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. They’ll probably allude to it over Spacechristmas dinner then slowly build up to a meltdown during the Spacechristmas Doctor Who. Anyway! Have a look in the trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

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 your regular plain old Avengers and seed babies and rubbish burglars and all that rabble. The game is due on November 14th/17th but now, a week after its announcement, here’s a new trailer showing a load of supermen: Read the rest of this entry »

Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy cast revealed

Below you’ll find the first screenshots from what we must refer to as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series [official site], to avoid any possible confusion arising from the existence of The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: A James Gunn Sequel. In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, Groot is not a baby, whereas in The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: A James Gunn Sequel, Groot is a baby.

The cast list for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series has also been released and, oddly, Adam Harrington is playing Groot. You might remember that in The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1: A James Gunn Movie, Vin Diesel played Groot, which involved saying “Groot” over and over again. I’d have sample that. I bet Vin would love to be in another game, following Atari’s The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena: A Riddick Chronicle.

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 the same day all the time, but there was something even more needlessly vague than usual about these two, and so a few souls put two and two together and speculated that it could be same announcement – Square Enix publishing a Marvel game. Whaddaya know, true believers? They were right. Except it’s games, plural. And both Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal are on the case. Read the rest of this entry »
