A lot has changed since Injustice: Gods Among Us first released on the App Store. The roster has gotten bigger, lots of little things have been tweaked, and the game has generally been made all the better for it. The new 2.0 update looks like it’s doing all that, and more.
First and foremost is the addition of online multiplayer. That’s right, now you can pit your elite Batman against your friends and mock their pitiful bronze Green Lantern over the internet! That’s not sarcasm, it actually sounds pretty sweet. Then there’s the inclusion of leaderboards, so you can be even more competitive with each other. Match replays will probably help with that, too. A bunch of new characters have been made available as well, including Shazam and Catwoman from Batman Returns. And what better way to break those new characters in then by equipping them with new gear cards that can be attached to characters to boost their stats?
You can download the newest version of Injustice: Gods Among Us right now for free.
The game makes the player pick sides. Does one help the Living Machines Lab or work to thwart it? Multiple choices, interactions and differing endings sew the gameplay together. The game promises to flow smoothly with the beginning of the movie.
Transcendence: Origins is available for free on the App Store.

Warner Bros has just released LEGO Legends of CHIMA Online, which, as the name hints at, is an online multiplayer adventure with solo play options.
The game is based on the LEGO CHIMA universe, where animals take on human characteristics and the eight animal tribes fight to control CHI. Folks familiar with the toys and/or cartoon will find many familiar elements. It allows the player to select from one of four tribes, and to customize a warrior to battle the other four tribes; it also allows one to create weapons and outposts, and to perform trades and alliances with other online players. There is also the ability to pick up a paused or interrupted game from other online portals.
LEGO Legends of CHIMA Online is available for free on the App Store.

Have you been enjoying the hybrid CCG/one-touch fighting game that is Injustice: Gods Among Us? Do you still play it regularly? Well if so, keep at it. And if not you might want to dive back in.
The freemium fighter featuring fan-favorite DC characters (sorry, I ran out of Fs) has recently surpassed one billion (one BILLION) play sessions, and to celebrate Warner Bros. Interactive is giving players a chance to earn major Power Credits. Just play the game for a bit from today (1/30) through Sunday (2/2) and you’ll bank 30,000 of the things. That’s 30K Power Credits just for playing through the weekend. Not a bad deal, right?
If you already have Injustice: Gods Among Us, just keep playing. Otherwise, if you’d like to take advantage of the offer, you can download it for free and start pummeling Sinestro. Because Sinestro is a jerk.

Bastion drops its price for a limited time only as it’s currently available for $0.99 cents. If you haven’t experienced this title yet, you’re missing out on beautiful artwork and a well narrated story. In our review, Chris Kirby mentions, “For those who have never played Bastion, you have no excuse now. It’s a steal – $4.99 for the full game – and it’s a beautiful, clever, absolutely one-of-a-kind experience. Buy it. Then tell someone else to buy it.”
A steal for $4.99, he says. You have no excuse at $0.99 cents.
Warner Brothers has released a new Hobbit movie tie-in app. It gives you both the backstory of the movie and lots of behind the scenes info on the filming of the Hobbit movies. Here’s list of some of what’s included:
• Interactive Map of Middle-Earth
• 360º views of scenic locations and settings
• “The Scroll,” a narrative art piece
• Animated lenticular character portraits
• Peter Jackson’s Production Journals
• Character image galleries and bios
• Downloads for iPad, iPhone, and Facebook
• Social integration with Facebook and Twitter
Sneaking candid shots of yourself and sharing them with the world has become a staple of the iOS ownership experience. There was always the issue of security when it came to apps like instagram. Under most circumstances your photos were essentially being broadcast into the ether, for everyone with an internet connection to consume. Who would you expect to come to the aid of users who wanted to share their images in a more discrete manner? If you guessed Warner Bros. you may want to consider getting your head checked, but oddly enough that is actually the correct answer.
Despite coming from a completely unlikely source, outmywindow is a hybrid of social networking and photo storage that allows you full control of who can see your photos. Users can even import images from their iOS libraries and create albums to once again share with only those that are worthy of permission. The app is free and looks to be a solid alternative to other providers on the market. Plus, when they are offering 5GB of free storage, there is always an added incentive.
A good many people have been enjoying collecting starites since Scribblenauts Remix first hit the App Store. It’s a pretty nifty game, after all. The down-side to games like this is that they eventually end once each level has been completed. There’s always the fun of revisiting completed stages in order to see what other bizarre ways its puzzles can be solved, but once it’s done it’s pretty much done. Until the developers release more levels for it, that is.
5th Cell has just made a new batch of 20 levels available for purchase, on top of the preexisting 50. I’m sure there are at least a few players out there who’ve been wishing there was more for them to do since they ran out of content, and an announcement like this should certainly brighten their day. Now they’ve got 20 more levels to bombard with adjectives and nouns as they attempt to grab that starite and have a good laugh in the process.
The level pack is available right now via in-app purchase, and will only set players back $0.99
