DC Universe Online Gets Dick...Grayson, That Is

Posted by G-Man (30664 posts) - - Show Bio


DC Universe Online is getting closer, but it sure feels like we've been waiting for some time now for Nightwing to make his appearance.  Saying that, I'd rather the game developers take their time to do it right.  The problem is, some characters developed might become  outdated.   
 
Recently, screenshots have made their way online showing Dick Grayson as Nightwing even though we know he is now Batman.  Obviously this makes the most sense since the general audience will not be up-to-date with the current story-arc.  Besides, I still consider Bruce Wayne to be the true Batman.  
 
So if you've been wondering what Dick will look like, here's some images of Dick beating off the bad guys.

Are you looking forward to playing with Dick?  Do you think it'll be hard knowing that his Nightwing persona doesn't exist anymore?  What other characters are you looking forward to seeing?

ummmmm.......there are so many innuendos in the article that I'm not really sure what my response should be....yes....I am looking forward to playing with Dick.....see that just sounds wrong 
 
I'm glad that they're taking so long on this game...I'd rather them take a long time and get it right then for them to rush it and have the game suck....hopefully they're planning a lot of DLC and plan on keeping the game going for a long time

From what I've been hearing. They are going to be having scenarios based on some classic events. One I heard about is assisting Superman in his fight with Doomsday. I don't believe they are going for any sort of continuity with the comics. Though a Blackest Night would be a pretty cool future event to play through. Even more so if you can select a character who is a Black Lantern.

G-man when is the release date suppose to be? I am looking forward to this game. I hope they do us all "justice" with the character creation. This game will be the reason why I will buy a Playstation 3.

@FoxxFireArt: from what I've heard there will eventually be crossovers between the comics and the game...they said that there's even a chance that some player created characters would appear in the comics

@G-Man: In an interview that Ryan did at either E3 or GDC earlier this year the devs said they weren't going with recent story-lines and were purposefully leaving Bruce as Bats and Dick as Nightwing for a more general DC-feel to the game. The interviewee in question specifically addressed the issue you raise in this article back then. And to be honest I agree that Bruce is and always will be the true Batman so I've no problem with seeing Nightwing running around. Tim as Red Robin? Now that's a different story, I'll miss him.

I really want this game when it comes out. It looks awesome. Like World of Warcraft, except with superheroes in.
#23 Posted by danhimself (22302 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the reason that I'm so excited about this game is that it's going to be on PS3...I really got into WoW for a little bit but to fully enjoy a PC game you need to have a very expensive PC and I was only playing on my laptop so I didn't play it that long...but with this being on a console that I already have I don't have to worry about my machine not being up to spec

Cool beans, apparently you've got a better memory than I have, completely forgot until I'd searched for info on the game.

Nice one more game to add to my PS3 wish list. Looks great!

lesson we learn from these pictures: dont F with Titans.

is it only on PC?

@G-Man: yes, I think Dick will be hard for DCUO.
 
Also they need to release the game before their 2005 era graphics get laughed off at the eventual game launch. Anyone else notice in image 5 Raven takes an uppercut to the lady bits?

Good, good.

I just have the unfair advantage that they work downstairs from me....or did until we moved to a bigger office.  But they're still practically next door.  But when I heard they interviewed the dude about it, I watched it right away.
