Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

Post by Dogfish »

I mean. Seriously. This looks fucking cool.



I was wary at first, but it's Rocksteady. I should have been more trusting. And I don't say that often/ever.

Looks like most big game releases are hitting delays these days. Most of these projects have been in development for years and the disruption of the Covid pandemic has taken months of productivity off them.

One delay at least has been quite the standard for some years already, then around a year to fix too many issues in the games after the launch.

When I worked for Sony the attitude was you either ship or lose your job. Only time there was a delay was when two games in the same genre were released near each other so they pushed one back. Normally Sony blows a gasket on delays.

After the disaster with cyberpunk its best companies do not announce release dates or even the year until they are absolutely clear on the state of the game and that it will be playable without a million glitches. CD project red has delayed its Witcher 3 upgrade again and Bethesda's Starfield is going to be delayed, if they stopped announcing release dates then they wouldn't have to say its delayed lol.

Still with this Kill the JL game I am wondering if you will actually get to kill the JL members :)

The thing is if you're a company with shareholders you have to say when you're releasing a game, and there comes a point where, because of the shareholders, that game has to arrive. Whether it's a CP2077 looking mess or not.

I'm gonna be honest, I'm less hype of it despite being made by Rocksteady, creators of Arkhamverse & Kevin Conroy voicing Batman one last time. I have yet see full game play other than a peek on Fandome.

I friend of mine works for Bungie, which is now Sony, and they hit their deadlines consistently, but that's because about halfway through the development cycle, they have a meeting where they sit down and look at all the features of the game, and determine which ones are complete enough to go into the finished game. The ones that aren't ready or very nearly complete get pulled out, and then they spend a year or more on testing and polish. The incomplete stuff will get finished for the 2.0 release.

It's poor marketing on WB/Rocksteady's part. That's why I'm skeptical on buying it & losing interest in it. They said telnet show 15 minutes of game play. We'll see.

So here's something interesting: I guess I'm somewhat of an "industry insider" now, since I've been attending a "comics industry" convention here in Pittsburgh this week.

I was at the DC panel today, where the DC staff announced their upcoming slate of movies and comic book events, and they did announce this Suicide Squad Kills The Justice League limited comic book series that will go along with the game. Along with the "Dawn of DC" event, it seems like one of the larger promotional pushes they are doing this year. Nobody in the audience asked if Captain Boomerang was using guns, though. They obviously overlooked that very important detail. Blimey!

Yeah, there are so many red flags at this point I'm going to be giving it a wide berth. Which is sad, Rocksteady are some of my favourite devs. This just looks so far off what it ought to be though.

Seems like its going to turn out as bad as Avengers. Also notice you see no clips of Batman, Wonder Woman, small amount of Flash and Superman. Seeing some game play it seems like the characters are all flavors of ice cream, nothing distinctive. They all have guns for example. Why does Capt Boomerrang have a gun?

Or King Shark?

And if guns are the main modus operandi why isn't Deadshot automatically vastly superior to the others because guns are actually his thing?

Gigantic and I suspect fatal questions to this approach.

The more I think on it the sadder this game makes me, it's taken so long and it looks so wrong. We could have had literally anything from Rocksteady in all these years but what we get is this thing.

On the plus side, it's going to make Gotham Knights look loads better.

I did see a clip with a slight showing of Wonder Woman. Very slight. Hair in pony tail, no shot of the body. I get the feeling this thing is a real stinker.

So now that the cut scenes are out for this game we get a much better view of Wonder Woman. Sadly its basically a meh depiction. First off she doesn't appear feminine, she is dressed to the point of being bulky. The face is very different, someone said they try to make her look Greek. Her cape literally looks like a terry cloth baby blanket. No fan service to speak of. At some points, the way she walks, she could easily pass as trans.
Spoiler
She is the only justice leaguer who isn't assimilated by Brainiac. She dies at the hands of Superman. It is an interest angle in which, because she she olds onto hope to save Superman and the rest, she won't kill them which makes her more of a liability. The cut scenes have messages about how the good guys are just scumbags right under the skin. People say this game kills the whole Arkham story line as well as Rocksteady itself. In the end you have to kill like 13 brainiacs in 13 different alternative earths. Total grind.

They did like 3 minutes of PITCH BLACK cut scene. I wonder if they actually rendered PITCH BLACK scenes. No wonder games cost $100 mil to make. Seriously messed up. How can they offer up a black screen for a few minutes of corny dialog.

I've been seeing this game's demise go down on Twitter (or X), and it still blows my mind that they expect people to hand over 70 to 100 dollars for a live-service game. A live-service game that doesn't even have an offline feature for you to play the story.

I'm not put off by 'live service game' and honestly most people aren't, they probably just don't realise it. Does your game have DLC updates? Does it have a season pass? Does it have frequent patches? Then it's a live service game.

It hasn't hurt Call of Duty that's for sure.

I'm put off by having King Shark alongside Deadshot as apparently equal gun guys. Like you've got THE gun guy. King Shark is the bites your torso off guy. Harley is not a battlefield style character by any stretch. Cunto Boomerang (I can't be arsed to learn his name he sucks) is a seatfiller.

It's such a bad design choice to make this an open area shooter that I can't wrap my head around it.

It reminds me of when some genius made Sonic the Hedgehog into a Karting game. The little fucker runs at the speed of sound but you're going to put him in a twatty little car. Lunacy.

I'm generally avoiding spoilers though because fuck it, I'm in. I want to see this... Thing. Rocksteady are ostensibly one of the greatest game studios in the world. Even if their game is shit I want to see it.

One thing I noticed seeing the cut scenes - no real good female representation. You get a Wonder Woman who almost looks trans with no appeal, a slutty Harley, an elderly Amanda Waller, a child for Poison Ivy. All the male characters are in traditional garb. All the female characters are butchered and downplayed. Why isn't Flash a child or Superman looking like Pee Wee herman? All those guys keep their body types, age, gender, physique, classic costumes.

The women seem to be the group who gets turned into a diversity circus. If a girl played this game and wanted to cosplay, besides Harley who does she emulate?

It seems like the people who say they are pushing diversity are really just hurting the people they claim to protect.

I saw a little Youtube video from Yellow Flash about Harley grabbing Deadshot's ass in the game. I don't play video games, but Flash's point was if it was Deadshot grabbing Harley's ass, everyone involved would be attacked and cancelled. But assault on men is just fine.

Catwoman's not in this at all, Mr. X?

There's a Batman museum with these figures. Catwoman didn't look too good. Yes I saw the Deadhsot ass grab.

One thing is I am done with the "if it was the other way around there would be outrage". How about instead be that outrage. I don't expect tricksters and society wreckers to do justice for me.

I finally played that new Suicide Squad game & I see why it get bad reviews. The game is not fun & feels like a chore than having fun. The gameplay mechanics are repetitive & ass. I didn't even bother to finish it & gonna take it back to GameFly.

I used to be excited for the game when it firsted announced, then the multiple delays, the live stream reveal, & spoilers ruined it for me before I finally letdown playing it myself.

For the record I love how the 'gaming community' (for whatever that concept is worth) was apparently outraged by the idea that SS:KTJL was a 'Game As A Service' and this was why nobody was into it.

And then barely a week or two later, Helldivers 2 comes out, unapologetic game as a service, third person shooter. Everybody loves it. It's an early runner for game of the year. The idea that there was ever anything wrong with the idea of a game of a service has been roundly squashed.

That's because Helldivers 2 is a great game....... and Suicide Squad isn't.

Don't let all the political and gender hooplah in this topic steer you the wrong way. One SINGLE primary principle matters to a videogames success.

Is it fun... or not?

If Yes=acclaim. If no=early success AT BEST then failure.

I'm not just licking Helldiver's balls here either. Helldivers is every bit as, if not MORE, 'woke' than Suicide Squad.... that doesn't matter to anyone playing it, because when they are playing it, they are having a blast, while when they are playing Suicide Squad, they are typically quite bored.

What is going on with the utility belt and satchel there? The top half is a decent WW costume albeit a bit basic but everything at the waist and below looks like a completely different character. Is this WW a homeless person who cobbled together a costume based off of rags she pulled out of dumpsters?

These devs just have a bug up their butt about this character. Injustice 1 she's a manish China wrestler/body builder. Injustice 2 she looks insane and the step mom in some fairy tale. In this game she looks like a possible trans woman in baggy crap. And this seems to be the only character. Black Canary, Harley Quinn etc all seem to look good in these games. Having worked in the industry for a long period of time there is a very strong "we don't like angry young men" attitude. Microsoft, Sony etc all had this attitude. That meant that this audience needed to be denied their fun.

For example, why can't WW look like Gal Gadot? She had 2 movies and appeared in 3 others. But nope, can't be anything exciting to attract the male gaze. Heck Harley even grabs one of the guy's butt and implied Quinn and Ivy were a thing so the game clearly is not shying away from sexiness. And they make no bones about making Superman all jacked.

Ughh don't get me started. Only saving grace is this new wave of church ladies are being told to take a hike.
