Tag: X-Men: Destiny
Okay so remember back in October of last year, there was this trailer for this game that I said I was really looking forward to? Well I do, barely. It is called X-Men Destiny and E3 this year finally offered up some new information: a trailer.
So I admit after the last teaser trailer, this the visuals of this trailer are a bit of a let down, but honestly that is to be expected. Similar to Dead Island’s breakout trailer and its demo comparison, there was little to no way the game could live up to that awesomeness.
That being said the speech given between Cyclops and Magneto was brilliant writing, even if the game play elements and graphics looked a little unimpressive. I admit I was hoping for more of a fully customizable character, rather than three different characters but I can understand the sacrifice. The game is giving hints that it is very story focused (such as the narration of the trailer) which is really what I would like. The X-Men Legends series was fun but the story was hard to immerse myself in and prior Marvel based games have basically all been brawlers and fighters. Still the game is being created by Silicon Knights, whose most notable game was Eternal Darkness, and most recent game was Too Human.
Wow. I hadn’t even heard of this game until I caught this trailer. The trailer alone makes me drool. I did some digging and found this article telling us what we know so far.
Roll Your Own Mutant in Silicon Knights’ X-Men Destiny By Jason Schreier (Wired)
It seems this is the newest game by Silicon Knights, who brought us the awesome games Eternal Darkness for the Game Cube and the Game Cube remake of Metal Gear Solid, as well as recently the not so critically acclaimed Too Human. The game will be some kind of RPG where you play a new mutant, and the game will have a heavy focus on story rather than just combat. It’ll delve into what it is like to become a mutant and how that effects you, and how people treat you.
Which is totally awesome! I have high hopes for this one guys.
