New X-Men Video Game Announced
Well, the new Activision and Marvel game is described like this: "The all-new original video game casts players as new mutant recruits in a rich, branching storyline that features a deep element of choice and gives players ultimate control of their destiny." New mutant recruits? Could they be at the Xavier Academy? Did G-Man sign a deal with Marvel and Activision behind our backs?
If you remember, Activision, Marvel, and X-Men have all teamed up before with the X-Men Legends series, which became the platform for Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Hopefully, we'll get a different game engine though, since the MUA and Legends engine has really run its course. Maybe more of a 3rd person view? Who knows? Or how about a side-scrolling beat-em-up? That would be super awesome.
The big deal with all of this is that New York Comic Con attendees will get a sneak peak at the game during the con. Now through October 10th, the Activision booth (#1833) will not only have sneak peeks of the game, but they'll also have info on the original storyline written by X-Men: Legacy scribe Mike Carey at the Marvel Games Panel, October 9th, at 10:45 AM in room 1A06. Could this game be a lot like the game G-man described recently? What do you want to see in this game?

Check out the trailer too! Thanks to Shadowdoggy for the trailer hook-up!
" That's weird. G-Man just did that "Comics to Video Games" feature on the X-Men the other day, and now here's a game that looks like it's going to have a similar idea. Does this mean G-Man is working for Activision? "I was about to post a Captain America video game idea this week as well, but SEGA beat me to it. Look for it coming soon.
Moon Knight coming soon??? But it would be interesting to see if there are splinter teams (Alpha Team, X-Force, etc.) in this game
" I love it! I want it! I need it! It is freaky that G-Man would write an article about an RPG X-Men game when it appears that there might be one! Hmmm... "
Also I wonder if there will be online co-op. People on here will form teams no doubt.
I would LOVE it if you could pick your X-team to join
that would be amazing!!!
and yes, I think there HAS to online or local (at least) co op
and then we'd get to team up or square off with our customized mutants!
or the X-Doggies, either way
So I was trying to make sure I watched this right, the first three are the create-a-characters, but then its Wolverine, Pyro, ( Storm or Jean? or even Emma cuz it looks like dimonds), Nightcrawler, Cyclops and Magneto. Do you think thats correct? If not whats your guess?
I hope they make a PC version for this one, I wonder if Marvel looks on the vine for opinions, cuz the part with G-man's RPG X-men game is coming to life, so to speak, next time G-man should want a Marvel vs DC crossover game, who knows, maybe in a few days we will have a trailer of it.:P
hmm. this idea could work. Im curious to see how they are going to present the story line in this game. Im thinking of possible story arcs n the x-men comics that could best fit the idea of creating ur own mutant into the plot. Or maybe they're just creating there own story..that would be fine too. And they should sooo do online game play, especially sense there will be peoples own creative idea's for mutants...lets just hope that there variety in modifications for character creation meets a decent criteria to where we wouldnt see the same idea floating around..:T
