It was July that we saw the return of the DLC for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 after it has mysteriously disappeared earlier in the year. It was also at that time we told you the content would disappear forever come the end of the year. Activision's marketing guru Dan Amrich reminds us of this in the latest post on his blog.
No one wants to be that awkward position. The third wheel, the guest without a pair, the odd man (or woman) out. This week in Co-op Couples I’ll explore the benefits of having a third wheel on a gaming date, and helping them feel welcome and appreciated at the same time.
After one of the most bizarre and unfortunate DLC disasters we've ever seen, the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC is finally available for European PSN users. Now, everyone go out and get this DLC featuring Juggernaut, Psyloche, Magneto, Carnage, Black Panther and Cable before they disappear. At the end of the year, you will no longer have access to any of this DLC.
Since we've recently had an announcement of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2's returning DLC, I'll keep these details short and sweet. 5 playable characters plus a few new challenge mission packs for Marvel UA2 will be available on Xbox Live, as well as PSN for $9.99 (800). The DLC playable characters are:
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 has faced a lot of issues since its release. Fans annoyed with exclusive content, glitches that compromised that exclusive content, then the DLC content and all of the data was pulled from Xbox LIVE and PSN. Neither system even had Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 listed as a game anymore, but now that has changed until the end of 2010.
Yeah, yeah, I'm like a broken record. My last entry for this column was for the same game, but what can you do? I love super heroes, I love co-op, and I usually game with my 8 year old son, so Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is getting lots of playtime in our house. We are nearly at the end of our second replay, and I've been focusing on unlocking alternate costumes for many different characters. The costumes are like the characters themselves: some are very nice, but some totally suck. I'll let you know which are which.
The back of a game box has never been so literal. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 promises a gargantuan battle...this cannot end well.
Two Amazon sales today will be of particular interest to co-op fans. The XBox 360 version of online juggernaut Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is discounted, down to $39.96. If you prefer comic book style Juggernauts, then Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is a good bet (though Juggy is only available as DLC). The game was recently discounted down to $40, but today's sale allows you to pick up the Wii, 360, or PS3 versions for a mere $19.99. The game wasn't as good as it's predecessor, but it's worth playing at that price for the story, alone. Click on the boxart for the deals, and help support Co-Optimus!
This past week has been a very busy one for my family, but over the weekend we managed to squeeze in some Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. For our first play through, we played as Iron Man's side. For the achievement's sake, and to experience the other side of the war, we decided to continue the game on a tougher difficulty, rather than loading our pre-choice save game.
Sure we had plenty of Black Friday Co-Op deals, but Cyber Monday is the biggest online shopping day of the year.
Activision has announced that the demo for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 has hit the Xbox Live marketplace for Gold members. The demo allows players to check out the Washington D.C. mission in the game and also allows local co-op play.
We finally know the details about the first DLC pack for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. Most of us will be able to purchase the pack on November 5, though European PS3 users have to wait until November 12. The DLC will set you back $10, or the MS Point equivalent. So what do you get for the money?
The Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 character list continues to grow, this time adding Deadpools occasional partner in crime, Cable. Cable will join Carnage in the latest DLC Pack. We're going to call this the "C-pack," and pretend it stands for "Co-op."
As gamers, we often wonder what goes on behind the scenes with game developers. What hoops are jumped through? What hurdles are cleared? And where did that bit of quirk in the game come from, exactly? Well, Game Informer got a fun list of things that went on during the development of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 that made it what it we get to play.
