Loved all of the Capcom fighters but I’m partial to X-Men vs. Street Fighter since it was the first of it’s kind, the first true fighting game crossover. It even made the Guiness Book of World Records, MVC2 also.
Capcom’s side scroller X-Men Mutant Apocalypse was pretty dope! Very true to X-Men 1-3 (90s) and Fatal Attractions.
The worst Marvel game has to be Spider-Man and the X-Men. Man it’s so bad it’s hilarious. I can still remember the crappy music, so bad you can’t forget it! And LOL at the moment you find out that the boss Wolverine fights is supposed to be Apocalypse when he looks like and someone had the bright idea of making Spider-Man fight Nastir’h alone, even if he was just a Murderworld robot, looooord… :lol:
The arcade games! The X-Men one based on that Pryde of the X-Men episode was hot! Remember the Avengers arcade game where you could control 4 characters? Or the Spider-Man arcade game with 4 players where you could control Spider-Man, Black Cat, Hawkeye and someone else, I think Sub-Mariner? Man Venom turned into a huge GIANT in that game.
I enjoyed the first Spider-Man game Activision did, a really early one that was largely based on the 90s carttoon. The final boss was Doctor Octopus wearing the Carnage symbiote. LOL at Daredevil being invited to Marvel’s Annual Poker game. And the reggae mix of Spidey’s 60s cartoon song at the end - “Him a man him a man him a Spider-Man him a do whatever a Spider can!”
Marvel Ultimate Alliance is really cool. Playing Pitfall with Deadpool, Spider-Man, or whoever else is a serious trip. Deadpool was really funny in the game too. :woot:
Aside from Marvel, Capcom’s Spawn in the Demon’s Hand and Heavy Metal Geomatrix are some really cool gems for Dreamcast owners. :tup:
I wish DC had some better video games. I remember the first Batman side scroller, damn it was freaking hard and the last level involved a lot of IMPOSSIBLE jumps! The game was based on the first Tim Burton movie yet it was all about Batman fighting robots until he met the Joker at the end! Like, what movie did they watch? :looney: Still, the music was excellent! :rock:
Prior to that, I have fond memories of a Superman arcade that was two players. One Superman was regular Superman, the other guy was a red Superman. We all called him Shazaam even if he wasn’t Shazaam. I think this is the first pallette swap ever.
Recent DC games like Teen Titans and Justice League Heroes are okay at best but fall a bit short of being great games. However when the Lego Batman game comes out I think that will be DC’s first great video game. :rock:
Oh yeah, about the new Hulk video game - There’s an SRKer working on that game. I forget who exactly though, I’ll look it up when I get a chance. :karate:
