5 for the massive amounts of self aggrandizement all around.

I am so fucking sick of Deadpool
I remember when Deadpool was just Spiderman who killed people. Those were the days.

Oh wow, I knew that the internet's obsession with 'meta' and juvenile crassness for it's own sake was overhyping this game, but Jesus this humor is awful beyond what I'd imagined. And is the only thing distinguishing this from any other bargain box non-licensed game.
"You know why I like the internet? It's just like me."
"Overflowing with perversion and stupidity?"
Okay, I admit that's a good line. But calling it out doesn't make it stop existing, or being a problem.
Deadpool works better in print. I haven't read his comics in a while, so I'm not as sick of him as some are, but he did have an interesting purpose in being nuts: His biggest superpower was being the only character who realized there was something wrong with the universe (like reality being a comic book). He could spout lines like Star Trek's "Q" and get away with it, but I think the editors mistook people liking that to mean that readers just wanted more crazy 4th-wall-breaking jokes.
Were I in charge, I'd actually think a story dealing with his actual insanity and it becoming at least partly debilitating would be an interesting take.
But nah, we're in for pies to the face and kicks to the crotch, pretty much.
Yeah, I'm not criticizing Deadpool or even meta or juvenile humor itself. But when you do a pie to the face, and then mention how cliche and unoriginal a pie to the face is, you haven't made it not cliche and unoriginal.
It's several steps below 'what's the deal with airline food' in creativity. It's not even a drawing of a dick on a school desk, because that at least mines humor from contrast. This is a drawing of a dick in a book labelled 'Big Book of Dicks'.
We are expecting crude and meta references from Deadpool, so you can't just make a crude or meta reference and think that works as a joke. There has to be something additional to it, or it's just fill-in-the-blanks laziness.
SPK- have you read Deadpool Max? It's David Lapham (eeh) with art by Kyle Baker (yay!), and while I haven't had the chance to finish it, it starts getting into some of those ideas.
"Yeah, I'm not criticizing Deadpool or even meta or juvenile humor itself. But when you do a pie to the face, and then mention how cliche and unoriginal a pie to the face is, you haven't made it not cliche and unoriginal."
After hearing so much hype and good word of mouth for Cabin in the Woods, this was exactly my opinion once I saw it.
Seriously, though, what IS the deal with that airline food, anyway?

Well, at least this guy seems to like it.
|Caminante Nocturno - 2013-06-30 |
This guy sounds so white.
|Sanest Man Alive - 2013-06-30 |
Five minutes in and the guy is still pissing aimlessly around the apartment and not shooting things. If this is an action game it's a failure.
I'm even giving the chucklefuck on the mic the benefit of the doubt here because I'm betting he had no trouble whatsoever getting to the killy parts of God of War, or at least to the fucking tutorial, in that time.

It was a bad week for games last week.
Does DLC count? The newest BL2 DLC is a lot of fun.
It is? Does it let you play something other than a Borderlands game?
borderlands 2 wasnt interesting enough for me to play the DLC that I bought after my char "leveled up" to the max.
and by "level up" i mean "exploit bullshit about the game so you end up with the best weapons, which even then make you barely able to compete in PvP or against any major boss"
seriously, fuck borderlands 2. wasted potential.

Wasn't this the character that made Liefeld famous?
The guy playing the game would have been a better voice actor.
preload would support your hypothesis;
- all spandex
- no feet
- leg pouches
- guns and swords
and I think those are fingerless gloves being worn over his spandex gloves..

Gameplay wise, it doesn't seem outright terrible. It's the same hack, slash, and power up mechanic that made God of War famous, with just as exciting combos.
Hell, everything else about it seems just as tolerable as God of War as well.
Are you fucking serious? The cynical ass that goes around 1 starring shit everywhere actually likes God of War?
I was attacking you for your lack of shame, not defending God of War.
There isn't enough cynicism on POE.

How helpful of him to provide a laugh track for the game.

The Gambit Clones joke is kind of great, at least. Just a million clones of Gambit that mindlessly run towards you screaming "MON CHERI!" over and over.
One reason I couldn't get into X-men comics, every book I tried had that damn Cajun in it GAMBEET SAY LET THE GOOD TIMES ROULEZ MON CHERI, and he's just a terrible character. If Deadpool is or was originally a typical product of Liefield's worst tendencies, then Gambit is the worst artistic tendencies of Jim Lee put together with some of the worst tendencies of Chris Claremont.
