YMMV: Deadpool

The Stuff Dealing with My Comics

The Stuff Dealing with My AWESOME Video Game

  • Awesome Music: My lovely lady Death's little number is quite a soothing hit. She's definitely got a nice voice. And a nice everything else, if you know what I mean.
    • Don't forget my ending credits song!
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: I make my own! Don't tell me you're honestly surprised when my final moments with Death are suddenly in Film Noir style. Or that I cuss out my own voice actor. Or that party that was possibly all just in my head. Dammit, High Moon!
    • And then there's Taco!Cable.
  • Critical Dissonance: Those asshole critics didn't like my game much, but it was much better received by the players out there. At least some people have good taste.
  • Ending Fatigue: invoked Look, I get that I'm awesome, and I get that you want me to kill guys all day for your amusement, and I get that Sinister totally deserves it. But really, did he have to throw ALL THOSE CLONES at me at the end? I was getting tired!
    Me: Whew! That was a whole lot of omigod here come more of them.
    Me Again: What, did Sinister get these guys in bulk?
  • Evil Is Sexy: Vertigo and Arclight.
  • Fetish Fuel: You know it, baby. Every luscious lady in the game is a sight for your poor and sore eyes. I'll even give Vertigo a pity vote. You know, when she wasn't making me puke...with rage at how lame her superpower is.
  • Funny Moments: Every ounce of my awesome game is graced with my award-winning wit as it is with the blood of slain mooks.
  • Goddamn Bats: Those Gambit clones were a real pain in my ass.
  • Ho Yay: There's this little gem when my upper half falls atop one of Sinister's mooks.
    Yellow Box: There's a dude inside us!
    Me: Yeah, and not in the fun way.
    • When the big-breasted fangirl turns out to be Cable, I have the option of squeezing his chest. He punches me right in the face for that... Okay, I admit, I kinda deserved that.
    • Everybody else gets expositional cutscenes to introduce their characters. Cable gets a badass rap song about how awesome he is. I might tease him all the time and ignore his monologues, but I do think he's a pretty cool guy...just don't tell him I said that.
  • It's Easy, so It Sucks: IT DOES NOT SUCK! But yeah, aside from fighting the same sets of enemies for most of the game from start to finish, the game is a bit too generous with health ammo pick-ups, even on the higher settings, with every other enemy dropping them means you easily recover health quickly even in huge crowds and can be as trigger happy as you like with any of the guns without worry about running out of ammo.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Everyone else tells me that Sinister crossed this with his plot to eradicate the world, or something. But I know he really crossed it when he stole my contract!
  • Nausea Fuel: Okay, I admit it. Maybe I did go a little too far with taking a dump in my own toilet. But hey, it's what you made me do. Also, cutting and trying to climb your own intestines is as painful as it is gross to look at.
  • So Okay, It's Average: While everyone loves the humor of my game, the gameplay is regarded as this, since you mostly fight the same enemies for most of it and the combat is mostly just having me charge into melee, except the end of it. Also, it doesn't help that it's really short.
  • That One Boss: That fight at the end of the game, Sinister throws an army of the generic enemies, about a half dozen of each of the stronger enemies, all three of the previous bosses, and then ends it by sending out waves of clones of himself at the end, meaning rather than a Final Boss, I fight a dozen Final Bosses In Mooks Clothing.
  • Uncanny Valley: Cable as a floating taco that talks. But hey, I'll give the man credit for actually giving me a reason to stop Sinister's plan. Well, aside from him stealing my contract.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Didactic?: This classy gent argued in his video that my game is a parody of Macho, Testosterone Poisoned, chauvinistic meathead protagonists in certain games (kinda like that blonde dude and guys like him), like how some dumb shooter is apparently a Deconstruction of some overblown shooter franchise.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: HEY!! Just because the game has a point where I see Cable as a talking taco and has a segment when I'm on a carnival ride shooting at targets with a cannon that shoots beach balls in a segment that's supposed to be about released souls doesn't mean I was on drugs when I wrote it.
