Child Of Light, Darkness and Video Games

The SDCC news just keeps on coming, and this time, it’s a big one. For me, anyway.

You may have guessed by now that I’m a fan of all things X-Men, across all genres (well, maybe not movies anymore, to be honest.) The fandom extends to video games as well, and X-Men: Legends and its sequel have gone through more plays than any other game on any other console. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance may not have gotten the same amount of play, but as the spriritual successor to X-Men: Legends it’s only just a matter of time.

We’re still waiting for the full line-up of playable characters to be announced for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 but one of the earliest videos from SDCC has me sufficiently excited about the game’s release to pre-order (maybe even on more than one platform…or would that be too much?) Jean Grey, perhaps my favourite X-Men character, is playable, a sure-fire way to mean that this disc won’t be leaving my console for a good few months.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is due for release September 15, 2009.

    We don’t need people like Jean Grey in this game, it needs more awesome people like Jessica Drew.

      Admittedly, I actually don’t get how/why Jean is in it; at least Jessica Drew would make sense. But you can’t deny that Jean is also a decidedly awesome character to include (even if just a pallet-swap for Invisible Woman/Magneto/Dr. Strange from the first MUA.)

        She might be awesome to include but I don’t like the blatant pallet swap with her fusion powers. She so far has the same spin things around attack that Storm and Thor have though the telekineses bits seem unique.

        I know my bitching is invalid though since i’ll get it on launch day and play the shit out of it.
