I’ve decided today that I’m going to take a hiatus from playing FPS or first-person-shooters. After 10 years of fragging, LANning, sniping and clanning, I’m swapping my trigger finger for combo moves. To be honest, the new Elite Premium nickel-and-dime-BS system that Activision implemented for Modern Warfare 3 made me so disappointed that I stopped playing several months ago.
But beyond the BS, the new swatch of upcoming fighting games helped me make an easy decision. Persona4 Arena and Playstation All-Star Battle Royale look great. I’m intrigued by the cross-fighting on the Playstation 3 and Vita. I’ve been playing video games for a while and this will be the first time, in my experience, that a console and portable will be able to play against each other. But the top of my list is Injustice: Gods Among Us from NetherRealm Studios and Ed Boon, the video game icon behind Mortal Kombat.
