In a fighting game, especially those with characters that have established histories and fan bases like the DC-skinned Injustice 2, everyone will have their favorite characters. As much as you might want to play certain heroes, the reality of the fighting game meta is that certain characters will generally come out on top given equal skill. That’s not to say that a skilled fighter can’t take one of the weaker characters and really make them shine, but going with characters that just have plain better stats for your playstyle may give you that little edge you need to keep on top of the game. We’ve compiled a list (courtesy of vg247) of the best Injustice 2 characters over a variety of categories so you can match your playstyle to the best characters available.

Strength

Strength determines the damage each character does with their basic attacks. Obviously gear can boost these stats, but this list shows the top-tier champions by base stats alone. Choose a character on this list if you want to pummel people to death.

  • Atrocitus
  • Bane
  • Darkseid
  • Gorilla Grodd
  • Scarecrow

Ability

This list represents the Injustice 2 characters with the highest Ability score. While Strength determines the power of basic attacks, Ability represents the power of special attacks. Go with an Ability character if you want your damage to come mainly from your unique attacks rather than basic kicks and punches.

  • Aquaman
  • Atrocitus
  • Bane
  • Batman
  • Black Adam
  • Black Canary
  • Blue Beetle
  • Brainiac
  • Captain Cold
  • Catwoman
  • Cheetah

As important as being able to beat down your foes is, staying alive through your foe’s onslaught in Injustice 2 is also crucial. The next two categories will give you a sense of the beefiest characters that will let you last as long as possible in the ring.

Defense

Defense determines how much damage you take while blocking. This list should give you an idea of the best blockers in the game.

  • Aquaman
  • Black Adam
  • Brainiac
  • Cyborg
  • Firestorm
  • Green Lantern
  • Supergirl
  • Superman
  • Swamp Thing
  • Wonder Woman

Health

This final category shows the characters with the highest health pools. After all, if you health bar in Injustice 2 is totally depleted, you lose. Picking a character with higher health is a good idea – especially if you’re newer to the fighting genre.

The top health pool in the game goes to Darkseid. No other Injustice 2 character matches him in this category, but in the interest of variety and lists we’ve included the second tier too.

  • Atrocitus
  • Bane
  • Batman
  • Captain Cold
  • Catwoman
  • Deadshot
  • Doctor Fate
  • Gorilla Grodd
  • Green Arrow
  • Harley Quinn
  • Joker
  • Poison Ivy
  • Scarecrow

You’ll notice that many characters are featured more than once on these lists, some are featured many times. While there’s more in Injustice 2 tiers than simple base stats, it’s definitely a consideration. If you really have no favorites, maybe try going with a hero featured on multiple of our tier lists and see where that gets you. Are you guys enjoying Injustice 2?

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
