Deadpool game being pulled from Steam again

2013’s kooky comic book stab ’em Deadpool will soon be pulled from sale, again. It’ll vanish from the Steam store this Thursday, November 16th, though people who buy before then will get to keep and still play it. Deadpool has a 70% discount before it vanishes too, if you want to break both faces and the fourth wall. Publishers Activision never explain why their games vanish like this but presumably it’s due to licenses expiring.

whoa hallo there fourth-wall-breaking font tbh maybe skip because the game seems kinda ehhh and the game is still not megacheap so w/e Read the rest of this entry »

Wot I Think: Deadpool

I don’t know how far through Deadpool I got. I do know I don’t much care. And it seems fairly evident the game doesn’t care either. I’ve hit a bug, the thought of replaying the level through to see if it doesn’t happen again is too much, and so we’ll call it a day.

Deadpool Is A Videogame With All The Things In It

Something about the phrase 'giant Cable' is a little distressing

My Laugh-o-Tron 3000 calculates that this launch trailer for High Moon’s superhero manthumper Deadpool is 30% funny and 70% slightly annoying. I know, I know, the Laugh-o-Tron 4000 is supposed to be far more accurate, but I still stand by my old 3000 even though it once determined that Call of Duty: Black Ops was surely written by Gilbert & Sullivan.

Deadpool, which stars the titular fourth-wall-breaking, boundlessly trash-talking Marvel anti-hero, is out now in North America but is of course held hostage until Friday in the UK. It’s from the studio who brought us the most recent pair of Transformers games, and it includes flying rainbow tigers, Wolverine, dubstep, tacos, jet-powered bicycles, casual chauvinism and retro platforming.

Merc With A Release Date: Deadpool

The last time we mentioned the Deadpool game, we weren’t even sure that it was going to come out on anything other than soon-to-be previous generation consoles, but the recent announcement of a release date also confirmed a PC release. The game is out on June 25th or 28th – the exact time you can play it is dependent on your geographic position. Deadpool can saunter across the fourth wall with ease but it takes him ages to cross an ocean. He’s probably riding an inflatable rubber duck and using his own severed arm as an oar. It’s a third-person action game and I’ve popped a couple of videos below, one of which is a ‘gameplay trailer’, except it isn’t, because haHAHAHAHHA.

Mouthing Off: Deadpool Game Announced

Deadpool, shatterer of skulls, gonads and fourth walls, will be the wisecracking star of a game from Transformers developer High Moon. The absurd violence and self-referential nature of Deadpool has made him a “fan favourite”, which often means “popular but not particularly commercially viable”. It’s pleasing to see him enjoying life beyond the page, although I reckon there’s a danger that the game, like the trailer, will be a series of murders, boobs and jokes about murders and boobs that uses irony as a flimsy veil. There’s also no guarantee that it’ll come to PC, with no platforms announced yet.
