The TMNT Leave The Sewers And Head For Injustice 2

The TMNT Leave The Sewers And Head For Injustice 2

Cowabunga, dudes!!

Injustice 2 is the follow-up to the popular DC Comics fighting game by NetherRealms Studios. The series pits iconic DC heroes like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman against the likes of foes such as The Joker, Lex Luthor, and Ares in an alternate universe conflict that sees the two groups switching sides and forming alliances when the Man of Steel himself goes rouge. The original title featured a single guest character in the form of Mortal Kombat's Scorpion as a nod to their shared developers, but the sequel has gotten a little more liberal with its non-DC content.

Until now the game already featured two Mortal Kombat characters, (Sub Zero and Raiden) plus Hellboy of Dark Horse Comics fame. Now, it looks like now they’re being joined by four more unlikely heroes in a half shell.

Seriously! The Teenage Mutant gosh darn Turtles are coming to Injustice 2 as DLC alongside The Atom and Enchantress, and it looks like it’s time for them to kick butt. Apparently the turtles will play as a single unit and fight together as one rather than as separate individuals that can be pitted against each other. Players will be able to tag each turtle in and out of battle mid-fight in order to take advantage of their unique weapons and movesets. This fits their team dynamic theme nicely, and it makes them the first of their kind to be playable in the Injustice series.

Even beyond gameplay, this is a flat-out cool addition. It might seem strange to remember, but the turtle brothers were first introduced to the world and continue to appear now in comic form. This has included multiple surprisingly charming crossovers with Batman, and so the four ninja boys meeting up with DC heroes and villains is not unprecedented.

On top of this, you can tell that NetherRealms is going to handle the sewer-dwellers respectfully. Someone must seriously be a fan of the mutant martial artists down at the development studio, because they got their appearances, voices, and personalities down pat in the reveal trailer. They sound just right, they’ve got their familiar group dynamic banter and surfer dude accents going, and their visual designs look heavily inspired by the original cartoon; this choice may be a bit odd initially for a fighting game as gritty as Injustice 2, but it’s bound to make fans of the TMNT series happy.

Heck, they even had Raphael appear out of the shadows in his trench coat like he did in the original movies. That’s totally awesome, dude!

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.


When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

What You'd Miss Out On If Video Games Went 100% Digital

Going 100% digital is not without its disadvantages.


It's 2019, and we are full on in the digital age.

It is no surprise that shopping is being done online a lot more now than 5-10 years ago. Online shopping does have its perks. However, some consumers still have appreciation and preference for going to an actual store to make some of their purchases. Video games, consoles, and accessories are no exception. Sure when you buy digital games, you limit the number of times you have to get up to change the game you are playing, but that is not a good enough reason to go 100% digital.

So, what would consumers miss out on if video games become 100% digital?

There are several things one would miss out on should the video game industry became 100% digital.

I still see a considerable share of video game collectors for both retro and current generation gaming consoles. They enjoy purchasing special editions of specific titles that comes with extra goodies such as steelbook cases.

The majority of gamers, such as myself, do not have a video game library that is 100% digital or 100% physical. I tend to prefer purchasing physical games, but if a specific title is either digital only or if it is significantly less expensive online, then I will make the digital purchase.

If you were to purchase a game physically and it ends up not meeting your expectations, you will have options as to what to do with the game. You can return it for partial or full value back depending on where you bought it. You can sell it online on websites like eBay or LetGo. You can even regift it to someone if you are feeling generous.

When you purchase a digital game, you are stuck with it. You can delete it from your system's hard drive, but you cannot get your money back for it or give it away to someone else.

Most current generation games have things you can purchase separately such as season passes, costumes, and weapons.

You could link a credit card to your console's account and possibly have another user make a lot of purchases of “just this one thing," resulting in a hefty credit card bill.

If you would rather avoid that happening, you can buy prepaid cards and codes at various retailers so you can either buy that one item you want or buy digital currency to add to your account so your credit card will not get charged until your account has no money or not enough money in it when you try to purchase something.

Some consumers also still enjoy conversing with a real live human being, which you do not get when you do everything online.

So while online game purchases can be more convenient, it is not necessarily always better.
