Deadpool Election Day Image Makes Birther Joke
High Moon Studios has decided that Election Day is a good time to remind everyone of their Deadpool video game. They've sent out a teaser image with a render of the Merc with a Mouth.
Deadpool is originally a character from Marvel comic books. He's a mercenary who, like Wolverine, can recover from injuries at a superhuman rate. He's also an expert at hand-to-hand combat, marksmanship and sword-fighting. He sounds like the perfect soldier, except for one detail: he's a bit touched in the head.
He's not the most well-known Marvel character out there but he's developed quite a following due to his smart-aleck, fourth-wall-breaking ways. He may become a household name if that movie ever comes together. Should the film come to pass, this game might suddenly become a very high-profile project.
Deadpool's game will be a third-person action experience. Players will defeat foes with a mixture of ranged and melee attacks. In the process, they'll rub elbows with several other Marvel characters including Psylocke and Domino.
As the teaser image indicates, Deadpool will arrive sometime in 2013. High Moon is developing the game for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
