Doc Drills down on Injustice’s Lobo Now Available as DLC


Before Injustice: Gods Among Us was released, NetherRealm studios announced that they would be adding several new characters to the roster over a few months following launch. While not announcing who these new fighters would you were given a choice of either season pass, which has become the normal or purchase of the up coming characters individually. The season pass being roughly the cost three characters individually.

Since Injustice’s release, the first character is now available. Lobo, otherwise known as The Main Man, is a relatively unknown in his origin, but popular character that has been featured in many comic books since his creation in the 1980′s. He originally manifested in the Green Lantern universe.

A standout of this game is the mass amount of single player content and seamless integration of story and arcade battles. Injustices also has 250 S.T.A.R Labs missions but if you were hoping that Lobo’s addition would include any more single player content prepare for disappoint.

While Lobo does include a short ending for completing Classic Battle, and he is added to the opponents you will face in Battle Mode, there are no additional S.T.A.R Labs missions, no extra story content and, surprisingly, not even a second costume or a character model in the Archives.

As for the character himself, Lobo is a strong grappler that has the added bonus of long-ranged attacks in the form of his shotgun and chain. This makes him dangerous both up close and at a distance. Every character in the game has a special ability, activated by pressing the circle button the Flash is granted super speed, Superman super strength and so on – Lobo’s special ability is a super charged shotgun blast which, while not being as impressive as other powers out there, deals a severe amount of damage.


Lobo is a solid character and the team at NetherRealm have clearly put a lot of love into bringing him to life. His move-set  voice acting and overall character design are all completely authentic to the character and as such he will appeal to hardcore fans of the comics.

In tandem with the release of Lobo, a compatibility pack has been released that enables all players to play online together, even if they don’t have Lobo. As an added incentive to download the pack is comed with costumes based on the DC Comics miniseries Flashpoint.

injusticecharactersIncluded are Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Deathstroke. Based in an alternate reality, Flashpoint featured familiar characters in an unfamiliar setting, including a devastating war between Aquaman’s Atlanteans and Wonder Woman’s Themyscirans and Thomas Wayne becoming Batman following the death of his son Bruce.

injusticebatgirlNetherRealm has also announced that Batgirl will be added to the roster but at an undisclosed time and had hinted at the release of General Zod to coincide with the release of the new Superman movie.

Starhawk gets a patch and Commander Fury prepares to get the skinny on all the DLC

PlayStation announced today that Starhawk would receive a boat load of goodies with the next Patch. Lightbox followed that up with a more detailed post outlining many of the changes coming with 1.04 as well. Not only that, as the fan base has asked for many times, we are seeing the release of a digital version as well.

I did check with Harvard to clarify if Coop would be included in the Multipayer version, and he explained the two apps are either All Solo or All Multiplayer. He also confirmed the Single Player only is currently available to PS Plus users in response to a question posed on the blog.

What could this possibly be?

Well we have more coming as well, Commander Fury will have Andrew Weldon who is the design lead on the unannounced DLC joining us for the next podcast.

Commander Fury will get down and dirty with Andrew about the new content, if there is more than meets the eye and how the DLC will work. I hear there is a truckload of DLC coming so I think Dylan may be holding out on us.

If you want to provide any questions for the interview, please comment below and we will select a few of the questions for the interview.

Has ‘Pre-Ordering’, Gotten Out of Control?

Article and images by: CritiKiL

I haven’t pre-ordered anything in awhile. I mostly am able to get a game, console or accessory online, and now they even send the items so that they are in your house either on the release day or before. ‘Exclusive Content’ ~ Yeppers, there really isn’t any of that going on (…for the most part!) because it’s not the stores which give you the content it’s the item’s developers. Right now the only exclusivity I’ve seen, is the relationship that Microsoft has with XBox Live with COD title games arriving first and other console owners having to wait at least a month later ~ Boooh!

Lately Gamestop has been promoting the  ‘pre-ordering’ of DLC, even using the word ‘exclusive destination’ for the upcoming “Annihilation” DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops. They did it with Halo: Reach’s ‘Noble Map Pack’, offering ‘Free stuff’ ~ a Flaming Mark V Spartan Helmet for your Xbox Live Avatar.  Yay, free stuff — but that’s beside the point. The point is, GameStop is taking pre-orders on DLC (downloadable content) as Exclusive, but I thought the reason for pre-ordering was to secure a copy in case the store runs out of stock?

That’s not the case for DLC. It looks as-if GameStop’s strategy for dealing with a scarcity-free market…is to hope nobody notices the lack of scarcity. Well I’m sorry to say that this just isn’t true. Let’s make a general comparison to the ‘exclusivity’ of DLC and the proceedures for it’s apparent ‘scarcity’ of availability:

To pre-order DLC from Gamestop you’ll have to:

  • 1) Visit the store and pre-order it.
  • 2) Wail until the actual release day (not ‘before’ but on that day!).
  • 3) Recieve a download voucher in your e-mail then enter code and play.

Whereas, to get your DLC through XBox Live, all you have to do is:

  • 1) Order it on release day and play!

Now I’m not a lazy guy, but for there NOT being any advantages and NO scarcity of availability…I’ll take my chances in ‘ordering the DLC from my sofa’ ~ lmao! In my experience the only things worth pre-ordering are new consoles, since they tend to be in short supply. But DLC? ~

Looks like Gamestop is blowing something up our ___’s. They’re making us start to think that DLC might one day be ‘out of stock’ (Forgive me but this is really funny stuff here ~ lol!) In closing I’d like to say to ‘keep your eyes open to the hype’ and, ‘The whole World’s a Circus, but just don’t be the Clown’. DLC is never scarce in demand that you have to go to Gamestop, to get it. Let us know what you think? Reply to this thread…

Black Ops ‘Annihilation’ DLC3: Confirmed!

Put aside all the speculations, Treyark has finally revealed the fact that the leaked info about a 3rd DLC, is True! The name of this 3rd installment is ‘Annihilation’ and adds four exotic multiplayer maps, plus entirely new settings for unrelenting Zombies action. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation is launching worldwide for Xbox LIVE on June 28th, 2011 at the price of $15.00, and of course…PC / PS3 console owners will have to wait nearly a month before they get their hands on it ;-(






The New Maps:

  • Hangar 18: Based in the controversial ‘Area 51’ and coincides w/a few conspiracy theories you’ve heard about.
  • Drive-In: Midium-sized map where all  paths lead either in or around the hangar and some nice sniper-points.
  • Silo: Based on a Russian underground nuclear missile silo. Most likely this is one of the largest maps in the game!
  • Hazard: Gold course-like, caters to the long distance players and snipers will have alot of fun because of it’s advantage being ‘distance-killing’.

Zombies Map:

I’m liking this version, it’s mostly ‘Daytime’ Zombie-fun! This version takes place in the mysterious land of “Shangri-La,” a legendary shrine lost in an exotic jungle. Never before seen undead creatures lurk within a treacherous labyrinth of underground caverns. Step carefully through deadly traps and solve the dark secrets buried within the shifting walls of a long last land.

This is not too surprising though, with the fact that in just two weeks after this DLC is launched we will see the Black Ops Elite set itself in motion. Well enough of my rambling, here’s a video for you to get all the info you need to know which includes information on the all-new multiplayer maps. Enjoy!:

MW3 / DLC: PS3 owners, Prepare To Get Screwed…”Again!”

This is not going to be a shock to some of you that Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) is coming out this November 8th 2011. But since the release of the trailer-teaser of the game there’s been reports suggesting that once again, Activision will favor the Xbox 360 version ahead of the PS3 not just on game outputage, but on DLC releases as well. I have just read where the upcoming DLC for MW3 (with the game releasing on Nov. 8th 2011) will also be favored for Xbox in advance of the other consoles.

It’s also been noted that at the end of the reveal trailer for Modern Warfare 3, many saw the Xbox 360 logo with a message telling viewers to pre-order the Xbox 360 version. In fact, there’s NEVER any mention of the PS3 version in initial trailers when the game is being introduced! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Activision is keeping to it’s previous stance as to which version it considers, their favorite.

Now I personally saw the reveal trailer myself and then later went and saw the YouTube version. It’s quite clear that the Xbox 360 logo isn’t anywhere on the reveal trailer on YouTube! Question is:  Was it removed in fear of a PS3 resentment or possible brewing of a ‘boycott’? Inquiring minds would like to know. Although Actvision and Infinity Ward are yet to announce any sort of console deals for Modern Warfare 3, don’t be surprised if PS3 users end up getting DLC one month later “again and again” ~ much like what happens on Black Ops and seemingly every other Call of Duty game being produced.

So, as an owner of both the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles, what do you viewers and readers think about this? There’s obviously some kind of an ‘arrangement’ with Activision and Microsoft to produce games for Xbox consoles, and ‘then’ port versions out to the PC’s and PS3’s. Though I don’t like it, I guess we just have to ‘live with it’. Let me know what YOU think, in replying to this thread…
