There's no way it can live up to Marvel vs Capcom, I'm sure, especially when I've always preferred Capcom fighters over MK...

But still: FATALITIES AGAINST SUPERMAN YEAHHHH
EDIT: Wait, no fatalities? Shit. Game fails.

Yeah, it's a shame Capcom isn't doing it.

Marvel vs DC vs Capcom = EPIC

More proof Ed Boon doesn't give a rat's ass about his fans.

well you know something, ive kinda grown up and moved beyond the whole uber gore=good game phaze. in retrospect, the MK series has always kind of sucked anyways. im just more excited to have a game where i can legitimately play as batman beating the shit out of superman. they should use his line from "the dark knight returns" everytime batman wins a match against superman.

What? You wouldn't actually be implying that Street Fighter was any BETTER than DC, would you?

Who TOLERATES this ignorance?

speaking of ignorance who bothers with yours?

My ignorance? That's a laugh. Way to take a joke too seriously.

I probably don't follow the fighter genre as closely as you, but I think it's fair to say that Capcom doesn't need to have their nose in every fighting game.

They would have done this along time ago. However, they ran into some road blocks:

...from what I read from the article...it seems Ed Boon didnt try hard enough...it sounded like all he did was make a couple of phone calls to Capcom. But thats just me.

I'll say this again. Capcom doesn't need to have its shit in every fighting game.

Instead of praising (or making fun of) this, you're criticizing the fact that Street Fighter has nothing to do with it? Way to thread-crap.

I think DC's universe of characters has gone too long without a FUN game, so let's hope they don't poo it up. I don't think they will, though, if they use the people in charge of MK: DA and MK: D to make it. I liked those games a lot.

I think that it'll be a good game. It'll be the next Shaq-Fu.

I can sleep better knowing that there was no MK vs SF. I don't see any plausible way to mesh those two series together since the fighting engines are just too vastly different. If they did try it, odds are they'd favor one engine over the other, or try to come up with something totally new that would feel foreign to both games.

Back on topic, I don't see this one working out at all. No fatalities? Over-the-top violence =/= good game, but it's a hallmark of the MK series, and if they took it away then they're taking away the very element that put MK on the map in the first place.

P.S. I take it everyone is gonna be decked out in Kryptonite gloves when they take on Superman.

Apparently, Superman will be weaker and the human characters will be stronger due to magic.

No, that's not sarcasm.

Also, for those who haven't seen or read them yet, here's a preview for the game:

A video interview with Ed Boon and the official trailer:

It's definitely going to be very different from any MK before it.

Though I do think this is a bad idea, I'm rather eager to play it.

Supes being weak to magic makes sense, which is probably the only thing this game will get right. In theory, whoever picks Batman should win every fight, for the simple fact that he's the g-d d@mned Batman, and he has infinite haxs.

But yeah, there's now DC fighter that will end up being worse than the Justice League fighter that dropped in the mid 90s. Awesome.

I'm gonna give this game a chance. I haven't played Armageddon, but Deadly Alliance and Deception were awesome, so I can't see how they'd screw it up that badly.

But the question remains: Will the Bat have prep-time?

Four things, that I've already told most of you.

1. Booster Gold must be in this game.

2. Lobo must be in this game.

3. Green Lantern MUST be Kyle Raynor.

4. Aquaman can be in the game only as a Dan Hibiki-esque joke character.

That is all.

None of these will be in the game.

But I totally agree with Lobo.

Green Lantern WILL be John Stewart if only because they'll be strained for ethnic DC characters.

Eh. Wow. I won't purchase this, but I'd like to see it succeed (though, I obviously, as a realist, doubt that will happen. DC doesn't have enough of a sense of relative scale for its characters to face each other in a fighter).


Back on topic, I don't see this one working out at all. No fatalities? Over-the-top violence =/= good game, but it's a hallmark of the MK series, and if they took it away then they're taking away the very element that put MK on the map in the first place.

The fatalities are the precise thing which could have saved this, if only for the sake of novelty. Imagine the wonder twins beheading Superman.

Probably not, which is unforunate. I also doubt he'll havr "MY PARENTS ARE DEAD" rage.

1) DEAR GOD YES!
2) YES!
3) That's Rayner. And it will be Hal or John. Although Ion or Kyle-Parallax would be awesome. Which is why it won't happen.
4) He needs to dance like in those old adult swim commericals...

None of these will be in the game.

But I totally agree with Lobo.

Green Lantern WILL be John Stewart if only because they'll be strained for ethnic DC characters.

Sad truth is sad. They also have Cyborg, Vixen, Black Lightning, and.....okay so 4.

Hahahahhahaha

Yeah....pretty much.

I'm super excited for this game in a "I'm about to see a guy get hit by a car, and I'm excited" kinda way.

If it's a DC game, it better have the Green Arrow. Only non-batman character I enjoy from DC.

I agree with SW Batman = auto-win, why? Because he's the god damned Batman, that's why.

NOW WHERE'S MY MARVEL VS DC?
