Here’s the Ink Drop for this week’s new game releases. We’ve got some surprisingly big releases for this time of year as we see the long-awaited remaster of Double Fine’s (LucasArts’ at the time) point and click classic. Speaking of classics, Capcom’s Disney Afternoon collection is being digitally released with those old favorites DuckTales, Talespin, Darkwing Duck and more. Unfortunately, the collection doesn’t feature the amazing remix of DuckTales by WayForward from a couple of years back. Seriously, that’s worth hunting down. Lastly, Telltale Games is back with their take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Just in time for the new movie, it’s already getting great feedback.
Take a look at this week’s full list, and chime in with what you’re checking out!
Once again, it is NEW COMIC BOOK DAY! A few new titles debuting this week as Marvel rolls out X-Men: Blue, Secret Warriors, and Black Panther & The Crew. Image chimes in with Rose #1 as well as a new issue of Wicked + Divine. Speaking of different takes on gods, BOOM Studios debuts Godshaper which asks the question “What if everyone had their own, personal Jesus?”
At the risk of hyperbole, Injustice 2 is the type of game that makes me want to buy a new couch. I WILL wear it out with my butt groove. This new chapter of Shattered Alliances introduces us to The Society, and… wait, is that Poison Ivy?
In a teaser trailer released on YouTube, Marvel and Netflix let slip the official release date of The Defenders: August 18th. In the video, security camera footage shows the group (our first in-show footage) riding an elevator in the Midland Circle Financial building, the mysterious corporation at the center of that huge hole in Daredevil season 2. Jessica Jones, being the detective she is, sees the elevator’s security camera and smashes it exactly at the 08:18:20:17. Check it out below, and expect a full trailer to follow soon!
The album has a companion graphic novel written by Matt Fraction and drawn by Albert Monteys. It’s a science fiction story about the internet, the future, artificial intelligence, and how probably only love will save us.
Annville, TX is long gone and so are Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy. Season 2 will continue with the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish)’s hunt for Jesse; while also introducing a new character executive producer Sam Caitlin teases as, “the figure in white, and fanboys will know who that is. They’ve already seen the character briefly.”
Originally slated for June 19th, the trailer reveals that Preacher season 2 debuts on AMC on June 25th.
