Reminds me of the Uncharted games.
What a god awful name
I'm wondering if they are trying to build up the brand recognition of "Gods Among Us" because it was prominently featured in the first story arch of the New 52 Justice League comic. And the new rumors of a 2015 Justice League movie. I also agree this game doesn't need a subtitle.
I think it is fine but it is weird since Injustice League is just the group of villains they fight in the comics with the likes of Lex Luthor, Catwoman, Sinestro, and so on.
Edit: I didnt notice it had a subtitle. It isnt good, but very video gaming
And the fact that the heros are beating the crap out of each other constitutes "Injustice"
That's odd.. I have no problem with the name. Whereas I have a huge problem with Superman's fighting stance.
edit: It can't just be called Gods Among Us I think. What sounds better
"hey let's play Gods Amongus" "aw yea I love Godzahmungus"
"hey let's play Injustice" "aw yea I love Injustice"
Keep in mind they want to get people excited about this not just as DC fan service but as a serious fighting game.
@Hailinel: I thought this was some alternate time line where the heroes were always evil, but it turns out they weren't. Joker kills all of Superman's friends and makes him insane and then he tries to become dictator of the world. Whenever writers try to make Superman dark they always fail miserably and it just comes out awful. This might be the worst time I've seen in comics.
Some touching stuff between Batman and Supes so far in the comics (Superman asking Bats if he wants to be the Godfather was sweet, I thought), I hope the campaign in the game leads up to the Batman vs Superman fight.
The premise is interesting so far and it's nice to be able to see writers cut loose with our favourite characters and not be bogged down by continuity or worrying about the writers plans after them.
@Willza92: I've just seen this exact premise before and I never like how it plays out. I also think it's weird that it's really not in his character to assume he knows best for the entire planet and become a dictator... He has humility and can accept when he doesn't know best. I feel like if they want to make it dark and different from how the heroes usually act, then there's no need to set them up in the first place to be who they usually are. It's already been established it's going to end badly.
This same concept has already been done in Kingdom Come, only it was much more well executed. Actually, the more that I think about it, the more this is an even darker rip from Kingdom Come.
I've read the prequel issues... the story is going to be awful.
Videogames/comics tie-in are never very good. They tend to make many characters forget common sense or character traits in order to justify an all-out situation. Arkham City tie-in were just as bad.
I just wish they don't go all moody with the story. Part of the charm of MK9 story mode is that embraced the cheesiness of the universe and the premise. For what I have seen, this tries to take themselves way too seriously.
