Injustice Gods Among Us - a blagger's guide to the character

Anyone who still thinks Aquaman's a laughing stock should try reading his new 52 run, Geoff Johns is doing a great job with the character.

As for Injustice, I'm not usually much of a fighting game fan but if I can recreate TDKR's Supes vs Batman fight I'm in.

In injustice Batmans son ( Robin ) hasn't died yet :P and you left out a lot of characters like Nightwing, Black Adam, Shazam and the others.

If you think Aquaman is good in that you should read the Injustice comics.

She mentioned only the ones that truly matter. Doubt I will be playing as any of the others if I get this game anyway. I shall give the demo a cheeky peek to see if it is appealing
I had fun once, it was awful.

To be fair I have heard this, I just can't afford to add to growing monthly pile at the moment. You'd recommend then?

Definitely worth a shot. You can get the first volume with Issues 1 to 6 for about a tenner if you shop around. I wasn't a fan before I read it.

Really? So Green Lantern , The Flash , The Joker , Catwoman etc don't matter? Pretty sure a lot of people would disagree but hey whatever.

Oh , that's not me having a pop at the article , but as you obviously know your stuff Aoife , lets have one on some of the more obscure characters as the first paragraph aluded to. As a fight game nut ( I think the only one on these forums ) I'd love a bit of background knowledge on some of the others as I'm not the biggest comic fan........

I mean seriously , who the hell is Hawkgirl?
I used to make arrow in the knee jokes , then Arm Fall Off Boy kicked me in the balls....... Come on Boon , quit teasing us with DLC characters we don't want , give us Arm Fall Off Boy dammit! Or at least give us Detective Chimp........

I for one will look forward to playing this and ensuring superman punches Bats squarely and repeatedly in his stupid overrated face...

Can't wait to fight someone online who kicks my ass as Bane. I always seem to get thrashed by the git who uses the slow-ass 3 hit killer. Still having nightmares about Zangief from the 16-bit era, mate had the infuriating knack of using the hairy russian crapbag to incredible levels of unbeatableness :x

Up for a few matches then? for some Baneful payback from Battlefield 3 8)

It would probably be a game that you school me in though, seeing as I am just getting to grips remembering all the hundreds of moves.

It shouldn't be a game i buy as i'm a capcom fight fan normally & I don't need any more games, but i've been following this since i saw the first gameplay vid - looks impressive! Not sure i could school anyone on a fighting game any more, gone are the hours of practice i used to have on SF2, there's just always another game that tempts me now instead of practicing! :)

I'll accept your challenge however (provided you're talking 360 and not PC), although im a bit worried i won't be able to use my fightstick - i've read people are having issues getting all the moves to work on the madcatz/capcom designed ones... I can't go back to playing a fighting game on the 360 pad, i just can't. Have downloaded the demo though so will give it a try myself tonight :x

OXM minions - any word/details on the single player stuff too? Heard there's actually some story in this one which will make an incredible change from fighting games of recent years, the SP modes seem to have been neglected for ages in favour of MP, please tell me the trend is reversed in this one? Any info about the fightsticks/compatibility gratefully received too, gracias! :)

PS: If you choose Bane Golli i'll rage-quit at the character select screen! :wink:

EDIT: Scratch the fightstick config thingy, seems the things i was reading referred to people not being able to map macros properly. Don't agree with macros for fighters anyway, that's just lame (imo of course), but if the sticks give people the option i guess i understand why they use it... :|
