‘Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series’ Ep. 2 Trailer Puts You ‘Under Pressure’

Telltale’s Guardian of the Galaxy [$ 4.99] series is about to get its second episode, and today we got to see the trailer for Under Pressure. Spoilers from here on. The Guardians have in their possession an extremely powerful relic that can bring people back from the dead (and do even more), and they are being hunted by people who are more than willing to do bodily harm. So, Star-Lord and the rest have to go find old friends and call in some favors if they are to make it through alive. At the same time, the team isn’t at its best, so it’s quite possible the Guardians will start losing members in Under Pressure.

The first episode, which we reviewed, was quite fun, even though the aging engine and some action sequences did get in the way of the story. I’m excited to see where the story will lead us, and I hope the developers continue to focus more on the characters and less on action scenes. Expect Episode 2 to hit in the next two days.

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs. Galaxy S7 edge quick camera comparison

You couldn’t possibly have missed our three-way smartphone comparison between the LG G6, Samsung Galaxy S8, and Sony Xperia XZ Premium we published two weeks ago, but if that’s somehow the case be sure to catch up now. The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge didn’t quite belong in that group, and for an obvious reason – it’s last year’s model. We did, however, bring it along when we went to shoot the camera samples – a new vs. old shootout was always part of our plans, even if just for in-house consumption.
