I especially like how the more it goes on, the darker it gets until you can barely see anything around yourself adding to the loneliness of the game/score. And the near-ending of that level where you have to play in the game show is so freaking bizarre. None of the questions make sense or have a right answer. Loved it.
Ahhh fuck, it's been so long since I played it that I confused two different levels haha. Cheers for the YouTube clip, that level still sends chills up my spine!

Wow, holy fuck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBY0Hzh0BSQ

New Mortal Kombat 9 and it looks amazing. It looks like they took MK 2 and really revamped it. Drool.. too bad the newest console I own is a PS2.

I like that its gone back to what seems like a primarily side-scrolling fighting system.

I've been watching Live E3 coverage on G4 today and yesterday..I missed the Microsoft press conference today however. I'm not really looking forward to much unfortunately. I don't own a Wii, but some cool games coming out, for example a 2-d Donkey Kong and a new Goldeneye! Crazy!

It was fucking painful to watch. I actually felt an overwhelming urge to turn away from the screen at certain points. The question is, why do we keep watching this shit when it's the same cringe-worthy nonsense every year?

There were moments when I wasn't sure whether to laugh or grind my teeth, for example when I heard phrases like "radical new car experiences" and "we believe gaming should be open to everyone". Yeah, because the all-powerful gaming czar has decreed that only certain people can play games

It's precisely what one would expect if you were to take insufferably empty "managerial speak", arrogant back-slapping/self-congratulation and video game executives who've never held a control pad in their lives, and then mash them all together and put it on stage.

I'm not watching any more of it, I'm just gonna wait for the gameplay footage and trailers to be uploaded to gametrailers.com or whathaveyou. I owe it to myself.

I played the new Mortal Kombat demo with my wee bro on his Xbox. It's pretty fuckin' good, at least compared to what the series was like after the move to 3D. The models are still 3D but it plays like the 2D games.

Chris, I know you're a big fan of the originals, I'd be interested to know what you think of this new incarnation. I think the demo showed some real strength and it has me interested in fighting games again after having grown bored of them about half way through MK3 in the mid-90s.

I've also been playing split screen cop-op with my wee bro on Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies, and more recently Left 4 Dead 2. The latter is definitely more fun. CoD got real boring real quick, especially when we discovered there was no "end" to the game, you just have to last as long as you can, which is kinda like being told you have a non-contagious but terminal STD.

I have been dyyyyyyiiinnggg to play the new MK. The previews look so fucking great and I was really excited to see them abandoning the horrible 3dD game play. This is the only game that's ever made me want to get an XBox

I've been playing a lot of L.A Noire since it came out the other week. It's pretty sweet!

Completely missed this thread, sorry.

The demo looked fun to me, but my PS3 died in March so I won't get a chance to find out anytime soon. I still play MK2 competitively and the opinion seems to vary among the high level players. Apparently it plays a lot like the older MK games (=awesome), but a couple of people have complained to me that everyone has the same attributes, which is pretty fucking boring.

I guess the plus side is that it keeps the game more balanced than the old MK games. By comparison, if you rock MK2 against any high level player, your chance of beating, say, Mileena with Baraka or Liu Kang with Scorpion are about 10%. That's pretty fucking unbalanced to say the least. UMK3, which is similarly popular through online play, is similarly unbalanced.

I've been playing the new MK a lot as one of my best friend's bought it the day it came out (I don't own any of the platforms). As a person who was also a die-hard old school MK fan (MK2 - Trilogy/UMK3 [I liked the Trilogy version more]) I fucking love it. Now, though I have never played competitively (but have against some friends that have) on UMK3, I'd say it seems fairly balanced. My own opinion here probably means pretty much nill though, as I have no actual "competitive" play. My old characters, depending on the game, used to be Kabal, Reptile, Noob, Mileena, and Sindel. However, with the new version I find myself playing mainly as Baraka (who I used to hate) and Katana. Haven't had much time to spend on any other characters but I have gravitated towards them for some reason (maybe its their excessive blood spill they seem to cause).

Don't know how much any of that means from a non-competitive player, but besides all that, the game is pretty fun and the fatalities are fucking awesome. I was extremely excited when I first read about it being a throwback to the first 3 releases and the fact that they did a pretty good job of that, while keeping it modern, makes me a happy boy.

UMK3 was pretty unbalanced. If you ever watch a UMK3 tournament, almost every fight is Kabal vs. Human Smoke, the top two guys in the game, and Kabal usually wins.

Trilogy was even more unbalanced with the additions of Noob Saibot and Rain, both of whom have extremely easy infinites; so easy that I can do them (and I'm not very good at the MK3 series games). Nobody runs MKT tournies anymore, but when the game was hot and people did Noob and Rain were banned from play.

Fun games, though, especially by adding the run function and taking away some of the shit that made MK2 a turtle fest. If I were any good at them, I'd play online for sure. The arcade version of UMK3 is still quite popular on many kaillera servers.
