Kick-Ass Gets a Video Game

Posted by inferiorego (21226 posts) - - Show Bio


Coming this April to a Playstation 3 or iPhone near you... A game so brutal, so violent, it will blow... your... mind. IGN reported that WHA Entertainment is giving Playstation Network and iPhone fans a  chance to play as their favorite character in the Kick-Ass comic in the upcoming game "Kick-Ass"

 Based on the upcoming movie of the same name, Kick-Ass will be a 3D action game starring the teenage super heroes. There will be three playable characters: Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy. 

This won't be a new adventure for the hyper-violent team though, it will be based on the upcoming movie's storyline.

 three teenagers are fed up with the depravity they see every day and decide to become super heroes. Players will travel through multiple environments in New York City, beating up thugs and bosses along the way. In addition to the main quest there will also be sub-missions and mini-games to check out. Two players can cooperate locally and WHA Entertainment promises plenty of gore. 

So bust out that dusty extra PS3 controller and invite a friend over, so you can decapitate random thugs across NYC.  

Some people may be upset that this is only downloadable content and not an actual game you have to drive out to the store to get. Think about it this way though. If the game ends up being mediocre, short, the controls suck, or just plain dumb and you have to spend $60 on it, there's going to be some major disappointment. If you're spending $10-$20 bucks on a game you know will be shorter than a $60 one, and it has a high chance of being mediocre, you won't be as mad. But who knows, maybe this could actually be a fun DLC game.  The game will be available April 15th for the Playstation Network and iPhone. Pricing is not available at this time.
 
What do you guys think? Is this going to rule? Or does it seem like something to pass on?

(a) Because hes in a kick ass video game? 
(b) If they was comeing out of his butt it would be wrong?
(c) A clever ploy to throw off Hit Girls aim? 
(d) Firecracker zippers are all the craze?

Hmm...the game is going to be based on the movie rather than the comic? I don't know about that.....

A statment as a question is still a question.An those were the pg 13 answers. I self editied the more adult ones.Good quote by the way. 
Tho im more worried why kick ass has fire comeing from his forehead as well in that pic.With the sign Franks in the background its down right scary. 
 
By the way http://movies.ign.com/articles/107/1071598p1.html has a review of kick ass movie. one minor spoiler tho .They gave it 4 outa 5.

@Marshal Victory: 
thats a good rating. im there eitherway. read the comics so there not much to spoil.
i think it will translate well. as for translating to a video game...eh. too each their own,
doesnt excite me. the action figures are really sweet though. this is going to be huge.
 
the fire from his head is his telekinetic powers of course.

I don´t have a PS3 but this game doesn´t sound sooo interesting. I think I won´t miss anything although Kick-Ass is great.
