first off, that guys voice is hilarious. And second, they should have Mark Hamel be the Joker. Remember his role in the animated series. Oh, so classic.
@marco0798: Marvel Universe Online is cancelled (apparently), it's been a long time now and the "incarnation" of Marvel Universe Online is Champions Online (both were developed by Cryptic Studios at that time, except now MUO is apparently NetDevil). I saw a comment that they discontinue it for the 360 but it doesn't mean it won't come out on PC. But it says that Marvel Universe Online is permanently Offline (discontinued, cancelled). Btw, to those who don't know or are still questioning whether this (DCO) is going to be monthly subscription based, it's been announced that this will be free. I forgot where the site was and it isn't wikipedia, it was announced by a representative.
So I'm pretty much buying a PS3 FOR this and Arkham Asylum....well and maybe a couple of other reasons, but these being the main two!
WoW is similar to this... but this game looks way better in terms of interaction/graphics. Most of you seem to be doggin on it, but WoW gets credit for a great MMO, and its got decent graphics but the interaction is great. I don't play WoW, but i do like the concept of it EXCEPT the lingo
@savageforrlife if it's not being announced until 2010, what are we looking at now? isnt this some sort of announcement? isnt that what a trailer does? announce things?
savageforrlife says "Also dont complain about animation people..." STFU- I'll complain about whatever I want- this is a trailer, where the developers pay people to showcase their best work to impress the public... And I'm not impressed
o.O I want it fo meh ps3. Fawk PC. Also dont complain about animation people. Its not even being anounced until 2010. So were looking at a 2011 or late 2010 game. Still got a ways to go.
the concept sounds pretty cool- but not really impressed with animations... hopefully they're far from finished- bcuz if this is near the final product, then i doubt this will be anything good... it may just be the same thing we've already seen except with licensed DC characters now and then... You know what would really be amazing?!? If they had 2 different Universe Online Games- Marvel and DC, and they could fight with eachother- everyone has wanted to pit Marvel against DC...
I just hope this doesn't suck like city of heroes, because I like equiping new armor or stuff like that all they drop in coh/cov is buffers/debuffers and health stuff.
A lot of people are demoting Champions Online over this, but you guys realize that this game is playing off it's license
i think it looks way better that Champions online...at least real comic heroes are in this rather than having a thousand rip offs in champions. It has a great production team too...cant wait
I think this game looks awesome and I'm getting it .If team fortress 2 can Survive on the PS3 for as long as it has I don't see why this can't have and long life. As long as it gets the support it needs to avoid lag and so on.
The trailer for Marvel Universe Online was a lot cooler, and I have to say one thing. If Rorchach is not in this game, I refuse to play. That's really all DC is good for is Batman and the Watchmen. RORCHACH! RORCHACH! RORCHACH!!!
i have mixed feelings about this. I am stoked about a CoH type game with a solid franchise and some legendary artists behind it. Aligning yourself with some of the heroes or villians can get pretty interesting. I personally would love to work with the Joker and move up to build something for myself LOL. However, my biggest issue is, last I read, they could not figure out how to x-platform computers & the PS3. I own a PS3 and a comp that should be able to play this. I would love to play this on a PS3 (in full HD glory) however am afraid that the PS3 version will suffer a much smaller player base than the computer version. This would pretty much destroy the game in a several months. On top of that, the computer MMO industry is cut throat and brutal. So many games have been overhyped only to have significant numbers cancel subscriptions in a matter of months. All MMOs need significant populations to remain fun. No matter how good a game is, if they do not have the population to sustain it, the game will fail. So now I just have to wait and see if this concept flys with the console gamer. And if it flops there, hopefully, us MMO gamers on the computer will be able to do away with our WoW epics and WaR battles and make a semi-permanent switch to this game.
Looks pants. Hopefully someone brings out an MMO that's worth playing on PS3. Give my right arm to play Eve on PS3.
"Nayhem1 WOW and COH are yesterday's news with yesterdays technology, this game is going to make them look like Pong" is that what they said about Warhammer online? that worked out well.
I wasn't 'wow'd by this trailer... the most impressive thing is running up buildings... my loyalty may come later when they go into details about power sets, travel powers, costume customisation, etc. etc.
if this has a huge community with free roaming online citys then my eyes will certainly look towards this game:D
WOW and COH are yesterday's news with yesterdays technology, this game is going to make them look like Pong
Well it does come across as another City of Villains but I have always wanted to beat the hell outta superman.
If a game is run by SOE then it is bound to end up going bad and im talking from experience as i have played all SOE titles and the only one that was well supported was everquest 2 all others were thrown to the wind with little thought for the customer. Good old saying in the gamer community which will ring true for quite a while to come S=sh** O=on E=everyone.
People should just stop making MMO's until World of Warcraft dies down or The Old Republic knocks it down. I'm going to predict, with a 90% chance, that this will be a failure. Maybe it won't shut down as fast, but it won't make numbers that will compete with Guild Wars or WoW
This game looks retarded the guy anoncing sounds like hes chewing on stirofoam as he speaks mayb i might get if it gets total rehaul and everything redone b4 it releases but im guessing right now it gets a 7/10 gamespot
