We Need a New Ninja Turtles Fighting Game

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!

The best of all childhoods

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!



6 DC Characters I Want to See in Injustice 3

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!

An evil Superman? Who’da thunk it

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!

Welp, I’m Definitely Going to Have to Buy Injustice 2

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!


Holy Robin! It’s Robin in Injustice League 2!

My interest in DC Comics video games rises and falls with whether or not Robin is involved. I’m shameless in this, and I don’t mind. So when Robin didn’t appear in Injustice: Gods Among Us, I was a little less interested in the game — though it did feature Nightwing, and Robin was involved in the tie-in comics.

Well the new trailer for Injustice 2 features Robin for reals, people! It’s Damian Wayne, to be sure, but he’s got a real Robin costume!

Robin shows up about a minute into the trailer fighting Batman. So it’s not like my dream come true of a heroic Tim Drake version is going to happen. But I will take what I can get.

Here’s a screenshot showing off the Robin costume!


Not the best interpretation of a Robin costume, not even in video games. But like I said, I’ll take what I can get. I am not 100% more interested in Injustice 2.
