As if you needed another reason to pick up your controllers and jam on some "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2" again, a slew of new characters and sim missions are on their way to Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers. We'll have weekly spotlights on each character and we're kicking things off with Carnage!

Chris Baker, Manager, Licensed Games at Marvel:

"Carnage wasn't exactly an obvious choice for a game revolving around the Civil War storyline, but when Activision asked the fans who they wanted to see in DLC, he proved to be one of the most popular choices, hands down. And now that I've had the chance to play as him, I think he's going to become a quick favorite. I'd have to say that he's got one of 'MUA2''s most interesting variety of moves, from throwing axes and shooting spikes out of his body to that really freaky leap forward he has that makes his face delightfully huge.

Carnage in "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2"

"After years of fighting Carnage in Spider-Man games, it's a nice change of pace to finally get the chance to go all homicidal as him myself. It was actually the game 'Maximum Carnage' on the Genesis that made me a fan of the character to begin with, and even though Sentry tore Mr. Kasady to shreds in outer space awhile back in the comics, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he gains a bit of a resurgence in popularity due to his awesomeness as part of this DLC."

 

Look for more "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2" DLC news in the coming weeks!

      I don't know why I'm dignifying this thread with a serious post, but...Nintendo and the internet don't really get along. They have NEVER been on the same level as the others when it comes to using the internet for gaming, and don't seem to be showing any plans to.Also, not saying the Wii is bad, but it's not really a comparable system to the PS3 or 360. It's not better or worse, it's totally different. It doesn't have the same focus as the other systems at all, and it generally shouldn't be considered to be a similar console (at least, I don't think so). It's an interesting system, with lots of cool exclusives, but if you're looking for the types of games that are available on the PS3 or 360... you're far better off just going with one of those systems.

I might have the system, but I don't have the requirements. Life sucks sometimes eh?[/quote] In that case, since you can't use it, could I have it???????[/quote] Maybe, it depends, unless someone else wants it.

      [quote@UnicornLord now if only they release nova, cyclops, the sentry, magneto, doctor strange, cable, and super skrull.[/quote] Agreed 100% those are characters would be amazing as DLC.. in fact I would like to see an Annihilation add-on all together with more cosmic characters like Ronan the Accuser, Drax, Quasar, maybe even Thanos and Groot would be awesome.

Ok, so, tell me, why PS3 is the best? Or why X-Box is great? You told that "they're cool 'cause MUA, GTA" and the same stuff. So that's true - they are always getting frika exclusive content and exclusive games (and the most awful gameplay, however). 'Cause they are not much better than PS or PS2. Yeah, graphics that they are showing us is great, but that's all.So those developers are getting money by making exclusive content for PS3 and X-Box. Stop asking stupid questions and answering them in your own messages, man, and watch your language.[/quote] first of all, your a huge **** for covering your swears with symbols and an idiot for even thinking the wii is anywhere as good in anyway towards the 360/PS3, secondly i own a wii and a xbox 360. i'll let you know that even without exclusive content or games the xbox is a much better console, reasons:- as you said the graphics are good (brilliant)- the controller is probably one of the most comfortable to hold of all time - games are generaly better on the console than the wii- Achievements to give more meaning to playing - The online system is legendaryreasons why the wii is worse- graphics are terrible, barley better than the gamecube- the controls are ****ing retarded and unresponsive- there is only one good game on wii that was worth buying and that is SSBB (the reason i bought one)- online is a horrible experience that lags like **** and isn't worth playingWatch what you say about gaming consoles when you obviously know nothing about them

      Another user suggested we needed Toxin as an added character as well. Are you kidding me? Venom and Carnage are 1 thing, but adding Toxin would be ridiculous. That's like adding Ares, Hercules, and Rage as characters. They have identical powers, what's the point of adding them in? Hawkeye (either Clint, or Bishop), Punisher, War Machine, Cyclops, or Cloak and Dagger would have been cool as DLC.

      [quote@Protonson What the hell?! I want to play as Carnage on my Wii, but those greedy Vicarious Visions guys need lots of money, so they're NOT INTERESTED to give us a chance to play as Kasady! PS3 and X-Box 360 are still living 'cause of those damned exclusives. Good graphics means nothing, gameplay - that is what really necessary in games today. So suck your money, guys. I wish You will have a lot of fun, while playing as Carnage.[/quote] Yeah blame them.....Not nintendo. Its not vicarouis visios fault, Nintendo just didnt pay to have Carnage. Besides the Wii barely has any online functions, its has 16 digit codes for every game for crying out loudResearch before you post

      [quote@gambitz1 It really does suck that ps2 and wii owners can't enjoy the downloads, i was pissed with mua when i couldn't get the hulk on ps2. Carnage sounds really good, i just hope they keep things fresh with lots of new missions and maybe fixing the online aspect by allowing players to join a game on the fly. And please make Juggernaut available to everyone not just being able to play with others who have him. :gambit:[/quote] I doubt we will see him on any of the consoles aside from 360/PS3, once again because the main production group only worked on the PS3/360 versions for the most part. Even then that may never happen, as the whole system for the Juggernaut character got fudged by Gamestop, who didn't have a way to determine which preorder-er should recieve which systems code. This lead to multiple codes being sent out to people, some received as many as 4, while a lot received 3 some only received 2 or less none of which matched their system, then the site they put out to get the correct code for the correct system allowed for the same receipt/email code to be entered in multiple times which lead to a shortage of codes for those who preordered (a holes would give their friends who didn't preorder their code to enter into the site and some people got left out despite following the rules laid out).Though with the screw up there's probably a good chance he will be made available as DLC even if there wasn't a plan to do so before hand, or if it was a later release.I wholeheartedly agree with the more missions thing too, I would like some more characters added, but would be happy with new missions, and new costumes (at least a Shield Out-fit for Fury, the fold suit looks messed up). And yeah at least the DLC isn't console exclusive this time

I wish You will have a lot of fun, while playing as Carnage.[/quote] The wii's graphic system for this game is vastly different from the one used in the XBOX 360 and PS3 versions, I imagine that is the main reason you dont see DLC for all the systems in all-console releases. You don't see PS2, PSP, or the DS getting DLC, and from the screen shots I've seen the Wii version of this game is a few steps above the PS2 version. Vicarious Visions was the producer of the PS3 and 360 versions only so anything they do will tailor to those systems. FYI the Wii which was done by a company called n-space in association with Activision and VV, and in doing that they created a different game. They have 26 characters (as opposed to the 24 playable characters at the launch of the 360/ps3 titles) additional missions and other things that will not be available on the other 2 consoles. The game is different in most aspects so it would make sense for them not to offer the same DLC.http://www.n-space.com/n_Space/MUA2_Diary.htmlthat is the developers "diary" on the game development. You have to realize that there are limitations to each console, and the Wii's limits often leads to a different game, in order to incorporate the wii's strengths. Though from the looks of the list they give it appears they have compensated for the lack of DLC by offering more at the launch.This last part is for that cheap shot you took at the other 2 consoles at the end of your postI don't play my PS2 anymore for a reason because of the graphics, the game-play was excellent for MUA but I couldn't play it through again once I saw the 360's graphic rendering of the same title. Now if you add the creativeness that the Wii brings i could sit through another lower-end graphics play-through (especially since this time its a different kind of play-through compared to the main version) but that's the only reason I would subject my eyes to those kind of graphics. My complaints about the 360 version aren't about the game-play but rather the simplification of the customization, I'll take great graphics and great game-play over great game-play and mediocre (to today's standards) graphics any day even with that added creativeness. Heck if i really want to play the wii I will go to one of my friends places and play it on there's after the dust it off from lack of use do to poor game selection. Its got its niche but it is in no way superior.

      Carnage FTW.Guys should stop complaining..I'm sure Sony and Microsoft make more money on their next gen consoles than the Wii does. So there for, they are going to get the "exclusives". I think they need to expand the game as a whole with new missions and stuff...maybe actually pertaining to the Civil War, like in the comics. (: :venom:

      [quote] Dude, I have PS3 too. The problem is that I don't know how to downloadit. And yeah, it is activision's fault because they should make it available for all consoles, because there are some people who don't have the PS3and XBox 360. [/quote] But they did this for MUA as well. Remember the hero/villain packs? They only made those available for the 360, so it's been done before. It's somewhat unrealistic to assume any of the other consoles besides those two will get downloadable content, though, as they aren't known (or probably even really designed for) that.And you can argue that the PSP has it's own store, as does the Wii, but I've VERY rarely heard about a game on either of those consoles getting downloadable content, besides downloading entire games.But I do agree with you: I owned the PS2 version of MUA and I was pissed I missed out on the hero/villain pack, as well as Moon Knight and Colossus. But this is the trend, and if people want to get these downloads, they're going to have go with the flashier systems, unfortunately.[/quote]
