Parallax in Injustice: Gods Among us, but not???
I’ll be the first to admit, I am disgustingly excited for the Injustice, which is really just DC’s version of Marvel’s Civil War run. I pre-ordered the battle edition. This trailer shows off a different side of Hal Jordan, and another emotion he’s capable of instilling. When I first watched the trailer I got super pumped, and excited… then it had time to resonate, and the whole thing began to unravel it’s self as another cheap addition.
Anyone who knows the GL lore, would akin this trailer to an attempt to introduce Parallax in some way, shape or form. This would be great, if the production team on the game hadn’t just done a quick pallet swap and recording of some wild lines about fear with Adam Baldwin, Hal Jordan’s voice actor. Hal as Parallax had a very distinct powerful and fear inducing look, and that just can’t be capture with a quick color swap from Green to yellow.
I can look past the reuse of moves, as they do indeed take much more time to conceptualize, program, and develop, but the base for the costume is there, in the comic books… I’d really rather not be the whiney fan that asks for too much, but this simple color switch, where there should be a whole new skin, in what looks like an integral story plot point of the game, will really stunt some aspects of immersion into the world. This is not Mortal Kombat, the DC lore goes farther back and deeper than that. Those tricks won’t work here.
F-Zero! This has been sitting in my queue for at least a month, I kinda forgot about it. Just like the series itself this comic is the subject of much recent neglect.
For those who haven’t gotten their fill of fighting in DC Universe Online, it seems a specialized new multiplayer online battle arena game (MOBA) is on its way later this year from Turbine and WB Games. While it’s not based directly on the Geoff Johns-written 2005-2006 DC Comics mega-event of the same name, the new Infinite Crisis game will allow players to battle across shifting environments using “a roster of powerful heroes and villains” from across the multiverse, including Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola’s Gotham by Gaslight continuity, and the Batman & Dracula trilogy by Doug Moench and Kelley Jones. The game will be free-to-play when it launches on PC later this year, with the official Infinite Crisis website offering a sign-up portal for the eventual Beta. So far Superboy Prime and his reality-warping punches don’t seem to be involved in IC’s narrative, but a “shadowy force” is mentioned as behind the game’s meteor-inflicted plot (maybe the Anti-Monitor?).
