massive roster of superheroes and villains, and its recent move to consoles, Marvel Heroes is being shut down. Disney and developers Gazillion had announced last week that they were dissolving their partnership, and that servers would go quiet on December 31. Today, only a couple of days before Thanksgiving, staff were "let go", and Marvel Heroes may now cease to…

Marvel Heroes will shut down at the end of the year

Superhero Diablo-like Marvel Heroes never really had much of a chance. A terribly rushed launch to try and capture as much superhero hype as possible backfired, leaving what could have been a successful game with a mammoth struggle just to find its footing and catch up. This summer's relaunch as Marvel Heroes Omega (coinciding with the launch of the console version) was the last nail in the…

Black Panther, Monster Hunter & Sigma hit Marvel vs Capcom Infinite

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is a maddening game. At heart, it's a solid addition to the classic Capcom tag-team fighting series. A festival of explosions, colours, superheroic excess and Capcom's forgotten characters dusted off for a cameo. Unfortunately, it's also a mess of questionable design decisions and bizarre corner-cutting, letting down an otherwise excellent core experience. The latest of these questionable decisions is the choice…

Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy continues in Ep 2 today

The second episode of Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy arrives later today, and it seems it'll bring a fork in the spaceroad. A trailer heralding the launch gabs about choosing between a path digging into Rocket's path and one going into Gamora's family as the gang of spacefriends investigate a doohickey. Do you love your spacesister or your dogbrother more? I'm sure they'll remember that.…

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 shows off its supermen

Kam! Zonk! Wappo! Seeing as Marvel's own crossovers are usually over-serious affairs, both on paper and the silver screen, I'm glad that LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 [official site] is coming to smoosh supermen together in silly ways. The sequel to the game John called "bloody brilliant" will jump across space and time, visiting places and characters from Sakaar to Spider-Man 2099. Also it'll have…

Square Enix and Marvel, avenging in a tree

Yesterday, Square Enix announced that they'd be announcing something today, as that's how marketing works now. Yesterday, Marvel also announced that they'd be announcing something today, but no-one knew if they meant a film, a comic, a TV series or that Ike Perlmutter had ordered that Captain America was henceforth to be depicted as an outspoken climate change denier. Different companies announce different stuff on…

Feature: The Sentry, 2000

Modern Marvel Part 1: The Sentry

A journey through Modern Marvel, beginning in the period leading up to the Avengers Disassembled event and continuing until the heat death of the universe. Given the nature of comic books, the universe(s) may suffer multiple heat deaths. We'll go right up until the last one. It might make sense to begin my exposure to Marvel Comics with an origin story of some sort. Maybe…

Marvel At The Trailer For LEGO Marvel’s Avengers

As someone who grew up with LEGO blocks but did not otherwise continue their fascination into adulthood, the tie-in games have always been a source of gentle bewilderment. But I think the latest trailer for LEGO Marvel's Avengers might have finally sold me. Unfortunately it also brings word that the game has been delayed from this autumn to winter.

Feature: Marvel-less

Assemble: The Marvel Gaming Universe

First published as part of our Supporter Program, this feature explores the possibilities of a Marvel Gaming Universe. There is no mention of a Telltale episodic adventure. If you were to draw a Venn Diagram showing the overlap between superhero comic book fans and people who like to play computer games, it would look a lot like Pacman with his jaws wired shut. That makes…

Adventures Assemble: Marvel And Telltale

Oh. OH! Telltale are working with Marvel. Almost every time I mention a Telltale game, I go off on a tangent about the next license I'd like to see them working with. Sometimes I'll say Mad Men or Reservoir Dogs because I think that's funny and hip, sometimes I'll say Dr Who because that seems like a thing that actually might happen. Somehow, I've never…

Excelsior! Disney Infinity 2.0 Now On PC

Disney Infinity 2.0 would've been the stuff of dreams when I was a young'un: a game about Marvel superheroes where toys you buy actually become characters in the game. I'd point it out whenever I saw it in a shop window, try to get invited over by friends who had it, circle it in the Argos catalogue before Christmas, then receive something thoughtful but practical…
