Snarking about a game 

Wow, they're giving away Injustice: Gods Among Us: Ultimate Edition on Steam! I finally own a game that takes place in a grim and dire universe reminiscent of the modern Justice League films. With this generous gift from the WB corporation, I can pit Superman against The Flash and find out which is the victor, all to an intense orchestral soundtrack in the style of what you'd find in a prestige media production

It installed directly into my computer's recycle bin, weird

Snarking about a different game for a similar reason 

"Wow, Kingdom Hearts 3 is $8!" It's a giant ad for a suite of Disney properties and attractions with gameplay attached; I know people find value in the story and characters, but they should still be paying you to play it

@Lobst

Is there a GOTY edition where they explain the story? That sounds like an easy way to fill 50 hours. 🍷

@Lobst see, they didn't make you pay for neopets, and most of THOSE games were ads if i recall correctly,

@irisjaycomics @Lobst welcome to neopets 2020, where Kacheek Seek costs 5 bucks.

@ComputerHusband @irisjaycomics @Lobst The PS2 games were apparently garbo, anyway.

@Lobst It's very funny to me that the entire plot of that game is kicked into motion because the Joker tricks Superman (who is incredibly stupid) into flying Lois Lane up into outer space where she dies.

@Lobst Also there's the part in the game where Superman burns through Shazam's (who is 12 years old) head with his laser eyes.

@demoweasel @Lobst Oh God I remember that and I think Flash even says "HE WAS JUST A KIIIIID"

@Scruffo @demoweasel I didn't know any of these story details, but I'm so happy to hear about them in the face of how insufferably self-serious this game is

@Lobst @demoweasel There are good aspects though. Like that the game is about a Non Injustice Universe coming in and kinda just going around the world with a giant raised eyebrow.
