Again distinctly meh, granted this time im drunk as billio, so I may change my tune tomorrow once i read what i wrtoe

Flippers UP, people!

Glad to see I'm not the only one to kall it Marvel Vs DC. Still looks great to me. Although the klose kombat things looks a little out of place. This is Vegas kould be alright. It looks like an American less swave version of James Bond which kould be kool. I love the MK misuse of the letter 'K'.

Only 10 vs 10, that sounds a little sparse.

And was I right in spotting Raoul Duke at the table in Vegas?

That was the first time I have seen a Brutality in the MK vs. DC game. I am liking it. I can't wait to see what the other heroes do to end their matches.

I like when Julianne kept kicking the Flash when John Edwards was trying to show off the close combat feature.

Totally. Those guys have a great sense of humor. I didn't want to like the game, but I did and now I can't wait to play it.

Totally. Those brutalities were awesome. I know everyone was worried when they said they weren't gonna do the fatalities, but they turned out pretty cool.

And yes. Didn't stop kicking. Couldn't help myself. >.<

Just like when I play.
Friend: "Just hold on for a sec, I want to show you this move."
Me: Fatality. "Huh, I was ignoring you for a sec."
Friend: "I hate you."

And that's why I have no friends.

This Is Vegas: There's nothing more depressing than a PR rep being forced to look like he's enjoying the game he's been made to play for the past 10 months. He shoulda just let you play it for yourself.

However:

It does have dancing that rivals WoW's.

Wow... That game has a lot of potential, but with only a few characters on each side, I doubt that it will do well. Half the fun of games like Marvel Vs. Capcom comes from all the random characters you can choose. Even Soul Calibur had more characters to choose from . . .

I believe they were showing only 3 on each side to keep some things secret. He said there were somthing like 10 DC characters, so there should be more.

Am I that out of touch with comics these days or do they provide some reason why Superman.. well.. notices.. someone like Sonya kicking him?

You can also do fatalities on Superman. Probably my only beef with this game. It does look cool for a fighting game, though. (Isn't that what fighting games are all about, anyway?)

well, Sonya i can't understand, but most of the MK characters are Magic, and Superman is vulnerable to magic.

plz don't flame, i'm not a comic fiend, this is just what comic fiends keep telling me.

Wizards. Nah, they just blame it on magic. They most likley will create some story about Portals and Shang Tsung wanting to consume Superheroes souls.

Actually, I think that will be it.

Woah Russ, promoting smoking for old people are we? On a family friednly site an' all.

Ok, so am I the only one that remembers Brutalities from UMK3? It's seeming like all the guys that are interviewed for this game are treating us like we don't know what a brutality is. We know about it and they should, ya know, reference UMK3 as the source for it. I know they are just trying to inform newcomers...

UltraBlumpkin:

10 DC Heroes/Villains, 10 MK Characters.

Keeping things all hush hush. They showed The Flash, Superman, Catwoman and Batman for the DC side and Scorpion, Sub Zero, Shang Tsung and Sonya Blade for MK. I've heard whispers of Jax, but I dunno...

Jax, Liu Kang, Kitana, Shazam, The Joker, and Green Lanturn were all announced at the San Diego Comic-Con. Trust me. I was there.

While MK vs. DC will be good fun, I would love for them to work on a strictly 2-D MK like the first three games. I mean look at Street Fighter IV. It is still 2-D but with a major graphics upgrade. And from what played at Comic-Con, it seems to play pretty much like Street Fighter 2.

Maybe we didn't get a good enough taste of it, but since when was punching people repeatedly in the face considered "stylized combat"?

MK Vs DC I've gone to Oz, Oh no its the witch, quick get me some water!
