So I know its a game, but its comic book game, so I figured we should talk about it a bit.

First off the trailor makes me giddy:
http://www.marvelultimatealliance.com/

the webpage has some cool stuff on it, including announced characters and if you join up for the VIP thing(its free) you can get to trivia and make you own banner ads and such. Worth a look.[/url]

    I hear some characters could be downloads off of the X-Box marketplace etc.

    Silver Surfer is apparently only unlockable (for the entire game) by preordering.

    edit: So, uh, does anyone have a VIP member invite for me?

    Would it be to much to ask for them to make comic movies just like this trailer without the shitty actors and the live action? That was awesome.

    That trailer was rad. Thor was the best part. I really like his voice.

    Also Doom.

    And I heart Nick Fury.

    616 Nick Fury is cooler than Ultimate Nick Fury.

    Ultimate Nick is also cool, but he pales (lol) in comparison to 616 Fury.

    If X-Men Legends is any indication, we'll see multiple costumes for damn near every character, so we'll probably see an Ultimate Fury skin.

    Nightcrawler kicking some ass and more DOOM.

    All Marvel cartoons/films should be like this. These devs really get Marvel characters.

    It looks amazing, but the voice acting is pretty bad.

    august on
    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    thats the best nightcrawler i've seen in a while, but really what did he expect going into Doom's castle by himself?

    I love that trailer.

    Also, since Doom kinda starts the trailer off with "HE'S AWAKE SEAL THE CASTLE NOW" or whatever, I think it would be safe to assume he was captured.

    Oh well, if it's a PS2 thing too it's probably different.
    I preordered the 360 version. I want to do 4 player coop.

    The impression I got as far as how the preorder code works is that anyone can unlock Silver Surfer by playing through the game, but the code lets you use him from the very beginning without the effort.

    Man, I really WANT to preorder this for the Wii, but I dunno if I'll have the cash monies for one when it comes out. And I'd hate to buy the game before the system.

    I really wish there was a GC version. I have both X-Men Legends I and II for it. Also, I wish Nightcrawler was playable and that they'd update the character list sometime soon.

    Can't wait to play as Ghost Rider and Strange, though.

    These games usually use the Ultimate versions as templates. So, seeing 616 Nick Fury made me very happy.

    That is a fucking lie. 616 Fury is perhaps the biggest badass in the Marvel U.

    He fought in World War 2 for crissakes. He's frigging immortal.

    I think he should have been the Fury in the tournament.

    There's only going to be 24 playables out of a cast of 140. And I swear I heard he wasn't playable, but I can't remember where.

    24 characters is a lot. In my day, you'd only have two playable characters and, aside from being different colors, they'd play exactly the same.

    And we liked it, and fought over who got to be the blue guy!

    Personally, I loved them a lot, though some badass characters take forever to be awesome (Like Magneto, in 2).

    They require having friends to play with though. It just isn't as FUN to play them through single player, but is still very doable.

    Spectre, can you go on one of your tangents and explain why 616 version is cooler then the Ultimate version? Your Aquaman one was brilliant.
