INJUSTICE – Enter the Catwoman

INJUSTICE – Enter the Catwoman

First seen at this years E3 2012, INJUSTICE is shaping up to draw plenty of comic fans come release time. The ever-evolving roster has a new addition today: Catwoman, bringing us to 9 of the rumored 28 characters.

Joining a cast that includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Nightwing, and Cyborg, Catwoman looks like a fast combo-focused character with a lot of agility.  It’ll definitely be interesting to see her in matches facing off against powerhouses like Superman and Wonder Woman.

Although the dialogue is a bit campy and the costume leaves a little to be desired, this Catwoman’s look definitely fits the game’s current style. She’s a great choice for inclusion given her upper-echelon status in the DCU and the success of The Dark Knight Rises bringing her to the forefront. It’s also great to see the male to female count balancing out some more, considering that DC has some of the most iconic women in comics.

Check out the video below and get a taste of what’s to come from INJUSTICE.

The Friday Fix April 29th

Hello lovely readers!  Sorry if you have been missing The Fix, but I am in the process of graduating college and boy am I busy.  Still, I have a brief respite from the papers, exams, and daily beatings so I thought what better way to celebrate then by bringing you a fresh edition of The Friday Fix.  Have y’all been busy as well?  Anyone out there find time to play Portal 2 yet?  How about the new Mortal Kombat, which if you haven’t played it yet is by a LONG shot the best in the series, at least in the humble opinion of this product of the 90’s.  If you are new to The Fix it is easy enough to follow.  I recommend a band, and then I saunter with a rakish swagger into the darkest corridors of Pixelated Geek until I have dragged out every last bit of the most newstastic news I can find.  Got it?

The band for this week is going to be Fleet Foxes. Their blend of huge harmonies and acoustic guitars create a unique and beautiful sound. They have a new album called Helplessness Blues releasing on May 3rd. Be sure to preview it here.

Now on to the news!!
