Guardians of the Galaxy getting their own playset in Disney Infinity 2.0

You had to figure it was coming, with the Guardians of the Galaxy movie set to open in theaters next week, but it’s official: Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon will be getting their own playset in Disney Infinity 2.0. Check out the trailer below.

The playset will not only contain the five playable characters from the movie, but will also support two crossover characters: Iron Man (from the Avengers playset) and Nova (from the Spider-Man playset). Collecting 10 tokens during the campaign unlocks the crossover characters, which have their own unique missions. The playset will take story cues from both the movie and the current comics run, and has plenty of items to unlock in the Toy Box Mode. These items include:

Gamora’s space armor for added protection against enemies

The Walking Dead: Season Two- Episode 4 “Amid the Ruins”- Tough decisions during tough times

The penultimate episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two has arrived, and for the most part it’s a doozy. Picking up where the end of Episode 3, “In Harm’s Way”, left off, “Amid the Ruins” finds our heroine Clementine and her fellow survivors in dire straits, surrounded by a walker herd. A tough choice comes almost immediately, and they don’t get much easier as the episode goes on. There may even be times where you cringe at your decisions, making you wonder how you could decide such things. As it has for this season of Telltale Games The Walking Dead your choices always seem to be between bad and worse, and do you let morals dictate your pick or do you choose the more practical approach and base things on your continued survival...

Abyss Odyssey- A fun and at times frustrating descent into the pit

abysso2Developer ACE team, the folks behind Rock of Ages and Zeno Clash, are back with a new game that’s part roguelike dungeon crawler and part fighter. Abyss Odyssey combines the two with procedurally generated dungeons and enemies with a full set of fighting moves that takes its visual design cues from Art Noveau and Chilean folklore. It’s spurred along by a decent story with some interesting revelations against nicely done visuals and with some great music to accompany you on your journey into the depths. I’ll say right off the bat this game will not be for everybody. While the game does save at certain points, it only saves your experience points, level of your character, and your gold that you’ve acquired...

Mortal Kombat X- Raiden trailer

A new trailer has been released showcasing Raiden for Mortal Kombat X. Take a look below (trailer courtesy of MKIceAndFire).

As you can see, Raiden has three distinct forms of play, making him a formidable opponent. While he figures into the story line for Mortal Kombat X as a key figure, he will not be as central to the plot as he was in the previous entry to the series.

Mortal Kombat X is set for release sometime in 2015 for the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Very, very slim pickings this week. Good week for those who want to catch up on their backlogs, or finally get around to play an earlier title that you missed. Only two games for the week, one for the PS4 and one for the PC. Elsewhere, we have the family film Rio 2 landing on home video, along with the sci-fi flick Under the Skin.

Sniper Elite III- The perfect shot satisfies (single player campaign review)

Sniper Elite V-2 prose3-2ved to be a sometimes satisfying WW2 game, but was often hampered by linear design for the missions and an inconsistent enemy AI. Now Rebellion and 505 Games have released a sequel. Sniper Elite III addresses some of the problems of its predecessor, though it doesn’t quite fix them all. Enemy AI is still a mixed bag, as foes can go from oblivious to preternaturally able to track you down and home in on your location within an instant. Enemies homing in often results in large firefights, though if you can relocate swiftly and far enough from your discovered position they’ll soon give up searching, allowing you to return to your previous spot and snipe merrily away. Other times you can kill an enemy right next to another, without the other batting an eye...
