The Fancies 2021: John Warren’s Top 10 Games of the Year

In a year I promised myself I’d play more Final Fantasy XIV to prepare for Endwalker, I ended up playing everything besides the best MMO on the market today. It’s not that XIV isn’t great, nor that I don’t want to see it to its magnificent conclusion. It’s more that…

The Fancies 2021: Some of Imran’s Top Games of the Year

I don’t think we have enough appreciation for how weird 2021 has been for video games — or really anything. That anything came out this year is a small miracle; that enough really good things came out this year to fill a list, much less the list of 50 games…

The Fancies 2021: Elise’s Top Games of the Year

This is going to sound corny, but this past year has been a huge lesson in happiness and balance for me. I changed jobs, moved across the country, and started anew in more ways than one. Part of that transition has been interacting with games differently than before, allowing myself…

The Fancies 2021: Natalie Flores’ Game of the Year List

2021 has often been pretty terrible, but at least it’s been a fantastic year for video games. I genuinely mean that. Video games are in some way tied to every source of happiness I’ve had throughout the last 12 months. That they’ve had such a spectacular year, offering plenty of…

The Fancies 2021: Kenneth Shepard’s Favorite Games That Weren’t Mass Effect

Gosh, 2021 is much harder to define for me than last year. 2020 was full of turmoil, and grief, but it was also a year of putting myself back together and coming out stronger on the other side. Now that 2021 is ending, there are a lot of things that…

Guardians of the Galaxy Cleverly Uses Flashbacks To Open Its World

Guardians of the Galaxy is linear. But it isn’t linear. An open-world game might say, “See that mountain? You can climb it.” But Eidos Montreal’s Marvel story smartly sets its exploratory sights on memory instead. When we say that a video game is linear, or nonlinear, we’re typically describing how…

Star-Lord is Bisexual, So When Will Games and Movies Catch Up?

The following article will contain spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy. I’ll lead this article by giving Guardians of the Galaxy developer Eidos-Montreal the benefit of the doubt: the revelation that Peter “Star-Lord” Quill is bisexual is a relatively recent one. It came about last December, where the 2020-2021 Guardians…

Guardians of the Galaxy Commits to Its Stupid Fridge Gag and I Love It

One of my favorite things about Eidos-Montreal’s take on Guardians of the Galaxy is its commitment to making the Milano, the ship the aforementioned Guardians use to travel through the stars, feel like a lived-in space. While it’s not a super fair comparison considering the games came out a decade…

Let the Guardians of the Galaxy Say ‘Fuck’

Who among us doesn’t like to drop the f-bomb into casual conversation? I get the sense someone in the writers room of Guardians of the Galaxy does, but probably didn’t have the greenlight by Marvel and Square Enix to let Star-Lord and friends drop this particular curse word. After all,…

Guardians of the Galaxy Teaches the Virtues of Emulation

When Square Enix first revealed Guardians of the Galaxy earlier this year at their E3 show, it was a little disappointing that they actively chose to mimic the style of the popular Marvel Cinematic Universe movies rather than take it in their own direction. The sci-fi/comedic mix seemed to aim to…

Eidos Montreal Created a Fictional Band Called “Star-Lord” For Guardians of the Galaxy’s Soundtrack

Music is pretty integral to the character of Peter “Star-Lord” Quill, the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy in Marvel’s universe. One of his defining characteristics is his love of ’80s rock music passed on in the form of a mixtape he keeps with him in his intergalactic journeys.…

Square-Enix announced Eidos-Montreal is working on a Guardians of the Galaxy game at its E3 presentation earlier this week.
