The city itself is obviously a shit hole, but what about the tv show?

This is my response to :iconthenightmarecooper: and his eloquent response to the tv show "Gotham"
And I have to say, 

The guy who does Harvey Bullock is great.

But can we just put him in a noir style series and get rid of Gotham? 

True, the idea of Gotham without Batman is an interesting one, and to that regard, I ask you read Gotham Central, it deals with the Cops who get to deal with Batman's leftovers, it's well writeen and all that stuff, and I expected Gotham to be somewhat based off of that.

It's not. shame on it.

It's a by the book cop show that has all the subtelty of being ran over by a semi truck that's blaring "New Abortion" by Slipknot, nothing is a suprise and I really don't feel like it's really needed, not to mention their take on the bad guys...Black Mask forcing his employees to fight to death in an abandoned cube farm was one of the worse interpetations of any comic book character ever, and that's not even touching on Alfred....

We already have Arrow, The Flash, and hopefully the second season of Constantine, but they all make a point to be good, Gotham at it's best is "Oh. That's neat." and at it's worse, it's horrible.

So, DC has decided to give everyone a new costume to celebrate the end of the honestly completely pointless new 52.
And dear god they're all awful.
The first one's the Flash, which isn't a revamp. That's his standard costume, which, I suppose is good. Still looks like the Flash, but if you're going to have him look the same as he always has, why bother revamping his design?
The Green Lantern honestly looks like a Sith Lord, which, I honestly find hilarious but not really fitting of his character, yeah, he's kind of broken out of the Green Lantern Corp (He got fed up with the stuff the higher ups keep pulling.) But does he really need to be rocking the Sith Robes?
They gave Green Arrow long hair. Moving on.
Wonder Woman has probably the best. It's nothing special, I don't understand the assassin creed spikes, but yeah, an Amazon is a warrior and consider this the next step up from giving her pants.
Superman. Easiest thing ever: Why do they keep trying to put superman in a t-shirt and call that his costume? 
And worst of all: Batman. Who is now Chappy. Why? I have no clue.
I understand revamping a costume every so often, but there's a point where it gets stupid.

So, I was always interested in Injustice: Gods Among Us. The guys behind Mortal Kombat making a fighting game about the DC super heroes? I mean, Mortal Kombat vs DC wasn't that bad, and the game looked good. So, I got a PS4 and, while looking for a multiplayer game that I could play on the couch with my buddies, I found Injustice. So, I got it.
PROS
-The Story is probably the best one I've ever seen into a fighting game. While it won't make your jaw drop, it is a fun, stupid romp, highlights including a guy headbutting several buildings so hard they crumble.
-The fights are fast paced, and fun to enjoy.
-The environment is utilized beautifully. This was the game's main selling point and I understand why, not only do Stages look more and more wrecked as you fight on, there are two types of characters Gadget and Strength. Strength as you imagined are all about, say, picking up cars and slamming on your opponent, while Gadgets are a bit more subtle with their utilization, however, the best part is hitting your opponent with a heavy attack at the edges of certain stages will trigger a cinematic of, say you're in Metropolis, literally being smashed through several buildings into the next arena of the stage, it's beautifully done and really makes it feel like a comic book fight, particularly one of Superman's.
-That and it allows for Pig Fights in Arkham Asylum's kitchen.
-All the characters have great redesigns, and as a fight goes on, characters will start to show damage.
-There are over sixty alternate costumes, so you're bound to get references to a series you like, such as Superman: Red Son, Earth 2, 
-The supermoves are astounding, They're all well done, and, for lack of any other word, stupid. I mean, what else can you say when when someone punches you all the way through the earth to the other side, turns around and repeats all the way back?

CONS 
-There are too much Batman characters in this game. Batman, Joker and Bane? Totally. I can totally see those characters being included. Nightwing, Catwoman, and Batgirl? Harley at least is portrayed well in the story. Catwoman and Nightwing are essentially in the story for some one note appearances that amount to cameos,
Actually, there's some poor choices in the roster. Forgive me if you're a fan of these characters, but Zatanna, Hawkgirl, Killer Frost? I really don't understand. They feel like they're taking up space that could have been used for better characters. Like Swamp Thing, Animal Man or Devastation (the Wonder Woman villain). Or, if DC really wanted an ice themed character, Captain Cold.
-The Ranged Characters are a bit Overpowered, as my buddy Al showed with Deathstroke, it is is obscenely easy to simply stand at the end of a screen and shoot someone in the face until they're dead, with a lot of characters are lacking any way to get across the screen quick enough to counter.
-I've found Gadget type characters to be a bit weakened, especially if all of the intractable environments are used up. Granted, many of them can hit you from across the screen but still...
-For all the alternate costumes, I think there are several missed opportunities, like I can understand not getting Terrence Stamp's likeness for a Superman 2 Zod, or Heath Ledger's likeness for a dark knight Joker, but it still seems like missed potentials, like Flash not having the original Jay Garrick Costume, Or Bane having a Knightfall Costume, or most damningly, Batman not having an Adam West alt. Shame. 
-Some of the Super moves are extremely disappointing, with either Catwoman or Deathstroke having the most dull.
-On the more technical side of things, the actual combos require you to press the buttons at light speed, you don't need them, it's just annoying.
Yeah, I suggest buying this game, if nothing else than having something fun to play with your friends. If you're a nerd and a video game lover...Just buy this game, no questions asked.

I thumbed through the files, nothing. Nothing. Nothing. I could swear I heard sniffing, but it was just the papers. I paused, expecting to hear something more, but nothing came.
I quietly slid the drawer shut, wincing at the loud wham it made when it closed. I turned, looking at Corby. The Raven stared at me, lit cigarette hanging from it's beak, “Did you find it?” He asked, his voice muffled as he tried to keep smoking as he spoke.
“No.” I said, my voice beginning to show my irritation.
“Then keep looking.” The bird snapped at me, I sighed, going to the next drawer, nope. Nope. Nothing,
Click. Clack. Click. Clack.
I froze, standing up, my head whipping towards the door, I could hear the sniffing again, louder and louder. Something clawed at the door, I quickly crawled over into the empty body bag, zipping it up as best I could from the inside, and leaning against the steel table, I could hear the clinking of chains being grabbed, the sniffing-like a dog hunting for it's prey. I could hear wood slowly splinter, and crack. It was getting through the door, part of me hoped Corby would be okay, but I was mainly focused on myself.
The Chain Wolf had found me,
the door cracked, and splintered, the scraping had stopped and the force was now pounding against the door with abandoned, thrashing, I could hear chains clattering some more. I laid a still as possible, looking up through the faint hole in the top that I just couldn't zip up. I heard the beast snarl.
It sounded nothing like a wolf, it sounded like hell.
With a terrifying, heart stopping crash, the door fell.
The claws on the floor, the dragging chains and the sniffing got louder and louder, I laid as still as possible. Just a zipper and plastic between me and an abomination from the Elder Black. The words repeated in my head, a mantra; The Chained Wolf has your scent.The Chained Wolf has your scent.The Chained Wolf has your scent.
The Chained Wolf
A bit of a teaser for something I've been working on.

I'm thinking about getting back to writing fanfiction, I certainly need to finish a few, though School's a bit obstinate.

JOJO's bizarre adventure -Kakyouin- by DADAIST-Gabriel

Okay, I like the concept, not exactly sure if the idea of a stand breaking apart to reveal it's user is original, but I like it. As for...
