A Tribute To Mortal Kombat 9's Boss Characters

By: starlordtitus Jul 7, 2011 | 7 Comments

The ever powerful boss characters of Mortal Kombat 9 display significantly greater strength than all the other Kombatants. The Shokans Goro and Kintaro, the Emperor Shao Kahn. Power incarnate, these dreaded enemies stand between you and victory.

Goro

About Goro: Goro's fighting style always revolved around taking advantage of his brute strength and surprising agility. In the early games. Goro was an imbalanced character. All of his moves did far more damage then all of the other characters and because of that he was notoriously difficult to defeat in the first game. In 3D games, he was toned down to make him more balanced. His current depiction is being powerful but slow. Goro is associated with the element of Fire. Like Kintaro, he could either project fireballs either from his mouth or his hands.

 

Kintaro

 

Real Name Kintaro Age Unknown Height 8' 5" (2.57 m) Weight 650 lbs (295 kg) Origin Outworld Resides Outworld Species Shokan (Tigrar lineage)

Mortal Kombat (2011) (sub-boss) Portrayers Rhasaan Orange

 

 About Kintaro: Like any other Shokan, Kintaro boasts brute strength, stamina and prowess. Unlike his brethren, Kintaro hails from a subspecies specializing in savagery. Combined with savage style of kombat and a mercilessness makes him one of the most lethal kombatants on the battle ground.

For a long time after his introduction, he was seen as one of the hardest bosses in all of the Mortal Kombat series. This was because he was able to grabl someone in mid-attack and throw him or her to the ground, usually followed by a teleport-stomp. He also shot up to three fireballs at a time. The extreme difficulty in defeating him was enough to provoke a comment from Video Games magazine, in their 1993 review of the home versions of MKII, that Kintaro was "the hardest fighting game boss ever...He doesn't just beat you; he kicks your ass."

 

Shao Kahn

About Shao Kahn: Shao Kahn is shown to be an immensely powerful being throughout the series. He is able to utilize magic and has superhuman strength. He is also able to charge at the opponent with considerable speed and power. In Mortal Kombat 9, Shao Kahn is by far, supreme and above Goro and Kintaro. Able to attack and grab even while being attacked. He also has incredible health along with up to par defenses.

Mortal Kombat Demo Impressions

By: Cinderkin Mar 9, 2011 | 20 Comments

The demo is just around the corner for the PS3 and Xbox 360 jimmys will be getting it soon after that. But is it worth the download? Has Mortal Kombat truly gone back to it's roots and become a good fighting game again or is it time to bury this classic.

I got my hands on the demo last night and I played it for a little over an hour. Mortal Kombat has always been about the gore and violence. The original 3 (MK, MKII, and UMK3) were some of the best fighting games around. Which is saying a lot with games like Street Fighter II, Fatal Fury, and Samurai Showdown to compete with. We all know Mortal Kombat has fallen off with it's latest release Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, which was a teen rated game, and offered no real fatalities or gore.

Well NetherRealms Studio and Warner Brothers have brought Mortal Kombat back to life and the demo proves it. The demo lets you choose from Scorpion, Johnny Cage, Mileena, and Sub-Zero. It offers 1-2 players and the traditional Arcade Ladder, where you fight one opponent after another until you defeat Shao Khan at the top. Although the demo only allows you to fight 4 out of the 10 opponents in the ladder it is more than enough to get the feeling of the game. Classic stages like The Pit II and The Living Forest return for the demo, and they are looking better than ever. Everything you remember about these stages are there and brought to life with the new 3D graphics. You can even see other characters from the recent games fighting on the other side of the pit. I noticed Frost and Kenji fighting it out, but a game that just looks nice isn't everything. How well does it play?

The new Mortal Kombat has gone back to it's roots with 2D gameplay and it has paid off big time. The controls are fluid and respond better then they ever have in a Mortal Kombat game. The combos are there and they work well. At first the game will feel slow and clunky, due to playing so much SSF4 and MvC3, but onces you play a few matches you'll feel right at home. The game now has a new Special Meter bar at the bottom of the screen ala SSF4, where you can build meter and perform enhanced special moves (EX Moves), combo breakers, and now the new X-Ray moves (Ultras). The enhanced special moves are just stronger versions with added differences to make them better. Take Sub-Zero's Ice Ball, if you enhance the move, then it becomes an Ice Beam and can't be jumped over. X-Ray moves are new to the series and are not only cool to look at, but they are great for huge damage. Although they can be blocked fairly easy, in just my short time with the demo I found a ton of ways to combo into the X-Ray moves for massive damage.

How well do the characters play in regards to there original counter parts? Almost exactly like they did before. The characters look amazing and play like they should play. Scorpion has his classic Spear move, Sub-Zero has his Ice Ball, and Johnny Cage still packs a Nut-Punch move. Speaking of the Nut-Punch, back in the day you couldn't perform this move on female characters. Johnny would just do the splits when fighting a female, and unless Mileena's secret is out of the bag, this move can now be performed on females. From what I've played so far, it seems that Johnny Cage is a beginner character, he has fast and easy combos while only doing little damage. I got 7 Flawless Victories with him during my ladder run on Hard. Sub-Zero and Mileena are advanced characters, their combos aren't as easy, but do more damage. So far I'm really liking Johnny Cage and Scorpion. In the demo each fighter gets 1 fatality and a stage fatality for the Pit II, and the full game has a minimum of 2 fatalities per character and I think every stage has a fatality.

Overall I love what they have done with Mortal Kombat. They brought back one of my favorite franchises and it looks and feels better than ever. I was worried that the gameplay wouldn't live up and I would have to say goodbye to Mortal Kombat, but now all of my fears have gone out the window. I can't wait for this game when it drops April 19th. Anyone else who was worried about the gameplay fear not. Go pre order this game it's going to be amazing. Everything you remember about Mortal Kombat and more. FINISH HIM!!!!

Check out this new Trailer from the demo:

Bottom Line Demo: Must Play!

Be sure to check back in April for the Review of the full game. Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

ZOMG! Is that Noob Saibot Mortal Kombat @ E3 2010

By: goukijones Jun 19, 2010 | 7 Comments

Super Street Fighter IV has competition again Mortal Kombat is back. People will be playing this in tournaments.

First stop of day 2 E3 2010 was the Mortal Kombat demonstration in the Warner Bros. booth. We had to wait for the first rack of nuabs to finish, because we were a little late.

As we enter the private room I noticed t-shirts draped over the chairs. Bonus!! A bad ass exclusive Mortal Kombat t-shirt, with an exposed rib cage and it says Finish Him on the back. Anyway, then I realized that the Jimmy in the front of the room was, Ed frickin Boon man! The demonstration was hosted by Ed Boon, the series creator. On the a giant projector screen Sub-Zero and Scorpion were highlighted on the character select. Right away this felt like Mortal Kombat II to me.

My boy, Ed talks about how Mortal Kombat is going back to its roots and that’s why the game name is just Mortal Kombat. Sub-Zero and Scorpion begin to fight and it looks incredible. The level was the Living Forest from Mortal Kombat II, you could see snakes and bugs crawling through the dead bodies in the back ground. Wait this super detailed and bad ass fight against two of the worlds most well know ninja lookin’ dudes. Scorpion has his chain spike … “Get over here!” Sub-Zero has his classic ice ball. Scorpion can teleport and when he does he leaves behind a cloud of smoke that looks almost just like him. Sub-Zero shoots ice at the ground, but Scorpion doesn’t slip. His foot is stuck in the ice, Sub-Zero walks up and uppercuts him in the GARILL! The fight continues and Scorpion wins … Finish Him. The testers could not pull off the fatality. NUBFARM!

Then we switched it up to the new tag team system. You get two guys and I get two guys. You can call in for assists or you can swap out at any time. The combat is totally in-depth, tons of combos and juggles. Juggle in and out with your partner. There’s a super bar kind of, it can be used for EX type moves that are larger and do more damage. Combo breaker in case you are getting your ass kicked. Oh and the max super … does like a mini fatality during the match that cuts away to bones breaking punches, sword cutting action and well just blood spilling everywhere. BatRastered says like CSI when they do the special effects, but who watches CSI? Remember that Jet Li movie with the slow motion bone breaking like wire frame or whatever … never mind. This new Mortal Kombat is amazing.

A couple of other details are that there were 26 character slots, a random slot, and a DLC slot. They didn’t take any questions, I’m sorry I don’t know if there will be DLC characters. That DLC slot made me think there might be. The title screen was Sub-Zero punching the shit out of Scorpion or vice versa, I don’t know I don’t remember, I had a few sips of whiskey already at this point and I’m having one actually right now while I’m writing this. Wait …. Watch this video.
