Rick Astley Talks About ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy; He Likes Rick-Rolling Gamers

The official Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy media accounts have shared a brief video of Rick Astley discussing the inclusion of the highly memed song, “Never Gonna Give You Up,” in the game.

Astley states how it’s an honor that he’s been included with such a culturally impactful song. He finds the musical implementation in the title to be rather impressive such as how Peter reacts to songs he plays. Further, he also likes how he’s quite literally ‘Rick-Rolling’ gamers across the world in-game.

If you missed it, check out our review of the title’s PlayStation 5 version. If you’ve been skeptical of the game’s quality due to the mediocre reception of Marvel’s Avengers, then I assure you it is far above what that game provided.

In the story, the group has been together for less than a year, and they must face off against a massive threat to the galaxy. Non-popular enemies are promised to make appearances, so players have hopefully inventive battles to look forward to.

Moreover, players can choose dialogue options that get a reaction from the others. Environments will feature enemy waves where players can utilize character skills, including Starlord’s jet boots. Gameplay has players take a strategic approach to gunplay where players can switch skills on the fly to take down enemies.
