I bought this game from gamestop used after spending like 6 hours looking for it in town. I was so excited. I took it homea nd started playing it, and then realized, fuck I am playing a console game. I then turned it off after about 4 hours and played something on my PC. Unfortunately I Haven't played it since that moment. This was years ago. I really wanted to like the game.

The letterbox is the reason I won't play this game, because I heard that if you remove it it doesn't actually remove it ... it just crops the screen to what is currently there.

THey lost a sale because this piece of shit design decision. Call it what you will, but it is a piece of shit design decision to a lot of players.

This student is really being uncareless if he thinks they won't find out who he was. A guy went to federal prison for making a post on 4chan. I wonder if he will be found considering it was an e-mail.

makes you think

There is ALMOST nothing funnier than watching the giant bomb fellas playing gang beasts. Every single time I laugh endlessly when they fire it up. There was a really super epic amazing battle at the ferris wheel map that I seriously watched 20 times it made me laugh so hard. This game is the best thing and unfortunately local multiplayer sucks but this game would NOT be fun online hearing the reaction of people and seeing them escape as you chase them and go COME BACK HERE!!! and punch them into a machine.

I hope they don't change too much. I don't like double fine's art style in any of their games so I have a feeling they are going to ruin it with their style. Leave it the way it is. More content. More bugs!

The tragedy we experienced today was given a new lease on life. RIP Robin Williams and amazing to see John Romero going back to his roots. I'm sorry but Doom and Quake are still hands down the best two video games on Earth. It is debatable if Quake 3 is better than Quake but Quake had Team Fortress and nothing was better than QuakeWorld Team Fortress (the TF2 babies have no idea what they missed!) and the best most skilled Death Match made. Rocket Arena for Quake 3 is second to Team Fortress for QuakeWorld.

This man and his team have made video games the way they are. Daikatana was a game and Ion Storm was a company and that is in the past, as is his legacy at ID Software.

Great news!!! Please be Quake 3 Arena remade in 2014. Just like include everything we haven't seen in the past decade+ for amazing gameplay/shooting/Quake.

Awesome! I watched EVO live to see killer instinct and it had me cheering and shouting like I was watching some MMA. I fucking LOVE killer instinct and almost want to buy an xbox (almost!) just to play it.

I wish they would put Killer Instinct on the computer. I tried to enjoy SF I really did but I just don't like the visual style (I had a super nintendo and street fighter 2 back in 1992 and have played virtually every SF game).

It really needs not be said but computer gaming is the past, the present, and the future. It will always be the best way to play video games and I'm sorry I work 10 hour shifts and spend the rest of my time at home in front of a computer I don't have time to pull out a mobile device which looks worse and is a strain to play when I have better controls and superior graphics on a larger monitor with the sharpest fidelity. It is a no-brainer. I'm glad people have the means to play mobile games on long commutes and such in large cities (I'm in Las Vegas) who benefit from them but if you have a good PC you will never miss any other form of gaming.

I don't get this. Giant bomb is my favorite site and I have learned to like every editor (I used to abhor Patrick or Alex on quick looks, now I have learned to accept and enjoy all people's input). What I do not understand is the consistent needling to state that this is not a relevant franchise in the year 2014, or additionally what was heard before was "why not a different IP?". I don't know if Patrick or any of the giant bomb crew were playing first person shooters during their golden age (think Blake Stone/Wolf 3d-Quake 3) but there is NOTHING we as gamers who lived through this era want to see more than something like Wolfenstein come back to the public eye and shown to be a very interesting IP still. I didn't even bother commenting when those idiots (not giant bomb, some people on twitter/blogs) were like "look how far we came from games" and "well we haven't came far at all" because that is just complete nonsense. This game looks beautiful, plays wonderfully and has been a pretty fun series since it was released back in the early 90s. I can't wait for the new Doom but all of this hyperbole about "oh jeez why Wolfenstein again?" needs to stop because it is an incredibly relevant franchise. Oh, sorry, Zelda came out when and in 2015 we are getting another Zelda? Do you understand how silly the comparison of Wolfenstein 2014 to the original sounds when thinking about how we continue to allow more boring franchises (sorry Zelda is an awful IP) continue to cater to fans and not even push any new boundaries or create exciting new concepts.

We had an arcade in Montana called Little Big Man pizza in Montana where I lived as a kid and I probably sunk $500+ of my parents gambling money (it was also a hot spot for gambling in that city) into their UMK 3 cabinet. I won a few MK 2 tournaments as well at bowling alleys. As a kid I probably made at least a thousand dollars ($250 for beating 3 people in a "tournament" was pretty sweet as a 10 year old) playing Mortal Kombat. I was unstoppable. UMK 3 was definitely the "best" Mortal Kombat game. Dat run button .... and then a 7 hit combo that throws them across the screen is really one of the most satisfying things I remember from arcade gaming. UMK 3 sub zero although he looked like a gimp was the BEST character out of virtually every single MK game. I have MK 9 on my PS 3 and my PC (I haven't plugged in my PS 3 or Xbox 360 for over 8 months) and don't really like them anywhere near as much as old mortal kombats.

Anyways thats my story about mortal kombat hope you enjoyed it peace.
