The Marvel’s Avengers game has been delayed in order to allow more time to polish the game.
Lool funny enough i was saying this to a couple a friends a few days ago that this game gonna get delayed cause theres been no follow up gameplay other than the tutorial part. They still haven't shown what this multiplayer loot driven gameplay is supposed to look like.
SquareEnix is on the roll today. first FF VII Remake and now Avengers :)
Let them delay both, if that's what it takes to iron out issues and deliver a better product.
Told You Guys
They should change the main hero. Once they showed that and her powers, I was like ; nope, thank you.
you would think, it's an Avengers Game....Let us play as an actual Avenger not some 3rd rate SJW character no one knows about.
My point exactly and her powers are repulsive to me and not cool at all.
Since when was there a main hero?
Kamala Khan is the main protagonist of this game. It has been announced last year and she was shown with her ability to stretch and bloat her bodyparts. Rather disgusting "powers."
I know what her abilities are, she's the same character from the comics. But where was it said there is a "main" hero of the game?
When they revealed her in one of the trailers or an interview. I don't remember where exactly but I'm sure a quick google search will show you.
She isn't the main hero. They just decided to make her a marketing point soon after showing off the game, after no one seemed to care about the rest of the heroes because of their outfits.
First final fantasy and now this
SquareEnix is on roll today.....
This game hasn't looked good anytime it has been shown so this doesn't surprise me one bit. I always thought the initial date given was absurd considering how early the game looked.
Do you have us confused with that other site here or something?
I prefer this than Anthem
Nope nope nope to both both both.
well, that was... expected i guess...
2020, the year of delays.
BREAKING NEWS: Square Enix Delay Announcement Delayed “When we set out to inform you of all our delays, we committed to delivering an original 200-character apology, shiny new font type, and double spaced line breaks” reads the announcement. “To that end, we will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing our announcement to the high standards our fans expect and deserve. Please pre-order our games though." “We apologize for the delay on the delay. We’re confident it will be worth the wait,” reads the end of the announcement. Square Enix has refused to provide further comment. Stating that they are hard at work picking an intern to write up a new delayed announcement template for when Final Fantasy VII Remake gets pushed beyond April 10th, 2020.
Delays happen every year. Why do we act like it doesn't?
more than usual. and the year just started.
Most game delays this year were from last year. We've got two SE games which are usually delayed.
As it is tradition.
No one wants to play the game after the main character was announced being someone no one cares about.
Not being aggressive or anything but that's just not true. The story is told from her perspective, but you play as all of the Avengers. Did you not watch the extended gameplay demonstration where they showed how gear and loot works? Besides whats wrong with playing an Avengers game from a new/different perspective anyway?
Because this character is trash and has no fan base beside maybe a few thousand which is less than Captain Marvel. There are plenty of other Marvel characters that could have been use that have much better back story and are more well liked. Yes you can play as the other Avengers but they have explained how often that is what is the time spent playing at Ms. Marvel compared to the other avengers? This character was picked because they want to push her since they have a movie being made and they want to increase her name in the MCU. If she was so well received she would have been center focus of the release trailer and not the Core Avengers.
i care. see you're wrong. oh wait!? is it that it's a she or a person of colour? or both? please tell me racist basement dweller.
wittle white knight here to save the day? so cute No it's because shes a character no serious fan or even MCU fan cares about. It's like playing Mario Bro game but you have to play as toad's step cousin Fungus. Fans want actual established characters or just let us create our own super hero to fight alongside the avengers with. Ms. Marvel is a poor character that has barely any fan base and her abilities are trash. (Sorry was that to much for your wittle brain or should I just make racist remarks since that's the only thing you can seem to comprehend?)
@SeanScythe: sorry if i offended you. there are so many racist in these comment sections that i had a quick trigger.
You know that name calling of racist holds no water anymore? People like you have used it so much on anything that offends you. You're offended by someone else opinion because you have no rational argument to defend your position. It's well known the first one to scream racist is the first to lose and argument.
@SeanScythe: go try to fool someone that doesn't know any better. as much as racists try to hide their racism they always have certain words that give it away. some don't even realize they're using them. anytime some role is cast with someone other than a white male the racism is in plain sight. "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" because the lead is not a white man. so every time 1 of 10 roles are none white men it has to be political. lol none racist people don't think that way. fact
Control, The Walking Dead, The Last of Us 2, Event Horizion, Uncharted: The lost Legacy, Mirrors edge, Bayonetta, Hellblade, Metroid, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, Alien Isolation, Mass Effect, and Many many more. Please tell me again.... You are the one looking at race and sex not me. I judge by character you only see the outside and not what is the true character and if they have good traits or abilities or personality. If the game wanted to let you play as Black Panther as the main character I would welcome that. It would be interesting to explore that character and his background same with Black Widow. I'm hoping we get a Spiderman game with Miles or Gwen as the main characters. So please go on and tell me how I'm a racist when you know nothing about me aside that I like games and comics but not Ms. Marvel.
How much of a fanbase did Antman or the Guardians of the galaxy have before they took center stage? Antman gets big and small,its not like his powers are great either. Yet the same people who complain about Ms Marvel apparently have no problem supporting those characters.Or maybe its because those characters were given a starring role? A characters fanbase grows because of increased exposure. I'm not saying the game will be good, but I guarantee you it wont be bad or do poorly because of the main character Crystal Dynamics has chosen.
Really? Their fan base and history is much richer and larger, Ms. Marvel has been around and her comics don't sell. Shes being shoved into movies and now the games to check some diversity box that marvel is wanting checked. Just because you have some raging boner for her doesn't make her a good character, make her an option to be used but don't make her the center of the game. No one plays a Zelda game to play as one of the random villagers in Hyrule.
@SeanScythe: ok after reading your reply to isa_scout i take back my take back. you're a racist. own it, love it. you don't need to hide it. Jesus! lol almost all games and movies are white males. stop F ing crying you entitled ass.
You know, most of the time someone,such as yourself, resorts to name calling or using low brow comments(Raging boner? Seriously? I've never read a Ms Marvel comic book in my life)during a discussion its because their opinion holds no water. You're talking about comic book sales like that ties to game quality or if people will buy it/want it. I'll wait while you see how poorly almost ALL comic book video game adaptions do as it pertains to quality.There are TWO main outliers, Spiderman and the Arkham series. How did Superman64 do even though Supes has a rabid fanbase? Or Batman Begins(the video game tie-in)? If this game fails or succeeds it will have to do with the quality of the game or lack thereof not the hero you play as. If this game comes out to critical acclaim I 100% guarantee you no one will care that its Ms Marvel and it'll do huge numbers.Not because it checks a diversity box, but because its a good game. It could suck, I don't know I still need to see more..However, I was discussing this topic decently and respectfully so why cant you?
We'll agree to disagree, the reason it will make sales is because it has the title AVENGERS, but lets see how the reviews go from gamers not sites paid to review it. Also you list is lacking, Batman, Spiderman, Deadpool, wolverine, injustice, lego, marvel ultimate alliance, incredible hulk, wolk among us, telltale's walking dead. just to name a few. Walking dead was amazing and it's a little girl as the main character in the second season.
You're right, I should have been more specific I was talking about super hero comics not games/comics like Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us. You list games like Deadpool and Wolverine but critically and commercially they were flops or sold poorly. I'm saying on a grand scale there have been hundreds or even thousands of super hero games that stink, and NONE of them were bad because of the choice of the main character. Like I said, if this game comes out and bombs it wont be because of Ms Marvel, it'll be because the quality doesn't live up to the Marvel standard. But we can just agree to disagree. We both have different opinions, nothing wrong with that.
So the main character of a game doesn't have anything to do with a games rating? Since when? What if you play as her character 80% of the main game and you don't like her combat or the characters personality is anoying? Remember MGS2 where you start playing as Snake then get thrown into Raiden? Yeah no one was happy with that and dealing with his love life and his personalty was cringe. The game was fun and well made but the main character was bad and it caused it to get lower scores.
Well, I guess I'd bring up Spiderman PS4, Spiderman has a pretty stale moveset, it hasn't really changed for 20 years. So, why did Spiderman PS4 do so well despite his overly familiar moveset and powers? Because Insomniac brought Spiderman to life in a new fresh way. Crystal Dynamics is a talented dev as well, I'm sure they could do the same with Ms Marvel.The thing is we just don't know yet. So I choose to give them the benefit of the doubt. I'm pretty sure we're probably not going to see eye to eye on this subject though.
It's spiderman the MOST popular Marvel character. In a game developed by a great team. Just like Dragonball games, the new Kakarot game is coming out with the same characters and story in a new setting. But if they said you had to play as Arale as the main character and you get to play as the main cast in certain parts it wouldn't be that fun. I want to play as the main team not a side character that no one cares about. If you don't know who Arale is here is a link and you'll see how a pointless character can make something less fun. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
How was The Amazing Spiderman 1 and 2 or really any of the Beenox developed Spiderman games? Pretty bad if my memory is correct and they didn't sell very good compared to Spiderman PS4. So a popular hero doesn't automatically equate to game sales.And Crystal Dynamics is a talented and successful studio as well. Also, earlier you brought up that Guardians of the galaxy had a larger fanbase and richer history. Ms Marvel was released 7 years ago while Guardians of the galaxy released in 1969 and even with that large fanbase and a movie under its belt the Guardians of the galaxy comic was cancelled and relaunched in 2017 due to poor sales. Again, it comes down to the QUALITY of the game not the hero. 99% of people had no idea who Groot was until a great movie came out, now everyone knows the Guardians of the galaxy, why cant Crystal dynamics have a chance with Ms Marvel?
Least they aren't crunching the devs (I think?) But it's looking sloppy for them especially after the 6 month XV delay.
Square Enix "Delay everything."
Wait...ur not iron man??? No way...
Honestly I'm not surprised, we have not heard much about this game and we don't know much of how it will operate with other players as well as how they will handle the live service aspect of it. It's strange but I just don't feel any excitement for it for some reason and I'm not sure why.
Glad it's delayed. More time for polish and improvements.
Sadly for them, it's impossible to polish a turd.
