Injustice: A DC fighting game from the MK guys:

Why would I write that?
Captain Cold is actually considered one of the beast DC villains.
Remember! Hyperbole is an exaggeration made for comedic effect, and shouldn't be taken literally!
Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
He's still a dude in a parka. tongue

Wally's version of the Reverse-Flash drops the title, making him just "Zoom". That's not as bad, at least.

Nothing excuses the Rainbow Raider, though.

Well Batman is a guy with Bat ears. Doesn't make him a bad hero. I'd say it makes him better actually because readers look past that.

I'll give him this, Captain Cold is one of the least silly Flash villains.

I'm given to understand that Flash has one of the best rogues galleries. Don't know much about them myself though.
Uh the fundamental spirit of cooperation and unity that drives the human race is unconfirmed to be more efficient than random computer input
Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
I've read his character sheet. They seem like pretty decent villains, but they look ridiculous.

The Ice Climbers are kids in parkas, yet they bash things to death with wooden mallets. tongue

This article gives a little more detail on the gameplay, and says it's similar to BlazBlue.

I might get this, actually..

The over the top Cinematics are pretty cool to look at, as well, and I presume they are part of the gameplay.

The article notes that Superman punching people into space is indeed his super. Nice.

Pretty cool that they're trying to differentiate this from MK as much as possible. I really like MK, now, but it shows that these guys are willing to give this game its own identity. The over-the-top supers and BlazBlue-esque unique specials have me keeping my eye on this.

Interesting.

Going back to the complaints about Darkseid's outfit - fuck you, that's Jack Kirby. As for Harley... please. Wonder Woman's had to go through much worse shit.

All business!
Double Down seems like a Netherrealm-style Flash villain, but his schtick might overlap with the Joker's too much.

Why would I write that?
I hope Red Hood shows up. Love Red Hood.

So I've been poking around the DC character pages, when I discovered something interesting.

Solomon Grundy is a Green Lantern villain. Hold on, we knew that already. Here's the interesting part, it's not the Green Lantern you're probably thinking of. Grundy is most associated with Alan Scott.

Grundy was reintroduced to the Silver Age DC long before Earth-2 so don't look too much into it.

[up] Not sure what you're implying. Crisis on Infinite Earths left everyone living in the same universe, anyway.

Until it was revealed that there really were alternate earths in, Infinite crisis i think? DC has to get more creative with their titles.

This is genuinely funny!

They have a website. Nothing new, just thought you'd like to know.

A good writer puts in a lot of details in there story. But a great one gets a story from a single detail.
As Useless as Bubble Man
It's stupid how there's people actually complaining about Netherrealm putting focus on a Story Mode. MK 9 not only proved that fighting games can have a storyline more complex than "good guys stop bad guy in tournament", but it proved that a fighting game story can be absolutely epic if the company in charge actually cares enough to give it thought. MK 9's story should be what fighting games aspire to, not avoid, so I applaud Netherrealm for trying to keep to it for Injustice.

Sounds like a problem Pokemon is having. No one cares about the plot nor what's really going on. They really just want to turn the pets into killing machines and challenge others to online battles.

Thinking back then, many games before the 90's didn't have any real plots. People play them just to beat the game and maybe get the high score(if there is one).

Some gamers didn't care then, so would they care now?

I don't konw what to think, anymore.
