So I posted my review of Injustice: Gods Among Us earlier this week and there were some things I left out due to time. However more was released yesterday and I figured I would give you a little update.
Tuesday saw the launch of the first DLC in “The Main Man”, Lobo, released along with another Flashpoint skin (Thomas Wayne – Batman) as part of the Season pass package. They also released 2 additional skin packs for the Teen Titans and Bad Girls of DC respectively. The former comes with classic Deathstroke, Cyborg and Raven skins while the latter came with Selina Kyle Catwoman, classic Harley Quinn and #600 Wonder Woman.
For the most part these are okay with classic Harley being the stand out skin offered this week. They also let slip that they were going to release Batgirl as the next DLC for the game. I was not that thrilled personally because well, there are too many Bat family characters already in the game now. But then I watched the video below that has something extra special for fans.
WHAT. THE. FUCK.
That is The Killing Joke version of the Joker, who shoots and beats Barbara Gordon into a broken back which eventually leads to her becoming Oracle for years until the recent New 52 revision. That just made me love this game even more.
Even with all the negativity around the Ed Boon “miscommunication” that all the skins would be free, this makes up for it to me. I can’t wait to pummel somebody while using that skin. This kind of attention to detail is what will bring guys like me out to buy it. I can’t wait to pick this up as soon as it’s released.
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
