Wonky looking animations...check

Really goofy looking juggling...check

Definitely a Netherrealm game.

Seriously why can't they release a game that actually looks fluid and normal? Just let Capcom or Namco Bandai make Mortal Kombat from now on.

Kind of a shame because the stage interaction stuff is cool, and the game looks nice graphically, but then everything else looks very Netherrealm, and the DC license really isn't that interesting once you are past Batman and Joker.

This has been my issue with every game made by these people. They look bad, and the animation is just clucky looking. Really off putting. Looks like less of a fight between two skilled superheros and more like a drunken brawl.

Man, this game is ugly!

Edited by LegendaryChopChop

This game looks really uninteresting to me.

Although, that Flash moment is pretty fucking cool.

I don't like the look or animations of Tekken games or the plasticine look of Virtua Fighter, but I'm not going to ask some other company to make those games from now on just because of aesthetic differences. It's just personal taste.

I don't think Capcom would ever do a game with fatalities, it's against their design philosophy I've heard. We can dream though.

That Flash super seems like a direct nod to the JL cartoon:

One of the best moments of that show.

The show made me a fan of The Flash.

He can obviously fly. As seen by the way he ends his super attack, by jumping in front of his enemy and then stopping mid-air

Would have been cool if Tony from Comic Vine was on this Quick Look, would have been dropping that DC knowledge!

Wait, wait, wait,

I knew Robin from Teen Titans was from Batman, but this Cyborg looks like an adult versin of Cyborg from the series. Does this mean Raven, Beast Boy, Starfire and Terra are all real comic book heroes as well?

Maybe not Terra from how Teen Titans ended.

I wrote all of these names from memory.

I know nothing about comic books but I know Starfire was one of the "new 52" that caused a kerfuffle about over-sexualization which didn't fit her character from TT.

Also I hate you for reminding me about Terra :( Haven't watched TT in a long time. Too bad they didn't add that with the rest of CN.

I'll Clarify

The Line up from the TT cartoon is the same/similar the the New TT of the 1980 before the first DC reboot (Crisis on infinite earths). Terra was a Titan but it turned out she was real evil and had a relationship with Deathstroke (yes she was under-age). And got killed, can't remember why.

Starfire was a sex slave (no really) and her race have no qualms about casual sex, sexuality, nudity etc and so by earth standards she seemed pretty "free", the difference between her old way and the Nu52 is her first impression wasn't handled to well and long time fans (comics not the show) where upset and was as genuine and sweet as her tv counterpart (just add sex, hoho!). Her new characterisation is off to me but not bad and is marginally the same, however she's turned into a generic badass superheroine and there's enough of them :(

Raven from the cartoon and old comics is round about the same however in the Nu52 she has an absolutely stupid costume, what's worse is it's not how she looked in the first teaser image in the fist Nu52 TT issue. I can't tell you what she's like because the Writter TT I find awful not just for the designs or characterisation but how he destroyed the TT history (by that I mean every thing that happened before is completely meaningless).

Cyborg was a cool character till this reboot, see he was the team techy and has the same orign as before, in the 90s he contracted a techno-virus and became an entire planet, when the TT and JL saved him he went gold and finally had the ability to look human. but later for some reason some dumb writers (maybe the guy who's writing the current JL whom i'm indifferent towards) felt it was a good idea to put him back to his goofier 80s look and get rid of that development. In the Nu52 his origin is completely rushes and he looks like a clunky mech, i haven't seen anything that makes him a decent character so far. Cyborg was always older than Nightwing (first Robin) but it seems by a much larger margin now.

Beast boy like the tv origin was a part of the Doom Patrol but went out on his own, he had a romance with Terra before it was revealed he was evil, Beast Boy was a cool Titan and his relationship with Raven is tricky. His new origin in the Nu52, for some reason he's red and i think he's older and in a less than subtle (or good) re-intergration of Wildstorm's(DC owned imprint and universe before it closed down and fused in the reboot) Gen13 in the form of The Ravagers. I don't read it.

Whoa, i think that's it, sorry for the lengh. :P

The Teen Titans are DC characters. They exist in the same setting as Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, etc.

Here's what Starfire looks like now.

Deathstroke with that cheap stuff.

Posted by NowSayPillow

Glad to see that Netherrealms still can't model a woman to save their life. Everyone of the the ladies in Mortal Kombat used the exact same body model and it looks like they just slapped a Wonder Woman costume on it for this game. Terrible.

Is it just me, or does jeff seem fucking awesome at this game!?

Was on board until I saw the Deathstroke match...

That didn't even look like the dudes were trying to get in. And there are plenty of air dashing and teleports and other specials that deathstroke will be much of an issue. My first thought seeing that stuff was "wow, I might win more than I lose in this game this weekend!" And I'm bloody awful at fighting games.

@meowshi: I thought I read somewhere that Robin and Starfire hook up or something.. I don't read comics so I don't know for sure. But if they did, Robin is a pretty lucky dude. I could've sworn he had a thing for Bruce Wayne though.

Edited by avantegardener

Looks good!

Edited by DarkbeatDK

I've been following the comic, even though I don't really read comics normally. There are several sharks getting jumped in it. I don't know if the following pic is a spoiler or anything since it's from the comic that prequels the game.

Posted by Milkman

God damn, this whole thing looks nuts as hell.

Posted by Undeadpool

I love Netherrealm and their unlockable costumes. Makes the idea of downloadable ones seem a LOT less sleazy.

yeah, they where on and off lovers for years, in an alternate timeline they have a daughter called Nightfire but then it is documented that Dick Grayson has a thing for redheads.

And know Robin never had a thing for Bruce, never ¬.¬

Digging the UI and the rest of the visual design overall.

Posted by Monkeyman04

I don't know if that one dudes lvl at 512 (or whatever it was) was a glitch or not, but at one point it goes to zero. Was that a glitch? I'm so confused.

Anyways, I'm not really into fighting games, but the game looks cool and crazy in a good way.

Posted by teekomeeko

This looks like my kind of crazy. I'm not into fighting games, but playing through these modes with these characters might be a good way to spend some time.

I really like the costume designs, as well (always have, even when the internet was being ultra whiny about it), but the overall UI design is very attractive.

Would love to see a scrub league with this since they have so many folks from GameStop they could tap for a combined live show.

Posted by Orbitz

@gokaired: Oh ok. I wasn't clear on that, thanks.

I know Robin never had a thing for Bruce I was being sarcastic. Referencing the fact that the dynamic duo has been a giant gay joke for decades.

Too bad I ain't buying games for my Xbox anymore. This looks cool.

Wii U ftw :D>.

Posted by kagato

Awesome video, really looking forward to this game arriving in time for the weekend. Did Tony not want to sit in on the quick look though? I was hoping since he is pretty much the subject expert that he would have done some commentry.

i've been itching for a new fighting game for a few months now, this may be it

Posted by Slaegar

Comic books are silly.

Posted by Mandrewgora

shoulda got Tony in on this.

@orbitz: the bigger joke is the amount of women Batman goes through, I swear, Bruce is the biggest ho of the DCu :P

Man, I know NOOOONE of the DC characters.

Posted by LaserLambert

I somehow knew that Jeff would take to Green Arrow. being he's a projectile man, and Green Arrow's give no fuck attitude.

Edited by arimajinn

I hope they bring this to pc

Posted by happymeowmeow

Yeah my interest in this waned during that horrible deathstroke match. If this were a Roman arena, panne and feces would be thrown. Tigers would be released from their cages. Fighting games need a "release the tigers" type option for when things get boring/stupid like that.

Posted by KelpPlankton

This seems pretty cool, I like how many unlockables it looks like there are and that you get stuff just for doing anything. That's a good way to handle it.

Hopefully the DLC is all as good as MK9's was, and this keeps a solid community.

Edited by CitizenCoffeeCake

Batman good, the rest of DC dumb.

Edited by crevisjr

Wow! The supers in this game look sick! Who needs fatalities :D

Edited by TheSouthernDandy

Man this game looks rad. I told myself I was done buying games for a bit but I might need to rethink that.

Posted by Orbitz

@gokaired: Oh definitely! But I guess that's the whole "Billionaire Playboy" thing Bruce has got going on.

Posted by Toug

Using the actors from various cartoons is a little weird in this context. Cyborg yelling "Boo-yah!" in this gnarly ass fighter is sort of weird.

Edited by AURON570

The clash system looks really dumb.. so if you lose the wager, then you also lose the meter that you bet, but if you win it you also lose the meter you built, but you get damage?

Posted by PurplePartyRobot

After watching Deathstroke v. Deathstroke, I think that mirror match has dethroned Shoals v. Shoals in Divekick for "Dumbest mirror match ever".

Edited by kerse

this actually seems kinda awesome, if I was way into fighting games I'd get it right away, but since I'm not I'll pick it up when its cheaper, still seems like fun
