I will be sending Brendon along though. And one of the things he’ll be doing is playing the Deadpool video game. Because although he hates comics, he loves shooty shooty games.
Two playable levels will be available, and the organisers will have to deal with him asking philosophical questions about the glamourisation of violence in games in general, the specific trivialisation of death in the Deadpool game and why it isn’t available for a Nintendo system.
He’ll pick up his free exclusive Deadpool poster for playing the game, if he does decide to order it there and then he’ll get an exclusive Deadpool T-shirt and very possibly he’ll be there on Saturday at 2pm when they give away a thousand Deadpool masks.
He might even get a photo of himself against the Deadpool photo, tweet it with the hashtag #DeadpoolGame and maybe win a copy of the game. Even though it won;t be on a Nintendo system and he’ll get cross about that.
