The conclusion of E3 was almost as exciting as its beginning for fans of DC video games. Awards were won, Scribblenauts Unmasked's Maxwell continued to steal the show and DC Universe Online made an exciting new announcement. Here's a look at the show's final two days...
Things got off to a great start on Tuesday at E3, with long lines for Batman: Arkham Origins demos and fast and furious Infinite Crisis showdowns involving both professionals and expo attendees. Here’s a snapshot of E3’s first day…
This year, DC Comics fans can look forward to an unprecedented number of new videogames starring their favorite heroes and villains. From the dark, story-driven action of Batman: Arkham Origins to the team-based online combat of Infinite Crisis to the all-ages puzzle-solving of Scribblenauts Unmasked – A DC Comics Adventure, there’s a DC Comics game for all gamers, and every one of them will be on display at this week’s E3.
It was quite a fight. The challengers were unyielding, using the environment to their advantage and breaking out their special moves, until at last only three remained standing.
Yes, three. What? You thought you were talking about Injustice?
We spent a good part of last week talking about Injustice: Gods Among Us here on DCComics.com. And of course, that came right on the heels of a number of awesome game trailers, a recent 5.2 Reasons column on the game and of course the massive 10-week Injustice Battle Arena.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is now in stores, and millions of DC Comics and fighting game fans are likely playing it right this very minute. But fans who watched the Injustice Battle Arena finale last week were treated to the reveal and first look at Injustice’s first DLC character—Lobo.
Yes, when the world’s as troubled as it is in Injustice, it was only a matter of time before bounty hunters came calling. And when it comes to rounding up super-humans, no one’s better than Lobo.
It may be going up a bit later than usual, but if you think we’d let this week pass without another patented (as soon as we remember to call the patent office) DC Week-In-Review, you’ve clearly been hanging out with B’dg because that is NUTS!
No, it’s been an unbelievable week for DC Comics fans, and if you don’t know why… Well, then you’re probably in the right place.
But before we get to all the juicy, amazing details, we may as well just get this out of the way now.
Not all of the hits in Injustice: Gods Among Us are the two-fisted kind. Available now digitally and on CD on April 23rd, Injustice: Gods Among Us – The Album features eleven tracks inspired by the new DC Comics video game. But what’s likely to get Injustice fans to put down their game controllers (at least for a little bit!) and pick up their headphones are the bands behind those tracks.
Earlier this month, the Joker was confirmed as a playable character in Injustice: Gods Among Us, the upcoming DC Comics fighting game from the creators of Mortal Kombat. However, while the images we’ve seen of him have certainly brought a smile to our faces, we haven’t gotten a great in-game shot of his deliriously disturbing grin. Until now, that is…
As a special Halloween treat for fans, and to send Super-Villains Month off in grand style, we present to you an exclusive new screenshot of Injustice’s Joker!
