I don’t know how I feel about that gameplay reveal today. I generally don’t like random deal card games. It’s firaxis though and I have to give them the benefit of the doubt. I’ll buy it for sure but that reveal was underwhelming. I don’t see why they waited to show that.

Yeah that gameplay left a lot to be desired. Enough to give me pause.

I'd like to see them show some verticality. Iron Man and Captain Marvel can fly. How does that factor into the gameplay? Also, is there a cover system? Do different types of terrain offer certain advantages in combat?

So many questions that need to be answered, but I like how the camera gets up close to your character when they do a super move. I'm still looking forward to buying it, but I need to see how "in-depth" of an RPG this really is.

Yeah I think you nailed my confusion lol. It left more questions than answers for sure. It was heavily edited and only showed a few seconds at a time. It looked good sometimes though.

I get that it’s just a summary but I would much rather a dev showing off a working build than some screen actors guild narrative with IGN breaks. Marketing gonna market I guess.

Edit: from what I understood your moves will be randomly dealt to you based on the deck you have built? Am I getting that wrong? If so that sucks lol. I like building with purpose. In firaxis games you have to.

@sourOG If the moves are randomized, I'll be really concerned. I doubt this is the case though. I want to see how an entire battle unfolds from beginning to end.

I could see flying being used as a way to travel across more blocks on the map/grid. And maybe something like allowing the character to hover in the air for a turn which makes them only able to take damage from ranged attacks. Something like that maybe?

So why do you even need MT at all in a premium $60 game?

PhillyDillyDee91d ago

Because some money isnt all the money. Its capitalism 101.

Devs can keep their game and cosmetics and shove it where it belongs.

lellkay92d ago

Are we still using the "Cosmetic Only" excuse.

No buy.

SenorFartCushion92d ago

I’ll not be buying it with you ✊

Why? Isn't this a single-player game? Haven't seen anything regarding PVP or coop yet. And i can't find any information on their official website (which is bare-bones, by the way, but they already offer you a skin for signing up to a 2k promo newsletter).
Also, it's still in development and will be release in next 6 months, yet they already implemented microtransactions, this clearly shows you their priority.
From the gameplay reveal, it looks like they'll probably sell you card packs later or something. Not to mention, it looks like toned down XCOM (which already wasn't that hardcode in the first place).

Personally, i was hoping they do something similar to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. But i guess another tactical card game was a more profitable choice for them.
