Mortal Kombat thread

Post  mrcrowley24 on Mon Aug 30, 2010 11:45 pm



Any MK fans here? I see that you have Noob Saibot image on your name profile Mj, are u a fan?

I love Mortal Kombat. I remember spending my pocket money (a whole $2!) on MK2 arcade machine at my local shopping centre back in the day.
Then I got a snes and got them all. I thought MK4 was alright, but MK struggled as a result of MK mythologies and special forces. Then Deadly Alliance came out on the last generation consoles. It had an interesting storyline, new characters and differing fighting styles. Its sequels were also good, but unfortunately Vs DC went PG and was poorly received.

Mortal Kombat 9 comes out next year and looks fantastic. It goes back to the storyline of MK2 (arguably the best MK), with 2D/3D graphics and gory fatalities! Cannot wait.

Here is a preview of the next MK and even if you didnt like the last MK, take a look at it as it may get you excited!

The games are a bit of fun, but I wouldn't call myself a fan.

Yeah bro.. I WAS a huge fan of MK... Played it hardcore up until they turned 3D. Then I slowly died out on it..
NOOB has always been a Dark character i liked.. And he had that Unlimited Combo Cheapy on Ultimate MK haha...

I still play the classics.. MK2 was one of my favourites, and Ultimate MK. I use to own most of them on Megadrive... Still got the Ultimate MK cartridge in my drawer even haha...

Every MK fan must remember this code
A, B, A, C, A, B, B
Ol' the memories

The latest Movie coming out looks pretty cool 2...

Im keen.

I quite likes the Conquest Mode on the later games. Plus the tetris-like game was fun. I will probably get this when it comes out.
Zombie Liu-Kang was the best haha

Yes MK2 was the best! I enojyed Ultimate MK3 as well. I didnt mind the conquest mode in the later games as well Tristo.

The best thing about Deadly Alliance was when they killed off Liu Kang and Shao Khan. Didn't see that coming!!!

Those ads you have been seeing Mj about a new MK movie is in fact a viral campaign that someone is doing to gain support for what his version of the next MK movie should be. At the moment there is no funding for it, but the campaign went quite well so I wouldn't be surprised if they do a go- ahead, especially considering there is a new MK game around the corner.

I liked the original movie, but its sequel MK: Annihilation, was fucking shit.

For fuck's sake, Australia sucks. Early reports has that MK has been rejected for classification. I am tired of this shit. I will import the fucker.


According to reliable retail sources, the much-anticipated fighting game reboot, Mortal Kombat, has been refused classification (RC) by the Australian Classification Board.

Our source, who requested to remain anonymous, received an email stating the game "will not be released in Australia."

It also requested the retail outlet remove all references to the game - signage and display cases - as well as cancel all preorders in Australia.

The email added that the decision might be overturned in the future, but these steps were currently necessary.

Here's the official statement from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment:

The highly anticipated video game Mortal Kombat, published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) in Australia, has been refused classification by the Australian Classification Board and will not release in Australia. We are extremely disappointed that Mortal Kombat, one of the world's oldest and most successful video games franchises, will not be available to mature Australian gamers.

WBIE would not market mature content where it is not appropriate for the audience. We understand that not all content is for every audience, but there is an audience for mature gaming content and it would make more sense to have the R18+ classification in Australia. As a member of the iGEA, WBIE is reviewing all options available at this time.

I buy every game from Playasia except for the big titles (KZ3 etc) because of DLC issues.
Games are literally $45 AUD on the site now because the dollar is so good.

Are the DLC compatibility issues only with US versions? Are UK versions ok? Its just that I would be keen to get MK DLC when it does come out.

As long as we share the same PS Store, it should be ok. I think we have the same store as the Poms.
I buy the Asian version of the games so DLC, promo codes and online passes (fuck EA) don't work.

It has been denied again on appeal. The crux of the issue is the high-def, graphic fatalities. Import for me.

Hmm, could be trouble importing it.

Mortal Kombat won't be available in Australia. You know it, we know, and everyone is still furious. Rightly so, but our views can't prevent Australian Customs and Border Patrol from doing their jobs.

Gamespot contacted a spokesman who issued the following statement; "As Mortal Kombat has been refused classification in Australia it is considered objectionable material. It is therefore a prohibited good, and illegal to import into Australia...Customs and Border Protection works closely with Attorney General’s Department to identify imported games that are banned in Australia. This includes games purchased over the internet from foreign websites. Attorney General’s Department regularly updates Customs and Border Protection about classification decisions on publications, films and computer games, including the reclassification of material, and about different versions of computer games (some of which may be refused classification), and how to identify those versions at the border. This information is then used to assist in identifying and seizing banned versions of games".

And just to put the final nail in the coffin; "Any copies of the games detected at the border, including via international mail, will be seized".

That's going to be your only warning. If caught, you could be issued a fine of up to three times the retail value of the product, or in extreme cases - AU$110,000. The same problems arose during the Left 4 Dead 2 fiasco, so this approach is to be expected. What do you need to know about attaining a copy of Mortal Kombat? You need to be careful, discreet, and lucky. Or else go for a holiday in New Zealand.

Marsta or fuchs, I may have to give you guys some money to get it for me and send it to me.

Nope I reside in hong kong. Only the receiver should get in trouble get in trouble if customs discover the game (I think). The sender can always just give a fake address. Why dont you just get the game the next time your on an overseas trip?

Yeah I have a U.S. account and downloaded it. Its freaking awesome! I love it! Like you said, takes me back to MK2 days. I also did a fatality with scorpion and was great! I will get this title, I don't care what I have to do. Lunithy says he can get it to me, but it won't be before June. I don't know if I can wait that long!
