Harley Quinn vs. Wonder Woman (best stage transition ever)

#1 Posted by Lukeweizer (2706 posts) -

FYI: I'm stuck on IE 8 at work, so I have the basic text area. No embedding or line breaks! - New "Battle Arena" video released. Killer Croc's appearance explained about half way through the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtHpLes2kK0&list;=HL1360355105&feature;=mh_lolz

Is this Mortal Kombat with DC superheroes? I could get into that.

It seems to be a similar feel and concepts (juggle juggle juggle), but one of the producers said its a different button config and you can change the directional inputs to work like Street Fighter.

@altairre Thanks a lot for doing that.

There are changes but it seems quite similar.

And wow, those videos look so awesome. The transitions are WAY better than they were in MK vs DC. So great.

Not really watched much of this game running. If those combos are that organic in general gameplay then i am definitely considering obtaining this.

I like the concept of environmental interactions but i'm wondering if they're a bit overdone here

Batman is kind of a dick.

This game looks smooth as shit. Great idea to run this little tournament pre-release.

@hbkdx12: Well they can be turned off, so if people don't want to worry about being thrown through a wall or being smashed by a globe, they have the option not to.

WTF?! I had no idea this game was so freaking cool!

#18 Posted by Fredchuckdave (5719 posts) -

Tekken length juggles!

#19 Posted by Undeadpool (4958 posts) -

These, along with the Hector Sanchez interview on this very site, have convinced me that this game is a Day 1 purchase (unless I see anything that contradicts the awesomeness on display in both those).

You press back to block. BACK TO BLOCK PEOPLE! My MK lizard brain can't process that.

Oh, I'm super excited to see more and punch dudes and dudettes and non-dudes.

Looks fun, I can see this game picking up steam and replacing Mortal Kombat at Evo. Still boggles my mind how they manage to make iconic character designs look so ugly in their engine, though.

#22 Posted by Hailinel (25179 posts) -

Not really a fan of Wonder Woman's character model. She looks kind of weird for some reason.

#23 Posted by 49th (2783 posts) -

Woooooow, that was really cool. Hadn't seen anything of this game yet, I like how interactive the stage is.

#24 Edited by csl316 (8959 posts) -

Looks great.
 
That Batman combo at 1:40, yikes.

#25 Edited by Ghostiet (5289 posts) -

I love that those are Arkham City models in that HQ vs. WW fight.

I think it's her face - it looks hella manish.

Ok, so they're reusing Killer Croc, Penguin, Two-Face and The Riddler models from Arkham City. Why not just reuse the AC Batman model? It looks so much better than the dumb looking one they have right now.

#27 Posted by Zacagawea (1599 posts) -

Comic book Bane looks prrrrretttttyyyy silly.

There's going to be alternate costumes and I'm sure they'll have a more traditional looking Batman.

I like almost all the designs but I don't like Batman's mask as is.

If I squint he kind of looks like Sigourney Weaver. Yeah. This could work.

Back to block?

Suddenly I'm hella interested in playing this with my bros. (one of them is a big DC guy anyways)

I'm so glad they gave Diana some pants.

#34 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5841 posts) -

I like how Harley Quinn got knocked into that room and then everyone started beating on her for no apparent reason.

I like almost all the designs but I don't like Batman's mask as is.

For example, the New 52 costumes are available if you pick up either the Collectors or Battle edition, but I'm sure they'll be available as DLC later on.

I have to admit, I laughed when Harley Quinn's toy gun malfunctioned.

Wonder Woman looks like a dude. At least they got Harley Quinn right.

Besides that, game looks incredible. I'm really hyped after seeing the batman bane fight and the arkham asylum stage
