‘Tell Gamonda to call me!’ – Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy, 2017

Hello everyone! I’m back! I enjoyed my randomly gifted weekend off from our resident Man on the Silver Mountain. It gave me enough time to begin writing again! I’ve really enjoyed getting back to my stories. Oh – and to play a lot of video games… don’t judge me, okay?

Our daring team! – Guardians of the Galaxy, Telltale, 2017

This weeks review is (almost) a sequel to my previous review about Telltale’s Batman. While not of the same branding, it’s almost Marvel’s answer to it. Firstly, I want to point out that – like Batman- this is Telltale’s Guardians, not the movies. All the characters are based on the comics, not the movies. And the movies aren’t mentioned. Remember, no movies here. Okay – now that’s been set straight, here we go!

Let’s get in the mood for it with some ELO, which just so happens to be the theme song for this game!

Spaaaaaaaace! – Guardians of the Galaxy, Telltale, 2017

Anyway, back to the review! –
The plot centers on the Guardians finding an artifact of great power, the ability to bring people back from the dead. Each Guardian individually covets this power (for spoiler reasons). Some want to get rid of it completely some want to use it to bring back a loved one. I’ll let you play the game to know who wants what. But I can let you know that the Guardians must protect it from the malicious Kree Hala the Accuser who wants it for herself. The Kree were all killed out, and her ship is the last of their kind. She wants her son back. She wants her people back. It’s an understandable want. Except she’ll kill to get it.

Gamora and Nebula look much more like their comic counterparts – Guardians of the Galaxy, Telltale, 2017

The writing for this game was superb. I loved that it wasn’t even about the films; I was able to feel like I was playing each and everyone of the characters was fully rounded, even the secondary character arcs, and I felt sad at each death, maybe-death and even when things just didn’t work out properly for our characters.I loved every moment of this game. At certain points you get to see Peter’s Mum, go back inside his memories of her. It was incredibly sad watching her die, especially because you’re playing a 10 year old character at the time. Drax’s family was a crazy minefield, and I just want to hug him now. Rocket’s girlfriend Lylla was hella amazing, as was Gamora’s upbringing and even playing as Groot was so cool! I love Telltale storytelling, and there were points I wanted to laugh, points I wanted to cry. It was amazing. Seriously, give it a go.

Like Batman I will put my choices down below! SPOILERS AHEAD:
