Rick Astley Reclaims The “RICKROLL” For Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy
Rick Astley and video game developer Eidos-Montréal, a Square Enix studio, have released a video showing the ‘80s icon donning his quintessential quiff and tricking gamers into inadvertently becoming a victim of the classic meme. The video, created for today’s launch of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, puts Rick in the role of a mysterious hacker who develops a mischievous ruse to Rickroll players within the game. Of his involvement, Rick Astley said: “For years I’ve been biding my time, patiently waiting for the perfect moment to take back ownership of the Rickroll. When I found out Never Gonna Give You Up was in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, it was clear this was the opportunity I had been waiting for!” He continued: “In all seriousness though, I’m genuinely excited to be part of the game’s soundtrack, to feature alongside so many wonderful songs that defined a decade and have personally influenced my youth ...

Star-Lord Turns To Plan B In New TV Spot For Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy
Today, Eidos-Montréal revealed a brand-new, high-octane TV spot to set the stage for next week’s official launch of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In the trailer, viewers are dropped straight into the middle of a mid-battle Huddle, where Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot assess the situation, discuss strategy and, of course, banter before deciding to go with Plan B — an all-out, coordinated assault appropriately fueled by Mötley Crüe’s “Kickstart My Heart.” This same Huddle mechanic will prove essential for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy players as they fight to overcome seemingly impossible odds throughout their journey across the galaxy. In the game, players will be able to call a Huddle during combat and choose which motivational words to offer the team. If chosen correctly, all of the Guardians will receive a powerup, making it easier for them to bang enemy heads while listening to one of the game’s 30 ...

Latest Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy Videos Spotlight Leadership Both In And Out Of Combat
Eidos-Montréal have released two new videos for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, each featuring insights directly from Senior Gameplay Director Patrick Fortier. In the first video, Fortier hones in on how the Guardians synergize in battle, while the second focuses on how players can lead the Guardians outside of it. Just as they all have their own distinct personalities out of combat, each Guardian similarly boasts their own unique specialties and abilities on the battlefield, with their strategic management proving paramount for players hoping to take down the vast array of different enemies they’ll encounter while adventuring through the cosmos. Rocket serves as the group’s multi-target explosive specialist, Groot as its protector and healer, Drax as its staggering wrecking ball, Gamora as its high-damage single-target assassin, and Star-Lord as, of course, its versatile “so-called” leader.

Grand Unifier Raker states that the Matriarch wishes to share with them a truth — one that can supposedly end all grief and suffering.
