This Latest Deadpool Trailer Is Just Exhausting

There's breaking the fourth wall, and then there's giddily motorboating it to death while screaming "BOO-YAH!"

Looks and sounds like Deadpool. So they nailed it. I'm just hoping the gameplay itself is up to par.

High Moon studios doesn't make bad games. But this game will flop. I never heard of Deathpool so that means 99% other people also... Might be good but doesn't appeal to me at all.

I'm always down for a good superhero game. I sure hope this is one of those!

@curtman2k7: I would give my left nut for X-Men Legends 3.

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.

To be fair, so do most of the comics.

Bingo. Deadpool's solo series' are just as crazy and retarded and not-that-funny as this game will be. Now Uncanny X-Force Deadpool, that's a motherfucking Deadpool!

DEADpool is a pretty famous character. Not Batman, Iron Man, Spider-Man famous but I'd say on the level of Green Lantern before the movie. And that's to the general public, not comic book fans. And speaking of Green Lantern, Deadpool was played by Ryan Reynolds in X-Men Origin - Wolverine. So he has been in a big budget movie(using the term lightly)

I like Deadpool, but that writing is kinda stupid. I'm no expert on the character, but this seems like too childish a representation of him. But hey, maybe the game is good despite that. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

Well, I've heard of Deadpool before. A mate of mine is really into the comics. But that trailer was my first exposure to the character...and now I fucking hate him.

It's funny: if Nolan North actually sounded more like he normally does, the voice would be perfect.

@sweep: almost any adaptation misses the point. It's always a one-dimensional caricature that does nothing but break the forth wall.

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I thought it was kind of funny.

The thing that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside about all the people bitching about how this trailer is obnoxious, trying too hard, and running the 'fourth wall' bit right into the ground...

...Is that that is a perfect summary of Deadpool himself. This game is going to be awesome. :)

Highmoon did right by the non Bay style Transformers, so I'll give them the benefit of doubt.

The trailer should just have the last three seconds of this on a loop though. That would've been perfect.

I think I am in the minority here but I kinda liked the trailer and I actually thought the humor was pretty good.

After watching that trailer I'm not sure if I ever liked Deadpool, in fact, I'm now convinced I never have.

So Deadpool is basically a mix of Duke Nukem, Postal 2 and the textures from superman 64?
