Injustice 2 coming in 2017.



I think that's a pretty awful trailer!  Here's all these heroes beating the shit out of each other for no reason, and suddenly armor appears on them.  Well, there's a reason armor appears on them, and while they don't say the word it smells distinctly of microtransactions:
"The Gear System uses RPG-like mechanics to reward you with loot drops every time you play the game. With each loot drop, you will earn character-specific gear to outfit and power up your roster – changing not only the look of each character, but your fight strategy and your personal approach to every match. As you gear up your characters, you’re building a roster of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains that reflects your choices, and your preferences, which can be vastly different than your opponents. A few play sessions in, you can expect your Aquaman to look and play different than anyone else’s Aquaman you may come across."

Can't get the perfect codpiece for your Batman?  Buy a few dozen of these blind boxes for 99 cents each and you might get lucky!  (You won't - but you'll want to try again!)

Comin' next year.

  1. Come now, are you telling me you wouldn't pay a few dollars for the perfect codpiece?

  2. A week and a half with Overwatch has proven that yes, yes I would.
