The adventures of Maxwell and Lily continue, and this time the they find themselves partnered up with the heroes of DC Comics. Available now on the Wii U and PC, Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure is another fun and exciting use of the DC Comics license and offers a very kid friendly learning experience that is flowing with creativity. If the game was going to be exclusive to any console, the Wii U was definitely the right choice, as the game takes full advantage of the touch panel on the game pad, creating the best Scribblenaut experience yet. What I especially love about the game is the fact that there are so many characters in the game… over 1000 to be exact! The most minuscule of minuscule characters get some face time in this one, including the likes of Acrata, Gilotina, Scarlet Skier, Naiad and Kinetix. If you’re sitting there saying “um, who?” right now… my point exactly.
Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure is the entire reason I bought a Wii U. I love anything and everything comic book related and there is a lot of charm to this game. Maxwell’s notepad is an awesome “super power” and it fits right in with the DC Universe. If you have been putting off getting a Wii U, this is a great opportunity to jump on board. Check out the introduction of the game after the break, as well as a one hour video showing off every single character in the game. Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure is available now.
Today marks the launch of the fourth and final character for the Season Pass in Injustice: Gods Among Us, and it is Zod. Clearly inspired by the fact that he is one of the main in Zach Snyder’s Man Of Steel movie, this Zod looks nothing like the Zod from the film. As a matter of fact, he doesn’t look all that intimidating at all. But he’s there, for better or worse, and I figured I would go ahead and get my hands on him. As part of the compatibility pack, Nether Realm also included a skin for Ares. So hey, there is that. Zod is pretty solid. He has guns and shoots a laser from his eyes. His super move includes punching his opponent up to and all the way through the moon. All in all, he’s not bad. I’m not quite sure why he was made to be bald, though, as he generally is depicted with hair.
Lobo vs. Flashpoint Batman. The ultimate showdown. There’s not official release date for the DLC, but NeatherRealm definitely did a great job capturing the vibe of Lobo. The rumors are not pretty about further DLC, which is said to include an uninspiring list of Batgirl, Zod and Scorpion from Mortal Kombat. Let’s hope that’s not true, because it’s terrible. It’ll be interesting to see what other skins come with the characters, since I am assuming Flashpoint Batman will. More info as we receive it.
It’s a week of firsts for me. First, I played and enjoyed the hell out of a fighting game, and then I went ahead and made a video where I talked about it! Injustice: Gods Among Us is a success, ladies and gentlemen, and if you are a fan of fighting games or DC Comics, it is a must buy for sure. In the video review that you will find below, I spend nearly minutes telling you everything you need to know about what makes Injustice: Gods Among Us so great, why I enjoyed it and what I’d like to see next. The allure of something related to some of my favorite characters from some of my favorite comics was just what I needed to draw me into the world of NeatherRealm, and now it has me seriously considering trying Mortal Kombat next. Sit back and enjoy the review! Injustice: Gods Among Us is available now on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U and PC.
So Batman Beyond is insanely popular, right? How do I know? Because there was a Batman Beyond skin in Batman: Arkham City and I made a video on how to get it, and that video helped blow up my Youtube channel with almost 600,000 views. So when I found out there was an Injustice: Gods Among Us game on iTunes and it was free AND you could unlock stuff within, I was all over it. The game itself is actually really cool and is a great way to kill time on your favorite iToy. Mine happens to be my iPad, and I have been rocking with it all week. There are actually four skins in which you can acquire through the game, but the one everyone is after is the Batman Beyond skin. The video below tells you how to get him as well as shows off how he looks. The details for all of the character skins you can acquire for your console/PC game by playing the iOS version of Injustice: Gods Among Us are below:
Jessey mentioned this earlier, but now Game Informer has jumped into the fray. The latest cover of Game Informer is out and it is official: Batman: Arkham Origins is up next. That’s the cover right there, and yes, that is DEATHSTROKE on the back! I am officially stoked. Deathstroke is one of my favorite Batman baddies, and I am really looking forward to what is going to happen next. What is interesting is the fact that Warner Brothers Montreal is working on this game and not Rocksteady. I am sure it is going to be epic either way. Hopefully this means Rocksteady is fast at work on something equally awesome. As if the origins in the title didn’t give it away, the game will serve as a prequel to the first two games and will show Batman meeting many of his infamous villains for the first time. Batman: Arkham Origins is set to be released on October 25th, 2013 on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U and PC. There will also be a companion release called Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate on the Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita. We’ll have more info as it is unveiled!
What a day at PAX East 2013. Saturday is traditionally the busiest day of the show, and this year was no exception. I dedicated the entire day to seeking out the best cosplayers in the show and snapped a ton of photos. It was such a pleasure to interact and mingle with everyone, and it was easy to see how much hard work went into the costumes. I was also excited to see a lot of Borderlands cosplay, including a bunch of characters I wouldn’t have expected. Awesome! Alright, you didn’t come here to see me writing a bunch of words, so let’s get right down to it.
I did a pretty cool video of one of the cosplay’s that caught my eye as it came in. It looked to be a robot, but as it turns out, there was someone inside. I’ve been told it was supposed to be Clockwork Droid from Dr. Who. Pretty cool video:
Here are many of the amazing cosplay costumes from Day 2 of PAX East 2013 (click here for Day 1):
Well, that is certainly a strange sight, ain’t I right? Hal Jordan versus the Joker? That will be one of the many possibilities in the upcoming fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us from NeatherRealm Studios. I’m not quite sure why Joker isn’t keeping with the armored motif the rest of the cast has followed, but c’est la vie. Neither character should come as much of a surprise. I’m really hoping for Deathstroke or Hawkman next, but we all know it’ll end up being Lex Luthor.
The box art for the game has also been revealed, and although it might have been mentioned before, it looks like this bad boy will be hitting the Wii U. Injustice: Gods Among Us is set for an April 2013 release date.
