Raven Added to Injustice: Gods Among Us

Let me go on a tangent. I’ll admit, I’ve been on a bit of a break from gaming. The recent Sim City and Alien: Colonial Marines fiascoes have simply made me sigh in frustration. However, there are great games out there that have me coming back to the medium I love so dearly. Games like Ni No Kuni, Bit.Trip.Runner.2 and Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm have sucked me back into gaming.

As a result, hype rarely gets to me. However, Injustice: Gods Among Us has me hyped. Surprisingly, I let this one go under my radar. I was curious when it was announced at last year’s E3, but then simply forgot about it.

Then news of my favorite Teen Titan being added to the game got me interested. Apparently GameTrailers accidentally uploaded the reveal trailer, which was originally supposed to air on GTTV. However, it was far too late.

There is a lot to be excited about here. A dark comic book fighting game from the creators of Mortal Kombat. On top of that is stellar design. It looks amazing. The detail in the environment, from the different depictions of the Joker and “Fuck Superman” graffiti to the awesome special moves, this game looks like the work of people who truly love what they do. It looks like a game for fans, but made by fans. It looks sincere.

That sort of thing pulls me back from the edges of gaming. I am incredibly excited for this.
