A small piece of advice to Marvel and director James Gunn: Do not put any kind of 16-bit video game version of anything in your marketing materials because we will want to play that video game oh so very badly. On his Facebook page, Gunn has provided a sneak peek at the Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray special features, but he introduces it with a 16-bit opening where we see Star-Lord side-scrolling through a cave. I want this game now and it will probably never exist unless someone creates an unofficial version. Someone: go create an unofficial version.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios.
