Midway has revealed a few bits of information about the latest Mortal Kombat(for Playstation and X-box) title, Mortal Kombat: Deception. using an enhanced version of the Deadly Alliance engine, Midway promises photo-realistic characters models as well as multi-tiered enviroments and- in a first for the series - ONLINE PLAY. The newlyreleased trailer offered up even more detail. Baraka appears prominently, While Sub-zero, Scorpion, and Mileena make cameos. Some grislt stage fatalities were shown as well - one character tossed into a lava pool, and another was kicked in between two giant spiked post, Which ground the character into paste and sprayed blood every where. As if that wasnt enough to get your blood lust on, Deception is taking the series to exciting new places. It will feature several intriguing gameplay types, including a free-roaming quest mode (with time-sensitive fights) where youll unlock MK items as you go. Also confirmed are a chess based battle mode and a very interesting puzzle game type reminiscent of super puzzle fighter 2 turbo. Best of all each of these modes is available online.

I am not selling my GC (or other Nintendo items :cool: ), but I will purchase other systems when I have time and money.

I'm sick of not getting any Tekken or Virtua Fighter of Dead or Alive or other hott games that I can only play at a friend's house. :mad:

anybody have a character list yet?

I heard Noob Sabot is in it and he is grey and black. Baraka looks wicked bad. Those are the only two ive heard of.

Before I chat MK6, I gotta address this 'system racism'.

Gentlemen, how old are you ? The days of, "Nintendo's better than Sega!" should remain in your middle school years, unless you're still in those days. Don't think any one of the big three is the 'end all' system simply because you have it. Take each system for what it is, the goods and the bad; cause they both have 'em. Each system has great reasons to be played and each reason has merit in the gaming world. Be it a 16 player Halo session or a four player Mario Kart Double Dash party. I personally play whatever's good on whatever system, I'm not gonna miss out on Metal Gear because I'm a Nintendo fan. Or Metroid Prime because I'm down with Sony. You get the idea; hopefully.

Now Mortal Kombat is strangely cool for the fact that it doesn't try to excell the fighting genra in technology, but in good 'ol fashion 'what's fun?' thinking. The makers of MK always thought about the fans when they produce their games, anyone could tell. MK6 won't look as good or play as good as the next DOA, Soul Calibur, or Virtua Fighter; but it's still gonna be a top selling American made fighter. And we need more of those anyway.

The original Mortal kombat wasnt suppose to last. It was something they through together just for fun. Once the game became popular (mainly do to the incredible amount of blood in a 16 bit system) They decided to market the Game into the best fighting game. I do say fighting game now. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance focused on the fighting part of Mortal Kombat. The Characters still had there Hightened, unreal moves (fireballs, soul stealing,laser eyes,etc.etc.) but also gave them all 2 martinal arts fighting styles both with there own move set and a weapon style fighting with its own move set.


As for your "nintendo's better than Sega" speech. Some Game systems are indeed better than others not because you own it but because of Qualitie and game play. Systems such as Nintendos Virtual Red had nothing to offer the games were red coloured and boring to play. Hence the reason only a handful of games were made and the system was shortly taken off the shelf. Segas Dreamcast died off not because of Graphics but because of bulky controlers and Lack of good games. Its not a matter of what you own or what you favor but what the qualitie of the system is and the games it has to offer.

Would you miss out on a great game because you believe it's on an inferior system? Do you not believe that the reletively weaker GBA can have a game that beats a console game in both gameplay and presentation? The Dreamcast had a sad short life and the Virtual Boy seems to be ressurrecting as a Nintendo DS, but neither of those 'gimmicks' were my focus in my speech. I was talking about the big three that's the core of such a discussion. You think I'd take someone who chooses a Virtual Boy over a PS2 serious enough to reply? I'd pretty much give you the 'agreeing without looking like it' award to you seeing as how there's nothing in your reply that's really a counter-point ot mine. Especially after you read both of ours closely.

I'm pretty sure Mileena is back, too.

I am gonna be uber-pissed if they're bringing back obscure folks like Ermac and Nightwolf, and Liu Kang stays dead. Hell, I'll probably still buy it (as long as they change that godawful system of buying unlockables)
