Title: PS3/360 (Vicarious Visions' version) talk and Official News [renamed]
Post by: jonchang on July 25, 2008, 03:31am
This is the thread to post the official stuff released from Activision. A majority of this comes through the trailers released by them.

CONSOLES

Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, DS (according to Wikipedia)

TRAILERS

CHARACTERS

Captain America
Iron Man
Thor
Hulk
Mr. Fantastic
Thing
Human Torch
Invisible Woman
Spider-Man
Storm
Wolverine
Daredevil
Green Goblin
Venom
Luke Cage

FUSIONS

I have posted the descriptions of the Fusions in white text (spoiler text, as I like to call them) directly after the combinations. So far, we have:

Invisible Woman and Iron Man (from trailer):

IW creates a telekinetic field in which Iron Man overloads with his laser, creating an effective bright bomb.

Spider-Man and Iron Man (trailer):

Spidey grabs hold of as many enemies with his weblines, and brings them together, all trapped, right in the path of Iron Man's destructive repulsor beam

Daredevil and Iron Man (Phillip's link):

Twirling on the floor whilst whipping the enemies around him in a radius, Daredevil sends them all airborne. Iron Man hovers overhead and blasts back down enemies that DD sends up to him

Hulk and Wolverine/Daredevil (from trailer/link):

Hulk spins around with Wolverine in his grasp to gain momentum, and unleashes him in a perfect fastball special strike.

Human Torch/Iron Man and Thing/Hulk (trailer/link):

Thing rips a piece of the ground, in which Torch ignites. Still in his hands, Thing leaps up and hurls the superheated fragment down, creating a destructive explosion, which knocks every adversary off their feet

Invisible Woman and Hulk (link):

The "Hamster Ball" (excuse the editorial laugh) :laugh: . IW surrounds Hulk in a protective encapsulement, as he rampages around the map crushing enemies under his weight.

FEATURES

The Havok physics engine is going to be used more, making more interactive environments. (for example, when Thing hurled the forklift, it broke apart, and those parts could be used as weapons)

The conversations can change how the missions will be carried out. Players can choose to use an aggressive, defensive, or diplomatic dialogue.

Camera controls are also going to be changed. The camera will be more fluid, and during one mission, the camera pans out to view the entire city street.

Game Informer scans: http://www.penciljack.com/forum/showthread.php?p=923560

Found by Philip in http://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php?topic=2133.0

Notice how the fusions from the Hulk and Wolverine are the same as the Hulk and Daredevil one in the scans. The same applies to the Human Torch and Thing one with the Iron Man and Hulk in the scan.

Yes. Unfortunately this thread is for official news, and Colossus hasn't yet made the official roster, and I would appreciate official stuff to be posted here exclusively. Sorry if I may sound harsh, but I would not like thoughts to clutter this thread.Thank you for understanding. :)

Post by: Gevth on August 10, 2008, 07:29pm
Here's an article that hasn't been brought up before. It's most important features:

-Brief description of the Main Menu.
-Confirmation that both Cable and Bishop will appear, but not a word on wether they'll be playable or not.
-Characters move lips when talking, and not only in cinematics.
-Invisible Woman-Daredevil fusion description: Invisible Woman created a force-field bubble that captured a group of enemies in a small globe, and Daredevil quickly incapacitated them with a variety of kicks and punches.
-Every pair of characters will have a Fusion power

http://www.1up.com/do/previewPage?cId=3168980&p=4


My thoughts:
I believe both Cable and Bishop will be NPCs.
I've mentioned this before, but now it's confirmed that any 2 characters will have a Fusion power, I think this explains the low ammount of characters compared to what everyone expected:
24 characters means 276 fusion; 25 (original next-gen roster) = 300; 33 (Gold Edition Roster) = 528 ; 45 (what we dreamt) = 990.
It seems that Civil War thing is much more important than what I originally thought. Not sure I like this, I would've rather have a more traditional hero vs. villain story. Oh, well, hope it delivers anyway.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on August 10, 2008, 07:49pm
Yeah, but remember that thus far they're reusing a lot of fusions:

Hulk + Wolverine/Daredevil = Fastball Special
Thing + Human Torch/Iron Man = Heat rock and throw it

In the end I'd bet there's only about 150-200 unique fusions at best.  And while they're cool, so far they just don't seem cool enough to be worth the effort.

From gamefaqs forums  (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/marvelultimateallianceiifusion/show_msgs.php?topic_id=m-1-45967749&pid=951211):

Quote from: jonezz49
www.oxmonline.com/article/previews/m-r/marvel-ultimate-alliance-ii-fusion

in the article, it confirms that aspects of Civil War will be used. It reconfirms Green Goblin and Venom as playable. It also states a team is sent to stop 'former buddy' Cable from uploading sensitive material date. Enroute to stop Cable, the team fights a mini-boss - the mighty Hercules!! it also confirms that the fusion moves will be repetitive - Hulk can toss Daredevil as a fastball special (just like Hulk can do it to Wolverine)

Follow the link, friends! Enjoy at least a little bit of news from the long draught!!

call me- 'the guy that advised Tarkin to evacuate before the Death Star blew up."


The new info:
-Hercules is a mini-boss

Additionally, there's a new enemy in the center of the next picture I haven't seen before:

I keep close tabs on the Wiki, so as of this moment it's correct.  If you look REAAAAALLY close in the trailer you're notice War Machine and Multiple Man.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: ragincajun on February 07, 2009, 08:29pm
I thought that was Jamie Madrox that i saw in the back there.  It's interesting that they put him in the game.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Philip on February 08, 2009, 01:56am
Dagger, Black Widow, Cable and Hercules also appear in the trailer :)

Post by: Teancum on February 08, 2009, 09:46am
Yeah, I'm still not 100% certain that's dagger. That could very well be Emma.

Yeah, where do you see Dagger/Emma?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: haydnc95 on February 08, 2009, 11:56am
i know i saw Multiple Man, Hercules, Black Widow and Maria Hill, but i didnt see Emma/Dagger anywhere !?
what number is she on !??

i know i saw Multiple Man, Hercules, Black Widow and Maria Hill, but i didnt see Emma/Dagger anywhere !?
I'm pretty sure I found Dagger/Emma.  In the same clip where you see Multiple Man, hit pause and look behind and a little to the left of Cable.  You'll see a woman with blonde hair and white clothes kneeling or crouching.  I'm thinking its most likely Dagger because she has been confirmed to be in the game.

Post by: haydnc95 on February 08, 2009, 12:59pm
to be honest, id like it to be Emma but its most likeley gunna be Dagger, but i cant see Cloak anywhere
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: nodoubt_jr on February 08, 2009, 02:23pm
its probably Dagger, she was part of Secret Avengers during the Civil War.

heres a screenshot with both Multiple Man and Dagger/Emma Frost
(it does look more like Emma, but i still think Dagger makes more sense)

When you choose a side in the game, will it limit your roster of allies?

Post by: Philip on February 09, 2009, 02:04pm
Cloack and Dagger have not been confirmed. Some characters might appear in the videos but might not be playable. So we have to wait and see gameplay to confirm certain characters. I think the list with those characters was :

Hercules
Cable
Bishop
Black Widow
War Machine
Cloack
Dagger
Multiple Man
Nick Fury

Dagger has been semi-confirmed based on the IMDB cast list and her minor appearance in the trailer.

to be honset im not sure Cloak has been in any of the trailers, but with a Dagger, there must be a Cloak, right?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on February 09, 2009, 05:19pm
Yeah, it's safe to assume I'd say.  I haven't added him to Wikipedia since there hasn't been an official confirmation, though.

Post by: haydnc95 on February 09, 2009, 05:58pm

Dagger has been semi-confirmed based on the IMDB cast list and her minor appearance in the trailer.

That doesnt mean anything.She could be an NPC character that appears in a video.That way she stills need a voice :)
Oh and In the trailer Dagger is over a fallen character(the character appears to be african and wears black clothes) It could be Cloack.

Post by: brohara on February 10, 2009, 08:34am
Interesting that they said there could be some connection between the first game and this one. They said something might be in the works to recognize that you finished the first MUA. Also worth noting that they are aware of the downloadable content buzz, even though they have nothing to announce yet.

...Downloadable comic missions, here we come. (Ok, maybe I'm being a bit too hopeful ;-)
Would be awesome though and this does seem to be an emerging trend. Here's hoping!

like so far there isnt any sign of  :spiderwoman:  :deadpool:  :moonk:  :ronin:  :genis:  :elektra:  :iceman:  :warbird:  :silvers:

Post by: Gevth on February 18, 2009, 03:54pm
There is a strong rumor circulating in the official site, that Psylocke is going to be playable.

The base for it is that the MUA1 site moderator (Kalina) has stated that his/her favourite character is in MUA2, and apparently that character is Psylocke, according to the people who were part of the MUA1 forums.

It's still a rumor, but I'm willing to give this one more credibility than to the most of them.

EDIT:

Here's what Kalina wrote, by the way:
Quote from: Kalina" date="1233732178
Hey guys - this is Kalina.  :-) 

Like Alex said, I'm still around and involved in MUA2.  I'll drop in every now and then, but it's Alex you will be hearing from regularly and trust me, you are in good hands!  Alex can give you insight straight from the developer, and he's promised me that he's going to drop in some concept art from time to time so that you can get the real behind-the-scenes look at MUA2, and in some cases, see if you can figure out who the characters are.  Might not be so obvious from the start...

I can tell you this, I'm pretty excited about this sequel to MUA.  There's going to be tons of news in the coming weeks and months, starting with two new characters being revealed at New York Comic Con.  What else can I tell you?  Let's see...

- There are definitely going to be some new playable characters that have never been playable in MUA before.  Stay tuned to Alex on that...

- I'm excited to say my *favorite* Marvel character of all time is in MUA2! I've been pushing to get this character in the game ever since MUA1, and the great thing is that the MUA1 VIPs helped me out because this is a character you voted for on the original MUA community site.  You'll find out who that character is at or before San Diego Comic Con...

- There's some stuff in MUA2 that's all new and is going to take the game to the next level I think.  Keep an eye out later this week for a brand new trailer that is going to show you a little flavor of what I'm talking about.

- If anyone figures out one of the two characters we are going to reveal at New York Comic Con, and comes to New York Comic Con as that character, we are going to give you a special prize (seriously, think a game signed by Stan Lee or something cool like that). We'll be in booth 1331.

That's it from me.  I might drop in from time to time, but until then, I leave you in VERY good hands with Alex! 


Yours,


Kalina

Get ready to sing a happy song, Marvel gaming gurus, as Thunderbolts veteran Songbird will be available as a playable character in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 when the hotly-anticipated new video game hits consoles this fall.

So apparently, Iron Man and Songbird's fusion will have Songbird creating a prism with her powers and Iron Man shooting through it, having the ray refracted in all directions.

Also, it's curious that in the Marvel.com article they say:
Songbird marks the 14th character revealed from what will be a cast of over 24 playable Marvel heroes.

On the MUAII offical site, Venom and Green Goblin haven't been confirmed, as they aren't on the trailer and they aren't on the list of characters. But with Songbird confirmed I'm sure that these two are also in it. The site will probably confirm them later on, because even though Mr. Fantastic and Storm were confirmed originally, the site officialy confirmed them after the comic-con. I'm guessing that maybe they haven't been started on or the game's makers don't want anybody to see them yet.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Gevth on March 17, 2009, 07:04pm
The curious part is the "over 24 playable Marvel heroes". That's a really strange and specific number.  Why not "over 20", or another round number? Did they choose that one just because they wanted to disprove all the rumours of only 24 characters that have been circulating since last year's E3?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on March 17, 2009, 07:12pm
Oh I'm sorry for misunderstanding you. I think this confirms that the 24 characters don't include unlockables. That's good news for us then.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on March 18, 2009, 01:02am
This means that there will be 25 characters. It's the same thing as all those furniture store commercials saying "Under £500!" when it is actually just £499.99.

Post by: Teancum on March 18, 2009, 06:53am
It's still not impressive, though.  I really expected them to have quite a bit more than MUA1, like a total of 30-40 characters.  If it's under 30 before any DLC I'll be less-than-impressed with the roster.  Especially with characters like Songbird in there.  I mean Songbird?  Really?  I could see her as a DLC character, but not one that comes with the game.  Give me the iconic Marvel characters, not some b-grade characters.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on March 18, 2009, 06:55am
I concur whole-heartedly. Especially when you can easily list over 30 iconic characters with relative ease.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on March 18, 2009, 07:00am
Oh yeah, within seconds you could come up with 30 VERY iconic characters.  Now, that being said not everyone would say they love X or Y character, but they'd agree they're iconic.

B-Grade characters/characters with a specific fan base should be left to DLC.  For example I'd much rather have Cyclops or Gambit in the roster instead of Songbird rather than having to pay to download them later.  Make Songbird DLC, that way I don't have to get her.  Still, it's good business.  Save some heavy hitters for DLC and everyone'll buy the content.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on March 18, 2009, 07:36am
They probably added Songbird because she's a popular Thunderbolt member. I myself was hoping for her to be in the roster, but only cause it is inevitable that the Thunderbolts will be in.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Gevth on March 18, 2009, 07:45am
I'm of the opinion that after Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Wolverine, Daredevil, Punisher and the Fantastic Four (and maybe Cyclops and Storm), everyone else is just gravy. I mean, those are Marvel's A-listers, and as much as I like someone like Gambit, for example, he's only popular between a specific generation of fans (those of us who grew up in the 90's).

In the official boards, there are a lot of people who were happy with Songbird getting in, because that means there'll probably be a post-Civil War Thunderbolts team, a book that was both popular and really good, based by the ratings at IGN.

My point is that maybe Songbird is this generation's Psylocke or Colossus, a character that is mainly popular because she's part of a extremely popular team (with all due respect to those who may consider I'm demeaning Psylocke or Colossus).

I think I'll do that, but not 30, I'm gonna put every character I think is important enough to be in a game such as this, the core of Marvel Comics (all far more important than Songbird).

Avengers: Captain America, Scarlet Witch, She-Hulk, Wonder Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Falcon, Quicksilver, Black Panther, Vision, Miss Marvel, Hank Pym, Wasp, Hercules

Fantastic Four: Human Torch, Mister Fantastic, The Thing, Invisible Woman

X-Men: Cyclops, Jean, Iceman, Cable, Angel, Beast, Storm, Colossus, Bishop, Jubilee, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Psylocke, Shadowcat, Rogue, Gambit, Prof. X, Emma Frost

Defenders: Doctor Strange, Namor, Hulk, Silver Surfer

Others: Blackbolt, Adam Warlock, Quasar, Moonknight, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, Ghost Rider, Shang-Chi, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Sentry, Captain Marvel, Daredevil, Elektra, Deadpool, Black Cat, Punisher, Nick Fury

Marvel probably wouldn't exist without these characters, and the list didn't even include villians.

I gotta be honest.  I'm still not impressed with the game.  It's all effect-based.  Show me variety.  I want to see the melee combos, or some guy getting head-butted by Luke Cage.  Something like that.

I won't be happy unless Jean Grey, Punisher, Gambit, Ms. Marvel, and Psylocke are confirmed. And Cyclops. However I can live without all of them except for Jean Grey who I desperately need. War Machine wouldn't be bad either.

War Machine is already in, at least as a NPC.  He's seen in a trailer.

I was reading in this Brazilian website the confirmed roster:
http://www.omelete.com.br/game/100019037/Marvel_Ultimate_Alliance_2.aspx

apparently there will be 24 playable characters, 17 confirmed:

1. Captain America
2. Daredevil
3. Electro
4. Hulk
5. Human Torch
6. Iron Fist
7. Ironman
8. Invisible Woman
9. Lucia von Bardas
10. Luke Cage
11. Mr. Fantastic
12. Songbird
13. Spider-Man
14. Storm
15. Thing
16. Thor
17. Wolverine

NPC:
1. Bishop
2. Black Widow
3. Cable
4. Green Goblin
5. Hercules
6. Maria Hill
7. Multiple-Man
8. Nick Fury
9. She-Hulk
10. Venom
11. War Machine

Seriously? Lucia von Bardas? This character is so obscure that comicvine hasn't got any info or pics of her. If this is true it's truly ridiculous.

I'm gonna miss Black Widow, and I wish She-Hulk was playable. =/
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on April 07, 2009, 04:30am
All the sources I've read say Lucia is one of the villains, and that's been more than one source.  I'd say they're taking the Wikipedia entry and making guesses.  They didn't even cite where they got the information from.  I call BS.

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on April 07, 2009, 07:28am
It is.  It's right on the official site's synopsis.  But she hasn't been confirmed as a playable, but a boss, which is why that list is probably BS.  Still, Secret War is the, and I quote "Jumping Off Point".  So I doubt Lucia is the main villain, but rather the story-starting villain.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Phoenix on April 07, 2009, 09:00am
That list cant be true as Electro and Lucia are villains. Ad Venom and Green Goblin have been confirmed by a new character round up on IGN.

They definitely got that info from Wikipedia, bad translation me thinks!

I'd prefer Bishop to be honest. He was soo good in legends 2. Imagine what he'd be like in MUA2. Cable is a NO for me. If Dr. Strange, Invisible Woman, Magneto, Psylocke or Jean make it into the game, there will just be  far too many characters in the game with telekinesis and I don't like that. Bishop is far better.

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: BLaw on May 14, 2009, 07:55am
He's wearing a different costume because you can choose costumes? Why the h*** would there be an Astonishing Wolverine, Modern Luke and Classic Thor?

Either it's Ironman or Colossus (I think the latter because Ironman has smaller boots than that. It would make sense if he's in his classic red & gold costume, because it's those colors I see on the picture. His figure and appearance would also match.. The lighting on his body too (what's white is slightly purple/pink)

We're trying to make waaaay to many assumptions based on a screenshot where you can see a boot.  ONE BOOT.  You can't even see the whole other boot (not that it matters, who wears two different boots?).  Let it go guys, there's no way to figure it out by one stinkin' boot.

I hope its not Juggernaut, i want some classic marvel characters mixed with some new classic characters, not some stupid villain turned hero turned villain again.  I wouldnt mind fighting against him, but playing with him is a no for me.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on May 15, 2009, 01:15pm
Same here. I'm starting to really think about not buying this game. I mean I don't want Juggernaut wasting a perfectly good slot. I'll probablly only buy this game now if Jean Grey is in as a playable character.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: BLaw on May 15, 2009, 01:46pm
I'd say Jean out, but that's my opinion :P

Psylocke instead of Jean, that would be interesting.

NDJR does have a point: Jugs IS a villain. He was an X-Man though.. But again a villain (just saw this :P )
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: whiteking on May 15, 2009, 02:11pm
Juggernaut? Really? Come on! there are a lot of better characters to be included in the game (sorry for the fans), why Juggernaut, maybe a DLC or a boss, but playable? I mean the hulk and luke cage (woooow I can't wait :eek:  :nervous: :ugh: )are already in...

Psylocke instead of Jean, that would be interesting.

Agree, but If they are going to include a sexy telepath in the game, Emma Frost would be my choice, haha, damn! we need more females in this game, especially a psychic one ;)

Same here. I'm starting to really think about not buying this game. I mean I don't want Juggernaut wasting a perfectly good slot.

I'm with you, what the heck is goin on, why they include characters like this? Juggernaut, I can't believe it!

Ps. Another big sorry for Juggernaut fans, nothing personal :)

And that's the point my friend, this is a HERO game, he's a villian again now, but the most important thing is that I don't remember Juggernaut fighting in the civil war or be in the story line, or affected by, for example, as the xmen, they are neutral, but you can see the original 4 xmen (4, no 5 since Jean is dead in this story) trying to protect the 198 mutants in Civil War x-men, or Emma talking to Iron man about the best choice for the remaining mutants in the world, or Bishop in the front line...

Post by: whiteking on May 19, 2009, 05:43pm
Mmm, so Juggernaut, well although he's not my fav, I have to admit that he look quite well, in fact he has one of the best design, at least for me, compared to the design of other characters that appear in the trailers and screenshots, Deadpool, another one that is not my favorite, but he's fun and he was good in the first MUA, so yes, he's a great adition to the team :)

Venom Eh?! hmmmm.. hope is it the real box then :D
but yet ANOTHER male character ¬¬

Another male?? so this game is a little bit sexist, lol, if they are going to release another male, Cyclops would be my choice.
And yes! we need more super females here!

Does anyone know if their going to be doing the team specials like they've done in MUA and XML2, like when you got four women, it's Femme Fatale. Cause if they are, they have to have another female. It just wouldn't be right.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on May 20, 2009, 06:19pm

I mean we only have 3 females right now. And there are only a few slots left. I would like Jean Grey, Emma Frost, Psylocke, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Wasp, Elektra, Spider-Woman, Scarlet Witch, and Black Cat. I really doubt that all of them will make it in though.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: BLaw on May 21, 2009, 03:34am
I'd say Frost, Psylocke, She-Hulk, Ms Marvel, Elektra, Spider Woman, Black Cat, Storm, Firestar and Mystique for females. That would definetely do the trick.

I doubt half of those make it.

Yes, technically the game is for everyone, but let's be totally honest, how many women/girls compared to men/boys are going to go out and buy this game?  I'd say less than 20% of the players will be female, and I'd say that's even pushing it. 



If you want females, you need to get over to the Official Site's forums and make your voice heard.  Whining about it here won't do you any good, but pushing for them over there might get you DLC characters at least (at this point in development they probably won't add characters to the roster -- not enough time to finish em')

It's the same with a PC version.  Don't cry about that here, go make your stand on the Official Forums.  If you get a PC thread going maybe enough people will join your cause.

Beleive it or not, there are a lot of women who DO play these games, I know quite a few of them actually. I'm not  sayin it's even between women and men, but there are a lot.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: BLaw on May 21, 2009, 01:05pm
Ye but TC is right, just take a look at MUA1, there are like 4 standard females, 2 dlc. If I'm correct. If I'm not, I'd say 5 or 6 others. Compare that to the males, and you get the point.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on May 21, 2009, 01:11pm
There were no DLC females in MUA1. The only extra females were Ronin and Black Widow in the PSP version.

Newslad, the guy who releases new news, has said that Juggernaut is only for the PS3 and 360 version. The Wii is getting something different.

Boo! I say. Console exclusives SUCK. Then again, Vicarious Visions is only making the PS3 and 360 versions.

You're telling me that you know "a lot of women who DO play these games"?  Yeah, uh huh.  I'm not saying girls/women don't play video games, but the fact is they market 98% of video games to teenage/young adult boys/men. Plus do you really think characters like Emma Frost are marketed towards women?  Yeah, that's what every woman wants; to play as a half-naked woman who's very... umm... "blessed". 

Don't make this something it isn't.  This isn't about female gamers.

Completely agree on this!

And i do want more female characters, but i dont think there should be a quota of how many women characters must be in the game, just pick the best characters for the storyline and hopefully some great women characters make it in.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: BLaw on May 21, 2009, 01:45pm
@ Dihan: I was talking about OUR DLC females like Ronin and BW :P Because they weren't included for PC.. Which makes the whole women thing even worse :P
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on May 21, 2009, 02:05pm
For females I really only think they should add Jean Grey and Ms. Marvel. All others are ones I would like as extra if there is room.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Grig 32 on May 22, 2009, 08:36pm
Personally I always thought Ronin was a cool exclusive - her modded version rocks in MUA 1 on the PC but thats not really the subject at the moment ;)

If I was to want more female characters I'd have to go for Rogue, Psylocke, Magma and Kitty Pride - and not the ditzy cheerleader version from the new ultimate comics :P I mean the cool blade user from the OS.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on May 23, 2009, 06:17am
Kitty, Psylocke, and Rogue are all cool but I doubt that they would include all of them. I'm betting Psylocke especially since she returned to the X-Men. Magma however is not that of an important X-Man though. Maybe Jean too since it is technically confirmed that Jean is returning sometime like in UXM 511 plus all the clues that show that Madyelene is gonna revive her.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on May 23, 2009, 06:27am
One of the old MUA1 official forums moderators said that her favourite character was going to be in the game. Her favourite is known to be Psylocke. Whether it's true or not is still to be seen.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on May 23, 2009, 07:04am
I hope that it is true. I remember reading somewhere that Psylocke was originally planned to be in MUAI. And Longshot was gonna be a PSP Exclusive.

I wasn't saying that I believed they'd be in there - I just meant that if I had to CHOOSE female characters. Those would be the one's I choose.

it would make sence!

I somehow doubt that, if Hulk is going to be in this game - and since She-Hulk, like Magma and Kitty, is a relatively unimportant character - it doesn't really make any sense for her to be in this game.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Just to point something out:

Vicarious Visions is only making the 360 and PS3 versions so I expect it to be a repeat of Wolverine Origins - we get all the news for those two versions and absolutely nothing on the rest. I know that the Wii version of Wolverine Origins is a completely different game to the 360 and PS3 versions so I suspect the same will be true for MUA2 and PS2, Wii, DS and PSP.

In short:

If you don't own a 360 or PS3 don't expect to be playing the game you've been following for all this time.

I've bought the Wii version of Wolv. Orgi. last week, and after playing the game I saw a review of the X360 version on the telly. Indeed a completely different game, and I'm not talking about graphics, but also controls and levels (story-wise).

I guess VV focus on the newest-gen consoles to promote their qualities like "looky me, I made a bad*ss game for the latest gen-consoles". At least, that's the impression I get.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on May 27, 2009, 03:31am
I would say it's more of a "It costs tens of millions of dollars to make this game, and we don't have enough money or time to develop for all platforms ourselves, so lets call in some friends to help us out."

depends on if the story is better or not i think. i bought Splinter Cell: Double Agent for PS2, my friend bought it for X-Box 360. I learned that in order to make the graphics super hi-tech on the 360, parts of the story were cut out. so half of the game didnt make sense. But the PS2 version kept it, making it a better game IMO :)

This isn't necessarily true.
I have MUA1 for the PS3, PS2, (both of which were by Raven) and PSP, (which was by Vicarious Visions) and they were all - essentially - the same game, only the PS3 had shinier graphics, and the PSP had a few more characters.

I much prefer Eddie Brock as Venom. I hate Mac Gargan and honestly I can't wait till he dies in the comics. No offense to you Mac Gargan fans. Nice to see Eddie though as Anti-Venom in the comics. It would be a cool alternate skin for Venom in the game. The Invisible Woman flying in the mural also gives hope that in the game she can fly.

I'm watching the Gamespot preview of MUA2 with actual gameplay footage. I've noticed something very evident:

Juggernaut uses the exact same animations for his grab smash as Colossus and the Hulk. The one where he grabs an enemy and uses them as a weapon.

Identical.

EDIT: It just finished.

Some things: They showed the beginning and they had Juggernaut, Storm, Captain America and Songbird playable. Two fusions were shown: Captain America reflecting lightning off his shield and Juggernaut running around in a pink spiked hamster ball. The game is very zoomed out - it may be a bit difficult to tell where everything is but that may have been the low quality of the stream.

The first boss is Deadpool. Once he's beaten he offers to join your team at which point you have different responses.

The trailer for Green Goblin was shown. He looks quite cool.

By the way, here's a picture of the alleged character selection screen (or at least the one they should in the E3): http://s300.photobucket.com/albums/nn20/vanillaspida/?action=view&current=1.png

And it appears that this female can fly, so I think that the only female that had an important role in the civil war and can fly as well is Ms. Marvel. I don't remember anyone else, maybe Spider Woman, but the silhouette makes me think that is Carol.
So I think she's in.
Talking about the video posted by Dihan, Songbird looks really fun to play and I like the butterfly effect while she's flying. I'm curious about the Green Goblin and Venom, and Storm seems to be more powerfull, at least compared to the first MUA.

Looks decent but I would of prefered a thing like were they are running towards each other with each faction on opposite sides or something like one of the civil war comic book covers.

Like the X-Men animated series opening where the Xmen runs on one side and the Brotherhood on the other side?

It's really difficult to say, because none of this women are involved in the civil war, Rogue can't fly anymore, Jean is dead (at least not for too long in Uncanny x-men ^_^), Elektra is a Skrull imposter (during the civil war) and I don't hear anything about Psylocke, If I remember, the guy in the video mentioned that it would be included characters that are related to the storyline, but at this point I don't know :D
Moonstone would be awesome, I love her! she's fantastic in the Ms. Marvel comic I also think Hawkeye would be cool too :)

The president of Vicarious Visions gave three categories they file characters under:

1) Those important to the plot (e.g. Songbird)
2) Those they can't live without (e.g. Hulk)
3) Those that are big fan favourites

I personally don't think any of the fan favourites have been announced yet. They said they listen to the fans and have done surveys. One of them was a poll on the main site and Emma Frost got the most votes.

I think the last characters will consist of:

1) Two more X-Men
2) One more Thunderbolt
3) Two others who are iconic or important

I think we'll get:

1) Cyclops and Emma Frost - both the current leaders of the X-Men. They both also add something different. No other characters in the game have optic blasts, telepathy or a diamond form. They are both very important.
2) Moonstone or Bullseye - Bullseye is more popular (apparently) but Moonstone is a female member and rounds the team out well. She could also replace Ms Marvel.
3) Hawkeye and Punisher - both are popular and can add something different.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Venom on June 05, 2009, 01:36am
Agree with Dihan sounds like a very possible list of remaining characters , so far most characters revealed kinda fit into two categories but thats just what I think. Hawkeye and Punisher were big characters left out of the first one so they should be in this time round.
Since DLC is confirmed does anyone else reckon there will be a few characters and the rest alternate costumes ?

Post by: Dihan on June 05, 2009, 02:54am
I don't know. They keep on saying "24 characters out of the box". Some people have interpreted that as without unlockables, others like myself are saying that's with unlockables as Deadpool, Venom and Green Goblin have to be unlocked.

I counted some of those under ones that were either part of the plot (Venom and Deadpool) or ones they can't live without (Hulk and Iron Fist). Despite liking a lot of the characters on the roster, some are quite forgettable if you're so used to seeing them in a modded MUA1.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on June 05, 2009, 08:32am
Well, not everyone fits in only one of those three categories, in fact most fit in to at least two categories.

And it's not really fair for us to judge from MUA1 mods.  We have to look at it like we're just your average person who likes Marvel characters, but isn't obsessed like us.  Because that's where the bulk of their paycheck is going to come from.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on June 05, 2009, 08:45am
I know they fit more than one category, I was just fitting them into where I personally believe they primarily fit. To be honest, I had also completely forgotten about Iron Fist - I had an exam on my mind. I probably should have said "not many fan favourites". The really big fan favourites will probably be revealed towards the end. You can't really say Songbird is really a fan favourite - she may be a fan favourite for fans of the Thunderbolts but she's not nearly well known enough for her to be a big fan favourite. I also can't believe Juggernaut is in. I really hope Juggernaut doesn't take up an X-Men slot.

3) Hawkeye and Punisher - both are popular and can add something different.

I like Dihan believe that we will have two more X-Men. Cyclops most likely,plus Jean Grey because she is a fan fav, is one of the most wanted characters for MUAII, and offers psychic and phoenix powers.

Then I think we will have one more Thunderbolt who will be Hawkeye most likely, because he also fits the Avenger status, and adds bows and arrows to the game.

Ms. Marvel will probably be the next, cause of her important role in Civil War, another Avengers and to have a character who could fill a cosmic powered hero role (cause of her Binary powers).

Dr. Strange, cause the game would need a magical character. If not him it could be Scarlet Witch cause she is also magical, another female, and another Avenger, plus she has close ties to the X-Men. But it is most likely Strange.

The last character would be either Bullseye or Psylocke. Juggernaut fits as the 5th X-Men, and the Avengers have 5 members, and so the Thunderbolts's 5th member could be Bullseye. However Psylocke is a fan fav, not to mention the clue by Kalina so there is a chance Psylocke could be the other character and a 6th X-Men.

Well, I say don't worry about Juggernaut, because he will be a bonus for preorder, no? I mean, he would be a bonus, who we don't count, right? If you ask me, Nightcrawler could be a nice choice as an X-Men. We need teleporters!

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Yeah Cable would be awesome! I would have to prefer Jeanie as the psychic. I really hope that this game has some magic character like Wanda or Strange. And if they do the magic characters should be more powerful. Strange was nice but the Witch was terrible in XMLII. I really like how she uses her powers in Wolverine and the X-Men. A powerset based of that would be wonderful if she makes it in the game.

Post by: marvelfan12345 on June 12, 2009, 12:51pm
I agree. Really only Black Widow, Cable, or Hercules have a chance. All three cause of their roles in the Civil War, Cable and maybe the Widow for popularity. Cable brings new gameplay but he has guns and stuff something which Deadpool has so Cable only brings something new unless you count Invisible Woman's telekinsis and if the game has a telepath (Jeanie, Psylocke, Emma, Professor, Rachel). If their is another psychic then Cable could be counted out easily.

Nope. When he says "out of the box" think of it like a box of doughnuts:

You buy a box of doughnuts. In that box there are 10 doughnuts. There are no more and there are no less. To get to the last few doughnuts you have to work your way through the box (unless you cheat and eat them all at once).

It's the same for this. There are 24 characters - some of which you get when you start and others that you get as you progress. There will probably also be cheats so you can start with all of them.

On the note of announced characters - Originally I pre-ordered MUA2 for Juggy, but when I realized that he was part of the 24 total characters I felt cheated, so I deleted my pre-order.  I'll end up buying it for PS2 since it's much cheaper, and we may just get lucky and have an older version of Alchemy that runs on the PS2 version.  N-Space isn't well known yet, and I'm guessing to keep up with both the DS and PS2 versions that they're going to just take the next-gen assets and dumb them down to PS2 and DS standards -- at least that's what I'm hoping.

Here's hoping Gambit isn't a console-exclusive, and that they're using the same engine as MUA1 PS2

I was exploring the MUAII site and they said that if you pre-order the game for xbox360 or ps3 you get vip access for MUA2 that comes July 1st and you will get the code to unlock Juggernaut when you recieve the game. I have heard that you get the code with the game, but others say that when the game is released the code is e-mailed to you. I'm pretty sure that he is exclusive like Colossus and Moon Knight for next-gen consoles. Both of those characters were added to the 23 limit roster and they didn't replace anyone. They were still called exclusive though so I'm quite sure Juggy will be a bonus 25th character.

Well another thing being assumed on the site is that they haven't made another one and are using Gambit's slot for Juggernaut at the moment. I'm happy though that there is a chance he will be confirmed at the upcoming comic-con. A lot of people think that two X-Men will be confirmed at the comic-con. Why they think that I don't know, but they do. People originally said Cyke and Jean, but because of Gambit they think he and Jean will be announced.

Ms. Marvel next to Venom
Jean Grey next to Storm
Wasp underneath the Hulk
Gambit and Cyclops next to Luke Cage
Dr. Strange next to Iron Man

Jean is a fan fav, unique character, one of the most popular X-Men, and very well known so she is probably in. She is also one of the most popular females in Marvel

Ms. Marvel had a big role in Civil War, and is one of the most popular females today in Marvel

Wasp is wanted by many, and only she could be in that spot due to her smallness

Gambit is pretty much confirmed and both he and Cyke are well wanted, and popular in Marvel so they are next to each other explaining the giant blob

Dr. Strange is in the huge blob next to Iron Man, because he is unique with magical powers and his cape is what is mostly taking up the room

I had been about to post that. One interesting thing is something I found on the forms. The 3 most wanted characters for MUAII are these.

1. Cyclops
2. Jean Grey
3. Gambit

Gambit has been confirmed so I'm guessing Cyke and Jean will be too. Also too mention that cover is probably a variant as there is another with Thing in Gambit's spot and Thor in Deadpools'.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on June 30, 2009, 11:59am
I'd actually say Emma Frost is the third most wanted.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on June 30, 2009, 12:48pm
Actually Emma was the fourth.

Post by: whiteking on June 30, 2009, 02:57pm
As I know, Cyclops has never been a "most wanted" as Jean or Emma. Gambit is a big surprise, at least for me, but well he's cool and has great powers so I think is a great addition.
On the other side, I think that the last female to be confirmed is Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers or Moonstone) since she is one of the biggest characters in Civil War.
Yes Jean has the most extensive topic in MUA II site and Emma won the poll in the main site, but there are no clues, or something that makes me think that both psychics are in.
Emma is my favorite and for me she has more chances to be included than Jean, because her importance and relevance in comis since 5 years ago, but at this point I don't know really, perhaps they are preparing a big surprise at the end, or both girls will be included as a DLC.  :confused:

Damn! I'm still think that there are a lot of useless characters included in this game.  :mad:

I know, I'm really happy with him too, in fact he's one of the few characters that makes me want to buy this game, the other ones are Songbird, Invisible Woman, Deadpool and Spider Man.
But I'm still want Emma in! :D

Post by: marvelfan12345 on June 30, 2009, 03:27pm
Well I think that the polls are for DLC as I really doubt Angel would make it in the initial roster. Plus the makers of the game most likely already started working on the characters before the polls. Jean has a big chance as she is very unique, greatly wanted, is one of the most popular women in Marvel. She may not have been in the comics for a while but she is defintally coming back and she is quite important in the X-movies. Plus she has become one of the main cast of Wolverine and the X-Men (second season) so I think this forshadows Jean's return in the comics. I do hope Emma makes it too and I'm guessing Emma, Rogue, She-Hulk, and Angel will be DLC as all four have won the polls.

Noooo! Long live the flaming pigeon lol.

Im happy with the characters so far, the only character that i will be dissapointed if they dont make it in is Ms Marvel.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on June 30, 2009, 03:32pm
Yes long live the flaming pigeon indeed (assuming we are talking about Jean).

I like all the characters and if there was a pc version I only would mod out Juggernaut, too bad he wouldn't be in it. I really just want Dr. Strange, Jean, Ms. Marvel, Cyke, Shulkie, Wanda, Wasp, Psylocke, and Hawkeye. Long list I know but in reality its not. Half of them will most likely make it and the other half hopefully shall be DLC.

Also on the White King's comment I was suprised that Cyke was number 1 most wanted. He has quite a large hate thread on the forums for MUAII.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of Summers either.  Cyclops isn't a bad character per say, I just don't see the big deal.  Same way with Jean.  They're both really cool, but I just can't get into them.  Especially since Emma became the "new Jean" if you will.

I'm gonna end up getting it for PS2 hoping the models will work in MUA1, so I can't hope for DLC characters that being said I'd just like to have Hawkeye and a non-X-Men female.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: nodoubt_jr on June 30, 2009, 07:39pm
I probably wont be getting it either way, i dont have any gaming console to play it with and even if theres a pc version i doubt my laptop could handle it (lol it can barely handle MUA1 and thats with 3danalyze's help).  So im just hoping like Teancum that the ps2 modesl work in MUA1.

I like him, but  marvelfan12345 post that he's a most wanted, and as I remember the most wanted in MUA II site were Jean, Emma and Psylocke.
If he's included, it would be ok, since I think that he's more useful than for example Luke Cage, Wht's the point of having 3 big tanks as he, the thing and hulk at the same time??? I honestly think is a waste of space in the final roster. Maybe if 2 of them were DLC...

Especially since Emma became the "new Jean" if you will.

Emma the new Jean? I assume you are joking, both are diferent characters, perhaps they have the same power (telepathy) but they never been the same.
Jean is playfull and lovely, Emma is more sultry and cold. Fire and Ice you know? ;)

I'm gonna end up getting it for PS2 hoping the models will work in MUA1, so I can't hope for DLC characters that being said I'd just like to have Hawkeye and a non-X-Men female.

That would be cool, hope you are right :)

I agree. The heroes in the game should be those in comics, that are basicly the same from the last games. But Wiccan (from Young Avengers) could be one of the playables. He's important in some way...
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Yay! Three important characters that conveniently don't include any mutants as all the important ones have been excluded because they've been in other games.

Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 01, 2009, 07:07am
Those three are awesome characters but Punisher is playable in his own games, Black Cat in Spider-Man Friend or Foe, and Vision in that old Avengers game.

True true. All three would be awesome as playable. Although Black Cat and Vision will probably be DLC.

I'd also love it if you could be them individually too.  I hated that I had to buy Dr Doom, Sabretooth, Magneto, Cyclops, Nightcrawler and Hulk in order to get Hawkeye and Venom.  Not that those characters are dumb or anything, it's just that it was wasted money to me.

I probably won't get this game - I have a PS2 but I'll get bored with it since I won't be able to get at the source code to modify it like I can with the PC.

Still, I am impressed with all the work that they've put into it... and sad that it won't be for PC but thats an old horse.

For my money, if I wanted a character who hasn't often been a playable character, I'd have to choose Mystique - she's a pretty awesome char to play (power wise) but now that the herostat is mostly filled out *shrug* it doesn't matter.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on July 01, 2009, 02:56pm
Well, if the PS2 version uses Alchemy 3.5 or older we can probably port a lot of the game over to MUA1.  If it uses Alchemy 3.2 then we can use the animations/models for XML2 or MUAXbox
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 01, 2009, 03:09pm

Kindof a crappy view on things, don't you think?  I have yet to play a game that didn't feel complete before DLC.  DLC does what it should -- gives consumers replayability while boosting sales for those who don't yet own the game.

Newest clue.

1st off - We’ll be revealing new characters at SDCC.  Good guesses so far but don’t assume you’ve clinched it. 
First clue is as follows:  This character’s powers are heavily involved with their outerwear.


So I'm guessing Cyke, Havok, Guardian, Doctor Strange, Captain Britain, Penance, or even Doom.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: nodoubt_jr on July 08, 2009, 02:21pm
So its someone that gets their powers from what they wear? Like Iron Man's armor? I have no guesses so far.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 08, 2009, 02:25pm
Their powers have something to do with their costume. Some also say Hawkeye, Wasp, Jean Grey, and Henry Pym.

lol do people on those forum think every clue leads to Jean? this clue really has nothing to do with her.

Agree, This is obsessive, why every single clue leads to Jean??, one thing is hoping that maybe she's in, and another thing is believe that every news and clues mean that she is the next to be confirmed. Sorry but that's insane.

The clue is:

First clue is as follows:  This character’s powers are heavily involved with their outerwear.

In wich way her powers are heavily involved with whatever she's wearing???
Doesn't matter if she's green, dark or white phoenix, or if she's marvel girl or simply Jean Grey. Her powers are the same, she still is a telepath with telekinetic abilities and the control of the Phoenix force.

So its someone that gets their powers from what they wear? Like Iron Man's armor? I have no guesses so far.


Iron man. That's a really good example of the clue. His powers are involved with his armor, without that he's just Tony Stark. But he's already in, so he doesn't count.

Penance
Iceman
Ms Marvel

I hope you are right (yes because Jean is in) but also because I like Iceman, and Ms. Marvel. If this is true I will get ps2 just so I can play as Cyclops and Psylocke. Why Blade is in I don't know as Elektra would make more sense than him, but oh well.

Although I would like tho say that you are right ;) Her case is the same as Jean, no matter what she's wearing, she always is a powerfull telepath with a shiny diamond form.
See the Dark Xmen as example, she's wearing black now and still has the same powers.

That doesn't have anything to do with her powers though. I've found out why people think the clue applies to Jean. It is actually kind of stupid but it could apply to her, but I doubt the clue is about her.

"I think Jean Grey. She has the Phoenix emblem on her outfit and her outfit changes with her personality."

Another example

"Everytime Jean uses the Phoenix she changes into the Phoenix costume (once or twice this hasn't happened."

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 09, 2009, 07:01pm
Yeah the clues go together. Like I said above I say either, Henry Pym, Wasp, Jean Grey, or Hawkeye.

Pym has gone by multiple code-names and has had various powers with his various costumes.

Wasp uses Wasp-like powers in most of her costumes. She has also been Giant-Girl (including Marvel Adventures) with giant-powers.

Hawkeye uses arrows with a bow in this identity. As Ronin he uses swords and other ninja weapons. As Goliath he can grown. You don't see him growing in his Ronin costume.

Jean Grey usually uses Phoenix powers in her Phoenix costumes and psychic powers in her Marvel Girl cosutmes. You don't usually see her in her X training costume with Phoenix powers.

Cyclops was Eric the Red for a bit.

I suspect the two clues go together as they have specified in the past whether there are two reveals or not. It's most likely to be Penance:

1) A fourth Thunderbolt
2) Very important Civil War character
3) Used to be Speedball
4) His power is directly linked to his costume

Well, that's what I was talking about, REAL proves, no especulation, no fan's ideas, proves people, proves, lol.
So it appears all was right Jeannie is in, and looking at what she's wearing, she will have "Phoenix" powers...
We will have to wait untill they made this "official" if she's in the game or if she will be a DLC.

Well marvelfan12345, you can be really happy with this right? :)

I know because if she was dlc or an exclusive they wouldn't put her on the back so everyone will be lucky enough to play as her. Only want Wanda, Cyke, Psylocke, Ms Marvel, and heck even Emma.  I fear that they won't put anymore X-Men.

I'm glad that you are so happy with this news, because I know how much you want her in the game, and I personally thought that she's a great addition to the team, and far usefull than manny others that are included here... Also I think that she's a main character for the same reasons than you.

I really hope that at least one more x men will be revealed (Scott and Emma are my favorite to be included, but also I have hopes for dazzler) and one more thunderbolt (Moonstone!!!)

With this my wishes to get the game are now in 70/75% ^_^

to be honest, i would love to see Cyke as the last X-Men, even thou im not the best fan for him. For me i think there are like 4 main X-Men, Wolverine, Jean, Cyke and Storm.I dont know why, but i think there the main ones?? o.O

To be fair non of these games (xml1, xml2, mua1) follow direct comic storylines, they are in their own little world. so they can definetly change the storyline how they want to so that it fits in this new world.

Im happy with Jean, i love her as a character and i loved her in XML2.

I don't think Jean being in is a giant break in the story. Thor yeah because of Clone Thor but not Jean or DD or Hulk or Gambit. Plus the developers of the game said that the game is a What If? of the storyline and Jean being in is one of the very What Ifs?

A list made  by the Greatest_Username which I think is unbiased and very true.

Semi-Confirmed

Jean Grey
Gambit

Very Likely

Hawkeye
Ms Marvel
Vision

Likely

Wasp
Punisher
Penance
Cyclops

Fair Chance

Sentry
Hank Pym
Black Cat

Has a Chance, but Probably Not

Psylocke
Spider-Woman
Dr Strange
Scarlet Witch
Radioactive-Man
Emma Frost

I myself would add Shulkie to the has a chance, but probably not list but I decided to post the list that the Greatest_Username made. This is for initail roster not DLC.

He would. Especially after you look at the Vision mod for MUA and XMLII. I would prefer another female so we can have 6 guessing Ms. Marvel is in.

If Emma doesn't make it into the game they should make her Dlc.

Please no.  There are so many other characters that would make for a better variety to the game.  We'll have one psychic, and a diamond form just isn't enough to make me want another.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 15, 2009, 06:43pm
Emma could be ok. I still prefer Psylocke but many people want Emma and as DLC is usually characters that people wanted that didn't make it in the game I would say yes to her.

And now Penance by a MUAII promo sign. I'm betting all three will be revealed at the SDCC. And sorry Venom but that is Gambit. That pic is my new wallpape lol. Honestly only cuz of Jean.

She looks pretty well, although the classic pink efects are missing, it appears that she's mainly a telekietic and there's no Phoenix powers. Her "Fusions" are cool, I think she could be the character that I was waiting for to buy this game, I only expect one more psychic (the blonde one, lol :P) and another female thunderbolt.

I wonder who will they be (Gambit and Jean is practically revealed). I hope someone like Ronin (or Hawkeye) or Cable will be the last character to be revealed. (I just hope, that it won't be Nick Fury or Emma Frost)
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on July 23, 2009, 11:32am
I'm with you Hawkeye (with a Ronin alternate costume) and Cable would make two excellent additions.  Cable might not make it because we have a gun character (Deadpool) and a psychic (Jean), but he'd still be awesome.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

As three characters from the supposed leaked roster have been confirmed, then it may be Iceman, Ms Marvel and Nick Fury.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 23, 2009, 11:42am
I hope not. I want Ms. Marvel, Cyclops, and Spider-Woman but the latter two may not make it. Hawkeye is cool but I wouldn't want him with a Ronin skin as there is no point with him as Ronin holding a bow with only arrow attacks. Cable would be ok but I prefer Cyke as the X-Man and he seems to be more of an NPC. I want two more females as Songbird is on the Pro side and Ms. Marvel may be on that side too if she is in so we wouldn't be able to make a full female team then on the Anti side unless there is another female. And Nick Fury has been confirmed as only an NPC.

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 23, 2009, 02:09pm
Some info about Jean.

Quote
Jean’s popularity has definitely been something we’ve taken into account, though - she’s probably one of the characters we’ve been asked about the most, and the one people have been most worried about not seeing in the game. Ironically, I don’t think there was ever a chance she wouldn’t be in, I believe she was one of the first characters we intended to include.


That is great to hear that we never had to worry as Jean was gonna be in from the beginning.

Some talk about Jean (really great news) and Gambit.

I’ll post my personal gameplay summaries of Jean Grey and Gambit before the end of the day… Right now still working the ‘day job’ of bug hunting as well as providing coverage. 

EDIT: After re-reading the dev blogs, the designers actually talk quite a lot about how these characters play. I don’t want to step on their toes, so I’m going keep this pretty short: Basically, Jean’s great fun, especially if you’re a strategic player. When you deploy her powers correctly, she can completely turn a battle around and help a team to decimate the opposition. She’s also got a particular knack for breaking lots of objects at once, which is great for causing strategic explosions and ferreting out collectibles. The one possible downside I can see: due to her popularity in the comics, a lot of people are going to want to slot in Jean immediately and just start unleashing her powers on anything that moves. On Normal difficulty or anything above it, they’ll be in for a rough ride: yeah, they’ll make a really cool mess and take out a number of foes in fun ways, but they’ll probably expose Jean to too much enemy fire and get her health chewed down. But if you have the patience to hang back for a few seconds and watch the situation (or the skills to jump in while navigating through the ebb and flow of enemies), Jean is simply a monster on the battlefield. An advanced player will be able to figure this out pretty fast, for the average player (or someone just new to the game) it may take a few battles before they start really grasp what Jean can do.

Aaaand we’re on to Gambit! It’s probably not a surprise that he’s a big favorite around the office.  In terms of gameplay, Gambit’s obviously good at ranged combat, but he’s best when you mix up his ranged and melee. All his moves are really “flashy” and just plain cool… If you like movies with lots of explosions, he’s your guy. Actually, both of these new characters are big on the “visual factor,” as in they’re just really fun to watch. Gambit’s also great for beginning players, as he’s got a range of powers that are really different but not individually complicated. That makes him really useful when you’re learning the ropes of switching between powers and melee, or just generally experimenting with different tactics.

Hey how many times can a VIP code be used. Like if someone gave his friend one and then he put the code in and the friend put the same code in. With both be able to get VIP with the same code?

By the way Gambit and Jean have got their character bios up. In Jean's they mention that she has the power of telepathy which she can use to fire mental blasts so I'm guessing her projectile is really a mental blast. It's weird how her X3 costume is in there. I love how Rogue's pic is in Gambit's.

I think only once, if they gave out the 1 code everyone could use it and then there would be no point to VIP.

Saw a video of Storm. Her powers look like she has her lightning strike, a whirlwind, a wind popup attack, and a blizard. Weird how that fills up the four powers but it doesn't include her wind knockback attack unless blizard is a boost. Songbird has a sort of popup attack, some exploding projectile, sound darts, and some scream with pink effects. Cap looks like he has the four powers from the first game minus his radial attack.

I just hope that leaked roster is wrong in Nick Furys part, he wasnt a character that people really liked and when he is already a NPC in the game it wouldnt make much sense like last time with him and Doom.
Hawkeye and Punisher seemed like two characters they shouldve put it this time but I guess they didnt think so.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

So you want another psychic instead of someone who has a power that is next to completely unrepresented anywhere else in the Marvel Universe? I'm sure people forget that Iceman is one of the most power mutants currently in existence and he was one of the original five.

Here's a task: find another major character who can create and control ice.

Besides, according to the leaked roster Psylocke is an exclusive for the PS2 and Wii versions.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Philip on July 25, 2009, 05:48am
The list is correct, and I HATE simply HATE Nick...he was lame in the first game and now we have to see him again!The only thing that conforts me is that the guy who gave the list said that Nick was some sort of special deal, so I hope that there is one more super duper secret character and that is why the "guy" who made the leak didnt know...

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 25, 2009, 07:18am
Well I hope you are right. Iceman isn't bad but I stil prefer another X-Men. I felt Storm or Iron Man can take his ice powers. I just hope Nick Fury if he must be in is another exclusive. A waste of an exclusive but hopefully then we can get Spider-Woman, Dr. Strange, or maybe even Psylocke.

Post by: BLaw on July 25, 2009, 08:30am
I totally agree with Dihan.. Iceman is a unique character. He deserves the spot on the roster more than a psychic / telekeblatic personage. But I do prefer Psylocke over Jean.

1. Psylocke is more unique
2. Jean has TK+Fire - Psylocke + Human Torch please.

I don't get the whole what if part of this game. First of all, we got "teased" with the ending movies of MUA1... Galactus clearly wants revenge. Anyone would save Nightcrawler... (I don't count Ultimate Jean fans). With Nightcrawler saved, Jean's Phoenix arises, so what? Like she is unstoppable.. She could serve as a good boss. With Jean saved, X-Men disband. Well yippee.. X-Men have disbanded more than the Blob changes underwear.

But that's just a little dog's opinion. I'm not hating Jean though.. I hate the Phoenix. I don't love Iceman.. I'm straight... But I like Iceman and his uniqueness.. And I like Psylocke because of her powers. And she also possesses good martial arts skills. That's why I find Jean so boring in the games. (But I do not dislike her!).
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 25, 2009, 08:55am
I want Psylocke in so much too but I fear she won't be in. Also you forget Jean has telepathy as her beam is a psychic beam in the game. That is why it is mentioned in her bio.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: nodoubt_jr on July 25, 2009, 12:51pm
Psylocke is just as messed up as Jean in my opinion.  How many changes has she been through? British psychic, Asian ninja with psychic blade, kwannon or betsy?, shadow teleporting crimson warrior, non telepathic telekinetic, dead, resurrected immune to possession telekinetic that can shatter mountains with her power, evil British psychic, and finally telepath/telekinetic Asian. I hope she does make it into the game and they stick with the classic Asian ninja with psychic blade.  She is still one of my favorite characters, but damn she is complicated.

Nick Fury had some pretty good unique moves in MUA, I don’t think his attacks sucked at all.  If he is in I’m sure they can make him better and complete.  Iceman is cool, but I rather another X-Man get that spot than a character we have already played with.

Post by: ThePhoenix on July 26, 2009, 06:23am
I think the last character might be Cable... Since in this (http://comic-con.gamespot.com/video/6213946/) video in 00:02 Cable says what you have to do etc.
So he might be unlocked after completing the game or at one point. That's my opinion

I wonder if there will be another collect-to-unlock character, like in the first MUA. I think there won't be more official X-Men character, because there are four, so we can use the "X-Men team bonus".

I would have liked them sticking with Xtremes too, but XML1/2 style, none of the team xtreme stuff. oh well it makes sense to have these fusion attacks be similar, saves them time in trying to come up with different fusions for every two characters.

The game comes out in September 15, and they've been revealing one character each month, so I'm guessing they'll reveal it/them in the second half of August. One of those characters is confirmed to be Ms. Marvel, another one is probably Iceman, and it seems there will be another one (the secret one) who won't get to be in the characters section from the official site, but I'm not sure about that.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 28, 2009, 03:30pm
I doubt Iceman's inclusion. I still hope another female but I bet the secret character is Punisher as he is very hyped aout and on the character selection screen from the video one guy looks like he is holding a rifle.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Gevth on July 28, 2009, 03:39pm
Didn't associate the fact that there's only 2 spots left in the character selection scree. Then again, there's no shadow for Juggernaut. I'm pretty certain the one next to Iron Man is for Ms. Marvel.

Where can you see a rifle?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 28, 2009, 04:01pm
Same here and I said it looks like the other guy is holding something which seems to be a rifle. Thus I guess Punisher. Storm and the blurred spot next to her is gone so I think it will be Spider-Woman or Dr. Strange next to Storm.

Post by: BLaw on July 29, 2009, 07:20am
I don't. Iceman is too important to be left out. Who else is going to put out fires and stuff. Storm only? Nah.

Till now, all Marvel RPG's like XML and MUA had chars of the same type of abilities which could be used to perform an action so the player could procede in a level, otherwise complete the game for 100%. With abilities, I mean flight, teleportation, putting fires out, making bridges... That kind of stuff. Iceman can fulfill 2 of those (actually three, if you count the Ice Slide as flight). The only other person who can put fires out is Storm.

I don't know if they have thought of this though. But it would make sence. Not only because of this, but Iceman is just so popular.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Gevth on July 29, 2009, 09:27am
I think we all could live without the putting-out-fires feature, but I agree that Iceman's unique powers (in the Marvel Universe) are reason enough to have him in the game. I disagree on its popularity, there are a lot of characters more popular than him that won't make it in the game, but I agree that waffles are delicious.

I don't see him as a fan fav. Storm already has hail powers, and I think Iron Man has a freeze beam and I doubt any other X-Men are playable especially as with Juggs and Deadpool being counted as an X-Man. With Ms. Marvel leaked, Punisher most likely being in I doubt he will be in especially as it would have made more sense for him to be one of the first to be revealed. Many believe Nova will be playable. I hope not but he has a good chance although I'm pretty sure VV won't leave 5 females. They know how much females are wanted so they probably will include 6 which means one more. So I'm guessing Spider-Woman, Wasp, Elektra, or Scarlet Witch. Most likely Spider-Woman but who knows.

Okay and Iceman is the 23rd character which leaves one spot for the unrevealed character right? I'm kind of upset with the roster so far, 7 (maybe 8 depending on the 24th character) new characters. I think they should have added onto the original roster instead of replacing characters. I do hope the 8th character is a female since I feel MUA2 is lacking girl power imo.

Actually Iceman isn't in. He was simply mentioned by some creator of the game so I don't think that leaks him in like Ms. Marvel. So really two spots. I also think the game needs more girl power.

Post by: Angel on July 30, 2009, 03:54pm
I thought the guys who worked on the game commented on how he and Human Torch have a really nice fusion. I think that kind of confirms. He could maybe be one of those exclusive system characters.

Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 30, 2009, 04:06pm
That is weird as while everyone is hyped from Ms. Marvel's fusion nobody has said anything about Iceman's fusion on the MUAII site. I think that just got made up along the way. I like who Juggs is ane exclusive cause he isn't as popular like Wolverine, Cap, Hulk, Jean, Iron Man so I think other characters like Blade, Moon Knight, and Ghost Rider should be exclusives cause nobody really cares much about them so while they shall be enjoyed not many people will cry that they can't play as them.

Yeah but that is only one person. The majority of marvel fans won't really care about him. Most people probably won't even know who he is unless they are hardcore comic fans cause he may have his own book but isn't very popular like Hulk, DD, Spider-Man etc., or if they played MUAI for WII, 360, or PS3. I myself read X-Men, Fantastic Four, and New Avengers.

To create a Thunderbolts team and she was popular in that. Luke Cage is very popular nowadays which is a main reason why he is in. And DD is actually very popular. There is a reason he had a movie, and is often shown on marvel merchandise.

the movie was sh*t, but it doesnt take away from the fact that he is a classic and popular character.

Im kind of done worrying about who is going to make it into the roster as they have already said DLC is a definete yes, so if they dont make it straight away they may be dlc. But i do love reading about which characters you guys want :)

I've seen loads of people complaining on the official forums that Luke Cage is playable and that Daredevil is playable. You know who else have had movies? Ghost Rider (one of the ones you said wasn't popular) and Howard the Duck.

Agree, I'm one of those people. I don't see them as "popular", I think that both were included just because the plot of the game (DD and Cage are important to the Civil war), like the Cap, and Ironman. With the difference that the Cap and Ironman are really popular.
Both were (for me) totally useless and probably the most dissapointing characters in the first MUA (especially Cage). I don't now about you, but DD and Cage (along Nick Fury) were the first characters that I replaced with mods.
I can think in a lot of characters who could take their places in the new game, like Emma Frost, Moonstone, Hawkeye and Psylocke, who are more popular and has a strong fan base supporting them in the offcial forums.
Iceman is not my favorite, but I can understand why he's one of the final characters: he REALLY has unique powers and has a strong fan base to be considered. And Ms Marvel is really popular and has cool powers.
I think that both are a "pro" to the game. So I won't complain about it.

And for the movies, also Doctor Strange has his own movie.

Daredevil will always be included in these games. He's in the border of Marvel's A and B list, that is, he's the last A lister or the first B one. And he's a Stan Lee creation. Frank Miller's run on the book is still considered one of the best writing in comics.

Luke Cage's is really being pushed by Marvel. There's an interview for the first MUA where they say that Marvel insisted on having him in the game (which I'm guessing explains why he's got Powerman icons, I believe they weren't aware of his newest look).
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: ThePhoenix on July 31, 2009, 06:35am
Guh, Daredevil?! He wasn't awful in MUA1, but there would be so many other characters I'd like to see. I even liked DD's comic book mission, it was so different and character-wise. (At least with the fact that there was all dark in it)
 
Still I'd rather see someone like Iceman or Nightcrawler instead of Daredevil.

First of all: count me in for Moon Knight, because I like him too. Luke is just cool. Many Marvel character has it's own movie, which s*cks. And I would rather see Iceman or Nightcrawler playable instead of Daredevil too.

Moon Knight should be DLC, simply for the fact that I would pay extra money for him.  Give me a character I like so-so rather than give me so-so characters as DLC, otherwise you don't get my DLC money.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on July 31, 2009, 08:56am
Well Cage has been a leading guy of Marvel nowadays like Ms. Marvel. Both were not that popular back in the 70s. I think Ghost Rider was popular in the 70s-90s but his popularity downed in the 2000s. I find no needs for Moon Knight or Nightcrawler cause of Gambit and Deadpool. Others may differ with that but that is my opinion. I love the roster right now cause you need Cap, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Spidey, Wolverine, FF, Storm, and DD cause they always have been a big part of marvel. Cage cause he is a leading guy of Marvel nowadays and then Venom and Goblin cause they are part of the Thunderbolts and already very popular and well-liked villains so they made sense. Songbird cause we need the female Thunderbolt, the good Thunderbolt, and she is very unique and so many people have already really wanted to play as her on the MUAII forums. Iron Fist cause he is a little more popular than when MUAI came out and VV guessed that Cage would be liked more if his old partner was back. Deadpool cause he is so popular with a huge fanbase plus you get a teleporter, a gun character, plus with swords. Gambit is very popular and has another huge fanbase and his role in Wolverne Origins the Movie really helped him. Then Jean is one of the heart and soul of the X-Men, has a huge fanbase, very unique with psychic and fiery powers and she was said to be the most asked for and wanted character and she was said to be ironically a character who would have been in the game from the beginning no matter what. Ms. Marvel is very popular right now and is one of Marvel's leading ladies while Penance had a huge role in Civil War and completes the Thunderbolts. I love how Juggs is an exclusive cause he is kind of obscure so many people won't care he is an exclusive for a console they don't have. Many people said he should have been replaced by Psylocke but I disagree as she is very wanted and that wouldn't be good for her to be an exclusive. I hope other exclusives include Moon Knight, Blade, Ghost Rider, etc.

Post by: ThePhoenix on July 31, 2009, 09:37am
I think Deadpool and Nightcrawler are not the same. Oh no they aren't. Deadpool is more of a shooter and Nightcrawler works with swords. I know that Deadpool has swords too though. AND Deadpool is a merc with a mouth, while Nightcrawler is calm, religious german.

Also the same with Moon Knight and Gambit, Gambit has all those card throw things. And Moon knight, well I'm not very familiar with that character but regarding from him in MUA he works more with staff.

Dunno if anyone follows Twitter, but Vicarious Visions' creative director has an account set up where he answers questions and whatnot.

For instance:

From Twitter

@Hurricane42   Re: Jean Grey. You can essentially "resurrect" her by collecting M'Kraan crystal fragments in MUA2.

@spiderdude85   Spider-Man has many moves, but he won't stick to walls. That's one concession we had to make to support 24 heroes.

@Johnaazzopardi   Juggernaut will be available at launch if you pre-order through Gamestop. Other DLC will appear later.

@tevyrich   Boosts are won during the game; they boost various hero stats. They serve a similar role to equipment in the previous game.

@shadowbeam_   VV did not develop the Wii version this time around. From what I've seen of the Wii, it is a bit different.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on August 01, 2009, 05:28am
Another gem from Twitter:

Quote
@chosenone123   24 is the number of characters on disc, including unlockables. DLC, naturally, will increase that number.

@Johnaazzopardi   The 24 "out of the box" characters do not include Juggernaut or DLC. There will be unlockables though.

We know Juggy is available via a DLC code when you buy the game, so it's 100% fact he doesn't count towards the 24.

And some others:

Quote
@cantballmeup   There will be 4 difficulty levels: Casual, Heroic, Super Heroic, and Legendary. Legendary is unlocked by defeating H or SH.

@silviu4mc    We don't have a PC version planned.

As I have said before the Official website contains all the playable characters. So if Iceman isn't there we won't be playing as Iceman is it hard to find out? And I don't think that Phillip in the "Leaked Roster" topic accutely knows I think his lying to us.

Post by: Dihan on August 03, 2009, 01:54am
Leaks happen all the time. Like the playables in Super Smash Bros Brawl were leaked and loads of people denounced it because it had Toon Link, Wolf and ROB on it. The official site didn't have them but they were eventually revealed.

The leaked list for MUA2 included Jean, Gambit and Penance who were later revealed. The official website still has two unrevealed character boxes (and one that'll never be revealed) so stop being a complete idiot by saying who's currently revealed is all that we're getting. You may as well have said that as Jean wasn't on there at the beginning she won't be playable - yet 'lo and behold she is!
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

What if, what if he know this stuff from inside the project? What if they had Iceman planned but scrapped him for some-one else, some-one alot more renowed then Iceman? Like Magneto, or Polaris? Questions is all that we can say, isn't it? We don't know until we play it our selves do we?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Philip on August 03, 2009, 02:14am
Unknown, I cant be lying since it is not my list :P That is why I have put all the info we had for those characters, so people can judge by themselves.

Leaks happen, and some time intentionally, to increase the hype of the game.

What I noticed is that the reveals happened the same way they were on the list! (first Gambit, the Jean after that Penance) So If Iceman is revealed next then I should go cry in a corner cause we lost a slot to Nick :(

And the list leaked late June/early July, it was too late to make roster changes!Unless they had gameplay problems e.g Angel in XML1
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Unknown on August 03, 2009, 02:20am
Who knows and you're probably not lying but I just don't think that Iceman will be in the game cause he was extremely bad in MUA and the only time I used him was for the achievements unlocking all costumes and doing his simulator for silvers. Unless he'll be like Silvers like in the last game. Or they just seem to can't create him better, but since his been in XML1, XML2 and MUA and alot of the fans love him they'll put him in. All they need to do is make him better, alot!
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Philip on August 03, 2009, 02:29am
He wasnt that Bad in MUA1, but he wasnt THAT good as he was in XML2.If he is in, he is for his unique powers! I dont think the developers would leave him out, considering the many unique fusions he can make...
Anyway, it is August already and we ll have our 2 reveals in these 4 weeks, so we ll wait and see...

Where did you hear that? I heard the opposite.  That most characters won't have actual alternate identities -- but they never said there flat-out won't be any.

By alternate we mean some other person who has similar powers. Alternate in that vidfeo means any costume. We were saying how similar characters won't be an alternate skin for another character. Like in MUA Spider-Woman has many alternate costumes. However one of those alternate costumes is an alternate character who is Julia Carpenter.

The clue for VIP on who the next character reveal is this.

"This character was born without powers".

So defintally Ms. Marvel.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Georged448 on August 06, 2009, 03:28am
Could it possibly be Iceman? (if he is going to be playable) because Mutants arent technically born with powers. They normally manifest around puberty dont they? I mean it probably is Ms Marvel just sorta throwing this out there XD
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on August 06, 2009, 03:39am
It could be nearly any character in the Marvel Universe. Except Multiple-Man, possibly those who don't have powers anyway, or those that aren't human origin.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Georged448 on August 06, 2009, 03:47am

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: haydnc95 on August 06, 2009, 06:10am
Its Ms Marvel... got this from Wiki...

The non-powered Carol Danvers debuted as a member of the US Air Force in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 (1968) and as Ms. Marvel — a fusion of alien Kree and human genes — in Ms. Marvel #1 (1977).

But its cant be Iceman, becos technically he is born with this powers, they just havnt been Unlocked yet.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Gevth on August 06, 2009, 07:16am
In every other forum, there are big discussions about whether mutants are born with or without powers, as some of them develop powers when they're older.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on August 06, 2009, 07:25am
Mutants are all born with the X-Gene so they have latent powers (in most cases). Whether having powers that are latent qualifies them for being born with powers or not remains to be seen.

I'd personally say it doesn't.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on August 06, 2009, 07:47am
I don't see how it could be a mutant, even barring when they have their powers.  They wouldn't waste another slot when they can round it out with so many non-mutants.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 06, 2009, 08:20am
I know we have Jean, Storm, Wolverine, Gambit, Juggs, and Deadpool. I don't expect any more mutants till DLC.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Gevth on August 06, 2009, 08:23am
Juggernaut and Deadpool aren't mutants, though.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 06, 2009, 08:25am
Oh yeah. Well isn't Deadpool. But Juggs is counted as an X-Man and they kinda confirmed that Deadpool is too.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on August 06, 2009, 08:29am
Juggernaut has spent more time as a villain than a member of the X-Men, to be honest. Deadpool is just a mercenary who has links to Cable. Deadpool was just an ordinary mercenary who entered the Weapon X program because he had cancer and figured he had nothing to lose.

Accutely he made a deal with Weapon X that they will cure his incurible cancer. After the thing he has to take syrines that heal heal his scarred face, which is why he wears a mask.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 06, 2009, 01:59pm
Well we know that Juggernaut will most likely be DLC for those who didn't pre-order.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Unknown on August 06, 2009, 02:00pm
Probably, and they'll but some-one from the last game e.g: Luke Cage, Magneto, Docter Doom (DLC) and Nightcrawler.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 06, 2009, 02:06pm
Assuming the last two are Spider-Woman and PUnisher.

Marvel Women - Emma Frost, Elektra, Black Cat, Wasp

X-Men - Cyclops, Psylocke, Angel, Rogue

Avengers - Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Dr. Strange, Quicksilver

Fantastic Four Allies - She-Hulk, Silver Surfer, Black Panther, Namor

Thunderbolts - Moonstone, Bullseye, Baron Zemo, Radioactive Man


Now before I am scolded for not putting official news Hulk and Thor will also have to be unlocked with artifacts like Jean.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Unknown on August 06, 2009, 03:30pm

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Have no idea. All I know is for Jean's artifact will be a shard of the M'Kraan Crystal.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Unknown on August 06, 2009, 03:36pm
Would there be 5 shards like in the last game: 5 dolls and you unlock the character, play the game again and collect five dolls you unlock the characters simulator disc?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 06, 2009, 03:37pm
Have no idea. Anyway new trailer.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1L3s9jf17A

It seems Jean's projectile is really her basic tk. She sucks them in and then slams them away from her. Awesome! So happy Storm has chain lightning again but now it looks way better and more realistic than in MUA.

So no new characters since last week. I hope they will reveal them shortly now (or what).
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 10, 2009, 11:28am
Ms. Marvel is close to be revealed. Anyway VV has started making DLC. So at least some DLC characters have been decided. Also they confirmed Kitty Pryde as to hard to make but if she is clamored enough for then they will make her DLC by attempting to make her phasing work in the game. Not sure how though. I hope she makes it in. She deserves too after three whole games.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 10, 2009, 11:31am
Well yeah, but that phasing power will be hard, if they would make her go through every wall.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 10, 2009, 11:31am
I think some walls won't let her go through like Nightcrawler can't teleport through everything.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 10, 2009, 11:34am
Yeah, but maybe they won't make her. I mean, she is not a big fun to play with and they will make other characters, who has more fans. Plus, she is dead, no?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 10, 2009, 11:38am
Yes, but many marvel characters have been dead. That doesn't really show much. And yes she is fun. I would play with her and I love her XMLII and MUA mods. And she has been pretty wanted. Most clamored characters are in. She has been in the list for top DLC Women.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 10, 2009, 11:40am
Really? Well, I don't know about these lists, so sorry. If you ask me, I would rather play with Polaris.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 10, 2009, 11:42am
I would love her too. I think Magneto needs a break. Polaris and Kitty are some of my fav X-Women. My top 10.

1. Jean Grey
2. Psylocke
3. Kitty Pryde
4. Rogue
5. Storm
6. Polaris
7. Marvel Girl
8. Dazzler
9. Emma Frost
10. Jubilee

However Magma, Mirage, Blink, and Husk are close behind.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 10, 2009, 11:45am
I like Psylocke, Rogue, Storm too (and as I said, Polaris too). I never really hated Jean, but I'm not a big fan of hers.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Unknown on August 10, 2009, 03:44pm
Jeans pretty cool.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Gevth on August 10, 2009, 05:40pm
A couple of small announcements: Juggernaut is not in the Wii nor PS2 versions. It's only downloadable for PS3 and Xbox360, and it's supposedly not in the disc (though I'm guessing it's like Colossus and Moon Knight in MUA1, that were in the disc for all versions, yet not playable in some of them).
Still only small tidbits about other versions: follows the same storyline, but both n-Space and Savage Entertainment had freedom to do whatever they felt like doing.


As for Shadowcat: They've said the hard thing to do is create levels around phasing, not actually coding it. Given that, here's how I'd do it: Instead of it being a boost, make it an attack.

If you use it facing an enemy, phase through him and attack him from behind. If used away from an enemy and a wall, it's 1-3 seconds of invulnerability. If used facing a wall, phase through the wall. In the early levels of the power, only a few walls can be phased through, and have her say something about her inability to cross through the unphasable walls, same way all characters say something when trying to walk through an invisible wall in MUA.

and there more. if your a VIP u can ge the 1st heads up on costumes and 360 screens :) you lucky VIPs

Post by: piutebob on August 12, 2009, 07:04pm
Maybe Namor? He lives in the ocean, so no need to wash his costume... Was he born with powers?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 12, 2009, 07:36pm
I please post costume news. Anyway I think Ms. Marvel as she uses her powers to change into her costume. I think the washing is a clue to Namor perhaps.

Well, its speculated hes a mutant anyway, dont think its ever been officially confirmed.

Actually I think Namor has had powers since birth. Namor has a chance but I think it is Ms. Marvel. They wouldn't make her the secret character. Wait I am suspicious of Iceman. His costume would be clean due to the ice.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Unknown on August 12, 2009, 08:55pm
Some-one who would have to wash their costume? They's: Iceman, Namor, wait are we talking about all the skins or just the first one?

Also while I'm posting and getting off topic does any-one have the original x-men theme song?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 13, 2009, 06:30am
Well, I think Namor or Iceman (I hope someone else).
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on August 13, 2009, 06:49am
It's Iceman.  Fans who don't know Namor well would assume he needs water to use his powers, which won't always be around in-game.  I know he doesn't, but I don't think your average not-really-into-comics fan out.  Iceman is obvious -- he makes ice :D
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Nova would be good, but if Iceman, than I just hope, his voice will be the same like in MUA 1.

i was hoping the same thing about Deadpool, the voice actor for MUA1 was probably the best voice for Deadpool ive heard. He sounded terrible in Hulk Vs. Wolverine.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Shauny7488 on August 13, 2009, 08:08am
Nah, his voice was too... normal i guess. In Cable & Deadpool, Cable can be quoted saying that his voice has "a gravelly, Demi Moore quality". And accoding to his friend Blind Al, she says that his voice sounds like a distinct mixture of "gasoline and gravel". Hence the reason why his speech bubbles are yellow and the font appears slightly mangled. His voice is meant to be different, odd, and extremely annoying. I dont think anyone has nailed the voice perfectly, and i doubt they ever will. But the voice actor on MUA1 is probably the best ive heard so far.

Sorry for getting carried away :D lol

I really don't want Iceman mainly because if he is in then Fury has a chance of being in and then Psylocke and Cyke who are two of my favs will be WII exclusives. I can always get it on PS2 then as only thing I miss out on is Juggs and better graphics.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 13, 2009, 08:40am

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 13, 2009, 08:52am
Yes honestly I think these are the only females with a chance though. Also your english isn't bad.

Emma Frost
Black Cat
Spider-Woman
Shadowcat (I'm iffy on her. If she gets enough support)
Rogue
Psylocke
She-Hulk
Scarlet Witch
Black Widow
Dagger

And maybe Dazzler, Firestar, and Polaris.

I'd say Iceman (please let it be him), but for the flying persona, I don't see a cape of some sort. He's also blurred and hasn't been unlocked or something.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 13, 2009, 12:31pm
I think Ms. Marvel is flying. Some spots like Storm's are weirdly dissapeared so I think she has one flying one next to her like before. This is hopefully Spider-Woman or Dr. Strange. The blue figure looks like he is holding something like maybe a rifle so I think it is Punisher.

If she was as lame a character in MUA 1, I'm sure that we can count on much of the same.  At least Nova would have been a new character to the game.

It's not like we all didn't see her coming. But I'm very happy. Is it just me or do the recurring females (Jean, Ms. Marvel, Storm) look way better than before. Their hair looks great and actually fits them. I hate Sue's hair as I prefered her MUAI 360 and PC hair.

Re: Alt Costumes. Each hero will have one alt costume on disc. We wanted more but they are very expensive to make.

Boooooo.  Translation: "Activision wanted to make easy DLC money, so alternate costumes will cost extra".

Watch, they'll do that.

Only one extra! That is so rubbish. I was hoping 2-3 more at the most. So we know all of Hulk's.

I'm betting the FF have their 80s costumes, Ms. Marvel has her original, and Wolvie his 80s. Jean needs her New X-Men costume as I refuse to only have one other costume for her that is technically the same but a different color.

I don't think Iceman will be in. I mean since when has he been as hyped about as Deadpool, Ms. Marvel, Jean Grey etc. He isn't second-to-last character to be revealed material. I think Punisher will be the secret character as he is very hyped about. I mean they announced that he would have been in MUA1 had it not been the fact that his rights were somewhere else.

And this is why DLC has kind of ruined gaming.

If DLC didn't exist then they would have tried their utmost to have as many characters and costumes as possible.

I wouldn't put it past them to included Power Boosters where every character gets one new power!

Completly agree, i remember back in the day, when they wanted to add stuff to the game, theyd release an expansion pack. But that was for the occasional game, not nearly every single one like DLC.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on August 14, 2009, 05:54am
To be fair games now costs astronomically more to make than they used to, and piracy is much more rampant, meaning they don't get as much return on their money.  Since DLC is tons harder to pirate, that's guaranteed money, even if someone pirated the game.

I can't believe that after 2 years we get only 24 characters which is one higher than before (unless you count MUAI next gen characters and MUAII Pre-Order Exclusive then the roster doesn't change at all), 4 powers each character, 2 skins for each character. And apperently said by some moderator on the forums we get 12 simular discs and 10 hours of gameplay. And both have been confirmed so it isn't false. Just like that mod said the only good things are the graphics and the roster. The costume reveal today better be good!!!
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on August 14, 2009, 09:42am
Here's the difference:  MUA1 was not next-gen.  It was PS2/Xbox generation with a shiny coat of paint.  MUA2 was rebuilt from the ground up, using the newest version of their engine.  The characters lips sync to dialogue, each individual bone is animated (including each finger bone), they recorded tons more VO this time around, it's a new developer (so no being able to reuse stuff), they implemented Havok physics, the engine is truly next-gen, and they're currently working on tons of other projects too. 

You're right.  We're getting screwed over!!$#^&!%#!&@^!!

You know what, grow up and be thankful for what you get.  I'm tired of everyone's attitude around here.

I think Cap, Spidey and Cage will get Secret War costumes. Maybe Spidey gets Iron Spidey. Jean will have Marvel Girl, 90s, or New X-Men. Thor his modern, and the FF either 80s or solo costumes (Torch-Retro, Sue-Malice, Reed-Labcoat, Ben-Street).

would speculating on alternate costumes belong in a different thread?
yes, this thread is for official news
I'm enjoying all the costumes except Wolverine's but I'll get over it. I think Spider-Man will have Secret War or Iron Spider. Cap will have Secret War, and the FF have their ultimates. Thor with modern, Jean with New X-Men. I am unsure about everyone else.
yeah.

I'm really liking how Jean looks in that video, it looks like they're finally giving her decent offensive moves.  Not too crazy about some of those costumes, I prefer the "old staples" but that's just me.  On a side note, I hate the Civil War story arc to death, and it made me hate Iron Man even more than I already did before.  That will probably taint my experience with this game because I'm already not too excited about it to begin with.  I just hope it's a good game at least. 

I am disappointed at the lack of Rogue in MUA 2, she's easily my favorite x-man and I would have liked to see her in MUA.  Gambit is cool, but I would've preferred Rogue... both of them would've been super fantastic.  I guess here's to hoping for X-Men Legends III?  I wonder if they're even going to make another XML game or if they just dropped it all together and will keep going with MUA from here on out?  Would definitely like a next-gen XML for the PC to mod.  Favorite characters + eye candy = :D

EDIT: wtf this game isn't going to be for pc?  Why do people stop making games for PCs now?  I don't get it.  I think PC is the best platform to play on.  It's nice that I can take my Alienware anywhere I want to and play a game any time I want.  Only having it for a console sucks.  I don't understand why PC games are being less and less common.

Well big TC explained why several times in this thread. I think. Yeah. Or maybe not.

Well, if it's ever going to be ported, I wish some really uber guy finds out what tools are needed to mod the thing. I don't mean the Thing, but the game. Noo not the rapper, but MUA2.

And my fav characters are the X-Men, so I'm with ^^^^.

I'm happy with the roster and the costumes seem ok so far. I do fear the last two characters as I am mostly dissapointed with lack of females. In my current roster I have 13 females and 14 males. I just hope we get Spider-Woman as she seems to be the only female who has a chance left.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on August 20, 2009, 11:13am
Even though it'll probably be her, I'd take just about any other female in her place.  I just don't like that character.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 20, 2009, 11:29am
No chance for Elektra due to bad reviews. Scarlet Witch doesn't have a chance as if they include a magic character it would be Strange. I doubt they would give us another X-Woman. She-Hulk, Black Widow, Dagger, and Firestar are NPCs so like I said only Spider-Woman has a chance.

Not for me. I like the roster although more females are needed. At least we will have 4 good powers instead of last time with a couple good ones with many horrible ones. Fusions are more impressive to me than extremes. One skin is annoying but it is nice to have more modern costumes. I still only hate Wolverine's costume.

I'm not entirely impressed by any of these costumes. Some just seem needlessly obscure (like Iron Fist's), others are just bad (Songbird's), ugly (Human Torch) or just downright boring (Luke Cage). Daredevil's even looks off to me - it just looks like his head is too big for his body.

Maybe there will be others that are better.

Interesting that the article is showing Spider-Woman and Lady Deathstrike. No where in the article does it actually say these are playable characters though. For all we know they could just be NPCs that we'll run into along the way.

SO here's another one. Anyone post this yet?  http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/101/1018946p1.html (http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/101/1018946p1.html)

Looks like both Cable and Bishop are boss characters, depending on which side you play. The way it's worded almost seems like Bishop could be a playable character though. Trust me, I'm not reading into it. He most definitely is not on my playable character wish list. And they mention the Iron-Spider costume as an alternate costume for Spiderman. And I cant help but wonder who this ultra powerful character is that you unlock once you beat the game. First time I've even heard this mentioned. Safe to assume this character isnt one of the 24 playables? I'm wondering if maybe it's Dr. Strange showing up at the end.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: BLaw on August 27, 2009, 06:01am
Yeah and this line:

Quote
The costume you can unlock is also affected. Again using Spiderman as an example, he can only unlock the Iron Spider costume if he goes Pro-Reg.

Wow ain't the alternate costumes guessable..

I think that Nicky Fur (pun) is NOT playable. reasons: wasn't stark the director of shield in Civil War?  Or was it later on?
Anyway, Nicky ain't superpowered.

But I do think Spider-Woman has a good chance.

There's only one character left, and according to that IGN article, its a "superpowerful" character, which Jessica doesn't quite strike me as.  However, I'm sure that later on she'll be DLC or something.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 27, 2009, 02:12pm
We have two character slots left.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: BLaw on August 27, 2009, 02:23pm
One who doesn't need to wash his costume (Iceman is covered in ice which blocks the dirt).
One super powerful superhero (Sentry)

Jessica's costume can be torn, she needs to create a whole new suit every time XD
She ain't a super powerful hero from what I can recall. Let's see if she can tear Carnage apart.

That's what I think, and I have hope for these. Especially Iceman who is totally special and unique. Sentry would be something new, and I think the fans voted for Sentry. I remember the time that people on this forum were saying OMG SENTRY DA BOMB 4 REAL DAWG OMG OMG SENTRY FTW 4DAWINZ!!!1!!!shift+1!!!! Okay, not like that, but a lot of people came asking ME for Sentry skins and such. When I started meshing, "OMG yoes is soo good make Sentry model for me policeeeee". Okay not like that, but they did ask me so many times I lost count of it. Since Sentry became an Avenger people became fan of him, I wouldn't leave him out of the roster at all and I wouldn't be surprised if he was the last character. lol @ my pls "policeeeeeeeeee" :P
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Quentin Hex on August 27, 2009, 02:40pm
sentry doesn't have to wash his outfit either. just saying.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 27, 2009, 02:41pm
The washing costume thing was for Ms. Marvel.

If it wasn't for the superpowerful clue I would still think we had Punisher. I still have high hopes for Spider-Woman and until she is announced to not be in then I will believe she isn't playable.

I think the last character is Spider-Woman, Cyclops, Iceman, or Punisher. Then the secret character is Dr. Strange, Nova, Scarlet Witch, or Sentry.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: shadow on August 27, 2009, 02:43pm
If powerful means super strength, so Sentry is my choice.
For Christ's sake, not Iceman again!
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 27, 2009, 02:46pm
By powerful I think they mean cosmic, magical, or omega-level mutant. So that goes why I think Dr. Strange, Nova, Scarlet Witch, or Sentry.

Honestly I don't think Sentry will be in. Many people think Nova is in but I don't see him making it either. I don't see Scarlet Witch also no matter how much I want her yet I think she has some chances. Really I think Dr. Strange.

Quote from: wikipedia
The Civil War storyline — involving the introduction of the Superhuman Registration Act — forces a split in the superhero community and Strange, opposed to mandatory registration, leaves the Illuminati and goes into seclusion in the Arctic region until the issue is resolved.

When Strange returns from the Arctic he secretly shelters the team the New Avengers, formed after the events of the Civil War, in his residence and assists on several missions.

Dr. Strange and Scarlet Witch would not be included, I'm almost certain (certain when the game is released). The developement team clearly stated that no cosmic and magical character will be in the roster.

Oh and btw, the one that was blurred and flying which I mentioned before, I wouldn't be surprised if it was Sentry and the other one Iceman.

The alt custome choices dont really make sense for me, what theme are they going for? Some have Secret War, others have modern, others have random ones, ultimates, and now alt originals. I thought they would all get either modern or classic. Maybe they are for team bonuses.

Ditto, I was hoping for something a little more classic (like her green one with the short skirt and yellow crown/mask or her Ultimate) not something that's a little bit obscure like this one.  I mean, it's not as obscure as Iron Fist's, but still.

If you think of it, it wouldn't be a joke, more of a sign in the Big Book of Video Games, as: Stan "The Man" Lee was here, 2009 September 15. I think it would be cool, and he should do it, while he has the chance.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on August 28, 2009, 02:08pm
Seeing as he is an NPC I don't think he is playable. I would like him but only a bonus. Not taking a 24 character slot. He should have been pre-order exclusive instead of Juggs although I am happy to play as Juggs.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 28, 2009, 02:13pm
I still can't wait to find out, how he will be in. It would be cool as a playable and an NPC. (I think it would be nice as playable, I mean, he is old and if he doesn't have luck, he won't live too long now and they can make MUA games after even 50 years, so if they would do this, then everyone, lets be happy, just this once and if not, then there's no problem).

Spider-Man has his Iron Spider costume and Spider-Woman really is NPC. I just hope she is DLC.

Wow, cool news, I'm glad, there is still the chance, that last character would be a new one.
Still suspecting Stan as the ultra super character (or Sentry or Nova).
But wait, what if Aunt May from April 1st? I can imagine anything now.

Post by: Gevth on August 28, 2009, 04:35pm
Imagine that in the X-Men movies Stan Lee was in there instead of Storm. Or if he was in the Avengers movies instead of Giant Man. It's one thing to have a cameo, but him playable over someone like Nova, Silver Surfer or even Nick Fury?

So, until the last character has been revealed I will deny ever thinking about him having a chance in the game, and I will also deny the existance of every post mentioning that possibility.

PS: This post? Never existed.

PPD: See?

I'm hoping that Polaris will be included. She's a pretty powerful mutant so she might be the secret character! They'll most likely drop in Magneto since he's been in every one of these games though... Here's to wishes coming true lol.

Fan kit has a bunch of folders with this content.

Images of every character in full costume.

MUAII and Anti and Pro logos.

Wallpaper folder.

Game Cover Folder

Anti and Pro Folders

Game screenshots.

People use this to make fan sites of the game.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Gevth on August 28, 2009, 08:10pm
Hmmm, interesting, the characters in the fankit seem to be posed as in the character selection screen. That is only important in that Ms. Marvel is shown flying, so she takes the spot next to Iron Man.

here's the video where the screen can be seen: http://ps3.ign.com/dor/objects/14233937/marvel-ultimate-alliance-2/videos/mua2_trl_demotailer_72809.html

When I zoom in I can see legs (and perhaps a TAIL or CAPE) of somebody. The "person" is between Luke Cage and Penance. Take a screenshot, and zoom in.

EDIT: O wait, that's Gambit who has been erased in scene.

Post by: LX - Rampage on August 28, 2009, 11:41pm

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 29, 2009, 05:41am
Why a tiny girl? I don't know, but they just give me this feeling, that he could be a playable (or a funny DLC).

Maybe I'm wrong, but in the Team Selection Screen, could that blur of motion above Invisible Woman be Quicksilver (see pic below)?

Post by: Dihan on August 29, 2009, 09:26am
It's Ms Marvel because the character selection poses are identical to the official art. For example, compare the art in Marvelfan's signature to the ones in the character selection screen.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: BLaw on August 29, 2009, 09:55am
Well it's sure that they did not have a "mannequin". I think they used the Ironman manny in that picture as a placeholder for another flying hero. *Points eyes to Sentry*. But I think it's obvious that the blue blurry figure is our our most favorite hero, Iceman. I'm not a bully, but I'm just hammering on the possibility that it's Iceman. :P :P
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: LX - Rampage on August 29, 2009, 10:21am

When you say two Iron Mans, do you mean there are 2 on the background, or one in the active team and one mannequin? Because in the background I can see Mr. Fantastic and Venom too, and I wouldn't discard Storm being somewhere around there.

I think the blue guy is Punisher as it seems to me that the figure is holding a rifle. Being blue really doesn't mean it is Iceman.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

That ain't confirmation.  I could whip up a fake DVD sleeve, put it into a DVD case and take some really close-up blurry pictures too.  I'd just wait for the official word.  News Lad said someone from n-Space (the Wii developers) would be posting official info on the official forums soon.  I figure I'll wait until then to say it's official.

Some info.

Jean's tp stun was replaced with tk stun so it would work on robots.

Jean's block is tk shielding.

IW can't fly to make her different from Jean (thanks VV.)

Defintally no PC version

No X-Mansion in game

Ms. Marvel's alternate is very well loved

Thor's hammer throw pulls him forward

Spider-Woman has radial blast as a boss

Storm - lightning, hail, wind

Only some attacks can break blocks

Force fields are mostly indestructable (Jean and Sue's blocking)

Sue does have invisibility

Force field for Sue when blocking and for one power

They avoided weak and ininteresting powers

Jean is mix of cosmic fire and tk

Cap has hidden bunker

Stark tower is back

Magic may appear. No guarantee but most likely DLC (Strange and Wanda)

10-12 levels for 3 acts

They choose heroes from beginning (Like Cap, Iron man, FF, Wolverine, Storm, Spidey, Jean) and others at CC 2008

IW and Jean can lift cars

Hobgoblin looks interesting. But werent Hobgoblin and Green Goblin actually 2 different people?

Wondering what the Ms. Marvel alt will be. I'm figuring either classic costume, or possibly the Warbird costume, which is what I'd prefer.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

We have Warbird. That is default but she wore it as regular Ms. Marvel too. I hope original.

Had we seen Justice before? I dont remember, but im glad both of them are in together.  Im guessing Firestar is a boss.

I'm excited by the whole "XMLIII may happen" comment as well. Especially if we see characters such as Havok, Polaris and Dazzer as finally being playable.

I would be beyond happy if Firestar and Justice at some point become DLC. I could easily see Jean Grey and Human Torch's powers being recycled for that.

Post by: marvelfan12345 on September 02, 2009, 05:52pm
Those would be nice but I don't see any of them making DLC due to the limited roster and other non X-characters. I would have said Emma but I doubt her too. Why?

First they said no weak or damageless powers so no stun or anything for Emma.

No mental damage so that takes out all tp.

She isn’t complete diamond and they wouldn’t make her only diamind.

And she won’t affect robots which they want her to do.

I think we will only see her as an NPC but as we won’t see the X-Mansion I doubt that too.

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Larcetin on September 03, 2009, 10:54am
It's definitely Iceman!

Clues on HeroHQ:

- This character does not fly.

- In our game, this character has an extremely flexible combat style which emphasizes multiple attack ranges and powers supplemented by melee.

- Inspiration for this character’s design came from Marko Djurdjevic, Yanick Paquette, Chris Bachalo, and Humberto Ramos.

All of them have worked on Iceman.

Well, in some sort of way, he flies, but it looks like, that it will be him. It's kinda sad, but okay for me, if his voice will remain the same, like in MUA and XML2.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: TheStorm on September 03, 2009, 12:13pm
Well I don't mind if it is him anyway, cuz he's one of my fav characters ever, but I don't understand why they kept him so secretive?
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Larcetin on September 03, 2009, 12:19pm
I think he is the last character simply because all the other characters have been leaked before.

There is a WII video of gameplay but not worth posting.

IW and Torch seem the same as MUA and Iceman looks different.

Psylocke looks like her XMLI converted plus powers from NodoubtJr's mod of her. She has the same idle, something which looks like a tk spear and even a power like her tk slam.

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on September 04, 2009, 02:13pm
Everything for it looks the same as MUA except in a slight super-deformed style. You can tell it was built for the PS2 and then ported to the Wii. It's a shame when the Wii can handle a lot more than that - just look at games such as Metroid Prime 3.

Though it does look likely that we could be able to get things from the PS2 or Wii versions of the game. Just look at this screenshot, for example:

(http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/2009/246/951210_20090904_790screen007.jpg)

Post by: marvelfan12345 on September 04, 2009, 02:19pm

Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: nodoubt_jr on September 04, 2009, 02:20pm
Where can i watch the video, i want to check out Psylocke. I really hope we can use some of that stuff in MUA1, if we cant get a pc version of MUAII maybe we can at least use some of the newer models.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Dihan on September 04, 2009, 02:22pm
I'm not disappointed if it means we can get MUA2>MUA1 conversions for characters like Songbird, Green Goblin, Iron Fist, Penance, Psylocke, etc.

Though right now it looks unlikely that I'll get any version. It's just not one of my gaming priorities any more.

I can't believe it, Psylocke is exactly like her XML1 version just with some new powers, she even has the same stance animation... same with IW and Human torch.
What a shame I thought that she (Psylcoke) would be unique especially since she's an exclusive character, this is dissapointing...

But on the other side it could be great if the models can be imported so we can use them in MUA1

They are definitely using Alchemy, I posted about it a while back: http://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php?topic=3667.0

but the thing is knowing how different it is compared to the version used in MUA1. So far, the animations and effects seem exactly the same (which is also a good thing).

I decided to get 360 version. Hopefully Scott and Psylocke will be DLC. It has been said that all playables will be the same as MUA or XML and maybe even same voice actors. I'll get it if they have good reviews.

I just don't get why they try to make things make sense in both aesthetically and in-game (this skin instead of Speedball, Telepathy not affecting robots, effects and animations have to look detailed and real from a way to close distance), and then some others don't (Iceman's ice-slide has no ground support, some bosses cannot be affected by stun or grabs, changing characters on the fly).
They should've known by now that not everything has to make sense in a superhero reality.

You know it's funny you say that. I've noticed that on quite a few of the male characters. As in wow, they are definitely packing! Have you checked out the in game pic of Bishop on IGN yet? That one definitely gets your attention. HAHA.

When you write things like this, it's better to give a link that has the complete information. You make it sound as though it could be posting it here that gets you banned there, which I really don't think is the case. And then, I wouldn't know what's the policy when you post a link to a site that has a link to a different forum where the scans are posted. Is that an insta-ban too?

Once again, could you post a link to the topic where they said that? It's not because I don't believe you or because I'm planning to upload some scans, but rather because I'd like to know exactly what they're trying to say. What I am sure, is that if I see them posted in, let's say, gamefaqs, I'll provide the link here, if I see anything interesting that's worth mentioning. That's basically what I've been doing with the alternate skins.

Quite honestly I dont think they have the time to be checking out other forums for what people are posting, hell they barely monitor there own forums. When the whole Blade, Cyclops, Psylocke thing came out on their site it was up for almost the whole day before a mod got around to pulling it down. Pretty sure you are free to post whatever you want here, just stick a spoiler tag on it so no one gets their undies in a bunch. Personally if someone gets the guide I want to know anything and everything.

thats crap, mods on a proffesional and public site should not ban people for what they say on another forum. you can freely do that on your own forum if someone says something they shouldnt there, but to ban them because they said it somewhere else is just over the top and controlling.

But did i miss something? i didnt see anything in that thread about banning if you post it here. Someone just mentioned that they hope they dont post it here.

Who cares?  It's not like they're going to check every forum anyway.  Can we drop the discussion and get back on topic though please?  I'm sure people who are checking here for official news don't care if Person Y gets teh bant on another forum for posting things on this forum.  I for one, am one of those people who do not care.  If they want to post pics let them, no sense worrying yourself about what others do.  Why bother with another site's rules on this site anyway?  It's not like they can affect us.  If nothing else it gives us more info about the game and that was the point of this thread in the first place.

IMO it was something worth discussing, we dont want people to not post important news here because they are afraid they may get banned over there.  But yes this is not the place to discuss this as its not "official", so back on topic.

Some other interesting things I noticed about the Wii version:


The more I look at this the more I'm hopeful that the Wii/PS2/PSP versions use the same Alchemy version they did in MUA1, as it really looks like they didn't change the engine much at all, just a few gameplay mechanics here and there.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on September 05, 2009, 02:38pm
And they will be using MUA and XML powers it seems
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Teancum on September 05, 2009, 02:41pm
Yep, looks like it.

Man, I hope that at least the PS2 version uses Alchemy 3.2.  I'd be ecstatic if I could use a couple'a MUA2 characters in the Xbox MUA1 mod, not to mention XML2.  The good thing is that if it used 3.5 or lower we could port part of the game to MUA1PC.  We don't have even 1/4 of the manpower we'd need to do the whole game, but it would be fun to play around with.

Im more excited about this than the actual game being out. I really hope that the skins and skeletons work in XML2, but if they dont i hope that they at least work in MUA1. I may start modding MUA1 if this is possible.

Post by: Teancum on September 05, 2009, 02:48pm
And I'm hoping a certain archer will at least be a NPC ally in MUA2 so we can do a more fitting mod for him.  Nonetheless I'll be upgrading most MUA1 Xbox characters where I can, and dropping in Venom at bare minimum.  Looks like before too long I'm going to have to learn how to crack the 27 character limit in some way.

Well I'm back so we have more manpower.  We did lose BliZZ though it looks like.  But me and him were working on the original XML->XML2 and the XML->MUA project along with you, so at least I have some experience porting.  I'm honestly just more or less looking forward to new effects from MUA2, and maybe a few new models.  As for porting the whole game I don't know if I want to do that just yet, I'd honestly rather get back to XML1 and port the entirety of XML1 + XML2 to MUA's game engine.  But that was a hell of a long project and an uphill battle at best.  :runaway:

We'll figure out how to crack MUA's limits at some point in time.  I'll get back to trying to work the .exe in the future once I finish Emma, Rogue, Gambit, and updating Psylocke.  Before I get the character limit done I want to figure out a way to port the handler for Power Theft over to MUA, or at least come up with a script that will work in it's place.  I refuse to accept defeat and I *WILL* get Rogue's Power Theft working in MUA some how.  *shakes fist at MUA*

I don't think it is possible to port XML to the game as their was a project lead by Teancum but it got abandoned. Also all effects and powers for PS2 will already be from XML and MUA so that won't be new only the new characters.

Anyway lets get back on topic
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread

Some models may be the same, but im sure there be plenty of models, effects, skeletons, etc that will be completly new. Then theres npc's and maps. We could do a lot with that stuff if it does work in MUA1.

I was just going through some of the threads on Hero HQ Forums and someone suggested that Storm's alt costume might be her first classic one?

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2624/3883119788_7cc60a7aca_b.jpg

I mean if you think about it, it might be possible, they probably wouldn't need a lot of work for it.

I'm ok with that choice, I guess, since it is my favourite Storm costume, but I'd like something different than her Astonishing one, since it's quite similar to her original one?

So at the end it was her Astonishing costume (Bianchi's version)...
I have to say that this is, at least for me, one of the best alternate costumes of the game.
I also thought that this is far better than her default costume, and this costume (astonishing) is not my favorite...
And her face looks acceptable to me. And I say acceptable, not well done, since Storm is one of the most attractive females on Marvel.

But,we are talking about VV people, after seen how they "conceived" Spider Woman, Ms Marvel, Black Widow and almost all the females of the game (including their plastic hair), I think it's clear that they don't have any idea of how to make a "good looking to your sight" woman (body, face...)

I dont know how to feel about Storm's alt, she sorta looks like a drag queen, but i kind of like it. I really dont like that custome, but at least its current and new to these games.

question for VIPs on the MUA2 site: do you guys have to sign in everytime you go on or are you already logged in? I dont go that often, but everytime i do i have to sing in again.

Storm...  I can't help but shake my head at the awfulness of her costume.  Almost every costume in this game sucks, especially the alternates.  I mean... wow.  I wonder why Raven isn't doing MUA2 and VV is?  Raven did a much better job with their games.  With this one, all of the characters look like trash, and their alternates are even worse.  The art director should not have a job after this game gets released, because these are some of the worst looking and proportionally challenged characters I've ever seen.  I seriously mean it.  That guy needs firing asap.

Raven rocks.  Activision please bring them back.  If you have any sense at all, bring them back.  Vicarious Visions, at this point, looks like they're just awful.  Put them back on porting to the Wii and keep them away from the main consoles... please :runaway:

Totally true on every point.  I've loved every Raven Software game that's come out.  VV disappoints me a little bit more every day.  I'm sure the professional reviewers are gonna really rip into things like alternate costume choices and character models when it comes down to it.

Still, I sortof feel bad for VV.  Dan Tanaguay had said they worked 60+ hours for over a year to get this out.  Must be a bit of a bite to the keyster to know that some decisions made early on are gonna tick off fans and gamers alike.

I really hope they release it for PC. Then at least our community can make right many of the wrongs in the game.

Yes, I do actually.  Given the quality of everything else it seems pretty sub-standard to do such a bad job with faces.  Frankly the face and hair are far below industry standards nowadays.  When they can't get some of the most important details right they didn't do their job.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: marvelfan12345 on September 09, 2009, 06:49pm
Still I think you are expecting to much for absolute perfecty.

That's like me expecting you to do a perfect job on Black Cat's mod with no future updates cause she is perfect, and if she isn't I would come barging in your thread complaining and calling you an amateur modder for her not being perfect.

So I do think you are expecting too much. Do I admit the game could be better yes. Did they do all they could probably not, but I don't expect complete perfection. No one is perfect including me and you. Well except God but I don't want to go to religious matters

Sorry if I sound rude or harsh. I just don't see how you expect them to be completely perfect.

Anyway it seems IW is levitating which gives hope that she doesn't fly but levitate. Same thing I know but they said she can't fly not levitate.

Agree, when you have the technology and the talent you can create amazing models, with decent hair and excellent proportions, (body, faces)
Have you ever seeing the characters of Soul Calibur 4 or Street Fighter 4? I think that all the women (and the men too) of those games looks fantastic, and I don't think that they used strange software and unique tecnology different than the one who was used by VV, especially since both games are for the same consoles than MUA2.

marvelfan123435, I don't really think teancum expects perfection. I think he's just disappointed like me. If the character design looked like MUA 1, I wouldn't be as disappointed. And since it's a sequel, I think it's fair to expect better instead of worse. An evolution.

We all agree MUA 1 isn't perfect, otherwise we wouldn't have this community dedicated to modifying it. But you don't see people complaining all the time.

I guess most of us just agree that the art in MUA 1 is better.
Title: Re: Official News from MUA2 Thread
Post by: Quentin Hex on September 09, 2009, 07:38pm
i agree with that, but people are going into the nitty gritty details when you will probably be seeing these characters from a bird's eye view, not always close up like the screenies (unless gevth get's his hands on this game's codes too), so small details arn't always going to be a big thing. that's my 2 cents worth, anyways.

Post by: Teancum on September 09, 2009, 08:03pm
Sorry if I sound rude or harsh. I just don't see how you expect them to be completely perfect.

Because it happens every single day with next-gen games.  Look at Halo 3, look at Gears of War, look at God of War, look at Infamous, Modern Warfare 2, etc.  And clearly they have the skills.  When you look at other models, or even parts of the same model you can see that the skill is there, they simply did not follow through.  That means for any cutscenes or conversations you'll see all of those imperfections.  I could be a lot more forgiving if there weren't any close ups, but there are.  Frankly most of the problem in my opinion is that these guys haven't done anything but port games and develop DS/Game Boy Advance games in the last five years - they've just never tackled anything like this.

No its not the same thing, we work with what we have.  They have all the tools needed to make the game perfect, to redo and redo whatever they want, shot they can do all new tools and redo the whole game to make it perfect.  So no sorry this point is way off.

It doesnt have to be perfect, but it shouldnt be worse than the first game.  For the most part MUA1 models were great, except for a couple they were mostly great, and even if they werent at least we had four to choose from.

I don't like coming to this topic and find a whole page with no news.
Please, maintain rationality and don't let this site be like most others, where there are mostly 2 kind of people: the "this game is going to suck", and the VV legionares.

Neither does her MUA1 version, but at least the models looked better than this garbage.  Sue looks like trash in her alternate uniform.  I do have to admit though, at least VV is showing consistency in their suck.  *claps*

Don't forget how many models they had to do. Almost 50 only for the playable characters. And the game is mostly bird's-eye perspective. You can't compare this with Soul Calibur 4 or Street Fighter 4.


So?  Who cares how many models they had to do?  Raven pulled it off no problem.  I think the models in MUA1 look better than the ones in MUA2 so far, and Raven did MORE than VV did because they did 4 per character, not just 2.  There's just no excuse for them being as awful as they are, especially when technology is getting BETTER and their work is getting WORSE.

If I'm going to pay top dollar for a game I want top dollar quality to go with it.  Otherwise there's no point in buying it for $60.  Now if there were a few changes then I would throw $60 out for the game, if nothing else, just to show support to the company for a good product and a job well done.  Hell, I own 2 copies of MUA and XML2, and a copy of XML1.  I bought them when they first came out too.  Why?  Raven did a damn good job with their games and they deserve the support.  So far VV doesn't look like they do, they've done a bang up job at making this game look like a pile of crap.  I understand people put time in to this game, and I feel very sorry for the programmers.  I'm sure they did an awesome job.  However, the art side of it screwed up the game for everyone.  That's a shame, because I had high hopes for this game and suddenly I don't even want to get it at all.  Not even the PS2 version for ripping models for MUA1 mods.

Well, all of you guys just saying, this is bad and that is bad, but VV made a lots of new things, since MUA. The Alchemy engine has been upgraded in several ways, including Havok physics technology, a new 3D sound system and syncing character's lips to dialogue. I think I'm happier with fewer skins, if they made the gameplay better. For me, MUA 2 will be awesome. On every console.

True. If Raven made MUA2, they would have reused everything. But I want to play MUA2, not MUA1 with a new story.

I'm not saying the game won't be fun.  It just won't be epic, which is what everyone's expecting given the previous game, amount of hype, and quality of some of the in-game models.  I'll rent it and have fun, and if it's actually good and has great DLC I'll probably get it used after the price drops.  But I'm not going to hide my disappointment, that's just stupid.  It's been built up by the press and VV to essentially be a MUA1 killer, so I'm judging it against that.  In my mind MUA1 was around 9.5/10.  So far MUA2 has a running score of ~8.0/10 in my world.  Gameplay and DLC had better be awesome if they want to live up to expectations.  Truthfully I think they just bit off more than they can chew.  This is their first next-gen game (aside from Wii games, but 1) they were all ports, and 2) the Wii is literally just a Gamecube with more horsepower and a Wiimote) and both fans and generic gamers alike expect the very best out of it.  Maybe if VV had done a few next-gen games it would've been better for them, but in the end I just don't think they're experienced enough to pull off what we expect.

Long story short:  This game will be fun, but not awesome.  That's the problem.  They just aren't living up to expectation for whatever reason.

Well, all of you guys just saying, this is bad and that is bad, but VV made a lots of new things, since MUA. The Alchemy engine has been upgraded in several ways, including Havok physics technology, a new 3D sound system and syncing character's lips to dialogue. I think I'm happier with fewer skins, if they made the gameplay better. For me, MUA 2 will be awesome. On every console.

VV hasn't made anything. The Havok engine has existed for ages. The technology for lip synching and 3D sound has existed for ages. You can count the additions they've made on one hand and the stuff they've changed needlessly on two.

There's no need to fix what isn't broken.

Yes they made. Changes since MUA. I don't care if the technology they use existed already, but it is new, since MUA. So for me, they made something. I just can't wait, to play it. BTW, they will be making downloadable skins, right? I hope I remember well, because that would make the game even better (for those, who have problems with the skins).

Street Fighter 4 has 19 characters, all with alternative skin, so it's almost 40 models. I really don't think that the amount of characters justifies. Think of how many skins people do here. We're not talking bout half a dozen guys developing a game in a basement. We're talking about an industry that makes more money a year than the movie industry. Us fans complaining about the comicbook movies is totally commomplace and that's good cause the makers work harder to please us. Same thing with the game. We're the ones they have to please! Of we don't demand quality, who will?

You can't compare this with Soul Calibur 4 or Street Fighter 4.

Ugh, i HATED the Street Fighter 4 models, the proportions were horribly off. Ryu, Dan and Ken had bodies like old Zangief, Chun-Li, already notorious for thunder thighs, got even worse, Guile's hair looks like someone stuck a block of cheese on his head and Zangief looked like hes been spending his time between SFA3 and SF4 popping steriods. They should have stuck to sprite fighting, god knows we need a decent sprite fighter, theres only so many times they can re-release Marvel Vs Capcom 2 before people start getting over it.
Street Fighter 3 was 2D, and it was beautiful, a work of art.

Which is exactly my beef with MUA2, there was nothing wrong with the models that we had in MUA. Could the textures have done with a HD makeover? Sure, id agree with that.
Could we have done with new, bigger and possibly more interactive and destructive levels? Aboslutely.
Could there be several new characters added? Sure.
Should there be new powers and abilities added such as phasing and clone generation. You betcha.
New skins? Sweet as.
Should we get a brand new, and even better and more epic story than last time? Cant wait.
Should we get new game mechanics? No.
Do we really need remade models of previously existing characters? Hell no.

In a nutshell, the first MUA was so good, that (i believe anyway) MUA2 should be more of an "updated version" of MUA. Instead of remaking the entire game. There were things in MUA that didnt need to be changed, but they changed it anyway.

Seconded.  That's my biggest gripe with MUA2.  All that time spent changing things that didn't need to be could have been spent elsewhere, which is why I'm so disappointed.

True. If Raven made MUA2, they would have reused everything. But I want to play MUA2, not MUA1 with a new story.
And I wouldn't enframe the IW pic and nail it onto my wall, but I think it's OK.

You forget Raven also made XML1 and XML2.  They didn't "reuse everything".  Sure they reused some stuff but that's what smart game developers do.  They use the stuff that works and change the stuff that doesn't, which allows them more time to focus on new content.  XML1 and XML2 were hardly the same, and XML2 and MUA1 were hardly the same.  So what makes you think MUA1 and MUA2 would have been the same?  Raven made MUA1, so they knew how it was built and would have been the obvious choice to make a MUA2 since they would know exactly what to improve on it.

But anyway, no matter how you sugarcoat or dress up a turd, at the end of the day it's still a turd.  So far, that's what MUA2 is, a turd.  Raven is still better than VV and did a way better job with their game than VV is currently doing.  Considering technology is better now than it was a few years ago, I find that very sad.  The game might be fun, sure.  But it will be nowhere as good as it could have been had Raven been the ones to make it.

Its a discussion board we are here to discuss things. If people dont like what others have to say, then ignore the thread or skip the post.  I dont see why some people have problems with others saying the game looks crappy or its going to be bad, you didnt work on it so why should you feel bad about it or feel like you need to defend it? In the end you will buy the game whether we say its sucks or doesnt.

Personally i have some issues with the game, but im sure when i get to play it i'll be over it and just enjoy the game. I think this will be like the XML stuff, were people thought XML1 was a better game but could still enjoy XML2 and all the new stuff.

It isnt like VV came up with this design on their own. It's based off of her current look in Astonishing X-men. If you want to bash someone, bash the current artist that came up with that look. Regardless though, I like it. From seeing the previews of how the game plays, it isnt like we are ever going to be playing the game and will have the time to stop and think, "Oh wow Storm looks like a Tranny and has huge hips, oh wow Invisible woman has weird hair and her face is off..." and so on. The previews make the game look very similar to MUA1, if that's the case all the details people complain about wont even be noticable when you are busy fighting and stuff is exploding, yadda yadda yadda.....

There will never, ever, be a costume that everyone wants. With this type of game you simply can not please the masses. In all honesty I'm quite happy with the alternate for her. It wasnt her crappy Ultimate uniform, or the over used punk 80s uniform. It's something we've never seen in a game before. The only one I would have preferred over this one is her Xtreme Xmen costume. Same with Invisible Woman. I dont really care what her hair looks like, or that her face "looks old" which I totally dont see. The look works for what they wanted from the game. A lot of the alts I'm not happy with such as Juggs, Iceman, Iron Fist Capt America the other 3 members of the FF. Others I really like, such as Daredevil, Luke Cage(I may actually use him for once), Jean, Spiderman. The moral of the story is: You can never make everyone happy. Just the way it is.

Post by: Dihan on September 11, 2009, 09:00am
The thing is that there's no choice at all if you hate both costumes for a single character. In the past games there were four costumes for most characters which means everyone is going to like at least one of the costumes. For example, with Dr Strange I don't like any of his costumes except his Ultimate one. If that one wasn't there then I wouldn't have used him at all.

There's just no choice. If you hate one then you're going to use the other. If you hate both then you're screwed over with something that looks like a turd or just ignore them completely and use something else that at least looks satisfactory.

I personally can count the good, memorable costumes on one hand. That's not good when there are nearly 50 overall.

It's all over gamefaqs and herohq.
Apparently, the only way to play with your old stats (and unlocked characters and skins) is to carry them into Legendary (hardest difficulty), which is in my opinion a stupid downgrade and an unnecessary limitation to the New Game+ mechanic, if this is true.

You just need to look at the list of games they've made. It's full of shovelware and ports. They obviously felt that they had to prove themselves and what better way of proving themselves by starting from fresh?

The problem with that is the whole engine Raven had set-up was already good enough; it was tried and tested and even when the next game utilising the engine was released there were enough changes to have new mechanics yet still retaining the accessibility of the past games. There's no need to fix that which wasn't broken.

I wonder if VV actually planned to have eight-ish powers and four-ish costumes per character but found that they had snookered themselves with the costly way they had gone about making the four powers and one costume.

Everytime you create a new game you must start all over (lose unlocked characters, costumes etc) unless you plan on Legendary

First review:

http://ps3.ign.com/articles/102/1024740p1.html

General reviewer comments
http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/xbox360/marvelultimatealliance2?q=Marvel:%20Ultimate%20Alliance%202


Oh, and I called the fact that they'd rip apart the costume choices:
Quote
http://www.1up.com/do/reviewPage?cId=3176029&p=4

And remember when MUA offered up to three alternate costumes per character? Get ready to be content with just one. Granted, they tend to be more detailed than in MUA (such as Spider-Man's Iron Spider variant), but on the flipside, most of the alternates are ones that, frankly, seem pretty lame. Of all the Wolverine alternates to use, you're stuck with the Secret War one that makes him look like a fat Hugh Jackman? Instead of providing the original Speedball outfit, Penance's alternate is...a shirtless and scarred Robbie Baldwin?

Other gripes I called:
Quote
Yet, for every stride forward, the game has a tendency to follow said step with a crazy fumble. The ability to switch team members at any time (and not just at save spots) is awesome -- until you notice that both switching characters and even their costumes comes with a noticeable loadtime. Those fusions? Yeah, they're cool, but they actually repeat a fair bit. Despite the "over 200 unique fusions" claim, what you actually see are the same ten or so with a little variation (Spider-Man tends to throw people or objects with his web, Cap tends to refract energy with his shield, and Thor tends to toss up a tornado) -- and some of these fusions are just palette swaps. Or how about the camera; normally, it presents a tighter, more intimate view that shows off the significantly improved production values (such as when a helicopter crashes into a building). But sometimes, especially when it switches from user-controlled to fixed, it becomes a complete hassle (such as a level taking place within a hall-filled interior, and the camera angle emphasizing a doorframe more than your team).

There's also a persistent feeling of oversimplification and semi-stinginess. The variety of powers and items from MUA gives way to a pretty straightforward and predictable power evolution for each hero (you start with two powers, and always unlock new powers at levels five and ten; there are also passive abilities that level up predictably as well). Individual items per character have been replaced with a set of three boosts that apply bonuses to the group as a whole; it's newbie-friendly, but I prefer outfitting and specializing each character individually, rather than blandly applying a universal bonus to everyone.
Title: Re: PS3/360 (Vicarious Visions' version) talk and Official News [renamed]
Post by: whiteking on September 15, 2009, 02:11pm
Not a big surprise really... we talked about that things almost one month ago, yes the game will have great things but compared to MUA1 there's no significant improvements...

And another quote from the reviews:

Quote
I just hope that for the next Marvel Ultimate Alliance (or whatever they call it, maybe "Ultimate Marvel Amalgamation" or something), either Raven returns as the developer, or Vicarious Visions learns from its missteps and crafts a better game.

I hope the same...

Is it a generic code that anyone can use or is there only a limited amount and does it work for both ps3 and 360? I just picked up the 360 version today.
Title: Re: PS3/360 (Vicarious Visions' version) talk and Official News [renamed]
Post by: Scotimus on September 15, 2009, 07:29pm
When the code was emailed to me from Gamestop it stated it was specific for just me to use. I think once you activate it, it cant be activated again. At least that's how it seems for the PS3.

On another note, i've been enjoying the hell out of the game. I have Jean Grey unlocked now and she's cool to use. But hands down my favorite character is Storm. She's a beast, and her alternate costume looks pretty friggin awesome in game. Everyone was calling her a tranny, but since you very rarely since the character from the front it doesnt matter. Jean's alt looks pretty good in game too.

Same here. But for Thor and hulk I used cheats as I missed out on a few of their stuff and I wouldn't be able to unlock them.

Teancum says that VV messed it up as it isn't true to the Raven versions but I disagree. It has been updated in new and great ways and that is what you expect in a sequel. Not the same stuff over and over again.

Anyway I love fusions, the ability to change teams anytime, and how at the end you are at a base and can do simulators and replay any mission which stays true to the original mission.

+ different equip slots

They should've add stuff instead of removing stuff. MUA1 would be superb if it had the same stuff (related to character customization) as XML2 + more. MUA2 is even worse. Graphics don't cut it. I like MUA2 BUT MUA1 = much much better than MUA2 and XML2 = better than MUA1 in terms of customization IMO.

Anyway, does anyone have the PS3/360 version and can take some pictures or so?

Did anyone else find the camera angles to be annoying and mostly stiff? I played through some of the first level and found the maps to be very linear (limited areas where you can move) and sometimes couldn't get the camera in a good position to show my team. Hopefully it improves for the next levels, or maybe I just don't know how to control the camera properly :)

I am just angry that to download Juggs you must have Gold XBOX live version and I have the free (silver one) I think. So I didn't even get him.

That sir, is why Xbox makes me angry in general.  You should not have to pay for an online service that every other console has for free.  Especially having a premium service to download *FREE* content with a game you just purchased.  Viva la Playstation.

The only thing I thought MUA lacked was indeed the character customization that XML2 had.  Spending the points to upgrade the characters yourself was something I liked.  There are also no "jack of all trades" type charcters in MUA.  You are either Focus heavy, Body heavy, or Strike heavy.  That's it.  Some characters are well rounded and should have a more even distribution than just a crap ton of 1 stat, and mediocre of 2 stats.  You do not get to upgrade the characters in any way other than their powers, that's it.  Sure, you get 1 equip but I thought XML1 and XML2 did better with 3, because it gave a greater variety to characters.  I DID however like that in MUA you could finally take points out of powers and spend them elsewhere should you decide to upgrade a different power at a later time.  That was nice to not have to spend 10,000 and 100,000 in order to do that.

An example of how the 3 archetype character system was a hinder to MUA would be Gambit.  I couldn't figure out what character type I should make him in MUA at first, but finally ended up just going with bruiser_light.  If I made him support, yeah he'd have a lot of energy and energy regen, but he wouldn't be able to take hits, and for someone that excels at combat that is not an option.  But also, if I made him a bruiser that just wouldn't make sense either, Gambit isn't known for his super physical strength, he is more of a finesse fighter.  However, in XML2 even though characters have a predetermined "type", they are not locked in to that and are not unchangeable.  It was nice that the game gave you some stat points to work with that you could upgrade yourself in addition to the ones that the game applies itself.  So I was able to spend points equally in all categories for Gambit, making him a well rounded character who can have a balanced use of melee and power usage.

That was something that if they did in MUA, it would have made it better than XML2 and MUA2 by far.  However, I still think it's better than both by comparison, that would've just been icing on the cake.

No you dont I downloaded him with silver.

Does anyone else think that juggernaut is a fun and good character to use ?   Because from playing with him on my team for a while he seems better then half of the roster.

This topic hasnt been filled with belly aching at all, you are so right! Thank god you put me in my place.

I think the game is just as good as the first one. No each character doesnt have 58 costumes. No they didnt get everyone's favorite costume. No they didnt get everyone's favorite character. They game is still plenty playable. Except for a few small things, to me it's almost more or less just like the first.

I think your talking about the other juggernaut download that you can download if you want to play with friends that have him which I think because its only a few days old only gold members can download it.
But to get Juggernaut you press the home/circle button in the middle of your controller and look through the little menu until you find redeem code (Or something like that) and then enter your code.

If anyone needs a Xbox360 Juggernaut code PM me I might have a working one.

Fairly objective review.  They pointed out all the good, without leaving out the bad, and vice versa.  It got about what I thought it would (7.2/10).  The jury is still out for me though.  It needs a patch to fix bugs and some dang good DLC, but I'm leaning more towards buying than I had been.

It seems Im not the only one with camera issues.

Has anyone experienced any of the bugs that Gametrailers review points out? I hadn't heard anything about them yet.

I have had it happened a few times (guys stuck in walls) and I've only played a few hours. One of the bugs I've had happen is that one of the bosses was stuck in 'invinsible mode' when she should have got out of that mode and started a new sequence. I had to restart the boss battle from the start. Just pointing it out in case others are interested.

I've run into two bugs. As soon as I got the final crystal to unlock Jean Grey I immediately switched out Iceman for her. When I tried to go back into the game the screen just went black. Had to power off the PS3 all together and restart. The other one I had was when fighting YellowJacket on the rooftop. He knocked Storm off of the roof top onto the ground below and no matter what I couldnt get her back on the roof top, It was kind of cool to fly around the city though, I had to quit and reload from a save point to finally get it working again. A few minor camera angle issues, but I had the same issues with MUA1 so that was pretty expected. Now that I've beat it in heroic I'm going to try again in Legendary mode and go Pro-reg and see how it plays out.

The camera issues have been present since XML1, so honestly that doesn't surprise me.  I thought they would've fixed it in XML2 but it was no biggie, and it was a disappointment for it to last through MUA as well.  However, it STILL being an issue in MUA2, even with a new company developing the game, is kind of sad to be honest.  However, those camera issues have been in since the beginning.  In MUA usually if you double jump the camera resets immediately on the active character and you're ok again, you don't have to run a marathon to get it to reset.  However, I'm not sure if this is the case with MUA2, but you might try it *shrugs*.  I just read a review saying that they had to run in blind or backtrack very far until the camera finally reset itself, but really if you just double jump it should work.  It did in MUA1, XML2, and XML1.

I played through the game once so far and the only issues I've encountered were that a number of times heavy particles will cause frames to choke as iammingy noted, and once the game appeared to crash and my screen went green before my PS3 restarted itself.

All told it's been a good experience with MUA2 overall. However, I almost cast it aside after 3 mins of play. The opening few mins felt awkward at first, but I kept going and eventually got invested. I was still rather let down with the limit to 4 powers and only 1 alternate costume for each character. The costumes were the most depressing issue by far, especially given the fact that I didn't care for 22 out of the 24 alternate costumes. I really only like Spider-man's and Thor's alternates. Though the Fantastic Four costumes weren't bad either.

I know they will likely release costume packs via DLC as well as additional characters, but it just feels like a sequel to MUA could easily have twice the number of characters in its roster. But who knows, maybe that's something they will shoot for via multiple DLC packs.

His lunge attack is like Venom's special move from Marvel Versus Capcom and his "Symbiote Surprise" move is taken directly from Spider-man Friend or Foe. Still, he looks very bad ass!!! To be honest, Carnage from Ultimate Universe never looked as cool as the alternate costume. haha

Instead of his range move where he throws a axe it shouldve been like how he shoots the little bits of symbiote like in the comics and maybe instead of his multiple axe slash attack he has multiple weapons and change's weapon for every hit/attack.

DLC is just another opportunity to make more cash. They will pick the most wanted ones for sure. 
This game isn't meant to be an exact copy of the Civil War storyline in the first place any way. If you think Carnage is not a good choice for DLC, then a lot of (playable) characters are already out of place in the game already. I have a feeling that Sentry might probably make it.

DLC has been leaked from the new video on gamespot its Carnage,Cable,Psylocke,Magneto and Black Panther.
Picture : http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a68/Bionicflmer/mua2DLC.jpg
Video : http://au.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/marvelultimateallianceiifusion/video/6233249/today-on-the-spot (The video is about a PC game and MUA2 DLC).
And from what I read in the thread there is some form of boss survival mode or extra missions coming with the pack , I cant watch the video atm because of my slow internet.

If this is what the pack turns out to be Ill most likely just be getting it for Carnage,Cable and maybe Magneto.
How many leaks has MUA2 has so far ? :laugh:

Neat. I think. I hate BP.

They're really bad at hiding stuff from the public.

EDIT: if you look at that roster, you can already tell that they are reusing stuff AGAIN. BP = Mua, Cable = XML2, Psylocke = XML1, Magneto = MUA/XML2... Carnage is like the original in the roster.

I was surprised to hear about him getting in.
So we get 1 new character , 1 console exclusive , 2 MUA1 characters , 2 MUA2 NPC's wonder if this will kinda be a recurring theme for the DLC packs.
EDIT: Just saw your thing about re-using characters after posting.

I hope so because they have all ready said about not getting DLC for the N-Space versions which could mean we still get a Gold edition plus extra goodies for mods and its not really fair for one console to get DLC.

6:04 I read.
Also the video is meant to mention psylocke and 2 sim missions coming next week but then at the end says the pack comes out at the end of the year so some sort of confusion.
Description of 2 sim missions:
"They then show sim mission 1, which is in a room with like flame traps with spawning bosses—each boss you beat adds time to the clock.
Sim mission 2 has a long hallway and your team is in-between two moving energy fields—you have to fight down the hallway while remaining between the two energy walls as stronger and stronger enemies attack." - Hero Hq forums.

Post by: MarvelFan12345 on October 15, 2009, 05:30pm
I do think we may not get them. People who hate the pack won't buy but they don't realize that their added money is what will convince VV to add more characters and most likely the characters they want. At the end it will be the people who wanted Hawkeye or Cyclops that prevented us from getting them. I've heard rumors that this is only the beginning and they will continue to make packs but most likely only if they buy.

A lot of "leaks" are.  It's free publicity, and they don't have to advertise.  You don't think stuff like this would seriously be leaked out without the devs knowing would you?  It's not like someone hacks their computers and puts this stuff online.  They purposely make it so someone "discovers" it and "leaks" it to the media.

Well, I still hope, that there will be a sixth DLC. So, Psylocke will be on the official site next week I think and maybe they will put them on the site, like one on a week or one in two weeks.

BTW, happy because of Carnage, Cable and Psylocke. I like Black Panther, so this is good, but I don't really like Magneto. Still, happy that there isn't any Doom :D

DLC choices are nice. Magneto would most likely be Anti. I'm pretty sure that while he hates humans he would have respect for Cap and would never side with the government.

Actually I didn't think of that. But as Anti it would also be a war, he wouldn't have to work with the government, most likely would be on Xavier's side, and on the side with more mutants

Carnage's alt is visible in Venom's signature TC.

It makes me think that VV is doing specific alt costumes to impress people of their graphical qualities instead of keeping it theme-based (like secret war). Psylocke's alt is full of details. Which is cool btw..

The difference between the two sales-wise is that MUA1 had a slow but steady sales whilst MUA2 had large amounts of sales in the first week and then the sales have decreased at a more rapid rate than MUA1 had in that time.

E.g. First four weeks of sales for the 360 version:

MUA1:

1: 59k
2: 33k
3: 21k
4: 20k

MUA2

1: 201k
2: 73k
3: 43k
4: 20k

The next six weeks for MUA1 are between 25k and 31k.

The next six weeks for MUA1 are between 25k and 31k.

Another thing that has to be considered is that while MUA2 looks like they sold more than MUA1 initially, it's because MUA2 had more advertising and was set up with higher standards due to Raven's MUA1 success.  If if weren't for Raven, MUA2 sales wouldn't have been as much as they were.  People were expecting an awesome game because of MUA1.  Honestly I didn't even know about MUA1 until after it was already released.  MUA2 I heard about it well ahead of time because of the advertising which was due in part to the success of MUA1 so Activision wanted to get the word out.  So long story short, thank Raven's MUA1 success for MUA2's sales.  Too bad VV bottomed out and fucked it up though.

I think every single MUA2 character is in the process of being converted so unless we say something hasn't been taken up then you probably shouldn't do it. I know for a fact that Iron Man has already been taken up by Blizz.

i have MUA2 for the 360 and i love it!!!!! the fusions get a bit stale after a bit and i miss the special xtremes for each character but it's still amazing. i like it much more than MUA1 and i feel that it was a few steps back but a steps in the right direction. i would have preferred they kept the xtremes but thrown in fusions as a plus. the four powers per character really didn't bother me either since each move was pretty unique to his/her abilities unlike MUA1 where a lot of stuff was redone with different effects. the graphics are beautiful too. would rather have had a different secret character but all the other guys are so much fun i really don't mind lol. can't wait for psylocke!!!

Cable looks good. Love how they included the fusions for him w/ his partner Deadpool and mother Jean (in my opinion she is his mother as she has the same genes and DNA that Maddie had so they are the same in some ways). The Deadpool and Cable fusion looks very cleaned up even though it really is the same as the other clearing fusions like it.

I guess like mother like son for me

Phasing could be done if they just make it part of the attacks, not something you can do all the time. Like for an attack she goes through and enemy and punches them in the back of the head or something like that, but have her solid most of the time. That or control phasing like they do with teleporting, so she can just run through the whole level or out of maps.

Includes:
-reasons for choosing characters (Black Panther got in because Marvel said so)
-reasons why some characters weren't included (Hawkeye didn't get in because he wasn't a top-poller, and they didn't want more than 1 repeating DLC character, compared to MUA1 DLC)
-Date: 360 - november 5th; PS3 - november 5th or 12th. If all goes well.

This is from the BP article: "Additionally, the previously GameStop-exclusive character Juggernaut will be available for download as a standalone download on the 5th, for 160 Microsoft points and $1.99 on the PSN store."

As for "what we want", what we want is Carnage, according to most people who answer polls.

Possibly because they want to remaster her and make her good. If they just use her XMLII version I refuse to buy her as I'm sick of that version. Just took her out of my roster as I don't like playing with the same Rogue in different games. Exactly why I am waiting for the Rogue mod you will be making Rage.

If that then ok. That should be borrowed. Another reason I don't use Rogue much in MUA cause that ability does not work. Hopefully that problem can be fixed.

CARNAGE - Carnage was a fun add to the game because he’s ALL NEW to the whole MUA franchise, and actually ranked #1 in our polls and surveys and other things among Marvel characters not previously in MUA or MUA2. He’s pretty recognizable on a mass appeal basis. We were particularly concerned about making sure Carnage played differently from Venom and I think the team did an amazing job delivering on that.

WTF? Carnage, recognizable on a mass appeal basis? NOBODY, from my girlfriend, to my mom, to my friend at work, nobody even knows the character. OK, he ranked high on a specific poll, but that's quite far from "mass appeal".

Post by: DJay Saint on October 29, 2009, 06:45pm
I'm probably in the minority but I don't like Cable.  I think he's over hyped and as far as more interesting Marvel characters are concerned, a poor choice for DLC.  Carnage is just a stupid character I think.  I mean sure a psychotic serial killer who mutters lines like "dinner time" might be amusing for all of 30 seconds, but seriously we already have Venom playable in the game.  I've had my fill of Spider-Man playable villains, and they had to add another?  To me Carnage isn't appealing whatsoever.  It still annoys me to no end seeing villains in the "HERO select menu".

If VV are that gung-ho on making villains playable, then maybe they should come out with a villain game like MUA, except you control the villains who are fighting the heroes for control of the world.  I dunno.  I'd just rather see other hero characters who are more deserving of a spot in the game than some random over hyped and uninteresting villains.  Like Punisher for instance, how did they make 2 MUA games and not include him yet?  Blasphemy I say.  That's just unacceptable.
Title: Re: PS3/360 (Vicarious Visions' version) talk and Official News [renamed]
Post by: Teancum on October 29, 2009, 07:04pm
THQ still has exclusive rights to Punisher for a few more years. 

Back on topic - I'm pretty much set on not buying the game now.  Too bad, I was really looking forward to quality DLC, but from the looks of it the data shows that totally random, semi-popular characters are better than classic staples.  If it comes out on PC I'll buy it, but no more 360 version for me.  It's a definite rent-n-return.

Seconded. Why not a Daredevil crazy killer villain? We'd all love to have Bullseye instead of Carnage, no? Taskmaster? Deathstrike, maybe? Having Spiderman and Venom playable in the same game is overkill already.

Nice work on the costume, VV.  The only critique I can give this time around are that his arm doesn't look like steel, but more like ice (should be shiny and more silver-y) and his face has become a little too tough, making him a bit old and similar to Walter Matthau (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Matthau).


Off-topic from Cable but still on the subject -- I just want to say for the record that I think Vicarious Visions did a good job overall.  The problem is that this game was too big for them, and they subsequently couldn't live up to expectations.  Now if they had, say 1.5 times the amount of people (and wouldn't let their less talented modelers do character models) then they could have made this game epic.  I feel like it deserves it's 73% average rating -- but that if they had more people and better talent it could have easily been 90% or more.  It's just one of those "so close, but so far away" situations.  That's why I get so irritated.  They could have done so much better, but they bit off more than they could chew.

It's got to be just 1-2 bad modelers that have done these terrible models.  Most characters look awesome, it's just probably 10-15 human/biped models total that have strange issues.  Like Black Widow.... WOOF WOOF!

Actually, my gf's brother is a gamer, has played mua2 on ps3 with me, didn't know Carnage, but won't get DLC anyway because he just didn't like the game very much. So you might be right: the majority of people who'll get DLC for MUA2 does have to have some kind of passion for these characters. But even then, Carnage feels like a mistake to me, because there were better choices left, but I know that's a whole different point.

I don't have anything against heroes with swords like Black Knight, but I think it doesn't fit well on Black Panther. He uses his claws in one power and in the other one he uses the sword. That's a weird fighting style.

I usually switch around but one very good team to use is Wolverine, Ms. Marvel, Jean, and Thor. You get mental, energy, physical, and elemental damage. Plus fliers, bruisers, and a healer. Wolverine can be swapped in by Iron Fist if you want the entire team to be healed rather then one member.

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but PC Iron Fist is missing some power effects (dragon effects), at least in Xbox. Compare him with his NPC version playing Pro-Registration and the videos below:

Khm-Khm... (I tried coughing) I quote: "Bryan Shutt – Art Director

Magneto’s costumes have an interesting back story. My original plan was to create an updated “classic” version for the primary costume and go for something more contemporary as the alternate. Both costumes were inspired by Gabriele Dell’Otto designs.
For the updated classic costume I found this neat little pencil sketch Dell’Otto created at a convention in Essen, Germany 2006 as part of his Marvel Heroes Portfolio of work. It shows Magneto in what looked to me like a military commander’s uniform for some sci-fi movie; formal yet snappy.
This appealed to me because I didn’t want to do the “undies-over-tights” look. I was going for something more believable and this particular piece really hit the mark. The sketch did not show a complete body but it was enough to give us some cool ideas so we ran with it.

Instead of briefs I wanted his outfit to look like it had a belted jacket with short flaps in the front and back. These jacket flaps became a sticking point for Marvel, who were concerned it wasn’t “classic” looking enough and that this costume feature had never been seen before in any version of Magneto in the comics (Marvel gives us tons of freedoms with embellishing existing features, but they prefer to keep to the visual precedence that has been set whenever possible). However, I felt that it was a strong design and worked well with Magneto’s image. Around this time we were just finishing up a first pass on the proposed alternate costume. This time it was adapted from another of Gabriele’s designs - Cover art from Ultimate Origins #3. This costume had a fresh, contemporary look for Magneto. His mostly black leather attire felt simple yet sinister with only a flash of color on the helmet and cape. "

Well, I quoted the whole thing here :D (For the ones, who are not a VIP on the official site and are interested in this)

Magneto plays good. His powers are based on controlling and creating metal. I'm happy he is in. Psylocke is nice but can be killed very easily. Cable is also nice, but I haven't used enough of him yet to say much. Panther is very good. Is awesome at melee and can devestate enemies. A different Wolverine indeed. Carnage only activated his powers. Half of powerset is Venom's.

Actually, no, it doesn't. I'm more of a fan of the 80s Magneto - broken, repentant, teacher of young X-Men and solver of crises. Something the subsequent writers (Morrison especially, I particularly loathe most of the things he did with mutantity) mucked up as much as they could.

I downloaded it last night as well. It's really fun to play with. The new simulator missions are really fun, especially Insidious Alliance and Overload. The characters are great additions. Carnage and Panther are great at slashing away at enemies, while Psylocke and Cable are really great with the energy attacks. Magneto is just amazing. They did a wonderful job with him. Also, one thing I really like is how you get the DLC character's alternate costume. Black Panther and Psylocke get they're costume the usual way, defeating a certain amount of enemies. But Carnage, Cable and Magneto get their costume a really cool way. (I can state the ways if you want)

Psylocke and BP get costumes from defeating 50 enemies. For Cables' you must defeat Deadpool with Cable on your team. For Magneto, you must defeat Magneto in the new simulator mission with Magneto on your team (I pretend the Magneto you fight is Xorn, and the Magneto you play is the real one).  For Carnage, you must defeat Carnage in the new simulator mission with Carnage on your team.

Well... I think it comes back to the hero/villain dichotomy that lies underneath the character. What you said implies you favor his "hero" aspect. I'm at middle term. I think he COULD work not as a villain, at least not always, but he could be occasionally playing the role of an anti-hero. But his look should always reflect his anger -- which is exactly the factor that makes him a monster, despite every possible original good intention of his. We could discuss it further at the OT forum.

Yup, those are the ways. I'm glad to see that they didn't go the usual way for earning costumes with Magneto, Cable and Carnage. Anyway, I am already going through the game with new DLC. I'm still very impressed with them. They were all executed peferctly, IMO.

Dude, who cares with that? They made Cable and he is playable on pro side aswell, cause he is like "comes from another dimension". They can say something like that with Nightcrawler aswell. Besides, I don't really want She-Hulk, because not that she is a bruiser, but she is just a female version of Hulk. If they put in another heroine/female villian, then they should put in someone more unique.

Been giving this more than just a trivial play through on the 360.  I just can't recommend it.  Most of the characters voices stink.  Spidey, Nick Fury, Captain America, Gambit...  yeah - they suck.  I like the new "next gen" graphics, but when fighting a boss it's really tough to see which one is the boss.  Raven always picked color schemes for levels that would make the boss stand out.  Not so here.  The controls are similar to the original, but it still feels really funky lots of times - like the controls just aren't as tight.

I can't bring myself to finish it.  I've played through it on the DS, so it's not the story that's killing me.  It's every other thing about this game.  I'm utterly disappointed.  I thought giving it a real chance would be worth the trouble.  It's not.

I'm not trashing the game itself, it's alright... nowhere as entertaining as MUA1... but its solid. Like Teancum said... I'm disappointed

I think the game is great, but I dont think it is better then the First. If you think about it, there really isnt anything marvel about it. I get that there are some villians from Marvel, but other then them it has nothing to do with Marvel like the first was all about Marvel like you had to stop the villians, But the second one is not and I also think its dumb that the wii and ps2 versions are not the same as the xbox and ps3 versions.

I'm starting to think that MUA felt a bit more like a marvel game but I still wouldn't say it was better. The 360/Ps3 version updated a lot of stuff that was really good but it also took some stuff away. But to me the lack of skins and powers aren't that bad. I feel that the powerset is better with only four and I preferred fusions. The shorter roster and storyline was annoying though.

Polaris would have been better than Magneto. Lots of people were asking for her on Hero Hq and I didn't see many people wanting Magneto. Then we would have a X-Women team then. And she would make more sense in the game as I doubt Magneto would take sides and Havok was included as an NPC.

Well, I'm sure, that if there will be future MUA/XML games, they won't come in here and ask permission about, "can they use this and this mod"? Plus, I'm sure, that if Emma Frost will appear in any future MUA/XML game, than she will be in XML, either as a playable, a boss or a normal NPC, but if she would appear in MUA, than I'm sure, she would be boss or NPC. As I said a lot of times before: MARVEL: Ultimate Alliance, not X-Men: Ultimate Alliance. I mean, in a MUA game, they should use just a very little of X-Men (Like a maximum of 4, so that they can be used as a team, maybe a bit more with DLC), and more solo heroes or other non-mutant teams. Although, if they will announce, that they won't make an XML game again, but they will make MUA games, than I don't care who they use. As long as there is a chance for an XML game, than they should keep the mutants for that.
P.S: The People love Wolverine, the People want Wolverine, as long as they pay, the People WILL GET Wolverine. This how the world of money goes.

In MUA we will likely see X characters we have seen before. Wolverine, Jean, Storm, and Iceman are a must now. The first 3 for popularity, Iceman for his ice powers. Cyclops, Gambit, Magneto, and Psylocke could very likely be in if there is room.

They just need to think more about the people they put in and put more differnet people in like She hulk becaue she is popular but she never gets in. And I am also sick of the same people all the time like wolverine, I'm not a big fan of Cap America either.

Well Wolverine and Cap are two of marvel's biggest characters. You will not see a MUA game without them. She-Hulk would be nice though.

Ultimately it's always a popularity contest.  I'm actually surprised that so many characters who aren't as well known to your average person appeared in MUA2.

I think she hulk should be playable but she just isn't that popular like firestar.I know for a fact there's more x-men characters than any other team of marvel so of course therres gonna be more x-men.Plus there popular espicially wolverine storm and iceman

Iceman actually isn't as popular as Wolverine, Jean, and Storm who have now become the must have X-Men. But we will always see him because he is the only prominent ice character. That's fine with me as he is pretty fun to play with.

And She-Hulk is pretty popular. She is one of the few prominent female characters who is based off of a male. Just look at She-Thing. She-Hulk is not as big as Wolverine but I would say she is bigger than Firestar at least. I did hope we would see Firestar as DLC for MUA2 though.

And Teancum you are right. I mean Prodigy, I've never heard of him at all. I was really suprised at his inclusion. MUA would never have had him. And while Cloak and Dagger do have their fans they made it because they were in the original story, otherwise I doubt we would see them. They would be cool playable though.

He was the New Warrior Speedball but became Penance. He's been around from the 90s I believe.

I knew about penance but not Songbird.To make the game sell they would obviously have to put famous characters in and some new ones.And about those people i never heard of are Prodigy(who the hell is he and where he comes from),Fold,Tinkerer,Justice, and Lucia Bon Vardos

Post by: Midnightphoenix on July 30, 2010, 09:50pm

Justice is also a New Warrior. He, Firestar, Namorita, and Penance (AKA Speedball) were all New Warriors. Also the Fold was created for the game, it has never been in the comics.

Title: Re: PS3/360 (Vicarious Visions' version) talk and Official News [renamed]
Post by: MarvelFan12345 on January 20, 2011, 01:37pm
All cheats prevent you from saving unless you use the codes that unlock Hulk, Thor, or Jean

You also can't get achievements or trophies if you activate cheats.
