I wish the cyborg ninjas looked as they did in MK3. I don't like these new suits, they're atrocious.
I think DLC is a great option, it gives them time to complete the characters and realising them while the game is already out, they way the put all the characters in armadeddon was a huge fail most of them seem like the halve of another one. I hope they add costumes to dlc because i preferred the scorpion and raiden from deadly alliance, and the smoke (whom i bet is gonna be the first dlc character) from shaolin monks was awesome.
not saying street fighter X tekken is gonna be bad cause im getting both games but would it have made more sense to make street fighter X MK instead cause if you think about it the game would be a lot more balanced cause the MK fighters have fire balls as well as the street fighter guys or is it just me who thinks the and MK vs DCU was not a bad game It was not the best ether but the problem was it was not M Rated i think had it been M rated a lot more would have liked that being said fatalities were garbage but i have to say that The Jokers was one of my favorites in all the MK games
I cant wait to play this but ive always had one problem with Mortal Kombat no matter how much i love the game and everythings its about i cant get past this one problem and thats the difficulty of pulling off some of the character fatalities i master Scorpin 100% every MK game so hes always easy but as far as other characters im like WTF!? my thing about fatalities is they should be like an enchanced signature move like throwing sub-zero's ice-ball or kung lao's hat during the finish him should initiate a fatality for that specific move if you think about it youve already won the match why should you have to memorize a ridiculous button combination to be rewarded for your 2 round victory?
This really looks like the turn around for a very old franchise, I mean c'mon we all knew that MK Vs. DC was terrible, but this really looks good and I have been playing these games since the Super Nintendo era. Really looks like a good turn around for this franchise!
goddamn dlc, why dont they put the charecters in the original game? wouldn't be surprised if they released someone popular like liu kang on dlc, money hungry ********!
Jax and sonya will be two of the best fighers in the game. I would pick jax and break someones back and grab fools and say gotcha.
It's going to have stiff competition with MvC3 and SF vs Tekken, but I've always loved Mortal Kombat - so I'm getting this day one and picking Nightwolf, Cyrax, and hopefully Kabal.
@ChronoSerge John Tobias left the MK team awhile ago, I doubt it but it would be pretty awesome if he was on the team again......
Ed Boon has been a hero of mine since the first MK. However, he needs a hair transplant right about now. He is looking almost grotesque with his hair. Hell, he makes enough money!! WTH? It does show that he isn't consumed with vanity, but come on Ed.. Do yourself a favor, you're a beautiful person. You deserve it!
All I want for the next chapter is a Mortal Kombat V.S. Killer Instinct. It will be way better than the one with DC... guaranteed!!!
i hope they bring new fatalities and old ones, but the one that i want is custom ones. They also better have online.
And lastly, Boon also said they're "definitely considering" a PC version of Mortal Kombat as well. "Apparently there seems to be a market for that in Europe. Since we're on the Unreal Engine, I guess it's not that much of a change from the console versions." http://www.1up.com/news/mortal-kombat-wont-patches-balancing I hope they add crossplattform multiplayer gameplay if they do make a pc version. Tearing up the MK community would be a bad idea. Check our blazblue from arc system that has this function.
Mk is the best and this one is the most brutal game ive seen...very very cool. This game should be spectacular!
Man, what about PC? It's been more than 10 years since the last MK game on PC, people should write letters to this guy and demand a PC version!
please please please tweak the gameplay speed to be close to MK or MK II. Looking from the gameplay footage so far. seems to be a bit unnatural.
i truly cannot wait for this reboot of MK, i loved playing the first 3 on snes back in the day. but i dont know what im more excited for MvC3 or MK....
The DLC idea is definatly a good one, keep it up Boon, youre doing great as far as I can see so far.
Love that dude's Ramen shirt!! Looks just like the Ramones. I wonder why Gamespot has had no news of the new Mortal Kombat HD remake that they are making? It should be out in December and is a reskinned version of MK 1,2, and UMK3. It is going to feature all new graphics, not just upscaled graphics of the originals. It is also supposed to included a playable demo of this game, Mortal Kombat 2011!! MAn, I can't wait for this.
