    The Carnage DLC is out though, right? Or do they wait to unveil all the DLC characters to release the DLC?

    I believe they're releasing the DLC in character packs. They're working on the first one currently, and Carnage is the first revealed character in the pack.

    Has anyone had achievements totally bug out? I've unlocked customers for all but the spoiler character you get after beating the game, but no achievement. It also shows I've beaten 14/15 bosses without revival and no achievement for that either (I've only played on Super Heroic or Legendary).

    You know what this means right? Carnage is gonna be an upcoming character is some marvel movie... I'm thinkin Spider-Man 4 (he was already rumored) or the Venom movie.

    He's just such an odd, outta place character. He's not all that popular. He had no role in the events of the civil war. And in current lore he's been dead for a while. There is almost certainly a catch somewhere.

    Could just be that they assumed that people who knew little about Marvel might find his design cool. I mean, for someone who knows little about Marvel aside from having watched a few of the movies he probably looks more interesting than a few of the characters in game.

    Pretty much this. There's nothing to this decision beyond A) Casual Spider fans know who Carnage is and B) Aesthetics. Carnage is the kind of guy that would be fun to watch in motion, in game.

    Carnage does less than nothing for me. I got my fill in the 90's. I'd have been far more interested if they took any given one of the characters whose models are already in-game and made them playable. I mean, She-Hulk and Hercules! But, whatever.

    You know what is crazy about this game, and I hope they patch? The friend I usually play it with unlocked everyone by playing single-player, but in multiplayer they were re-locked. That, or he did something really stupid without realizing it. Also! It only lets you unlock costumes with the character being played by whoever is signed into an XBL account, and only for that person. Or something. All I know is that none of the kills I got counted towards Iron Fist's alternate costume. It's a really oddly obtuse system for a game that's designed to be played with other people.

    Not a bug, that's intentional design. The game only unlocks characters (and character costumes) for a single save, unlike MUA1. Which means you will never have any character universally unlocked, you can't start a game from level 1 on Normal or Heroic and play as Thor. Playing Thor on a new playthrough is only possible on a Legendary playthrough post-Normal or Heroic.

    It's retarded but whatcha gonna do.

    Yeah, that was probably my biggest disappointment with the game. I was hoping the patch they're working on would fix that, but after re-reading it I realized it just allows people to play on the other difficulty levels with their leveled up characters.

    Kind of wish they would meet us half way and allow the all character cheat to be used with out disabling saves. At least if a person has a completed file anyway.

    They've accidentally revealed all the DLC characters in this pack- the list is, Carnage, Psylocke, Magneto, Black Panther, and Cable.

    There's also going to be at least two new sim missions. You can see some footage at 6:26 here: http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/marvelultimateallianceiifusion/video/6233249/today-on-the-spot

    They've said they'll continue to release DLC as long as there is sufficient demand. Though I'm not sure if they specified what type of DLC.

    Black Panther, Magneto, and Psylocke do nothing for me. They also need more friggin unlockable costumes. What made them think, "I am sure people hate using different costumes. Let's limit them to just two."

    Really? You're throwing in Black Panther on association basis? Everyone has mutant associations. They're a huge part of the marvel universe, even after Decimation. I feel like this gets complained about way too much. Powers is powers, who gives a shit how they got them when you're playing?

    It's like playing a DC beat-em-up and complaining about all the Justice League characters.

    It was never meant to follow the story of the comic closely, it was loosely based on CW.

    I'd rather have a wide variety to play than just set to the characters in that story. Plus the story is horrible no matter which media writes it.

    Absolutely. It's not like I'm damning Spider-Man for fighting alongside Wolverine at times. Black Panther is most relevant right now for marrying one of the most popular X-Men. It's hard to disassociate him from Storm.

    Eh, I'd just rather not have repeats of characters from previous games (Psylocke, Magneto) when there were plenty of NPC heroes that I've not gotten to play as in the previous games. I know I might be in the minority, but if they released She-Hulk, Wonder Man, Havok and a few others, I'd gobble those up. Cable is a plus, though.

    I have a serious boner for this game. And I don't even know shit about Marvel aside from the various movies. I was strictly Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters, TMNT, Power Rangers kind of guy growing up. This game is making me wish that could have been different. :( . However, I did start reading Deadpool comics though after I playing through this for the first time. It reminds me of the old school arcade beatemups in all the right ways. (Simpsons, TMNT, X-men? There was an Xmen style coin-op back in the day too right?) That plus the RPG elements of course. Whoever thought up fusion attacks is a genius. The first time I saw Spider man suck in all those baddies while Iron Man blasted away at it my jaw hit the floor. I can't wait to see where else the decide to take the franchise.

    We sell fights and get into products.

    Only non-fighting game I've ever got to play him in is X-Men Legends 2 for the PSP.

    Also pretty happy about Psylocke and Carnage, since they're rare as playable characters as well.

    Explainnnnnnnnnn!

    I think I read about it, but I am not sure.

    Basically, unlock all the characters for whatever faction you choose in your first and second runs through, right? That is what I am doing so far. I chose registration the first time and I have already unlocked all the registration character's costumes.

    What they really need to do is just release a shit ton of characters as DLC. Also, new stories to use new characters. And a battle mode of sorts.

    edit: Just beat it. What a terribly lackluster ending. Not really spoiler worthy, but...

    Well, as for what happened to me - somehow, the game unlocked Storm's alt costume but it shows she has zero kills and when I look at the Review menu for the Alternate Costume dossiers, the one for her costume still shows a "Locked" even though it shows I've completed every heroic deed for her.

    Basically the game can't tell I've unlocked every costume, and it seems the only way to fix it would be to start all over. I'm hoping the DLC characters will count toward the 23 and I can get it that way, since it's the only one left! It sounds like other people have had this glitch as well, along with a more common glitch affecting Undefeated Heroes (which also hit me but fortunately fixed itself later).

    I think the bosses in this game were fine :) Although, did we ever get an explanation for anything that happened in the end if the game, as far as I recall on normal mode you learned nothing about the plans of the final bad guys. Perhaps on the hardest mode there is a secret ultimate boss?

    Your puny weapons are useless against me
