Yes, you read that right. Marvel and Telltale are going to be making games together.
Telltale is on a roll. Walking dead, Boderlands, Game of thrones, wolf among us, minecraft and now a partnership with marvel? This deal could result in some really amazing games from the Marvel universe.i.e Telltale presents Wolverines Origins. :)
At this point, I'm just wondering when they'll partner with DC.
It will happen at some point.its just like Activision and the DC and Marvel lego games. Activision has made so much off the lego games. Starwars, Pirates of the Caribean, Harry Potter etc
Calling it now: Telltale's Star Wars Chronicles by 2018.
-__- Telltale first game was with Dc comic Wolf Among Us.
Don't forget Lionsgate (Twilight or Hunger Games?). Didn't they also do Jurassic Park or are going to do it? I forget.
They did Jurassic Park, but from what I hear, it's either that or Back to the Future that they didn't finish. I'm like 85% sure they're doing Hunger Games.
Lol. I didn't even know about those. Hunger Games? Really? Well they are great at telling stories and their games do not require huge budgets and they always get decent sales . I can see why many companies would love to partner with them.
Can i choose the vampire or a werewolf?
I just want TWD season 3. Their other recent games haven't really pulled me in as much as that series tbh.
Typical Again TellTale using big names and franchises with established audiences behind them to sell their games Point and click games can't evolve and they know this so they use these big franchises to sell the games knowing it will sell because it's a certain brand. Of all the games they've done they've never once done something different or a game with their own universe created from scratch. Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Borderlands, Game of Thrones, Minecraft, Marvel...I mean come on Why is it people can easily point out how First Person Shooter games are "always the same" and yet TellTales same old point and click games get a free pass.
I'd argue that it's more than the gameplay that makes people go FPS' are the same. It's the setting, the color variety, the story, etc. After a while they all start to blend together except for minor things. But with each Telltale property, you can tell them apart from each other just by visuals alone.
There's been plenty of first person shooter games, not a lot but some, which you can easily tell the difference by and yet people can easily speak out about FPS games in general Even when a game is FPS the first thing you usually hear without any gameplay is "Oh Jesus...another FPS game" If TellTale did the Walking Dead as a brand new IP with no connection whats so ever with the Walking Dead which at the time it's fanbase had rocketed then it wouldn't of been praised as much as it did. It would of just been "another Zombie game" EDIT Ah disagrees...of course Hypocrites.
Sure but it would be another game zombie with a choice system that i dont see much , outside of VN games . personally i dont care that they dont reinvent the wheel , what they are doing is rare enough already , and even more rarely well done . Seeing a CoD or CoD type shooter every year is hardly the same feeling imo The concept alone makes it one of those ultimate fanservice adventures based on franchises you might love . More so than a random beat them all , or mediocre fighting game in some cases The one thing i hope would be for them to ditch the engine or or up the ante with it . It's getting outdated , especially for a universe as "stylised" as Marvel's , and of course we could do with less bugs .
So you're comparing an entire over saturated genre to one studio doing what they do. I don't know how the comparison fits in the first place, but at least most of what they do is different from what else is available, and is also good quality. First person shooters are mostly copy, edit, paste.
At one time they used to do pretty good puzzle games but now they just exploit the same thing over and over using big names to do it. Least the FPS genre evolved a little over the years Wolfenstein/Doom - The beginning Goldeneye/Half Life - Story based Halo Combat Evolved - The change, upping stakes Call of Duty - Online What's the point and click genre done? They could at least try to do something different or maybe do a puzzle game but they don't. Same thing, different IP it's based on. It's lazy and my point above is that we can easily call the FPS genre out but at least it has evolved a little.
Telltales games aren't even point and click games anymore. They're just interactive movies. At least with the Sam and Max games, they had some puzzles in there. But nowadays with TWD and whatever other hit franchise they decide to spin-off, it's nothing more than choose a dialogue option and once in a while walk around and choose who you get to talk to. When do we get to the point of Telltale games on Netflix?
I agree with you Foxtrot. The Minecraft game it's like a joke of April's fool. Telltale games are really overrated.
Please don't tell me that you believe that an indie studio could afford the rights to make games based on those big names and franchises! If Telltale are making games based on big franchises is because the companies that own those franchises want or are willing to partner with them most likely due to the fact that they recognize Telltale's talent and the quality of their games.
Marvel is teaming up with Attack on Titan. Maybe we can get a Marvel x Attack on Titan video game tie-in! But focus on S3 TWD guys. I need.
Well, this is due out in 2017, so plenty of time. :P
Wow, what an announcement!
Am I the only one that wants TellTale games to do a Supernatural game?
No, youre not.
Sign me up bro!
Great announcement cant wait
Telltale should continue with the Dc comic Fables books they still have lots of source they can use.
I demand a Terminator and Star Wars game from Telltale.
I'm ok with this as long as The Wolf Among Us Season 2 is being made.
Blade The Game. Gambit The Game. Immortals The Game. Yeah that could work
I Hope Telltale and Lucasfilms/Disney Make Star Wars
They have their hands in too many projects already. You can only spread the real talent so thin . . .
start making bets on a captain America/avengers civil war movie tie in probably playing as Daredevil defending a heroe or attacking the registration directly
Wow, this is exciting news, love the games from Telltale. i usually wait for it to come out on disc though, because once you've played through those types of games theres not much replay value, but you can trade it in or loan it to your friends.
If it's not a Squirrel Girl game we riot!
What's the point of it? It would be obvious that Squirrel Girl would single handedly defeat everyone in the first episode, so there would be no point for any other episodes. Unless it would be about Squirrel Girl the Babysitter!
Telltale + Marvel = so far the best announcement this year. The whole Civil War arc could be properly made as an episodic game, plus the ability to chose which side you'd ally with. Season 2 could go with Secret Invasion follow up. Hubbah hubbah.
Agreed! But wud love to see rocksteady tackle that.. yeah wishful thinking lol
Oh hell yeah daredevil please!
