Gaming’s Fourth Wall Has Been Shot Down: Deadpool Video Game to Blame
Finally. If there’s one thing I’d have to admit is missing from gaming, I would say it’s fits of schizophrenic, homicidal rage.
The Merc with a Mouth may not be getting his dues on the silver screen (his script gathering dust in an executive’s office as you read this) but gaming has come to its senses and plopped Deadpool in the middle of his own title. Published by Activision, High Moon Studios – the guys making all that robotic buzzing in the industry this year with their sequel Transformers: Fall of Cybertron – are crafting a faithfully gorey, juvenile exercise in third-person comic book action with Deadpool (no one could’ve guessed that name).
Voice acting vet Nolan North (I’m obligated to write “better known as Nathan Drake”) is once again the mouth behind the merc for this misadventure, having played Deadpool in other virtual Marvel entries such as Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and Marvel vs Capcom 3. Nothing really beyond this trailer was officiated by any of the parties involved save for a broad 2013 release. We don’t even know which system we should expect Wade to throttle.
Does that stifle my excitement? No, sir. Not in the goddamn least. We’ll just say it’s “coming soon” and, unlike Deadpool, try not to laugh at the fact we said “coming.”
