Not that I liked the game but my point is

YAY digital. Another example why all digital is a bad idea.

Oh no no...Digital is the future remember

Digital copies are still playable after the end of the month.

What about after it's delisted. From the sounds of it, if it's not on your console it's gone.

NotoriousWhiz21h ago

Unclear if you'll be able to re-download it. For most de-listed games, you can still re-download them even after they are removed from purchase. There are some rare exceptions though. Generally, you can assume that it can be re-downloaded unless they explicitly state that you cannot.

You’ll have a good time with this game for $4. Ms Marvel’s abilities alone are worth the price of admission. All the cosmetic micro-transactions are also free so have fun kitting out the most ridiculous Avengers team.


Is The Games As A Service Spell Finally Breaking?

Arkane is just the latest studio to make the pivot from single-player excellence to loot-driven blunder.

Redfall is a GAAS game? Kind of just seems like a poor game, not a long-term service game. No seasonal content or cosmetic MTX.

Subscription spell is breaking. Cheap sub cheap games isn’t what most of us want.


How Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Can Avoid Marvel's Avengers Mistakes

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is starting to look like Marvel’s Avengers. Here’s what it needs to do to avoid making the same mistakes.

I think it's too late now for "need to do" now. If SS does repeat the same mistake of Avengers (which has a very high possibility), the game is already set in "code" by now.

Battle Pass is in there for a superhero game so I'm out.

no chance. The features the devs were most excited about are the features I hate about these live service type games.

Cancel the project to save whatever marketing and payroll money they have left?

Marvel's Avengers Creative Director Apologizes for the Whole Thing

The creative director of Marvel's Avengers has apologised for the game, citing a difficult development process.

"It was a challenging production, let's say," creative director Cezar Virtosu told Edge Magazine in its latest issue. The superhero smash-'em-up, which is scheduled to have dev support cut this year, is known to have hit its fair share of snags after profits fell short of recouping development costs following disappointing sales. Despite its competent solo campaign mode, the game suffered for its murky identity and glutted loot-based systems, and ultimately failed to impress.

Apology not accepted; next time, pursue fun feedback loops and creative set pieces instead of pure monetizing.

We know you need to make your money back. But, if the game just sucks at the end of the day, then you never ever will recoup dev costs.

So, next time make sure a freakin Avengers game is actually fun long-term, not just a passable package at best that floats by on character recognition…

Gamers were pretty clear ever since the game was first announced and shown, that this wasn’t going to be the kind of Avengers game they wanted. The suits and devs decided to ignore all the feedback and shove it through anyway. Which is a shame, because I feel there was a lot of potential there with the license and devs, if they had simply put all that focus and effort into an amazing SP game, without all the ‘service’ and loot nonsense.

Wasn’t a fan of the character design either btw.

mkis007211d ago

I'm glad the more games like this fail outright. Make the higher ups second guess the idea of easy money.

jbull211d ago

Eh no how about go fuck yourself, Avengers ip is shit hot with endless comics to inspire a great game yet they somehow royally fucked it up. What's their excuse for poor rogues gallery, crap boss battle and fighting the same robot's over and over again not to mention having Ms Marvel in the game, a hero nobody asked for.

Tacoboto211d ago

This title and description is misleading - he was not the creative director of the game, but was a creative director at one of the support studios of the game, as it states in the article now.

(It seems one of the sources originally claimed he was *the* Creative Director but that was Shaun Escayg, who left back to Naughty Dog in 2021)
