Telltale did a pretty bang-up job with their first Guardians of the Galaxy chapter, and now Episode 2: Under Pressure continues the story while delving into the backgrounds of a couple characters. I'm particularly excited that Chapter 2 takes us to Halfworld, the planet where Rocket Raccoon was created. Rocket is one of my favorite characters and I'm a little bummed that the movies haven't done much with his rather tragic origins, but luckily, the Telltale series is in its own continuity so they have the freedom to explore that kind of thing.
Under Pressure is out today on PC, PS4, Xbox One and mobile platforms for $4.99.

Episode two description: "The Guardians just can't seem to outrun the past (or their tab), but if they figure out how to control the untold power of their mysterious new relic, they might not have to. With help from dubious old friends and unwilling new allies, Star-Lord and company scour the galaxy for answers. But how long can they elude the genocidal maniac hunting them?
