Just a mini poll just before the release next week
Are you going Buy Deadpool
This game looks freaking terrible.
Deadpool is a terrible character and I find it annoying when people try to retcon a history for him that makes him seem like he's in any way interesting or that his creation was a stroke of genius.
He was a terrible, poorly designed character who was brought into the xmen frachise as a stock Rob Liefield dime-a-dozen comic book character of the early 90's. His "breaking the fourth wall" "humor" isn't novel, it's the work of unfunny comic book creators trying to be "funny" on command which essentially means that they break the fourth wall out of nervous grasp for uninspired comedy. It's the domain of every bad high school pep-rally skit and underdeveloped tv commercial. Bad comic writers would do the exact same thing for Spiderman and Xmen specials.
Madman was great. Freakazoid was great. Deadpool is just a bad character who devolved to the point that they had no idea what to do with him except ape other, better, material from people who are actually talented.
Nah not really. There's more to the character then what he is today, but most people don't really see or get that. Read Joe Kelly's run. THAT is Deadpool.
Also Liefield created Cable and he's far from a shit character. Just because characters don't start out great, doesn't mean they don't realize their potential under different writers.
As for the game it looks fine. Something you play for the weekend, enjoy it, and never play again probably. Nothing wrong with that. This is that sort of "B" tier game that Jeff always says he misses.
Absolutely not. New Deadpool is a fucking travesty. If this was 90's Deadpool? Then probably. But Daniel Way Deadpool makes me want to vomit.
The only redeeming quality that I see for this game is that is has Domino in it. She gets left out of fucking everything X-Men related. Kind of understandably from a video game point of view as her mutant power is a impossible to even put into gameplay terms.
I have to admit that some parts of that trailer made me chuckle.
Was just gonna post this. Thought it was pretty funny, but seems most won't care because of how he's written nowadays. I still think he's fine, just not as good as used to be or has the potential to be.
