They lost me at facebook voting.

Lets hope this is the only skin they put out that way so I don't have to go to the darkside.

The theme thing only gave me a code for a Flash tee. Sucky, because I like the artwork for this game.

Every goddamn time i see Bane using a move i feel the need to say "Ouch". He looks fucking awesome in the game.

Much as I don't care about Shazam, I like his look here.

Looking good so far. Bane vs Batman could've gone either way really but Harley vs Diana? That made me laugh. I hope they don't create any more blatant mismatches.

Do you know if heroes win by voting or if we vote and then anything can happen? Because if it's the option, it's just a popularity contest, and Batman will win. That makes me sad. >:

It's all dependant on how we vote, so yes, it basically is a popularity contest sadly. Honestly though, I enjoy seeing some celebrity reactions as I won't be taking this seriously at all. I wouldn't be surprised if people vote for Batman over Diana in the next round...

@mcderby4: Oh yeah, Batman will win, but that sucks, specially because everybody was all like "Yo, Diana is like a GODDESS, no training or equipment will win against a god". Still, i'm looking forward to Batman VS Superman. I would bet on Superman.

People rooting for Diana was accurate due to the fact that she would annihilate any street-level character i.e Batman, Harley, Green Arrow etc. I HOPE that Batman doesn't make it out of his next fight with Diana.

Batman wouldn't stand a chance against Superman, even with Kryptonite and advanced prep. This has been shown throughout the comics countless times, but hey, I guess comic fans aren't the only ones voting :P

#15 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -

@mcderby4: I think there was a comic where Batman and Super fought and Batman won. Maybe comic fans will scream about that when saying how awesome Batman is.

And i don't like Batman very much. For me, Bane would've won because holy shit, just look at that guy.

The only time Batman has ever "defeated" Superman or even came close to it was in The Dark Knight Returns written by Frank Miller. In there, Superman was weakened prior to their battle, Batman had tons of prep and help from Green Arrow. And even then, he still never really beat him.

In continuity, Batman has never even come close to defeating or even severely harming Superman. And people overestimate Kryptonite's power over Superman. We can see that in Batman: Hush, Bruce utilized the Kryptonite ring Superman gave him in a fight against Superman who was under Poison Ivy's influence. Bruce himself stated that Clark was fighting the control and holding back the entire time and even with Kryptonite, he states his hand would've shattered if he continued to hit Superman.

So yeah, I like Batman, his comics are great, but his fans get a little out of control every now and then. :P

THIS IS A FIGHTING GAME.

I played MK vs DC already and beat the shit out of Superman with Batman.

Case closed.

#18 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

I really hope this plays better than MK, always up for new fighting games but the systems and animations in MK9 I felt were quite poor in comparison to other games on the market.

@mcderby4: Hey, is there any character that you want to see in the game?

Oh c'mon, the whole purpose of this battle arena thing is to have these kinds of discussions(And to see some footage of the game!). Don't let our "nerd" talk annoy you.

I liked MK9, but the animations were kinda weird. I feel like this will be better in the gameplay part, but i feel like i can't say much about the animations.

It's definitely the best MK since Trilogy but god damn, the animations look so weird and cheap, I know MK has always kinda been that way but it just seemed really outdated to me in 2011 with stuff as fluid as SFIV, Marvel and Tekken 6 out there.

Im reading all of these posts in comic book guy from Simpsons voice. Its entertaining.

#22 Posted by Deranged (1856 posts) -

@Demoskinos: LOL! You just made my day!

#23 Posted by Deranged (1856 posts) -

@MikeGosot: I think the roster is pretty great as it is so far.

#24 Posted by smokeyd123 (332 posts) -

Has the Green Lantern been confirmed for this game? I love me some Green Lantern.

Or Deathstroke.

I like him too.

In Injustice, there's some footage where the animations don't bother me, but there are certain situation where it's just so ugly. That Bane move where he runs over the opponent is a good example.

@Demoskinos: Damn, he needs to be a narrator in the game.

I just want some Aquaman. Aquaman rocks.

Both of these have been confirmed. The Green Lantern is Hal Jordan, by the way.
