Future of X-Men Legends:

Anha qoy zhavvorsi.
I'm a pretty hardcore X-Men fan and an avid RPG player, so X-Men Legends (and eventually Marvel Ultimate Alliance) was pretty much a godsend for me. I've played all four of these games, with the first X-Men Legends and the original Marvel Ultimate Alliance being my favorites. Obviously MUA has eclipsed Legends in terms of popularity, but anyone wonder if there's hope for another X-Men Legends in the future?

It's possible. X-Men Legends as a series has been sort of replaced with Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, but that doesn't mean they won't eventually do something more specific.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 didn't live up to expectations of the previous games since it dumbed down the RPG elements, had a smaller roster (although it had some more obscure fan favorites), and Activision was annoying with the downloadable content. I'm hoping that if there's a third Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, the RPG elements established by the first games won't be watered down.

I was kinda of hoping there would be an X-men Legends 3.

Same here. It looks like we're getting a new X-Men RPG, but it might not be a continuation of Legends.

At this point it doesn't matter as long as it's closer to XML 2 than any other part of the series - with proper equipment management, wide character power development options and whatnot, not idiotically simple "yay, a level up, you can now shoot one more blaster bolt!" MUA 2 had. I didn't have a chance to play XML 1 though, it was never released on a platform I ever owned.

I wouldn't mind less equipment, honestly. The further they get from Baldur's Gate, the better. Enchanted weapons, healing potions, and magic meters really highlight the fact that they more or less lifted Baldur Gate's gameplay wholesale.

They've made a lot of progress towards coming into their own, and I'd like to see more of that. More varied and more individual powers is the biggest thing, for me; I would really like it if half the character powers didn't just feel like different flavors of Magic Missile.

Ive been playing MUA 2 a lot recently and I think for the next X-Men Legends or Ultimate Alliance game, it should be a combination of MUA 1 and 2. Keep the updated and awesome looking costume designs, the branching conversations with three different options, and the fusion powers, but bring back major RPG elements, the multiple alternate costumes, and the roster size. I also liked the might and acrobatics minigames, so those would be a welcome addition.

It should include Galactus' revenge, which was Hand Waved away by Thor in the 2nd game.
[up][up] Correction: you mean they lifted gameplay from a bastardized Diablo clone console title that has nothing in common, by any stretch of the imagination, with Baldur's Gate.

[up][up]Don't forget to clarify that you played the next-gen version of MUA 2. I only got to play the watered-down beat-em-up with next to zero RPG elements (including not having a dialogue system at all) that the old-gen version was.

[up] the Wii version was just like that, and made me so unsatisfied it became one of the reasons I bought a PS3.

Yup, the Wii version was also broken down by the idiotic adaptation of the Fusion X-Tremes to the Wii Mote that made them effectively useless. At least the PSP version had marginally comfortable controls to play through it once and then spend the rest of the time ripping resources of new entities to re-import them into MUA 1 as mods.

I personally like MUA 1 the most, followed by Legends. I didn't like XML 2 that much honestly and MUA 2 was lacking.

X-Men Legends 2 I liked better I just wished you could play as more brotherhood members and does anybody thinks that the new x-men game will be any good or even better than legends?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
