I don't quite understand the hesitation here. It's Deadpool! Deadpool is awesome! It's a video game, those are awesome too! But if you think your money is better saved and spent on the next yearly iteration of that FPS you like or a hell of a lot of twizzlers, then go right ahead. It is your money afterall.

I personally can't wait to hang out with Wade and beat up on some bad dudes and dudettes. I never read any of Daniel Way's Deadpool, but I'm sure it will be just as good as his current comic. Hack N Slash games like this are beginning to become some of my favorites as of late. I loved Lollipop Chainsaw, and despite some frustrating boss battles, Metal Gear Rising was a really fun game. I'm hoping Deadpool delivers there and with the hilarity as well. Who am I kidding? Of course he will, he's Deadpool! (Deadpool in no way threatened to kidnap my family if I didn't give him good press. He also wants someone to pick him up some Taco Bell before replying.)

@vance_astro: Mmmmm about half of it was alright. Those Noir levels were teeeeeeeeeerrible, and so were some of the Ultimate ones.

@jamdamage: no. No offense intended towards him, but I think I would be more inclined to believe a game preview from Sara or Corey, as I know they both have more familiarity with games. That is, if I believed any game preview at all anymore, as they're pretty much universally positive, even for real stinkers. Aliens: Colonial Marines had tons of good previews, remember?

No, but so what?

I care about what gives me joy. If they could make him mega popular and keep what made him truly great, that'd be fine. It's not the popularity that bothers me. It's what they've reduced Deadpool to in order to gain that popularity. Granted, it's not as bad as it was when Marvel decided he needed a million titles AND guest appearances in 2009/2010/2011, but it's still pretty bad.

I gain nothing from him being popular at face value. I gain nothing from a band I like selling 10 million records. I need to quality of work to be good or it might as well not exist. Deadpool was always off-the-wall, but now he's the drunk girl at the party. Stumbling around, screaming about how drunk she is whilst all the while I'm just thinking, "Stop it. You're a mockery."

I think he'd be a better character if he was simply a reoccurring villain\rival of Wolverine like Sabretooth. I don't think there is a purpose for him being a solo anti-hero in the Marvel Universe. He seems out of place IMO.

I know what you mean. I used to think comic publishers cared as much about quality as they do revenue. Apparently not.

Marvel does, so I guess from their perspective they are doing a fine job with Deadpool.

This is Deadpool. If Activision messes THIS up they should never make Marvel Game again.

The game is being developed by High Moon Studios. It looks like they know what they're doing. I don't think the game will be terrible. It won't be anything innovative, new and amazing, but it will be a solid Deadpool game and I'm totally fine with that. The problem with Activision though is that they're vultures, who will try to milk the crap out of the game. They will offer you Deadpool's second katana as a pre-order exclusive and Deadpool's skirt costume as well additional bonus maps and stuff like that as DLC. They always do that and no matter how much the gamers hate such bad business practices they keep on doing it. A pity.

I don't expect it to be terrible. I'm just saying Deadpool should be an easy character to make a game for. I don't know about Activision being Vultures but they are definitely better than some companies when it comes to milking DLC.

@vance_astro: HMS made the last Transformers game, which was actually pretty enjoyable. It's a solid game, but nothing new to the genre, which always unfortunate, but at least it wasn't as big of a failure as the Activision Spider-Man games tend to be, yet they're mostly developed by second rate developers, so we will see. I have high hopes.

Activision = vultures, believe me.

They did it with Prototype 2, where you 'had' to pre-order the LIMITED pre-order-edition of the game, so that you wouldn't miss out content, which was free in the first game, which had more success than they expected it to have. So when you bought that LIMITED pre-order-edition blindly, since there were no reviews before the game came out (guess why), you realized that you never got any pre-order-bonus. Everything you got was the regular version of the game, where the LIMITED pre-order is only a CD key for you to unlock boring, repetetive side missions, so you can't even buy the game used, since then you would miss out few hours.

After that bullcrap they came up with more and more downloadable content: powers for the character, which were advertised as the typical powers of the character and more such stuff.

Activision may not be as evil as EA and Cashcom, but they as greedy and terrible as Ubisoft, maybe even worse.

When someone lies to my face and sells me lies, then that's the clear line for me. I'm never going to buy any Activision game new. Not even Deadpool. I'll wait few weeks and buy it used for 10-15 bucks less, I hope and use that saved money to buy the DLC, just because I love the character so much.

I don't think these companies are greedy. After I found out how much money it takes to even make a game for this gen of consoles, it kind of makes sense why so many companies milk the DLC. They need to make their money back. Also Activision's Spider-Man games were all good IMO, maybe we disagree on quality but they definitely weren't failures. People kept buying them enough for them to have made like 7-8 of them so I'd say Activision is doing pretty well on Spider-Man.

Yeah, because it's Spider-Man. Spider-Man stuff will always sell well. Even the terrible Spider-Man 3 movie made a lot of money and I hope that we both agree that the movie was in fact terrible.

AAA games cost 17-25 million dollars to develop and publish. That actually is not that much money, if you have the money they have. The actual problem why they abuse (not use) DLC to make more money is the amount of the money the actually get from one game. They don't get the full 60$. They get slightly less than half of that money. The rest goes to the manufactures, the retailers and so on.

Ways to fix all that and not 'steal' the money from the customer, by selling him already finished DLC content afterwards would either be to make deals with retailers and get an percentage of the used game sells (since publishers don't get anything from that money), or to come up with sponsors and make advertising in the game for it. I personally wouldn't mind playing a Deadpool game and seeing him drink a coke or a pepsi during a cutscene (depending on which company made more money). I wouldn't mind driving on Deadpools manly motorcycle through the city and seeing HUGO BOSS advertisiment or something like that. All of that is fine with me, if it saves me 10-20$ dollars in the long run.

It all depends on how the gaming will evolve. I personally think that one day games will only sell digitally. That way the publishers will get ALL of the money, or at least 90-95% of it. If they then still come up with DLC and other bad business practices, I'll stop being a passionate gamer.

Spider-Man 3 wasn't a good movie but unlike with the games, Activision keeps making them every year. If people didn't like them, they would have stopped making them by now. Gaming is a FAR different experience than watching a bad movie. Not only do games cost more than film admission but they require your cooperation and attention. The complaints I heard about the games is their repetitiveness, that not much changes between games but their so fun to begin with that to me personally and probably other people, that doesn't really matter much as long as the story changes between games. With the 3rd Spider-Man there is also the fact that the first two were good, why would anyone think the 3rd one wouldn't be? You don't know it sucks until see it. I saw the movie thinking it would be the best one yet, and it wasn't. It was complete garbage.

Companies aren't really "stealing" anything from the customers. DLC isn't mandatory. Not to mention the fact that the market for gaming is completely unbalanced and they have to do something to make the money back. THQ was publishing Saints Row. All 3 games were successful and the company still ended up going under. The pressure to produce top level material at a reasonable production cost is extreme in this current era. I don't think the publishers can negotiate percentages of used game sales as far as what they get back because I think that would take a huge chunk out of what the retailer gets and gaming retailers aren't what they used to be either. There aren't any gaming store franchises like there used to be. Gamestop seemingly gobbled them all up. Which tells me retailers weren't making that much money. Although I hate how there is so much unnecessary DLC and some that seemingly should have just been on the game in the first place, I can't blame these companies for wanting to make as much money as possible.

Neither can I, but that's still a problem to us - to the customers.

You need to understand that if they sell a game digitally they get the full amount of the money. If they ship the games, they get 25-27$ from the 60$ you would normally pay for the game. A great amount of that said money goes to the retailers and some of it even goes to the manufacturers of the consoles (Sony and Microsoft get a part of the money simply by providing the console).

When they sell you DLC, they earn that money directly. They don't have to share it with others. I personally don't mind DLC as long as it's done right. DLC done right would be visual stuff, since there are more than enough people who care about something like that. Let's take Injustice, the new DC fighting game as an example. I own it and I could buy costume packs, if I wanted to, but I personally don't care about them. What I do care about are additional characters, which are crucial to the gaming experience and they released Lobo by now and in two days they will also release Batgirl. It is very likely that they had these characters waiting on the side to release them later on and earn more direct money. 4$ per character are 4$ after all.

I understand that publishers are desperate and want money, money, money and more money, but they're abusing the system heavily and raping the wallets of their customers. They know that people hate bad business, yet they continue to do it. Some of them are charging money for additional difficulty modes. Some of them are charging for additional characters. Some of them are charging for real endings to a game. That's where it gets very questionable and for the most part also very annoying.

Does anyone know if T-Ray is going to be in this game? He was one of DP's bigger enemies.

On that note, I'm pumped for it. It's not trying to be anything that's revolutionary, and that's good. It's keeping it simple, while changing it up to fit Deadpool's style. And I appreciate it.

Definitenly going to preorder a copy.

I don't have a strong need to make a new thread, so I'll just post here. I enjoyed the game very much. I am not an avid gamer so if someone wants to say I am wrong, I'm okay with that. I think it's a fun game and everything. However, I am a bit disappointed. I want more story. I want more villains. Tasky isn't in the game. You barely see Domino, Psylocke, or Cable. I wanted T-Ray to be there. I just was like... okay... that was fun, but I WANT MORE.

I wish I could get the alternate skins. Can someone tell me how to get the alternate skins? Can I use them on campaign or no?

Does anyone care about this game?
