    Why do you have to be so difficult, Keith?

    No, man. Keith is warning us of a Skrull in our midst!
    He's saying it's NOT Kyle!

    I'm on to you, KyleWPeterSKRULL!

    You know, this "being funny" thing never works out for you.

    it's a good game, but it was nothing new and I wouldn't say it's one of the "best games ever". I played it, beat it, and that was that

    if batman has a fatality i will kill someone

    I believe it's been confirmed that there'll be no fatalities.

    That's retarded. There's so much you could do with DC-related fatalities.

    So much. I mean, Superman alone has the freeze breath and the laser-beam eyes.

    Flash could kill someone. At the speed of light.

    Now it's just a crap fighting game with ninjas that no one's cared about for years.

    Your lack of taste doesn't mean it isn't one of the best games ever made. It just means you have poor taste in games, that's all.

    Keith's aiming a little low and you're aiming a little high. It was a pretty solid platformer with some interesting ideas that were fairly well executed.

    Yeah, I've always thought his work was solid but this was the first time I've really been wowed by it. He's hit a great iconic version of the characters. Anyone who likes Superman but hasn't liked him lately should get on board for this new story arc.

    Can anyone provide a scan of the new Superman art? I gotta admit that during the whole Superman thing that happened last year, where both Camelot Falls AND Last Son were both horribly delayed, and they had some crappy filler issues that I grew really frustrated with Superman in general. Not to mention the same thing happened with Superman Confidential, and now its completely canceled. If Superman / Action Comics are good again, I might start collecting them again, but I've just been rather disenchanted with the entire Superman label lately.

    Here are a couple of scans from the latest issue. This page reminded me a little of John Byrne:

    The coloring on the S symbol is weird because it makes it look like it actually pops off his chest

    also what happened to Lois' short hair


    I dunno, but I hated it, so I'm glad to see that her long hair is back.

    Also those pictures not only look a little bit like the 80s movie, that pretty much *is* Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder.

    Totally irrational, I agree.

    Although these finishing moves intrigue me.

    Presumably it will be something along the lines of the Marvel Vs Capcom games where the fighter lets off some massive blast/attack based on their abilities (eg Cyclopes doing a huge screen-sized optic blast).

    Maybe Batman will crash the Bat-Jet into them :D

    Though if they objected to suchlike, then they probably shouldn't have associated their brand with a series of games called Mortal Kombat in the first place. Just sayin', is all.

    No disagreements here, I think it's an inexplicable decision which will probably be as awful as Rise of the Imperfects. Hell, MK is also known for using motion capture instead of sprites, right? Are they going to have some dude in a superman suit doing fly kicks?

    They'll probably get their mocap guy to do the flying kick first, then they'll splice it into a Superman model.

    But yeah, this whole thing is kind've silly. Overkill, gorefest fatalities is pretty much the only thing that sets Mortal Kombat apart from other fighting games. And they've never been particularly good to begin with. I'd much rather see a pure DC fighting game so you could have more over-the-top fights with destructible terrain. No one's going to believe that Lui Kang can take Captain Marvel, though.

    Even an all DC game would be weird, because there is no reason Green Arrow should be able to stand toe to toe with Superman or Wonder Woman. DC doesn't lend itself to fighting games. Crossover fighting games focused on gore? Even worse.

    Well, if it was over the top like MvC, it could conceivably work. I mean, you can have Captain America beat up Shuma Gorath there.

    yeah

    scorpion's spear bounces off superman's chest, superman wraps scorpion in a lamppost and drops him off at police headquarters.

    There's a red sun in the Mortal Kombat games, so at least that's an explanation for that.

    Also, Scorpion's probably magic and shit.

    Mortal Kombat VS DC is actually a meta-game where outcomes of battles aren't decided by the characters involved, but rather a diverse roster of player controlled nerds who, in a variety of forums (From Newsarama to Gamefaqs to a desolate Ice World), debate to the death over who is strongest of them all.

    Interestingly enough, even when you win this game, you're still declared a loser.
