@gamemk, it may not be intentional but you are bashing the game. Everything original in MK9 is original because of Mortal Kombat itself.

Idk how much relation PAX has with E3, but most of the vids I've seen have been from there with PAX in the title. I'll admit, MK is one of the very few fighting games to stray that much from its first few classics, and it's baffling. Based on the 36 videos I've seen, and the information from people who had a chance to test the game, this a hyper MK game that's much more similar to MK2 than any of the previous games in the serious: only it's much faster, the juggling is (unfortunately) enhanced, there's an X-ray meter to consider, and the renders are off da chain. That's just focusing on the bigger picture, however. I have my small issues just as you do (aside from how you feel about the company itself) but I'm I've been able to look past most of them. I'm glad that unlike foozer (who's all of sudden a fan of yours) you're willing to give this game a chance, and you realize that a lot of our issues could very well benfit the game or dissapear completely.

I'm a fan of anyone willing to take that much time to express a point of view that I happen to share  Smiley and I never said I wasn't going to give MK9 a chance. I'll probably buy it like the rest of you and give it an honest chance... just like I gave MK vs DC an honest chance. As far as the comment you made about our issues with the game being fixed before the actual release implies that WB is actually listening to the fan's criticism. Midway stopped listening to their fans a loooong time ago with MK4, do you think a gigantic company like WB will do a better job of listening to their fans? I doubt it.

Very interesting breakdown GameMK. Welcome to Rawmk2.com  Grin

It seems this game will be a battle decided by which player meters up first to have breakers and x-rays. Some of those x-rays look like they simply end the match too

I am definately not a fan of breakers, hits that bounce an opponent off the ground(  Huh? ), or moves like the x-rays.

I don't think this will entirely ruin the game as I heard that two players in the same room(actual room not lobby) can be a tag team online!<--- This has great potential for me.

Visually, I'm up in the air about MK9. When I first saw MK vs DC I was like cool-this shit looks fresh-A day later I was 

I am also a front runner for the SF2 comparison- it really does ring truthful.

I still can't wait to play the game and I hope that whoever gets this game hits me up when they see me on-I have it reserved and will play it the weekend of the 23rd!

@Fooz, you definitely implied that you wouldn't give it a chance, but I likely misinterpreted. When you mention WB you seem to be thinking about the big execs that run it: of course they won't be listening to anyone, because they don't care. I'm talking about the people actually doing the work. The game testers, the people who listen to their surveys, the people who actually play the game, the guys who are secretly made to check sites like these or youtube comments. I'm talking about those guys.

All I know is that midway/wb need to take lessons from capcom in fan service.  And John Tobias is sadly missed  Cry We should get yourmameman to contact Richard Divizio about doing an interview with the fans here  Lips Sealed

i just feel like i'm probably going to end up paying $63 for mkvsdc II.  and yes, foozer, tobias was an integral part of this game, but i feel like he got burned out after umk3.  the mk4 designs are terrible.  shinnok looks like a villian from a disney cartoon;  fujin was horrible...kai looks like something from eternal champions.  just bad.  and if you look at tao feng, it just got worse.  maybe he just hit a wall, cause i've seen old kung fu movies with better designs than his later work.  

anyway, i redid the johnny cage orb throw cuz it has bugged me since i first saw it.  i based the animation on the mk2 cage, and it really does make a difference.  it boggles my mind why they didn't just save themselves time by rotoscoping the old games and tweaking them.  the animations for mk9 are atrocious and lazy imo.  i did a quick animation tween in imageready and it really does look better with just changing 3 frames!  and i made the orb more orblike since i hate the way that they treat projectiles in mk9.  in the original, he is not moving his body properly, and in the last frame, his body just looks awkward.  why don't they see the difference?  the 3d model cage's leg rises too high.  in the original mk2, his leg only goes so high because of human anatomy.  the 3d model is just wrong.  and imo, the mk2 sound fx are the best ever.  so i wish they had brought them back.

i arched his back more like it is in mk2.  it looks like he is building more force.  like he's pulling something upward.

obviously, this one isn't perfect since i just substituted mk2 cage's upper torso to get the look, but it's still better.  and the orbs are back.

MK vs DC my ass. I don't give a fuck, this looks off the chain. It's not MK 2, it's never will be and there will never be another one. Accept it and enjoy the new game.

It is a very pretty game...no doubt!  Its not the 59.99 + 10% tax that would bother me, its the time it takes to see how long this game gets exploited.  I gave the demo a try and I felt some button mashing being very effective, and thats not a good early sign for me.  IMO, the less combos the better.   ;)The mk vs dc lasted a week for me, if I do decide to get this one it would strictly be for the excitement of all the characters in this game.  Portal 2 might be a better alternative for me this time around.  I guess ill monitor how long and how frequent you guys are playing it.

mk9 is'nt bad at all guys to me i think it's the best mk game of all the past mk's. well just my opinion but if some of you don't like it then thats fine but i'm loving it so far. shao khan is kinda cheap i agree with that but atleast he's beatable is all that matters. too bad his hammer throw is unblockable only jumping will avoid it imagine ppl abusing his hammer throw online will be a pain in the ass.
