Injustice: Gods Among Us from NetherRealm

An announcement trailer popped up for the new game from NetherRealm, Injustice: Gods Among Us.

For all intents and purposes, it's essentially Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe minus the Mortal Kombat kats.

I dug MKvDCU, and the most recent MK game, but I'm wondering if there was an actual desire or outcry for this game? I mean, it looks neat, and will probably play well, but who was hankering for this?

I love comics, and DC heroes, and I especially love Solomon Grundy---but I hadn't thought recently "Man, I can't wait for a straight DC comics fighting game reminiscent of the SNES game." I feel as though stuff like MK vs DC and Marvel Vs Capcom kind of work because it connects two niche groups. This kind of fits one; a group that likes DC comics-- now that group gets smaller when you consider it has to be people who like DC comics, and video games, or fighting games. Now, I'm not totally stupid, I know it'll have a broader appeal, and people who don't strictly fall into that subcategory will play it...but not everyone.

Trailer.

Whatever, I'll play it, it has Solomon Grundy.

Batman is pretty strong to kick Grundy like that.

Guess they needed to do something to pass the time before MK10.

Cyborg and Nightwing are two new characters added to this game.

Wonder who else may be in it...

After MK vs. DC, this game just seems unnecessary. After watching the gameplay from EVO, it doesn't seem like the combat is very different from MK vs. DC's to begin with, aside from a few enviromental gimmicks.

To me, Mortal Kombat games have been lacking. 9 is good, but I can't keep going back to play it like I did with the originals. MKvsDCU was fun..at first. Then it got very repetitious. I beat it once, then with every character and did all but about 6 or 7 of the Kombo Challenges. With this one...eh..I love DC characters, but I ain't real sure about the game.

I keep asking Ed Boon about adding the Riddler and the tard never responds.


Gotta troll him to get a response. That seems to always work.


Looking forward to the game, just hope to hell it doesn't turn out like MK vs DCU. That game was an awful waste of my hard earned money.

I disagree, I played it for the first time only recently and I had a lot of fun with it. Needed another year in the oven, though, the timing is a bit off and there's nowhere near as many extras and secrets as any MK game deserves. I get that some hated it for being "toned down" compared to regular MK but I think we all knew what we were getting into as soon as it was announced. I thought it was neat just to see one of those "Y'know what they'll NEVER do?" ideas for a game actually happen.

Needed a bigger roster, alternate costumes, and a few more modes, at a minimum. It was especially jarring because the predecessor in the MK series was completely bloated with content. But I didn't think it was bad at all, I liked that they tried some new things with the Grapple and Free-Fall Kombat, and I like that it looks like they'll continue to experiment in this new DC game, even though environmental attacks and such aren't that new of an idea.

I didn't care much either way for Injustice, especially since everyone has their New 52 look (I really hope Classic looks are a bonus unlockable, NO reason NOT to), but having played MK vs DC I'm actually interested.

Yeah MKvsDCU was definitely better than the previous few MKs.

Loved the combo challenges in MK vs.. DCU, took a long time to beat them all, but the sense of achievement was well worth it.

Strangely enough, that was my least favorite part. I was like "f**k it. not worth it."

First time I tried them I said the same thing, but OCD forced me back.

I'm MORE OCD than the next guy but I too said "F*ck That Noize" with the Kombo Challenges. Although I play it on 360 and I've heard that makes it harder, but whatever.

I wouldn't go so far as to say MKvsDCU was "better than the previous MKs", it tried some new ideas but even as a virtual fighting game novice I could see how the other MK games all did a lot more and had a lot more content, and overall felt like more complete experiences than MKvsDCU.

I liked them all a lot though, don't get me wrong. I generally am not into fighting games much and readily admit not being great at them, but I've always had a soft spot for the MK series. I realized just know it's the only fighter in which I've played every game in the main series at least once (not counting the action spin-offs like Myhtologies and Shaolin Monks, which I haven't played).

I wish Sinestro and Hal Jordan were just palette swap Lanterns, like the old Ninjas.
