A new Mortal Kombat should at least be a little exciting, but the new teaser trailer making the rounds is anything but.
author you're a moron. This game is amazing looking, finally they gave Scorpion a cool look instead of that awful samurai looking crap, now he looks insane. the graphics and fighting looks amazing, and the internal view looks awesome as opposed to it looking terrible in past games. I for one have loved every MK game since the very first and they have, unlike Street Fighter, improved every aspect by leaps and bounds with every new iteration. The SP story of the last MK for instance was great and gave the game a good 20 hours of depth that you won't find in ANY other fighter around. So quit your complaining for page view and get ready for new ninjas :)
So you've loved every MK game and you have the nerve to call the author a moron? How can your words be given any credence when you admit to a lack of impartiality? I'm sorry, but you can't expect everyone to be as much of a sycophant as you are. Different strokes for different folks.
The author IS a moron, but not because of the reasons yellowgerbil outlined. He's a moron because he was expecting the entire game, the story, all the characters, the setting, the new moves, all to be outlined and explained in the very first teaser video. I mean hello, no one does that. It's called a teaser for a reason - to get the fanbase excited who already love the franchise. If the author is complaining that the tiny teaser trailer didn't outline the entire game to "Give him something to be excited about that wasn't in all the previous MK games" then he should wait till that information is made available later on instead of being a snarky little entitled whiner.

"I for one have loved every MK game since the very first and they have, unlike Street Fighter, improved every aspect by leaps and bounds with every new iteration." Give me one aspect of the street fighter gameplay that wasn't tweaked or improved recently with each new release . You can't. "The SP story of the last MK for instance was great and gave the game a good 20 hours of depth that you won't find in ANY other fighter around. " yeah yeah , you guys play a fighting game for it's story ... and the rest of the world for the fun the gameplay provides or his competitive aspect online or at tournaments.. Just because the last MK was above average this time doesn't mean everyone should forgot the years and the years of bad games
Are you sure you about your outburst ? It's indeed too early to whine about the game , but it's obvious and confirmed the video had no gameplay footage .
The trailer was not gameplay it was CG
First of all, that trailer was CG. We don't know what the game looks like. Second of all, did you seriously just praise MK for its story? Third of all, why on earth does shit like this article get approved? One person is not interested in one specific game and that's news? I wouldn't even put stuff like this on a personal blog, because there is literally no point to this article. Why do you need a reason? Why do you expect people to give you a reason? If you don't care about a game just keep not caring about it. Jesus. Remember to downvote the story and the website.
"Second of all, did you seriously just praise MK for its story? " In comparison to every fighting game on the market right now ? It has the best story by a long shot......
It was good for a fighting game , but it's hardly the sole fighting game that had a good story or tentative at it . There are stuff like the whole blazblue franchise . You guys just forget it because it's "animuuuu" and present it like a visual novel , instead of a "cg movie"
yellowgerbil, how can you tell this game looks amazing? Have you seen gameplay yet, because i hate to break it to you but that trailer is nothing but CGI, it has gameplay elements in it like environment weapons and fatalities but the trailer will look nothing like the actual game. Especially considering it is cross gen game and its running on Unreal Engine 3 instead of 4 don't get your hopes up on this game being a next gen looker
Then maybe the game isn't aimed at you, the fans seems to love it and that is all that matters. It is ok to not like a game that others love you know.
One reason????? Its mortal kombat punk...
All right. http://cdn.memegenerator.ne...
Because after reading stupid articles written by idiot kids, you have to take your anger out somewhere...
No one cares that you dont care, OP. some of the reasons a normal person might care is because mortal kombat has made some really great strides in gameplay. Its a blast to mess around with and a rewarding game to master. Coupled withe the fact that the entire fighting game community is bigger now than its ever been thanks to games like SF, marvel, mk and tekken, id say theres a ton of reasons to care about a new MK. you really havent seen anything from netherrealm yet. but yeah again, No one cares that youre not hyped.
Don't know how this article is approved. MKX is not even out yet which means it's still in development
Be happy there is a new MK coming out you spineless paper weight fool, I hate these damned opinion pieces, this shouldn't be here.
There isn't a reason to care. They've shoehorned unfitting rap music into the game and judging by the trailer it looks like they will also be using environmental damage like that terrible injustice game had. This isn't a MK game for hardcore fans. If you want that then go play the last MK.
Heh..With that avatar your not hardcore DMC fan, Mortal Kombat either for that matter.
Give us a reason to care that you dont care.
Wow just wow. Read through half of the article until this paragraph, I stop reading. lol "How many times has a new Mortal Kombat game been teased in this exact manner? Don’t answer that question — I don’t care. How many times have we seen a bunch of boring pre-rendered footage promising the same progress, only to find ourselves playing yet another janky mess months later? Don’t answer that question — I don’t care. I don’t care. I do not care. Not even a little" You give a rant but you don't care about the game... then why do you care by wasting time doing a rant on MKX. lol
