Lol all that tat you get with the "Earth’s Mightiest Edition" looks like the crap you used to get out of loot crates and i'm pretty sure some of it actually is especially the Thor's hammer key chain. :messenger_grinning_smiling:

That Cap, i still don’t get used to him. I wanna see more of this game and see if it looks any better gameplay-wise.

Aside from Cyberpunk 2077 this is the game I'm looking forward to most this year. It just looks like it's gonna be fun to play.

I'd have preferred a statue of a different character but I guess Cap is the most iconic one.

The game seems confusing and unfocused..

The pre-order skus are a bit of a mess..

The game as a service model almost never works out.

And more than likely it will not be a objectively "good" game...

So for those reasons.... I'M IN, sign me up.

Sorry been a big MCU fan I just can't walk... Unlike Captain America 😭

I keep wavering between expecting this to be awesome or awful. I’m playing Day One, regardless, but I just don’t know what to expect.

The pretty big positive for me at least is I loved the Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider reboot. I try to always give the benefit of the doubt when the past output is good. It feels like they have earned our trust.

I find the characters so ugly and unispired. Not the mighty superheroes that I would expect from an Avengers game.

It's the art direction which makes every character look weird, I know we're so accustomed to seeing MCU actors play these characters but there is uncanny valley vibe with almost all the faces. They don't look like they've been modeled after humans. Gameplay doesn't look too hot either.

Hopefully a Doctor Strange game from Remedy somehow comes to fruition, if not we'll have to make do with Spider-Man 2 I guess.

Exactly. Nobody had a problem with PS4 Spider-Man not looking like movie Spider-Man at all, because it was a cool looking character. These guys look like a Chinese Avengers knock-off.

I want to be into this game but there is just something with the way the characters look that's turning me off. Why couldn't they use the movie likenesses?

Everyone will play this. It's just a question of whether they'll play it day one, or in a year when it's $15. But you'll still play it.

I think I'm going to wait for the $15. But it'll be a fun time at that price.

I'm super excited to see more of this game. Looks like it has a lot of fun potential. I'd love to see cross-play support, especially considering it's co-op.

They're still pushing that Muslim chick comic fans don't care about, eh?

72 hours early access.......
Wow
Have you slept through last year? ;) Early access in exchange for paying more money has (unfortunately) become a popular thing among bigger releases.

Yeah I know, it's bloody terrible. Makes me want to support the game less.
