After 4 years, the highly anticipated sequel to Injustice God Among Us is finally here. Set 5 years after the first game in which Superman is defeated and imprisoned, Batman and his gang are trying to clean up the mess that he and his regime have made. With most of his allies who have either been victims or have been a collaborator with the regime,  Batman must recruit some new allies to help combat The Society led by Gorilla Grodd. But after Grodd’s defeat, the true mastermind behind the Society is revealed – it’s Braniac. Now, Batman must recruit Superman and the members of his regime to help take down Brainiac.

Injustice 2 is a fighting game set in the DC Universe. Like most fighting games, Injustice 2 has you chaining together combos and using that mechanism to lower your opponent’s health bar. The game also has interactive environments in which, depending on the character, they can pick up an object and throw it at their opponents. There are also stage transitions that the player can perform which can not only do some damage, but can also send their opponent into a new part of the stage.

Like in the previous game, Injustice 2 has a trait system which can provide a temporary buff to their character. Also, returning from the previous game is the super meter which allows players to pull out special moves and super moves as well.  Players can also spend a portion of their super meter to pull off a more powerful version of their special move. A new thing that Injustice 2 adds is a loot system in which players can earn loot boxes that unlock gear for their characters. The gear not only changes your character’s look, but also gives your character a stat buff as well.

The game also has plenty of single player modes as well. There is your story mode which is about 6 hours long. There is also a multiverse mode which allows players to travel to parallel worlds within the DC Universe and battle against various  opponents with different handicaps, rules, and goals. There is also an arcade mode within the multiverse which you can use to unlock endings for all the various characters in the game. There is also online multiplayer mode where the gear system is disabled  and all the characters are reduced to their default levels. Players can also form and join online guilds with up to 50 players. Guild members can work together to complete daily and weekly objectives  where they can earn gear.

I’ll admit I loved this game. I thought it took everything that made the first game great and made it even better. The graphics and character models look amazing. The facial animations on the characters look jaw-droppingly realistic. The minor tweaks to the fighting system makes the fights even better. The story mode once again is awesome. The game also gives you plenty of characters to play around with which sports a whopping 28 to play with and with more characters on the way via DLC. Plus, the addition of guilds is something that I have been wanting in a fighting game. The online multiplayer is really good too. It has your standard ranked matches like most fighting games these days. It also has king of the hill mode where the winner of the match stays and the next person tries to dethrone the winner. The writing, the voice acting, and the story overall are all really superb in this game as well.

There is only one complaint I have with this game and the big complaint is that the gear system is random. Let me explain, say if you’re using a character like Batman and you just earn some gear –  sometimes you might get gear for a character like The Flash. You don’t have much control over the gear you get. It would have been nice if you could use in-game money to by the gear for the character you use.  Injustice 2 is available for Ps4 and Xbox One. Overall I feel Injustice 2 is a superb sequel over the original. It improves a lot and adds new stuff in as well.

That’s why my final score for injustice 2 is a 4 out of 5. Go out and check the game out, you won’t be disappointed.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming game Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.

 

Originally Released for the PS2 on March 16, 2006, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age has been officially remastered for the PS4.

 

The main protagonists of this game are Vaan (Rebel Orphan)(Swords/Greatswords), Ashe (Dalmascan princess) (Katanas), Basch (Knight) (Swords/Spears), Balthier (Sky Pirate) (Guns), Fran(Viera) (Bows), Penelo (Vaan’s Childhood Friend) (Staffs).

 

The main antagonists of this game are Vayne (Archadian prince) and Gabranth  (Basch twin brother/Archadian judge)(Twin Swords).

 

An example of this game’s story is that the Archadian empire is waging war in an ongoing attempt towards world domination, thus resulting in the deaths of Reks (Dalmascan soldier/Vaan’s older brother), Rasler (Nabudisian prince/Ashe’s husband) and Raminas  (Dalmascan king/Ashe’s father).

Disney Magical World 2 (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles & I’m here to review the Nintendo 3DS game Disney Magical World 2.

 

This game is the 2016 sequel to the 2014 3DS game Disney Magical World with even more Disney worlds and characters to encounter, assist and spend time with.

 

The game takes place in a magical town called Castleton where you not only manage a cafe near favorable Disney characters such as Mickey, but you also can travel to six Disney worlds.

 

The six disney worlds are comprised of Disney’s Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and Winnie the Pooh.

 

Throughout this game, you discover ghostly beings of unknown origins are invading Castleton as well as all six Disney worlds and you must use special magic wands to use Disney magic to deal with them.

 

In each of the six Disney worlds you can attend Anna & Elsa’s Snowman Festival, have adventures as a mermaid/merman under the sea with Ariel, mine for gems with the Seven Dwarfs, surf and hula with Lilo & Stitch, help tackle trouble in Wonderland and have fun both farming and hanging out with Winnie the Pooh & friends.

In conclusion, I find this game truly Enchanting and am certain of it to be one of the embodiments of disney’s greatest magics.

Sony PlayStation

My name is Dallas I am going to talk about the Sony PlayStation which has got the controller, console, and memory card. The controller is gray and it has buttons on it which controls the characters in the game. The console has the reset, power, and open buttons and I plug the controller in the console so I can play it. I plug the memory card on the console so I can save my games so I can play where I left off. My favorite games are Resident Evil, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, Army Men, and Disney games.
