Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People: Season 1 - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

The sad saga of Telltale’s fall is due one last tragic chapter. GOG have just announced that all of the defunct choose-your-own-adventure studio’s games will be de-listed next Monday, May 27th at 11am BST. That includes Telltale’s own games like Puzzle Agent, and all three seasons of Sam & Max adventures, as well as licensed games like The Wolf Among Us, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Batman, and the excellent Tales From The Borderlands. The last of which has already been removed from Steam, though publisher 2K Games are working to bring it (and it alone) back, as reported by Eurogamer.

The Verge report that a skeleton crew of around 25 will remain at the studio, down from around 250. A source tells USGamer the upcoming The Wolf Among Us 2 and a Stranger Things adventure series have been cancelled. Telltale Games have released no official statement yet.

The fifth and final part of Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy episodic adventure blasts off today, wrapping up the first season. It’s got everything: friendship; loss; action; supervillains; banter; big guns; and the sense that everyone and everything you have known and loved may soon be destroyed. Now I’m no Albert Shakespeare but that sounds like the sum total of human existence to me. (more…)

With the fate of the Eternity Forge decided, the Guardians are left more bitterly divided than ever. But this growing tension is temporarily sidelined by a more pressing problem: escaping a dark and treacherous cavern before they all get eaten alive. As the cave's hidden threats creep closer, Star-Lord must hold his crew together if he hopes to keep everyone safe. Safety, however, may ultimately come at a terrible cost...

The second episode of Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy arrives later today, and it seems it’ll bring a fork in the spaceroad. A trailer heralding the launch gabs about choosing between a path digging into Rocket’s path and one going into Gamora’s family as the gang of spacefriends investigate a doohickey. Do you love your spacesister or your dogbrother more? I’m sure they’ll remember that. They’ll probably allude to it over Spacechristmas dinner then slowly build up to a meltdown during the Spacechristmas Doctor Who. Anyway! Have a look in the trailer: … [visit site to read more]

The cassette tape in Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy [official site] is called ‘Rad Mix’ instead of ‘Awesome Mix.’ A crueller man than I might observe that this is all we really need to know about Telltale’s not-based-on-the-film-and-yet-kinda-is spin on the adventures of Rocket, Groot and chums. I.e., that it really, really> wants to be be just like what is arguably the most purely entertaining superhero film on the past decade, but it can’t quite pull it off.
