This morning during the Q4 conference call it was asked if Marvel had thought about going into the game market after the announcements of several companies dropping Marvel games (Microsoft’s Marvel MMO).  In a nutshell, Marvel did say it was not pursuing this venture at this time. However, knowing that Marvel also says they have no plans to reprint sold out issues, only to turn around a couple of weeks later, makes me wonder how long we will have to wait until the Marvel MMO game is resurrected by the company. Even with my speculation, I can understand why Marvel

I love playing World of Warcraft.  I just wish I had more time to play it.  MMORPG are really fun and so emersive that you can detach from the real world very easily.  While I never got into City of Heroes – the super hero online game, I was interested in checking out Marvel’s attempt to break into this particular game market. It’s too bad the game has been cancelled. Marvel Universe Online (the heavily anticipated MMO based on the Marvel comic book universe) is officially dead, according to Shane Kim, the Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Game Studios. Kim

I’ve got my fare share of DC and Marvel Heroclix figures cozied away in a secret room I have yet to reveal to the Major Spoiler masses. I haven’t picked up any in quite a while, mainly because the local store has stopped carrying the line, and I really don’t have anyone to play against. But I am super excited about the Starro Attacks Heroclix event featuring the new Justice League booster packs with several exclusive Starro related figures. Wizkids Games has sent us some high-res images of the figures including a huge Starro that should put that Sinestro figure
