Last year, Superman and friends smashed their way back onto millions of consoles off the strength of Injustice 2. Unfortunately, despite my rabid fandom for the first game, financial reasons caused me to sit this one out. Thankfully for me, and whomever else missed the boat, a new edition of the game is coming on March 27th with all of the DLC characters, a bunch of DLC skins, and an expanded tutorial mode. All of this at the cost of $60 US.
At some point, I will get this version of the game. By the time this launches, I might still be in the midst of Dragon Ball FighterZ fever. But as soon as that subsides, I’ll be there to finally catch up. Is Batman still a good character in this game?

The Heroes in a Half Shell make their gameplay debut in this new trailer from NetherRealm Studios. It is awesome to see how they fight as a team, though it opens the door for more questions about how this all works. We should find out soon enough, as the Fighter Pack 3 DLC is out in February.
I regrettably still don’t have a copy of Injustice 2, but this may finally push me over the brink. I need to play this at some point!

In 2009, Street Fighter IV changed my life.
Having taken an extended hiatus from the fighting game genre, Street Fighter IV roped me in for good. The transition wasn’t instant, as I gave up the game initially after losing dozens of matches in a row online. However, once I watched my first fighting game tournament live stream, it opened my eyes to how great fighting games can be when you have a deeper understanding of how to play them. As I tried to emulate the likes of Gootecks, Mike Ross, and Justin Wong, I found myself falling in love with the genre in a way that I’d never loved any other type of game.
Since 2009, fighting games have grown to become my favourite of any gaming genre. Here’s why!
The latest addition to the Injustice 2 roster is one that caught me by surprise. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming to Injustice 2 and it’s heavily implied that they’ll play as one character.
First off, I love it. The Ninja Turtles started out in the world of comics, and they somewhat recently crossed over into the DC Universe with Batman, so this isn’t completely out of line. Having not played as the Ninja Turtles in a fighting game since the surprisingly good Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters, I look forward to playing as them when I eventually get a copy. That said, I’m very curious to see how NetherRealm incorporates the four characters into one. Is there stance-switching between the four? Is one character the main and the others come out as assists or as part of specific special move animations? We’ll find out soon enough!

On May 16th, 2017, Injustice 2 smashes its way onto store shelves. While I adore that first game, my excitement for the title has been muted for quite some time.
