DC Universe Fighting Game
So we got a peek at what could happen when DC characters like Superman, Batman, and the Joker would appear in a fighting game in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Now the makers of Mortal Kombat, NetherRealm, have made Injustice: Gods Among Us. Check out the announcement trailer:
The game appears to feature a cast of characters including Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Flash, Solomon Grundy, Harley Quinn, and Lex Luthor. There’s also the possibility of Captain Cold, Mister Freeze, or another ice-based villain. NetherRealm also promises a roster with “at least as many” characters as Mortal Kombat
It looks fun and interesting, but not being a fan of fighting games, I’ll probably pass. I wish Warner Bros. could focus on creating content that was more original and less reactionary to the successes of others. A DC Universe fighting game ends up drawing comparison to Marvel’s many Capcom games which are strong examples of excellent fighting games. A unifying Justice League movie would be compared to the Avengers. So Warner Bros. I hope you read this (Yeah, right): Make content worthy of your characters like Arkham City that respects the source material.
Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Trailer
As I’ve said time and again, I’m a big fan of DC comics. I am also a big fan of Legos. On top of that I am a fan of video games. So of course, I love the Lego games, especially Lego Batman. Well, here’s the trailer for Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.
This looks like the same kind of fun and humor of previous Lego titles, but now we get a full stable of DC heroes to play with as well as a stable of Batman villains with Lex Luthor thrown in the bunch. One thing I’m a little wary of is the addition of voices. So many Lego games have done so well with the silent mini-figs. Minor complaint. I’m looking forward to playing this one.
