I have MBr, ARMr, JP prem, AIQ LE and Deadpool prem. It’s a great balance of challenging and fun. JP and AIQ are challenging and can be work. I don’t know if it was the tweaking of the rule set, but AIQ out of the box I was putting up scores of ~600M and now I can’t break 250M. I play it often, but then usually immediately hit DP.
The Godzilla stream was awesome - the game looks great and that magnet newton ball thingy is really cool. But I need to watch more. I get the reason they chose the monotone radio announcer vibe for the callouts, and the videos during the gameplay were actually pretty funny, but as a player, probably because I’m not that great, I barely see the videos, so its all about the callouts to set the mood of the game. AIQ’s primary issue is that the tone is so serious, Thanos is a dick, and the game is hard, it can be brutal. Only the Hulk callouts are remotely funny. And then you have a good game, get three Gems and Thanos shows up and puts you through a 10 minute grind just to take the gems away from you and tell you that you suck. I prefer the movie code on JP, because it brings levity to what I find to be a hard game. Sam Neil ripping off his glasses when you drain at least takes a bit of the sting away. Any words spoken by Jeff Goldblum are funny.
DP always makes me laugh throughout the whole game, and especially when I drain, it makes me happy. “Must be hard, losin’ all the time!”. Followed by a custom made Deadpool song. The end of ball bonus effect on DP is one of the funniest and most satisfying things. Who else besides me, when you get a ~20M+ end of ball bonus on DP, dances around the room and ends with a hip thrust when the shaker goes off at the end?!? It’s just awesome. If I could only have one pin from my collection, I would choose Deadpool, hands down.
