You know what's cool? Grabbing Atrocitus, flying him into space, taking a lap around the sun, and then blasting him back down to Earth with heat vision. No matter how many times we were able to pull off Supergirl's super move in Injustice 2, that trip round Sol just never got old. It was just about the most satisfying special attack you could ask for when adding Supergirl to the roster. It certainly beats her cousin's, which merely takes place in the upper atmosphere, and has him punching his opponent a few times before flinging that foe back down to the ground. So yeah, Supergirl is better than Superman.

Getting a sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us was always highly likely after the first game had such tremendous success. Following in the footsteps of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, NetherRealm's Injustice took the familiar faces of DC Comics and put its unique twist on them, pitting the world against Superman's tyranny. If you finished the story mode, you'd know heroes like Batman finally locked Superman up in a Red Sun prison... but there are those that wish to see the Kryptonian regime restored. That's where Injustice 2 picks up.
Of course, there's a new threat looming over Earth as well, but NetherRealm is mum on just who or what it may be. Hey, you can't spill all the beans in a reveal trailer. What you can reveal though is a strong cinematic that reveals not just which characters will be returning, but what NetherRealm has in store for the game's mechanics to make it stand out from the previous entry.
There's a great old gag from The Simpsons in which Homer, who's trying out to be a member of the secret society the Stonecutters, is going through an initiation ceremony that involves him getting hit in the butt with paddles over and over. The members of the group keep doing the same thing to him, but they call it different names, like "Crossing the Desert" and "The Unblinking Eye."
That's what playing Batman: Arkham Origins for iOS is like.
Batman: Arkham Origins is set for a release later this month, leaving us all wondering just what we're going to be doing when we can't sit around on the couch playing it on our favorite console. Sure, there's a handheld game, but what about situations like work, funerals or Frenching where using a Nintendo 3DS or PSP is frowned upon?
Fortunately, Netherrealm studios has risen to the challenge with the Arkham Origins mobile game for iOS devices, where you can pretend to be texting while tapping to make Batman punch the ever-living heck out of Deadshot, Copperhead and other assassins. Check out the release trailer and more info below!
By now most fans have seen their share of Injustice: Gods Among Us clashes, but far less footage of the game's single player campaigns that go beyond mere mortal kcombat. NetherRealm's new DC fighting game will task players with all sorts of side missions under the familiar "S.T.A.R. Labs" banner, though, putting them in control of heroes, villains, and an assortment of noncombatants in the game as they flesh out the post-deadLoisatomicbombpocalypse DCU. IGN took some of the missions for a spin alongside I:GAU Senior Producer Adam Urbano, showcasing Catwoman's kitty Isis sneaking through security systems, Black Adam blasting asteroids, a potential playable Martian Manhunter tease, Aquaman convincing sharks not to eat him, and more. Though these side missions won't be a part of the game's playable demo launching on April 2 and 3 on PSN and XBL, it's still a good look at what players can expect when the full game launches on April 16. You can check it out after the cut.
Readers of DC's digital Injustice: Gods Among Us comic book prequel have already begun piecing together the tragedy that turns Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League against each other, but NetherRealm's new story trailer provides a proper video game look at just what happened to transform the DCU downright dystopic...
