Lesser Known Batmans

Lesser Known Batmans In Infinite Crisis

A new game from DC Comics called Infinite Crisis was revealed at PAX East over the weekend. It will use characters from the entire DC multiverse including elseworlds titles. That means a bunch of different Batmans and Supermans and probably Captain Carrot or JLApe or something silly like that ( not that JLApe was elseworld; that happened in DC proper). From watching the trailer, I thought the game would be just like the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance games which I love. THey’re not the best games in the world, but they’re a great change of pace for the Left 4 Dead team (We go by Alley Cat Strike! [not affiliated with the Disney Chanel original movie]). But it looks like it will actually will be a MOBA, which a Google search informs me means a League of Legends clone. I have no interest in this. Not that I’ve played League of Legends or have any opinion on it, I’m just not into online arena type games.

Also, why would they call it Infinite Crisis instead of the vastly superior Crisis on Infinite Earths. Not only is Crisis on Infinite Earths more recognizable, it’s just a better title. It’s just incredibly campy and over the top. Infinite Crisis just sounds stupid and impenetrable if you don’t know it’s an reference to Crisis on Infinite Earths, in which case it just sounds stupid.
