regarding marvel, the rumour mill (the one that tends to be accurate) says that there will eb no xmen in the initial roster, with xmen offered as separate dlc; considering how the thing with marvel and fox are, that makes a lto of sense; that was fox won't get money from the sales of the base game, only from the sales of the xmen dlc.

Right now, the only scene that describes character motivations is a two-hour piece of non-interactive DLC called Kingsglaive.


there is also the 4-5 episodes "tv" anime series that analyzes the backstory of the road-trip characters.

Tons of DLC, but the only characters who cost extra are the X-Men.

Parappa, LocoRoco, and Patapon weren't grouped together because they're music games (LocoRoco isn't); they were grouped together because they're all PSP to PS4 ports.

The cup noodle commercial for FFXV just had me rolling around in laughter. It was too damn funny. XD

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite: I wonder if they gauged any polls to see who might get in for this MvC. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Super Mario Run: Well this is it, Mario. Welcome to the mobile world of gaming.

apparently that's a factor for marvel girl and rockmanX since they placed high in the previous polls.

Dude, how did you get that armor in Let it Die? I've just been coming across aprons and low tier coats, even with the blueprints. Do you find those past the fifth floor? Haven't been able to make it that far because my team is in TDM right now, so I keep on raiding. Unfortunately, the majority of players haven't figured out how to set up their defenders, so I'm rarely able to steal one of their fighters... Can't build up my defense because of that.

Wait, Let It Die is a game?
From those obnoxious "Girls Go Wild"-style ads, where some Death-costumed idiot goes out into the street and does "hip-edgy" Spike TV bits with rock-concert folk who are shocked it's, like, icky 'n stuff, I literally didn't even know what it was. Confused

I'm gonna guess Storm, Wolverine, Psylocke, Magneto, and Phoenix.

Fox wouldn't get any money for the X-Men. Movie licensing doesn't work that way.

Those are screens from the publisher. Sounds like you're way deeper in than me at this point.

Those ads are ROTTEN. But the game is cool.

It's not about licensing so much as it's about Marvel not wanting to give Fox free advertising for their movies. They have a pretty wide X-man ban for games are hugely limiting their presence in comics.
