Mortal Kombat is a game that many of us gamers grew up playing and loved. One of the signature trademarks of the game was the ability to perform fatalities for further annihilation of your opponent.
Well I love me some fatalities, so this is nice to know that no character will get left out from the havoc they can cause on others. Lets hope they are a bit easier to pull of then the fatalities in previous games.
I remember the the old mk's, they had 2-4 fatalities. I remember one having: Animality, Brutality, Friendship, Babality & fatality lol
That would be Ultimate MK3. The best one IMO.
MK2 had way better gameplay
Mortal Kombat Trilogy...... : )
Sweet i wonder if hara-kiris will make a return.
Wtf why am i getting disagrees? O right my disagrees came from people who couldn't perform a hara kiri and got a fatality done on them lol.
Because its pretty stupid to have a hara-Kiri and 1 fatality. Unless they wouldnt mind adding the Hara-Kiri as an extra but even so...Friendship, animality, and even babality are better choices. No one wants to kick major ass only to brutaly kill themselves in the end.
lol hell yes man. I think Deception was the best when they rebooted Mortal Kombat the first time time.
I've never been able to pull off one -- So this news ill affects me. I think I did, actually. I did Kung Lao's. The hat one. The one where he saws you in half with the hat. I think it was --> --> --> High Punch or something. It was easy. The rest, yeah, forget it. That is why I never got into MK series much. It wasn't because I didn't like it or the legacy of characters it housed, it was just that I sucked at it too much to participate in it the way I wanted to.
Sweet! I don't consider any mortal kombat title completed until i have performed every fatality at least twice. That said, I think it is cruel that they don't ship the games with fatality instructions in the manuals
mk vs dc had it in the in game menu, along with special moves. <, <, ¥, >, high kick......lol
thats bull shit that you have to pre-order the game at some store to receive a fatality.
Cool, you should give each player 10+ fatalities...
I want Noob Saibot back :(
hey who knows! he might be back...it would make sense considering theyre going with noobs younger brother as Sub-Zero. Noob would fit in the storyline perfectly.
But it would just have to be Noob, since Tobias is no longer on the team. I HOPE he is in the game, at least in some form.
Noob Saibot has already been confirmed via the character sound leak. And Tobias does not own the Saibot part of Noob's name, he has been called Noob Saibot several times in character bios even after Tobias' departure. Anyway it's been said that John will be working on MK9 in some capacity so either way, Noob Saibot is back
No Noob Saibot, No Buy.
Lol coming from YOU sir, id say that is to be expected, what with the saibot avatar.
You mean like this.
Sorry for my ignorance, but in the older MK titles each fighter didn't have more than just 2 fatalities?
I sort of agree with Esena. I mean 2 fatalities will get old fast. @ xtruthx they should add friendship babailty animality but what was brutality?
The brutality was the one where you pounded the crap out of the other character until they explode!!
When are they going to confirm a new, better fighting game engine?
Did you play MK vs DC, say what you want about that game but it had a good fighting engine and very good fighting mechanics. Loved it, even thought the fatalities sucked.
Pardon me for being spoiled... too much Street Fighter/SNK/Guilty Gear/etc... y'understand, don't you? And MK vs DC was more about the gimmick team up between Mortal Kombat and... well, er... DC than any kind of fighting.
Anyway, i think it would be really cool to somehow add a babality as a taunt of some kind. even though you can always tbag by holding block, the biggest diss in MK3 style MKs is babying someone. i dont play MK2 on psn much, but with umk3 on xbl, to baby someone is to really saaay somethin. it would make the perfect taunt as a big fat "fuck you" to the guy whos ass you just kicked. but all together i dont really think there should be any sort of "alities" other than the grand ol fatality! like i said i still kind of wish there was a way they could work babying into the formula without taking it on as an entire finisher.
They have to put Animalities back in there again, maybe as DLC. But two really is low nowadays, at least 3 per character. Or make 'em slow, not fast if there are to be only two.
I hope this new MK makes up for all the garbage that has game between MK2/ UMK3. The others have been really bleh. I'm loving that it is on a 2d plane.
the only MK game between mk2/umk3 was mk3. the shitty ones were during the ps2 days. deception, deadly alliance, and annihilation or whatever it was.
Sorry I think I said that wrong. I meant the ones that came after UMK3 until now.
Will the online for this game be any good? I haven't played any fighter for this gen because...well, nobody play fighting games anymore and having to commit all those combos to memory is a pain.
Thinking is hard.
@ProblemChild84 What game was brutality introduced in?
BRING BACK FRIENDSHIPS. C'MON THEY'RE KOOL
