Wow, I'm not much of a gamer. In fact I don't even own a game system at the moment. But I'm actually hyped for this one. It may actually make me breakdown and buy a PS2, XBox, or Game Cube. Just because it's such an ingenious idea. An RPG game set in the X-Men Universe that's expected to be released 10/5/2004. So far what I have heard and seen, it looks very promising. Especially in the graphics and gameplay areas.
You'll be able to pick a 'team' of four X-Men characters, from around 16 choices. Not all of them are locked in so far, but so far the list appears to be as follows. The original 5, of course. Beast (yay), Angel, Cyclops, Marvel Girl/Jean Grey, and Iceman. As well as Wolverine, Storm, Colossus, Gambit, Nightcrawler, Forge, Psylocke, Marrow, and more. Plus it sounds like up to four people can play simultaniously. Each controlling one character. Plus Colossus and Wolverine can perform the Fastball Special. Sweet.
It appears that most of the designs for the game will be in the 'Ultimate X-Men' style. But there have been pictures of the original team members in the 'New X-Men' style as well. So it could be likely that there will be a choice between Ultimate and New style for several of the characters. Which sounds pretty damn cool. Here's some links to news, pictures, and video from the upcoming game. So, what you guys think?
MTFBWY and HH!!
