  • Injustice: Gods among Us Now Released

    After months of rumors, speculation and trickled out information about the game, Injustice: Gods among Us is now available in the US, Europe, and the UK, as Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment has now announced the UK launch of the DC super hero based game.

    For those that don't know, Injustice: Gods among Us is a super hero based game that fits into the fighting game genre, intertwined into a brand new story created by the award winning NetherRealm Studios, in collaboration with DC Entertainment and  Justin Gray and Kimmy Palmiotti, of which both are successful comic book writers.

    Players will be able to play as many different characters in the DC universe and test out the powers, gadgetry, and other unique abilities of famous villains and heroes such as the Joker, Batman, Superman, Green Arrow, and so on.

    This is certainly a good step for the fighting game genre as we've seen too many rehashed Tekken and Street Fighter games, and whilst these usually turn out to be good titles, throwing Injustice into the mix will breathe fresh air into the somewhat stale genre.

  • 2 Green Lantern Movies

    Green Lantern.... 1 and 2?

    We loved Ryan Reynolds as Spence in his appearance in Scrubs in 2003, we loved him as Chris in Just Friends in 2005, we loved him as Wade in X-man and Andrew as Proposal in 2009 and now in 2011 we will get to love him as Hal Jordan/the Green Lantern from the motion picture.

    A mystical green ring had chosen Ryans character, a test pilot. This right granted him with otherworldly powers, which he uses to keep peace within the universe in an intergalactic squadron.

    The estimated $150,000,000 budget movie is to be released on June 17th, 2011. Just days away! The Warner Brothers film is expected to be a big hit! However, while the first movie hasnt even been released of course the studio already has its sequel in progress. "There's such a rich history with this character, so you get really excited about the possibility," Reynolds explained in an interview with MTV. "The inevitable war between Hal and Sinestro is something that will have to be dealt with in the second movie for sure, but there's always subplots and a lot of other interesting things going on that are setting up a possible third film."

    I will be looking forward to both films! I probably wont attend the midnight showing or anything special like that, but Id shell out a few bucks for an afternoon showing.

  • Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters previews

    Evil Ambassador Copiozo's Thoughts on upcoming Green Lantern video game.

    You know, it seems that the best movies out there these days are usually ones based on nerd stuff that I like like video games and comic books....with a few titles we wish that didn't get on the big screen (coughcoughFantastic Fourcoughcough). While they are huge hits and are part of my vast DVD library, the best movies nearly almost make the worst video games. This is usually to generate more cash for the movie (the term "cash-in" is used for this case).

    In comes the Green Lantern movie's video game, Rise of the Manhunters. Now don't get me wrong, I love the Green Lantern (all versions of him). He's one of my favorite superheros of the DC universe, heck I can even recite the oath in my sleep. And I'm very excited for the movie coming this summer. But when I heard of a Green Lantern movie tie-in video game, I cringed a bit. Because like any gamer, I know what to expect.

    However, I did cut the slack of my views on that were movie tie-in games = bad games to good movies (coughcoughIronman 2coughcough) and take a look at the movies and screenshots so far released by WB Studios.

    So after viewing the screen captures and the released trailers for the game, I've come to the conclusion that while the developers are trying their best to make a game to break out of the bad image movie tie-in games have, it seems like they wandered into a "God of War clone" territory. While it is great they are using the full function of the ring that Hal Jordan acquires, I do feel like the game is going to turn like a God of War clone set in the DC universe with the Ryan Reynolds likeness slapped onto Hal. There are even a few scenes that look exactly like God of War quick-time events ("mash X to pound your enemies into the ground!), which today, is a bit of a worn out and overused feature.

    Now I know the game isn't out now, and you shouldn't make your decision on my opinion alone, but I'm just here to inform you of what I think. I could be right, I could be wrong. We will have to wait for the game's release. In the meantime, if you want to play a good God of War clone, play Dante's Inferno.
