What the reviews can't agree on, however, is how good the rest of the game is. High Moon Studios' third-person action game, you see, has its fair share of problems.
My initial foray into the world of High Moon Studios' Deadpool video game culminated in an intimate moment in the eponymous character's filthy bathroom. Pants around his hideously-scarred ankles, our hero strains. "It's burns!" he cries, and it does — but it also feels kind of good.
Activision has announced that Deadpool, High Moon Studios' third-person action game starring Marvel's quirkiest fourth wall-breaking anti-hero, will be released for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in North America on June 25.
Most of the folks on the Deadpool team at Activision-owned High Moon Studios were let go today, having completed their developmental task. Activision tells Kotaku that around 40 employees have been impacted globally.
Deadpool is my second-favorite Marvel Comics character. Seeing him come to life (courtesy of IGN) at the hands of the studio that brought me two stellar Transformers games should be a dream come true, but the more I see of the Deadpool game the more I realize the character I fell in love with back in 1997 has…
The recent introduction of the Dinobots to Transformers: Fall of Cybertron's multiplayer seems to have been a rousing success. Now comes the time of the Insecticons.
The single-player portion of the PC version of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is pretty great, capturing all of the action and adventure of the console versions aptly. The online multiplayer, on the other hand, isn't so hot. High Moon and friends are working to make it better.
What's the most power combiner team in the Transformers universe? The fierce and relentless Predaking? The cool and calculating Computron? The eagle-elephant-lion Magnaboss? As far as Fall of Cybertron is concerned, it's Reviewertron, guardian of Metacritic.
When the end credits rolled for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron I was pretty sure High Moon Studios was actively engaging in fan trolling. Specifically fans of Stan Bush's Transformers the Movie anthem, "The Touch".
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron tells the story of the last days of a dying planet. It's the tale of two warring factions reaching out across the cosmos for the sake of survival. To fans of the franchise, this is a historical account of a fixed point in time, the outcome of which is predetermined.
The official launch trailer for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron signals the end of the planet of the robots, at least for a few million years, depending on the continuity you follow.
Matt Tieger is the game director on the next Transformers game. That's probably a fun job, but let's not assume anything. How about you ask him yourself?
Let's see: Voices in his head? Crude humor? Breaking the fourth wall? Swearing? High Moon and Activision are sending a very strong message that the Deadpool video game, just announced at San Diego Comic-Con, has everything a fan of the character will want. Really, though, is that Nolan North voicing Deadpool?
I mean, look, that's a clock, it's gonna hit zero at 6 p.m. EDT. The URL is "deadpoolgame.com," and the background is the titular antihero from the Marvel universe. High Moon Studios, which has handled three Transformers games for Activision, is listed along with the publisher, and Marvel. There's a Deadpool game…
Transformers is not just about giant robots shooting other giant robots. It's about giant robots shooting other giant robots with character. During a presentation of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron last week, High Moon Studios showed me a fast-paced action game filled with rich characters that never came across as…
Earlier this year High Moon Studio's game director Matt Tieger told me his team couldn't handle making a PC version of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, and PC gamers were a little upset. High Moon still can't handle creating a PC version, but High Moon Studios and developer Mercenary Games working together are getting…
In the original Transformers cartoon, Grimlock and the Dinobots are created by Wheeljack and Ratchet after volcanic activity unearthed prehistoric fossils near the Autobot base. High Moon Studios' explanation for the Dinobots appearance in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron makes a whole lot more sense.
While I loved Transformers: War for Cybertron, at the end of the day I realize it wasn't much more than a cover-based shooter with robots. High Moon Studios is taking steps to make sure Fall of Cybertron is much more than that.
In the next major Transformers video game, you will be able to issue orders to a massive, rampaging Metroplex.
Only four of the sexy robot designs from Transformers: War for Cybertron ever made it toy store shelves, a tragic missed opportunity. To ensure they don't miss a second time, Hasbro and High Moon Studios are planning a much bigger toy line for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
