It's a Deadpool game, which means that it should be bought only for 30 bucks or less. Not even the addition of Cable can warrant paying full price for the game. I wish we would stop getting solo, subpar Marvel superhero games, and get another MUA or X-Men Legends, or something similar.

Marvel Heroes, the diablo clone, so far has been riddled but bugs as beta versions of the game are apt to be, but I'll still give it a shot because it's free.

I don't know about that. I think I'll probably buy it on release as long as they have alternate costumes in it. At the very least I'll Gamefly it.

Speaking of Marvel Heroes, game looks super interesting with its Founders Program.

I Liked Wolverine on 360 alot. I Thought it was everything I wanted in a Wolverine game minus them having to force in any ties of that game with that terrible movie.

Plus don't even get me on my love of Spider-man: Web of Shadows. Easily my favorite Marvel game in general.

I love everything about this post. Totes agree.

Also, finding out Will.i.Am was Nightcrawler's dad was fucking hilarious in the Wolverine game.

They got it right with Transformers so I have faith High Moon will deliver a good Deadpool game.

And while were on the subject of comic book video games I'll throw in my love for Captain America. Up there with Wolverine Origins in great comic book movie tie-in. Fluid combat.

But I agree with GhostShark, gimmie another MUA or X-Men Legends. Those games were multiplayer goodness.

While they did get it right with Transformers everything I'm seeing from the game looks very sub-par and that worries me. Especially with the rumors that Raven already had a Deadpool game almost completed before they were put on all the CoD games.

Captain America is pretty fucking awesome. I'll give you that. I also really want another MUA. I actually liked the second one a good bit, minus the character and costume issues I had. I really wish they'd have a community vote for the next superhero game with costumes. So far it seems like the only ones that have really gotten all the ones I've loved were Spider-Man (PS1), MUA, and X-Men Legends 2. Injustice looks like it may be changing that though...

I Think MUA2 was worth it just for Iron Fist's hilariously awful one liners.

So, after reading Young Avengers #1, I am really disappointed. Gillen is not the writer for this book. Everybody sounds the same (except Kid Loki). And the direction it is heading seems pretty odd, and boring. This one may be dropped after the first arc if the writing doesn't get better.

On the other hand, both Avengers and Uncanny Avengers were amazing. Especially Avengers. Hickman is the right choice for both Avengers and New Avengers.

Also, everyone should check out Brian Wood's Mara #1 that came out of from Image this week. I got it on a whim, and it's really entertaining, far-future sci-fi with a large inspiration from global sports.

I was kind of scared based on your review of it because I was really super anticipating this comic. But I feel a bit different about it.

I'll agree Kate and Noh-Varr didn't really have much to add to the story so far, but I did think that Billy and Teddy were written fine and felt fairly similar to how they've been previously portrayed. I honestly can't say what the plot is building to so far but the ground work is just being layed, and based on how Gillen wrote Journey Into Mystery it seems like that is kind of what he likes to do is really structure his story out and then move it towards its conclusion. If anything I think where the book kind of fails is in the Kate and Noh-Varr part because that feels like this totally in your face action which doesn't contrast with the more slow deliberate pace of the later part of the book. Honestly I'm willing to see where he's taking it because I feel like once he builds it up he'll take this book someplace awesome.

Well, I have several problems with it.

I'm gonna stick it out with the book, for at least the first arc, but if it doesn't change or address certain problems after that, I will probably drop it. I should also add that I am not a huge Gillen fan. He's middle-of-the-pack in terms of creative talent and ability at Marvel. Plus, he and Greg Land have ruined Tony Stark/Iron Man for me, so there is that.

I read the first issue of the new Uncanny X-Force and I actually liked that too, I like how it's really tying into the ending of the previous series but jumping ahead some months. My only minor gripe is the seeming need to have a lot of characters swear (which seems a little out of place) and having them do so using solid black bars which I find fairly distracting.

Uncanny Avengers was good as well, except for Rouge and Scarlet Witch doing hardly anything but hopefully that will improve now that they aren't being mind controlled anymore (also hopefully that book can start getting on a normal monthly schedule, haha).

So how many of you buy the actual comic book vs. a digital copy? Those that do buy the comic book, do you redeem your digital copy or what do you do with them?

I buy physical for everything I prefer to have real copies of (anything related to Batman, Spidey, Young Avengers, or Venom) and everything else I use digital (usually torrents) while waiting for the trades.

I buy everything physical that I'm following, but I also buy sale stuff that interests me on Comixology and use it to buy and read back issues as well, since my comic shop doesn't have a lot of back issues, so I can get caught up on something and start reading it physically or check out an older series I'm interested in. Also, I do tend to redeem the marvel digital copies but I just read my physical one.

Paul Giamatti might be playing the Rhino. Sure he can play stubborn as Fuck, but I feel he would make a better Doctor Octopus.
Anyway I hope he gets it, especially since he was reported as saying this would be his dream role back in 2011.

Must resist bashing on Amazing Spiderman. Paul Giamattiis a pretty good actor though.

Young justice got cancelled which is pretty upsetting for me.

This for me too. Even if I had a tablet I don't think I'd utilize the feature.

With that said I have subscribed to Marvel's online library for a month just to catch up with some stories I wanted to read like Nextwave Agents of HATE, Venom, and a bunch more I can't remember.

At least that means they will have no choice but to put it on Netflix so I can finally watch it.

What? Young Justice got cancelled? Then again, I don't even know when it airs.. If the WB showed it on the CW on Saturdays, I might tune in religiously, but these days, I can't be bothered with such shows unless they're on dvd. sigh.
I'm kinda worried about the next Batman cartoon, which is in CG and is supposed to be a lot more violent.

I buy both digital and physical. It's all about getting the best price. Some friends pass along their digital codes for Marvel books, so I get them that way. Otherwise, I either wait for a sale (or wait for the price drop, like Walking Dead) or go with the graphic novel.

If they could've kept a stable airing schedule Young Justice wouldn't have needed to be cancelled. I really enjoyed it.

Cartoon Network sucks at supporting shows that aren't called Gumball, Adventure Time or Regular Show. I'm even surprised that Young Justice lasted this long before they tried nothing and gave up.

I dropped it after Vol 3. Loved the art, but the story put me to sleep and it was odd to read.

You should have consulted us first and we would've all told you how bad Gillen's writing and Land's pencils are on the book. 8-) But hey, more readers, so that is a plus.

I remember stumbling across it somewhere and thinking it sounded interesting but I haven't looked into actually purchasing it yet, but with both you and GhostShark really praising it I'll probably consider doing so.

But hey, more readers, so that is a plus.


Speaking of new readers, I actually think I've gotten my sister into comics, although she doesn't post on CAG (her not being that into video games). For Christmas I got her a couple of the Fables deluxe books since she loves fairy tale type stories and having just started that series somewhat recently I knew it was totally awesome, I don't think she's managed to get to reading those yet, but I'm still convinced she's really going to enjoy them.

But for her birthday which isn't long after Christmas I decided to get her some X-Men comics since she was saying she was kind of interested to read about them since she really likes and enjoys the characters but she's never read a comic about them. So I got her the first TPB of Wolverine & The X-Men, since I really enjoyed the start of that story (although I haven't been all that impressed with where it's gone recently but the last issue was decent) and she read and said she thought it was good, but I also got her all of the current issues of All-New X-Men and due to her being fairly busy she didn't have a chance to read them until just recently but she told me she thought they were really awesome and she might actually look into getting the issues of it as they come out. :D
