$20 Game of the Week: Lego Marvel Super Heroes

lego_marvel_cover

With Captain America and the X-men having made their way back into theaters last month, now is a good time to look at one of the finest digital adventures featuring Marvel’s pantheon of heroes and villains. Before licencing issues would force Marvel to disavow the existence of any property whose movie rights were controlled by Fox, and before the company’s gaming department chose to focus on free-to-play mobile games, Marvel fans of all ages were treated to an excellent look at the Marvel Universe, Lego style, courtesy of Warner Brothers and Traveler’s Tales. Waitaminute….Warner Brothers? As in DC Warner Brothers? Well it’s simple. Warner Brothers has the licence to publish Lego Games, Lego has a licence to make toys based on Marvel characters, so it was only a matter of time before this game was made, and it excels as both a Marvel game and a Lego game.

Disney Infinity and Microsoft Spark Cancellation and Analysis

gamegraveyear

This past week, we learned that Disney Infinity had been cancelled due to Disney Interactive’s decision to abandon console gaming. To add insult to injury, the company is closing down its internal studio Avalanche Software, leaving close to 300 people without work (hopefully not for long). This summer will see the release of two final playsets based upon Alice:Through the Looking Glass and Finding Dory. Even Worse, Microsoft decided to shutdown its Project Spark, the Xbox One and PC set of game creation tools that allowed users to create and upload games LittleBigPlanet style. Microsoft ended active development on the game back in September, releasing all the game’s dlc for free. As of August 12, the game will no longer have online access, as players will be unable to download content or upload to the cloud. The reason given for Project Spark’s cancellation was that most of the people involved with the project had moved on to other areas within Microsoft, it wasn’t feasible to continue supporting the project. Fortunately, unlike the last time Microsoft cancelled a big name game (Fable Legends) no studio was shutdown nor was anyone fired as a result. At any rate, this isn’t a good look for Microsoft, as this is at least the third title the company has cancelled (the first two being The Phantom Dust reboot and the aforementioned Fable Legends). Maybe we’ll hear about a replacement for Project Spark next month at E3.

As far as Disney Infinity, click after the jump to learn about scrapped plans, speculation, and possible reasons for cancellation.

Marvel Movie Tie-ins Coming to Disney Infinity

Харматан

Earlier this week, Disney Infinity revealed 2016 plans for its Disney Infinity franchise. Although there doesn’t seem to be any 4.0 release this year, the company palns to release 4 separate playsets. One of which is the Marvel Battlegrounds playset set to be released this month. The set will include a new Captain America figure based on 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. Players can play Marvel Battlegrounds with any 2.0 and 3.0 Marvel character, including last year’s Ultron and Hulkbuster Iron Man figures. Also coming soon to 3.0 is Ant-Man, Black Panther, and Vision, right in time for Captain America: Civil War. Black Suit Spider-man from 2.0, previously only available with the Playstation Vita version of Disney Infinity 2.0 will be available by himself as well. Of course if you were hoping to see X-Men or Fantastic Four related characters, you’re out of luck. In non Marvel related 3.0 news, figures from Zootopia and the Jungle Book will be released for 3.0 this spring.

Civil War 2 is coming to Marvel Comics

CivilWar2-IronMan_vs_CaptainMarvel

Multiple news outlets are reporting that Marvel is planning a successor to Brian Michael Bendis and Steve McNiven’s Civil War storyline from 2006. A product of the company’s semi annual editorial retreat where storylines are planned out for years to come, Civil War 2 will apparently pit Iron Man against Captain Marvel and feature the death of a hero, as so many of these comic events now do.

A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy, according to the synopsis. This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.

Civil War 2 kicks off in May. Not so coincidentally, Marvel’s feature film, Captain America: Civil War, will be coming to theaters that same month.

Marvel Puzzle Quest Coming to Consoles, Sans F2P

marvelpuzzledarkreign610

Marvel Puzzle Quest is a popular free-to-play adaptation of D3 Go’s Puzzle Quest franchise. Based loosely on 2009’s Dark Reign storyline, players collected heroes and utilized them in a match-3 game in order to bring down several of Marvel’s top villains, unlocking and leveling up their heroes as the game progressed. Thanks to Wayforward (Contra 4, Shantae, Mighty Switch Force Go), the game will be hitting Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Playstation 4 later this year as a fully paid title. The game itself will be $14.99 when it releases, and players won’t have to buy bundles of coins or ISO-8. As the game won’t feature all of the heroes from the mobile game at launch (as of now the mobile versions of the game feature over 80 unlockable heroes including Lady Thor), the game will have downloadable content releases. The game will feature local and online multiplayer, which isn’t in the mobile game. No word on the exact release date, but it will be on display at this week’s New York Comic Con along with a version of Puzzle Quest based on Adventure Time. While I would like to see versions of the game for PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS, this will still be a perfect deal for fans who are intrigued by the game but were put off by the f2p features from the mobile game.
