I wish NetherRealm the best for its future endeavors.

R.I.P. Midway

Sad to see Midway gone but they have no one to blame but them self's.

The reason why this MK was a hit was because the went back to the simple old school formula and added a bit of new stuff.

Previous MK were horrible and felt like the were adding things on just for the sake of it.

MK should have never went 3D. It was always better at 2D and I hope they keep it that way.

I like happy news stories :D

It was a solid game, glad they are still supporting it with DLC characters and updates.

While I agree that I like them supporting us with updates, that dlc was probably created sometime in the development process and left out to be sold as dlc. I would've much preferred it to be on the disc. I don't think it would've taken much space up for them to do it. I'm just tired of these companies releasing a game and then a week/month or two later there tons of dlc characters and stuff that you clearly know were done before the game was shipped.

These companies' greed is being fed by us, who keep on paying for stuff that should've been part of that initial $60 purchase.

Having said that, I thought this new Mortal Kombat was an excellent game. The graphics were great and so was the gameplay, which was more akin to the old school MK games.

The amount characters in the game was my only complaint. They could have added at least 40 playable characters instead of 28.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 has 38 playable characters.

Yea that was my only complaint too. I just love seing a screen full of fighters maybe the next mk will go all out since now they know the mk fans are here. They probably was skeptical on the sales.

Great new!

Unfortunately though

*SPOILER*

with how the story mode ended, most of their fighters died anyway! lol
