One of the better (non HD) trailers for the game
News and interviews

This could be good or bad. They look like they are trying a few new things with this. As far as I can tell with the trailers, models and textures look better, while the animation still looks stiff. "Freefall" might be a valid mechanic for air combos and flying characters. It looked like it might have drawn some things from UFC games since it looks like it could be a modified ground pound mechanic. Not sure about "Klose Kombat" due to the various super powers for both sides that would seem to work best for a distance or might be extremely broken upclose (Flash's speed). It's interesting that they acknowledge that the idea is unpopular. Hopefully, that combined with the lack of gore will force them to make the actual engine better. It's annoying that they might make the game canon (scowls at imcomplete Armaggedon storyline).

No gore? There is no MK universe without gore.

Seeing as having Magneto and The Hulk take on Chun-li and Ryu didn't require the basic elements of Street Fighter to have to be thrown out, I'd say it is more absurd.

I am not too sure if that would REALLY benefit DC or MK to have the storyline linked. Unless it gives reason for a kouple of the big named DC kharacters a reason to come back in MK9 and so on.

On the bright side, we may finally get a good MK komik. There was supposed to be one(IDK if it was going to be good or not) that was supposed to kome out a kouple of years ago, what happened to it? Or better yet some DC Direkt/DCU styled figures.

It will be interesting to see how the Unreal Engine will really influence the gameplay. So far is doesn't seem too different from the past few games. With the lack of Fatalities, I hope we get a twist on the more traditional Super move system that kompensates for this. Or maybe "Friendships" kan kome back.

The Capcom fighters were absurd, it's a given. But they were also ironic and cartoonish, they din't take them too seriously (see the ending of Ryu and Morrigan in MVC for example).
MK vs DC is a bit different: it's about realistic textures, realistic phisical engine and characters that are somehow "serious" or tend to be dark and aggressive.
Man, this is awful!

But in the end I'm intrigued how the unreal engine works on a fighter XD

MKvs.DC is having the same problem than SFIV so far: the negativity of the traditional players (although so far it doesn't seem to be as strong as SFIV's, where people who didn't even test the game yet are already bashing it, most of the time irrationally, and desiring to kill Ono...).

In the case of MKvs.DC (that I'm fine with, as long as it is considered just a spin-off, NOT MK8), it's quite ironic actually to see how many people complain that this game will be stupid and that it will kill the franchise... come on, they bought MK ARMAGEDDON, which had a bad playability, lots of bugs, a rushed and full of holes story, and that generic and trashy Kreate-a-Fatality... obviously most of these people WILL BUY this game.

Sure, the idea is completely bizarre. But the teaser trailer is actually quite good. With some hard work in it, this game can be good, as a matter of fact. Again, it's just like SFIV: we can't say these games will be bad until we play them ourselves.

BTW, where is this information that MKvs.DC won't have blood and fatalities from? I didn't find this information in the MK Online news... (not that I care about fatalities; never use them, actually).

It's briefly mentioned in one of the video interviews that while there might be finishers, there won't be actual fatalities. Likewise, there will be MUCH less blood but the trailer shows that some blood will still be there.

And likewise, I'm not much of a big fatality fan either.

Honestly, as much as I don't like the idea of not having the one thing that made MK MK, Batman doesn't kill, so they'd have to do something that would end up being stupid to fill it in. That and DC may have told them "Yeah, uh, don't kill our guys, plz."

So only about 20 characters will be in this game, which isn't that bad since they are messing around with a new engine.

So for iconic characters we will probably get most of the MK1 cast. Maybe they will take out Kano and put in Kung Lao or Shao Kahn.

Is Liu Kang still a zombie?

I don't know, since they never cleared up the true ending to Armaggedon. As far as the cast is concerned, I think it is safe to guess that Kitana and/or Mileena will make it in (concerning MK2). Jax might have a chance and as you said, Shao Khan. Kung Lao would be cool but I have a feeling he may get the shaft (like usual...)

After Armageddon, he's probably either fully back to life (as a normal human being), or died completely. Yet, I wouldn't be surprised if MKvsDCU would just disconsider the events of Armageddon, happening on an alternate timeline or some time before Armageddon.

Yeah, Mileena and Kitana have good chances of being in it. Let's see who would be the most likely characters:

- Sub-Zero (already confirmed)
- Scorpion (already confirmed)
- Raiden (very popular character)
- Johnny Cage (very popular character)
- Sonya Blade (quite popular character)
- Kano (MK's original badass villain)
- Shao Kahn (MK main villain)
- Goro (MK iconic character)
- Kitana (very popular character)
- Mileena (Mileena's reinclusion in Deception showed that one can't have Kitana without Mileena)

Since Boon said there will be AROUND 10 characters on each side, not EXACTLY 10 characters, there are also good chances for:

- Liu Kang (MK main hero)
- Kung Lao (MK better hero)
- Shang Tsung (MK first main villain)

Now, on DC side, I'm not sure about which characters will make it besides Batman and Superman. Well, Joker and Lobo fit quite well with the MK characters. As for Wonder Woman, if she's in, let's hope one of her special attacks consists on breaking her opponent's neck...

It's be nice if DC's side was:
-The Goddamn Batman (regular Batman's fine, but the goddamn Batman would *really* enjoy Mortal Kombat)
-Any of Batman's supporting cast or villians except: Riddler, Vantriloquist, Barbara and Commissioner Gordon, Alfred. (All of Batman's other villians are psychos who are both capable of and would LOVE to rip people apart with their bare hands. All his other sidekicks are accomplished martial artist well suited to this sorta deal)
-a possessed Superman (as in Hush or the episode of 'the Batman' that stole heavily from Hush, I can't see Superman under his own free will taking part in MK, but under someone else's control he'd make TOTAL sense in the game)
-Wonder Woman (like regular Batman, Wonder Woman would fit into a game about kicking ass just fine, but use Frank Miller's man-hating bitch Wonder Woman and you've got something special)
-Lobo (obvious)

No the Flash, no Green Lantern, no Martian Manhunter, ESPECIALLY no Aquaman. The game does not NEED the enter JLU, just the trinity and some bloodlusting crazies.

so pretty much I'm biased and just want "Frank Miller's Crazy Ass versions of Batman's cast Vs MK + LOBO!!!" but that's really the only way this could work when you think about it.

The explanation for a weaker Superman doesn't quite work. Magic doesn't make him weaker. He just doesn't have superhuman resistance to it.

Not that it matters. Heck, it doesn't even matter in the comics, which are quite variable in Supe's strength and abilities and who or what can give him a fight.

Good choices. I've been thinking about who will appear in this game as well. Considering Boon said only the most iconic characters from both sides will appear, I guess some of the names below will be in it:

MK:

1) Sub-Zero (confirmed)
2) Scorpion (confirmed)
3) Baraka
4) Liu Kang
5) Raiden
6) Sonya
7) Johnny Cage
8) Kitana
9) Mileena
10) Goro
11) Shang Tsung

DC:

1) Batman (confirmed)
2) Superman (confirmed)
3) Wonder Woman
4) Lobo
5) Jonah Hex
6) Joker
7) Catwoman
8) Green Arrow
9) Black Canary
10) Flash
11) Bane

I know, Lobo and Jonah Hex aren't really iconic DC characters. But since the game plot will be made by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Grey (really BAD idea, by the way...), I guess Hex has good chances of appearing, since these writers have produced some Hex stories (plus, Hex is very cool). As for Lobo, come on, he's the most fittable DC character to face the kombatants...

Oh, and I'd choose also one non-selectable boss for each side:

MK Boss: Shao Kahn
DC Boss: Darkseid

Black Adam is very cool (unlike most of the other characters from the Captain Marvel's comics), and he actually fits very well in the MK universe with his violent behaviour and all. Unfortunately, as you said, his chances are compromised since he's not a "superpopular main DC villain" (plus, his presence would most likely mean Captain Marvel's inclusion as well, and C.Marvel isn't one of DC's nice designs, in my opinion...).

Nevertheless, I hope he has a chance to be in it.

The "ribcage" is probably Midway's attempt to put an actual scorpion on his face. If you look at his head, the top has an almost insect-like texture.

The MK designs often end up being a smidge too busy so I guess this is consistent at least. For example, in MK:Deception Scorpion's mask on the in-game model looked like the air filter out of my car.

Speaking of MK, the other day I was talking with a friend about how seemingly indestructible the MK franchise is. It was during that conversation that I realized that the MK brand had not only survived against all odd into the present day but that it would probably continue to thrive well into the future. Not only would Scorpion and Sub-Zero be around for years to come, those two dumb-asses would still be chasing each other around long after I'm gone. When I'm old and gray in a retirement home will I be given MK paraphernalia by the staff in order to remind me of the good old days of my youth? It was a sobering, discouraging line of thought.

Today, Midway has posted two stage artworks at the Worlds Collide website. One of them shows the Hell stage (including two UFC fighters fighting each other, but I guess they're just there to represent the kombatants and superheroes/villains), and the other one shows the Metropolis stage (VERY cool).

And although this wasn't officially revealed, it seems that some people already had access to Superman's render as well...

Hopefully Metropolis is 1/4th as cool as the render makes it out to be.

If you look at the hell stage fighters it is Quinton "Rampage" Jackson knocking out Chuck Liddell from their last fight

Honestly do you think teenagers who grew up reading Superman in the 1930s/40s ever imagined seeing him 80 years later in the cinema being a peeping tom and running from earth abandoning his unborn baby?

Well, Boon said both realities were merging together. Maybe that's why this stage is called "Hell" - kinda like a merging between Netherrealm and DC's Hell (I guess it would be Hades's world from the Wonder Woman comics, maybe?).

Gekiganger, thanks for the render! Superman looks good... except for his hair. It looks incredibly artificial (it looks like plastic, actually); come on, the current platforms allow to make a better job than that.

But are Scorpion and Sub-Zero beloved by anyone? Is that why they are so grouchy all the time?

I don't know how nuts this game is going to get but if they have alt costumes for the characters I'm really hoping Ant-head Superman makes it in. That, or perhaps some sort of customization option so I can make everyone in the game have the head of an ant. Since the game already features Batman and Sub-Zero punching each other in the head where do you draw the line on what is too ridiculous?

Midway is quick, isn't it? Sub-Zero looks good, not as good as Scorpion, but still good. Same with Batman; I prefer the outfit Christian Bale wore at the Batman Begins movie, but I guess Midway is trying to bring the uniforms straight from the comics... that said, Batman looks good as well.

I wonder what will they reveal to us in this podcast. There was a rumour in TRMK confirming other characters, but it may be fake (they say Power Girl is confirmed, and she's far from being an iconic DC heroine...), so I wonder if Midway will confirm or deny these rumours...

Heh, try telling that to her fans over at Comicbook Resources. Powergirl was the original Supergirl and has a huge following, which is why she got the opening arc on JSA classified and is getting her own ongoing later this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see her in here at all.

Well, these links are posted in here for the first time.

The inclusion of Flash is old news (it was mentioned in one of the Random News topics), and Sonya has been confirmed as well. However, that interview with Boon brings something new to this board: the confirmation that MK characters and DC villains (and maybe anti-heroes, in case people like Jonah Hex or Lobo are included - thinking better, even Wonder Woman would fit in here after Infinite Crisis...) will have fatalities, while DC heroes (again, maybe not all of them) will keep the opponent alive but give him/her an incredible finishing beating.

I wonder if DC knows about it and if they really approve Superman or Batman appearing decapitated, burned to ashes, thrown into lava or things like that...

Yes, she never wears her jumpsuit like that, but nevertheless, it's the best DC character render from MKvsDC so far. I hope it's not fake...

First podcast is up

They reveal that Shang Tsung will be revealed on Gametrailers TV in a couple of days as well as the official announcement of Catwoman. There will also be gameplay footage popping up at IGN sometime in the future. Nothing really exciting other than that.

It seemed weird that they kind of justified a bad game(in terms of glitches) by saying that no game is ever perfect.

I have fun with MK games with my brothers and friends and know it isn't the most balanced game ever, but Shaolin Monks(a game I thought was fun and wish they would revisit with maybe a little more God of War influence) had to be the most glitch filled game I have EVER played. The game is only 5 or 6 hours long, but I probably encountered a major glitch every 30 minutes.

What were the glitches in Shaolin Monks? I spent far more time goofing around with that game than any sane man should and I don't remember encountering anything too bad. Were the problems more prevalent in the co-op mode?

Yeah, I played it mostly in Co-Op mode

The game froze often with no warning. General freezing probably bogged down the game the most too me. During fatalities, sometimes the background would stay black. The floors and walls were where they were supposed to be, but everything was black. Sometimes that could be fixed by doing another fatality, but sometimes it would just stay black.

I agree. Not a bad design, but is quite weird when Midway put sorcerers like Shang Tsung and Quan Chi with no shirt on.

Nevertheless, I'm glad Tsung is back! So far, I've managed to guess correctly all the 8 confirmed characters. Let's see if my other predictions will turn out right, as well. (they probably won't, though)

I personally think Wonder Woman and Kitana will be next. WW is considered the big name female hero at DC and Kitana would make the most sense as a counterpoint.

After them, the guesses start getting a little bit harder. Liu Kang makes a lot of sense but I'm not sure of who his matchup would be. Maybe Superman due to the "heroic savior" thing but I've heard a lot of rumors of Raiden making it in. Kung Lao will probably be kicked to the curb (again) and I have a sneaking suspicion Johnny Cage won't make it. For the sake of having both a big slow brawler and affirmative action, Jax has a shot at making it. If so, John Stewart might show up as Green Lantern (nearly every other black DC character has a snowball's chance of making it in). Joker is probably guaranteed and probably Lex Luthor but the DC side gets a lot harder to define after that due to the number of second stringers that are good but only moderately well known. For instance, Zatanna would be an awesome choice for this but I don't know how likely it be for her to make it in.

Yes, I hope Wonder Woman and Kitana are next! I used to think Wonder Woman was kinda ridiculous, but after Infinite Crisis I just fell in love with her (BTW, she needs a fatality where she ties the opponent with her lasso, beats him/her, then breaks his/her neck). As for Kitana, well, among the MK fanboys there is a huge debate about whether MK female icon is Sonya or Kitana (I prefer Sonya, personally) - so if Kitana is left out, people who prefer her over Sonya will flood Midway's mailbox with complaints... plus, Kitana's steel fans are awesome!

As for the rest of the cast, I agree that Jax has good chances of appearing. I like John Stewart, but one of Midway's clues to the other DC characters was "military superhero", so Hal Jordan is more likely. Joker and Luthor are good choices as DC villains.

Speaking about Joker, I hope the psycho-couple Mileena and Baraka also enter the selection.

Poor Sonya, she should have refused taking those steroids Jax was so proud of...

Well, despite being a huge detractor of the MK franchise, I should point out that this render is pretty decent (perhaps the best one I've ever seen of a MK character) and I think it depicts her pretty well: you know, if they are interested on a realistic approach for this game, that's what a female, special ops-like soldier should look like at best. You know that the average female soldier looks even manlier than this Sonya, so you shouldn't complain so much...

Nah, she didn't shave her head. Actually, her hair is tied behind her head in a ponytail.

She also looks much better (and much more feminine) in game.

Yes, Captain Marvel is quite an odd choice. I always thought he was kinda goofy (even for the superheroes' standards). Plus, isn't he a teenage boy who becomes adult in his superhero-persona? Is it okay to allow MK characters to kill an underage person (even if he doesn't look like one)?

Liu Kang was a safer choice, but he wasn't certain either... despite being MK main guy (at least storyline-wise), he's far from being popular with the MK players. I'm glad he was chosen, anyway, since he's the best MK choice to balance with Superman (both being the justice idols and such).

You know, I saw a story on this game on some videogame tv show (Gametrailers or something) - they interviewed the MK guys and it seemed to me that the guy was eluding to the fact that you wouldn't be performing fatalities on the DC heroes. I can't and wouldn't swear to that but it makes sense - from the get go I found it hard to believe DC would agree to any visual depiction of their characters demise; let alone a MK ultraviolent death.

But doesn't the promotional trailer (the new one, which shows Sonya, Catwoman, Tsung and Flash) ends with Scorpion performing his fatality on Flash (despite the scene cuts when he is about to spit fire, then we just hear a yell)?

I watched the most recent trailer and JaP is right - that's definitely the start of a Scorpion fatality on Flash. I don't see how they'd get around it unless they cut away or something (which would be extremely weak).

Still, I'm amazed DC would let someone depict the violent deaths of their iconic characters. I wonder what their motives are...

I'm assuming the violence won't actually be gory. Most likely the character would generically get engulfed in flame and die or they are left with a skeleton. Head/heart/spine/appendix rips probably won't be used.

A new interview/trailer from Gametrailers. Highlights include Scorpion doing a fatality, Superman beating a guy until he should be dead but isn't actually dead, and Batman getting kicked in the nuts. This game continues to fascinate me for all the wrong reasons. Also of interest is the news that the game engine is scaling back on the dial-a-combos and will be emphasizing a more 2D approach to gameplay. It seems that the newest thing in 3D fighters is 2D.

Also, I'm a fan of Capt. Marvel so I think it would be interesting to see how he turns out. Though I will admit, a part of it seems...wrong.

Now I wonder who are going to be the next revealed characters. I hope it's Wonder Woman and Kitana - and that their renders make them look like WOMEN, not men with huge breasts like Sonya's (damn, I still don't get how Sonya's in-game screenshots show her so pretty and feminine, yet her render is so bad that even IGN mocked her...).

Those renders do look good and I think Captain Marvel is going to have the Rock of Eternity as his stage. I really do hope the two princesses are next since they counterpart each other well and as far as WW, there's a sizable "why haven't they shown her yet?" behind her absence. Then again, thy may be trying to prevent another Sonya fiasco and if so, they should certainly take their time.

Also, looks like Joker and a Green Lantern will be in the game according to sources. No word on which GL it will be.

Jax is in the game, yay! I hope they don't put him as a black man stereotype like he was in MK:DA, though. I always saw Jax as the typical military guy, serious, quiet and determined (and kinda like a big brother to Sonya).

The other three are nice additions as well. I prefer Kyle Rayner over Hal Jordan, but Jordan is fine, too.

No clue. I'm wondering if it would be because the audience expected someone different but I don't get it. While he did get a bit ghettofied in the 3D games he's a solid character in his own right, recognizable to casuals, and probably one of the few characters who stands a chance at being a grappler.

...Not much likely. That title bombed; what's the chance that the few people who actually played it would be at the same place, same time?

I'm glad Jax will be in there, anyway. As for Kitana, I hope she gets luckier with her render than Sonya did (or than Kitana herself did with her unmasked face in MK:Shaolin Monks); and that although she'll surely be wearing just a bathing suit and long boots, that she doesn't get oversexualized. After all, she's a princess, not a low-class stripper.

Kitana isn't a low-class stripper... she's one of those, ritzy, top of the line strippers. She probably has her own MySpace page and everything.

A new trailer has popped up. That's an awful lot of recycled animation for a brand new game.

I don't see recycled animation, but signature moves being repeated.
Somehow I feel more excited about this game than for any SC game ever released (except for the first one).

WOW!!

Kitana looks gorgeous! Sexy, but also a little tough. Her eyes are amazing, and I'm surprised her breasts aren't as big (or as exposed) as Catwoman's or Sonya's. The only flaw I can see is that her steel fans are absent from this render (come on, the fans are her trademark).

Kitana isn't one of my favorite characters, but I must say Midway did a great job with her! Now, if they could only re-do Sonya's render...

The Kitana render doesn't really look much like a render. A lot of the details seem airbrushed in, especially the hair and eyes.

Apparently one of the guys on the podcast said there was a possibility of DLC costumes for something like "The Dark Knight" Joker. I would love to see that.

Wow, that... is the worst Kitana I've ever seen. Even MK2 Kitana looked better than that, and that was a pretty ugly wig. The only thing is I don't know whether to call it an ugly render or ugly artwork because of all the bad airbrushing.

It's funny because the DC renders have really looked good so far, but for whatever reason Midway can't seem to get its own characters right.

Not the best render so far; his mouth looks quite unrealistic. I actually like the metallic arms in the render.

Oh well, at least he looks much better than he did in Deadly Alliance.

Yes, she's practically topless! On the good side, her breasts are really beautiful; on the bad side, girls (and the people who classify the games) won't like this sexist decision...

WOW, it's Hal Jordan! I thought for sure we'd be stuck with John Stewart again, considering he's been the go-to token black-Lantern for the Justice League 'toon and the upcoming movie. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised, and the DC fanboys will surely be pleased. Personally, my fave GL is Kyle Rayner, but Hal was my hero when I was growing up (right up there with Optimus Prime). Like Flash and Catwoman, I'm not really impressed with the costume tweaks, but I've seen much worse before, and I'm so shocked it's Hal that I'll cease my bitching right now.

"Wonder Woman, Raiden, Kano and Deathstroke" , posted Thu 21 Aug 02:38post reply

All four of them were confirmed at the Leipzig Games Convention 2008. I'm glad for three of them, but wish Kano was replaced with Mileena. After all, now there's only one spot left for each side, and with a great part of the MK fans begging for Johnny Cage or Reptile (and the lack of a third iconic heroine or villainess in DC), Mileena's chances are next to none...

Anyway, here you can see a video of MKvsDC presented at the Leipzig Convention, plus a low-quality render of Wonder Woman (nice, but her face doesn't look very realistic for the next-gen standards, besides the fact her face looks like a middle-aged woman who had plastic surgery...).

It took them long enough to confirm WW. I expected Raiden to show up and I'm very glad to see Deathstroke. The last playable character for both sides seems to be a complete wildcard now. I'm pretty sure that the MK character will be another villian.

Joker's a villian in the DC Universe, ergo: Unlimited access to Kryptonite.

Answer: Kryptonite Bullet.

I kinda wish they had the sound up on the game he was playing, it'd be nice to know how annoying the Joker's laugh was going to be

No, rather than coming up with a bunch of crappy character-by-character explanations, Midway's official all-encompassing nerd-repellant bomb is "Superman is very suck in magic realm, bullet and punch hurt Superman very much in MK yay"

I admit MK v.s DC looks a little crude in the visuals department but honestly this project actually gives me some enthusiasm.

Soul Calibur 4 is beautiful as hell but honestly I got bored with it in 5 minutes as it brought nothing new to the table, and the Yoda cameo really was kind of Lame in the end as they tried to be so serious about it it came off as pretentious.

At least Midway knows it is nutty and are sticking with it.
