Yesterday, something new was revealed unto us common gaming folk. Something strange to comprehend and frightening. Something that sent the Internet blogosphere tumbling into the abyss as women wailed and men gnashed their teeth.

Batgirl was released onto Injustice: Gods Among Us.



Oh. And that Xbox One reveal. But I was too busy playing vidya gaems to invest any energy into that hooplah.

So Batgirl. She's way better than Lobo by a country mile. She's pure rushdown distilled for Injustice. That means she is built to get in an just push buttons and zoning be damned. Easily her best choice is the smoke bomb, which teleports her to her enemy's position to hang them up and throw'em away.But the meter burn version leaves them hanging for a free combo. Easily the best thing against lasers Superman or Sinestro rocks. But it's super unsafe, so you're only going to start combos with it when you know they want to throw shit at you.

For a rushdown character, a lot of her normals are actually slow. Plus, being a close relation to Batman means her normals have some dinky range. Luckily, she can afford to press some buttons because nearly all her strings are safe, plus her rush punch (Redemption) is +1 on block, leading to some mixup possibilities. She has great high/low mixup ala Flash, so she can go low with b1 or high with b2 and start combos from there. Plus, she does have one good fast punisher string: f2 starts in 7 frames, which is just shy of most 6 frame jabs.



It's not all super good times though for Batgirl. I mean, ignoring the fact that they've already discovered an infinite for her. Her damage is justifiably low. For the number of reps and hits she can dole out, she has trouble getting over 30% damage, the magical number for good damage in Injustice. But like I said, her high/low mixup and good footspeed means you have a good chance at staying in and paying up damage in small but frequent chunks.

As for some parting words on the whole Xbox One debacle: a lot can change in between a really crappy reveal event and the moment the damn thing actually releases. As for me, I've never bought a system day one. A console is a huge financial purchase. I didn't own a 360 until 3 years after its initial launch. If I'm getting anything, it'll be a few years after the proving period. Besides, I can still play games now on my 360. Really, I was too busy playing vidya gaems to talk about terribad stupid vidya gaems. I pretty much fit into the 99% the Xbox One is catering too. It has a disc slot, so I know a game is going in there. That's good enough for me to not-hate it. Is it going to transform into a Decepticon and shoot a ray that irradiates the sperm from right under my ball sack?

No? Cool. Anti-consumer? Probably. But I'm the 99%, so does it play games?

It could be up for debate from snarkier comments but srslyguise. It's called an Xbox.

2.5 weeks until Animal Crossing!

By the way, as long as it's relevant from the Nintendo LP issue, one of the first and only let's play I've ever done and completed was on Catherine. Check out my playlist on it.



Another thing. You're probably reading this the day after Wednesday because I'm working grad nights at Disney's California Adventure. All you need to know is that most shifts for that are 11pm to 5am average, I drink tons of energy drinks or coffee, and it cements my hatred for teenagers even more.

* - Grethiwha follows the path of the long defunct Love-de-lic and where its developers went afterwards

* - Are you confused? That cat from Animal Crossing has an Xbox One FAQ. Cold, emotionless, FAQs

* - Genki has a point. Don't just exodus to PC blindly. First they need to shape up the policy of PC ports

* - The blank slate: one of time's oldest and most derided storytelling gimmick

* - #justplaypc initiate with a guide to building your own PC

* - ccesarano isn't surprised at the Xbox One reveal. Clearly gamers are up in arms but someone must be satisfied. Right?

A - But what about all those games I downloaded? Will they collect digi-dust?

A - It's indefensible. Like the 30th wave of a tower defense game. Tower Indefense!

A - Redeem cap for one internet, while supplies last

A - Xbox One reveal #justplaypc

A - The Kinect is watching you. Waiting. Advertising.

A - You should buy a SNES instead of a One. Xbox One? Xbox? The One

A - Sharing is caring button engaged

A - Xeo is excited about games and not the Xbox One





I - Some Bro ham on the web reveals himself on the Xbox reveal bandwagon

T - Sinn 100%'ed Saints Row the Third? IMPOSSIBRU

V - Retrophile returns! Cyborg Justice and Mystery Quest!

P - 80s motorcycle space helmet of the future! On the moon.





C - A commentary I guess. Video commentary. On the Xbox One.

C - Good luck on reading a ginourmous semi-legal walkthrough on starting a let's play

V - Matt tries to launch a highly successful video about bad stuff in the vidja gaems industry

F - Beep boop son

This part is coming after grad night, after getting home at 5am and inexplicably waking up at 11am.

Just checking in. I still don't care about your grievances on the Xbox One.
