Injustice 2

It’s not often a game comes along that appeals to every geek fetish I have simultaneously, but Injustice 2 does just that. It continues the tale of a corrupted Superman who, after the loss of Lois Lane, decides he needs to become the Kim Jong-un of the DC Universe. Actually, I should more accurately call it the DC multiverse because, as you’ll learn later, it allows these events to play out simultaneously with our world’s timeline. And of course, now it also includes characters like Mortal Kombat’s Raiden, Hellboy, and eventually the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

What’s so great about Injustice 2? It has an in-depth story mode. There’s amazing multiplayer. Brother Eye lets you take on daily challenges that task you with beating non-canon versions of characters. You can use equipment to alter characters. And its cast keeps growing. PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC owners are going to love it.
