VideoGamer: "We got up close and personal with the latest Mortal Kombat… and it's utterly ridiculous."
As if a super paranormal universe full of undead and ninja robots having a giant death tournament wasn't ridiculous back in 1992? You love ridiculous and so do we.
Another no-name gaming fansite trying to get hits with flame bait headlines.
To be fair, Videogamer is actually pretty big in the gaming industry. Disagree with the misleading headline though.
If you think Videogamer is a "no name site", then you must be new to the world of gaming journalism.
Not new, actually a former journalist myself, I've been to E3 3 times now and have been to many invite only industry events, however I haven't been keeping up with the scene as closely for the past few years. I've definitely never heard of them, and regardless this is just click bait.
1st time noticing the site, but I read the comments 1st so no traffic for them :).
well seriously though the game is not meant to be realistic, that is like hating on unreal tournament for its unrealistic gameplay. this guy needs to freaking relax and take a chill pill. So your not a mortal kombat guy thats fine but how are you going to give any valid opinion of the new mortal kombat game if i cant trust you to make a non biased opinion of it that will actually tell me more about what to expect?
and this is the stupidest i have ever read...
Clever title to get clicks.
It's also stupid that it's being called Mortal Kombat when in reality it's just Injustice X with a few MK characters thrown in.
Injustice? You mean the game that is based off of Mortal Kombat and just adds Superheros/villains?
Don't think just because you can speak English, that it makes you knowledgeable enough to use it properly in this situation... It's stupid how Call of duty is called call of duty when in reality it's Modern Warfare.
Uhhhh.... Right back atcha?? Ot: I've never been a huge fighting game fan in general, but I always enjoy the story mode of the MK games. So count me in!
Injustice didn't have block button.
How do you breathe?
This guy is the biggest troll on n4g. Just check his past comments.
its really mortal kombat with injustice features like interacting with the environment
It looks awesome but some fatalities makes the game look like a joke.
Says freaking Van Damme... Of all people...
that's why its been in business for more than two decades. if that's stupid then I don't know what smart is. (in terms of games) I want your gamer tag so I can execute some fatalities. deal?
Someone wasn't old enough to play Mortal Kombat back in the day so it would seem, I hate people like this guy, if everyone voiced their distaste for a certain video-game, World War 15998973 would be under way. This isn't exactly news, just an overblown opinion.
I think you need to actually read the article, dude. They say it's stupid, but ultimately really good, much like the old games. Seems like you've just seen a headline and reacted.
I didn't bother to read it, the title infuriated me man, I'll give it a read now to save face on the subject.
Should headlines be used that way though? It's like going into a job interview reeking of B.O. and having pieces of cheese stuck in your hair while wearing only one tattered flip flop. Bad impression.
Wtf is going on with these articles recently ? Slow news week ?
If i had a big party where people can play all Mortal Kombat games for a full 24 hours with snacks / barbeques, striptease, and drunk together with MK creators or the actress / actors from MK movies, than, you guys need to remind me to not invite people from videogamer.com
Please read the thing, dude. They say they *like* it!
Where's my invite?
Did anybody actually read the article?
I'm guessing some didnt.It's a clever move by the author :P
Why would we? To fall for the clickbait? No, thanks.
these articles and their headlines
Way to kill peoples interest by the headline. They're not gonna read it or give you clicks now purely outta spite.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, are you even suggesting that ninjas do not go to hell and come back as vengeful spirits? Please tell me you're not suggesting that the idea of a tournament in which gods, robots, ninjas, ninja robots, 4-armed monsters, law enforcement officers, criminals, centaurs, etc. get together and fight to the death is, PERHAPS, silly? Tell me you're not suggesting this. ;p
The hell is with all of these titles like "%&**- this game it sucks ass" and then the writer is like "because there will never be a better game than this" or something like that.
Can't wait for MK on PS4, loved the trailer! Hip hop music not so much.
Very excited about mkX, prob move on to ps4 when it comes out and i'm really hoping it comes to vita too like mortal kombat and injustice as i love playing them on the go.
I see they actually like MK in the article, i for one don't & haven't since MK Trilogy on 64 ( was the best version no debate ) All anyone i know has ever wanted from these unintelligent, unholly, human penis holster's, was a roster update ( meaning expand, not remove ) of new & old fighters since removed ( & their different versions & skins over time ) for use with the system used in MK Trilogy 64 with tight online & same perfect gameplay.
spelled unholy wrong, (sry) & i'm not religious & do not "believe" just used it in the hope that maybe someone responsible for what's happened to MK all these years is deeply religious & somehow reads this & it hurts them...there i said it
She looks like the moon - she says "it's your eyes", She sees everything - she knows me too well......Future Islands - Like The Moon ( you can thank me later ) into the beating again, i know PC & emulation exists & i think someone has done or is doing a MK 64 for PC styled game playable online n all that but, we all should be playing a damn fine game by now my friends.
I was about to blow up glad I didn't over react lol I got a bad habit of that
click bait article... and a poor read.
