For anyone who has yet to play Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: A Telltale Series, you might be surprised to find the depths to some characters that do not get the same representation on the big screen. The game is very unpredictable and will always have you guessing and never exactly sure where the next chapter will take you.
The games 5th and final episode is titled "Don't Stop Believin" and will be available from November 7th (expect a review shortly after that), the final episode will bring the series to an end. Guardians have been a fun filled team of misfits on the big screen for a couple of years now, though their run time in the comic book world has lasted decades longer. It has been fun getting to see different sides to the characters through Telltale games signature gameplay style.
Telltale Games have been a beacon of storytelling stability for many a year now, it is refreshing and wonderful to see what they can turn their hand to a compelling story. They have transformed the Borderlands, brought Fables to life and even laid another dimension to Minecraft and Game of Thrones.
The second series of Telltale Games Batman is a welcome return to my screen with the titular character carrying on a refreshing and different pacing to the Dark Knight that we are used to. The return to Telltale Games is welcome and the choices carried out within the game’s first series will have a last effect on the dark days to come in the games second series, which is titled The Enemy Within.
If you have read any of my articles on Telltale Games before then you will know I am a huge fan of the interactive story with hard choices and the consequences that you have to live with. The games low level of interactivity with the actual story has been a point of contention with some players which is understandable if you are wanting something a little more hands on. The Batman series allows you to interact a little more with environments and get into the roles of both Batman and Bruce Wayne, allowing for 2 different sides of the same coin. The game delivers a engrossing narrative that gives players a 2-3 hour burst of gameplay, which can be enjoyed at the time or you can wait until the full series is over then play all the episodes (roughly 10 hour play time) all at once.
On the build up to San Diego Comic Con TellTale Games have shown their hand to much delight from fans of the narrative driven games studio. The studio released a video on their YouTube channel which highlights the next 3 big games coming out.
The three iconic games coming out will be; Batman: The Enemy Within, The Walking Dead: The Final Season and (much to my sheer and utter delight)The Wolf Among Us: Season 2.
The Three month wait is finally almost over, despite the episode leaking on Xbox One earlier this week, Telltale have released a rather exciting and intriguing Trailer for the next episode in the point and click adventure set in the famous comic series’ universe. Beware of spoilers below as I delve into some of what this trailer shows as well as discuss a few of the events from the last two episodes.
