View Full Version : MK: Deception -- FATALITY!

Here's a brief vid Ed Boon presented at E3!! :D

Beforehand, I must say that ...

* Scorpion's "Arm Rip & Batter Up" Fatality will probably end up on Jax when the game ships.

* Ed Boon is caught making a flub at the end saying Deception is rated E for Everyone. I doubt that very much! :D

* All 24 characters have 2 Fatalities and 1 Hari-Kiri (e.g. Suicide-Ality). Unfortunately, the Suicide-Ality is not shown in this vid. However, I did see one and it left me in stitches. Ermac was about to do his "Telekenetic Draw And Quarter" Fatality on the victim ... when the camera suddenly zoomed in on the victim!! The victim reached up, grabbed his own head with both hands, and gave it a violent, neck-snapping twist ... and then fell over like a tree. :p

* These Fatalities are leagues above those in Deadly Alliance ... especially Sub-Zero, Ermac, and Baraka!! You can hear the crowd go "Ooooh" and cheer when they see some of these. Personally, I really love how they combined Sub-Zero's classic MK1 and MK2 Fatalities (yes, all three of them) into just one of his Fatalities in Deception!! :drooling:

Without further ado ... enjoy! :)

Shweet I cant wait and I hope they bring back Rain. didnt like the last two that much after moved to 3d but this one has me hooked. Me and liqud x spent our lives at the arcades back in the day mastering these games.

for or anyone interested midway is releaseing arcade perfect ports of MK 1,2 and 3 later in the year on one disk with other arcade games. :drooling:

I don't think we'll be seeing Rain in an another MK game for a long time, if ever. He was mainly a stop-gap character in Trilogy because fans got pissed over being teased of his presence in UMK3 (he was shown in attract mode but wasn't a playable or secret character).

Another thing -- Every stage has some kind of booby trap that may give you the impression of a stage fatality, like the meat grinder, the molten press, or being knocked off a platform into a spike. These aren't considered stage fatalities at all -- they're just a MK style "Ring Out". Some people are kinda of ticked at the lack of realism in it, tho, and feel that if you get knocked into the meatgrinder (or other booby trap) in Round 1, you shoudn't come back for Round 2. The match should end right then and there. The Midway team considered it ... and thought better of it as it would grossly award turtling. How would you feel if you battered the hell out of someone Round 1 and, when Round 2 comes up, they pulled off that one single lucky poke that sent you into a fatal booby trap, ending the match entirely with no third round? Sure, it's realistic ... but it would kill the gameplay because noobs would be milking mere technicalities in the gaming engine instead of learning the combo system or everything else Deception has to offer. So ... luckily ... that doesn't happen and it's considered a "ring out" instead. Heh, Boon's exact words on the subject were, "Realism sucks ... and who pays for realism anyway?"

To a degree, he's right. Too much realism in a game can kill its potential with certain auidences. For example, I think most of the Tom Clancy games have too much realism and I've never jumped on the Rainbow 6 Series bandwagon. I rented Rainbow 6 for the DC one day and was turned off immediately within seconds of the first mission. I took 5 steps and got headshotted. Therefore, IMO, Splinter Cell is the only Tom Clancy game worth a damn. At least, it was playable ... :)

After seeing the success of Silent Hill and Resident Evil on the PC, Midway's taking another chance by outsourcing the PC port of "The Suffering" out to Encore Software. If it does as well as it has done on the consoles, Midway could become inclined to outsource a PC port of MK Deception! :)

All previous MK games except for MK Deadly Alliance and Ultimate MK3 were released on the PC thru GT Interactive. They were compatible with gamepads such as those made by Interact/3Dfx and Gravis. Now, with USB adapters that allow the use of a PS or X-Box controller on a PC available -- either online or at Radio Shack for about $15-20 -- there's literally no excuse why the PC market shoudn't have a kick-ass fighting game! :D

Especially since Soul Caliber (fighting fun) and Dead or Alive (eye candy) leaped onto the scene. One of my buddies who's also a huge MK fan was telling me about this iteration, and it looks like Midway might actually get it right this time. I'm looking forward to seeing it in action.

Only headache for these types of games is to make sure it runs smoothly and consistantly on the PC.. Although I bet most of the problems would be solved by raising the min pc levels to something more realistic, making sure enough physical ram is available during the game, and turn off all the background processes...


I also have an adapter to use my Playstation 2 controllers. The biggest headache is usually setting up the binds initially. But after that, it works nicely.

Is this game coming out on the PS2? :retard:

Might be a good justification along with GTA:SA and a few other games on why I should buy a PS2. MK : DA is on PS 2 too... :)

Dang skippy. Try to see if you can snag yourself a Wireless-G Xbox adapter for $40 like Vash and I did. Then get your butt online so we can beat you down in Halo 2. I'm gonna get hooked up with a free Live subscription this week, and my first order of business will be to download the 2 hurricane packs for Ninja Gaiden. Then in a couple weeks, I'll be busting heads in DOA: Ultimate...and if I'm not busting heads, there certainly will be "busts" of other sorts. :luv:
