New Mortal Kombat

Recommended Posts

...Haven't been excited for a new MK game in ages.

They better get it right.

Haha. That's impossible, from what Mike was telling me when he pitched Skull Girls to them.

To be honest, the sample combos they've shown remind me of both the 2D Mortal Kombats (1, 2, and 3) and Guilty Gear. Whether it will be balanced like the latter or live up to the former is another question entirely: if they changed the combo-breaker to something like the burst guage, then it might be a good game.

. . . What? Mortal Kombat was my first fighter: I have to pay due respect to my origins.

I'm not sure what to think. Mortal Kombat was cool when I was 12, but unless they drastically changed the game mechanics, I can't see it becoming a good game.

Particularly if they keep the BLOCK BUTTON.

Soul Calibur has a block button. :eng101:

Take that as you will. :kitty:

Meh, if they make 3d models and sell it on name alone I'm sure it will do fine.

Where have we heard that before, right?

I hate to say it, but I'm actually kinda happy to see a new game for this.

Cage will be back as a zombie, you'll see.

Lol, just like Liu Kang.

I won't lie...I miss MK3 Cyberninja grunts.

I fucking loved the cyber ninjas. I played a shitton of Sektor back in the day.

MISSILES MISSLES MISSLES MISSLES.

I just liked the noise they make when running...it's a shame it never made it to later MKs...

"RUVIYAVOUT" or somesuch.

I wish I knew what frequency they used to vocode that stuff.

Looks like they've ditched the styles thing, so that's a good step, but if they go back to the everyone having the exact same normals/command normals then this'll fucking suck. Even if they have unique normals, though, if the combos are canned that'll suck too. The combos they showed here looked fairly promising, though... man. I don't know what to think.
