    Are you limited to those three characters? Hulk is anA-lister but the other two  not so much.

    I think Cyclopes would be a cool character in VR. 
    There will apparently be four characters to start (the fourth hasn't been revealed yet) with more added over time.
    What are the bets that Ironman will be paid DLC. I'm calling it now.

    I don't know what their business model will be going forward, but if it's pay-to-play for all new content, that's going to dampen uptake significantly. (Didn't Disney do this with their Infinity game? Buy figurines to unlock new characters?)

    I am a bit concerned that it looks to be co-op.

    I am an unsociable pr1ck, with few friends and even fewer VR playing buddies. 

    Hopefully single player will be supported or I am also out. :/

    I'll pick it up for sure.  But I have loved Marvel for years, even before they saved Hollywoods ass since they became incapable of original content and resorted to nothing but reboots.  I don't like the Racoon character, looks blah.  Hulk looks awesome though.  This game seriously looks like a mod addition to Robo Recall that was re-skinned with Marvel IP and a free locomotion setup.  It looks like Robo Recall right down to the arcadey style pop ups that come up in the trailer.  I hope they add spiderman, Ironman, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Cyclops, Daredevil to name a few....

    Same here, no good SP system and I will give a pass as well.

    Correction!  According to Steve Arnold  (head of Oculus Studios):
    We’re starting with just a few characters right now, but by launch there will be over a dozen playable Marvel characters and even more team combinations.

    Here's the interview that quote comes from: https://news.marvel.com/games/68665/unleash-your-inner-super-hero-announcing-marvel-powers-united-vr-for-rift/

    "over a dozen" is a lot of playable characters, especially if they each have pretty distinct weapons and special abilities.  :yum:

    There will be at least 12 characters.

    I believe the correct phrasing is: geeky people are concerned about looking overly dorky

    Kinda like a shrimp wondering if its outfit makes it look too "small" :*

    Yall are kidding right I find myself pacing back and forth during loadtimes like a gladiator at the gate.
    I dodge dip duck dive and dodge during combat and its a workout and a hoot. ''I have foam padding on my playspace"
    Its also serious cardio.
    I smell the smoking guns in robo recall before throwing them at robots.

    Who cares how you look if you are having fun.
    The whole point of VR is immersion let yourself get into it.

    It looks pretty awesome to me, now that I know there will be 12 characters. The only character so far that I have any interest in is the Hulk. Hopefully they make a satisfying game and not just a quick short "experience".,

    UploadVR has 7 minutes of gameplay as Deadpool and it seems it will ship with 12 characters.  After watching the gameplay I am definitely in.  Hoping for more of a "story" or at least a progression but just being able to jump in as a hero with others seems fun.

    Cool, I guess Deadpool was the fourth (previously unannounced) character. That answers my question--I was wondering if this was going to be limited to MCU characters, or if Disney has video game rights to some of the others like X-men and F4 characters that they're still locked out of for movies. Thanks for the tip on the video, I'll watch it over lunch break shortly.

    Not too keen on DP voice (prefer the one in MVC3U or the DP Game but hey).What I do like is they are moving through areas rather than stuck in the one place. It's still a way of arena based combat but I'm in. Looks cool.

    He sounds pretty close to Ryan Reynolds from the movie, which is what I assume they were aiming for.

    I'm wondering if you have to pick what's left to choose from, or if you can pick any character regardless of what someone else picked.

    Having four Hulks rampaging through the game would be cool, while on the other hand getting stuck as the character nobody really wants to be would suck.

    Also, I just realized how cool being Ant-Man/Giant-Man in this game might be.

    I kinda get the Star Trek Bridge Crew vibe from those vids. Feels like you drop into a lobby and get a mission and then go. That's great... at first. Bridge crew got old real fast so I hope they have a way to keep things interesting for more than a few hours. Though at least you'll have 12 variations of characters to mess with so that will keep things interesting. ALthough, on Second Thought, Robo Recall can be beaten in a few hours I and I really enjoy just jumping in it and playing it from time to time because the combat is so fun. So yea, I'm pretty excited overall.

    I admire your commitment to sticking with the "wave shooter" assumption; however, at this stage we might as well accuse every VR Porn video every made to be "arena based combat" too :D

    Anyway, the gameplay footage looks amazing. I would call this more "instanced" based combat, like most RPG's these days.

    Edited for ya.

    Actually, I think wave based is perhaps not the correct term rather, area based or as you want to put it instanced. As mentioned, you clearly see them moving through the level in the video instead of staying put and holding ground a la Raw Data (wave based). So I stand corrected. That said, I still believe there is an element of boxing the players into zones rather than allowing full freedom of movement (arena based). But then again, if it did have a more open approach it would probably be the best VR game ever made so far.

    Whaaaaaaaat? Full locomotion (and teleportation) from day one release without tons of forum threads created to complain and cry during a month?!!??!? Thing move the good way, great! Thanks Devs! ;)

    Huh, that Deadpool gameplay vid kinda gave me the same vibes as one of Gearbox's shooters (minus all the loot) or a Left 4 Dead (minus players getting knocked down and needing rescuing every five seconds)

    That's a very good thing.  Hopefully they'll make sure there are enough badguys for everyone to see their share of action in full four-player games.. and hopefully they'll be very generous in the amount of separate levels they have available, since that's pretty key to the longevity of this sort of game.

    Seems a bit unpolished at the moment, but that of course is why it's releasing sometime next year and not this year, eh?

    Also: Glad to see that the Hulk can just pick dudes up by the head and throw them.   I can already see myself "passing" enemies to my teammates, or throwing them into the air while shouting "Pull!"

    Oh, and that end-of-mission group selfie thing?  Possibly the best feature revealed so far. :lol:

    I hope they improve on it A LOT.  They've got a while to go.  It looks to slow and too much like a 1st person version of a Marvel Beat 'em up arcade button masher from the 90s.  I have no idea how they can improve it, but I think it needs more speed.  They move too slow.  And do these FPS games with free locomotion have a strafe option?  FPS without strafe feels like a broken game to me.  I'm loving the IP for this project and I'm sure they'll make it awesome, but it looks to slow as it is for me.

    Know what feature lets players move super duper fast? Teleportation B)
