Just Push Start - 1 hour 56 min ago
The first trailer for the Guardians of the Galaxy video game is finally here. You can see what the graphics look like and how the game is shaping up to be like.

Star Lord, Gamora and Drax don’t look like Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana or Dave Bautista in this game. Not to mention they have different voices. Anyway, the game will have Thanos as the main villain from the looks of things. The first episode of the Guardians of the Galaxy video game will be out on April 18th on multiple different platforms. The game is developed by TellTale so expect the same style of visuals and gameplay. This game is going to retain the humor and retro music that is famous from the movies.
