    I cancelled my order for the collector's edition off Amazon, but have ordered the standard edition off Shipton. Couldn't justify the 65 quid for the CE.

    I know this is a little off topic, but does anyone know the song used in the Injustice: Gods Among Us "The Line" trailer? From about 1:48 onwards.

    I've been Googling like mad for the past 2 hours and the best I can find is the official score which is music directly from the game and the soundtrack, none of which contains this specific song, I've tried Sound Hound with no luck either. It is driving me mental!

    Any help on this is hugely appreciated. Ta!

    Sounds like some fruity scandanavian number.

    I was very underwhelmed by the demo of this so really unsure if it's going to be worth getting. Just felt a bit, light.

    Can anyone recommend a decent, cheap, fight pad for 360?

    I've got a Hori stick but don't really get on with it and the 360 pad was a bit hit or miss in the demo.

    The Streetfighter fightpads are pretty good, may be hard to come by but it looks like Argos have them for a reasonable price

    linky

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    So it's sat on my desk right now. I'm dying to play it, but I'm too busy... Anyone interested in watching tonight or would I be wasting my bandwidth?

    All out stock, but that's pretty much what I'm after.

    Will keep my eyes peeled for one, cheers kinky.

    I was wondering about that myself. Giant Bomb are quite fond of it though.

    Just watched that quick look. DOES look pretty good actually. Might have another go of the demo, see if I can revise my opinion.

    I got my copy (PS3 version) today. I'm not a big fan of beat 'em ups especially but I did enjoy the last Mortal Kombat game and this game looks even more fun. I like that it has a proper story mode even if it is contrived. I'm surprised though that EG have not reviewed it yet; I was expecting to see it today.

    PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Xbox One, PC (Intel Core i7-4770K, 16 GB, 4 GB EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SC, Windows 8.1 Pro), iPad 4, iPad mini with Retina Display.

    I asked Tom Bramwell about that in the end. Apparently Warner were slow in sending out code, but the review is being worked on.

    Got my copy through the post today. Don't know if I'll actually get a chance to play tonight though.

    I like MK because it didn't seem as hardcore/felt more pick-up-and-play than something like BlazBlue (which whilst enjoyable just goes completely over my head) and I like Batman, so I'm hoping I should like this.

    @MrTomFTW CHeers for that man, had a watch for about 15 mins then had to go off and do some work. What's your thoughts on it now you've played it?

    Is it just me or do the cutscenes look pretty dated?

    Had a quick pop at this today in a shop, initial impression is that it's Mortal Kombat-lite, with licensed characters.

    Think I might let it hit the sub-€20 mark as I still play and enjoy MK, so see no need for this.

    I think it may just be my stream, it's not a great picture.

    Anyway, the game seems fun enough. I've just got the acheivement for 50% of the story and so far it's very much like your standard comic book alternate dimension story line. I started the session playing on my Hori stick, but with only 6 buttons on the face I found I couldn't easily burn meter or do the specials so back to the pad.

    It doesn't play exactly like MK, they've changed it from high punch, high kick, low punch, low kick to light, medium, heavy and super power which works well and back to block is very welcome.

    Those long animations are going to grate though.

    Well as I say there's a button each for light, medium and heavy attacks plus a "character power" button that does something unique for each character (like Green Lantern gets a power boost from charging with the lantern). There's also a "meter drain" button that modifies certain specials like Ex moves would in SF.

    There's also an "interact" button that's for all the background smashy smashy stuff, a dedicated throw button and a "flip stance" button that seems to affect fuck all. So for my Hori stick there's just too many buttons :(

    Unless I figure something out that is...

    I am so lame at these games.

    I can't even get past the first tutorial bit where you have to combo 2 light attacks into a special... :(

    Just watched a video review, and having not seen anything of this until now, I'm afraid I'm going to have to go to Sainsbury after work tomorrow and pick it straight up.
  • Deleted user 19 April 2013 09:18:59
    Just had another try of the demo last night and got into it quite a bit more. Still couldn't figure out the meter and such but there's quite bit of potential there.

    If it wasn't for Riptide being out next week I think I would have picked this up at the weekend...

    If it's anything like the MK reboot it slightly changes damage and timings of some combos and also effects which can be linked together. Basically something only very top level players who dedicate all their time to the game use.

    The window to pull off a combo seems incredibly tight on this. Just to do string two light attacks together requires a quick fire double tap.

    I have no idea how to do the tutorial I mentioned above, which then requires a 180 degree pad swivel and medium attack in about .005 seconds. I'm too old for this shit :(

    I was willing to give this a miss, but now I'm tempted to get it seeing as it's reviewed well enough and a few EG'ers have bought/are buying it.

    Tom, there's shortcuts in the game, so you can still use a 6-buttoner.


    from SRK:

    Will there be button shortcuts?
    For those playing on an 5-6 button arcade stick there are shortcuts you can take advantage of. For example 1+2 = interact with background objects, 2+4+6 = supermove, and 1+3 = throw. So if someone wants to, they can play using a PDP Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Edition stick, Mortal Kombat Tournament stick, or any custom made traditional 6 button layout and won’t have problems.
