If you look through my blog you will notice that I have played a lot of Telltale games. I like Telltale games and will continue to play them as long as they keep making them. I enjoy the relaxing nature of the games and I enjoy the stories. I view these games as interactive movies where I’m here for the story. I don’t mind that my decisions don’t have a huge impact on the story, I just want to experience the story.
My favorite of Marvel Franchise is probably the Guardians of the Galaxy so when I found that Telltale was making a Guardians of the Galaxy game, I was excited about it. Then I heard a lot of reviews and I didn’t hear good things about the game. I just held off and didn’t pick it up until now.
After playing through the whole game, I wish I did pick the game up in 2017. It wouldn’t have made my top 10 but probably top 15. The game did have its technical issues but I still found the story to be engaging.
There is a game breaking bug that I encountered in the third episode. Basically, there is a scene where you walk around and talk to your crew and once you’ve done so, a cutscene is triggered. In my first try, the cutscene never triggered. I quit the game, loaded it back up. Had to go through 10 minutes of the same dialogue only to not have cutscene trigger again. At this point, I read online that its a known bug and it seems like some of your decisions throughout the episode can cause this bug. I restarted the episode, had to go through 40 minutes of the same shit and the cutscene still didn’t trigger. At this point, I almost gave up on the game. I decided to give it one more try. I would restart my PS4 and load up the save file and sure enough that fixed the problem. Being a fan of the British Comedy, The IT Crowd, I don’t know why I didn’t try this first.
Other than the episode breaking bug, I did enjoy this game. I do think Telltale Games are for a select number of people and I also think people are getting sick of the Telltale formula. Personally me, I still enjoy the games. Realistically, I could see myself playing 1 or 2 per year.
