Telltale’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ series could be better than the movies

The first “Guardians of the Galaxy” episode was top-notch. Should Telltale have married with Marvel on an “X-Men” series instead? Of course, but “Tangled up in Blue” is still worth your time.

‘MLB The Show 17’ improves already polished gem

In all, “MLB The Show 17” is a solid upgrade. It’s not a world-beater, but it certainly lives up to the quality resumé created by its forefathers. I don’t envy sports game developers because they have to try and do something with a core concept that hasn’t changed. Baseball has been largely the same for 150 years, so you can’t really expect Sony San Diego to create a game in which the bats are replaced with laser guns and bloodthirsty aliens roam the outfield.
