    @Your-Mother its not really a redesign, he has had loads of different looks in the comics. Also you arent stuck with that head as one of his looks is wearing a ripped batman mask covered in blood.

    It is a redesign since its a different guy. AFAIK, everyone who died in the story mode of the first one does not return in this one (I stand to be corrected on that) but you cant have a batman without a joker so...

    Also for people who cannot remember button sequences to execute combo's:

    Just what the fuck do you think a fighting game is?

    Pffft learning the moves is for pussys. I just use my cat like reflexes and natural talent to win the day.

    Story spoilers: Technically it's supposed to be the deceased joker from Injustice 1 in the form of a hallucination from Harley brought on by Scarecrow's fear gas.

    But yes. The floppy fringe and gigantic collared coat look stupid.

    Some of the faces are totally out of place. I've mentioned it before, but this isn't what superman looks like

    Analog sticks mess up your inputs a bit, you are far better off with a dpad. Quite often with the stick you think you are hitting down then right but the reality is you are missing it. As you play more it will become more fluid for you, there are much better players than me here though so someone like nick or riv would be far more helpful than me. Get away from button mashing as soon as you can though as you wont get any better by playing riverdance on the pad.
    Thanks.

    I'm really wanting to get on with it, I think it looks great. Just finding it so frustrating to map the moves to memory. My son is enjoying it at the moment, I'll have another go later...

    Had a few games to get rid of, so picked this up for the grand amount of 99p (ignoring the trades).

    So far enjoying, certainly much more than the first one which I didn't really click with.

    Black Canary so far my go to character.

    So they've learned nothing from the appalling way Deathstroke was designed last time and made Deadshot do exactly the same thing.

    PS Darkseid is disappointingly slow across the board.

    Anyone know how Guild loot boxes work?

    Are they better than non Guild boxes? What does being in a guild even mean?

    Im legitimately impressed with the story mode. It is just a series of excuses for people to punch each other, but its done as well as it can be. And Jeffrey Combs!

    Ive only played the story and spent a few minutes farting around in practice but so far, im digging blue beetle. He seems pretty fun.

    Aquaman has had a bit of a nerf. His main combo extender now needs meter burning and the timing of from the deep has changed but he still seems pretty strong.

    And Green Arrow doesnt really seem to have changed at all. You cant combo out of his ultra but you can meter burn the spinny thing, so I guess thats a buff?

    Overall, v impressed.

    Yeah the story really was nicely done. People give Nether realm grief for their dlc policy but they do pack a load of content into the game even if you decide not to buy any of it.

    @captainmarkyboy just stick to one character to begin with. Blue beetle is very friendly for new players as is catwoman. Their agility and speed helps a lot.

    Re: Darkseid, he is slow but he has really good zoning abilities and a teleport. That jumping smash he does is very useful as well.

    I was really looking forward to trying out brainiac after fighting him in the story but i dont seems to have the skills the ai does with him.

    @Frogofdoom Brainiac is also severely nerfed from what he does as a boss. Not sure what moves he loses but he also packs far less of a punch and some of his other stuff doesn't combo like it does in boss form.

    I like fighters and I have been tempted by this, and I don't want to be that guy, but I hate the art style.

    Superman has been mentioned before but the whole thing looks like that Nicholas Cage Superman film that never happened. It's tacky.

    I will hold out for Tekken or Arms I think.

    Darkseid's teleport is too slow.

    I don't get why these games always include moves that are functionally useless. He simply cannot recover quick enough to react in time, which makes the whole thing pointless. the only time you'd ever use it is when you're miles away from the opponent which means you telegraph it badly.

    Its useful against deadshots sustained burst fire and the likes though as it allows you to punish it every time they use it.

    I am completely stuck on one of the multiverse missions. It's the most nonsensical modifier where if you are launched you float about like an idiot. I hate this shit with a fire. These stupid modifiers really spoil the experience and of course the AI just combos you for days and you lose, repeatedly. Fun. Not

    What they keep doing to Wonder Woman does kind of tick me off.

    The balance is very slightly out of whack in that most teleports need a hard read rather than a reaction but if they didnt, everyone would be complaining that teleports were broken, like they did with scorpion flying around like a cunt in the last one.

    Perhaps, but it does make the move a bit too risky to rely on.

    I also always forget to use his trait. It's difficult incorporating it into moves and combos.

    I feel so dirty spamming out omega beams all the time though :D

    So where are all the cool guilds then?

    And does anyone know what gold credits are for?

    I joined some random guild, logged in this morning and got about 15 guild boxes. Was quite please with that. I do struggle with the 4 bar ai enemies though, 3 is too easy but 4 is tricky for my limited skills. Means im struggle with the guild metaverse challenges.

    I think the time limits might be too short on some of these multiverse events as there's quite a lot too them.

    I'm sure I have the first injustice via ps plus but never played it. I'm enjoying this so far but how does it compare to the original? I'm just wondering whether it's worth keeping if im just an occasional player and whether the original will just float my boat just the same?
