Injustice 2 [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Injustice was something of a surprise hit that defined what a great fighting game had to do in terms of content and story. Injustice 2 takes all of that, improves on it subtly, then changes the game completely by providing a simply unrelatable amount of content to the single-player fighting experience.

The Pros: 

+Vast character customization
+Deep dark story that continues from the original
+Seemingly endless rewards for continued play
+Stunning visuals and iconic character moments
+Great base play that will be ready for tournament play at EVO

The Cons: 

-The amount of content could be considered overwhelming
-If you're not into a gear-grind, that could be frustrating considering how much there is

The original Injustice was a game that no one really expected much out of. After the lackluster response to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, it seemed the concept of superhero fighting games under the banner of NetherRealms might simply be a novelty one-off.

Ermac's New Fatality Leaves the Internet Gutted

Mortal Kombat's history is one built on controversy. At the very dawn of violent video games, it was hassled by all kinds of concerned parties for its use of blood, violence, and inclusion of features like the Fatalities. Of course, we've come a long way since then. Games these days are far, far worse than what we were so concerned about back then... so Mortal Kombat itself needs to keep upping the ante.

Mortal Kombat X Mobile Announced

There was a time where the concept of mobile based tie-ins was something that disgusted me. Actually, it would be fair to say there was a time when mobile gaming in general disgusted me. However, I have come around on the concept and there's a collection of games on my smartphone that I play daily.

For a while, one of those games was the Injustice Mobile game. It looked good and because I'm a fan of collecting, the card-based character collection appealed to me.

New Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 Trailer Surfaces

If there’s one live-action video game project that has people excited, and for good reason, it has to be Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2. After proving that Mortal Kombat can still be relevant in the world of cinema, it’s almost time for the second season to kick off and thankfully we have a new teaser trailer to get us even more excited.

Latest Injustice: Gods Among Us Trailer Ratchets Up The Tension

The tone of Injustice: Gods Among Us is hammered down in this new story centric trailer that is so damn serious that it’s worthy of the ever terrific “Just Got Real” Bad Boys gif.  What exactly has caused such a feeling amidst and otherwise arcade driven fighting game? Well how does the destruction of Metropolis sound along with Superman and Wonder Woman getting all high and mighty with a rather intrusive form of justice?

Injustice: Gods Among Us Receives Battle Edition (Big CE) and Release Date Revealed

At this point there may be so many games coming out in the first half of 2013 that it’s hard to keep track of which games should immediately join our collection and which should receive the Gamefly/Redbox treatment.  Choosing between a dozen games may be a tough thing to do for gamers with less than deep pockets, but fans of fighting games are likely going to go all in for Injustice: Gods Among Us and the rather massive special edition SKU that will be released alongside the game.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 Cast Is Revealed In This New Image

Director Kevin Tancharoen has taken to Twitter once again to reveal a new image from season 2 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Since filming began on the second season of Legacy Kevin has been rather forthcoming in giving us teases of what’s to come in the form of simple character or set snapshots. Now with the first footage of MK: Legacy Season 2 set to debut early next month, Kevin has shared an image showing the complete cast.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 Pics Show Kitana and Shang Tsung

It may not officially be Fatality Friday since there isn’t a new Mortal Kombat game or a well-polished trailer showing some brutal yet entertaining combat. Even then, the Fatality Friday moniker is rather fitting for today considering we have additional character glimpses for the upcoming second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 Set Pics Show Character Glimpses

Filming is underway on season 2 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy and as we already know some changes are being made in respect to the cast.  It may still be disappointing that certain actors won’t appear in the project for various reasons, but at least we can rest easy in knowing that director Kevin Tancharoen isn’t abandoning his mixture of taking a realistic and moderately dark approach to the world of Mortal Kombat.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 May Not Or May Not Feature Jax [Rumor]

Consistency won’t be entirely found in season two of Mortal Kombat: Legacy when it comes to which actors are portraying our favorite combatants.  As you may recall, last week saw a wave of news come in concerning who wasn’t returning to reprise their role in the second season of MK: Legacy, the biggest of which was actor Matt Mullins not being asked to reprise the role of Johnny Cage
