Looking forward to games, for me, is a rare thing. I usually am too busy enjoying the games of the past two to three years to be too concerned with various up and coming games. But it is nice to see a game come along and surprise you into being excited about it.
I have been a fan of the Deadpool comic book series for a few years now, and have amassed a stockpile of his comic books to pour over when the internet goes ca-put due to a large storm passing over. Seeing the new Deadpool game planned for release next year really got the
neckbeard nerd inside of me all riled up.
Despite it only being released on console, I still maintain some hope that it will emulate the over the top violence, swearing and boobs that the comic book so graciously conveys. With Nolan North as the main voice actor for Deadpool (excluding his other two head mates), it helps suit the character well. Hopefully the dialogue in the game will not be too deliberately rude, with instead a more subtle under tone of complete insanity.
While I’m not sure how his regenerative abilities will fit into the game, it is clear that you will never die. In the comic books, Deadpool has been literally turned into ash and bone and still come back from the dead. Hopefully they don’t make it too easy to regenerate from bullet wounds and the like. Also, I am not entirely sure what plot line it will hold. There are many ways to go about the story line, but I hope there are assassination side missions, a large world set up and the ability do just go out and cause some serious carnage.
Anyway, while I waste my time away playing the games I bought through the Steam Winter sale (Mirrors Edge, yeah!), I shall remain steadfast in my anticipation for Deadpool next year. While things like Bioshock Infinite will be coming out, I doubt that it will satisfy my fangirl urge for comic book justice.
