Deadpool brings it all for the ‘Super Duper [email protected]%!#& Cut’
Not many people buy movies anymore. The die-hard collectors always will. The last DVD I purchased was Thor: Ragnarok, and that was only because I wanted the Team Darryl featurette that would never stream.
I’m going to say Ryan Reynolds and the guys at Fox recognise this. As such, the upcoming August release of Deadpool 2 includes a load of extras, including the extended ‘Super Duper [email protected]%!#& Cut’.
Included in the physical release:
- Gag Reel
- Deleted/Extended Scenes
- Until Your Face Hurts: Alt Takes
- Deadpool’s Lips are Sealed: Secrets and Easter Eggs
- The Most Important X-Force Member
- Deadpool Family Values: Cast of Characters
- David Leitch Not Lynch: Directing DP2
- Roll with the Punches: Action and Stunts
- The Deadpool Prison Experiment
- Chess with Omega Red
- Swole and Sexy
- “3-Minute Monologue”
- Audio Commentary by Ryan Reynolds, David Leitch, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Theatrical Version Only)
- Deadpool’s Fun Sack 2
- Stills (28 Images)
Of course, this couldn’t just be quietly released. Oh no, where is the fun in that?
Instead this appeared on Ryan Reynolds twitter account:
Nothing about this release on the JB Hi-Fi website yet, but I am sure it will be coming. The backlash would be too huge otherwise 🙂
Cthulhu: Death May Die ‘live’ on Kickstarter
The latest outing from CMON is now live on Kickstarter – Cthulhu: Death May Die.
A collaboration between two of my favourite designers Rob Daviau and Eric M. Lang, with a cooperative effort to end Cthulu. It all seemed right up my alley. Timing and a huge initial rush does mean I have missed every single early bird pledge, but that’s OK. It’s a CMON project – there is going to be a ton of plastic extras that don’t fit in the box and push shipping rates up anyway :p
Another usual problem I have with CMON projects is no rules. This looks great, but will it be fun to play?
The situation on this front seems to be improving though. This time around there is a gameplay walkthrough hosted by Eric M. Lang himself!
I have only mostly watched the video all the way through, and I will watch it another time or two, but the Cthulhu: Death May Die looks like it has a lot of potential.
But it is only potential, and as such I have 2 reservations.
- I have a lot of cooperative games already in the Cthulhu theme. While the comparison is unfair as they are very different games, Mansions of Madness: Second Edition already springs to mind as a fun mini-fest with expanding scenarios. And I have it on my shelf now.
- The cost. It’s CMON – there will be a lot of plastic. A lot. Oh, so much plastic. But the ‘All In’ pledge is 2.5x the base game, for what sounds like a Kickstarter Exclusive expansion with no information on.
The components look great, and Cthulhu: Death May Die has an interesting premise. But some CMON Kickstarters have the problem where the ‘stretch goal optional expansions’ were required to make the game fun to play, which pushes me to back the ‘R’yleh Rising’ All In pledge. At USD$250 plus probably USD$45 shipping.
That’s an almost AUD$400 investment in a game I can’t see the rules for or what the expansion is, and that’s asking a lot.
Cthulhu: Death May Die has only just launched in the last 12 hours as of posting, so everything is pretty fresh. I am sure over the next few weeks there will be more information, so expect a follow-up post in about 3 weeks. I will then talk about if I decide to back this one or not, and the reasons why. In the meantime, check out the Kickstarter page and let me know what you think.
Until next time,
