Psylocke DLC for MUA2 on Xbox 360

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC – Carnage

MUA2 DLC  – Carnage Gameplay

Second-rate symbiote Carnage is the first DLC (excluding Juggernaut) for Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Based on the video above, he plays a lot like swift Spider-man with a few Wolverine/Venom tactics thrown in. I’m not a fan of Carnage but having his available for download does make me want to replay the game.

Information on Carnage

Cletus Kasady has a troubled childhood, killing his grandmother by pushing her down a flight of stairs, and torturing his mother’s dog who afterwards tries to kill him and is apparently beaten to the brink of death by his father, who receives no defense from Kasady during his trial. As an orphan, Kasady is sent to the St. Estes Home for Boys, where his antisocial behavior makes him the target of abuse from both the other orphans and the staff. Kasady gains revenge by murdering the disciplinarian administrator, pushing a girl who refused a date with him in front of a moving bus, and burning down the orphanage.

Kasady becomes a serial killer. He is captured and sent to Ryker’s Island prison where he shares a cell with Eddie Brock, who had lost his alien symbiote. Brock’s symbiote soon returns and bonds with him again, and unwittingly leaves behind the symbiote’s offspring (the symbiotes reproduce asexually, once per generation; the children are then of no consequence to the parent, so the Venom symbiote felt no need to inform Brock of the existence of the new symbiote) which gets into a cut and bonds with Kasady’s bloodstream, transforming him into Carnage.He escapes prison, and begins a series of murders, and at the scene of each crime, writes “Carnage Rules” on the walls with his own blood. He is found by Spider-Man, though the hero proves to be no match for Carnage’s powers. In desperation, Spider-Man makes a truce with Venom to fight Carnage. Carnage is defeated with sonic weaponry, but the symbiote lives on because he is merged with Kasady’s bloodstream.

Carnage goes on to recruit an army of psychopathic supervillains including Shriek, Demogoblin, Carrion, and Doppelganger to overtake New York City. They are driven back by Spider-Man, Venom, and a number of other superheroes.

Aside from Cletus Kasady, the Carnage symbiote bonds with Ben Reilly, creating Spider-Carnage, and later the Silver Surfer.

Venom eventually reabsorbs the Carnage symbiote into his own body “for good.” Without the symbiote, Kasady retains the Carnage persona by costuming himself in red paint and continuing his killing sprees, but does so as a normal human, only for Spider-Man to easily defeat him in a fight. Kasady finds a replica of the Carnage symbiote in the Negative Zone.

The Carnage symbiote later spawns a “child” symbiote, named Toxin. Carnage is one of several supervillains trying to escape from The Raft. Sentry finishes him off, flying Carnage outside the Earth’s atmosphere and ripping him apart. According to Iron Man’s computer, Kasady may not have been inside the symbiote when the Sentry ripped it apart.

RoboFury – Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2’s Secret Character

All Your Base Are Belong to RoboFury.

RoboFury: All Your Base Are Belong to Us

Sorry not to use spoilers or whatever but I’m really pissed at some decisions the developers of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 have made. RoboFury (as the internet is referring to him) is on the top of my list.  How could they string us along for weeks about this secret character when it is the MUA version of Cyber-Akuma.

I do have to say this – RoboFury looks a lot like Cats (All Your Base Are Belong to Us). Everything from the tacky cybernetic eye patch to the smug attitude, it’s like RoboFury and Cats are long lost brothers. I can only hope the MUA2 scene where RoboFury shows up begins like Zero Wing with Captain America being the Captain and all the other roles going to the supporting cast (I imagine Spider-man as Operator and Ironman as Mechanic).

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2: First 8 Minutes of GamePlay

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 – Thor

In the first Marvel Ultimate Alliance, I found myself really hating all of Thor’s other costumes with the exception of the Ultimates default.  But I’m really looking forward to the sequel because not only do I get another comic book game that doesn’t completely suck (hopefully) but I also get to play as Thor in his Oliver Coipel designed costume.

While this shouldn’t be the main reason a person buys a $60.00 video game (and it isn’t Luke Cage, hello?), but seeing that it was the alternate costume for Thor made me pre-order (yah I get Big Ol’ Juggs too!).  While I know this is going to be the whole “Whose Side Are You On” thing but I’d really like to see a Thor vs  Red Hulk scene at some point in the game. I feel Thor deserves that much after Loeb made him get pwned by Rulk. I am a little annoyed that “Thor” is on the Pro-Reg side though. I don’t know how other people feel but to me that means he’s that racist ass clone, Clor. This is especially annoying for me because we all know the real Thor is down for the swirl.

The developers can make up for this by making Ares and the Young Avengers DLC . That would be amazing for me. Having Thor and Ares in this game together would just make me lose my shit. I mean I know they have to put in character like Songbird and Iron Fist (even he could have easily been DLC instead. Who the fuck cares about Iron Fist anyway?) but why did they include Phoenix?  She was dead during the storyline and how are her powers different than Invisible Woman’s (though does Ares = Wolverine+Thor)?

Oh speaking of DLC, how shitty is it that there is not a PC version (even though I have no interest in a PC version). I bet this was because of all the content created by fans over at MarvelMods for all the other games. Marvel has a long history of hating on its fan for just rejected Marvel’s reality and substituted their own. But now they are going to make use start paying for our own.

Either way the game comes out in 16 days and I’m pretty damn exciting about getting my copy. It might even pull me away from Marvel vs Capcom 2 for a little while.
