You might want to pick it up before Deadpool is taken off of Amazon and GameFly as well

Amazon - http://www.amazon.co...ywords=deadpool

 

AMAZON NO LONGER SELLS THE STEAM COPY!

Gamefly ($7.99 with code GFDJAN20) - http://digital.gamef...eadpool/5005914

 

GAMEFLY NO LONGER SELLS THE GAME!

Sigh... lovely licensing issues.

Thanks for the heads up.


It's just that simple.

ROFL, didn't this game come out only 5-6 months ago? I have to imagine there's more to the Steam removal than just a licensing issue, but who knows.

This is already going for close to $100 on Craigslist in my area (PS3).

Wow, I almost traded it in for $14 to Best Buy, thanks for this.

Picked this up for $15 recently. Wonder if I should keep it sealed.

Listing and selling for $100 are two very different things.

There's a world of difference between what people try to list it for on Craigslist and what it actually sells for.

 

I am curious what happened to it, though. (Wrong price listed?)

 

Edit:

 

Did Activision screw up the license? Was Marvel that strict on the length of the license? Did Steam screw up and de-list the game early?

 

Coincidentally, this seems to have happened after replacing Deadpool in the community choice poll with COD Ghosts. Makes me think someone at Steam pushed the wrong button when trying to replace Deadpool in the poll.

It isn't bad as much as it is funny. I watched another guy play it on Youtube and I laughed at some bits.

I second this. It's pretty mindless, but I'm a huge of Deadpool so I didn't mind paying $10 for it.

Maybe someone at Activision is just a genius. They're going to constantly stop selling licensed games months after release, artificially causing them to become "rare" and driving up demand after the initial launch sales taper off. 007 last year, Deadpool this year. Now watch everyone rush to purchase a mediocre game before it is "gone forever".

There are other forums? Where?

The crazy thing was like a few days ago it was a Daily Deal on the Steam Holiday sale. Now it's gone...

Yeah, just over 6 months ago (late June.)

It was on Steam community vote this morning but then swapped with COD Ghosts. Now we know why.

This logic is just... flawless. 


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Is the Merc with a Map Pack DLC even worth getting? I probably would've gotten it at 75% off, but It doesn't seem like anything worth $3...

Apparently its been pulled from PSN as well.


I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

This game starts great, has some priceless moments ... and then concludes with one of the worst slogs I've ever played through, followed by a mediocre song and so-so ending overall. It has some really great moments, but the repetition just becomes unbearable near the end and the actual final fight is just mindnumbingly stupid, with the game literally just throwing wave after wave of enemies at you and, for some reason, making you extremely prone to gun damage while feeling like a god at hand to hand/blade combat. I don't know .. it left me feeling decidedly mixed about the whole affair ...

I always wanted to get this game, but just never picked it up for the 360 because I figured it'll be around. Maybe I'll pick it up just to make sure I get a copy to play later on.

Edit: Not sure how true it is, but one person is claiming that Deadpool has been de-listed from their Steam library. (Another claims they still have it.)

Still have it in my library-I doubt purchased copies would ever be removed.
