>“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of them 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. From Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond, and set to the beat of awesome music, you wear the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, where your decisions and actions drive the story you experience.”

man i miss pre MCU. companies could atleast take different approaches to adapting marvel properties, now its all gotta be MCU

It's an improvement over green Saldana at least.

I don't know, man. For all the things the MCU fucked up they're the only thing stopping Marvel related stuff to go full-SJW like the comics.

>>90566013
Yeah it seems like this is going to keep happening if they let uninspired hacks write GotG stories, at least until vol. 2 comes out.
>>
>>90565920
DnA Guardians will never come back, will they?
>>
>>90566115
X-Men Legends was also full of movie-pandering though. They just happened to be able to blend it pretty perfectly with some more fun and colorful elements from the comics.

It was enjoyable nonetheless, and not the same exact plot over and over again. The MCU drove the whole McGuffin thing stale.

I loved MUA cinematics, huge improvement over Apocalypse.

They should have gotten Steve Downes to voice Star-Lord again, like he did in EMH. It'd confuse the shit out of everyone.

I like the guy they had in Avengerd Assemble before Ron Stoppable started voicing him.

This. I have no problem with the MCU Guardians but I have a major problem with Telltale "games."

Can't wait to hear how terrible their version of Star-Lord sounds, since literally every version beyond Chris Pratt sounds awful.
>>
>>90566181
They wouldn't have come back even if the movie didn't exist. There was nowhere left for the story to go.
>>
>>90566719
Actually, the could have done what Loveness is doing with Dick in the current Nova ongoing. But this time Star-Lord is also infected.
>>
>>90566788
If the movie wasn't in development there's no way Star-Lord would have come back. Nova probably still would have eventually, but the number of Star-Lord appearances and fans was much much smaller.

But I meant there was nowhere left for the team to go in that form. They accomplished their task and went their separate ways, so what do you do next? How do you top the Cancerverse? And without making the Annihilators, Pete's dream team, look like retards in comparison?

Either you blow it up way bigger and turn the GOTG into a Nova Corps like entity, losing their underdog charm in the process, or you downsize and make them more of a mercenary group or family unit. Which is what they did.

>>90566962
I agree Star-Lord's situation was the most dire one, though he gained himself enough of a cult following and could easily be brought back later on.

>They accomplished their task and went their separate ways, so what do you do next? How do you top the Cancerverse?
This is not Dragon Ball Z, you don't need the new villain to be the most powerful one yet to make the Guardians work.

How many times the Avengers have gone their separate ways only to reunite once again?
>But anon, the Avengers fucking suck and they done it who knows how many times. It's a stale trope
Yes, but unlike the Avengers that have been around since the 60s, the Guardians were new and fresh, a reunion arc wouldn't have hurt.

>Either you blow it up way bigger and turn the GOTG into a Nova Corps like entity
That kinda were the Annihilators, in the sense they were way bigger than the Guardians.

>you downsize and make them more of a mercenary group or family unit
I would have liked this approach in the comics. Let's say Rocket reunites old members and maybe gets in new faces and then cancer-verse infected Richard and Peter return, make an excuse the Annihilators are too busy with their own stuff to be a rapid response group as to make the necessity of the Guardians to exist.

Telltale normally follows comics designs and tries to keep the movie and tv synergy to a minimum and yet we get exact movie Starlord?
Why?
>>
>>90565961
The worst part is that you can totally make a game where choices actually do matter and still do the episodic thing they do. Until Dawn wasn't perfect, but you still somehow had a lot more control over the framing of that story than any Telltale game.

Plus, Telltale has only one trick: the shock death/faked shock death.

I hope this is more akin to Tales from the Borderlands.

Man, Rocket's legs are fucked up in this. He looks like parts of them were removed and he was sewn back together about 25% shorter than before.
