If anyone knows the comics let’s hope Wolverine doesn’t have to deal with Mysterio.

Care to elaborate? What happened between Mysterio and Wolverine?

That part of the game was brutal. I felt literally sick for an hour after playing that. What a great game

This is a great sign. Really hope we get a dark, nuanced Wolverine story

ID: hhs41p1

Yes please

Gameplay has to be solid though, too. I'm all for good stories but when the gameplay feels like that Avengers game as an example, it's probably gonna make people speedrun through just for the story. I'd like maybe something close to Arkham Knight, just gameplay that's addictive because it feels good and you feel like Wolverine if that makes sense.

ID: hhspaut

The combat and gameplay in Miles Morales is very Arkham-esque, so I really think Insomniac will pull this off.

ID: hht5o40

Honestly I'd be happy if they even just aped the gameplay from.the X-Men origins Wolverine game, the gameplay for that was God tier

ID: hhsuni1

It’s Insomniac, the gameplay will live up to expectations.

ID: hhth2ur

It’s Insomniac… literally no reason to be concerned.

But I did wanna say I agree with Arkham Knight having addictive af gameplay, I still play to this day just to run AR challenges that I’ve already done dozens of times… ridiculously satisfying combat

Man, that's exciting. Spec Ops's writing was indeed excellent for its time.

ID: hhrybjy

I somehow managed to have never heard of it, then got it in some bundle on Steam and just walked into it with no expactations. Spec Ops - The Line was a wild ride.

ID: hhsxs5e

Yeah I was like "I need to turn my mind off with a single player fps and this looks fine"

Consequences were never the same

Gentlemen, welcome to Dubai.

ID: hhsjk4h

I’d agree. Strangely it was one of the best games of its time for me. Kind of a sleeper hit. Glad I had the opportunity to play it.

ID: hht7z1r

Same. The story was solid and the gunplay was enjoyable. Really glad I did too. Ending was a trip from what I remember

Damn, they got Joseph Conrad to write a new video game?

ID: hhrrkfa

Considering Wolverine has been alive for like 2 centuries, they could actually do a Heart of Darkness adaptation with him in it during any of the time periods that Heart of Darkness has been adapted into lol

ID: hhsmucf

Holy shit, I want this.

The work ethic on this guy is just astounding!

Spec Ops needs a remaster.

More people need to play such a fantastic game.

10 : Anonymous2021/10/23 17:18 ID: hhrdjxv

Cool - but remember that was also an adaptation and I believe the way the game was presented far outweighs the writing.

Im not getting fooled for this same headline again. THATS EXACTLY HOW THEY PROMOTED BATTLEFRONT 2 STORY.

I loved spec ops on my ps3, truly a gem and i 100% know its the only good story that author will ever make, all those disney/marvel/esrb restrictions will always cripple creativity freedom for anything they wanna do with the charcters of the wolverine game.

ID: hhrgdlh

I knew this headline sounded farmiliar

ID: hhrfc5q

Well it is insomniac games and their previous works with a marvel property are pretty fantastic.

ID: hhs5wws

Someone didn’t play the M-rated (and very fun) X-Men Origins: Wolverine game, I take it?

ID: hhs5711

Battlefront 2 was 1000000% rewritten to make the protagonist defect instead of portraying an honest viewpoint of the empire. There are blatant pieces of evidence of that throughout the marketing and the game itself

13 : Anonymous2021/10/23 20:14 ID: hhs1bui

I don't care who it's written by, it's being developed by Insomniac, that alone means it's gonna be at least a 9/10.

14 : Anonymous2021/10/24 00:54 ID: hht1k5z

I hope this game is rated M. Wolverine isn’t Wolverine if it isn’t M/R rated.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/23 17:32 ID: hhrfgfg

yea and he also wrote the shallow ass battlefront 2 and squadrons campaigns

walt williams is a top notch writer, but hes had two giant MEHS since Spec Ops, a game that slid out almost ten years ago.

ID: hhrkdg5

Writing for an entry in a big tent pole franchise is gonna probably stymie creativity because of bureaucracy. Good thing Wolverine isn’t a part of a big franchise!

ID: hhrs7af

Both of those were multiplayer focused games that had singleplayer campaigns pretty obviously tacked on. That and the Star Wars license is notoriously restrictive. You can be the best writer in the world and still turn out a crappy story if you aren't given enough freedom to do what you want with it.

ID: hhs97i0

This is how it's gonna be for the next two years. We all love Marvel, we all love Wolverine and we all love Playstation. Now, every little detail, director, writer, character, feature etc. will be praised to the heavens. "Did you know that the director of Wolverine cured cancer?"

So buckle up kids, it's gonna be a long one.

ID: hhriprx

Squadrons wasn’t as horrible as Battlefront 2, at least.

16 : Anonymous2021/10/23 17:54 ID: hhrifba

Was Spec Ops the one in Saudi Arabia or a country like that in the future and it's all buried in sand? That was a pretty cool game. Mostly for the story too so this news bodes well.
