I want to get it at Best Buy for the $20 but I also want the Red Son pack. If they end up giving Batman his Red Son outfit I'll probably bite the bullet and go with GS. lol


I have to say thematically I like the Red Son ones the most, but the Arkham City skins looks the coolest. Granted we don't really get a good look at them.

Hmm, anyone following this one know what the missions are? The Red Sun thing or whatever seems like it will have story implications or something, but that $20 RZ cert is pretty great. Thinking back to MK there weren't really extra missions outside of the story mode, and I just figured that there would be standard story like in the recent MK and then the arcade mode with individual endings, but the mission thing makes it sound like I'm incorrect there.


Expect something similar to the challenge tower in the latest Mortal Kombat. Injustice has their own thing called Star Lab challenges, which operate on the same principle...use the in-game engine in as many creative ways as possible to create some unique gameplay.

Great thread! MKvDCU wasn't terribly, just decent although MK9 was great so looking forward to this game! FWIW, I've got a thread on SRK for the Battle edition (Gamestop exclusive). We're all trying to figure out which manufacturer will be used for the actual components on the stick:

damn, a zombie pack? thats cool. I'll end up getting it on amazon with the $25 in points i have, and just buy DLC that comes out namely because overall its still cheaper that way for me since the special edition will cost me $75. I doubt DLC packs are more than $5 each so even if i got zombie skins and red son, it'd still be cheaper, not to mention ill have $10 credit again after towards whatever i get next. if only i had more coupons for best buy.

oh well. i am very excited and cant wait to see what skins come out for the game, and seeing arkham costumes and zombie costumes is a very cool thing knowing we'll probably see a ton of costumes in this game.

Hmm.. but i DO have $10 to best buy currently...and i would get a $20 gift cert and 2x points... damn decision making!! Screw it, since one of my $5 certs ends on the 19th this month ill just get a best buy copy for $89.99 and save my amazon points for whatever my next game is. This thread is a blessing and a curse. lol

They'll be available as DLC later on. Just like all the costumes in MK9 that people payed mad bucks for were. Just like all the costumes in DoA5 that people payed 150+ dollars for were.

Don't get suckered. If you don't get the costumes at release, you WILL be able to get them later.

Shouldn't batman be making love to wonder woman instead?

They've been together in the comics/cartoons right?

They've never actually been together in any comics only in the Justice League cartoon and even then never even gotten to first base. Superman, however, is dating Wonder Woman in the New 52.

I purchased both MK TE & Klassic sticks & IMHO, the fit, finish & quality control is excellent even though it's made by PDP (formerly Pelican Accessories). Keep in mind, I'm an arcade joystick collector so that's saying alot! Alot of the hardcore MK guys were complaining the MK TE stick was blah because it used Zippy switches (instead of Cherry microswitches) & used the newer Suzo-Happ (instead of the original iL Euro) joystick lever. Then again, it's very easy to replace both buttons & joystick.

Yeah, only games I used these sticks were for MK9 & the Arcade Klassic's DLC (MK1, MK2 & UMK3) bundled in the Klassic stick. If I were you, I'd just order both the Battle edition & whatever other version you're debating on. Once you checkout some in-depth reviews of the arcade stick (or check it out in person), return one of the two versions you don't want assuming you don't open both before you make up your mind, LOL! They haven't confirmed how many they're going to make of these Battle editions so not sure how many (if any at all) each GS will have. FWIW, I was the only one person that ordered a Neo Geo X at my GS & that's the only one they received.

During the Greg Rucka run it was revealed that Wonder Woman had feelings for Bruce. This was made all the more true during Blackest Night when her sole regret was never telling Bruce (whom at the time was assumed dead) her feelings for him.

But yeah I like the coupling of Batman and Wonder Woman alot more then her and Supes.

Yeah, I understand that a few times they have shown the characters have feelings for each other but what I meant was that they never actually paired like Superman and Diana more recently. In the show it was a lot more obvious for both parties. Sucks really, I prefer her and Batman over Superman and WW more as well.

This game sounds pretty cool. Is this a straight 1 vs 1 fighting game, or does it have a "battle tower" like MK? :)

dont worry they will be available in the psn and xbox marketplace for free or small sum of money.

Mortal Kombat's DLCs and skins were eventually released for free over the summer after its release.

i honestly recommend you guys selling your Injustice DLCs on ebay when you get them. Like i said, i sold my 2 reptile skin DLCs for $240 total on ebay 2 years ago. people go cray over that stuff.

i personally think the red son dlc has the most value since it has a lot of content.

Yeah, I know. I still want them at release, though. I'm getting the CE from GS and will likely use all the DLC. I miiight sell my Red Son pack, but that's to be seen. I really wish they included Red Son Batman in the pack. He just looks too baller (my favorite DC Direct fig).

The preorder dlcs were released for free weren't they?

The classic skins?

The characters were too (or maybe not), but the classic costumes were free because I remember ed boon or someone at netherealm tweeted that people shouldn't be buying the skins from ebay since they were planning to release it in summer 2011. I remember that bright as day.

In case my previous posts were confusing, by dlc, I meant the preorder dlcs, which were the classic MK skins.
