Mortal Kombat VS DC: Fatalities!!!

Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe came out this week and although I neither have a PS3 or an XBox 360 to play it, I watched the Fatality videos on Gametrailers and came out more than disappointed. Simply put, they've neutered the concept of fatalies. When Mortal Kombat first came out, it was a hit not because of the in-depth game play; the draw of the game was the fatalities. They were wacky, bloody, gory, cartoony, and overall, just fun to watch. With MK VS DC, they've essentially replaced what we once knew as fatalities with just... moves. I guess it's a bit more realistic, but fuck, I wanna play a Mortal Kombat game for it's bloody fatalities! I've attached a few of the videos, see for yourself.






If you need a reminder of what fatalities were all about, check out this fun little compilation:

    From what I've seen, The DC Character's "Heroic Brutalities" are more impressive than the Mortal Kombat character's "Fatalities." Baraka's in particular is just pathetic. I did get a kick out of the one that had the "MK" arcade cabinet fall on someone though, that was funny.

    I think when I first heard about the title, I immediately thought "Wow, DC is letting their superheroes get mutilated?" I found it hard to believe that DC would ever let someone chop off Batman's head or have Superman brutally rip open someone's heart. I mean, these superheroes had a "code of conduct". After seeing Batman's "Heroic Brutality," I think I got a sense of what was written in the fine print that MK had to agree to. Despite the oxymoron of "heroic brutality", Superman's finishing move was pretty cool, though I think the neck should've snapped before the cement does. :)

Have your say!
