A Deadly Assassin Joins The Cast Of Injustice: Gods Among Us

A deadly assassin has joined the cast of Injustice: Gods Among Us that may be familiar both to comic book fans and past players in the Mortal Kombat series.  While MK co-creator/NetherRealm Studios creative lead Ed Boon has been up to his old tricks by teasing character reveals via Twitter, which has included things such as Reese’s Pieces and Swamp Thing comics, we finally have a character reveal today that isn’t quite as surprising as we all hoped it would be.

Batman: Arkham City [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The fact of the matter is that if you haven’t played the original Arkham Asylum, you missed out. If you did, you probably already own this game, and might have even wrapped it before me. Either way, this is a stellar title that absolutely everyone should have to play to continue holding the title “gamer,” “geek,” “nerd,” or even “Batman Fan.” 

The Pros: 

+Improved free-flow combat system.

+Enhanced 'side-quest' system, featuring all of Gotham's fave villains.

+Bigger, badder world of Batman to explore.

+One of the single most impressive Batman stories of any medium, ever. 

+Awesome new gadgets that change-up the combat and stealth.

+Everything in the game has a purpose, time-line and consiquence, making even mundane collecting tasks become 'life or death' situations.

The Cons: 

-Review scales simply don't go high enough to represent this game accurately. Rating : 

It would probably be a little bit of an understatement to say that Rocksteady had a bit of a high bar to hurdle, expectations wise, when they decided to release a sequel to Arkham Asylum. It was a game that was heralded by many game critics as the best of the superhero (and for Batman I do use that term loosely) genre. Beyond that it was considered to be one of the best games of 2009, winning all kinds of awards on all kinds of gaming enthusiast sites, including a game of the year nod from Shogun Gamer.

A few new tidbits on Batman: Arkham City

It’s definitely heart breaking that Batman: Arkham City won’t be available this year, but at least we continue to get more info on the project – even if it teases us beyond belief.  For a game that doesn’t come out until late next year, I’m surprised at how forthcoming WB Games and Rocksteady have been concerning Batman’s upcoming adventure. Obviously the PR machines will go into gear to hype Batman: Arkham City but in the past two months we’ve gotten a crapload of info compared to what we initially got when Batman: Arkham Asylum was announced.

To some it was a massive disappointment that we didn’t any new info on Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 at E3 or at the San Diego Comic Con.  Aside from the Spike VGA reveal and a few character reveals via voice actors, and some interesting domain registrations, we’ve haven’t gotten a peep as to the next adventure of the Dark Knight.
