Xcavate: SDCC 2011's Marvel Video Games Panel

Well, first I thought my next post would be a wrap-up of the entire SDCC 2011 but then the video games news was SO MUCH that i just HAD to create a new post for it! The main games discussed that I'm gonna highlight are X-Men Destiny, Marvel Universe Online (MMO), Marvel Pinball 2 & Super Hero Squad Online, well, cos they got the X-Men of course!

X-Men Destiny
*There are costumes that you can use that inspire their looks from Quicksilver, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Iceman, Toad (?!), Caliban amongst others.
*Surge, Pixie, Forge & Northstar are in the game as well.
*Jean Grey is dead in the game & not all the X-Man will survive.

Marvel Universe Online
*Will be a free online game to play! :D And it's multiplayer!
*Good news is you play as the heroes themselves! Deadpool has been announced (see the pic below) as one of the playable characters. I'm sure Wolverine's a given too. :P

*Gazillion has been working with Marvel for at least a year to develop the game.
*Expect Marvel environments & adventures based on past stories!
*Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate X-Men amongst others) is penning the story with Gazillion's Lead Story Designer, Andy Collins, & it's got a lot more story than the usual MMOs.
*Jeff Lind, Studio Director of Secret Identity Studios at Gazillion said that "people who have come to the Marvel characters through different ways will recognize something in the game-people who have only seen the Iron Man movie will see something, hardcore fans will see something." It will incorporate elements from the comics, movies, games & animated series.
*You can create your own continuity in the game.
*Dr. Doom is the main villain in the game.
