Get Into A Kick Ass Rumble This April

There may never be a greater name for a video game.

Give yourself a treat by checking out the official site for Kick Ass: The Game, which will be headed to the PlayStation Network and - wait for it - the iPhone on April 15. It's not about a superhero accessing impossible powers to take down impossibly strong foes, and it's not really about saving the world. It's about some dude who tossed on a costume one day and got his ass kicked, and then decided others needed their asses kicked. We'll get 3 playable characters (Kick-Ass, Big Daddy and Hit Girl), 8 total missions complete with differing environments and bosses, Facebook compatibility, special moves, multiplayer local co-op, and even a few mini-games. It's one of those downloadable games that could be a guilty pleasure and well worth your time, provided they just nail down the controls and keep the repetition to a minimum. We don't mind simplistic brawlers every now and then, especially when we want something that doesn't require much in the way of focus and attention. Just kick back and beat the tar out of a bunch of jerks, ala Double Dragon or Streets of Rage. Ain't nothin' wrong with that.

We'll definitely want to try Kick Ass: The game when it arrives in April. It may not top our priority list but we can't possibly ignore it. No way.

I've been waiting for this movie for over a year. I suggest everyone check out the redband trailer over at TheMovieBlog. com


TEG, you win, I'm out. I'm taking a nap on the couch near my front door and waking up to Heavy Rain. See you all in a bit. I'm as giddy as a kid on Christmas.

I would have said that this seems kind of cool, except I saw the trailer for this movie just yesterday. And though the movie looks kind of funny, Another game based off of a movie, I already know I'm going to pass...

I love the comics and hope the game doesn't take itself too seriously. The movie is a sure thing and like Ben said I want a mindless beat em up for this one too.

the comic was pretty funny, I really hope they don't make the mistake that Watchmen made by not including online co-op.

I thought the trailer for the movie looked crap. Nic Cage and yet another dodgy wig lol. But I guess I can see how a game could be some fun. Heck maybe the movie is too, just 1st impressions I got from the clip.

Ahh come on World! Its a psn title so you know it wont be AAA but that might work to its advantage, I'm thinking the usual "movie to game" clich├ęs are out the window because the only other "movie to game" I know of on PSN is Watchmen (Which I disliked) but they had a diehard fanbase from the graphic novel's and the movie, so they could have made half the game about Nighthawk taking a dump and they still would have sold a few copies, but games like Kick Ass dont have the cult-like following so I think they would have more freedom to give gamers what they want.

Final Fight

Streets of Rage

Double Dragon

You bet your ass I'm getting this. Even if it's wacky/dumb I will get this!

I miss the "beat 'em up" genre...wish Capcom would bring back Final Fight...

I wonder why there are no AAA HD beat em ups in three dimensions.

The 2nd (R-rated) trailer looked stupid, in a funny kind of way

The 2nd (R-rated) trailer also looked pretty funny, in a pretty stupid kind of way.

Reminds me of Big Motha Truckers. No one bought it for game play, but with a name like that, who could pass it up.

finally a PSN game with a proper name.
though sounds extremely properly stupid!
ill wait and see, but "It's about some dude who tossed on a costume one day and got his ass kicked, and then decided others needed their asses kicked" certainly is not the best way to promote your game.
