Stunt Granny Video Game Review: Injustice: Gods Among Us

Injustice Title Image

Who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman?  You know, if Batman had some special supply of kryptonite that would make it a fair fight?  Would Batman’s superior tactics and ridiculously specialized gadgetry win out, or would Superman conquer with his abilities to fly and shoot lasers from his eyes?  Injustice: Gods Among Us asks these questions and lets the players decide the answer in battle.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a new fighting game from NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive.  NetherRealm is run by Ed Boon, one of the creators of Mortal Kombat, and the influences definitely show in Injustice.  The game is available on PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360; with a free to play version on iOS devices.  This review will be focusing on the PS3 version, but I understand the 360 copy is comparable.

If you are thinking that this sounds familiar, you may have played Midway’s Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe in 2008.  Rest assured, however, Injustice stands apart from the Mortal Kombat games in several ways.  First, the cast is all DC heroes and villains.  The big names are all there: Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Lex Luthor, Catwoman, Sinestro and Joker.  The game also has characters that don’t get the mainstream spotlight treatment, such as Ares, Black Adam, and Killer Frost.

Low-Ki Signs With WWE. Kicks Makeup Lady In Chest.

According to ProWrestling.net, Low-Ki has signed with WWE. This comes right before all of the current layoffs. It is a good hire for the company if they were pushing 6-foot guys with bad attitudes and a tendency to hurt their opponent in the ring. Sorry, got off on the wrong foot there.

Low-Ki has all the tools to become something special. He has a unique look, he talks like a ridiculously over the top Mortal Kombat character and he looks like a legit badass. Unfortunately for him, no one is going to tolerate his work style. He will instantly become part of the WWE machine that poops out clay forms molded in to 3 part matches with no drama and little crowd support. So, good luck Low-Ki. We here at Stunt Granny are pulling for you but don’t have a lot of hope we’ll see you on anything but four squash matches on Smackdown. When we actually watch Smackdown. -Jeremy
