New Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer Puts Old Game Tech To Good Use

If you’re old enough to have played Mattel’s classic handheld football game, you’ll get a kick out of this reference. The rest of you will have to settle for the other Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage in the movie’s latest trailer. Advertisement I still have one of those little bastards floating around somewhere, and you can buy working replicas of it all over the internet. I remember sitting in my grandmother’s living room playing it, wishing I had an Atari 2600. I don’t remember it being capable of detecting approaching intergalactic monsters, but it was pretty long ago. Star-Lord’s dad probably remembers the game too. He shows up at the end of this two minutes of space crazy. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, four days after I turn more than old enough to play Mattel handheld football.

Marvel Games Won't Be Tied to MCU, Which Is the Best Decision They Could Make

Courtesy Marvel Games Marvel Games isn’t forcing its developers to tie their video games into existing Marvel Cinematic Universe storylines. This might sound weird, given how interconnected the MCU has been over the past decade, but it’s actually a blessing in disguise. Advertisement Marvel Games creative director Bill Rosemann told IGN at DICE 2017 that the teams behind Marvel’s upcoming video game releases were granted the freedom to come up with their own storylines, and they won’t have to match release dates with upcoming films. These include: Spider-Man for PS4, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and The Avengers project from Square Enix. “It’s a bit like we’re saying, ‘Hey you’re the chef, you’re going to make this meal. Here’s all of the ingredients. You pick the ingredients that you like and make a new meal,’” Rosemann said. “We want all of our games to tell an original, all new story.” Advertisement This is not an accident. Even though the MCU has been, on average, more successful than the DCEU, Marvel has largely sucked in the video games department. Many READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

6 Titles We Want From Marvel and Square Enix’s Multi-Game Partnership

Death Stranding, God of War, Spider-Man PS4…E3 2016 proved to be one for the ages, as Sony rolled out trailer after trailer showcasing many of the games headed to PlayStation 4 in the not-so-distant future. For all of the excitement generated by Kratos, Atreus, and Norman Reedus clutching onto his (?) stillborn foetus, it was really the unveiling of Insomniac’s licensed Spidey game that instilled a renewed sense of hope in Marvel’s gaming output. The as-yet-untitled Spider-Man PS4 is by no means a one-off, either; immediately after E3, Marvel’s Vice President of Games Jay Ong asked the question: “Is [Spider-Man] a signal of things to come? Oh, yes. Absolutely. And we can’t wait to tell the world about it.” Matching AAA properities with AAA developers is something fans have been crying out for for generations, and after persevering through an era of rushed, downright terrible video game tie-ins, Marvel Games is beginning to turn a corner. Gone are the days when the comic book giant was beholden to a standing agreement with Activision, one which resulted in a string of licensed titles of diminishing returns. In one corner, Insomniac Games has been tasked with reintroducing everyone’s favorite friendly neighbourhood READ…


Guardians of the Galaxy via Eidos Montreal?

Rumours Abound Regarding Eidos Montreal’s Upcoming Projects A rumour is making the rounds involving Eidos Montreal thanks to their recent comments on the Square / Marvel teamup. According to a report from Wccftech, the Canadian company is splitting their time between Deus Ex, Tomb Raider, and Guardians of the Galaxy. This all comes from an article via Eurogamer lamenting the lack of new Deus Ex content in the wake of these announcements. It’s a real shame we won’t be seeing any new Deus Ex for some time, although it’s unclear how this ties to a GotG project. In fact, the quote from Eidos Montreal which led to this is rather light on relevant branding. Eidos responded as follows: “While we are still working on expanding the Deus Ex Universe, along with creating new content and updates for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, we’re also devoting our talents towards working with Crystal Dynamics and Marvel on The Avengers project.” Nowhere in the Eurogamer piece is there any mention of Guardians of the Galaxy. In addition, the evidence suggesting Eidos is working on more Tomb Raider releases (to be fair, it would be weird if they weren’t) is still that same stolen look at…

Sources: Eidos Working On Guardians of the Galaxy Game, Future of Deus Ex Murky

We may be waiting a long time for the next big Deus Ex game. The developers of the iconic franchise have moved on to other big franchises, according to sources speaking both to Kotaku and other outlets. Sources say Eidos Montreal has cancelled a planned sequel to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which came out last year. Advertisement Eidos Montreal, a Square Enix-owned Canadian studio best known for developing Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the recently released Mankind Divided, is now working on two major games. One of those games is Shadow of the Tomb Raider, as we confirmed a few months ago after the name leaked on a subway. The other, sources say, is a game based on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. That’ll be the second entry in Square Enix’s new partnership with Marvel, which the two companies announced last Thursday. Eidos Montreal is also helping out on The Avengers, which is helmed by Crystal Dynamics. Advertisement From what we hear, Square Enix doesn’t plan to greenlight another Deus Ex game at Eidos Montreal for quite some time, unless Mankind Divided suddenly becomes more profitable. Mankind Divided was a large investment for the Japanese publisher, taking nearly five years to…


Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series Gets New Info Revealed About Storyline

GameStop Lists Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy for April 2017

[embedded content] Announced at The Game Awards last month, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series could be releasing in April 2017, if a GameStop listing is to be believed. According to the product listing, the Guardians of the Galaxy Season Pass Disc will release on April 25 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Since Telltale sometimes releases the first episode digitally before the full Season Pass Disc (The Walking Dead: A New Frontier premiered in December and the retail release is out in February), it’s possible Episode 1 of Guardians of the Galaxy will be available in late March or early April through digital stores. GameStop also included the description for Guardians of the Galaxy in their listing: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series delivers a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes, the rag-tag band of outlaws who go by the names Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of the Guardians has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands.
