New Injustice 2 Trailer


Injustice 2 is hitting stores May 16 of this year. Today Injustice released a trailer going into more depth about the games story. The game takes place after the events of the first with the heroes divided between two factions: those who want to repair the damage caused by Superman’s rule and those who want to see him back in power. According to the newest trailer, it looks as if forces from outer space will involve themselves as well. We already know Super-girl and Red Lantern Atrocitous will be joining the cast, but this trailer also reveals that Braniac is going to be involved in the game’s events too. Also, if you preorder, you gain access to DARKSEID!



Four Horsemen Studios tease Mythic Legions 2.0 Kickstarter

Four Horsemen Studios has teased their fans with a video letting us know about a Kickstarter campaign for the next offering of Mythic Legions action figures. The Kickstarter is slated to start January 27th, 2017, titled Mythic Legions 2.0: Advent of Decay.

This Kickstarter will likely feature many of the figures we saw at SDCC 2016. That display can be seen below in a photo from ToyArk’s coverage. Notably, most of the figures in this display are female, which should help supplement the current all male line-up.

In addition, one of the Horsemen posted a picture on Facebook showing off the Mythic Legions Trolls in packaging next to a normal size figure. The Trolls are in their warehouse and being prepped for shipment.

$20 Game of the Week: Ridiculous Fishing (iOS, Android)

Ridiculous_Fishing_cropped_logoVlambeer’s (Super Crate Box, Luftrausers) 2013 mobile fishing game, which is an enhanced version of the company’s flash browser game Radical Fishing, is perhaps more famous for the developer’s battle with the developer of a cloned game. To make a long story short, shortly after beginning work on a mobile version, developer Gamenauts released Ninja Fishing, an game that had a similar style of play. The game became an instant success, and this discouraged the developers to a point where they temporarily scrapped the project. However, after winning awards for their game Super Crate Box, the team decided to scrap everything and rebuild Ridiculous Fishing. Thankfully the game was a success, and is one of the best games available on mobile platforms.

Double Dragon 4 Coming to PS4 and Windows 10 In January 2017!

Double Dragon used to be one of gaming’s biggest franchises during the Nintendo era. It spawned a movie, comic book, an action figure line, and animated series. However, since its heyday, it’s been outsourced to different companies for re-releases and remakes. A few years ago we got the all new game Double Dragon Neon from Majesco/Wayforward which was fairly well received. However, Arc Systems Works (Blazblue, Guilty Gear) now holds the rights to the franchise, and next month they’re releasing Double Dragon 4 for PS4 and Windows 10. This game’s direction looks like it’s inspired by the NES games rather than the arcade originals, as the sprites and backgrounds will have an 8-bit look, similar to Mega Man 9 and 10. The game will feature single player and co-op modes as well as Japanese text. Old school fans are gonna wanna check this out when it hits on January 30.

Classic Sega Games Coming to TV?

Correction: We incorrectly identified the Michael Hurst who directed The House of the Dead 2 as the Michel Hurst who directed Spartacus and Ash vs the Evil Dead. There are actually 2 Michael Hursts, and the one this article refers to has directed such straight to dvd classics such as Room 6 and The Baby Juice Express.

In 2014, Sega announced plans to expand into TV and Films. We already know that Sega is planning a live action/CG Sonic the Hedgehog film. Now according to Variety, we’ve learned that Sega is planning TV shows based on Altered Beast and Streets of Rage. Stories International, Sega’s multimedia wing, is partnering with Circle of Confusion (Feat the Walking Dead, Powers, Dirk Gently) to create tv shows based upon the two properties. Altered Beast was an arcade game that hit the Genesis as a pack-in game. Playing as a resurrected warrior, players gain the ability to kill demons and absorb their essences to mutate into animal forms. Streets of Rage was a popular beat-em-up franchises starring a group of undercover cops attempting to clean up the city.

Sega is also attempting to bring several other franchises to tv and film, including Virtua Fighter, Crazy Taxi, Shinobi, Golden Axe, and House of the Dead. Coincidentally, House of the Dead was Sega’s first attempt at bringing its franchises to the screen. Uwe Boll directed the disastrous 2003 film while Michael Hurst (Room 6, The Baby Juice Express) directed 2005’s even worse straight to dvd sequel. After that debacle, Sega can’t go anywhere but up. However when it comes to movies based on games, past experiences haven’t exactly filled us with confidence.
