Marvel Ultimate Alliance sold as a party

2006-11-25 16:53:00  ยท  Papa Niero

Forget Yahtzee, break out the Captain America! In this new commercial for Marvel Ultimate Alliance (Mua!) a gathering of hipsters hide the the Bicardi and congregate at the Wii like mutant combat is the next MTV. Is this the ultimate party game?  Hell no. It's fun, but I won't go that far. Funny pattern here though ... not only are all future Wii commercials going to portray mid 20's guys and girls fighting off an invisible rapist, it reminds me of the 80's where they had guys playing airplane games by flailing their arms as they were steering with their NES pads. At least the Wiimote finally gives them sane reason to do so. This beckons an even deeper question ... why must actors play video games with their mouths open?

For more information and nuggets of my ire, read Destructoid's public service announcement on how to enjoy your Wii without rupturing your spleen. If you've had a chance to experience Mua already, post your house party impressions.
