Dope 11s, Hector.

Posted by altairre

Usually I don't listen to inerviews with developers because I already know if I want to buy the game or not but this interview was pretty awesome. Jeff knows what he's doing and Hector seems like a cood dude too.

Since I'm more of a Street Fighter guy it's great to hear that I can change the control scheme and back to block feels more natural to me anyway. Roster is pretty good so far too and if the storymode is as intersting as it appears to be then it could be one of my favorites this year.

"Of course Flash wouldn't do that in real life, Flash isn't a real person!"

While I can see where he's coming from, that's kind of a jerk thing to say, because that's not the point that's being made in a statement like that at all and it just comes off as "HAHA, NEEEEERDS"

This is a good interview. Curious as pretty much the resident fighting fan what your early impressions of the game thus far? While I'm sure I will be picking it up, does the story mode look to you like it was as fleshed out as in MK and does the combat feel the way it should?

Now I'm interested in this game again, so I'll con a friend into buying it. May my sinister reign live on forever!

That car hit that lady!

Specifically, it hit a cat-lady. It's a fact, people; the Bat-mobile has been confirmed as the greatest pussy-mobile out there. (It had to be done and I just rewatched "Drive" the other day. Don't judge me. Or do, seems right up your alley.)

Also this game looks fucking great. Hell, I'm tempted to fire up MK9 again.

Getting ready for Jeff's 5/5 review.

Looking forward to this, after MK I have absolute faith in NetherRealm and have loved what I've seen of it.

looks cool, just a shame DC characters are generally boring. DC vs marvel would be cool, but that would probably never happen

what a joke

if by boring you mean cool, then yup you're right.

also marvel sucks

That is one fucking stupid hat, even for a drug dealer.

Man, Netherealm does not do female faces right at all.

Posted by Vorbis

Jeffs interviews are the best. Games looking good, but still dislike the stage hazards, makes the game too dependant on stage selection.

As someone who doesn't get much enjoyment from going online and getting my ass kicked, the story mode in Mortal Kombat was rad as hell. It sounds like this is basically that with 100% more Batman, so I'm completely on board.

Posted by MisterCrow

I loved MK9 but I'm not a huge fan of the way their games control, it's just real stiff. This doesn't look to be much different. I wish they'd work on an MK game with a more technically capable studio. Imagine Project Soul working on an MK game, it would be so fluid!

Edited by Dberg
It's going to be super weird playing a fighting game without fatalities when Mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct have been the only fighters I've bothered with, but I really like how this looks and behaves. This looks like those two game series instead of all the screen-filling, special effects and air combo kung fu bullshit that other fighters have.
Posted by laserbolts

This game is looking great so far. Will be getting this for sure. MK9 was awesome.

Wow all the little features like the frames, the tagging combos, and the practice mode stuff sounds really great. I love that Netherealm is pushing fighting games forward like they are. The genre has been dormant for too long. Sure, it's come back and it's good, but so few features are really added.

Agreed. One of my biggest deficiencies as a video game enthusiast is that I've never properly learned to play a fighting game. All that stuff about frames and priorities always been too arcane for me. I've screwed around in Smash Bros and Soul Caliber, but that doesn't really count. This sounds like it might be my best chance yet.

This was a great interview, too!

Posted by DoctorSage

I've never seen Hector in a video before, but he seems like a really cool dude. Would love to see more of him at E3 and similar events.

The thing is you can add as many features as you want, if the game just isn't that great and is kind of boring to watch like Mortal Kombat (2011) was then it's kind of moot.

I don't deny 2011's outing had a lot of interesting stuff for a fighting game but it still fell flat competitively, which is a huge deal. Injustice still looks just as stiff as the last MK and for me that is a dealbreaker. It's just not fluid.

I just don't see anything gripping here, still looks weird and floaty like MK.

Where is Hawkman!?

Edited by Foggen

If somebody makes a Marvel vs DC game I want it to be Capcom, in the MvC mold. If Netherrealms wants to make their own, secondary version, fine.

"The rage".

Man, MK vs. DC was pretty dumb.

Posted by Tesla

I have zero interest in DC stuff (with the exception of Batman) but I want this game because MK9 was so good. Great interview. Lots of information, gameplay, and fresh Jordans.

Posted by MysteriousBob

Ugh, I'd love a decent DC fighter but this looks awful. The animation is so damn stiff and those character designs are horrible. I have faith in the story mode (glad to hear the DCAU voice actors) but I couldn't care less about its jerky-ass gameplay. I had fun with MK9 but I certainly never stuck with it.

Well MK 9 is my favorite fighter since SF II or MK II... both great to play and watch. It plays like MK and if you didn't like that fine, but plenty do and did. All the added features made it the most full featured fighter I've ever played (and the features added were good, unlike, say, the bad "campaign" type modes that have been in Soul Caliber, Tekken, and even older MK games) So not going to agree at all.

At the very least, if you don't like Netherealms fighters, you can hope that your Capcom fighting games or whoever you happen to like, learn from them and add some actually meaningful features into their games next go around. Especially ones that enhance practice modes and teach deeper knowledge of fighting games to players, as that's the single most neglected area in the genre.

Very excited for this.

Great interview! The story mode in MK9 was a delight, glad to hear they are focusing on that again. Looks like a rad game.

Glad Jeff asked about the online compatibility issues in MK9 and that Netherealm is building an architecture to alleviate the problem. Playing online in MK9 became a crap shoot after the DLC released.

For the way the old MK games got shit on by many fighting game fans, NeatherRealm is doing amazing work in creating single player content and options that allow the player to learn the deeper aspects of their games. I'm not really into DC stuff beyond Batman, but they sure know how to craft one hell of a game, so I'm in

Pretty late to the party here but this is an excellent interview. Very good information and a cool vibe throughout. I'm excited to see how this'll turn out. Looks good even to my somewhat MK obsessed eyes.

Could MK9 & INJUSTICE ever come to PC, or will we just continue to hope for a PC port?

Like Bane, will Ed Boon use our hope against us?

Per Ed Boon & En Vogue, "You're Never Gonna Get it."

Now that's some INJUSTICE

This guy's pretty rad.

Also, there is SO MUCH chromatic aberration going on in the shots of Jeff.
