Hardcore MK fan gives his thoughts on why the timing isn't right for Freddy Krueger to be added to Mortal Kombat as DLC. At least not until the dozens of other, better Mortal Kombat characters could, and should have come first. -GameRevoution
I really was not expecting that
So disappointing. So many better MK characters. It's not even the good Freddy.
I know man. It's a MK game. MK characters should come 1st. No doubt that Jason will be coming soon too.
It's by far one of the lamest choices they could make. I'm sorry Freddy fans, but Freddy sucks, and always has. He's corny as hell, never scary, and he's NOT A FIGHTER. All he does is jump from the shadows and stab people - sorry, any MK combatant could counter that bullshit and throw him in the fire pit. There's so many better choices, I simply can't imagine what made them think this was a good idea.
@BigWoopMagazine: Isn't that kinda the point of Freddy though? He isn't supposed to be scary like Michael Myers or even Jason. He's meant to be a bit goofy or cheesy. He cracks jokes while gutting children. He makes bizarre, sometimes-silly nightmare worlds to freak out his victims before killing them. With that being said, I agree that Netherrealms should have released more MK characters before releasing 'crack' characters.
The gameplay was embarrassing I don't know what they were thinking. Freddy isn't even a fighter. I would have rather had Tanya than him.
Armageddon was fucked up with KAKs, MK vs DC self explanatory, MK9 is gimmicky characters (Kratos, Freddy, whoever is next) What are they thinking!?!
Fighting games always walk a thin line between keeping the series true to its roots and not becoming stale. If you release the same characters with the same play style over and over again, then i'm going to lose interest. As long as Kruger isn't some throwaway character and the devs have spent the time to balance the character, I'm fine with adding him in, but then again, im not a huge MK fan, so I don't have any attachment to the characters.
Im not even that big a fan of the MK games but it seems like a pretty bad idea to me, Maybe its to "appeal to a wider audience" again... Damn I hate that wider audience always ruining our games.
its free an people still are not satisfied!If you dont like it,simply dont play with it dont download it,but bashing something that is for free is just idiotic.
... It's not free...
Than if its not free just dont buy it!No one is forcing anyone to buy kruger!
But I'd rather they released something better for me to buy!!!
Why you think its free???
He must of brought the Season Pass.
Freddie and someone else wouldve been a perfect Halloween addition add on.
If they want my money. They should make a spongebob squarepants dlc.....that would kick arsenal.
They cannot keep adding M.K characters 'cause they need some of them for a sequel, plus, IMHO, all the best MK are already out, the rest of them are boring, uninspiring and uninteresting to say the least. Also, it is additional, you can choose not to buy it and forget its there if you don't like it, but, why being selfish and deny the fun to all Freddy fans? M.K (the goriest game in the market) is the perfect setting for a Slasher villain.
Really? They are like a zillion other MK characters that should have come out before Freddy.
Too bad most the remaining characters suck arse
they already added 3 from MK. I welcome freddy.
I just think it was too early to announce Freddy, I mean we're in July NRS! jeez~ They should have announced him in September and release him near Halloween. And instead announce another MK character now (instead of Freddy) But I guess its too late now, lets just hope they release a FREE classic Freddy costume. That will at least relieve some tension since the new Freddy looks retarded
Sure is a lot of whiny kids in here.
For the ps3 version they should add general Raedec or, another Helghast variant, or maybe Cole........ But Freddy, doe?...... They do realize that he's a child molester that gotten angry at the very kids he touched, because he told them not to tell on him, so he decided that the best way to get revenge on the ones he touched, is to show up in their dreams with a burnt up body with a grey and red skin tight mister rogers sweater right?....... Shit, the sweater alone would of scared me awoke lmao
That was the remake. In the original he was a serial killer/child murderer and is killing the kids (now teenagers) as revenge against the parents for killing him.
This would make more sense close to Halloween!
stop whining people. the developers are just having fun while working, bringing something new to the table. i find it interesting, they should do more things like this as long as they make sense.
It still just seems wrong to me.
I agree with the author here. MK9 is supposed to be a throwback game...
you do realize they most likely had no say over this? WB runs, and they want money
