With less than 20 hours away, new information from next generation Mortal Kombat 8 will finally be revealed.
For debate: New Mortal Kombat or New Street Fighter which one is gonna be better? Edit: Dont agree with me. Debate with me.
since i haven't seen much of either, i gonna have to say Tekken will be better than both.
Soul Calibur is gonna blow everything out of the water anywayz.
trilogy - broken MK4 - broken Mk Gold - broken Dead alliance - broken Deception - broken Armageddon - very broken Street Fighter 4's graphics do disappoint me and fans but the gameplay always comes first for Capcom. Unless Midway focuses on gameplay first with Mk8, it could end up being another broken Mortal Kombat game that will just look good. I love Mortal Kombat but these are just the facts.
I like both franchises, but my vote would go to Mortal Kombat by a shave. Pulling off a 12 hit, followed by a Fatality is as satisfying as it is embarassing to whoever is on the recieving end.
Breakfast, Streetfighter4 as usual by a LANDSLIDE. Mortal Kombat gameplay has never got anywhere close to the fluidness of the Capcom title.
I'm still an MK fan and have been since the original hit the arcades years ago. I own pretty much every MK title to date and do enjoy them immensley but MK has always been about the contraversial, blood, gore, fatalities and over the top characters. Sadly, it's never seemed to put gameplay first.
That being said, I still have high hopes for the next title and will probably buy it day one as long as they go back to the original style fatalities and move away from that custom crap from the last game.
It's wrong to say MK has weaker gameplay than SF. It's like comparing a W-RPG like Oblivion or Diablo to a J-RPG like Final Fantasy. MK's gameplay is great in a completely different way.
Plus story and character wise, MK beats the crap out of any other fighter. Add gore and fatality and...
Also, MK:DA and MK:D both are considered to be among best fighters of last gen and MK:D actually won all of the best fighter awards at it's years E3.
YOU WIN =P
You mean... Brutality!
Wow, how do you perform that move? Up and High Kick? XD
Hara Kiri for you then. Edit: Breakfast, you just reminded me of what a mistake they did with the last game. Please No more. I will admit the "kreate a kharacter" was "kool" but so many people used all the cheap moves.
What the hell is "Hara Kiri"? lol...oh i just checked wiki...i never played that game. how bout this one. Kreate-A-Fatality!
I did a basic match numbers to letters, and in the first 4 lines, I got: e s y r o t s l i f e l e e r f d n a l s i v e r s v e d e n i l n o d t o d d a e r d e i l a life and story is in the first one free and land in the second online vs in the third lied, read, dot in forth. I haven't done the rest. :\ Who's good at cracking codes?
esyrotslifel = life + story [l, e, s remaining] eerfdnalsive = deserve + final rsvedenilnod = online + vs + red toddaerdeila = tear + dead + lord [i remaining] Fun fun!
Nice but MK fans already tried it and took many words out. No luck so far though...
Its about time been waiting for ever hope its not a disaster like the last one
But I think Tekken has the best gameplay
I'm with you on characters and story but gameplay wise, MK is a western fighter and completely different from J-fighters. As for j-fighter gameplay, I have to go with SF and SC.
OMG No Way.....LOL
I completely forgot about that countdown, good thing too. I seriously hope that info is more than just mention of a new title and general info like it will have new characters and story etc, that's already known.
I'm a noob when it comes to this (no pun intended) What I got: e s y r o t s l i f e l <----life, story e e r f d n a l s i v e <----free, land r s v e d e n i l n o d <----online, vs t o d d a e r d e i l a <----lied, read, dot u l w o r g a e e s v c <----growl, see r k o m b a t d p h e r <----kombat n i n i a r a e p s d a <----spear, rain a m e m i r c e a e r n <----crime r e v i t c e p s r e p <----perspective o z i e w d a r k t a r <----dark u e c m o n e v h o m e <----home, venom n e t m a o d e e l b t <----bleed, net d r i i n o r t l o o f <----fool, tron e f m l t e l e p o r t <----teleport l e t s a g e v w i i w <---- let's age wii I'm assuming it's coming to all 3 platforms (wii, home, online vs). That's all I could decipher.
idk i might be in the minority in this but i reeeeeeealy didn't like the newer mortal kombat games everyone loved em i didn't, just didn't sit well with me. I hope they keep the multiple style thing which i thought was cool but it the deadly alliance wasn't that fun to me.....WHOOPSIES!!!
Your soul, is mine!!!
Reminds of the orc campaign ending in WarCraft III. "HIS BLOOD.....IS MINE!!!!" *SHTING!* *sword sticks in ground*
I'd still give anything to have a Killer Instinct 3. :(
whose in charge of the MK games now is it Tobias or Boon? anyway didnt one oe the other say they were going to use the Unreal Engine to make the game look more gritty? hope they start new and shape up after ARMAGEDDON that was such a disappointment to me :(
But I expectd more. LIKE A CUTSCENE AFTER YOU KILL BLAZE COMPLETING THE STORY.BT NO.. Text. i love words.especially after killing the boss of Armageddon.yeah rite. midway dont screw up ! ! Thats easy for u to do
Speaking of that phrase. How do you trigger it on MKII? If you guys know what I'm talking about. All I remember is you do an uppercut and some random guy's picture flies in from the bottom right and shouts YUP HEEE!!!! I wonder why that's even in there. Either way it's fularious when you're unaware of it and you've been up for 2 nights in a row fueled off monster. To the topic: The latest MK I played was MKIII on SNES. From what I've heard the past ones have been crap... krap. I may pick this up if the new mortal kombat ends up being cool... erm... kool...
I assume you mean "toasty". That's Dan Forden. He sometimes appears when you connect with an uppercut or Kung Lao's energy spin. During the Portal stage, connect with an uppercut or Kung Lao's spin. Then watch the lower-right corner of the screen. If the head pops up and you hear "toasty!" hold down and press START. This lets you fight against Smoke.
When you freeze with Sub, he appears saying "Frosty" - MK3, UMK3, MKT
Hm, what does he say when you uppercut Liu Kang as he does his flying kick? Is it Ouchy? Im talking about MKII right now though. Just looked on wiki, i guess it is toasty, but why is it appearing when I'm playing as liu kang, and also liu kang, and I get uppercutted while doing my flying kick. hmph.. Anyway, thanks for telling me, +bubbles!
choose your victory!!
It probably goes diagonally, across, down, and up (Well maybe not up).
Test your Might!!!
You weak pathetic FOOL - Mr. T
I pity the FOOL - Shao Khan
it nice this time I loved MK2, MK3 and MKU but after that it was no more what it used to be. Revive the series of mediocrity Midway.
I don't want it to be as doofy looking as it was in Deception and shizz. I think the game characters themselves looked to goofy, same for the fighting. It was fun but just too goofy.
If this game is going to be good they need to devote a whole lot of time to making the platforming adventure an A+ part of the game and not just an after thought, if that is what they must do. I propose they make a fighting game and fighting game only. I would love to see a more robust combo system the likes of Killer Instinct, also. My fear is that this will fall into the same category as MK:Deception, at first it will appear good because it is new and fresh for the series, but it won't really be any good at all.
Theres weapons in it? Since theyve had it..MK didnt seem rite.bt maybe if they dnt,sum people may take that as a step bk?
kai, jax, sub-zero, johnny cage, reiko, ermac, darrius, stryker, raiden, and kintaro are my fav characters thats a record 4 most liked characters in a fighting game (for me) since tekken, street fighter, and soul calibur, just want u 2 use the asian characters. the fighting system just sucks they need 2 make it like tekken just with special moves and no hara kiri that was no fun, and it was a waste. just give each fighter 4 fatalities. oh and i only like some of the characters i listed cuase of cool character design. characters like kai and darrius need more straight foward moves, by know i hope kai fire balls could be shot foward, and his kick could have more variations like mid, high, or low and a cancel.
You might need to find a few new favorites... Only a few characters are expected to return, with most of the fighters being new...
What happened to MK~5,6,& 7? How did it jump to MK8 all of a sudden? Please no more Babyalities Animalalities or Friendship! Thank U!
Nothing is missing. MK5, 6 and 7 came out for PS2. MK5 was Deadly Alliance with a V behind it's logo. MK: Deception was 6 and Armageddon was 7.
This game should be finished by now, and ed boon can at least come up with something more inventive than this terrible game.
It's been announced as a PS3 Exclusive which is gonna be sweet.
