In case there was any doubt in your mind, we have proof positive it was just a simulation of gameplay and not the genuine article.
I tend to think of articles like this as "buzz kill articles". Let's just be excited there is a brand new Mortal Kombat game when MK9 was so good
I liked the online in MK reboot better than Injustice online, especially the KOTH, so I'm hoping it makes a return in this one the way it was in MK. And hopefully they bring back 2v2.
well, pointing out that it's CG doesn't mean we're not excited. It's just that a lot of people didn't realize this and it's better to point it out right away to avoid misunderstandings
Don't you mean "Sub-Zero" gameplay?
Injustice was so broken when it came out. Par for the course with new fighting games though. It's come a ways since then. The AI is still garbage though. Mk9 is still a better game technically, but the sequel should show lots of improvements. Can't wait to see what MK10 will look like on next gen. "Injustice Too"...
Yeah that is a buzz kill. Honestly it looked in game models and everything with maybe unique camera angles that wouldnt be in the game. For CGI then I'd say it looks pretty poor, because the current gen systems could definitely do those graphics. Compromised because of last generation sounds like.
Confirming that a trailer is CGI is being a "buzz kill"? Maybe you need to...um, kill YOUR buzz because you're drunk. Nailed it.
Well dah... OT: I couldn't be happier if they released it exactly like that! No HUD no nothing just you, your opponent and the level nothing else distracting.! Maybe a very faint health bar and timer that only appear when you get hit or when the time comes down to, maybe 30 secs, that's it! no fancy hit FX and shit just that brutal hit collision effect we've seen here! Man that would be really, really good!
That's a no-brainer.
Exactly. And to the author of this article, I refer you to the image provided in the link: https://img.4plebs.org/boar...
"obviously" yes , but not because of the graphics. After seeing The order 1886 , Ryse , The Division...These types of graphics don't seem impossible to achieve. No , it was "obvious", because it's another cross-gen title. (i.e. , another watch dogs fiasco)
No shit OT Who couldn't tell it was a movie/teaser?
I think a lot of people thought it was using the game engine. Just because it has flashy camera angles and things you wouldn't find in a game, doesn't mean it isn't rendered using the engine. Either way I'm sure the next-gen MK will look great.
Implying that it won't look as good as this? Well i'm not buying then. Besides, how is it 'obvious'? Those little parts look like the usual camera that Mortal Kombat has.
How anyone could think this was gameplay is beyond me, but I did see a lot of people who thought it was in-game footage. But the real game could look close to that, with the exception of the animation which cannot possibly look this seamless in a real game. The camera, too, will not zoom-in on the cool parts like it did in the trailer, because that would prevent the players from seeing what's actually going on. As soon as they start fighting and the trailer starts mimmicking an actual mortal kombat fight, you can tell right away that those are not animations that are usable in a game context. Especially the way they are blocking attacks
To be fair for a few phases it does adopt the viewpoint of a usual MK fight and the camera . The rest is wishful thinking and dashed hopes for a few
Wishful thinking my ass. I hope The Order, UC4, and Quantum Break raises the standards for the entire industry in terms of visuals. This gen is about blurring the lines between gameplay and CGI. I understand that in 2014 devs still havent had enough time with these consoles, but as of 2015, there are no more excuses. I'm not buying any cross gen b.s. I'm not supporting any dev that doesn't devote all their resources into next-gen consoles/PCs. By doing so, your supporting stagnation.
I'm not saying it's even impossible to achieve . But i sure wasnt expecting it from NetherRealms ., i dont have that kind of faith in them . A big clue was how smooth the animation was compared to the stiff usual MK style ... a dead giveaway to CGI
@logicwin not enough owners to justify just focusing on next gen bro
@baka thats funny I thought it had the trademark mk stiff choreography. They need to stop mocapping random people and get some fighters with good form. I knew it wasn't gameplay but it did show a few things that will be in the game like xray moves and environment weapons. I liked it but im a scorpion fan.
Nah ingame stuff is usually even more stiff . The hitboxes seemed to weird to for it to be ingame too
Sadly there's many youtube comments written by wishful thinking children who want to believe things they know deep down are not true. Taking this as a fact and spreading it out around to everybody creating false information. That's why this article exists
Sure. But... A small part of me was hoping that its at least representing game play elements. The environmental weapons, interaction, area specific fatalities, new x ray mode, super moves you can "charge" Ala street fighter... Oh. And that slow mo effect outside of x ray mode would be sweet. 9 was so good... They could just tweak it a bit for next gen. Add new characters. And I'd still buy it day 1.
Not gonna lie I thought next-generation fighting games was here lol... oh well.
Fighting games barely changed from PS2->PS3. I knew this was too good to be true.
Dammit I thought that was actual Ps4 footage tho, game would be nice if it could match that cgi tho!
So what you are saying is we should take this gameplay with a grain of salt... To the eye!!! Bwahaha I'm evil! "Finish him!" *rips random guy in half* "Get over here!" *signals buddies over with ripped in half random guy corpse.* "Fatality!" *uses random guy's half bod as a makeshift double dutch jump rope with buddies* ...........:/ wut did I just type
Gameplay no but in-game engine yes.
"in-game engine yes"... care to elaborate on how you know this?
There is no way it's the in game engine with that kind of animation
I don't think anyone was debating whether the trailer was CGI or in game footage. The distinction is obvious.
A kick ass cinematic.
Obviously but it did show of things indicative of gameplay mechanics. Much like Injustice's Engine their is plenty of background to foreground interaction. it also seems that certain characters will be able to uniquely effect parts of the environment. "Sub-zero breaking the tree branch and freezing it then using it in battle" It'll be awesome to see. I'll be all over this on Next year!
I don't care i'm just excited that there another MK game in the making
No sh** sherlock, was still fun to watch.
That's fine. This is just a teaser trailer for a game coming out next year. A teaser is just meant to let people know it exists and to build up hype.
All I needed.
But is this really a confirmation that it had ZERO gameplay in it......Elements from that trailer could be CG done by Digital Dimension mixed with in engine gameplay....... Itd be a shame for MKX to look much worse than that trailer
The thing is, it's not the graphics that are suspicious; it's the animation and general dynamic of the fight. The hits connect too smoothly, the parries match the parried attacks too perfectly, all of the moves are unique and never get repeated... everything looks too scripted for it to be gameplay footage, even if it was enhanced with CG
this will be a long 7 day wait til E3
I don't see any excuse for the gameplay visuals not being on par (or better) than that trailer. Its a next-gen game that likely isn't coming out for another year. Why shouldn't it look like that?
I'm ready... I'll be coming with the infinite leg sweep! You better watch out!
I am just glad they are making another Mortal Kombat game.
It also had garbage music playing over it. Knowing Ed Boon Wizard Kauliflower will probably be a character you play as for people who once again get duped into buying a season pass. Either that or they'll actually have that song playing during the game. Either way it's trash. Classic NetherRealm...Even their CGI has poor animation.
Okay, but what does that have to do with the conversation going on in this article? This article has nothing to do with the trailer's music. On topic: Don't worry, people. MK 9 also got a CG trailer before it's actual gameplay trailer. This is nothing new.
Shut your lame self up.
Only an idiot would think otherwise.
how did this shit get approved and by whom?
I don't care about that. Just get this out I can't wait. The best of the best fighting games.
No last gen consoles. Next gen only. And make it dark like MK 2 was. All I want.
That was an awesome trailer tho. Too had the game won't look nearly that good thanks to it being cross gen. Boo ! Maybe a little better than Injustice on PS4. Oh well still day 1.
No shit? I thought it was gameplay /s
only ignorant gamers thought that was real gameplay.....
It doesn't matter. What matters is the music simply butchered the entire trailer. Who was the idiot who thought that song (if you could even call it a song) fitted with the trailer? It's more like a blatant advertisement for whatever his face is who... "rapped" it.
Yeah knew that but MKX will look better than MK9 for sure. I'm excited for it.
the one thing i absolutely hate the most besides annoucing your game 2 years early. am i supposed to be excited for a cgi trailer which will most likely never represent what the final product will play or look like? i absolutely hate it!gameplay or don't show up at all. IT IS FALSE ADVERTISEMENT AND LAWSUITS MAY FOLLOW.
I completely agree! It's so annoying. Hype a game years early and with a trailer that doesn't represent gameplay and wonder why sales fall short? Hmmm....
I dont always mind actually but it depends on the genre . Do i care for a rpg to flaunt it's cgi for hype and mood ? nope For a fighting ? Yes i do . Who cares about intros and cgi for those ? We just press start , select local or online multiplayer and fight
*insert "no shit sherlock" picture from the internet here*
The only thing I got out of the trailer is that MK10 will have interactive environment like Injustice.
I could easily tell the trailer was CGI with the camera angles they used. What I don't like is when trailers like that are used and when the game comes out it's not representing the final product at all. Sooner or later people are going to just brush off trailers because they're (many times) all lies. I want to see a trailer that represents the game, no bs and not cut corners. Now I would like to think these new systems can achieve graphics like this. Especially in a fighting game. My only other "beef" was the music used and I'm not big on the environment stuff. They tried things like that before and it wasn't fun (weapons anyway)
it looks like in game graphics to me even though it wasnt gameplay
Really? I had no idea it wasn't gameplay. /s
shame. was hoping they make it like, when u put in a combo it will have different animations depending on the environment. still need to use the same button combination but the characters making different animations. would have been awesome
Sub zero broke the branch off and turn it into ICE that was cool!!!
you don't say
Well..duh Most casuals thought it was gameplay lolz
lol, that's bullshit. this was not pre-rendered. It wasnt animated through a controller, but it for sure wasn't CG the whole way through.
