The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Come out of the Shadows for Injustice 2

I had no idea what to expect for the final Injustice 2 DLC pack. Well, that’s not entirely true: I expected The Atom to be a part of it, but the rest came out of left field, especially the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

As with the previous Injustice 2 DLC announcement, NetherRealm Studios seems to have learned its lessons from the first DLC video and is making its trailers more dynamic and entertaining. Instead of just staring each other down in a black void, now the characters actively fight in a warehouse. Well, The Atom fights at least, and he apparently defeats Raiden, Black Manta, and Hellboy rather easily. As one might expect, the warehouse then explodes, and The Atom finds himself face to face with Enchantress (you remember her, the main villain from Suicide Squad). And then the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come out of nowhere and join the fight. Yes, the heroes in a half shell are in Injustice 2; if Hellboy made it into the game, why not the TMNT as well?

While we already know how The Atom will fight thanks to an announcement trailer that was released before Hellboy’s trailer, we are completely in the dark regarding Enchantress’ and the TMNT’s playstyles. Apparently all four of the turtles will be in the game, but we do not know how they will function. Can players actually pick their favorite turtle, or will we only be limited to one (likely Leonardo)? Will the other turtles take the form of special moves, or will they only appear in the super move? So many questions, so little information.

Gamers who want to play as The Atom, Enchantress, or the TMNT will either have to purchase the Fighter Pack 3 or the Inustice 2 Ultimate Edition. While The Atom will be available via early access on December 12th (which is apparently two days before the release of the PC version) we do not know when Enchantress or the turtles will be added to the game. Still, this is one surprise I’m glad I didn’t see coming.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is getting closer and closer, and Activision has announced when players will be able to get their hands on the next game.

Call of Duty Early Access will run from Friday, August 30th, to Wednesday, September 4th, as announced on its blog. This is two days after the Call of Duty Next showcase, which is set for August 28th. To play, you must have already bought Black Ops 6.

The open beta is the following weekend, and anyone who wants to can join. The fun will start on Friday, September 6th, and end on Monday, September 9th. The full release is set for October 25th of next month on PS5 and PS4.

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.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
