Super stoked

Where did this come from? 
 
Want.

#4 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

This has potential :)

Also, GT watermark :p

Man, I totally thought they'd canned this.

#6 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

If only Gambit was a playable character...

#7 Posted by Redbullet685 (6025 posts) -

Looks pretty awesome. I really liked X-men Legends.

#8 Posted by SkinnyBlue (320 posts) -

I want it.

#10 Posted by ballsnbayonets (155 posts) -

i want to be juggie
#11 Posted by Lydian_Sel (2480 posts) -

From a superficial glance, this seems to run into the same problem that DC Online did where you're forced to play side by side with the characters you'd rather be playing as. Hopefully there's something to this game.

hopefully this isnt just too human with a xmen skin.... i got a feeling it is

#13 Edited by BabyChooChoo (4289 posts) -

I see no Psylocke. Lord Synergy es muy not pleased.
 
(I still want this game though...)

So, is this a make your own X-Men game?  I don't recognize the three highlighted characters in this trailer.  I recognize Cyclops, Wolvering, Gambit, Mystique, Nightcrawler, etc... but the girl with the bandana, the guy in the football tee-shirt and the other one aren't familiar to me. 

#15 Posted by MatPaget (1113 posts) -

I hope this game is still early in development because, cosmetically, it doesn't look good.

#16 Posted by JohnPaulVann (209 posts) -

Why does this game look and animate like SHIT? Oh, yeah, because SK is developing it.

lol. Cyclops' outfit looks like Kick Ass!

Yeah, that's was his old threads from the late 70's early 80's.

I wanna play a good X-Men game.

#20 Posted by Scotto (1171 posts) -

This game has serious potential to be awesome. I really like the decision to go with the classic character looks, instead of some brooding, gritty "real world" look.

They're meant to be all-new mutants that you select from and grow into whatever you want them to be. You won't be playing as any of the trademark X-Men, but there'll be mutant points and costumes that can earn and level up with which'll essentially make you a clone of many of the well known cast; similar to how DCU has the ability for you to have your own character, but can still be meshed to strongly resemble your favourite. 
 
Kinda sucks why they don't just let you play as the actual X-Men, but it's justified with how the story progresses through your decisions and the morality choices to make associated with the Brotherhood and the X-Men.

Animation looks off, but it looks like it could be above average.

#23 Posted by Aleryn (704 posts) -

Phew, was worried it was another bad MMO.  Looks promising, now.

#24 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7613 posts) -

I'm not usually one to complain about graphics, but jesus, this looks like a PS2/Xbox era game. Secondly, where is the character customisation? The concept of playing as your own custom X-man through a story-driven game is really compelling.. playing as a 12 year old goth or a football jock is not.

#25 Posted by andrewf87462 (547 posts) -

Okay that looks awful, i'll pass thanks, next!
#26 Posted by PenguinDust (12450 posts) -
@Abyssfull:  Thanks for that information.  The trailer really didn't give me any idea what was going on, but now I have a better grasp on things.  Could be cool.  We'll see.
#27 Posted by Nocall (353 posts) -

graphics look pretty dated but if the story stuff pulls together as well as it seems it is this could be a great game. 
 
also, nightcrawler's costume was awesome.

#28 Posted by BeautifulSpaceCowboy (601 posts) -

I want this to be good.

#29 Posted by RVonE (4605 posts) -

Who is the girl supposed to be?

Also, I hope the graphics just look like shit because the game is actually played from a more zoomed out perspective like in MUA.

You know what? Forget this game; I could go for a new MUA.

And then decimation happened.

#31 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

Should've been X-Men Legends 3, not this crap

It also doesn't help that instead you get shoehorned into 3 different pre-generated mutants.
 
How easy was this game to get right? Why not make a robust Mutant creator for your PC?
#33 Posted by Asmundergunderson (32 posts) -

Well, at least it's not a limp First Class tie-in.

Bet that's coming though.

#34 Posted by core1065 (543 posts) -

it looks like a MMO and that's not sating much.

#35 Posted by Nexas (625 posts) -

Looks like a PS2 game.

#36 Posted by KingRedWing (44 posts) -

So.... X-men MMO?

#37 Posted by advocatefish (355 posts) -

Aw snizzles.

#38 Posted by VicRattlehead (1398 posts) -

this game does not look pretty, wolverine and cyclops in particular looked bad

Legends 3 would've been awesome.
#41 Posted by Terrents (292 posts) -

wait... did that hint to character creation? yesssssssss
#42 Posted by chikin_n_rofls (138 posts) -

a wild gametrailers watermark appeared!

#43 Posted by Godzilla_Sushi (1084 posts) -

Definitely not a pretty looking game. Also, can I just get the Wolverine game from years back with X-Men characters? Longer? I don't want to make my own guy. :(

I want to have a bloody good time and fight big giant bosses!

This trailer was either too early....or that's it. Pretty underwhelming for the awesome franchise that freaking X-Men is......

#44 Edited by Xpgamer7 (2377 posts) -

This could be good but I'm really worried about the franchise effect on this game.

#45 Posted by fox01313 (5061 posts) -

Sweet, seeing how the X-men Legends games won't work on the 360, this seems like a great fit to take that slot.

#46 Posted by MeatSim (10768 posts) -

What's with the GameTrailers watermark?

#47 Posted by MisterMouse (3540 posts) -

I feel like that could be a lot of fun!

#48 Posted by TheChaos (1158 posts) -

So it's like some kind of X-Men RPG with moral choices?

Someone's gonna have words with Undeadpool and where he got this trailer from...

#50 Posted by Hellstrom (199 posts) -

Looks fun, I hate X-men though, they're kinda lame except for Wolverine.
