Tuesday Chat - April 16


It's Tuesday, which gives us around three days before this week's new releases get their official release.

This week we can look forward to Injustice: Gods Among Us and Fire Emblem: Awakening (we'll try to review both of these games as soon as we can). Both games certainly look like they have potential, but what we want to know is if you have pre-ordered any of them and if so, why you are looking forward to them.

Let's Chat below.

Because it's Fire Emblem do I need any reason more?

I don't know anything about Fire Emblem, It's not even on my radar! haha! I am really looking forward to Injustice, but as is the way, it's just a fighting game after all, there will be a cheaper goatee edition in a few months, that'll be the way to go for me I'm afraid!

Just got my payment confirmation for Fire Emblem. (used my points that I won too so was cheaper.) Why? It's Fire Emblem which is enough in itself. But also the fact that it's been given glowing reviews from pretty much everyone after it's release in America.

Er, as far as I can find out the first DLC character announced for Injustice is "Lobo" not sure why but i guess he is a fan favourite. I still have hope for Martian Manhunter but some people have scrutinised the credits and proposed from the unknown voice credits that we will be getting Batgirl, Poison Ivy and Scorpion. Not sure of the likelihood or truth to these rumours but I might as well put it up

Fire Emblem. I liked the demo of Injustice but it doesn't have Batwoman on the character list. If she was in it, I would have pre-ordered. But Fire Emblem.....so excited for that! I just love that kind of game.

I aint really got into American comics. There are some really nice character designs in some of them but never really got into them.

Same here. I want to but I just can't get into them

I'm gonna make a bold statement here: DC is better than Marvel
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Pyroloveridge 4 years ago
Bold statement, I really enjoy both universes but tend to follow artists and writers rather than characters. Still I think I'm more inclined to lean towards marvel, that's where is tarted though I only made the transition to DC a few years back

The Green Lantern comics are some of my favourites, Sinestro Corps is a brilliant arc
Pyroloveridge's avatar

agreed, i like GL didn't think much to the red lanterns. Blackest night is a great red

i loved the demo of injustice in all fairness so that went straight on the love film list, im banned from buying games by the wife because we have a holiday coming up and a baby which means i cant even get fire emblem which im really excited for until that drops in price :-( life is so unfair!

If they were to make a Nightwing movie it should have Chris O'Donnell playing Nightwing.

Chris O'Donnell was the best Robin. He lasted 2 Batmans.

Got Injustice and Fire Emblem on my rental list, should have both of them by Saturday. Not sure about FE, but may as well give it a go, Injustice looks great though, now all we need is for Netherrealm to team up with Capcom and bring us Marvel vs DC.

I've had Fire Emblem pre-paid for since it was available to do so. The series is one of hte best, and turn-based strategys are THE best games for handhelds imo.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
And in the case of DC > Marvel, Marvel wins every time. Batman is obviously the best superhero, but Iron Man comes close. Superman is too overpowered, and the rest of the casts, Marvel outdoes DC.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Superman is as powerful as he needs to be, That is why i'm not interested in him. That and his greatest weakness is a little green rock
Robichoico's avatar
Robichoico 4 years ago
wow awesome. Fire Emblem just got dispatched. Wasn't expecting it till Thursday but may well be here tomorrow.
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Actually his greatest weaknesses are magic and solar eclipses.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
I know I know I was just making a joke
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Besides, at least the DC heroes have weaknesses. Pretty much every Marvel hero is unstoppable and therefore needs a villain of equal unstoppable-ness.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Spidermans greatest weakness is small knives XD
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Spiderman's greatest weakness is that he pulls his punches... he is proportionally strong enough to make a man's head explode
0000000000's avatar
0000000000 4 years ago
the small knives line in the amazing spiderman is pure genius! i have to say batman is my all time favourite superhero, but i love spiderman, ironman basically all the avengers! u cant actually beat a good superhero movie/comic book/game! love it

You can when the game is called Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Yes, by locking him in a vat of jello forever
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Pyroloveridge 4 years ago
actually really enjoyed that game
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
WTF
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
The Dark Knight, when Batman says "You'll be in a padded cell forever" sounds kinda like "You'll be in a vat of jello forever"

Deathbattle: Spiderman vs Batman on Screwattack....funny stuff
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Pyro did you really like Rise of the Manhunters?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
All the Deathbattles are great but Pikachu vs Blanka. I took that one right in the childhood
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
And having a villian of equal unstoppableness makes the grand picture that much better. No point having crap villians that can't do much.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Marvel have Fin Fang Foom. Nuf said

Nox - I enjoyed it, at the time. I'll never play it again and can't really remember much about it other than i though it was ok when i played it
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Nobody remembers the crap villains (more than half are Fantastic 4 ones), but some of the best are the ones that aren't capable of destroying the entire east coast of the US by just thinking. Ironically the greatest of villains is actually Dr. Doom.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Good I thought I would have to slap you upside the head and give you a copy of Ultimate SpiderMan & Arkham Asylum
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Pyroloveridge 4 years ago
I have 1000g'd both of those and played batman 7 times now i think... and they are both in my permanent collection
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Arkham Asylum was so good they HAD to make a sequel... the sequel lacked the same charm though
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Not played Arkham City yet. I really should

Ultimate Spiderman is the best Spiderman game, I'm not really keen on the Ultimate universe, but when the game is that good I don't mind it.
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Marvel Ultimate Alliance had a fantastic story arc and was a pretty fun game to play.
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Pyroloveridge 4 years ago
I like most of them and I play them all, Ultimate Alliance was top notch.. 2 was shit. Ultimate spiderman was brilliant, all three Beenox ones were good too IMO.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
X-Men Legends 2 : Rise of Apocalypse
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
The Beenox games score points for being based on the comics rather than the films, but they messed around with other realities too much. I'd much rather have juts a solid Spiderman story based in the 616 universe, like the old PS1 games, they were fantastic for stories.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Like Spideman : Enter Electro. Was a great game (Don't think it would hold up too well)
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
The first one was better, how can you not love Carnage Octopus, but the gameplay wouldn't hold up now, sure, just give us something like Ultimate Spiderman in the 616 universe, than I'd be happy.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

I loved Shattered Dimensions. My favourite Spiderman game.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
TBH I can't remember mush about them both anyway, I was 7-8 when I played them. After reading up on them I find out they had a ''What If? mode'' This is why old games are awesome, these day that would be DLC

Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

What turtles game?

Out of the Shadows, it's an arcade title coming out later in the year

sounds good pyro, its based on the new cartoon nox! XBLA game due out in the summer, video was on the dashboard last week and the news was on here a few months back!

Wasn't Total Recall the film Red Faction was based on/
troublemaker's avatar

'Twas one of it's main influences, yeah.
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Red Faction was based on Total Recall and some other classic futuristic sci-fi films
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
That just makes it funnier, a film based on a game based on a film, probably some B movie crap, but I'll probably give it a watch.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Still better than a game based on a movie based on a game
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 4 years ago
A film, based on a game, based on a film, that was based on a book, that was NOTHING LIKE THE BOOK! I may have to watch the film to see just how bad it is!

looks like a cross between Ultimate Electro and the version from Shattered Dimensions
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar

Electro is one of my favorite Spiderman villains but that just looks like more like Mr. Freeze or Dr. Manhattan

That just looks awful, Jamie Foxx was a bad choice for Electro, but they could have made it work, sadly it looks like they haven't even tried.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Personally I think if they are going to not stay faithful to the character they should have just went for a Shocker and Scorpion Combo. How could you mess them two up
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
The problem with a Shocker and Scorpion combo is you would need to add Vulture and Rhino
Pyroloveridge's avatar
Pyroloveridge 4 years ago
Scorpion and Rhino were in the game is than canon to the movie?
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
They're obviously going for a darker version of spider-man, with his humour still remaining. A guy with lightning bolt mask just doesn't scream 'scary' or 'intimidating' at all. It will work in comic books, but not in movies.
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
The story on that last game was awful, adding in any old animal themed enemies as a by product of the Lizard, just stupid.
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
A large portion of Spiderman villains are animal themed, and in a universe where Spot and Tombstone exist I'd rather see the animal themed ones to be honest.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 4 years ago
Aw Tombstone that brings back memory's. Also me me remember Hydroman & Kingpin
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 4 years ago
Hydroman and Sandman teamed up and made Mud Thing... awesome
Dead's avatar
Dead 4 years ago
Yes, lots of Spiderman villains are animal themed, but it's just lazy witing to extrapolate so many of them from just one. Mud Thing was just silly, never reckoned much on Hydroman either, he was just a cheap knock off of Sandman.

Need to find something better to do when i fins myself watching Jeremy Kyle. Injustice looks good but 0 funds and already have Dead Island pre-ordered and paid for. Got a nice little bet on for tonight though so everybody fingers crossed for me and i can play Injustice for you guys!! Btw Zak i've bet against Wolves.... :P

I know Gloria :( MY gf's choice though to be fair, I'll get her back with football later :P Sounds good Dynamite, I have an 8 fold, Arsenal, Watford, Hull, Yeovil, Mansfield, Newport, Grimsby and wrexham. And i have a 14 fold one with minimum returns of 8k, Doubt that will win though :P

Fire Emblem looks cool, but still not got a 3DS. Probably will try to afford one + Fire Emblem this year. :>
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
Yeah, they never do come in, but you always read about these people that get them so ;) My girlfriends father in law got one up a week before the wedding for 16k. Best thing was that the goal that won him it was a Stoke goal that should never have been counted after the player (Forgot who) kicked it out the keepers hands. They'd been struggling so got to go on a honeymoon and had all the wedding sorted and everything. - I'm not touching Arsenal tonight though as I want an Everton win so Spurs get ECL :P

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
