Voice still doesn't seem right...

Deadpool is supposed to be insane, not fucking obnoxious. This game seems to have completely missed what makes his personality so endearing.

I love Deadpool, I really do, but this looks pretty atrocious. The writing just screams trying too hard.

Plus that voice is just... no. Just no.

This could either be the worst or best possible game, looks to be leaning towards worst. But as stupid for stupid's sake as the trailer is, I still laughed >.<

To be fair, so do most of the comics.

I don't know much about Deadpool, but what I do know is that every word he utters isn't constantly breaking the fourth wall. Comedic timing doesn't seem to be this game's strong suit.

Looks like this game has the "Duke Nukem" Seal of Approval.

@chiablo: It appears to be a bizarre amalgamation of The Mask and Duke Nukem, with a Deadpool skin.

I'm confused as to why you guys think the voice is wrong. In many ways, Deadpool IS supposed to be obnoxious. The Joe Kelly series isn't really insane at all; at least, not in the way you want his voice to be. And, at this point, having heard so much of Nolan North doing Deadpool (Marvel vs Capcom 3, Hulk Vs,) I'd actually find it weird to go back.

But the writing is totally wrong. These trailers are awful. The game could well be better than the trailers, but I am of little faith.

Unfortunately, yeah. Giddily motorboating the fourth wall to death is par for the course in a lot of his appearances.

Deadpool USED to be a decent character, and then he became really popular and they started doing shit like the voice in his head.

I dont understand the hate, this is the character of deadpool. This is what it sounds like when you're not reading it. I was always lukewarm on Deadpool. I'm not surprised by the writing, sounds about right.

I'm gonna sound like a jerk. And I'm sorry.

Comic book games. Just, don't work. Having any expectation of a game based on a comic book being any good is just plain silly. Aside from Batman, which for some strange reason does well in games, film and tv shows. EXPLAIN THAT ONE!

That was Nolan North right? I kinda feel bad for him.

I think people forgot how long Deadpool was considered the worst book in all of comics. It had to push itself through being terrible for so long that it somehow miraculously came back around to being funny.

This game is hitting right in that unbearably awful referential but not self aware sweet spot.

Maybe I've grown up, but Deadpool as a character hasn't been anywhere near as good as he was in Cable & Deadpool. The art style for this game is completely wrong for me, I would have preferred a Borderlands like art style. Add to that the character model for Cable is taken from one of the worst comics I've read ( X-Sanction) that kind of destroyed my enjoyment for Cable.

Also I'm wondering if Deadpool works outside of Comics, the voice I imagined is always way better that what they use.

Oh well rant over.

Reminds of of the X-men Origins Wolverine game, which I thought was pretty awesome. So, I remain cautiously optimistic.

I didn't think this trailer was that bad. Quips taken out of context don't work when you string em together like this, but taken individually they sounded alright.

These negative hipster comments are annoying. The trailer was fine. Probably won't buy the game, but it seems interesting, nonetheless.

Came here to post this. Nolan North at his finest. I don't know how the game will end up, but I'll keep a look out for it. It seems interesting.

Looks like they gave too much candy to the 14-year-olds that made this trailer.

I hate to be the one that says piss off to all you nay sayers... But Deadpool is a complete psycho idiot. Thats kinda of his character. He has always been a complete nut job with the multiple voices in his head. I imagine the crude childish humor will turn off a lot of people...

Need I remind you it's comic book character turned video game! I for one think they nailed it. Buy it or don't...
