New stuff over at IGN. It's looking like it's going to be a not bad Powerstone style game and it seems the story mode is going to be fairly elaborate.

Yeah this game looks really awesome. Makes me want to boot up both the Powerstones again. Make sure to watch the videos, The one where Spider-Man winning is awesome just because of what he says. "Know what I call that? A Web-Slinging Ass-Kicking!" That's Priceless!

If EA was smart they'd make Marvel VS DC cuz as far as I'm concerned this game = Marvel VS Marvel. Thx for the link.

I saw this game at EA's press conference...it had really simple combos, operating mostly like a smash brothers game. It's also only two player max, and does not (to my knowledge) have multi-tiered environments. They also mentioned that the game is not balanced - certain characters are just plain stronger than others. I mean...no fighting game is balanced, but to not even try...

As much as I do not want to defend EA, I really don't like how people keep referring to this as Marvel v.s EA. It is a Marvel game with made-up characters, nothing more. Would I prefer more true Marvel guys versus these wack new guys? Of course. But what is there *really* to complain about other than the game not being good in the gameplay department?

No one bitched this much over Abyss in Marvel v.s Capcom 2.

Yeah, no kidding. They might have well just have made a Marvel Universe fighting game / powerstone game. No one cares about these EA characters. They are not even EA characters because they were made for this game. Stupid idea. EA thought the game would be 'better' or would sell more copies if it were inherently a 'company a' versus 'company b' game. But the thing that EA didn't take into account is that in the Japanese versus games, we actually care for the different rosters in each company. No one gives a damn for some made up EA roster.

STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPID. I feel nothing for this game.





Go buy the new Warlock series by Marvel. It is good support this title!

Isn't part of the deal that Marvel gets to publish books based on the newly designed EA characters? Not that comics based on video games do well, and comics based on characters made for a comics/videogame will probably do worse.

You didn't try it at E3? It was playable and it's everything you say it is, and worse. It was pretty much garbage like Batman Begins.

If people want a decent Powerstone clone, go for One Piece Grand Battle.
