    Don't be so cynical, comic book games have a great track record. Batman did good and there was....there was....wolverine's revenge?

    It looks interesting. I wonder how they're going to explain Batman being able to kick Solomon Grundy through a building.

    Rage!!!! Yellow eyes!!!!

    Looks like Bats is wearing a mechanical suit.

    I'll probably get it, but I'm not exactly gung ho about it.

    The Spiderman games were great. Hulk was pretty good too.

    Since Netherrealm is involved, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt before I pass judgement. The last Mortal Kombat was a home run, so hopefully they load this game up with a shit ton of unlockables and special modes.

    Useless until we see actual game footage and not a computer rendered cartoon.

    15 minutes of gameplay. A little rough on the edges, but likely will be much smoother in 2013.



    I like what I see. I'm getting it!

    Doesn't look like you're rewarded much for winning a fight. Hope they make it more exciting. Right now it just looks like Mortal Kombat without the payoff of a Fatality.

    My wife said the same thing about it. Great graphics though. Love the armored costumes they're all wearing.

    I saw Ed Boon on the SDCC convention floor talking about this game, but didn't have a chance to see footage. People seemed to be into it.

    Just heard about this. The concept of the story sounds good (isn't it sorta Earth III though?) but have zero interest in that type of gameplay.

    Looks like the final fight from The Dark Knight Returns.

    I didnt really enjoy DC vs MK so not sure whether to get it or not. Boon said violence is toned down but there will be lots of action dunno what to think of that since the DC characters in the MK game were terrible

    So the more I see of this game, the more I want it.

    Why is it when Batman is typed in, it auto links to Amazon?

    It looks more like the JLU Justice Lords episodes with a dash of Kingdom Come. If it's half as good as either of those this will be fucking great.

    I loved JLU... damn good cartoon series. I recall A Better World, the episode you're referring to; I remember thinking to myself, that's what these dudes should be doing, laying the smackdown hard on anyone stepping out of line. Good deal.

    (Before we start ranting and raving about constitutional rights, let's keep in mind, it's a cartoon and they don't have to follow real world rules!)

    Yes, it also had a great moment with the two batmans

    after watching secret police take a guy away because he complained about the service at a restaurant

    Normal Batman to JL Batman - "Mom and Dad would be so proud of us."
