It has begun!

Let’s wind the clock back to 2007 when Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was released.
While it was an awesome cross-over, it wasn’t exactly met with the best reception. It was not a bad game by any means, and it did have some nifty gameplay features like Falling Kombat and Klose Kombat (which were interestingly enjoyable).
The problem with it was, due to how violent and graphic Mortal Kombat is, the game was heavily tamed because of license restrictions with DC characters. This kept it from its true potential.
Everything about Injustice: Gods Among Us, however, does justice to the DC Universe and its characters. Whilst it may not be as violent as Mortal Kombat, it is crafted to suit the DC Universe more than what MK v DC was.
The DC characters were basically tacked onto a Mortal Kombat game whereas Injustice is a stand-alone game where Netherrealm had more freedom to work with. Read the rest of this entry

Every gamer (and budding gaming journalist) dreams of going to E3 in Los Angeles. Getting their hands on and playing the most anticipated games.
However, like most people, I’ll take what I can get.
Here in Australia we currently have the EB Games Expo. While it’s not as big as E3, Australians like myself get a chance to check out the latest on games we’re all looking forward to, often with later builds of games shown earlier in L.A.
Over the next three days, we’ll be providing feedback on the latest, greatest and everything in between that we manage to get our hands on.
The following are our impressions from the limited time we had with each game, and are subject to change over the course of each game’s development cycle.
Impressions are judged with the following rating:
Green: game looks fantastic, polished and basically a guaranteed winner
Yellow: game looks great, but there’s a bit of uncertainty or something that didn’t quite work right
Orange: game is shaping up, but needs some work.
Injustice: It’s not another MK v DC Universe
For one thing, it has Batman!

I had a completely open mind, ready for whatever they had to throw at me.
I spent the next 20-30 minute sitting with no prior knowledge about this game apart from the fact that it’s set in the DC Universe and it’s the second DC fighting game developed by Netherrealm Studios.
