Marvel has proven that its interest in video games is anything but a passing fancy. The two Insomniac Spider-Man games have wowed with amazing visuals and an enthralling superhero story. In addition, upcoming entries such as Marvel’s Midnight Suns and Marvel’s Wolverine have fans excited for the future. But what can fans play now? Developer Eidos Montreal has the answer with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and we’re going to be streaming the opening two hours live exclusively on Twitch!
Join Alex Stadnik, John Carson, and Dan Tack as they check out the latest game to feature Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket, Gamora, and Drax starting at 2 p.m. CT! The crew will be starting from the very beginning of the game, testing out the new combat system, and trying to shut up during a majority of the game’s wonderful cutscenes.
If you haven’t heard by now, Guardians of the Galaxy is quite good, while not perfect. The developer’s choice to center the game around Star-Lord pays off in gameplay and narrative perspectives. Our official review, penned by the EIC Andrew Reiner, says:
From the moment the Guardians of the Galaxy are introduced as a space-faring team that will do anything for a quick buck, it’s abundantly clear how much of a dysfunctional mess they are. Gamora and Rocket are at each other’s throats. Drax and Star-Lord don’t see eye to eye. And no one is paying attention to Groot. For the next 15-plus hours of gameplay, I listened to these misfits bicker, hurl insults, and chatter nonstop – much to my enjoyment.
