Injustice: Gods Among Us

SDCC: Hands-on with Injustice: Gods Among Us

12:56 PM on 07.14.2012 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

NetherRealm's Injustice: Gods Among Us is the studio's next big fighter and of course it's on display here at Comic-Con, where Nightwing and Cyborg were revealed for the first time. I got a chance to play as Nightwing, who as it turns out is currently Ed Boon's favorite character. I think he's my current favorite too, as his play style makes him the most robust character in the game so far.

Nightwing wields two short sticks for combat, offering plenty of good combo opportunities. Players at anytime can put the two sticks together to create a staff, which will provide players with a better reach. The drawback is you end up losing your speed when using the staff.

Cyborg is the "ultimate weapons guy" as Ed put it, and he really is. Cyborg uses all sorts of projectile attacks, from missiles to even a grappling hook.

The level plays a big part of the experience, and it was pretty funny seeing the Batcave get destroyed due to all the fighting. In one match, Superman ripped off a generator from the ceiling of the Batcave and threw it at me. Then when I got back up he electrocuted me by uppercutting me into the exposed wires from where the generator was. My favorite was when I knocked Superman into the wall displaying all the Batsuits. Some grenades fell from one of the suits onto the stage, which can then be picked up and used as projectiles.

NetherRealm isn't ready to talk about story details yet, but Ed assured me that the story will explain how Superman is able to punch characters like Nightwing into space, and then slam them back into the ground, without severe consequences.

Mortal Kombat had a nice presence at EVO recently and I asked Ed if they're hopping for some Injustice presence at next year's EVO. He told me that the team is designing the game for as wide of an audience as possible but they're also keeping tournament players in mind. They're putting in features advanced players will be able to "dissect, devour, and really sink their teeth into."

I'm more in the "wide of an audience as possible" camp, and like Mortal Kombat, I can see myself having a lot of silly fun with this one.

I want Just Cause 2 and Metal Gear Solid V + Peace Walker to fornicate together so we can have a beautiful big open world to blow up and/or fulton. Then I want to build an infinitely-sized base of soldiers, each with their own personalities and stats.

When SFV drops next year we gotta get some DTOID noob battles on, practice with online lag with friends, be really bad casuals together. We can call it Kanye Night Fights. #Swerve on FNF (just kidding...maybe).

So someone messaged me on a Lightning fast, comment board that bow they're super depressed. And I worry for them now. Because a comment board is not something to get depressed over, just because someone disagrees with you if your an ass, people will be 2.

Guys, a sequel to Retro City Rampage: Shakedown Hawaii! Someone should really write about it. Lots of Dtoid staff were in the RCR after all.

Fuck racism man, shit ain't fair. Can't stand it and I shouldn't have to. Nobody should.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.
