NetherRealm has released footage of Batgirl facing off against the Joker in DC Universe fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us. The second downloadable fighter to be announced following Injustice's launch, Batgirl's release comes with extra costumes for the game's characters based on Alan Moore's famous graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke. In the acclaimed tale, the Joker shoots and paralyzes Barbara Gordon (that is, Batgirl) in order to torment her father Commissioner Gordon into madness. In the Injustice fight here, Batgirl gets some revenge. Batgirl was the second of four DLC fighters to be announced following the game's release in April. The first was "Main Man" Lobo, who was added to the game on May 7.

The final two fighters to be officially confirmed for Injustice: Gods Among Us are super villains Killer Frost and Ares, who battle it out in a new gameplay trailer released by Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios. In the video, Killer Frost uses her ice-based powers — a skill the Mortal Kombat developer is quite familiar with — to battle the evil Greek god of war Ares in Aquaman's throne room. Both characters' moves are explored as are their over-the-top supers. Ares' is arguably more impressive, as he teleports Killer Frost directly into the path of a thousand arrows then grows to colossal size before crushing her into the ground. Killer Frost's super, on the other hand, delivers a series of (still painful-looking) ice spikes. The official confirmation of the two, which had p...

We have three more games this week, one of which is sure to speak to your inner self. Injustice: Gods Among Us (iOS, Android coming soon) This mobile port of the soon-to-be-released console fighter is surprisingly deep and should appeal to DC super hero aficionados the world over.

Simple controls and slick presentation make it an easy recommendation. Slayin' (iOS) In case you didn't know, all the cool kids are leaving the "g" off their words these days. Case in point: Slayin', which boils down RPG mechanics into the simplest possible...
