Fatalities for Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe

Even though it was initially announced that the upcoming cross-over fighter Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe would have No Fatalities, MK creator Ed Boon has recently revealed that the trademark finishing moves of Mortal Kombat will indeed be in the game. How can this be, you may ask, since heroes like Superman and Batman would NEVER kill in malice or cold blood. Well, according to Boon, the DC heroes who don’t normally kill will only do ‘brutalities’ on their opponents, which while nasty, will leave the enemy alive. DC villains and the MK combatants will, however, still sport fatal fatalities.

Okay… all I can say is… this game… is dumb. I didn’t like the premise when I first heard it, and this sounds even sillier. All this accomplishes is making me think that Midway has no idea where they’re going with in this fiasco fighter. There simply is no way to do justice to the classic heroes of DC by throwing them in with the dregs of fighting games, I say. In any case, there has never been a great DC-based fighter anyway (or game for that matter, I think), and Mortal Kombat has not been good since MK2. 

PAH. Give me Soulcalibur IV or Tekken 6 anyday and twice on weekends. Damn, give me freakin’ STAKE: Fortune Fighters! Okay, probably not STAKE…
