Yeah whatever. Now make a movie based on the video game that doesn't suck.

Updated that for you. It's amazing how many complete strangers people are willing to add, just to get mutually assured propagation of the latest game's scrip.

Normally, any Marvel "Alliance" game is good, if a bit formulaic. X-Men Legends 2, and the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series have been solid titles that remind me of what made Diablo good - although from looking at the screens it seems like this is an Alliance game in name only.

I've played this game a little bit and its not bad; definitely one of the better facebook games out there. You're a generic SHIELD agent and you team up with up to two team members at a time for turn based battles; there are 5 character types + 1 generic untyped class that go around in a "paper beats rock" fashion.
Gathering the required command points to unlock additional characters takes the most time, as some of them take a lot of points, but the basic story and missions are already, and it's less glitchy then some similar games out there like Dragon Age legends.

The biggest problem this game has (or used to have, I haven't played much lately) is when they would make on update while you were mid combat and it would force to you refresh and restart the fight, which was painful for some difficult boss fights.

Hell, the video game for X-Men Origins: Wolverine was better than the movie.

Spiderman 2 is still one of the best Spiderman games, and The Punisher came out not long after the movie and was awesome.

Short of the Arkham Asylum games, I don't think there are any good DC games (at least in the last 2 generations).
 
2012-04-30 06:58:04 PM
The Avengers is pretty much a video game. "Okay, who didn't fight each other yet? Spin the wheel. We have Iron Man and The Hulk. BEGIN". And that's pretty much the movie.

WHAT? HOW DARE YOU! SUPERMAN 64 WAS THE GREATEST GAME EVER- No, sorry, I can't do it. This game was so bad, it made my colon bleed.

I refuse to believe there's a facebook game that doesn't suck ass. Which is really rather moot because I don't use facebook anyway.

I've progressed pretty far in it with only one other friend playing it. Sure, it moves faster if you pay for it (which I won't), but they fixed an early problem where you had to pester friends to get new missions. Now, no pestering is needed. It and Risk are the only Facebook strategy games I've found that are fully playable singe-player.

I would love a nation or city building one that didn't require me to ask my friends for drills and crap.

Waittasec. Holdthefarkingtrain!

..hopefully make Britons stop thinking of a young Joanna Lumley in a tight rubber suit in a Seventies TV show whenever they hear the word 'Avengers'.

Hopefully?!!?

First off, NO ONE should be hoping to discourage thinking about that:
www.personal.u-net.com

Secondly, That was the NEW Avengers, for the best use of a 'tight rubber suit", you have to go with Diana Rigg

Or just "tight"

Now. As you were. Talk about cartoons. Or Facespace or whatever.

How did Spider-Man 2 suck in any form?
 
2012-04-30 08:40:14 PM
I played it, its actually good, but I benefit from having several comic book loving friends that wanted to try it as well, even then it reached a point where if I wanted to do anything with the game I had to add a bunch of people in a setting that didnt allow them to see anything from my profile just to get their points and advance in the game.
I feel like im admitting to eating at mcdonalds or something, i feel bad for admitting this was actually fun.

Well, Dreamcast made out pretty well on pre-existing properties to games. Spiderman, Record of the Lodoss War, Sword of the Berserk, Arabian Nights. Dreamcast had some really good license games.

While that game did indeed not suck, I doubt you will find many people willing to argue that Riddick is a superhero in any conventional sense.

Mua2 was shiat. When the formula was popular, they made a teen titans game. Not sure how good it was

Agreed. I'm up to level 23 and am still surprised that it's enjoyable. The leveling up and research are annoying as well, as it takes forever to build up the points, but the way it's presented feels like a comic book. Both the dialogue and action are accurate representations of the characters they're portraying, and the storyline is plausible in the sense that it would have worked for a story arc at some point.

Im going to say without getting near the game that the biggest problem is the" generic shield agent" part.

Read TFA...

'Real' gamers usually look down on Facebook game addicts with the same pitying derision someone who enjoys an occasional glass of red might look at a tramp sitting in a hedge drinking creosote.

I lol'd because it's true

but it's paced well enough that it's perfectly possible to play without spending a penny

There's a lot of grinding and finger crossing, but as you level up it goes quicker.

Somehow, I couldn't help thinking that 'Agent Waugh' - my character - was the weak link in the chain. But as the fights start to reach the strategic, almost puzzle-like level of 'proper' RPGs, even Agent Waugh started to pull his weight.

Your character really only contributes as the Medic/Buffer until your 3rd slot opens up. 2 Buffs and a weapon finally makes you useful.

And testicles

Lego Batman. Cutesy? Yes. Awesome? Double hell yes.

Avengers Alliance doesn't suck but it isn't exactly good either. It's a weak, turn-based game that manages to take costumization to such a poor level Square Enix probably laughed when they saw it. I mean if anyone's gonna ruin Final Fantasy's gameplay, it might as well be the experts.

I remember sitting down and playing it for the first time - neither me nor my friend could figure out how to get 2 player mode going... because obviously a beat-em-up centred around Spiderman and Venom teaming up would have a 2 player mode like Final Fight, Streets of Rage and Double Dragon......

Yeah....even as a kid it stunned me they made the game without co-op. It didn't last long with us.

Never bothered with the follow-up "Seperation Anxiety" because I figured they'd do something else stupid like leave out the jump button.

Yeah, plus completing the special chapters helps get you some nice weaponry. Get 5 stars on all the chapter missions and you get a golden gun that does some good damage. The Hulk mission also randomly nets you a nifty Gamma tool that acts basically like the Bruiser bonus but for any hero. Stack that on Hulk and he's a beast.
