    Hulk wasn't technically new either, since you could download him onto the 360.

    With them following the Civil War plot, I'm assuming we'll finally get to play some cool villians through the Thunderbolts.

    Bullseye, Venom, Green Goblin, and Songbird FTW. :^:

    Don't forget Penance...he's powered by emo.


    I've been trying to forget him since he's become Emoball. It spits on two things: The history of Speedball, and it spits on a character that already had that name...the much cooler Penance of Generation X fame.

    If they include Iron Fist, I'll be happy. I read through one of the recent trade paperbacks of him, and I'm really liking it.

    So Civil War sucks? I don't keep up on comics much, just that there's apparently some weird guy named Quesadilla who is RUINING COMICS FOREVAR~~~!!!1one and apparently they decided Spider Man needed to be 15 years old again?



    What's the Release Date on this?

    Eh, I wouldn't say it sucked, but it didn't sit well with a lot of people for various reasons. I was sort of ok with it, but it didn't really do much for me. But clone Thor was pretty lame. But it did spawn some interesting ideas and other comics that were pretty good.

    As for the Spider-Man situation:
    Spoiler:

    There have actually been some good stories after OMD, but...well, how it happened and why it happened was, um, stupid.

    Yeah, as much as I love the comic characters, this is the kinda shit that keeps me from ever actually reading them and following them seriously. I'll stick with the video games and movies that borrow ideas from them and generally have less complete retardation of the storylines. Not always though.

    Spider-Man's Brand New Day is probably the worst thing Marvel's done in 10 years, so it's probably not fair to judge them all for that. There's plenty of good stuff that could be recommended though.

    In Marvel, anyways. All of DC's good stuff seems to be in bad selling books that get canceled after 25 issues.

    M:UA co-op was great. I've run through the hardest difficulty a couple times with three other people and it's the most fun I've had with co-op next to L4D. I'm very excited about this one.

    The original Thunderbolts would be better than the new ones, though. Citizen V, Songbird, Moonstone, and Techno would be a great team.

    Reasons why Marvel can still do things right, summed up in three bullet points:

    1. Annihilation
    2. Nova
    3. Guardians of the Galaxy



    Oh, and my most requested character in M: UA2 is Nova! Wooo! :D

    It's because you can combine powers in the game for major damage!

    They really need to stick with cel shading for these superhero games. It just works so much better given the way the characters have looked.

    Like Ultimate Spider-Man was what comic book games should have taken cues from.

    Where are you finding it? Gamestop doesn't even bother listing it anymore.

    What was the diff between Gold and non-gold? Just the DLC?

    I bought the basic edition for $10 used and got the DLC for I think $5. So go that route.

    Gamestop usually has tons of normal copies.

    DLC is $10 for all 8 characters, so if the regular copy is over $10 less than the Gold Edition, thats the better way to go.

    The Wikipedia page says this would 'continue from the Secret War saga into ... Civil War'. As a non-comic aficionado only marginally aware of the 'history', what does that quote mean?

    Ok well, Secret War was this mini where Nick Fury led a few heroes on this covert mission into Latveria to overthrow it because whoever was leading Latveria at the time, while Doom was like in Hell I think, was supplying supervillains with advanced technology. Then other stuff happened which led to Nick Fury being removed from SHIELD and going underground.

    I guess it means that maybe like the first mission is supposed to be Secret War, then that will lead into Civil War later. But really Secret War and Civil War don't have that many connections aside from heavy SHIELD involvement.

    Secret War was a short mini that involved Nick Fury putting together a team of heroes to covertly invade Latveria, as whoever it was who was in charge at the time had been equipping all the various tech-based villains. It ended with the political fallout getting Fury removed from command of SHIELD. I'm not sure what impact it really had on Civil War, or anything, other than the fact that between the Secret and the Civil Wars Maria Hill was director of SHIELD (Tony Stark from then til Secret Invasion, and Norman Osborn now).


    Edit: I feel like Schide and I both read the same vague, slightly confusing story!

    Considering we both posted nearly the same summary, I'd sure say so.

    Well, Secret War only included a handful of heroes, so it should work well as an opening act if that's what it is. But Civil War included pretty much every hero and villain so it should work well as a framing story for the inclusion of all the characters that will be in there.

    I suppose I can't really argue with that. But it seemed to me that Civil War was more 'cerebral' and wouldn't lend itself well to scads of superhumans and villains battling it out in mixed teams. Might as well just come up with your own story if you want to do that.

    Saying it's based on Civil War screams 'we are lazy game writers' to me. I'm still interested, sure, but I expect two different storylines depending on which side the player chooses (maybe even an alternate or branching paths or something). Anything less would seem disappointing, somehow.

    There was basically nothing in Secret War. It was 5 issues and could have been done in 2.

    The whole project was just an effort to trick people into thinking it was somehow related to the Secret Wars miniseries of the 80s.

    To be fair, Deadpool does spend a good part of Civil War duct taped to a chair.

    I doubt they'll be cutting anyone, though.
