As if I don't have little enough free time as it is!

*Sigh*... I'm not much of a video game player.
Don't misunderstand, I LIKE video games, but I have absolutely NO time to play them.
(I still have the last 2 MYST games sitting in the box waiting for my move to a retirement home, so while the other old bats are playing shuffleboard, I can solve weird mysteries and puzzles. Of course, by then, it'll be 3D-HD-SYNAPTIC-ENHANCED VIRTUAL shuffleboard, and my "advanced graphics" computer games will seem quaint and archaic by comparison, truly marking me as "that OLD guy who won't get with the times!" *Sigh*).

Anyway, even if I were able to plunk down some money for a video game, it would be better if it were an actual tangible console game (the last one that I purchased was the Marvel Ultimate Alliance - which I STILL haven't had a chance to finish).
I have absolutely no time or money for ONLINE gaming!
That way leads to madness.

So, now Marvel is teasing me with THIS!
The new Marvel Super Hero Squad ONLINE game - set for release in 2011.

DOCTOR STRANGE is featured in the teaser trailer.

Doc shows up twice. At the
:48 second mark
and again at the
1:17 mark.

And truthfully... he looks pretty darn cool!

See for yourself.
(I re-sized the video to fit my column width. Hopefully my HTML-fu is strong!).)

I'm going to have to win Lotto or something, so I can sit around all day in my underoos playing games and reading comics.
I mean, that IS the message being given to me by the release of all this swell stuff that I want to have. Right?

That DOES look awesome! I hope they've made Strange a worthwhile character, unlike in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance where he's incredibly underpowered.

There is a new Super Hero Squad game coming to DS so hopefully that will have him playable as well.

Underpowered?! He turns enemies into crates! It's the greatest power ever!!!! Marvel: Ultimate Alliance made me like Dr. Strange EVEN MORE! :D

It's really too bad that they didn't MMO-ize the mainstream Marvel U. I think I would have found it more visually appealing. I'm glad I'm not as tempted by this as I would have been by the other, because then I'd have been in real trouble!
