Injustice: Gods Among Us Announced

Man oh man, is THIS quite the surprise: WB and NetherRealm Studios just announced a brand new DC Universe fighter by the name of Injustice: Gods Among Us. Check out the trailer right here on Only Single Player: Injustice: Gods Among Us – Announcement Trailer

Helmed by legendary director Ed Boon, Injustice will feature iconic characters including (but hopefully not limited to): Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn and Solomon Grundy, all redesigned in exciting new ways by the folks over at NetherRealm.

It’s no secret that the game boasts a system pretty close to the 2D formula from last year’s genre-defining ninth installment in the popular brutal fighting series, Mortal Kombat. Injustice isn’t without ability to stand alone however; right from the start you can tell there’s going to be some brutal attacks that only get bigger and better the more powerful the hero or villain you choose, an example being Superman sending Flash flying into atmosphere, chasing him up, and then double axe handling him down Dragon Ball Z-style into the stage below.

In a GameSpot Interview about the game, Boon said that each level will be approached in different ways strategically, depending on the character you choose. For example: while power characters like Wonder Woman and Superman may throw cars and slam them into their opponent, weaker characters like Batman may open the door of the car to hide behind it, and then proceed to rip said door off to do damage to his enemy. Though I’m not sure how “weak” Batman will really be, as he’s seen kicking Solomon Grundy into the sky…and through a tall building? I would ask how that’s possible, but we all know the answer: he’s Batman.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is scheduled to release on Wii U, 360 and PS3 sometime next year. For more news on this game check out The Official Site or tune in here to Only Single Player

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
