June 25, 2013 is a day I fondly remember for a few reasons with the first being that I celebrated my 33rd birthday and the second being that Deadpool got his own game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. While it was an enjoyable game with loads of gratuitous violence we have to wonder why Activision would re-release the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One two years later but rather than hear it from a PR rep why not just hear it from the “Merc With A Mouth” himself.
AND NOW, A STATEMENT FROM DEADPOOL: “YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAH!”
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Sept. 1, 2015 – The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The original draft ofHamlet. Third-wave ska. All treasures of human vision and artistry lost to the unfathomable reaches of time. But sometimes, life, uh, finds a way. Deadpool, THE third-person action-shooter made by ME, DEADPOOL, and NOBODY ELSE, especially not anyone at Activision Publishing, Inc. or Marvel Entertainment (hey, what about ME?!) (oh, puhh-lezz!) is hitting the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One this fall.
Here’s your fact sheet: Deadpool is a deluxe combo platter drizzled with guns, katanas, guns and katanas, explosives, pancakes, sassy one-liners, mutant powers (like my turbo healing factor), babes and baddies. “Is there more, Deadpool?” YEA, PROBABLY.
Now because I’m an incredibly honest and forthright fellow, let me just tell you: these new versions ofDeadpool are not 100% perfect (of course they’re perfect. It’s Deadpool, dummy!) (No thing or person is perfect!). You see, in full-disclosure, somehow Wolverine is still in my video game. (See! I told you.) I just… ugh. But it does include all my original DLC, including two Challenge maps (“GRT Plaza” and “Inside the Tower”), as well as the form-fitting Uncanny X-Force and D-Pooly suits (I do loves me some form-fitting) for use in the never-ending thunderdome of carnage I call Infinite Mode.
I’m bringing it all to PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in North America on Nov. 17 for $49.99 as a digital and physical retail title – however you want me, baby! (Hee hee, you know you want me.) You better believe it’s rated M (Mature) by the ESRB, too. (YES!) (You, sir, are so NOT mature.) “But Deadpool, how can we engage with your personal brand in the meantime?” Worry not, my beloveds! You may follow me on that Facebook thingy at ‘RealDeadpool’ for all the shameless self-promotion you could ever wallow in.
Now for all the mandatory mumbo-jumbo from the corporate suits.
