By on March 1, 2013 at 2:28 pm

Result videos for week 4 of the Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Arena recently went live on the official Youtube channel. The matches featured here are Superman vs. Sinestro and Green Arrow vs. Hawkgirl. While you can probably guess the victor in at least one of these matches, the videos give us a great look at the combo capabilities of the cast. We also get to see the supers of the newly announced fighters and some amazing stage transitions featuring cameos from all over the DC universe.

    Hawkgirl !! you have failed this city 🙁 

    • samael789

       Why does everyone keep saying that? I tried Googling it but all I get is references to today’s Battle Arena.

      • Joey T Medina

        It’s what the Green Arrow says right before he kills a huge villain from his new show Arrow. The show is honestly pretty allright.

        It’s probably one of the main reasons he won over Hawkgirl in this popularity contest(oops I mean in this fight).

      • amr_raed

        yeah pretty much what Joey said , it is what Arrow says when he confronts a Villan .  

    • Chris Breci

       Lol love this reference.  But Shi’ara wouldve beat the life out of Oliver Queen.

    • Zachary K Sporn

      Anyone else notice the tea bagging at 1:40-ish?

  • Dexterpaddles

    Green Arrow is a cockbitter, he sent that poor little cute cleaning robot to its death.

    He didn’t even win that fight, Darkseid and Giganta did all the heavy lifting.

  • Langdon Herrick

    I was hoping for a little more creativity from Hal and Sinestro’s constructs, but alas. You know Capcom/Arc System Works would have had a field day with them.

    Still looking forward to this game, even if the animation is underwhelming.

    • What did you have in mind?

      • Langdon Herrick

        Maybe SInestro could trap the enemy in an alien iron maiden or an airless construct and just pick his nails while the opponent suffocates, or Hal could call in bombing runs from lantern-constructed fighter jets. Or they could have made Hal or Sinestro’s character traits the ability to set construct force fields to block projectiles or create platforms to jump off of, etc.

        They killed it on certain characters (like Aquaman) but seemed to coast a little with the characters they could have gone wild with.

        Perhaps instead of complaining about the lanterns I should just be happy they gave Hawkgirl an Izuna Drop.  🙂

        • A force field will make them broken and a platform looks it’ll be hard to implement as well as the inherit bugs that will come with it.

        •  If the game were 2D I would have expected a lot more, but having to make models for each construct is a whole different beast, I’m actually pretty happy with the amount of work went in.

  • Snow Loss

    Sinestro looks a lot more dynamic than Hal (which he is), but I still can’t help but feel NR failed to do the lanterns justice (again). Their attacks should be some of the most creative and intricate combo wise…

    Still though Seeing Sinestro have an Oroboros, and Hawkgirl giving off shades of Marvel air combat and Aquaman I’m liking the sight of actually seeing fluid looking combos.

    Also the Hawkgirl vs Green Arrow fight was clutch as shit. Not much of that standing around waiting to get hit to show something off stuff we keep seeing.

  • Rahavic

    I think Sinestro is gonna be sick. He looks like Dr. Strange a little, even has moves that he needs to power up here and there in order to get that little orb thing he got, and he even floats around like a douchebag almost like Strange’s flight pose. I’m interested as hell in him already. Def gonna give him a shot day 1 no doubt. After I’m done finding the most broken crap with Batman and joining the Bat Army of course…but always good to have a backup in mind.

    • Zachary K Sporn

      Sinestro looks like he has some serious zoning tools and a ton of combo-ability. 

      But after watching him and GL power up in their videos…am I the only one thinking that they’re the Hakan(s) of this game…?

      • Joey T Medina

        I’m not 100% Green Lantern works the same way, but for Sinestro, yea, it’s similar to Hakan. It looks like he is charging his little assist globe thing when he is powering up, and when he is done charging it is basically dirty mixup time. I’m really liking the little gimmicks they giving every character to spice up gameplay.

        Batman’s is tossing electric batarangs that hit the opponent way after he tosses them so it sets up an assist situation mixup. This move has a cooldown, just like an assist. Flash could slow down time for a bit similar to Ammy and Joe from MvC3. This move has a cooldown. Cyborg could regenerate health. Green Arrow could switch into special arrows(freeze, shock, fire) but he only has a limited amount of each before the fight starts.

        I seriously love it. This game is shaping up to be something really unique.

  • Amadeus Alexander

    I’m not usually the one for talking shit, but this game has shaped up sooooo good. The game mechanics, stage transitions, environments, win/lose animations, even that bargaining system is really shining right now. 

  • bleep bloop

    If only these games weren’t clunky as shit. I love all of the ideas I’m seeing here, but that MK-Style tap-tap-tap awkward fighting game feel is just never gonna cut it with me. 

    • Rahavic

      Tap tap tap?

      • Dexterpaddles

        Maybe he means the 3 hit dial a combos?
        But that’s basically how a chain combo works, so I’m not sure why he would have a problem with that.

    • windsagio

      I really have no idea what that’s supposed to mean.

      • yomachaser

        He’s talking about the clunky disjoined way all MK games have animated. Like they aren’t using enough frames or something.

  • Simply Chun-believeable ^_~ ♥♥

    NRS: “If a super takes place in space, it’s good!”

    Nah but eff that, Hawkgirl should have won.
    “Your flight’s cancelled” Hahaha what?? That’s so in Green’s character.

  • windsagio

    Where’s fly/unfly guy?  He should be freakin’ thrilled at this point.

  • Pol Subanajouy

    So….Superman and Batman in the finals?

    • windsagio

      we all knew that from the start, yeah ><

      And then probably batman wins, just because that's the way people are.

    • Snow Loss

      I’ve been trying to convince as many people as I can to vote against Batman and Superman since the start. We need to shake up their obvious bracket rigging in this popularity contest.

      • Pol Subanajouy

        Hey, I’m down with that.  Heaven knows that Wonder Woman has actually knocked Batman on his butt in an actual fight a couple of times in the actual comics.  

        And yes, with full knowledge that he was going to fight Diana, with time to prepare.

  • Asaid AieezyOle Falah

    is BlueBeetle gonna be in this game?

  • Kinda bummed at how it seems like Darkseid won’t be playable.

  • N1Special

    doomsday is a stage hazard too.. don’t get your hopes up kiddo
