When I first heard word of a Deadpool video game on the way, I was salivating. The teaser trailer for the game just made it’s debut online and it is truly spectacular. From the trailer you can tell that the people at High Noon Studios get Deadpool from the start. Considering their work on the Transformers: War for Cybertron and upcoming Fall of Cybertron game I get the feeling that this game should live up to all our expectations.

Deadpool gives us another reason to look forward to 2013. With the promise of this trailer and the pedigree of the company, hopes will be high. I know in my case I’m a fan of the character and I already know I have a pre-order set in stone for this one. I know more information will be on the way in the months to come, but really in my case I can’t help but be excited.
