The DTOID Show: Pokémon X & Y, Valve's Piston & Day Z

Hey gang! The Destructoid Show is now switching to a twice-a-week schedule, so we'll now be Tuesday and Friday. Today is a Tuesday, so that's why we did an episode. Major news-things happened: a company called Xi3 announced t...

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes announced for this fall

Mixing LEGOs, videogames, and comics together has always seemed like a good idea -- certainly something I would have loved to see as a kid. TT Games is pressing on with yet another title, and this time it's LEGO Marvel Super ...

SmileGate developing Marvel MOBA for Asia

You're already dreaming up the possibilities, aren't you? A multiplayer online battle arena game centered around Marvel characters sounds too good to be true -- and perhaps it is -- but it's happening. Disney Interactive has ...

The DTOID Show: Adventure Time, Deadpool, & Spider-Boobs

Holy crap guys, I think this might be my favorite episode of the show we've done in ages. Like, just in terms of the pure awesomeness/absurdity of today's news. For starters, the ESRB has described all the awful things that a...

Well, it's finally happening, guys. Deadpool will star in his very own videogame, called Deadpool: The Game. High Moon Studios (the team behind Transformers: Fall of Cybertron) will be handling the development duties, with Activision set to publish the game.

Nolan North will voice Deadpool, which is an appropriate choice because he's done the voice for Deadpool in all his appearances ever since Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. It just seems a bit strange because he's doing his normal Nathan Drake-esque voice when he talks. Still sounds great all the same, though.

Now, the trailer itself was absolutely perfect. High Moon definitely nailed the humor and fourth wall breaking that Deadpool is known for. The trailer alone was full of so many unforgettable quotes. My personal favorite has to be, "Now let's be honest, I'm not the only one with a little bit of sh*t in their pants right now, am I?" No Deadpool, you're not.

So, we know they've got the character down, now it's just a matter of if the gameplay will be any good. From what I could tell of the small bits in the trailer (which shows Deadpool riding and punching a guy in the face while they fly towards Earth, among much more), it's looking like the whole game is shaping up quite nicely. What do you guys think?

Is the whole “Marvel versus DC” thing still a thing people bark at each other over? Well, the DC universe has its own cleverly titled MMO, DC Universe Online, leaving Marvel to play catch up with its equally cleverly titled Marvel Heroes.

Of course, the differences in the games are plenty, not the least of which is that Marvel Heroes will be free to play. Yes, the dreaded acronym that leaves hardcore gamers recoiling in disgust, hissing from beneath flower planter in the garden of the current videogame industry.

Anyone who will be at San Diego Comic-Con in a couple days can check the game out for themselves; for the rest of you, I’ll tell you a bit about it.
