I will buy it just because it's a fighting game, but I still can't see how is this supposed the 10th return in glory of MK9

I'm surprised they didn't just stick with "Mortal Kombat" as the name. IMO, it suits it way better than "Mortal Kombat 9"

And I wish I could preorder it from Amazon just to get that amazing Reptile Klassic skin but I hate ordering things online.

I saw the 9 as an attempt to try to put this in the same sequence of the more classics games (1,2,3 umk3) to gave the game more ''prestige''

I've got it preordered. I'm torn between wether i am more hyped for it or mvc3, but then again, that probably won't be an issue since there will be some 70+ days between the two.

actually it is just called "Mortal Kombat" people just add the 9 to avoid confusion with the first one

Getting this game simply because MK was one of the first fighting games i played while growing up.

I would buy this game for the same reason of Shinra, but I'm not really sure about what I'm going to do... At the beginning of MK series, blood was a funny feature of that franchise, it was innocent and naive in some way... But now, with all this new graphics and all... I don't know, I don't find it funny at all, it's more like gore and scary, and disgusting...

Even though I share your opinion, I think that is in the other way, even though when I was a kid was cool and hip to see all that blood, I was more scared at the beggining for my more innocent mind

But in retrospective, people from the 90's were really stupid, I mean, the gore there is so over the top that is hilarious, and now, is even more hilarious

I could never take MK seriously for that same reason

lol i remember all the stupid stuff they had like when you do a uppercut you'll here Shao Khan saying something in the background and doing a fatality or long combo will make Ed boon appear on the the screen...but it seems that the new generation only has taste for games with good graphics.

I wanna get it, and probably will... I hope they're truly serious about being competitive... Once Deadly Alliance hit, people were asking for it to not be floaty, and it still looks floaty and not fluid... I hope when they say hardcore that they aren't just saying that because there are "just frame" moves in the game... They have alot to live up to... MK2 was the best imo, with UMK3 in 2nd (actually they're tied)... When you did combos in MK2, you can truly say you did them and it wasn't dial-a-combo required... That's when I learned how to buffer doing Katana's jumpkick to fan toss combos...
