Sorry, but nothing about this game looks impressive.

Posted by Mystyr_E

so is this gonna be a "Too Human" kind of suck or an "Eternal Darkness" kind of awesome?

Posted by Warchief

was Eternal Darkness just like the only time they got their shit together and made a good game?

honest question.

It's Too Human level, I'm calling it.
 
The X-men RPG you always wanted...except you can't make your own mutant....
 
Like really? How easy would it have been to insert a Mutant Editor for your character and have everybody super excited over your game? And they still messed that up. No I don't want to play as your fan-fiction mutant, sorry dude.

This game looks bad.

@Doctorchimp: Exactly. When I first heard about this game, I envisioned a "Design your mutant and his powers" and I was excited. Then, I heard it was "Oh, no...pick from these three mutants and from these three power sets." AND THE CHARACTERS AND POWERS AREN'T EVEN INTERESTING! It's insanely aggravating to see the ball get dropped this badly. But, I suppose I shouldn't pass judgement until, at the very least, a demo is out.

Dyack can just talk about a game and make it sound awesome...even if it's not

The "voice acting" parts made me laugh.

"deep rpg elements" 
- 3 set characters to choose from. 
facepalm.

Agreed this is exactly what I wanted. Playing as your own created character with custom powers has a huge appeal..Why they think we want to play as a set character like this is beyond me.

(although for the record, Too Human was awesome).

Can't stand videos like this where the developers straight up lie about the things they have done never being done before in a video game. Did these guys not play Infamous?

I wish this was good. I really do...

I kind of wish it was like Transformers: War for Cybertron that had two campaigns. One for each side of the conflict. It'd be cool if you could chose from several of the actual awesome characters from either side. I'm not really interested in the new mutants they've shown here.

Too early to really tell though. Could be fun. Yet, I'd be way more interested if I could play as Wolvy, Cyclops, or Magneto. How awesome would that be?

What an unambitious piece of shit.  You can't even design your own mutant?  Fuck off.

A punk-goth chick, a Cole MacGrath ripoff complete with Amp, or a douchey jock. 
 
CONSIDER THIS PRE-ORDERED. /sarcasm

Posted by MayorFeedback

Wow, this looks really rotten. A licensed game from the makers of Too Human? What could possibly go wrong!

Posted by Mumrik

Everything they just said sounded bad... They're talking it up as if it had Bethesda level character customization, but it really sounds like it is extremely limited and everything but creative. Why would I want powers that already exist? Make up something new...

Posted by Jolt92

I wanted to customize my own mutant, what the fuuuuuuuuuuuuck. What a bummer.

Particle effects look like dogshit.

Posted by PimblyCharles

Wow all I have to say is Emma Frost's boobies

Posted by crusader8463

Looks like it could be good, but my biggest problem with the game is the costumes. They have all the real heroes running around in traditional old school super hero style costumes, but then the player character is just some generic buff dude bro wearing a shirt and jeans. It looks stupid next to each other.

Posted by DonChipotle

X-Men is a dumb comic and this game looks like dumb fun so I don't see how this can go wrong.

They made  Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain too.

sucker punch was TERRIBLE

Posted by femtoRgon

"Never before have you been able to choose different powers and different selections in a game like X-Men destiny"....  Really?  What about, I don't know, just about every game like it.  And are they really trying to impress with the fact that they hired voice actors and used motion capture?  That's not impressive, that's standard.  I assume a game like this will do that in the same way I assume they will have developed functionality to save my game.  It's just adequate.  Although I certainly doubt the overall game will be praised as highly as adequate, if this is any indication at all.

Oh, hi Denis!

Posted by emem

It actually looks better than what I was expecting, but it probably won't be the next Arkham Asylum.

Posted by TorMasturba

The moment I saw Denis Dyack I was turned off.

Oh well...

Posted by BravoJade

This looks *extremely* generic. I can't believe they'd choose to show off what they did.

Posted by JohnPaulVann

Why the FUCK is the graphics technology so bad? Don't make sense.

"Never before have you been able to choose different powers and selections like X-men Destiny for a Marvel License."

It's not lying, it's marketing spiel.

Edited by xtafxfoulfellow

Nothing about this game looks impressive or innovative. Graphics look like ass, the gameplay looks like ass, and the concept is like the 5th time I've heard "choose your own powers based off of X-Men powers". . . and their mo-cap ain't got shit on Uncharted.

Posted by jasondesante

This is all so generic.  No wonder Silicon Knights are failing as a developer, they aren't very good.  
  
Generic trailer about nothing. 
 
Generic looking game.

They are talking generically about normal things like Mo Cap and how they like it, but arent saying interesting that theyre doing with it besides simply using it.
 
Silicon Knights should be called Generic Co.

Posted by Bobojim

No matter how much they are gonna buff this game up, it's gonna suck soo bad :-D

Posted by SgtGrumbles

This looks pretty by the numbers, and FINALLY a game about choice, been waiting for one of those.

Posted by spanko

This game looks terrible in every way. I'm not just saying that to be an edgy dick either. When they announced this I got excited, an Mass Effect styled X-Men game? Fuck yes! But this is one of the worst looking games I have ever seen. All the cool shit they talk about in this video is meaningless once you see 30 seconds of game footage.

Posted by Razputin

Wait, so I'm not designing my own character? That sucks BAD, especially considering that the ones created by the developers are so typical.

Posted by I_smell

It's funny they showed the Heroes guy, cos I was just thinking "why don't they make the main character a mutant who absorbs other mutant's powers by hangin out with them?".

Y'know... If I WAS MAKIN an X-men game...

Posted by MacEG

I feel like this game needs more polish? Something about this game doesn't look/feel right. Does anyone else feel this?
Posted by Bestostero

this game depresses me

Posted by GristleMcThornbody

Dammit, couldn't you at least have given us a basic skin editor to go along with all 3 body types? A few rudimentary tools to make something original for my character? Pick the color of my costume? Come on people, if you are not going to let me play as a character I am already a fan of, at least let me make one that I like...  Have they heard of DC Online?
 
Maybe there is still more to this game we are not seeing yet?  Is there a chance that picking powers might allow you to customize your character more?

Posted by MisterMouse

man, I dont feel any connection with any of the three playable characters... just nothing there.

Posted by zombie007

Looks worse than terrible.

Posted by cavemantom

I don't even know where to start, so I'll leave all the commentary on how bad this looks to everyone else.
 
What I want to focus on is the moronic use of the word "destiny." It's crazily common, but this game in particular really prods at my nerves.
 
By definition, "destiny" denotes predetermination. It's impossible to "choose your destiny." If it's destiny, then it's going to happen regardless of your choices- that's what destiny is.

Posted by baron_calamity

Ok, this game looks terrible but I'll try to keep an open mind. It might end up being better than expected. The story and the set pieces could completely turn this game around.

That said. Why can't someone other than Activision and Sega have the Marvel license? The games they have been producing for the past several years haven't been AAA. not even close. Except for the original Marvel Ultimate Alliance and the Capcom games, Marvel games this generation have been very disappointing.

Nothing gets me hyped about a game like "Rich Content"  .  Hell yeah Dennis Dyack,  just like in Too Human.  That game was full of "Rich Content".  Can't wait to hear what they blame their failures on this time around.  Will it be the engine?  Will it be the License?  Will it be pressure from Activision?   Only time will tell, but they better not lose that "Rich Content" experience that I'm looking for.

Posted by Godzilla_Sushi

Yeah, I've said it before, I really want to play as the characters I know. I don't want to make the angsty teenage X-Men and play alongside Wolverine or Magneto. I just want to be the characters I know.

Posted by RipTheVeins

3:23-43 was some of the worst bullshitting I've ever seen. Twenty seconds of Denis Dyack pretending he was saying something meaningful, but if you actually think about the words coming out of his mouth he said absolutely nothing.

He could of summed it up by saying "bullshit: it's what sets this game apart."

Edited by vinsanityv22

I think this game looks cool and sounds promising. I doubt it'll be Infamous-meets-Deus Ex or Mass Effect (how cool would that be, though? I hope Phosphor's Awakened becomes that game), but it should be pretty good. 
 
It just looks really dumb having the X-Men, in some of their most....colorful outfits, next to those two generic doofus'. I mean, honestly - who isn't gonna choose the cool looking asian chick? The other two guys, doing their best to be the blandest they can be, REALLY contrast with the yellow/blue X-Men designs. Silicon Knights shouldn't play up the whole "choice" thing when they omitted a character creator from the beginning of the game. That is a really, really dumb decision. 
 
At the very least, they should've put in loads of customizable "armor" pieces, so you could take blandy no.1 or blandy no.2 and dress them up in a unique outfit. But to expect those guys to fit in with the rest of the mutants when all they're wearing are jeans and t-shirts is moronic. I don't know if it's Activision, Silicon Knights, or Marvel's call, but it was a dumb one.

Posted by Lydian_Sel

Conceptually I think this game is fine, if you wanna play as wolverine there's plenty of other games to satisfy you, but the actual look of this game is just so cruddy and dull, really generic looking. 
 
It's a Silicon Knights project so I'm hoping something nuts comes out of this, but otherwise it just looks kinda dull.
