Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy The Telltale Series Ep: 1 Playthrough and Review: A Farewell to Kings

April 21st, 2017 -

Good news! We played through the first episode of Telltale’s new series. Bad news! Our commentary was way too quiet and hard to hear compared to the game audio. This was absolutely my fault for not doing QA on our end. However, above is our playthrough of the first episode; Monica had the reigns for 99% of the video. We did a recap of our thoughts at the end, but since it’s practically not possible to hear over the game audio, I’ll go ahead and summarize our thoughts here. Read More »

Surely, this must be a fever dream. You see a bright light, and soon after the figure disappears into the floor. You arise to a room you’ve never seen before. Where are you? It’s lavish, overly so. Gold everywhere, expensive figurines, and you hear a man in the distance worried about being found. What could possibly be going on? Welcome to The Sexy Brutale. Read More »

April 8th, 2017 -

Hearken back to the days when Rare was one of the biggest developers in the industry, with the likes of GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, and the Banjo-Kazooie games. Now that you’re thinking of Banjo-Kazooie, when’s the last time you played a collect-a-thon game like that? Been a while since one has come out, huh?
