Re: Injustice: Gods Among Us 2: 5/16/17

Have the Ultimate Edition pre-ordered, really wish I had taken advantage of that Visa checkout deal.
I'm not a big fan of the way this and MK play (I much prefer Street Fighters controls), but it's a DC fighting game so no way could I pass it up.

I, too, wish that I would have taken advantage of the visa checkout. I hope that the Ultimate Edition gives us access to ALL future DLC and not just some of it.

I have the first game and remember enjoying it but I haven't played it since it came out. Might replay it again before picking this up since it's compatible for One. Plus I'd probably rather wait for an ultimate edition to come out and get all the extra content.

Didn't realize the ultimate edition was a steelbook, that was a nice surprise.

I did know it came with a Steelbook but hadn't seen it until today. It's pretty



Lies! It actually looks like this :

That Batman costume is atrocious. I wish they had put Supergirl on the cover.

As has been getting posted on most websites, the facial animation in the cutscenes is crazy.

Re: Injustice: Gods Among Us 2: 5/16/17

Those steelbook pictures are different editions of the game, shouldn't they have different covers?

Played a little bit yesterday, forgot to order until last week, and wow was it a pain to get the Ultimate Edition from Best Buy. When I remembered it was coming out this week, it was unavailable for pick up from my two closest stores (the closest with it was 40 miles away, wasn't doing that), and it wasn't available for shipping, but it kept popping in as available for shipping. Since I was using 2 gift cards, after missing out twice and having it removed from my cart due to demand, I had to keep the session alive so I wouldn't have to reenter the gift cards.

The game is insanely pretty and the Multiverse stuff seems pretty cool. I'm looking forward to putting some time into it this weekend.

This is the first time in over a month that The Show has left my PS4, luckily I can still buy and sell cards on the website

Re: Injustice: Gods Among Us 2: 5/16/17

I had the same problem (waited to long to pre-order and closest store available was 40 miles away), so I had to make that drive yesterday after work to get mine.

Playing through the tutorial reinforced to me just how limited my skill in fighting games these days is. All these super throw reverse counter cancels and shit that I don't have the memory or reflexes to ever use if I even understood what the fuck they were in the first place.

Had I known the upgrade back would be available on PSN for $40, I would've just bought the standard edition and spent the extra $8 over what Best Buy cost me to get the Ultimate Edition stuff.

One thing I wish these games had is more unlockable comic related stuff. Like a version of The Crypt from MK but with first appearance stories, concept art and the like.

Yeah the ultimate edition is literally just an ugly steelbook, the game, and a code. I can't believe they still manage to put Batman in the ugliest costumes... considering the whole concept with battle armor and whatnot is tailor made for him.

I agree about the tutorial... the timing on the combos in these games always seems off to me, and I always forget the moves when I step away for a week or so. I'm not very deep into it but it also seems like microtransaction hell which I'm never fond of.

Speaking of microtransactions, there's a mobile game like last time, if you link them you get an alternate costume for Cyborg right off the bat.

Watching some gameplay clips of this, and god, this is one UGLY fucking game.

Sure, art is subjective, but the art is unappealing to me in every sense. It's like they took Zack Snyder's already ugly "grim-dark" aesthetic, and amplified it by 10. Instead of "Injustice", they should call it "DC Heroes, Hot Topic edition".

Re: Injustice: Gods Among Us 2: 5/16/17

If I recall, the last Injustice game was like that as well. Oddly enough, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was the best representation of those characters, even though the game wasn't very good.

Re: Injustice: Gods Among Us 2: 5/16/17

Anyone get their Darkseid code from Best Buy or anywhere yet? I don't see mine.

The storyline actually ties into the Injustice comic (which is actually a great comic for a tie in). I'm not sure how you'd know where two armed Ollie came from otherwise, though they give you enough hints I guess.

As ugly as some of the characters are (they improved WW, but not enough, IMHO), the writing is great with tons of fan service. Just Damian calling out Bruce on head trauma was awesome.

I was just about to post here. I didn't get mine either from Best Buy. I went to their Gamers Forum at http://forums.bestbuy.com/t5/Gaming-...st/td-p/864303, clicked on the link provided. Fired off a PM with the requested information (Order Number, email address, Preorder Bonus) and they sent me a PM and an email with the code in a matter of MINUTES! What service.

Re: Injustice: Gods Among Us 2: 5/16/17

Got mine shortly after picking up my copy.

I really like how you can pick different color variations for the characters. The white and black eyed versions of Superman/Supergirl look particularly cool IMO.

Thanks Decker, did the same and got the same level of response.

Man I may hate the way they nickel and dime people, and even dislike a lot of the costumes, but I just love that this is like a love letter to DC fans in just so many ways.

Re: Injustice: Gods Among Us 2: 5/16/17

Damn if these fighting games are not overly complicated to get down some of the moves. There are times when I could swear that I am getting the buttons pushed at the right time and in the right order and still not get the move to pull off. There were several times during the training that I had to skip a particular move after supposedly failing at least 20 attempts.

I haven't tried this myself yet but apparently there are two options that are by default turned on that you should consider turning off:

Release check (also called negative edge): in order to do a special move you need to release the buttons. So you hold down a button, do the motions, and release it. Some may like this better but if you're used to street fighter you're probably not doing it this way.

Input shortcuts: makes the controls less precise, but allows you to pull off special moves easier.

I realize there aren't many of us left on the board and all, but any interest in forming a guild for this game? Before I go search for a random one?

I have the game for PS4. I'll join a DVD Talk guild though I don't know how active I will be with it.

Great looking game BTW

Re: Injustice: Gods Among Us 2: 5/16/17

I don't know that we have enough to run a very active guild, they do reap great gear rewards though. Although the guild multiverses are ridiculously hard if you aren't that good at the game (like myself). I can't even beat one guild multiverse, it's way too frustrating since it always scales to your level.
Speaking of gear rewards, make sure you have your AI team set up so that you can get the 5 daily mother box bonuses for defending if anyone challenges your team. You also get 5 for simming through matches as well (which you can do at 4x speed).

I enjoy DC games, but suck at fighting games, so I doubt I'll get this. I couldn't even finish the first Injustice.
