If you haven’t heard well now here it is, Injustice 2 is coming! I have never been a massive proponent of fighting games, the storylines never really worked for me, but me being the DC Comics fan that I am, I had to try Injustice: Gods Among Us. I loved it, the game is extraordinary, the add-ons were fun and added to the storylines, and I never truly became tired of the gameplay.

“In Injustice 2, we are introducing new features that will change the way fans play fighting games,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios.  “We’re always interested in pushing the genre forward and allowing players to customize and level-up their favorite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains is a significant leap.”

 

“Expanding the DC Universe in games continues to be one of our top priorities, and Injustice 2 showcases amazing gameplay and an original story to bring the characters to life for players,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.  “NetherRealm Studios is offering fans an experience of customizing and battling with DC’s iconic characters in an entirely new way.”

 

Injustice 2 offers the latest DC fighting game experience that expands on the previous title’s larger-than-life showdowns.  Every battle defines you in a game where players personalize iconic DC characters with unique and powerful gear earned throughout the game.  For the first time gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.

 

Injustice 2 continues the epic cinematic story introduced in Injustice: Gods Among Us as Batman and his allies work towards putting the pieces of society back together while struggling against those who want to restore Superman’s regime.  In the midst of the chaos, a new threat appears that will put Earth’s existence at risk.  Players can play from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favorites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl and Aquaman, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd.  Battles will take place across arenas that have evolved in scale and span across iconic locations such as Metropolis, Gotham City and Atlantis.

 

To celebrate the announcement of Injustice 2, fans who have downloaded the hugely successful Injustice: Gods Among Us mobile game can unlock the Injustice 2 versions of Superman and Aquaman through the in-game Challenge Modes.  Released in 2013 and developed from the ground up by NetherRealm Studios, the Injustice: Gods Among Us mobile game is available as a free download on the App Store and Google Play.

Well as time moves on it seems that speculation has started swirling about all four, this includes the newly moved Supergirl, CW shows and who will be in them, what will change, and what adversity will our heroes face this time around. Word on the street, the street being everywhere else on the internet, is that Supergirl may have to tone down some of the graphics as it’s pricey, but when you look at what Berlanti and company have been able to do with the Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow it kind of feels like Supergirl will fit right in, just maybe a few shifts will have to be made aflts111tonally in Supergirl. We have indeed heard the Captain Cold himself, Wentworth Miller, will be stepping away as a series regular for Legends, but it’s not the last we’ve seen of him as it is said he may very well pop up again back up in the Flash. Speaking of the Flash speculation is running wild with Wally and Jessie both being hit by the lightening off of the particle accelerator, will they both become speedsters? Will we get a Wally West Flash? It seems they may be hinting towards it.  Needless to say for all four DC shows it will definitely be an interesting new year to see how they bring them all together without it being too cluttered.

Sticking with the DC theme that seems to be what I want to write about today I’d like to take a quick minute and just send my late condolences and honest to goodness adulation to the late Darwyn Cooke and his family. New Frontier is not only one of my favorite DC books, but how they brought it to DC Animated Feature took nothing away from what he drew, and the story that was told. I am saddened to see another legend in the industry grow, but hope that young comic enthusiasts look at his work with awe and know that at one time a giant walked among us.

 

From One To Another!

Well it has been another stellar day for news and content! Supergirl has been on hiatus for a few now as CBS didn’t know if it wanted to re-new the show. It started off pretty strong, but tapered to something like 2.6 million views a show, and at the cost of each episode, the pilot cost 14 million dollars alone, and the cost of filming in Los Angeles CBS just didn’t want to take that gamble. So what happened you ask, was it cancelled? No dear fan it was moved from CBS to it’s sister station the CW, that’s right the house that Arrow built, which features the Flash and Legends of Tomorrow as pillars of what has become a channel for DC superheroes. If Supergirl brings her fanbase there is a shot she dethrones the Flash as the highest rated show on the CW. So welcome Supergirl everyone, and if you didn’t watch Season 1 do so now because I guarantee there will be some more crossovers now that she’s home.

Now onto video game into movie news “Assassin’s Creed: The Movie” starring Michael Fassbender has released its very first trailer via the Jimmy Kimmel show last fassbender-assassins-creednight. There are a few liberties that I can see in the trailer that have been taken, the biggest is the Animus was basically a VR bed and here it’s a ton more activity then anyone should have to do while re-living someone else’s life. I guess it makes sense though because panning from action sequence to Fassbender laying in a compy recline with something on his face wouldn’t exactly make for thrilling action sequences. Being a huge fan of the games I really hope they do them justice. If you haven’t seen the full trailer here it is:

Alright folks that’s all for now, as always share, comment, but never hate!
