    Injustice is in the Russia Xbox Marketplace. When will it come to the US?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516951649 Justin Stewart

      It’s already available on Games On Demand over there?

      • Rohan Mayers

        Yep, in Russia. I am trying to post the link but it says “awaiting moderation”.

    Buying this just so I can play as Brock Sampson…man I love Venture Brothers

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516951649 Justin Stewart

      You can’t play as Brock Sampson.

    • http://twitter.com/ScreamingFalcon Charles Johnson

      You play against him, never as him.

    Why in God’s name would they have Ash and not use Bruce Campbell’s voice? Makes no sense at all.

      And it’s not like he would have been difficult to get, the man even lent his voice to the freakin’ Spider-Man games.

      • Does Not Equal

        Easy, probably. Cheap? Doubtful.

    First you charge for L4D2 DLC that’s free on Steam then charge double Steam’s price for a game made by the creators of Steam? Deal of the Week it is then.

    Frankly I blame Valve just as much for letting these things happen.

    • ElektroDragon

      PC games are for poor people. :D

      • http://twitter.com/NAVARiN Bennijin

        Except the whole constantly buying new parts to keep up thing.
        At least a 360 bought at the end of 2005 can still play games released now.

        Well, assuming it hasn’t broken.

        • ElektroDragon

          I was being sarcastic. :)

          • http://twitter.com/NAVARiN Bennijin

            I know, but rising to sarcasm can be fun. :)

        • http://twitter.com/CapnMeow Joey Meow

          If you’re constantly buying parts for a PC then you are doing something terribly wrong.

      • http://www.facebook.com/kevin.giguere.5 Kevin Giguere

        PC games are for smart people. Also, did not get the sarcasm, oups.

  • http://twitter.com/arsque Darin

    $5 on Steam $10 on Xbox… Hmm I guess I’ll get it on Steam.

    • ElektroDragon

      I know, charging double the price just because it is on Xbox is beyond insulting.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jonah-Falcon/525044162 Jonah Falcon

        You do know it’s Telltale who set the price, right?

        • ElektroDragon

          Then Telltale is insulting. :P

        • http://www.facebook.com/kevin.giguere.5 Kevin Giguere

          That’s not always entirely true. Dunno if it’s only indie devs, but there is some price enforcement by Microsoft.

    • http://twitter.com/HaloKitty343 DMH

      Well Valve is involved in the game. Wouldn’t they want to entice people to play on their platform? Just a suggestion. One of the times I can;t get too worked up about it.

  • Ben Rudolph

    Is any one playing this game? Is it worth it?

    • jlh

      I just played my first tournament and it was a lot of fun. Loving all the characters so far (well Max is kinda annoying) but Glados is by far the best. The replacement voice actor for Ash did a good job but I really would have preferred Bruce Campbell.
      I prefer the poker gameplay of Full House over this but the characters & the funny dialogue made it a good buy for me.

    • ElektroDragon

      It is worth $5, not $10. The Steam version is priced fairly. The Live version is overpriced, probably to pay for Microsoft’s cut of the profits.

  • http://www.facebook.com/BigDog969 BigDog969

    You can pre-purchase this on Steam for $5 and get the first one free. You can’t beat 2 games for $5

    • ElektroDragon

      WOW! Thanks for the tip! Awesome deal. Both games for $5, both with Steam achievements. Yeah, that’s enough to tempt me away from the 400 gamerscore. Better hurry up though, this deal is gone tommorrrow!

    Worth it just to listen to the humour of the characters

    The game is broken on my 360 just keeps saying connecting after pressing start. Connecting to what ? It’s a single player game.
