Wow, that looks awful
JoeMomma29 - 9/5/2013, 8:41 AM
Dang at least DC has bragging rights on video games.
McNyagano - 9/5/2013, 8:42 AM
People are complaining about the graphics of a mobile video game lol xD
JDUKE25 - 9/5/2013, 8:44 AM
No game on major consoles? I wonder why. lol
SoundWave - 9/5/2013, 8:45 AM
Nice!
Hope this one-eyed snake monster from 0:15-0:16 will be in the movie!
SpecialKail - 9/5/2013, 8:48 AM
they need to stop doing movie tie-in games and just making a game that capitalizes on the character being in a movie for publicity. like the arkham games. arkham asylum wasnt the dark knight game, but it came out close enough that it capitalized on the furor over the film. movie tie in games usually blow.

that said, captain america the winter soldier was a good bit of fun, for a game i was able to get all the achievements on in 24hrs (thanks redbox!).
SpecialKail - 9/5/2013, 8:48 AM
like, it was retarded they didnt release a video game around the time as avengers, such as ultimate alliance 3.
riseofloganX36 - 9/5/2013, 8:53 AM
Yeah what the hell no consal games?!?!? And it looks like the x-men legends games I like those type of games.

And mebey they stop with movie games cause you people bitch all the time.

Nuff said bub!
JoeMomma29 - 9/5/2013, 8:53 AM
This is the game of the year!

JoeMomma29 - 9/5/2013, 8:55 AM
Even the portable game will rock this year as well.



By the way pretty good graphics for a mobile game.
ComicFan1134 - 9/5/2013, 8:57 AM
Wow, Marvel, Get Off Your Ass, DC Is Stomping You On VGs
Dev7 - 9/5/2013, 9:00 AM
Yea DC is stomping Marvel on 1 video game based on 1 character. LOL Some bragging rights. Don't forget Marvel Vs Capcom.
Humperdink - 9/5/2013, 9:00 AM
Don't even need to press play on the video.

Already know it's going to be garbage.

bazinga85 - 9/5/2013, 9:02 AM
@Dev7
Injustice>Marvel vs Capcom
SpectacularJoShFest - 9/5/2013, 9:13 AM
Nobody saying anything about Thor wearing the helmet in the trailer?
Okay then...Thor is wearing the helmet in the trailer.
SpectacularJoShFest - 9/5/2013, 9:16 AM
Videogame of the year?

The Last of Us.
JoeMomma29 - 9/5/2013, 9:16 AM
Gusto loves his video games.

JoeMomma29 - 9/5/2013, 9:17 AM
Oh yeah, I cannot forget my buddy Batz as well.

sinsear912 - 9/5/2013, 9:36 AM
other than arkham series and injustice how does dc have marvel beat in the video game department??
bazinga85 - 9/5/2013, 9:41 AM
@sinsear
What does marvel have that's even close to the Arkham games? Ultimate Alliance is good, Spider-Man 2 is good, and the Marvel vs Capcom games are alright, but none of those come close to the Arkham games. Plus DC also has DCUO which is a good MMO.
JoeMomma29 - 9/5/2013, 9:46 AM
@ sinsear912

Ummm just those games you listed have Marvel beat. Sorry but DC rules in comics, animation, video games, and live action t.v.. Now the live action t.v. could change with Agents of Shield, but DC is one step a head by pushing forward with a Flash series.

The only weak spot of DC, and I will admit it is the biggest is the live action movie. Marvel owns that and they will continue to own that for a long time.
TheFirstAvenger97 - 9/5/2013, 9:58 AM
It's a game for your phone... What did you guys expect?
Giznad - 9/5/2013, 10:03 AM
this looks really cool for a mobile game. Is this Marvel vs. DC again? Jeevus. Marvel just has so many characters it seems tough to put all of their focus into just one game. X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I think, was the best Marvel title in years besides Marvel Vs. Capcom 2. That's about it. But Arkham City will always be champ. By a landslide. You've just gotta realize Marvel has so many characters, it might be tough to focus on just one like DC does with Batman.

I know someone said this already, but IDC, game of the year:
Bark4Soul - 9/5/2013, 11:06 AM
Marvel could put out a decent Marvel game if they stopped making rush jobs for movies. THis looks like a Diablo style Thor game which is easy to do, so to [frick] that up somehow is beyond me.
SpecialKail - 9/5/2013, 11:14 AM
Im not trying to serve up marvel/dc flame war. I just want marvel to start making games at all again.

although we did forget about deadpool which was really good and alot of fun. but no arkham

id be happy w another ultimate alliance game.

and yeah injustice beats the dogshit out of marvel vs. capcom.

they just need to put out arkham style games that coincide, but are in no way related to, the release of the solo films. then, put out ultimate alliance games when avengers movies come out.

duh.
SpecialKail - 9/5/2013, 11:16 AM
they also need to get someone good making spidey games again. those edge of time and shattered dimensions games were [frick]ing dogshit compared to web of shadows. pissed me right off.
SpecialKail - 9/5/2013, 11:37 AM
i know what im writing my 500$ editorial about.
knocturnalzen10 - 9/5/2013, 11:41 AM
THIS MOVIE WON'T DO WELL IT'S GARBAGE
Ineedrevelation - 9/5/2013, 11:52 AM
Okay... I thought we were past the video game movie tie-ins?

Can we please be done!?!

This is garbage.

Every future tie-in will be garbage.

[frick]ING STOP IT!!!!
SpecialKail - 9/5/2013, 12:09 PM
knoc it off turnalzen. quit trolling.

and i agree about tie in games but its pretty much expected to make a tiein mobile game for every [frick]ing movie anymore even noncbms.

WhiteBolt - 9/5/2013, 12:32 PM
At least, it looks and plays better than the MOS tie-in game.

And did someone say that DC has Marvel beat in comics? Ha! Is that why Marvel sells more than DC? In games, all DC has are the Arkham games. Take that away and DC doesn't have crap in the gaming department. Marvel has made good to great games with X-Men, Spider-Man, and with Ultimate Alliance. Heck, Deadpool was a good enough game. All DC has is Batman.
SpecialKail - 9/5/2013, 12:41 PM
and injustice both current games
unknownfacts - 9/5/2013, 1:35 PM
Making a good game is easier said then done.It take a good script,controls that are easy to understand,and worth a replay ever now and then.Plus it helps to have good villains which in most comic book characters cases are hard to come by.
Lhornbk - 9/5/2013, 3:37 PM
Hopefully, they get the bugs fixed before actually putting the game out, unlike Iron Man 3 which was filled with bugs at first. I have the Iron Man 3 game from the same company on my Nook tablet. It was a good game, and I think the graphics are outstanding (maybe not as good as a console, but pretty amazing for a free game.) It has easy to use gyro controls and shooting controls (just touch or swipe), although I wish they had made it where you could control up & down movement as well as left/right movement.

But, at least with the original version (I just installed an upgraded version), it didn't take too long to get through the storyline, and then you're just doing the same thing over & over. And while it is free, if you want to upgrade your armor and build new, better armors (most of the armors from the movie seem to be available), you either have to play for literally months to build up credits within the game, or you can buy credits. I ultimately did, figuring it was about the same as buying a game. And the bad thing is that the new upgrade did not work at first and actually kept the game from opening, at least on my tablet. They are telling me I will have to uninstall and reinstall, which will make me lose all my armors, credits, how far I've advanced, etc. Supposedly they can restore that, but right now we're still working all that out (before I just flat-out demand a refund of the money I spent for stuff I no longer have access to.)

So, while the Thor game may be good, I would advise waiting awhile before installing it, so you're not one of the guinea pigs for all the bugs, unless they do better with this one.

Is it possible that "The Valkyries" and "Brunnhilde" are in fact in Thor:TDW?
Blastaar - 9/5/2013, 4:31 PM
Tyr is supposed to be in Thor:TDW, I wonder when Balder, Karnilla, The Enchantress and Skurge will show up. Balder HAS to be in Thor 3 as well as Hela.
