This is my first Mortal Kombat

So a friend brought over a copy of Mortal Kombat, I maybe got an hour in with it, and played some story - and I'm very hooked. I've read up on all the characters and lore and stuff and, well. Yeah. Hooked is the best way to describe it. 


And I watched the Mortal Kombat rebirth pitch video and that is like 1000 times more awesome to me now. 

So. Now, I think I should jump in with two feet here. I really like fighting games but, I only own MvC2 and all the Tekkens for PS2 - I play a bunch of SFIV - but I really think I should just get it all - the game and fight stick - the latter so I can play the other fighting games I like.

Am I being rational? Or should I play more of my friend's copy of Mortal Kombat before I drop the money on that?

I don't you need a fight stick for Mortal Kombat. Go for it, buy it up.

Absolutely buy this game. I don't know if you'll want a fight stick, but the 360 d-pad sucks, so if you're playing it on that and are willing to spend the extra money, maybe you should get that too. I'm glad you're really digging it. In all honesty, the game seems to cater heavily to the long-time fans of the series, so I wasn't sure how appealing it'd be to newcomers. It's my favorite series and I've been playing it since the original, so for me, this game is totally a dream come true.

yes yes yessss, buy the game! its amazzinngggg!  i think a lot of the good deals are gone now...but Toys R Us has a coupon for $10.00 off the game!!! and i think its an extra bonus because the game is on sale for 49.99 and minus the 10 dollar coupon its 39.99... BUYYYY ITTTT!!!!! not to mention if you buy from ToysRUs...you get the Kitana Klassic Costume!!!  and if you don't want that costume you can give me the code! lol :D

Most of the other places had deals, but that was last week when it was released...not sure if you can find anything better at this point... um... but yeah, definitely get it! 39.99 is A GREAT price for this game, plus you get Kitana's costume (which again, if you dont want, right here! we'll be friends!!! lol)

The nearest Toys R Us is a bit out of the way, but I'll see if I can't get over there sometime. And, for saving me 10 bucks, if I get the game there - you can have a Kitana costume code :3. 


Besides, I won't have a nostalgic sentiment for classic costumes since I'm seeing most of these characters for the first time.

@BulletStorm:  hurray! lol, well whatever you do choose to do, the game is awesome and you should get it even at the full retail price if you cant get to Toys R Us :)
