Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC; Batgirl reveal trailer

This Tuesday, the long-awaited first batch of DLC for “Injustice: Gods Among Us” was released. Gamers and fans got to play as the alien bounty hunter Lobo and two packs of skins became available as well.

Before the game was even released, NetherRealm Studios teased that four DLC characters will be available throughout the year. Lobo was the first and they revealed Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) to be the second.

Well, finally we get to see her in action as the gaming studio unveiled her gameplay in a nifty little trailer that gave some background on the character — especially her relationship with the villainous Joker.

Speaking of the Joker, in the trailer we even get to see a new skin that will be available for the Clown Prince of Crime. The new skin will be from the graphic novel, “The Killing Joke” where he dons a Hawaiian shirt, shorts, sandals and a sun hat.

And it looks like that won’t be the only skin available when Batgirl is released. Ed Boon, the director of NetherRealm Studios, has said on his Twitter account that there will be more.

“Just WAIT till u see the skins BG comes with!” Boon said.

The time of this release is uncertain, but an announcement will be made soon, according to Boon.

So in the meantime, check out the gameplay trailer and tell us what you think of the character in the comments section below.

‘The Last of Us’ video game delayed until June

Upcoming horror/survival video game “The Last of Us” has been delayed. IGN reports that Sony has informed them the game’s original release date of May 7th, 2013 has been pushed back until June 14th, 2013.

Game developer Naughty Dog released this statement about the delay:

“As a team we pride ourselves on setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games – gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more. We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further – for ourselves, and most importantly, our fans.

“As we entered the final phase of development for The Last of Us, we came to realize just how massive Joel and Ellie’s journey is. But instead of cutting corners or compromising our vision, we came to the tough decision that the game deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards.”

“The Last of Us” takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where a fungal infection has turned most people into hive-minded, cannibalistic monsters (but not technically zombies, according to Naughty Dog). In the game, you play Joel, with Ellie as your invaluable partner in surviving the wasteland of what once was civilization.

Till Death do us part: ‘Dead Island’ hostos contest for zonbie-themed wedding

Video game developer Deep Silver is hosting a contest to win a zombie-themed wedding in honor of the upcoming release of “Dead Island: Riptide.”

Yes that’s right: now you can have the zombie wedding you always wanted! All you have to do is a) Be a really big fan of “Dead Island“, and b) record a video explaining why you and your fiance are the ideal undead candidates for a zombie wedding ceremony.

View slideshow: Zombie brides and grooms

From Deep Silver’s explanation of the contest:

“The search for two engaged ‘Dead Island’ superfans who will be zombified for a Dead Island twist on a traditional beach wedding ceremony takes in every cemetery, grave and crypt the length and breadth of the UK. In return for becoming the official Dead Island Riptide zombie bride and groom, Deep Silver will host a Dead Island Riptide-themed zombie wedding ceremony and send the winning undead couple on a luxury Caribbean honeymoon.”

So let’s review: you can win an all-expenses-paid beach wedding and Caribbean honeymoon… with zombies. Sounds pretty awesome, right? Y’know, as long as you’re an insanely dedicated fan of all things zombie.

Applicants are encouraged to record a short video message to YouTube explaining why they are the ideal undead candidates for the ceremony, and to share the link via the official “Dead Island: Riptide” Zombie Wedding page on Facebook.

“Dead Island: Riptide” is the follow-up to 2011’s wildly successful “Dead Island” zombie video game. It picks up right where “Dead Island” left off, with the four survivors stranded on the island of Palanai after it has been overrun by zombies. The wedding contest is a way to celebrate the release of “DI: Riptide.”

I suppose there are worse ways to interpret “till death do us part.”

Behold Verticus: Pow! Entertainment and Moonshark partner on superhero game app

Stan Lee gets his presentation on once more straight to digital media.

In app games, so the announcement goes.

Lee, who was 2012s Guest of Honor at the Baltimore Comic-Con, partners his Pow! Entertainment with Los Angeles-based Moonshark for the release of Verticus, an action thrilling game bound for the IPhone, IPad and IPod Touch.

The iOS game drops into availability on Nov. 15, and backdrops the imminence of Earth’s downfall due to the outgunning weaponry of the Lee-esque aliens The Obliterators.

Gameplay takes the user into playing a high-flying superhero with abilities from his bedecked futuristic jump suit. Gaming levels produce additional enhancements in tech-oriented abilities and weapons.

“Joining forces with the Moonshark team to create our first superhero app has been a tremendous pleasure,” said Stan Lee, Founder, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, POW! Entertainment, Inc. “Once you have a chance to play Verticus, you’ll be completely addicted to the game. It’s got a terrific storyline and, of course, an engaging narration by yours truly.”

Moonshark has been a mobile entertainment company with the popular DancePad with Jennifer Lopez since its start up in 2012. With CAA and Qualcomm backing the mobile publisher, Moonshark coproduces with A-List names to incorporate their tech concepts into play.

“No one else could have brought the sheer creativity and voiceover talents that Stan brings,” said Matt Kozlov, CEO of Moonshark. “Working closely with him, we’ve had the opportunity to create an authentic Stan Lee superhero experience, storyline and character, and we can’t wait for the world to help Verticus defeat the Obliterators.”

Pow! Entertainment holds Stan Lee as founder and CEO , and since 2001 has brought its original concepts to a transmedia platform.

Verticus was developed by Controlled Chaos Media out of Dallas.
