"Luigi’s Mansion"? More like, "Luigi’s Dancin’"!
Because I love to say words.
Wow, this is fuckin’ hilarious.
I seriously don’t know if it’s the best or the worst thing I’ve ever seen.
Better/worse than this?
I don’t think you understand my feelings at all if you think a faithful adaptation of Adam West Batman is at all comparable to this… thing.
Adam West Batman is Adam West Batman. Putting an unshaven, too-cool-for-the-room Frank Miller-esque dude in that costume is definitely something else. I can’t decide if someone didn’t know what the hell they were doing or knew exactly what the hell they were doing.
Since this is a skin for one of the Arkham games, I’m gonna go with they “knew what they were doing”
this is literally the greatest thing I’ve seen all day
I love it more than this Evil Emperor Zurg barf outfit.
Are you seriously arguing about a DLC skin for Arkham Origins? Like, it’s a skin for the character, not actually Adam West.
You say it like it goes against everything ever put down into lore as if it is the bible of what we may never ever, ever do ever because that is not the character “YOU” know and love.
It’s not like it’s some sacrilegious “they’ve ruined Batman and the history of comics” thing.
Besides, if you have to complain, complain to the 90’s for the Knightfall outfit seen above. My only saving grace is Bruce never wore that.
Apparently my original post was some sort of crazy Rorchach test where everyone in the world sees their own amazingly stupid thing I never actually said but they really really wanted me to have said so they can win a dumb argument I never started.
Well, congratulations, everyone. You all tie for dumbth place.
I missed all this glory just ‘cuz I was reading up on the Atlas Shrugged Kickstarter? GOD DAMNIT!
I look forward to play as the Adam West Batman. I will personally yell “POW!” and “WHAM!” every time I take down an enemy.
So the new Pokémon X and Y trailer is alright. I gotta say though, I feel like they’re really giving us a lot of filler content here.
I mean, riding a Pokémon through a city street? Boring.
Fun new trainer designs and an aesthetically pleasing environment? How droll.
New, beautiful 3D graphics with a certain obsolete charm? Lame.
Tons of new Pokémon, quite a few of which actually look pretty neat? Snoresville.
3D battles that flow more smoothly and make an effort so it looks like that the Pokémon are actually fighting? Like, OMG, gag me with a spoon.
But then… I saw something beautiful.
JESUS GOAT-HUMPING CHRIST YOU CAN SIT ON A PARK BENCH!
Game of the Year. 8,000,006/10.
What a load of horseshit.
A man wears a trenchcoat. This is because trench coats are commonly associated with both the crime and espionage genres, meaning he’s a cop or some kind of government official. The coat is brown because it’s a nice color. His hair is spiky because it’s a JRPG, and a lot of the characters in JRPGs have spiky hair, especially the male ones. He uses the codename “Looker” because he is looking for and observing things, and also to protect his identity, because if he used his real name it would blow his cover and compromise his mission.
I get it, I really do. The outfits are similar, and neither uses their real name, and they both want to stop a space-time anomaly from occurring. But people are trying to force a connection where I don’t believe there is one. It’s not like Professor Paradox from Ben 10, who’s an obvious homage to the Doctor. These are just superficial similarities.
Until somebody from Nintendo comes out and says that Looker is based on the Doctor, I’m not buying it. Did You Know Gaming is great when they share actual facts, not fan theories.
A complaint I have about Injustice is that all the DLC costumes and unlockable stuff seems to go to a handful of A-listers, with one or two deviations. Every character has their Regime or Insurgency alts, but then there are a handful of characters that have bonus costumes, with most of them getting left behind. As such, here are my suggestions for everybody to get another costume, even the guys who already have a ton, because hey, I’m just having fun here. Also, because I was discussing it with a friend, how about an alternate Lantern Corps outfit for every character?
Aquaman: His traditional look. Label it as classic or New 52 or whatever, but the armor he wears in the game is a bit grand for my tastes. His Flashpoint costume’s pretty close to what he usually looks like, but I’d like the normal look for him.
-Lantern Corps: Red. This is because he’s both an aggressive guy, and his wife, Mera, was a Red Lantern during Blackest Night.
Ares: His New 52 look would be amazing.
-Lantern Corps: Red. He’s the god of war. Why wouldn’t he be all about rage?
Bane: I’d like to see a costume inspired by his appearance in The Dark Knight Rises.
-Lantern Corps: Sinestro Corps. Bane utilizes fear very effectively.
Batman: Adam West.
-Lantern Corps: None. Disqualified. He’s already got his Black Lantern outfit. But if I had to pick one, I’d forgo the traditionally thought-of Sinestro Corps and go Green instead, like in Darkest Night.
Black Adam: Shazam has his New 52 look in the game, why not Black Adam?
-Lantern Corps: Sinestro Corps. Black Adam rules through fear.
Catwoman: Batman: The Animated Series look.
-Lantern Corps: Orange. You think a master thief isn’t greedy?
Cyborg: New 52 look.
-Lantern Corps: Green. It takes will to go through such a major adjustment like Cyborg has.
Deathstroke: Classic outfit.
-Lantern Corps: Indigo. The Indigo Tribe would totally recruit the compassionless assassin for indoctrination.
Doomsday: Superdoom from Grant Morrison’s Action Comics is kinda neat.
-Lantern Corps: Red. Dude’s all about anger and violence.
The Flash: Reverse Flash.
-Lantern Corps: Blue, because he was a Blue Lantern in Blackest Night.
Green Arrow: Classic look. Feathered cap, please.
-Lantern Corps: Indigo. I think it’s because the bow and arrow thing goes well with the tribal motif.
Green Lantern: I’d like to play as Hal in his bomber jacket, but still using the ring.
-Lantern Corps: White.
Harley Quinn: ORIGINAL OUTFIT. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, ORIGINAL OUTFIT.
-Lantern Corps: Star Sapphire. Love is what turned her to crime in the first place.
Hawkgirl: New 52 Earth 2 Hawkgirl. I love her design.
-Lantern Corps: Red. Hawkgirl is a warrior from a warrior race.
The Joker: Death of the Family. That would be wonderfully horrifying to see in 3D.
-Lantern Corps: Sinestro Corps. Joker is SCARY.
Killer Frost: DCAU design. I mean, they already have Jennifer Hale voicing her.
-Lantern Corps: Indigo Tribe. Like Deathstroke, she has no compassion.
Lex Luthor: Let’s go with the classic Super Friends armor.
-Lantern Corps: Orange. He was one in Blackest Night.
Nightwing: Dick Grayson’s Batman outfit. That’d be fun.
-Lantern Corps: Blue. Dick Grayson tends to inspire those around him.
Raven: This look, with actual human skin color.
-Lantern Corps: Green. Resisting her father’s power takes a lot of will.
Shazam: I’d actually like to see the Flashpoint Captain Thunder version of the character.
-Lantern Corps: Blue. Billy Batson is practically the living embodiment of hope.
Sinestro: His Green Lantern outfit.
-Lantern Corps: White.
Solomon Grundy: Earth 2 avatar of the Grey Grundy.
-Lantern Corps: Black. He actually was one for a while.
Superman: Superman Beyond.
-Lantern Corps: Blue. Big Blue’s all about hope.
Wonder Woman: Earth 3’s Superwoman.
-Lantenrn Corps: Star Sapphire. She was one in Blackest Night.
So yeah, those are just some of my thoughts.
From this week’s Injustice: Gods Among Us Chapter 9. This video game tie-in comic has been phenomenal. Every single week has just impressed me so much. It has definitely gotten me more hyped up than the battle arena, and I totally plan to do a review of it sometime in the future. Tom Taylor and Jheremy Raapack have created a fantastic Elseworlds tale.
