Does Marvel need to keep labelling everything Ultimate?
A buddy of mine who isn't that familiar with comics asked me why almost all the new Marvel games kept sticking Ultimate in the title. I told him about the Ultimate line of comics, but then mentioned that the video games weren't really using those characters, but some kind of merger of the originals with the Ultimates. "So why bother calling them Ultimate then?" he asked "Just call it Marvel."
Does anybody really think labelling their games as Ultimate this and Ultimate that really makes anyone want to pick up these games more? The only people who care about these kind of distinctions are the same people who would realise that these aren't the Ultimate versions anyway.
More or less. I doubt they're marketing these games solely to comics fans anyway, and I'd wager half of the buying public wouldn't know squat about "Ultimate" vs. normal Marvel U. They just say, "Oh hey! This game has Spider-Man AND Wolverine in it! That might be cool."
Ultimate SPider Man: Literaly based on the Ultimate Line.
Ultimate Destruction; Yes, Sieerra admits they went for "Ultimates' Hulk here, jus tmake him less of a crazy bastard, and a bette ruse of the Abonimation then the actual comic book.
Ultimate Alliance: Well as you know SHield is a bigger playe rin Ultimates world as they ar eleade rof "GOod guys' AN dI think they call it ultimate ALlaince, cause it's a big ass cast of chars (FF, X Men, Avengers, others.)
Funny note: X Mne Legends 2 is prett ymuch a fsion of 616/Ultiamtes, same as UA, an dwel in Legends2, Nick Fury was BLack, in this he is white.
Wolverine; How da hlel the you alter youe ethicity bub!?
