I just read this interview and thought it was interesting. I still think it sounds like a bad idea for a game, but it addressed some concerns. First off there will be fatalaties for all MK players as well as DC villains and some heroes that kill. The non-killing heroes will have brutalities where they fuck people up without killing them. I like the idea of having villains in the game and hope for Darkseid as the main one. We all know what his fatality would be. Flash is in the game and looks pretty good. Anyways here's the link.

Ah, well, brutalities from my DC Superheroes--that I can handle. Batman can repeatedly kick Scorpion in the face or Superman can kidney punch away, but at least they're not killing anyone!

What a relief! :smt021

Boon said the content is really pushing the T-Rating. I never thought I'd see the day when Mortal Kombat was rated Teen.

I don't know if you ever played teh MK games, but they had these before and it was usually stuff like strong uppercuts or whatever, My guess would be that for Batman it would be a nice martial arts combo or tying a guy up and hanging them from the ceiling upside down and for Flash it would be running in circles making the guy lose oxygen and knocking them out or a flurry of punches that does the same and for Superman it would be using his freeze breath to cover all except the head or whatever. I still think this is the strangest idea for a game and I don't really have a strong interest in playing it, but I think that was good news.

Well ripping out a guy's heart is a little tame compared to some of the stuff you can do in a God of War or Ninja Gaiden game.

Eh, you might be right. If I remember correctly the fatalities were turning a little cartoonish in the last MK game I played. Still, I'd expect a fatality that featured Sub-Zero flaunting a severed head with spine attached to earn the game a Mature rating.

This game is going to be so ridiculous it has the potential to be utterly awesome.

It will be god awful. Come one, we know how well comics fare in the videogame realm in the first place. Secondly, it's a poor man's Marvel vs. Capcom. Third, when was the last good Mk game? 3?

If Deathstroke, Lady Shiva, Ravager, Kalibek (if Darkseid is in this game I want him in this dude damnit and that huge freakin mace of his), or Batgirl aren't in this game I am so gonna rage. These characters are made to be in this game it's a no brainer. :smt011

i don't think Ravager and Shiva are well known enough to make the cut. I think the other three have a good shot though.

That would make this the single greatest game ever and would be a move I would try to do. It would pass King's awesome one combo super piledriver from Tekken 2 as the best move ever.

MK Deception was a solid fighting game by any standard. It also has the best fatalities of ANY MK game.
