Well from the few videos I have seen (galactus for example) it seems the camera really pans out far.

Hopefully picking up the PC version tomorrow so if any Bluesians want to for a little Blues People Group let me know

I call dibs on Spider-Man, I've got a ton of corny saying all lined up!

Hopefully not everyone needs to be on the screen at the same time, that made Legends a bitch to play multiplayer.

Yes, they had built-in game browser and direct tcp/ip as I recall.

Anyways the biggest worry I have is that, much like X-Men Legends, each hero will play almost exactly the same as all other heroes. There was very little difference between each of the Legends characters abilities and playstyles. They need to be much more defined and varied.

But was it playable over the internet on the PC version?

When Raven Ported XMen Legends 2 over to the PC, they didn't even include LAN support.

I guess I'd still rather have it for my 360. A lot of the fun of the X-Men Legends games was playing them co-op, something that's just a lot more enjoyable when I'm at my TV instead.

I certainly don't think it's a ripoff. Especially so, considering the issues that console to PC ports generally suffer.

Guess I'll pick this game up over the weekend. Should hold me over nicely until Christmas time since I can only put in limited time on my PC each week. I saw an interview with Stan Lee a few days ago and he gave very high praise to this game.

Only the X360 version is $20 more.

And in another month we'll be seeing $30 price differences between stuff released on the PC/PS3; that is assuming that PS3 games are selling for $70 (which I'm sure I've read, someone correct me if I'm wrong).

You fail reading comprehension. Only the X360 version is $20 more.

Figures, they did the same thing with Xmen 3.

Supply and Demand.

I have no interest in playing this game on my PC. But on my 360 I can't wait!
