Are we EVER going to get a Wonder Woman video game???

#1 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3800 posts) - - Show Bio

We've yet to see it, but I REALLY think we should 
flight, super strength, cool weapons= I think they'd make for a great action adventure game 
and it'd be so cool to explore Themyscira  
what do all you other Wondy fans think? 
would people buy it? 
What should the story be? 
what villains or other heroes would you like to see?
#2 Posted by MrDirector786 (43647 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes. I think that there should be a video game. I think the story could be based off of the first story from Wonder Woman volume 2 with Wonder Woman's origin and Ares wanting to start a nuclear war to annihilate the Earth and she goes to Boston where she met that Harvard professor to help her and all. Some of the bosses of the game could be Deimos, Phobos, Decay, and Ares could be the final boss. Now the biggest issue I think about making one would be whether or not people would buy it. I think DC should first try to make Wonder Woman more popular doing whatever they can like the movie. Or they could use the game itself to try to make her more well-known.

It's a nice idea.

I think it could be really cool. You could start out with just the tiara, and use it to slash at close range, or for a ranged attack. Then you grab your lasso, which would open up a lot of new moves you could do. Then as the game goes on you could unlock bows, shields, axes, swords, ect. And then near the end of the game you get the Golden Eagle armor. Their could be parts where you can rip turrets off the wall/ground/ect. and use them on enemies. And you could have some kind of power gage thing that builds up and lets you do crazy power attacks like grabbing someone and flying into space, and then slamming them into the ground. Or shoot lighting out of her bracers for an AOE attack that zaps everything around her.  
 
The possibilities are endless.

she was my favorite character to play in Justice League Heroes I maxed her out before any of the others. Perhaps one the movie comes out...

@Lovingdamnation:
Yeah, they'd surely make a crappy game based on the movie.

@Lovingdamnation: that's exactly why I posted this
she's got such great potential for a versatile game   
hook her up to the Havok  physics engine and watch her mess the whole world up
super strength and a lasso?
that sounds like FUN!

oh if only we had the technology to make our own games

Well, we actually do have the technology to make our own games, but not the way we want the games to be.

You know what, I played Batman Arkham Asylum, Spider Man Shattered Dimensions, God of War 3, and I found SOOOO much material that could prove useful for a WW game. 
They could create something similar to the Detective Mode or Spider Sense and call it "The Sight of Athena"  that lets her see her enemies through walls and pillars.  
Her martial skills could let them use a unique Amazonian combat system, which utilizes the lasso similar to how web-lines work for spider-man, or use the tiara as a melee dagger or a ranged "batarang" sort of thing. 
They could use JMS' story line which is set in the streets of New York. I believe such a dark, gritty and urban setting would attract gamers and create astounding visuals and provide obstacles; at the same time helping mythical creatures and gods to stand out more in the environment among the street minions.  They could also alternate to different environments like Themyscira, or a dungeon or cave involving Circe or Cheetah. Dr. Psycho could be used in the background, who is threatening Wonder Woman's allies.

Depending on what storyline they adopt, they could use the WW contest on Themyscira as a tutorial. You get to have sparring sessions with your fellow Amazons and learn different combat techniques, preparing you for the actual contest in which you put your skills to the test.

:) put enough action and great graphics, and it should do quite well.

A Wonder Woman game sounds great, but truthfully, unless the right dev house gets put in charge of it, it probably would be sub par at best.  
 
Not many game devs seem to get a grasp on hero games, look at Superman 64. 
 
Sorry to be a downer.

@fenixREVOLUTION:  Which development team would you suggest? How about Unreal Engine? They managed to make Batman, right?
#18 Posted by King Saturn (225186 posts) - - Show Bio
it could be a good game...

@Batcrow: It's hard to say, Rock Steady had an unusually good grasp of what should be in a Batman game.  
 
Unreal engine would be fine, unless they made their own. I'd say give the game to Rock Steady just to be safe and hope for the best.

Oh, and this could be the cutscene for the first level/tutorial. 
     
 
As well as the final confrontation...

A Wonder Woman game would ultimately end up being a God Of War clone, but with flying.
 
Whether it'd end up as a good or bad GoW clone is up for debate.

@ThanosIsMad: I'd rather see all the mythos in different environments. Something to change things up. NO-ONE has taken advantage of the Greek warrior theme although Xena and God of War character Kratos have. 
They should really take advantage of all these examples and bring different elements to create something innovative and memorable.

The movie has to come first. There is no WAY anyone would produce a Wonder Woman Video Game without having a MOVIE "pre-market" the game first

#25 Posted by Batcrow (232 posts) - - Show Bio
@WDW: That's true and all, but it should not be a game ADAPTATION of the movie. It should only be tied to the character. Because if its a counterpart to a movie, they have to wrap things up in time for the movie's release. With games like Batman Arkham  Asylum and Spider-man Shattered Dimensions, developers did not have to worry about anything except making a good game.

yeah I agree.... but what I mean is that the general public needs to see how cool Wonder Woman can be via a live action movie before they will feel comfortable developing it in my opinion. It can come a year after the movie and I agree should not be tied to the movie. But developer won't make a game like that because good games can cost a few million to develop and Wonder Woman has yet to establish herself as "cool" to the general public.... people just know her because of the costume.

 That's true. There needs to be more media representation to tell people who she is. A movie is definitely a great medium, but I feel that the TV show, if continued with, could show people different sides of her and find a direction for the movie.

yeah that's what I am hoping for! I really hope people like Wonder Woman in the TV show even if I hate it..... Would go a long way to getting the movie and a game done finally

@WDW:
agreed 
I think if the tv show is at all successful it will get Wonder Woman more face time with the general public 
a video game would be much more likely then

Those look pretty cool. Though I think Ares should look more like his comic-book counterpart with the blue armor and all just because I think it looks more awesome.
