Dan, your ignorance and especially your arrogance are extremely off-putting. You do realise that the vast majority of people in the world are not Americans, do not speak American English (or any English) and that all things American is not some benchmark of "real" against which all other things are measured, right? You do understand that don't you? Jesus christ.

You do know what jokes are, yes? Dan's been playing up the "stereotypical American" persona for years. You don't need to like his shtick, of course, but a shtick is exactly what it is. Nothing he said in this QL came across as anything more than ribbing.

Now how do I hit post on this here 'puter? These dang ol' hamburger wrappers is coverin' my typin' board! Mebbe if I jes' shoot the dang ol' thing...

@dberg: Yeah, I can definitely see why people are apprehensive (Dairou... Taven... Mavado... woof).

On the other hand... Ninja cowboy! :P

Tangent: One thing I hope they do is a bigger, more varied Krypt. I miss the silly videos and such. Also, maybe disable the Kombat Krypt Koin Kounter after you've unlocked everything. I have SO MANY KOINS in MK9!

I'm glad they're not shying away from a bunch of new characters. Yeah, most non-classic MK characters historically kind of suck, but this batch looks interesting. Erron Black (cowboy ninja! COWBOY NINJA!) and Ferra/Torr in particular.

They look too generic to me, though hopefully they have personalities that make them memorable. Like Cassie Cage, she's got all of Johnny's sass and even wears his stupid sunglasses in one stance.

To be fair, half of the classic characters would seem pretty generic if they were new. Imagine if Liu Kang were a new character, for instance. Would anybody give a damn about a barely-avoiding-a-lawsuit Bruce Lee clone?

Oof... I know part of it is Brad losing focus while playing, but this does not look like a great bit of DLC. I've only played a bit of Lord of the Hunt, but I like it so far. This one just seems a bit bland and frustrating.

Rated M for Mgive it, already!

Mein gott, I have to play this game. It is just so wonderfully dumb. I could play around with the slippy fluid all day.

I'd love to see an actual GOOD version of this, however. The concept of The Omen: The Game isn't without promise. But this is more Gory Goat Simulator than anything. (which in a way is pretty high praise)

Holy shit, Game of War... is there an actual game hidden somewhere underneath all of those storefronts and timer bars? I thought I saw something vaguely resembling a town, but that may have just been a store to buy more timer bars that count down until you can buy more stores to buy timers from. I'm surprised that the borders weren't filled with ads telling Drew and Jeff about one weird trick for meeting hot local singles in their area.

And, of course, the fake timer rolling over, which I can't believe still works on anybody after decades of "Call in the next 5 seconds and receive TWO Salad Shooters, a Thighmaster, seven Deal-A-Meals, an Eggstractor, and a truckful of Snuggies!".
