Midway just sent the Joker render to IGN.
WHY SO SERIOUS? AWESOMEEEE!!!! Joker is in. He looks cool too. Now if only Doomsday was in...
they kinda have to have Doomsday... Pains me to say this as a Batman kinda guy; but, no one else legitimately can beat Supes.
Best tag line for the Joker yet, and one of the best acting performances of all time, Heath Ledger acted that part out so flawlessly.
Nevers, actually everyone from MK can beat Supes because Man of Steel is weak against magic (Not in older books though) and almost every MK fighter is a magic user. Tmac, sorry but that is not one of the best acting performances of all time. No. That is THE best performance of all time, PERIOD!
RIP Heath Ledger
Indeed rest in peace. He gave us THE ultimate performance and the ultimate villain.
@Nevers: That's sort of true. Superman is obviously the most powerful hero in the DC universe, but he also has some of the biggest weaknesses. Kryptonite is a huge one and he's pretty weak against magic as well. I think we all saw Batman take him down in Frank Miller's Dark Knight.
I just didn't have time to get into a debate about it and write an essay about having a special with a Green Arrow cameo shafting Supes with Krypto... Like I said.. I'm a Batman guy. I've been in lots a debates with Super-fans about taking the Supester down. And yeah ... didn't realize, tho I kinda should have, that the MK chars were magical... so yeah that's a pretty decent shot. Thanks for setting me straight 8] I just think besides Lex, they really have to get Doomsday in there.
Lex ? Cant really picture Lex take on anyone if a striaght up fight. I hate the joker pic btw after seeing Dark Knight its just to cartoonie. Heath Ledger made the joke sick and disturbing almost scary. I dont you cant ever go back to him being a clown after you seen him played by Heath Ledger
That's coool. :3
Yeah, it's indeed cool. Good timing too. Dark Knight movie, Comic Con... Joker RULES!
I was hoping to see a new MK villain too :( (like Reptile, Mileena or Shao Kahn). Still, beating people with Joker's stick is gonna be FUN!
Looool, will be. Or using the laughing gas. xD; I also wanna see more villians. Maybe someone like Motaro. o-o I haven't played Mortal Kombat games since MK4. o_0;
Yeah, definitly more villains though more than others, I want to see Mileena, Shao Kahn and Baraka. As for MK5-7, get the MK Kollection for PS2 and try them for the story. I love MK5 (DA) and MK6 (D) personally but MK7 (A) is HORRIBLE!
I think MK went downhill after 4 for me. The storyline had my head spinning. x-x
After MK4 everybody starts dying, and dying doesn't mske a good game (exept for GTA of course XD)
I actully loved MK5's story more than others and killing Liu Kang was the best move MK team could have done for the game. I may be biased since MKDA is my fave MK game.
That looks A LOT better than the DC Universe render. I read Jim Lee was redoing the Joker for that game. Let's hope he's seen this. Excellent work. I may mess around and pick this up...
God, the Joker in DC Univers Online looked HORRIBLE! Long chin and that disgustingly cartoonish look is unbearable, specially after the Dark Knight version. At least here, Joker has some of sinister look of the books.
yes he did look horrible in DC univers online
That design yes , i dont like lee's Joker . However the graphics and overall other designs of DC universe Online looks far better than MK vs DC (wich is imo quite odd and silly)
Awesome! The dark night was sick! Go see it if you haven't!
r.I.P Heath Ledger
I mean, Heath Ledger died Q1 2008, right? Yet The Dark Knight wasn't released until last week... ...Were they done shooting the movie THAT early?? =I
Actually the main shooting of the movie was done long before Ledger passed away. Most Hollywood films have to race against time before their release but NOT the Dark Knight. Nolan wanted the perfect film and he took his time and gave us the true Dark Knight.
on Batman and I found out that Pane broke his back leaving him unable to walk or something. So the new batman came with a new high tech batman suit and he messed up Pane. I also heard the Doomsday and Superman faced off and both died which is sad.
...Bane. And I agree, he would be a great character to add.
in the movie doomsday, supes and dooms do have a fight, both in wich it LUKS lyk they die. but anutha supes come. this turns ou to b a clone from the original tht lex makes blah blah. and the original is healing off into fortress of solitude i fink its calld. and then things go on and in the end good conquesrs evil. yh i must sound lyk a ryt geek but i was really bored and it was rainin outsyd.
As a person who actually read the comic book about the death and return of Superman the Superman Doomsday movie did an awful job of that storyline. Not even close to the source material other then Superman fighting Doomsday. Back on topic that render of Joker is pretty good, I'm trying to find some kind of hope for this title but I'm still turned off by the concept and the gameplay I've seen so far hasn't really impressed me. This game could be all kinds of fun I would like to try it out whenever there is a demo.
he looks good, but joker isnt much of a fighter. and darkseid would be way cooler than doomsday. I wonder if this is a test run to see if dc could do a fighting game of its own. Thats what i hope comes out of it. A pure dc fighter. Thats what i hope happens to star wars in soul calibur. someone makes a full star wars fighter.
After The Dark Knight all other Jokers look retarded including this one. I doubt there will ever be a better Joker then The Dark Knight version.
Of course no Joker can come even close to Ledger's but this is not about the realism. This is a fun little game not something canon in either Batman universe or something. Plus, he looks ages better than horribly crappy joker of DC Universe Online.
the render luks pretty sweet. . . . but its only raised my opinion of the game ABIT higher. fink the guys tht make mortal kombat are using this as a last "cry out for help" the games goin down and is goin to die i fink. only my opinion...
I want Deadpool!
...Deadpool is Marvel.
Thank God doesnt look like the DC Universe online, that joker looks more like Sweet Tooth in TM4, this one looks amazig
Agreed but even Sweetooth looked better in TM4!! The Joker in DCU Online was a caricature and a harmless one.
