Surprised it hasn't been brought up before, but I figured we should have a thread to discuss the Deadpool Video game. We really don't have a lot of detail yet, so I guess for now it is just hopes and speculation for what the game will be.

I know it's still early.. but i would like them to release something new. There was way too much hype surrounding those screen shots considering 4 of them were from the only trailer we've seen. Also, hopefully they cool it with the "Deadpool's running High Noon," it's a little irritating.

I actually enjoy the marketing behind this game. The whole Deadpool owns Marvel studios is a great way to market the game and works for the character. It seems like the creators are having fun marketing the film, and I firmly believe that if the creators are having fun selling it, then we'll have fun playing it.

I'm excited for the game, whether it has the voices and is written by Daniel way or not. It's not often your favorite comic book character gets a video game and the Transformers War for Cybertron games are great fun, so if it's anything like those game it'll be great.

I kept hearing about released footage at Gamescom but I cant find any copies around the net. apparently as Deadpool takes damage he can lose body parts and opt to either pick them up and reattach them or wait to grow new limbs/parts as well as plenty of non stop banter, star trek and star wars references etc

And this just made me go from an 8 to 10 on the excited-o-meter.

if its true, which i cant seem to confirm yet, i would imagine it would have its pros and cons, like reattached limbs are slightly weaker for X amount of time where as waiting for new limbs limits your offensive ability. but thats just me, i have no way of proving it

I rounded up a ton of sites that were at Gamescom and posted about the Deadpool preview:

From the article:
The game looks like a lot of fun but ultimately the writing will have to be pitch-perfect (emphasis mine)to make Deadpool a success. If it strays too frequently, becoming more crass than clever, it could easily fall into the trap of becoming the kind of game it’s attempting to parody.


Daniel Way writing pitch-perfect while dialing back the crass? I'd like to see that happen.

Sweeeeeet! Thank you Boss! Well maybe the game-play is bad ass enough to compensate for Way's writing. Most games aren't about depth and great writing anyways so this might just work.

Too bad that Tieri wasn't assigned with the task. The Deadpool/Thunderbolt thing kind of proves that Marvel appreciates what Way is
doing with Deadpool up to a point. He draws a certain crowd with his Deadpool I guess.
Comedy too can sometimes discern what is right. I shall not please, but I shall say what is true.
