Superman is Still a Super Jerk in Injustice 2

Superman is Still a Super Jerk in Injustice 2

Superhero fighting game sequel Injustice 2 is here and Superman is still being a super jerk. It's like he can't let go of that time when the Joker made him kill his wife and unborn child, which then triggered a nuke that destroyed Metropolis and killed millions more innocent civilians. Pretty melodramatic, I think you'll agree. So how about we head into story mode and kick him directly in his superbutt?

Prickly pears are the goal, and we'll need plenty if we're to reach the next rank of our survivalist challenge.

8 Cliffhanger Endings That Will Never Be Resolved, Thanks Videogames

8 Cliffhanger Endings That Will Never Be Resolved, Thanks Videogames

A cliffhanger ending is an unresolved ending that hopes to lure people back by promising they'll find out what happens next. Sometimes, however, that promise is a big fat lie, and you never find out what happens next because there was no sequel, the sequel got cancelled, or the sequel just went ahead and ignored the ending of the last game. Just remember all these times videogames did precisely that.

Show of the Week: The Surge and 5 Robots That Will Beat Your Ass in a Fist Fight

The Surge is a sci-fi action role-playing game in which robots have gone rogue and started attacking humans. I don't know why anyone is surprised, in my videogame experience, robots do very little but attack humans, as Mike discovers later in the show.

7 Times You Would Have Been Rescued But Helicopters

7 Times You Would Have Been Rescued But Helicopters

Helicopters in games crash as often as Windows Vista trying to sync iTunes because if you could just chopper your way out of trouble without crashing, most videogames would be eight minutes long. Just think of all the times you tried to helicopter your problems away, only you crashed because of course you did.

In this latest episode of Red Dead Redemption gameplay, we finally get to put our trojan cart plan into action and roll into Fort Mercer, all gatling guns blazing. Things don't go as smoothly as we'd hoped, though, leading to an impromptu trip to Mexico with everyone's favourite offensive national stereotype, Irish. If this is just an excuse for him to pick up some cheap bottles of tequila, we're going to be so mad, you guys.

Prey tells the story of Morgan Yu, a scientist on a space station overrun by mimics: horrible scuttling shadow monsters that disguise themselves as ordinary household objects to trick you into getting your face near them. That's far from the only time we've been tricked by shapeshifters in videogames, as we recollect later in the show.

Injustice 2 is a fighting game in which the fighting is all done by superheroes. It looks like fun, sure, but before you consider fighting a superhero yourself, bear in mind you will almost certainly be horribly killed. Or at least you will while they are all using moves like these.

Show of the Week: Outlast 2 and 5 Signs You Should GTFO Immediately

Outlast 2 follows investigative journalist Blake Langermann who is investigating the murder of a woman in the Arizona desert when he runs into a cult, and things go all Outlast 1. Blake does ignore all the warning signs to get out of there immediately, though, such as spooky crows, weird religious art, and corpses, so this is partially his own doing. This is the case with many other videogame heroes, we discover later in the show.

Not all games stand idly by when you act like a jerk for no reason, as anyone who's beaten up a chicken in a Zelda game can tell you. Some skip the standard morality meter in favour of direct punishment, as in The Warriors, Banjo Kazooie, Resident Evil 4 and Spelunky. Consider the karmic smackdowns in the following video, and be warned.
