Life is all about choices. Sometimes you make good choices; other times you make bad ones. No developer has hung their hat on this conceit more than the folks at Telltale Games. After successfully taking a whack at franchises under the Image and DC imprints, it only seemed like a matter of time before they completed the set and went after a Marvel property. Though far from my first choice of brands for them to explore, bringing Guardians of the Galaxy in-house made complete sense. But in a year that already has a new film on deck, can Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series manage to keep pace with its cinematic counterpart? Perfectly Mismatched On paper, Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot are the perfect cast for a standard Telltale game. They have tons of personality, are constantly in conflict, and most importantly, they have a hilarious dynamic as a group. If you take a look back through the studio’s history, for every earnestly dramatic game that they release, there’s almost always an equally lighthearted and hilarious game in the pipeline. Even as far back as 2006 when they released their first Sam & Max installment, it has READ…

I feel like I’ve just spent two hours pouring over the first issue of a Guardians of the Galaxy limited series while listening to classic rock. It’s a good feeling. Advertisement After sharpening its comic book storytelling technique with The Walking Dead, Fables and Batman, Telltale Games sets its sights on Marvel’s motley crew of spacefaring misfits. Guardians of the Galaxy is the perfect fodder for episodic adventure. While the series features plenty of sci-fi action, the exotic deep space setting mainly serves as the backdrop for an intergalactic dramedy about a group of unlikely friends trying to find their place in the universe. The first episode of Guardians of the Galaxy : The Telltale Series taps into the tenuous relationship between Peter “Star Lord” Quill, Rocket Raccoon, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora and Groot almost immediately. Well, after the initial dance number.

During a recent Ask Me Anything session over on Reddit, Telltale Games’ Job J. Stauffer reassured fans that they won’t have to wait too much for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier‘s upcoming episodes.
