It’s a good time to be a fan of Marvel and video games! You just had a major expansion to Marvel’s Avengers launch, next month you get a Guardians of the Galaxy game and there was a bunch of stuff just announced at the recent PlayStation showcase.

Mobile fans weren’t completely left out either as a huge and potentially ambitious new MMO for iOS and Android launched just a few weeks ago in Marvel Future Revolution, drawing many comparisons to Marvel’s Avengers.

Well friends I’ve spent a decent amount of hours now with Marvel Future Revolution, and while it definitely…


Well I’ll be honest I wasn’t expecting to write much of anything about this week’s PlayStation showcase even if it was going to be a really good one, who would know there’d be so many Disney-related games to write about? But Disney and Specifically Marvel really had a big presence at today’s presentation. Let’s break it down:

Guardians of The Galaxy

Look I’m excited for this, it’s a day one buy for me, I expect it to be a pretty solid game. Even if you are basing your expectations on not being to keen on Marvel’s Avengers, the general consensus is that the…


Before the game even launched, Marvel’s Avengers courted a pretty big amount of controversy. Whether it was that the cast just looked like bad stunt doubles of their MCU counterparts, the self-praise over the voice cast that while good, is just the usual suspects you hear in 90% of video games these days or the confusing system of resources and microtransactions. One of the bigger controversies still is the matter of Marvel’s most popular hero, Spider-Man.

Promised as a PlayStation exclusive (and this isn’t because Sony owns all rights to Spider-Man, they don’t they own the film rights, that’s it…


Yesterday we got a brief glimpse of what exactly when are in store for when the first turn-based strategy RPG featuring Marvel characters comes our way early next year.

Midnight Suns is a turn-based strategy RPG from the minds behind the recent X-Com games, Firaxis, but it’s quite different from those previous efforts as yesterday’s reveal showed. Midnight Suns features a hub where you’ll build relationships with established Marvel heroes and engage in other activities between battles, but also most interestingly the game has a heavy basis in card systems.


Double Fine has pretty much always been a studio that took really daring and weird risks. Sometimes they paid off, sometimes not so much but everything they’ve put out is at least interesting. Their latest release, Psychonauts 2, is arguably their strongest entry to date, already on the minds of many as a top contender for game of the year, and deservedly so. It’s brimming with creativity and handles deep topics pretty adeptly. …


Hey, all I have one big game reveal in particular to talk about today from Gamescom 2021 but there are several games I’m going to be discussing in this entry that had a presence at the show and/or came out recently. One of them isn’t even actually a Disney game but is super Disney-adjacent.

Firstly I mentioned it briefly on Twitter but while I will collect it at some point probably on sale, for the time being, I am passing on covering Aliens Fireteam Elite. It’s mostly that I by and large play games single-player mostly due to a really…


This is it, the big hail mary for Marvel’s Avengers, The War For Wakanda expansion that features a new character in the incredibly popular Black Panther, a new area to explore in Wakanda, new enemies, and bosses and some revamps to the existing game as well. Is it the savior the game so desperately needs?

On its own I’d say if you weren’t into Marvel’s Avengers before, War for Wakanda isn’t going to magically convince you. For one, rather than a whole new campaign on par with the initial story campaign, the story content is only a few hours long…


This is arguably a make-or-break time for Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers. The game has had a rocky year since its launch last August. A lot of that can certainly be attributed to unfortunately having to adjust to making a game with constant updates in the wake of a pandemic but it arguably got off on a bad foot from the start and went long periods between significant content updates.

Later today, the (first? only?) expansion The War For Wakanda launches and brings with it a new major campaign, setting, new bosses, and a significant overhaul as well as the Black…


The strategy game based in the Marvel universe by developers Firaxis, best known for the highly acclaimed X-Com series of turn-based strategy games, is definitely a thing, but we have very little in the way of concrete details on the game as of yet.

Some possible details came to light recently, however, and seemed to potentially paint the upcoming game in a bad light before it’s even revealed.

According to Jeff Grubb, the upcoming Marvel strategy game from Firaxis will not feature any existing MCU characters and you’ll create your own custom team of heroes. …


With Monsters, Inc. being a thing again thanks to Monsters at Work on Disney Plus (which is a fun little show) I thought I’d take a look back at one of the games that was released around the same time as the original film, back when monsters still scared because they cared, and it’s a game with an original premise rather than just being loosely based on the film, Monsters, Inc. Scream Team. Though the original premise makes absolutely no sense as I will explain.
