Today this local game store posted on Facebook a somewhat common question, asking simply who are you going to take into Mortal Kombat first? I just looked, and unless I missed it, that hasn't been asked here yet (only who are your favorite characters and who you hope to see in the game). How is that possible?! :P

Anywoo.... so, now that we pretty much have the complete roster, who are you using first?

Me? Eventually I'll play everyone at least once, but to start, it's all about Sub-Zero!!!

EDIT: And I wanted to add everyone, but unfortunately, there's a limit of 10 options. :( Hopefully I picked the nine most likely to be chosen. For those who want the list of other characters without having to look them up: Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sindel, Ermac, Reptile, Johnny Cage, Jade, Nightwolf, Sonya Blade, Jax, Kano, Stryker, Shang Tsung, Baraka, Raiden and Sheeva (others require unlocking).

Scorpion. I've always started off any new MK I can with him. He's been my favorite character in the series for years!

Of course. :) And don't know if you noticed, but the colors.... she's possibly the only one whose color goes with her (will have to wait for someone to vote for Sektor to see how much his matches as well). Wish I had known in advance what colors were for what slot. I'd have matched up SZ/blue and Scorpion/yellow for sure. :)

I voted for Sektor because I played as him sooooo many matches back in the day, he was my favorite since he was introduced. However, Ermac and Reptile look so damn cool I might have to go with one if them. I've always liked both of them anyways.

I voted for Smoke. Cyborg Smoke was always my favorite in the originals. Ermac was my favorite in the newer games though.

I have the demo on PS3 though, so I probably should say Scorpion, since he's who I tried first. All of them play great in the demo though. Very different feel to each of them.

Can't wait til Tuesday!

That's what I love about this particular poll.... it makes you chose. You only get your first time once. :P

Nah, demo doesn't count. :P The game only recently went Gold, so things may have changed.

To be honest, I think I'm playing the story mode right away. So if the story is like, they choose a character for you and you play as that person for a chapter or whatever, then that's who I will be.

Arcade/online mode however, definitely be using Smoke. Ermac after. :)

Cage is the first character you play as in story mode... just a heads up...

my pick is Scorpion btw (for vs or whatever)

Yeah, in hindsight, that's kind of why I'm sort of glad we're not getting the demo until sometime after the release. When asked what you're going to do first when you get it, my answer was always "It depends on if we get a demo." With a demo, I'd have gotten just needing to play out of my system, and gone straight into the story or Challenge Tower. However, now, I got to get the fighting out. And in the process of doing so, earn koins I wouldn't have been getting in the demo (I'm assuming anyway). Koins that early on I may have wished I had gotten. Now I don't have to worry about it. :)

Sub Zero for me :) Always been my main character.... wonder if I still remember the fatalities! lol

TEBellant
04-13-2011, 07:50 AM
The reason I love this game so much is that I had like 2-3 characters I loved to play with every game haha.

FOr MK9 I think Im gonna go with my MK3 and MK:Deception Fav's Stryker and Ermac. They just both look awesome this game and insanely awesome moves.

shazo
04-13-2011, 09:25 AM
Going with subzero. I want to see how his story goes with what they did. Also I keep telling myself that is how you unlock the one hidden character.

TAI JASON
04-13-2011, 10:00 AM
Sub Zero for an easy beginning. Freezing me through the story mode in hard is always a good choice.

04-13-2011, 10:26 AM
Kabal is my favorite.:rock

04-13-2011, 10:30 AM
Kitana will be my first pick!

04-13-2011, 10:35 AM
I'll first try Scorpion in order to discover how to play.

lich123
04-13-2011, 01:39 PM

Sektor, first character I picked and loved in MK3. Sticking with it!

Sub-Zero, no doubt, my all time favourite.

grimlock444
04-13-2011, 07:23 PM
Most likely Scorpion

Thodoris
04-13-2011, 08:13 PM
I'll go with Shang Tsung!!

drewbird
04-13-2011, 08:28 PM
SUB-ZERO!!!! but if it has a tag team element wont u have to use 2 characters??? well in any case 1st Sub-zero and 2nd Noob

Drucifer82
04-13-2011, 09:45 PM
Sub Zero is my number one, but I'm definitely going to get some use out of Scorpion since I'm getting the Klassic Scorpion content.

04-13-2011, 10:21 PM
I Think Scorpion for me.

I think most people pick Sub-Zeero or Scorpion just because they're moves are synonymous with Mortal Kombat and they're fairly easy to get used to get used to & are mostly well known & easily remembered or Similar moves from Previous MKs.

I am Really interested in Noob's new Moves & Smoke's overhaul.

I was actually very indifferent to Sub Zero until Deception. Prior to that I was more inclined to use other characters such as Scorpion, Raiden, Baraka, Noob, Rain, Ermac, etc. Scorpion's gameplay after Deception was real choppy to me, so I stopped using him. Since this is giving a nod to the old school, I may very well start using him again.

I still intend to use these other characters and I would concur that I am excited to see Smoke and Noob's new moves and overhaul. I was actually getting tired of seeing Smoke as a bot.

04-13-2011, 10:37 PM
I'd use Scorpion since he has been my favorite since 93, and plus I never get tired of hearing "GET OVER HERE!". The only other two that I think I'd consider as using first is Raiden and Sub Zero. Then again whether it is grappling your enemy, freezing them to death, or bbq them with thunder it's all fun to me.

Just got to say, 58 votes (and 24 hours) in, and it's kind of sad to see Cyrax, Kung Lao, Sindel, Jade, Nightwolf, Sonya, Kano and Sheeva haven't gotten ANY love yet. :( But as I said, this is just for the first character, and you only get your first once. :) And they do still have time. :)

In the original games I never used any characters but the ninjas, so I plan to start with people I never tried. Baraka, Kabal, Stryker are the ones I'm most interested in.

I voted scorpion, but to be honest im still not 100% sure who i'll use first

Too many sub zeros. Why? Someone please explain to me. I think he is lame.
Has has ice. Scorpion at leats got Fire and spear and GET OVER HERE.
Why

jswartz0181
04-14-2011, 08:42 PM
Because more people like SZ (I've yet to see a poll where more people like Scorpion over SZ). I for one don't care for Scorpion (I'll still play him obviously, but only once or twice in all likelihood). I mean, he's yellow. I HATE the color yellow! Also not a fan of "Get over here!" It gets annoying very quick. Nor am I one of those guys who thinks something with fire is automatically awesome. In fact, often it's the other way around.

Yeah, I figured some people would have chosen him, thus why I included him in the nine options. Of course, he's not the only one not getting any mentions; just the only one of the non-"Other" names. I feel worse about Kano and Sonya not getting any love yet. I mean, they were MK1 characters! Surely someone's going to want to play them first! :) But hey..... they (and everyone else) still has plenty of time to get at least one vote. :P

On http://www.gamespot.com/shows/now-playing/?event=now_playing_mortal_kombat20110414 they're showing live gameplay, and unless it's specific to the AI, you can in fact morph into anyone (presumably anyway). The AI morphed into Kano despite playing against Smoke.

damn really? was it a tag match by any chance? maybe kano was off screen? i dunno i could have sworn during that live gameplay stream the other day, the devs said shang could only morph into his opponent... maybe i heard wrong

either way *shrug*

No, it was in regular Arcade mode (they also showed Kintaro gameplay after ST was defeated); they hadn't gotten to Tag Arcade yet. But as I said, who knows. Maybe it's something unique to the AI in Arcade or something.

EDIT: Sure enough, over on http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/961032-mortal-kombat/58802481 they're saying it is in fact only the boss version.

Scorpion is definitely my best fighter, since I played him to death in the ps3 demo. I have basic kombos (see what I did there!) with Smoke. I want to learn Noob Saibot and Jax a little more. I am starting to like Jax's fighting style after playing with him a bit in the story mode. I need to practice a lot more with Noob Saibot. So my main will be Scorpion, my backup is Smoke, and I want to get better with Jax and Noob Saibot.
