Yeah, the dude seems like, well, a super-awesome dude. 

Damn, I didn't know he was the voice of Scorpion.

Ed Boon such a cool guy.

There was a time when I thought that I'd never be spending full price on day 01 for a fighting game ever again and then *poof* Street Fighter IV and now this. My $60 will be seeing you next Spring Mr. Boon.

Can't wait for the game.  
Gotta say, there are a LOT of characters I'd love to see again.  Stryker, Smoke, Ermac, Rain...  but show some love to Kenshi as well!  Out of all the new-era MK characters, he is absolutely one of the standouts.

Wow great interview!

Fatality meetings?
Fatality meetings?!
It's nice to hear a dev taking like a normal person for once.

Ed Boom is an awesome person, I'd love to meet him and talk about dismemberment of the human body all day long.

Posted by Deusoma

It's nice to know that all those GET OVER HEREs are being properly rewarded. n_n

Posted by Rockanomics

I wonder if Boon is truly happy having made nothing but MK for so long. It seems like it, and if he is that's freakin' awesome. 
But I wish Jeff would have brought it up.

Ed Boon: No no, we need a LOT more blood than that, and he has to be angrier about ripping his spine out.
Man: Well I don't think so, I think we're already pushing it on the blood on this character, and why does he have to be angry about it? Why can't he just rip it out and be done with it?

Boon is just the freaking man...I am soooooooooo psyched for this game.  I'm glad I've been a die-hard Mortal Kombat lover since the beginning...through EVERYTHING...hehe.

We had discussions about.. you know,  "So what can we do with gore?"

Posted by MisterMollusk

Nice to see Ed Boon. Really looking forward to this next Mortal Kombat.

I'm jealous of the eyebrows.
Loves me some MK, for me it's:
2. Killer Instinct (I still play it, no lie, on Mame)
3. Street Fighter

Did they edit a Brad photobomb in at 3:16? TOASTY!


That was great

Posted by Sarkhan

Ed Boon is always awsome and nice. Gotta say like another 1 said here. Very rare that i shell out money day 1 for fighting games. But SSF4 did it, and now MK will aswell. Cant wait to find out more. Personaly i would love for the animality to return aswell :) 
Btw: Great interview Jeff.
Posted by twardybidon

Great stuff. The Legend interviewing The Legend.

Posted by Peacemaker

2011 is already jam packed with awesome.  great time to be a gamer. 

Posted by gimpysoup

i want to go to a fatality meeting!

Posted by Woodroez

Wish this could have been, like,  40 minutes long. Man.

Posted by Barrock

Awesome interview Jeff. I'm just curious, have they said anything about having a storyline mode or anything like that? I know they want to have a great mutiplayer aspect but I'd love to see a sort of Twisted Metal Black style storyline with character introductions and such.

I remember someone asking him that in an interview when MK vs. DC came out. I don't recall the the site it was at. I think he said he enjoys it due to having vacations between them so it doesn't feel like thats all he does.

game looks great and would love to see Ed Boon on a podcast again 

Posted by damswedon

Following Ed Boon on twitter you get this feeling that after all this time he still absolutely loves what he does and he has never lost faith in the fighting genre.

Posted by Mourne

Ed Boon really is a class act; glad MK is getting back to its roots and garnering some mainstream attention again.

Posted by Chris2KLee

Word, Ed Boon world record holder! GET OVER HERE!

Posted by wolf_blitzer85

That was an awesome interview. Ed Boon is Mortal Kombat.

Posted by DMack

That x-ray thing was in the awful Fight Club game.. game looks crazy though

Posted by Demigonis

Ed Boon is the man.

Posted by animateria

DLC character from the start?
I'm guessing balancing isn't an issue for the development... Then again MK isn't a competitive 2d Fighter so it doesn't really matter I suppose.

Posted by mazik765

Ed Boon is awesome, I am so happy to see him back and making a new MK.

Posted by Toxin066

Ed Boon can conduct an interview.

Ed Boon is just the man.
