Infinite Crisis Videogame, anybody else CONFUSED?

Hey, remember that DC event from 2005 called Infinite Crisis where not much happened, except the introduction of a lot of angry characters? DC and developer Turbine studios have decided that the storyline is totally awesome and needs its own videogame.  Please do not ask why, because there is no good answer considering there are currently dozens of interesting storylines that exist at DC much better suited for launching into a videogame.  Although this idea is bizarre, and probably will not work, there is a silver lining: the Infinite Worlds presents many new characters to portray and these characters can be introduced to new fans for the first time.  In a world where the only DC Superheroes that people care about are Superman and Batman, new exposure to some of the old heroes is always a good thing to help the comic book industry stay afloat.

The videogame is described as a multiplayer online battle arena game or (MOBA) for short. Luckily for the comic book fanboys, the game is also set to feature a ton of different comic book characters. The announcement trailer gives a peek at the Nightmare Batman and Catwoman from Gotham by Gaslight. This alone is enough to get a tear streaming down the cheek of any longtime DC fanboy. The president of Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, Martin Tremblay had this quote when announcing the game.

“We are thrilled to bring Infinite Crisis, a truly competitive experience featuring the DC Comics lore and characters, to the MOBA genre, Turbine is a pioneer in online gaming and combined with the amazing world of DC Comics, they are executing on a game concept that expands the MOBA genre.”

Jeffrey Steefel, an executive at Turbine chimed in about the game as well.

“With a game that features fast-paced action, a major story arc, destructible environments, catastrophic events and a deep roster of iconic DC Comics characters.
