I can't decide whether or not Ryan Penagos is a lucky man to have a friend in an insane, sociopathic, unpredictable, fourth-wall breaking, superhero/villain. Regardless, the Marvel Digital Media Group's Executive Editorial Director brought along his buddy, Deadpool, to this year's International Comic-Con to talk about his upcoming game, Deadpool (Xbox 360)
. Strangely enough, Ryan Penagos's mouthful of a job-title was not discussed.
Titbits from the interview include: Deadpool claims that the reason that the game is being made now, is because technology has finally caught up with his awesomeness; the best weapon in the game, and the 'Merc with a Mouth's' favourite, is - unsurprisingly - his mouth; Deadpool demanded that developers, High Moon Studios, ramp up the levels of awesomeness in the game to a ridiculous degree.
Not much else concrete about the game can be gleaned from the interview, but it does give you a clear sense of the psychotic, dark humour to expect from the title.
will be released sometime in 2013. Check out what we know about the game so far here
