The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were added to the roster of the Injustice 2 fighting game this month, and they’re pretty amazing. Injustice 2 is already a fun game, with a huge roster of DC Comics characters. I don’t know what deals were struck to add the Ninja Turtles, but you can play as all four, they are super fun and they look pretty amazing. The graphics, especially on the Turtles, are stellar.
This has me longing for a new Ninja Turtles fighting game. The world had one ages ago, called Tournament Fighters. So such a thing already exists in the world.
Now I just need the geniuses at NetherRealm Studios to use the same fighting engine and graphics of Injustice 2 to make a full Ninja Turtles fighting game. We don’t need an Injustice 3, even if I’ve already done a List of Six of characters I’d want to see in the threequel. I want a Ninja Turtles fighting game. We should all want it!
Obviously you’d have all four Turtles as playable, plus Splinter, Shredder, Krang, a Foot Soldier, Bebop, Rocksteady, April, Casey Jones; the basics. And then the sky is the limit to round out the roster! Injustice 2 has at least two dozen characters, with more added via DLC. So how about Wingnut and Screwloose! And the Punk Frogs! Or Ray Fillet, Rat King, Baxter Stockman, Monty Moose, Walkabout, Halfcourt, Zodi, the new badass scorpion from the comics, or Leatherhead or Chrome Dome or Antrax!
I love the Ninja Turtles and I love the endless supply of nifty mutants! After seeing the Heroes in a Half Shell in action in Injustice 2, with the supreme graphics, voice acting and easter eggs, I just gotta have more!
Make it happen, universe!
I am currently stuck in a rut with the DC superhero fighting game Injustice 2. I like the series well enough, but I’ve never been a huge fan of fighting games in general. For this sequel, however, they introduced character leveling and loot boxes, and that’s where I’m stuck. Basically, you now earn new gear and equipment so your fighters can play dress-up!
Injustice 2 is a character redesign game, and I just have to grind through some fights to get new outfits for everybody!
The outfits don’t mean anything. It’s not like I compete on any multiplayer level, or that I’ll be saving the outfits to share with anybody. I just like seeing all the superheroes dressed up in fancy new duds. Hopefully another video game will come along soon to break me out of this loot-grinding rut!
Until then, I’ve got a few ideas for what superheroes and villains need to appear in the next game, should they make an Injustice 3! Join me after the jump for my ideas!
In just a few short days, 2017 will come to an end and we’ll all move on with our lives. Was it a good year? I suppose. The highlight of the year was publishing my own graphic novel, Gamer Girl & Vixen, with my awesome team. And I just got off a great family trip to Universal Studios in Florida. And I’m not dead yet. So I suppose 2017 was an OK year.
And like every other pop culture-infused website on the Internet, I’m putting together a list of my favorite bits and pieces of the pop culture year. Unlike all those other websites, I don’t have an entire staff of people to check in on everything. I only experienced the few things I experienced. For example, I don’t have a Nintendo Switch or a Playstation 4, so I missed out on some of the year’s best video games. On the other hand, I made a point to go see more movies in the theaters, so I have more to pick from. It’s been a weird year.
Join me after the jump for my favorite picks from pop culture! And feel free to share your own in the comments!
The DC fighting game sequel, Injustice 2, is finally coming to PC in a couple weeks. I was considering getting the game in the first place, but now it’s an absolute certainty. Look which fighters they’re adding to the game!
I mean, I guess you can be excited for the Atom and Enchantress, but why would you? It’s the freakin’ Ninja Turtles, yo! In a quality, high caliber fighting game! I can only hope their successful addition will spawn a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fighting game in the Injustice vein!
World of Warcraft expansions keep coming, and the next one sounds pretty big: Battle for Azeroth! I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty final to me. Though, Blizzard has not said this is the final expansion. But it does bring the classic Horde vs. Alliance war back to the forefront!
As always, we got a sweet cinematic trailer to go with the announcement!
And we got a trailer talking about the new additions to the game world. We’ll finally unlock Kul Tiras, which is cool.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) I’m in one of my off-periods for World of Warcraft. It’s one of my favorite video games of all time, and it’s a gameworld and lore I love to the very core of my being. But I can’t always afford to play or want to play. I haven’t even touched Legion, which will hopefully go on sale soon.
The expansion sounds cool, but the number one thing that will bring me back to WoW — new playable races — wasn’t announced for the third expansion in a row. The last new playable race we got were pandaren (which I loved, by the way).
Instead, the new expansion will have subraces. They look pretty cool. And I suppose this would give me a good reason to finally roll a proper dwarf and troll.
But I want to make an ogre, gosh darnit!
