You can watch his gameplay trailer above, which sees him fighting Robin, Superman, and Green Lantern. Beginning at 1:09, you can see his Super Move in action.

[embedded content] The new Injustice 2 trailer today provides a closer look at Brainiac, including his regular moves and super move, in fights against Superman, Gorilla Grodd, and Green Arrow. Here’s his description: Brainiac is a megalomaniacal genius who roams the universe, collecting knowledge to increase his intellectual and scientific prowess. Obsessed with establishing his superiority, Brainiac captured Krypton’s greatest cities, then eradicated what remained…or so he thought. Tales of the “Last Son of Krypton” have reached far into the stars. Now, the Collector of Worlds comes to Earth to finish his accumulation of Krypton — and discovers a new world worthy of his collection. Previously, it looked like April 28 would only have one new character reveal.

The original Outlast impressed many with its expertly-crafted ambiance, and nerve-wracking moments in a game where your only choices for survival are to run and/or hide. Over three years later, Outlast 2 sets out to take everything that terrified players in the first game, and amplify it with a new setting, new characters, and new chances to scare you silly. Time to find out if the wait was worth it in our review. A New Frontier In Outlast 2, You play as Blake Langermann, an investigate journalist and cameraman, who finds himself and wife Lynn en route to an extremely remote section of the Sonoran Desert in the Southwestern United States. Naturally, this story taking place in the Outlast universe means things quickly go south. Your helicopter crash-lands, and you are treated to an incredibly hostile welcome by the locals. It’s a completely different location, and completely different characters, and yet, the gruesome new area feels vaguely familiar. One major change in Outlast 2 is that Blake talks, quite a lot. However, he is only really vocal during cutscenes. Most of the game revolves around you hiding and pacing your escape from various areas, and during these sections Blake READ…
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor introduced the Nemesis System as one of its core features, which was widely praised by users and critics alike. However, it certainly had room for improvement – something Monolith Productions will address in Shadow of War. In an interview with PlayStation LifeStyle, the developer explained how the system has been advanced in the upcoming title by implementing lessons learned from the first game and strengthening its stories. First, we took all the lessons from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor about what people remembered most and which Nemesis stories created the strongest emotions and we tripled down on strengthening those stories. We want people to absolutely love to hate their personal enemies. Then, we focused a lot on adding similar emotional hooks and memories to your followers, and this allowed us to create new types of stories and connections. When it gets really fun is when we have interactions between your enemies and followers, resulting in betrayals and rivalries that can be a lot like relationships between friends and brothers. It brings the world and Orc society to life in a new way. We’re also told that the Nemesis System will be more purposeful this time around as players build READ FULL STORY…
