Wow. On the day that Activision announced the inclusion of Jean Grey and Gambit in the upcoming Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 video game, they also released screenshots of the most amazing looking Iron Fist and Deadpool that a joystick has ever controlled.
Certain things fill me with such exquisite bliss that I cannot help but burst with gratitude for the chance to be a human being.
Okami is one of those things.
Widely regarded as the greatest single video game ever created for the Playstation 2, this incomparable Capcom masterpiece also inspired a deviant art contest last year.
Expect much more Okami on these pages in the coming weeks. For now I leave you with my favorite fan-based interpretations. Bloom the world around you.
That Mysterio is by kevtoons, but today I want to talk about Marvel Ultimate Alliance combined with Vs. System.
Both games give a MASSIVE survey of the Marvel Universe. I am halfway through the Playstation 2 masterpiece, and I cannot believe the depth of mythological coverage. Then I combo the video game with the full run of Vs. System cards and my mind is completely blown. Especially by the Arcade/Mysterio stuff.
Gotta love that Etna from Disgaea. Especially when sketched by Matt Bozon. This girl’s groovy game could last forever, especially since she is about to appear in the new Cross Edge RPG for Playstation 3. Screenshot to the face!
You know the drill. I am collecting some of the best Vs. System paintings here on the blog for posterity. That first one might ring a bell, from the Full Body Transplant header.
Then we move to the only appearance of Calypso in the history of the game. Reminds me of the voodoo that we do, how about you?
And, just in case those are a bit heavy. We leave you with one of the purest sources of happiness in Vs. System history. This card was, and always will be, good clean fun. Natch.
We will keep sharing the old image files until they are all gone. Meet me back here next Monday for more!
That’s the thing I most look forward to, now that I am in possession of a copy of Marvel Ultimate Alliance.
What else should I expect?
Now THAT is the way to drink blood. Jose G. has hooked us up, not only with the proper way to dress our dapper undead Jedah, but with a new keyword.
Darkness means: Free -> Move this character to your hidden or visible area. Use only once per turn and only during the combat phase.
I don’t know about you, but I am mad for the alternate win conditions. Especially when they key on counters. Sink your teeth into the rest of the Jedah legend suite. I’m turning into a bat and flying away until next time, grooving on my favorite background in the video game turned into a Vs. System location.
