X-men origins Wolverine was such a great game. Hopefully they don't go too serious (Logan) or too kiddie friendly and keep Wolverines ferocity intact. Doubt we will get the over the top gore and combat present in Origins from Insomniac/Sony though unfortunately.

Sorry, but why do you doubt it's gonna be gory?

robtion741d ago

It's a big budget AAA game. Just seems like they tend to play things safe when there are those kind of development costs involved. I would be very happy to be proven wrong. I'm a big fan of Wolverine/X-men in general and Insomniac (I have played every Ratchet and clank game sine the original, loved all the Resistance games, and even bought an xbox 1 primarily to play Sunset Overdrive).

SDuck741d ago

It's a AAA Marvel game. Wolverine is now a Disney property. Insomniac has a track record of making family friendly games and this will probably be connected to Spiderman's universe so it will most likely be on the same vein

It's the closest we will get to getting an X-men game. I'll take it!

robtion741d ago

I used to play the X-men mutant academy games back on the original Playstation. Would love a reboot of that series it was really fun.

Please let there be a Gambit cameo. Please let there be a Gambit cameo.


Marvel's Wolverine Should Treat Deadpool Like One Classic Yakuza Character

Deadpool could play a vital role in the upcoming Marvel's Wolverine title by taking up the legacy of an entertaining Yakuza character.

I hope not. Keep it dark and grim. Just seeing Deadpool in that thumbnail makes it look like Fortnite.

Christopher76d ago

I think we can live without Deadpool. If he shows up he either steals the show or isn't present enough. He's too popular for being a main character now that he doesn't work as well as a side character in a heavily story driven game like Insomniac Marvel games. I also don't think any of us want to deal with the onslaught of "Why Insomniac MUST make a Deadpool game next" articles.

jznrpg76d ago (Edited 76d ago )

I am guessing he isn’t in the game.

They are going for a more mature darker tone from the trailer shown.

Deadpool doesn’t fit that at all.

I think I saw the first movie once but I’d rather they keep Deadpool in his own games

SimpleSlave76d ago (Edited 76d ago )

Absolutely. This is not about maturity but about writing and presentation. Yakuza is quite literally a story about the Japanese Mafia and it takes itself EXTREMELY seriously in that aspect. Then it flips it around and goes all silly goose on us. You know actual real life is.

The whole "tHiS iS mAtUrE" argument shows how plenty of people here have a lot of growing up to do. Too much Edge Lording and not enough Perspective, Nuance and Reality.

But then again, this will be a game about a guy that has healing factor, is like 200 years old, has indestructible metal over his bones and grows claws our of his hands. And he also hangs out with actual demi-gods and literal gods that are able to alter reality itself. So I guess I stand corrected. Deadpool might actually not work at all.

Oh, well. Maybe next time.

Looking forward to it. Just ordered X-men Origins Wolverine to scratch some of that itch in the meantime.

Underrated gem that game is

Insomniac's Spider-Man And Wolverine Should Start Gaming's Own MCU

Starting gaming's Own MCU with Marvel's Spider-Man and Wolverine is a logical move Sony should make to boost sales amidst high competition.

Vengeance1138113d ago

God NO! The MCU is beyond awful now, or as it is now the "M-SHE-U", not everything needs to be part of some interconnected universe. Also this would greatly hinder creative freedom as making huge narrative changes would need to make sense for other games that are connected.

Terry_B113d ago

The MCU's big problem is..that more or less all Marvel movies and series are a part of it. Which makes something like a bloody Blade movie or a truly mature Punisher movie or series impossible.

Vengeance1138113d ago

Any Punisher movie is actually impossible now since his iconic logo was used by terrorists, now he's a ninja with swords with a completely different logo.

SinisterMister112d ago

Well, the same MCU that you bash now with no regret gave us the likes of the Avengers movies, and damn, wasn't that something of a series. The recent Guardians of the Galaxy 3 was amazing top-to-bottom as well. Sure, and I agree with you on that part, that Marvel hasn't been at its level best lately, but a cross-over like this in gaming isn't such a bad idea.

Noskypeno112d ago

It was great for a few years, but I shouldn't have to watch a 12 part tv series to understand a new character that appears in a new movie.

MCU died with Endgame. There were some flutters of life with No Way Home and Guardians of the Galaxy 3 but they weren't enough to make up for the entire MCU. At best we get some good Spiderman movies in the future but the MCU is dead.
