Telltale continues to release episodes from different series in a rapid-fire pace, and today is the turn of Episode 4 of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series ($4.99). Episode four is titled “Who Needs You" and continues what has become an entertaining story that mostly plays to the strengths of the Telltale formula. Spoilers from here on, of course. In the previous episode, Star-Lord decided the fate of the all-powerful Eternity Forge, but that, of course, created all kinds of splinters in the group and widened pre-existing ones. And now that everyone has to escape their confinement, things are getting critical. There might even a scenario where not everyone makes it out of there alive.
As you can read in my reviews of the series so far, I’ve been enjoying the series because it focuses on narrative more than a series like Minecraft Story Mode for instance. The series’ decision to give us fewer action scenes and more character-based conflicts works well in building tension and making the narrative intriguing. I’m hoping episode 4 continues the strong story and continues to build on the interesting characters of the previous episode. The episode is out now and is $4.99.
