Looks awesome :D I'm so happy to see the return of the around the world roundhouse kick

#3 Posted by bibamatt (1086 posts) -

Wowowowowee!

#4 Posted by EvilDingo (589 posts) -

Weee.... I so excited that he has his signature "force ball" and teleport roundhouse.  

At the beginning of the trailer I was getting bummed because he looked he was just a character with rehashed moves (Noob's teleport throw and Sektors teleport punch) ... But I ended up getting excited overall when his signature moves was shown.
 
That force ball has to have crazy combo-potential... I suck at combos, so I'm SO gonna hate coming up against Rain-players online :-)

July 19 :)
 
Rain looks like he plays better than I initially thought, which is good... I still say lime and blueberry will be Sonya and Jax klassic costumes.

Yeah totallly.
 
Sorry for the shitty link btw :(

Nice, I wish I'd gotten better at fighting games.

He's looking great. But fuck NRS for not revealing the fourth character...

Completely. Still keeping my fingers crossed for Tanya...
 
They didn't reveal the two klassics either, but I'm am 90% certain it will be Jax and Sonya.

Have they fixed the online play yet?

What? Tanya? Why?
 
Why not HAVIK

so would you say the drought is over?

#13 Edited by SoldierG654342 (1680 posts) -

Looks an awful lot like Sektor with a mixup game. Goddamnit, looks like I'm going to end up learning him.  
  
@CptBedlam
: Yeah, kind of. At least on the PS3 things are markedly better.

I want Tanya because she's was always one of my favorites, and when she turned out to be a traitor, that made me like her even more. Very unexpected imo. The b!tch is evil! lol
 
I would be completely satisfied with Havik too.
#15 Posted by Disengage (429 posts) -

Rain's def going to be my new main. I hope he has a klassic alternate.

#16 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

Greatest roundhouse EVER! Not even Chuck Norris has anything on that one!

#17 Posted by Skald (4366 posts) -

I really hope they start enforcing compatibility online. All these cool DLC characters and I can only use them half the time.

Doubt it. If they could do that, they would have by now. If I had to guess, there is probably some limit set by Microsoft about the maximum size and/or frequency of forced updates.

PS3 or Xbox 360?  For the Xbox 360 seems like it plays very well to me, I played more then a 100 matches online and haven't noticed anything unplayable, lag doesn't happen much if you pick opponent with good connection.  Seems to be on par with SSF4's online play IMO.
#20 Posted by D_W (1071 posts) -

Woah. It looks like that force ball is controllable. That's pretty damned awesome.

I heard the Klassics reveal is on its way this week (and I agree, it has to be Jax and Sonya). Hopefully they reveal the 4th then.

Yes! More stupid ninjas!

I am not even being sarcastic!

Also here's the trailer embedded, TC should edit it into his original post when he has the chance.

#23 Posted by august (3811 posts) -

Looks like this guy stole Raiden's thunder.

#24 Posted by Pibo47 (3166 posts) -

HOLY SHIT. His rain ball thingy, can you control that?!?! Man, i loved these first 2 dlc fighters...but rain looks fucking awesome!

#25 Posted by GregIsRad (161 posts) -

That around the world kick is hilarious. 
 
And that first fatality shown...WTF

#26 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5117 posts) -

It's raining Rain, Hallelujah!

#27 Posted by EmuLeader (556 posts) -

That has to be one of the best fatalities i've seen. Plus that combo at the end was pretty ridiculous. I'd love to see the damage percent on that one

#28 Posted by HistoryInRust (6214 posts) -

I FUCKING LOVE THAT HE HAS:

A) THE LOOPING ROUNDHOUSE

B) THAT VICTORY POSE.

#29 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

Well technically, he hasn't arrived yet. This is more like a weather forecast.

#30 Posted by Floppypants (798 posts) -

Yeah, they'll get my $5 for Rain. I wish to kick people so hard that they circumnavigate the globe.

#31 Posted by MachoFantastico (4293 posts) -

Looks awesome! Have to say I've been loving what NetherRealm have done with DLC (and free costume packs).

#32 Posted by FritzDude (2216 posts) -

Anyone excited about rain is beyond me.

#33 Posted by OneManX (1661 posts) -

3 for 3

Yeah, both of those are probably my favorite too! The around the world kick and the victory pose! I'm not a fan of the the second fatality though his first one looked ok.

@TheGreatGuero: Haha, good one.

"There is no bad weather, there's only bad clothes!"

Think Rain might be taking issue with that philosophy, that guy seems to be cascading malice. I think he looks utterly fantastic, they really captured him as an element, which is something I don't feen they've necessarily done for some of the other characters. I'm willing to take bets on that his lightning attack is named "Cloudburst".

Though I really do hope that his water-teleport won't work in the same way as Sektors, or we've definitely got an overpowered character on our hands. This bugger seems to have at least 4 different specials that would allow him to start or continue a juggle.

#36 Posted by JackSukeru (5816 posts) -

Really like his look, was hoping that they would keep his facemask like it was in Armageddon while covering the rest of his head with the usual ninja head-thingie.

My only gripe with the DLC characters so far is that they don't have any spoken lines in their intro's or Outro's. It's all generic "hee"'s and "haa"'s.

Yes, his projectile was controlable back in MK Trilogy.

From the looks of it, he might actually only teleport to the enemy when its an EX version of it.  Also, everytime it was displayed in the trailer, the enemy went flying straight to the ground, so looks like it won't be able to start or continue juggles.  :]

Damn, they are really pouring on the cheese with this one. 

#40 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

It started raining when I played the video.
 
I have a thing for purple clad ninja's, might download this.

He kinda has the same mask... still the veil covering the mouth but the rest is a hood versus a crown. I like this better, because he has ugly hair, like Smoke's hair, cover that up please lol

I kinda phrased that poorly. What I meant was that they did exactly what I was hoping them to do; Kept his mask as a veil while covering his head with that rubbery ninja goodness.

In short I agree with you.

#43 Posted by rbysjti (354 posts) -

I don't like his pose after turning around at the start of the fight. It just wasn't manly. 
 
But i like his rain bubble a lot. I think, i'll stop using Nightwolf because Rain has better lightning strikes.

#44 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

Rain's Wallpaper

Rain Wallpaper
Out tomorrow! :)

But he's a giant walking Prince reference! How can he not be manly?

Who wants to bet his babality has something to do with a little red Corvette?

#47 Posted by Simmse (135 posts) -

I live in England and let me tell you old chap, Rain has been here for a while.

#50 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2712 posts) -

Really can't wait for this. 
I've always loved Rain.
