Wot I Think: Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy

The cassette tape in Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy [official site] is called ‘Rad Mix’ instead of ‘Awesome Mix.’ A crueller man than I might observe that this is all we really need to know about Telltale’s not-based-on-the-film-and-yet-kinda-is spin on the adventures of Rocket, Groot and chums. I.e., that it really, really wants to be be just like what is arguably the most purely entertaining superhero film on the past decade, but it can’t quite pull it off.

I’m not that cruel. Not quite. Read the rest of this entry »

Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy biffing baddies in April

There’ll be five episodes in this season, with a trailer coming on Thursday, they say. Why is everyone bringing their trailers out on Thursday? Is this some kind of cool new cult? And if so, how do we join?

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.

Wot I Think: Batman – The Telltale Series Episode 1

I don’t know about you, but I’ve often wondered about just what it was that made Bruce Wayne become Batman. If only there was some sort of insight to be had into whatever tragic event caused Wayne to wage a war on crime. 77 years of Batman, thousands of comics, hundreds of cartoons, a dozen films and still his origin is entirely mysterious to us. If only there was some way to find out a) what makes Wayne hate crime so and b) how he feels about it.

Thank you, Batman – The Telltale Series, for finally putting us out of our misery.

Telltale Adds Multiplayer Voting Mode To Future Games

Playing The Wolf Among Us with my wife was one of my favorite gaming experiences ever, so I’m pretty excited that Telltale has seen the potential and will be adding a new multiplayer mode with upcoming releases, starting with Batman, that will let participants vote during decisions to decide the outcome of the story.

Walking Dead Season 3 Gets New Trailer & Character

With their hands tucked into so many narrative pies these days, it’s almost easy to forget about the series that both put Telltale Games on the map and revitalised the otherwise faltering point and click genre. Having first been hinted at almost two years ago, The Walking Dead [official site] Season 3 now has its first teaser trailer and a new supporting character who goes by the name of Javier. What’ll they get up to, I hear you ask. Let’s have a little look, shall we?
