The Flash In DCU Online

Press release below about Wally West in the upcoming Sony MMORPG, DC Universe Online. The games set for release…sometime. Players can create their own characters to team up with DC’s expanding gallery of spandex wearers and live vicariously in the DC Universe.  On a related note, Warner Bros. appear to be buying Midway Games, the holders of the Mortal Kombat franchise. I think that’s a good thing. Maybe.

The Fastest Man Alive, Wally West easily runs at light speed vibrates through objects, create explosions through friction – and, when at agonizing top capacity, can manipulate time and bridge dimensions.

The Flash is a time-honored member of the Justice League. The latest in a long line of Flashes, each with their own unique way of tapping into the primal “Speed Force,” Wally is determined to live up to the noble legacies of speedsters such as Barry Allen, Max Mercury, and Jay Garrick.

Flash’s enemies call themselves the Rogues Gallery. This deadly collection of brutal foes includes Captain Cold, Heatwave, Mirror Master, and the lethal speedster Zoom – villainous threats not just to Keystone City, but the world.

DC on Your PC (oh, and Marvel too)

This is a good year for gamers. The biggest gaming con E3 recently showed new footage including the inspired Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe game, which has you beating up MK characters as Superman, Batman, Flash, Catwoman and many others. It’s coming to the XBOX 360 and PS3 in November. Any chance to play as DC characters is great in my book, which will become even more intense with the DC Universe Online game. The trailer is great and a hi-res version can be seen here. Unfortunately it’s only for PS3 and PC players. Hopefully it will eventually make its way to the XBOX too. A release date has yet to be announced. Switching comic book companies, Marvel were set to launch their own MMO too, but it has since been canceled. Oh, what might have been… Marvel zombies can rest assured in the knowledge that the famous web-swinger will score yet another game though. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is coming in October for all consoles. Fighting as Spidey is always a treat with the aerial gymnastics and swinging through cities with utter freedom. There’s nothing like it.
