I started playing Marvel's Future Fight (so you don't have to)
it's mostly okay. I'm finding out a lot about myself by what games actually catch my desire to play. I have never been much of a gamer, tending to get frustrated with levels cause I suck at video games, but I love the stories they can tell. I also love collecting things I love. This game touches on both, though I don't know much about the story cause the dialog doesn't do a whole lot for me. But I get to collect Marvel characters, so that appeals to me. Game play is pretty simple. It's kind of a fighting game, mostly against NPCs but there is a PVP arena.
Spoiler alert, i stay away from that unless I'm getting the daily bonus for dealing with it.
The UX isn't very user friendly, I think. It could be because I'm not used to complex games. There's also a lot you have to juggle to advance your character. There's rank, mastery of that rank, level, gear level, skill level, special gear, and something called ISO-8 which is supposed to give you boosts but I haven't played much with it cause you need to mix the types of ISO-8 right. Think Minecraft but not as much fun...I think?
I also can't help thinking the game is stacked so that male characters tend to be stronger than female. I don't have math to prove this, but it's a feeling. I could be very wrong about it.
Oh, and it is not designed for casual play...well it is, but they give you such an insane amount of energy that you could play for hours without running through it. I'm betting there's a tipping point where your player level out paces the energy refile vs advancement, but I haven't reached it yet.
They do have lots of characters. So far my main team is America Chavez, Sharon Rogers (the AU daughter of Peggy and Steve who's a paladin inspired by American Gladiator), and Natasha Romanoff. I am being stubborn and not getting male characters unless I need them for special missions, like requiring Reed Richards for the Fantastic Four mission or Wolverine (of course) for the X-Men mission.
I also have dreams of a Morgan Le Fay (whom I have), Sister Grimm, and Magik team. I have Nadia Van Dyne, Elsa Bloodstone, and a few others. I feel like Elsa and Natasha should be on a team, so maybe I should get Sharon Carter/Agent 13 to round them out. Gals-N-Guns? Of course, then I'll need another America themed gal for the main team.
I do wish they had Jessica Drew. They have Cindy Moon/Silk and Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman, so if/when they get Jess, I'll have to have my spider-ladies team.
And now I think I want to draw Magik as Sorcerer Supreme, ala What If? Magik
. I even have a SenshiStock photo to use as reference....just not sure if my drawing skills are up to it. And I'd have to design a costume, since she'd be older than in the comic, but it would be fun.
