    I’m still concerned there has been little to no Gameplay news

    • Solomon_Kano

      Yea, it’s bothering me that we have yet to see a full gameplay trailer (there are bits of gameplay – UI interspersed in the existing two trailers). The only previews of the game were from last year, aside from a bit that Eurogamer wrote about the game’s humor back in January.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I maintain that Psylocke looks like Olivia Munn here lol.

    • Lol

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      She does :/

      • evilmajikman

        Could be worse. Could look like Psylocke from the movie that must not be named.

        • Testsubject909

          What movie? I have no idea what you’re talking about…

          I literally don’t. But then again I haven’t watched all the X-men movies.

          • Solomon_Kano

            X3. Of all the piss-poor adaptations of a character there have been, her treatment is in the top 5. The movie overall is laughable though. Not that I liked any of the X-Men movies til FC.

        • zaidandzhadow

          she looks ugly as hell

  • JustThisOne

    Psychic butterflies? Really? *looks it up*

    • Zhizn Snake

      I remember her having powers like that in the Capcom fighting games she’s been in, at least. Such a fun and awesome character to play as, with all her ninjitsu, ninpo clones, psychic butterflies…

      • Testsubject909

        I first saw her in an old X-men fighting game. And I’ve liked her ever since.

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I want to get this, but I think I’ll wait a little bit longer before I decide to purchase it. Hope a demo comes out before it releases

  • puchinri

    Sinister’s isn’t as bad (that hair though), but both designs come off feeling a bit bad. Psylocke has it way worse though. I just don’t understand why these two?

    Maybe I’m behind on the news (given I haven’t really kept up anyway), but did they announce Cable, Mary or any characters like that? (And if they threw in Psylocke to promote the new X-ladies titles, Storm would have been a better choice since they’ve actually better choice given past team history – albeit short – and her connections with the characters he’s had a longer run with.)

    • z_merquise

      So far, they revealed Domino, Death, Cable and now these two.

      I think Psylocke somewhat makes sense because she and Deadpool are teammates in Uncanny X-Force. I remember Deadpool and Mister Sinister fought once in ‘Cable and Deadpool’ series and that’s it.

      • Christopher Shafer

        Woverine’s pretty much been confirmed, and I think I saw Rogue in some concept art. The achievements mention Arclight and Vertigo (The female one from Marvel who dresses in green).

        • Solomon_Kano

          Rogue can also be seen on a poster in DP’s room in the game’s first trailer.

      • puchinri

        Ah, okay. Good that those three were announced before.

        And that makes sense. I feel like I remembered them on a team before, but not as fully as in some other stuff. And yeah, that was the only time I remembered those two fighting (but it was an alt. universe Sinister anyway, and that’s why I was iffy about this).

    • raymk

      Honestly psylocke fits the game much better than any of the other x-men. She has hand to hand combat and she has a sense of humor and being in a deadpool game makes to much sense. I don’t think this is to promote x-woman but have a mix of popular, interesting and relevant characters. The designs aren’t bad but the faces is what’s messed up.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Psylocke and DP were teammates in the much-loved Uncanny X-Force from Rick Remender, so that’s why she’s here. Only other announced characters thus far are Cable and Death.

      • Strain42

        While not confirmed, I think the odds of Hit Monkey appearing in this game are pretty good since apparently there was some joke about Hit Monkey maybe getting his own game that ended up being this one. Plus the game is written by Daniel Way IIRC who created Hit Monkey, so I could see him popping up. He’s mostly had Deadpool related stories.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yea, the game’s teaser site originally said it was for a Hit-Monkey game lol. Figures he’s likely to show up after that.

  • MasterScrub

    I’m going to be extremely shocked if this game winds up being good. Not seeing any gameplay this close to release is concerning.

    • there’s is gameplay, check youtube

  • DarthSithZero

    Is this coming to PC O.o? HELL YEAH I didnt notice that on the past trailers

    • Christopher Shafer

      Yep. It’s coming to PC.

  • Z

    Only support? I want to play with Psylocke :D

    • raymk

      Don’t worry she may be unlockable or a pre-order bonus.

  • raymk

    I like the deadpool summary of the characters lol. I knew he’d be only psylocke like that.

  • SpecDotSign

    Call Kotaku! Objectification of women! Her boobs are too big!

    • You’d be right if she was only around to be sexy and slutty. But as long as she has a real point in the story it’s okay. Big BREASTS aren’t a sin. It’s just all too often used selfishly by writers and artists.

      • Testsubject909

        Quick. Call Kotaku. Power Girl exists.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Twas sarcasm.

      • Zhizn Snake

        Well, in another case, the accusers (who were being serious) didn’t even wait to find out if a character with big breasts even had any story or character… >.> lol, just saying..

    • Isaac Newton

      I don’t call it Kotaku I always called it “The Website of Depression”….

  • Zhizn Snake

    More bouncy! :3

    But hey, look, a sexy female character in a video game… *expects a gaming blog to use this as another opportunity to sensationalize*

    It’d be awesome for me if Mr. Sinister sounds the way he did in the X-Men 90s cartoon.

  • Deadpool’s funny, and I usually hate breaking the 4th wall, but I might play this. I’d say there’s a 70% chance I’ll get it.

    • raymk

      Thanks, that was pretty funny. I think I’m getting the game now as I first didn’t have any interest.

      • no prob, used to hate Deadpool, but now I see him as Joker if he sometimes did good.

  • evilmajikman

    It’d be cool if Psylocke is playable in challenge maps.

  • Göran Isacson

    I see Deadpool left out the part where she was British once upon a time but then she apparently took over the body of some Japanese woman and now she’s just chilling in there? Idk, like Deadpool says her backstory is very confusing. Still, neat idea for promotional artwork!

    • Solomon_Kano

      Short version: she got into it with a psychic ninja named Kwannon, they switched bodies, ninja died in her body so now she’s Asian forever. :O

  • Hiya_tiger

    I hope I can dress Psylocke in Opena’s Uncanny X-force costume for her. shit is OD.

  • Testsubject909

    Psylocke? Now my interest is heightened…

    Think Squirrel Girl will have a game one day? I know you’d basically be playing God Mode but still.

    • HilariousNPC

      Not gonna lie. That 3D model of Psylocke looks horrible. I’m all for Psylocke being in stuff, but, meh…

  • Namuro

    I don’t know all the American comic heroes and villains that well (only super popular ones like Superman, Wolverine, Spiderman, Hulk, etc. Even then I still don’t know all the deeper details). But Deadpool sure can sum up all the interesting facts about a character. All the characters’ bio should totally be written by this guy LOL.
