Posted on July 2, 2013 by Broken Joysticks

Injustice: Gods Among Us has been hitting a downward spiral as of late since the release of Scorpion as a DLC character who quickly replaced Deathstroke as that character to hate. As with Deathstroke, fans and few pros a like went to twitter and forums in order to let NetherRealm Studios know how unfair and broken Scorpion was. They listened (as who really could getting tweets by the minute) and today marks the release of version 1.05 which also comes along with the release of General Zod as the final DLC character in the season pack (free for season pass holders and 4.99/400 msp for those without) as well as a free costume for Ares which is his classic look.

Injustice: Reviews Among Us – More Hands On Impressions

Posted on May 3, 2013 by Les Major

It seems we here at Broken Joysticks love Injustice. Unfortunately we can only share one review per site, so think of this as a compliment to kashhoward’s wonderful review. Below is my review from Darkain Arts Gamers that I am sharing as an extended hands on impression to my time with the game so far. I played the Xbox 360 version and also gave the game a 9 out of 10.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a departure from Mortal Kombat’s usual fighting style, but has familiar elements that will keep Nether Realm fans from feeling alienated. Considered a way for the team to take some risks and experiment with new concepts, Injustice is an excellent example of what an established company can do with a property they seem passionate about.Read More

Injustice: Gods Among Us Launch Event Report

Posted on April 15, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

DC Comic’s stable of superheroes and villains is quite a diverse group; where else are you going to find a crime fighter dealing with the trauma of his parent’s murder years after the fact; the last member of an alien race with our solar system’s sun fueling his powers; and a clown so insane no one is quite sure of his origin? For years Detective Comics have brought us some of the most memorable and enduring comic book characters, and NetherRealm studios have brought a number of them to life in their latest brawl, Injustice: Gods Among Us.

WB Interactive held a public launch event for the upcoming game at Toronto’s Dundas Square over the weekend, where fans could get their hands on the PlayStation 3 version of the game, as well as a chance to meet the co-creator of Mortal Kombat, Ed Boon, at an autograph session. We were fortunate enough to attend both events, and after kicking some superhero ass and shaking hands with one of the industry’s greats, we’re ready to shine the batsignal with our initial impressions of Injustice.Read More


Killer Frost And Ares Officially Revealed For Injustice

Posted on April 10, 2013 by Broken Joysticks

NetherRealm studios has officially revealed Killer Frost and Ares for Injustice: Gods Among Us. While it’s been common knowledge at this point that the two characters were in the game, a trailer now showcases both characters in action. Killer Frost seems to play a bit of a homage to Mortal Kombat veterans Sub-Zero and Frost with an array of ice based attacks such as a slide known to both ninjas and ice shard projectiles. Her hero ability when activated, has each alternate strike she performs to freeze the opponent in place, opening many combo opportunities. Ares on the other hand, seems to have multiple tools such as teleportation, invisibility as well as a giant ax and sword which has multiple uses such as for projectiles, combo extensions and in one situation you can see him drop the ax to then drop Killer Frost on top. Both character’s cinematics are pretty violent for a T rated game but this is beeing made by the fathers of Mortal Kombat. Both characters are showcased on the trailer below. Injustice: Gods Among us will be released in six days! (April 16th) on all 3 major platforms.Read More
