Ed Boon goes in depth about the breadth of new gameplay features in Mortal Kombat while keeping the game rooted in traditional gameplay.
@maxguevera They don't limp in MK because they're real men (or women) LOL. If the character started limping they would look like a little wuss that cant take a few broken bones.
@Grim_Reaper007 Hey man, there's always been ice LOL. I just think it looks so sweet how they take damage throughout the match, blood all over them, flesh hanging then after you pull off an X-ray they just get back up like nothing has happen!? Give me a limp or something to think, wow this guys just took a beating! Love the X-ray, but just think it needs toning down e.g. break ribs and burst organs, shattering someones jaw... twice! How are you going to be standing, it's like a fatality.
For anybody waiting for a demo from what I understand it's only available for PS+ users. The demo for regular PSN users is released on the 15th.
@maxguevera You joking? Call that unrealistic, but shooting ice from your fists and freezing someone you don't mention? I don't think this game is in any way meant to be realistic, which is a good thing. Personally i think the x-ray moves look pretty cool, its a next gen brutal MK touch.
Looks like this gonna be the best fighting game of 2011. MvC3 was a huge letdown and a disappointment, will be trading it for this game. Can't wait for the demo.
oh and ed boon is the man. he really loves games and you can see how proud he his of his baby and its refreshing
@maxguevera so youre totally fine with shooting fireballs and a lizard man (reptile) and teleporting and cyborg ninjas and a 4 armed half dragon man and the copious amounts of blood spilled during each fight but youre complaining about the lack of realism in the xray attacks. wow dude. gimme youre gamer tag so when this comes out, i can repeatedly xray attack you as many times as possible.
I think the X-ray moves are too unrealistic, I mean you wouldn't be walking if someone broke your neck twice or both leg bones. Shame they didn't fine tune the realism by toning some stuff down a bit. In saying that, minor complaint as the game looks so, so good!
@beak1313 The PSN store isn't updated at midnight, it's usually updated late in the afternoon. So make sure to get some rest. I can't wait to try that demo too!
Sonia's boobs are distractingly bigger, and she doesn't look as pretty as her version from MK3, one of the best looking fighting game characters IMO.
I pre ordered the kollectors (GAMESTOP) edition for ps3 and the tournament edition (BESTBUY) for my X box 360!!! MK Is what I grew up Gaming with... that and mega man SO I have to go all out with this!! Im Freaking Exited FOr this MK.... I am all about the arcade mode ... It sounds like BOON is giving us fans a awesome Arcade MOde, over 13 hours of arcade gameplay!?!? IN A FIGHTING GAME!?!? WITH STORIES FOR all CHARACTERS!! HOLY SHMOKES!! I love it! We get the tower too!!! Oh yeah and TAG TEAM!! Thats big time new for the MK series!! I hope the online gameplay is Nice and smooth... I have family and friends I need to perform fatalities on that live all over the place..... IM so hyped at this point that even if the game does suck I really wont notice it..... 6 More weeks man... 6 more weeks!
The game looks great...but the fighters just look so stiff! Still gonna' get it... Also wish they'd bring back MKII style combos.... :-) still gonna' get it...
Only issue I have so far is that you can buy your way past the challenge tower parts. Does that mean the final (300th) one can be bought too? If not then I guess it is ok :P.
Already pre-ordered this game, I cannot wait to kick some ass. I hope its as good as they say its going to be
[quote]Is Kratos gonna be in the Xbox 360 version as well?[/quote] LMAO. Let us know when you get God of War.
@BxBadBoy69 No definitely not. Sony probably paid Warner Bros a lot of money to have him in MK. I don't think that the 360 has any exclusive character. Of course Kratos won't be aloud in the tournament scene or anything like that. I'm rreally interested to see how he'll play though. I couldn't think of a better fighting game that suit Kratos' style and character design so well.
This is going to be the first game I've ever bought an expensive special edition on... It's going to bring all my nostalgic childhood memories back, so awesome.
Some of you hardcore MK players might laugh at fatality training, but to a gamer like me it's a god send.
