“Lightning Strikes” DCU Online preview clips

IGN has posted some new clips from the “Lightning Strikes” Flash expansion pack for DC Universe Online. You can catch an animated promo video showing the Flash and some villains, as well as a scene of Barry Allen explaining the scenario’s mission to the player. And to top it off (oh man, I am so sorry), three videos showing gameplay against the Top, Pied Piper, and the Trickster. Yes, there are puns, and Piper tells you to “shake your groove thing”.

Eagle-eyed viewers may notice the Trickster is wearing the same costume as in the Infinite Heroes toy line. An interesting choice; perhaps the game designers borrowed the figure’s design art. All in all, it’s pretty cool to see some of the abilities and moves the Rogues have in the game, although not all the new ones are shown (Weather Wizard, Abra Kadabra and Professor Zoom will just have to wait).

    Shake your groove thing?

    *slaps forehead*
    That bit of slang was deplorable even in the days it was fresh from someone’s mouth.

    Has someone tested the water works for excessive iron deposits? I believe that was the cause of the Roman Empire’s fall: descent into insanity due to chemical toxicity.
