NSFW WARNING: This issue of Comics on Consoles contains audio clips from a game rated M for Mature by the ESRB, which includes foul language.
It's February of 2016, which means that Marvel's Merc With a Mouth has burst onto the scene in movie theaters across the world. So, Comics on Consoles is celebrating by exploring his only solo video game adventure from 2013, High Moon Studios' Deadpool!
Released in 2013, Deadpool unleashed Wade Wilson into an uncensored adventure outside of the comics first, and is just as raunchy and vulgar as you've likely come to expect from the foul-mouthed mutate. Still, it likely has one of the most memorable and quirky personalities of any comics-based video game, which it earned through its script (written by longtime Deadpool comics writer Daniel Way), and its lead actor (Nolan North of Uncharted fame). Is personality enough to save a game that may not have gameplay mechanics to match its solid wit? Host Chris Clow explores the character, his comics, and the game from development to release (to re-release) in order to try and find an answer.
Plus, Chris announces the subject of issue #5...and it's going to be a doozy.
