Wow, this looks awesome! Can't wait to watch this when I get home.

#8 Posted by Zaccheus (1805 posts) -

There is some comedy in the fatalities but when I saw Kitana being ripped in two by Noob the first time I felt pretty bad...

#9 Posted by EthanML (459 posts) -

That was awesome. 

#10 Posted by Heti (54 posts) -

Haha the part where all the body sections slowly drift apart.

#11 Posted by TehJedicake (900 posts) -

Is it just me or is that fuckin awesome how they do this

#12 Edited by Sanj (2534 posts) -

I've come to the sudden hilarious and slightly disturbing realisation that those mocap blokes probably did the capture for all the characters...

Saw this yesterday on Facebook or Twitter, I think, but this is a really cool video. Also,

Would have liked to see the mo-cap session for Sheeva's second fatality.

I wonder how they did noobs fatality...... 

#20 Posted by fox01313 (5089 posts) -

Neat though I'm more curious about the challenges they faced with the babalities as well as seeing some of the outtakes on the fatalities.

Now make a video about the voice acting!

#22 Posted by The_Nubster (2352 posts) -

Very interesting stuff. I always love to get a look behind the scenes to see what's happening to make these products what they are. After playing, of course; don't wanna spoil the magic.

Klassic KIller Kombat... ummm wait, what...

#24 Posted by Crono (2706 posts) -

We all enjoy a good laugh and if MK was a stand up routine, it would have killed!

#25 Posted by George_Hukas (1317 posts) -

Meh, I'd rather watch cartel murder videos

#26 Posted by KamikazeCaterpillar (1130 posts) -

Seeing "Video posted by Undeadpool" is kinda cool.

Yes.  I want to hear the "OBEDIZAH!"  and "GIMME YO MONAY" and other such great pieces.
#30 Posted by Bestostero (2750 posts) -

I like these behind the scenes look.

It's ok the said "no homo" before they did that.
#32 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

They should show off some of the bloopers, but still put it in game, so we see the game characters falling over and shit, instead of the mocap dudes. That would be pretty cool :p 

#33 Posted by Gaff (1874 posts) -

This answers a lot of questions, but I still have one burning question: 
After Sonya's first fatality, did it really have to look like she had a gigantic menstrual stain?

#34 Posted by laserbolts (5365 posts) -
This was an awesome video. Man I wish I made video games.
#35 Posted by Xpgamer7 (2398 posts) -

I love seeing this behind the scenes and tech stuff.

"just let go and hit my clavs"

#37 Posted by Parsnip (1116 posts) -

It's cool that Carlos Pesina is still working on MK.

#38 Posted by CitizenJP (1047 posts) -

Lol cool vid.

#39 Edited by jillsandwich (760 posts) -
 Is Ed Boon directing those dudes mo-capping the Netherrealm stage fatality? That's fucking great. 
 And Carlos Pesina is still doing performance work for the fighters? What a fuckin' champ!
Oh, also:

That is really really cool, I love videos like this. 
#41 Posted by Pewp (12 posts) -

I wish the Krypt was filled with this kind of stuff.

#42 Posted by DeathByWaffle (652 posts) -

Hit my clavs, bro

#43 Posted by StriderNo9 (1149 posts) -

Very interesting to see that.

#44 Edited by MeatSim (10938 posts) -

I like the stick figure fatality concept art.

#45 Edited by Agent47 (1892 posts) -
@Pewp: Yes my exact thoughts.But for now I will just check out the motionless koncept art.
#46 Posted by Kushieda (46 posts) -

Good to see them take it back to working on clavicles.

#47 Posted by needforswede (492 posts) -

#48 Posted by Pop (2650 posts) -
