TheSixthAxis: Ed Boon, the co-creator of Mortal Kombat, released some new details today regarding MK9 DLC. It sounds like a few problems that we mentioned are going to be addressed very soon, along with Skarlet as a playable character.
Great news! Many characters needs to get balanced.
Off topic: Has anyone ACTUALLY signed on to PSN yet? PS site is down so I can't even change my password.
Nha, not for me atleast. I heard that you can't change your password until you login so don't worry bout that. I got my ps3 on hoping something will happen soon.
Kratos needs to get balanced. Cheap as hell guaranteed 30% damage moves. No X-ray needed. Jonny Cage is too quick. Infinite guard strings.
I SWEAR I AM TIRED OF YOUR PSN CRAP!.... be patient and i'm sure by the end of the day you'll be online.
Sorry to say, but you just can't know that type of thing yet. Anybody who you think needs to get balanced is likely a character that many people have learned well, thus there are probably more unbalanced characters that people have not learned well, you just haven't played against them.
Shao kahn is more unbalanced than an old lady's breast.
Free DLC? That sounds more like it. :3
Is this ":3" a bum, boobs or walrus? :D
Hoping for dlc with a walrus whose head I can chop off, so let's go with that =D
Hehe :D Bubbles!
Haha, bubbles for you guys, that was funny. Why anyone would disagree with your comments is beyond me, but whatever.
it's a walrus. a bum would just be "3" and boobs are "OO"
@Kee not unless you view them from above ever wonder why Boob is the perfect word? Google it lol They should have a walrus as an annimality
Boobs are (.)(.) Bum is (_|_)
Haha, bubbles for you guys. Why anyone would disagree with your comments is beyond me, but whatever.
It's N4G, that's why. I've lost two bubbles for using "bad" language. It's okay to link to websites with tons of "crude" language in them, without N4G actually warning anyone about it, and it's okay to link to NSFW content (even featuring it directly on this website), but damn you to hell if you use mature language in the comments box.
Yea I got pulled for bad language once, I just laughed at it. Never lost a bubble though which is odd, I use it pretty often.
“free stuff” =D that is always great. Wondering when Kenshi will arrive though
I'd like to see them patch that ridiculous trophy that requires 24 hours to be spent playing as each character. I don't mind a platinum trophy that requires effort, but asking players to spend 672 hours playing is just stupid. Free stuff is cool though. Hopefully they are talking about the classic costumes.
That trophy is just ridiculous lol. I thought beating the tower would be a hassle. XO
but its 24 hours for each character.
i have around 5 or 6 characters already mastered when it comes to the time devotion... just play a two versus two match against yourself and as player 1 pick the 2 characters you wish to add time to and let it sit... oh and take off the timer :)
@Toasty I don't really mind a challenge. I've got the platinum in plenty of 100 hour games like GTA4 and Fallout 3, and I've earned plenty of challenging ones, like MotorStorm: Pacific Rift or Mirror's Edge platinums. 672 hours is way beyond anything I could ever do. That's two hours each day for a year. I'm not even sure I play much more than that in an entire year across all games. And as much as I love MK, I don't want to play it that much. I don't want to play any game that much. @cr33ping_death I've heard about that method, but I've gone through two PS3s (although both with 60GB models), and I don't want to leave my PS3 on that long just for a trophy.
Totally agree MrBeatdown, it's way too extreme. Currently I have just mastered Jade.. 12 hours for each character would be ensane already^^ I don't ususally collect trophies, or care much for them, but like you sayed, it's ridiculous.. About DLC, I simply can't wait new kharacters, kenshi was one of my favourites from DA. Also I would love to see Li Mei from it too: http://www.timeless-gaming.... Other DLC I would like to see is klassic costumes for characters, specially Reptile one, since I love the character, but I dislike the "modern" style of it. New story campaign would be great too, or even just more tower challenges with little price for completing them, new costumes, fatalities, stages,... I hope NR will keep giving us DLC in the future too^^
The most fun I've had in years with a fighting game! :) They did it well. Cannot wait for DLC. I was completely invested in the story mode. I liked the fact that it made me play with characters I wouldn't usually use, and got strong with. Big fan of Kabal and smoke, and man do I hate Ermac and Quan chi lol
Agreed I got got mvc3 2 weeks before I got this and I play this more then that, actually I didn't even played mvc3 a lot before I got this mk9 is better then it.
I agree bud, I also have MVsC3 and I only took it out 'cause my friends are more into street fighter type of fighting than anything else. But in terms of balance and sheer satisfaction, I love MK9. You can tell this was a labor of love, as opposed to getting it out bc it is expected.
Hopefully they will fix the online lag! Otherwise this game is STELLAR!
There is a patch coming already for that^^
hopefully they fix Shoa Khan and his cheap ass tactics. once he gets you into the corner you're done. Also, they need to lower the damage to his X-ray move. 54% in 3 hits is ridiculous.
i really hope they add custom soundtrack on the ps3 version
Funny thing is, it was in the demo so why take it out? smh
i now man :(
I totally agree. I was let down when I tried to hear my music and was denied XO. How can a demo support it, yet not the full game.
Maybe Tanya will be a DLC character too, since you can see her in the background chained up in Shao Kahn's stage. You can see Skarlet chained up as well, but Skarlet's already on the disc in playable form, but she's obviously unfinished. Her X-Ray is very basic and cuts off seemingly mid-way through the animation, she doesn't have a full moveset and other things are unfinished. No one can complain about her being "on-disc dlc". Frost, Kenshi, and another guy also appear in the background of some stages, and Ed Boon already said people were interested in Kenshi, so he seems like a safe bet.
They gotta add the custom soundtrack option !!! Me and my brother raped the demo, playing with our custom soundtracks, damn it was awesome. Be well PUMPED if they add it back !!
They seriously need to balance Sindels scream? Its just too weak.I wish they could change her second fatality into something different instead of the same head blow up move. Shao Kahn is the cheapest character!!!! You have to spam the same attacks at him in order to kill him. Did I mention that I will never pick Raiden again after facing Shao Kahn like the 100th time?
Yeah, Shao Kahn is pretty insane :D Had to lower the difficulty in Story both times I battled him. With Raiden I found best tactic to be teleport, uppercut, repeat.. Not very fair, but so isn't Shao Kahn..^^
How can lower the difficulty in story mode? whenever i pick story mode it just starts nothing else.
In the gameplay option in main menu, there is "story mode difficulty" option.
Hmmm haven't played this as much online, due to needing to renew my gold and due to the challenge tower. Anyways This game is pretty good. Other than Shao Khan, i'm pretty sure Ermac is the most pain in the ass character. missile, teleport flamethrower, uppercut, repeat.
