Hitmonkey or Deadpool?

Well, I suppose most of us saw the announcement trailer for Deadpool. Despite my relative lack of knowledge of character, from what I've heard from other people, it was consistent with the character himself. Still, I can't shake off a feeling that this will be another God of War/DMC like game.

On the other hand, before the game was announced at SDCC, High Moon Studios put up a website for a Hit Monkey game. Now I know that that was a hoax, so my question to Bombcast is kind of wasted. Damn. Nevertheless, I feel like this is a bit of a missed opportunity. While Hit Monkey is not a household name and will probably (almost definitely) sell less copies, there would be much more room for creativity in gameplay mechanics. Traversing the environment and executing enemy mooks with agility of a macaque sounds like fun to me.

So, what do you guys think? Is it a lost opportunity? Or will High Moon actually make an excellent Deadpool game?

Future seems rather dark and scary

Probably an age thing, but I am very afraid of graduating and entering this scary place that people call "real life". I am 18 right now, studying Law (2nd year) and I have no idea what I want to do in future. Some of my classmates are already setting up plans and seem to have a pretty clear idea about what they want to devote themselves to. Problem is, I don't. I lived a rather nice life so far, never having a job before. I am planning on getting one this year and hopefully that will calm me down (or depress the living shit out of me).

I definitely don't want to continue mooching off my parents, so them helping me after I graduate is out of the question. Might as well try to pay them back for all the money they paid for my tuition. I can't really discuss this with them because their response usually is something like this: "Stop whining and cheer the fuck up". I try to tell that to myself as often as I can, but so far it is not working.

What should I do? Do I need counselling before I go into murderous rage and start killing people? Or am I just being a whiny teenager and will eventually grow out of this? I hope that latter is going to happen.
