XBOX 360:Gears of War and Call of Duty character in Mortal Kombat?

Why in the fuck would you put a character from CoD in MK? Hell the same thing for gears.

Nitrowolf2  +   1883d ago
Gears would make more sense then COD,
i mean WTF really? Cod?????

Why not someone from Ninja Gaiden?

Ryu and Kasumi are in Dead or Alive. I don't see him in MK if he is going to be in Dead or Alive 5 and Mulitplat NG3. I hope they go with exclusive characters....

But this is kind of lame, I mean COD is such a joke. MS couldn't come up with something better than a multiplat character?

Well maybe the Xbox having more than one character will give PS3 the chance to do the same. I would love to Radec fighting Subzero in a Helghan Arena with Vasari in the background and troops all around, kind of like the outdoor arena in the original MK.

If I was going to pick a character for the 360 version I would pick either Arbiter from Halo or being able to use you're own cartoony avatar. Maybe the Avatar Arena could be on the dashboard or something silly like that.

Someone from Gears would be just stupid. They're nothing but big blocks, what are they gonna do...shoot scorpion or maybe stick him with a grenade?

deadreckoning666  +   1883d ago
LOL...a certain group is feeling threatened now. LMAO! The comments say it all. Btw...Marcus Fenix makes sense. But a character from COD...that doesn't fit IMO.

"shoot scorpion or maybe stick him with a grenade?"

Ummm yeah. In the old MK games, Stryker could use his gun with a cheat code and Cyrex could use a flaming fireball that comes out of his chest. Also, from what I remember, there were several MK characters that could use grenades in battle.

@captain-obvious- Kratos is DEFINETLY a better fit than any Gears or COD character, however..don't u see whats going on here? Look at all the negative comments. Why are people so strongfully adverse to having more OPTIONAL characters in MK??

This thread as a perfect example of N4G damage control. Whether or not Marcus Fenix is in the game or not, you DON'T have to play with why is there such bitterness in here?

LOL, while MK fans are excited for more OPTIONAL characters...the pathetic fanboys are whining that the 360 may get its own exclusive character. Gimme a break. Goddamn Sony fanboys with their elitist B.S. You guys have Kratos in the game...what are you bitching about?

i don't think any of those fit in MK

but COME THE FU*K on
the PS3 had kratos because the developers think it would make a perfect fit

which it DOSE
now should the 360 get the same treatment ??
well if it dose have a fitting character ... why not
but so far there is not even a single character on the xbox in this gen that fits the game

but if there is
well why not

but the only thing that started this
was cliffy B and his (( me too )) words as if he was a kid
and then followed by xbox fanboys screaming about it

and one more thing
this is not the first time kratos makes an appearance in a fighting game
there was this blaze blue game that got the same thing
i think the PSP version or something i don't remember
but yah
no one bitched about it back then

sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesss sshhhhhhhhhh

you fanboys should just chill

its all up the the developers of the game

@ dead reckoning

BECAUSE THEY DON'T FIT. Mortal combat is a hand to hand fighting game. Kratos is a hand to hand fighter. Master chief, marcus fenix, COD characters ARE NOT. do you see the point here?

And fatalities are a big part of Mortal Kombat. Kratos always did violent, gory killings in his games. MARCUS FENIX, COD, And MASTER CHIEF. Did not!

This isn't that i am at all oposed to more optional characters. It doesn't affect me at all, especially since i don't want to buy the game. But to just throw in random cameos that don't fit in the game universe would be foolish. Like putting a character with a gun in GOW.
BattleAxe  +   1882d ago
CoD character is the dumbest thing I've ever heard, Gears character is pointless. The only exclusive character that makes any sense for the 360 version is .....Master Chief.
ExplosionSauce  +   1882d ago
I really don't see how.
Kratos already proved to work great in fighting games, mainly because he's a physical combat type character in the first place.

But shooter characters from games like Gears or COD??

Don't wanna say this but, do I sense desperation from Midway? Some things just don't make sense.

Only James Earl Cash from Manhunt and Sweet Tooth can pull off stuff in MK and maby dante from DMC, i cant think of brutal characters, Maby CONKER on the 360 version .... Ohh yeah Ninja Gaidan Great Idea

People on here don't seem to know much about the Mortal Kombat franchise. Gears characters fit, COD could fit etc... So far since this franchise has been about we have had:

4 armed men
Horse men
Stryker with his grenades and hand gun
Magical Tomahawk weilding Knightwolf.
A man who is the god lightning giving it the Barry.
Fit chicks - fuck ugly cloan chicks

Unfortunatly some people struggle to grasp a world outside the Sony franchise... Then make an N4G account.

a push a gears character(or the bulletstorm guy) could possibly end up in the a push..

i think the picture was titled that because it contained mortal kombat dev, cliff and a (previously)cod devs.. thats why..

colonel179  +   1882d ago
If there is a Gears character, or some MS character on the 360 version of MK that just means that MS at the moment they saw Kratos unveiled for the PS3, they went to Ed Boon's office with a Blank check and told him: "Don't care the amount, just overshadow Sony, put a MS character there, let's make it two, I'll let you write three more zeros in the check"

I talked to Cliff yesterday - he wants it to happen, but there is nothing happening yet.
Skizelli  +   1882d ago
I think people are taking this too seriously. It looks to me that CliffyB merely posted a pic of them from what looks like E3, and making a joke about it. And Ed is clearly being sarcastic. It's already known that CliffyB wants a Gears character in MK, but I doubt it will happen.

Regardless, none of these crossover characters will play a part in the story from what I'm hearing. They'll most likely be DLC that won't even be on the official character select screen.

Tommy Vercetti, Sweet Tooth, O.G. Loc, a HelGhast, a Fallout B52 armour Suit soldier, a Jauggernaut from COD MW2

xtremeimport  +   1882d ago
if there wasnt enough proof before that the only thing xbox has is shooters(which, isnt bad if you're an shooter fan) this just nails it.

this is Mortal Kombat...what do these characters add in terms of increasing the fun? like...."im just gonna shoot you, knife you, noob tube you or chainsaw you bitch"

I don't think Xbox has a perfect fit like Kratos.

neither characters fit into MK... it would just look plain stupid, its like adding Drake or Snake or Hale or even Sackboy in the ps3 version... at least Kratos fits into it all.

really!??!?!? Cod characters?!?!?! gears make sense, but Cod? nah
if it's that way, sony should add cole from infamous, THAT would be awesome. Microsoft should take someone from the fable universe instead. For PS3, Raiden would make sense too, but again, multiplat character. It's like saying that sackboy would be a great character..... HAHA
If microsoft really need a character unique and badass for MK, they should've asked gearbox to have Duke nukem exclusive for the 360 version of MK. THAT would have been awesome, Kratos on one side and Duke on the other!

Obviously it's a joke. For one, those so-called COD guys don't even work for Activision anymore, and you can tell from the tone of the tweet they are obviously having a laugh. Way to take it out of context.

i am taken back by this. Cliff plays follow the leader and Call of Duty gets to stink up Mortal Kombat.

i would rather them put Bobby Kotick in the game. his fatality would be drowning you in money. or would he charge for doing a fatality?

or would his moves and fatalities be DLC?

would him even moving be DLC?

kratos fits into Mk simply because he kills everything he comes across, but call of duty and gears of war are shooters, gears has a tiny bit more sense because of the chainsaw and such but at the end of the day it makes no sense to put any type of warfare soldier in MK

If true, this is embarrasing!
