Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 dropped today, which probably gives you a good idea of how I’m planning on spending the rest of my evening.
But while I’m on XBox Live complaining over a headset mic to Kevin about how my dream-team of the Punisher and the Warriors Three continues to elude me, why don’t you head over to ComicsAlliance to see my brand new article about The Best (And Worst) Marvel Video Game Team-Ups!
Much like the article about Batman games, this one brought back a lot of fond memories, but if I’m honest with you guys, I invested way more of my childhood into Marvel’s console offerings. Whether it was a weekend in middle school spent trying to tackle the friggin’ impossible levels of Spider-Man and the X-Men: Arcade’s Revenge or the hours I spent with friends at Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for Dreamcast (in a steady rotation with Power Stone and Smash Bros. Melee), or even getting a more technologically inclined friend to rip the soundtrack out of the PSX Fantastic Four game that I was one of seven people who played and burn it to a CDR for me because I just couldn’t believe how odd it was.
So check it out, and if you’ve got a favorite Marvel Team-Up from the world of video games, let ’em know. Especially if you can confirm that Spider-Man: Friend or Foe is as bad as I’ve heard.
