There were rumors abound last month, and Marvel has gone ahead and confirmed it. Remastered versions of Marvel Ultimate Alliance and its sequel will be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC tomorrow.
Apparently, if you want to find out about whether or not a game is coming to the consoles, you should hit up the Taiwan Game Software Rating Information board. Similar to how HAWKEN got listed on a Taiwan Microsoft store page early, three older Activision games (Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron) all got ratings for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
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.
The Summer of Arcade is almost over, which is going to increase our downloadable time for a few more weeks, but some full titles are still on the plate for weekend gaming with the Co-opticrew. It looks like a lot of the staff is especially excited for some Monday Night Combat!
Admit it, there are a lot of games on the market, and not a lot of time or money to go around. You really want the most bang for your buck, but who do you trust to give you the best possible recommendation. We give you our reviews, as well as other sites, but who should give you the final say-so?
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.
The family budget concept is alive and well among co-op couples in 2010, laying waste to dreams of uninhibited video game purchases. How does that translate to gameplay? You'd be surprised at just how well it does.
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!
