Hobbit Trailer & Playing Injustice: Gods Among Us

Peter Jackson released a new trailer for part 2 of the Hobbit series, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. I know this is a shocker but the more I see of this the more excited I am for it. This was a full trailer and jam packed with lots of goodies. My favorite comes towards the end when Smaug speaks. Besides seeing what Smaug looks like which we got in the last trailer everyone wanted to know what he would sound like and we got that in this trailer and it's perfect. Benedict Cumberbatch is going the voice of Smaug so we knew it would be good but oh man they nailed it (at least in my opinion, which all that matters on this blog). It's only a few months away, but until then check out the awesome trailer for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.

During the evening I went to hang out with my friends Jen and Will. Will made some very tasty chili for dinner and the three of us played my new Xbox game (that Will got me for my birthday) Injustice: Gods Among Us. If you don't know what this game is.. it's a fighting game based upon the fictional universe of DC Comics. We had a blast, it's only a two player game but the third player would play the winner of each round and none of us really dominated so we all got to play quite a bit. We played until about 12:30am but we could have played all night if these guys didn't have to work the next morning.

I just read the wiki page for this game and there is a really good storyline in it. So far we've only seen a little bit. What I like about this game is you could play the story that they have planned or you could just fight each other and have no ties to the story what so ever. I think for what we did the just fight was best as for the storyline it looks to be a single player game. I do plan to actually play out the storyline.

This is just a small portion of the plot.. you can read the rest HERE.

In an alternate reality, the Joker has tricked Superman into killing Lois Lane and their unborn son and destroying Metropolis with a nuclear explosion. In retaliation, Superman murders the Joker and quickly loses his moral compass. He establishes a new world order as the High Councilor. A war ensues between the forces of Superman's Regime and those allied with Batman's Insurgency. Five years into the war, the Insurgency discovers the Justice League's universe where the Joker's plan did not succeed and transports several of its super heroes (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Green Lantern, with Batman and the Joker being caught up in the transfer by accident) to their world in order to help them defeat the Regime. Batman and the Joker are confronted by the Regime in a dystopian-like Metropolis, but Batman uses his gear to help them both escape and go their separate ways.
