God, Pacific Rim's advertising campaign has been awful. Only two trailers? Really?
ninjahulk - 5/18/2013, 9:34 AM
@levitikuz no you not the only who though that and i agree with you 10 time better then deadpool

Pacific rim "main trailer" is the awesomest of the bunch

An Arkham City movie needs to be made and look just like that trailer.

What the hell? Hate on the Deadpool game?

Guess you didn't play the fantastic Transformers games Levi. Those are like the Arkham games for Transformers (i.e. capture the spirit of the property perfectly). Same developer is making Deadpool.

WB Montreal has done 1 thing, PORT Arkham City to the Wii U. That's it. And that probably took minimal effort.

So lets see, excited for a game (Deadpool) made by fantastic developers of Transformers Cybertron
or....
excited for a game made by porters.

Anyone can make a good trailer. It's experience that counts.

"Forty full-time employees from Activision's High Moon Studios were laid off today after completing their work on Deadpool, an Activision spokesperson tells Joystiq."

As sad as it is that they were laid off, it seems like they were laid off AFTER completing their work on the game. This means their talent went into the game. Oh god don't tell me the game is actually $50, instead of 60? Flawless logic once again Levi. Using a price and team layoffs that occurred after the games production into affirming the game is bad.

You're comparing games that are in different stages in production. Like I said, these developers HAVE NEVER MADE A FULL GAME. It's not just help they need, they need the experience.

We shall see, I'm not saying Arkham Origins is going to be bad (unlike you saying without doubt Deadpool will be). I think it has a much greater chance of being bad. So how about you stop telling yourself lies, because no one knows for sure how good either will be.

I agree with thewonderer, deadpool will be awesome! And did LEVI really say that since the game is $50, it won't be as good? Oh jeez!

@Levi
I agree,the Deadpool game looks like a 2006 game with bad jokes and bad graphics.

@LEVITIKUZ

No I thought that aswell, they're both cinematics done to advertise the game. The Hugo Strange one was much better imo nothing beat Strange's narration, however we'll most likely get a longer Arkham Origins cinematic

I heard the deadpool game is solid fanfare and although may not do anything new...it does what it does well.
Facade - 5/18/2013, 12:28 PM
So looking forward to Monday's Arkham trailer!!!

@Levi
Some people like to play shit games .

Ah, all I hope is that Arkham Origins will live up to the greatness of the two previous entries. If that can be reached, I will be a happy gamer. The trailer looks promising, let's just hope the gameplay is just as awesome. Also, does anyone know how or why Agent Coulson is being brought back? Does the show take place before or after the events shown in The Avengers? I just hope it's handled in a genuine way, because I'm still really on the fence about that one. If not done in an appropriate manner, I feel it undermines one of the most brilliant and heartfelt moments of not only The Avengers, but also of the whole Marvel Phase One Universe.

@MementoMori

The Shield TV show takes place after The Avengers, Coulson is somehow revived from the dead.
thewonderer - 5/18/2013, 2:25 PM
What's up with the highlighted name insults? Like why highlight it? I can see it. You want to emphasize your name calling of me?

Anyway, I don't presume to state for sure any game will be good or bad and no one should because it's freaking common sense we don't know what'll happen.

Your logic makes no sense anyway.
