I'm NOT looking forward to this.
Mortal Kombat has sucked since MK4.

If it is good, I'll be soooo happy. But I won't expect anything spectacular.

MK2 was the best IMO.
Give me sickening amount of blood, unlimited fatalities/babalities/animalities/brutalities/friendships, good arcade fun.

DON'T GIVE ME THAT MK KRYPT AND STORYMODE BS!!!
I'm also not fond of the whole 3D world they have going on. A detailed sidescroller would suit me fine.

Yeah I heard they'll making a 3rd movie and totally remake I think. Hope the new game will be better. I would love to see Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter game but I doubt that will happen.

Here's some info on it.

Today, Midway Games (http://www.midway.com/) confirmed what had been rumored for a while: the first next-generation Mortal Kombat title, up until now called "Mortal Kombat 8" by the community, is officially titled Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. As the title suggests, it will be a crossover with the characters and setting of DC Comics (http://www.dccomics.com/). Further information about the game should be forthcoming.

Also theres something to note. There might not be any blood in it. I hope it's not true. They did said they were using U3 for the gore, but without it does explain why DC is allowing there characters in a MK game

I'm looking forward to the game. I enjoyed the last 3D MK. And with the Unreal Engine it will hopefully look incredible.

Although I hope it doesn't look to realistic....

I hope this is better than MK Deception. If it is i'll have to buy it. I can imagine it being good though. 8th time lucky :)

Now I'm not against them making a MK vs DC, but after how excited I've been for a new Mortal Kombat game on 360, they're going to do it this way? They're just forgetting about a brand new MK for right now, and just doing a MK vs DC, no plain old Mortal Kombat game? That pisses me off.

As I've said in the talk back I think this is a great idea. MK was getting kinda tired and I loved the MvC series so fighting SubZero with Batman is in my mind something neat

What in the world... are they trying to be the next Marvel vs. ? This does not bode well... well, heck, if it has achievements I'll get it! :P

I prefer MK vs Street Fighter. I'm sure that'll be a big sell. But vs DC? are they trying to get underage kids to play mortal kombat?

Eh...
I'm still skeptical.
MK VS DC?
I don't know...

I was a huge MK fan til they ruined the series... I probably won't be buying this, but who knows. It could be decent. I just can't imagine Kung Lao VS Green Lantern, though...

There will be blood in it (you can even see blood in the teaser trailer, when the guys get punched and kicked) but they said that there wont be fatalities, per sae. there will be "finisher" moves that you can do to you opponents, but because most, if not all, of the DC universe characters would never do a fatality type move to anyone (you know, being superheros and all) they are just going to have "finisher" moves, that will be toned down versions of fatalities basically. But it'll still have a "decent" amount of blood and gore, just not typical over-the-top MK fashion thats all.

should be a decent fighting at the least... but ihave to wonder with soul caliber 4 looming in the distance also, how much success this will have, great game or not.

for me, the main draw of mortal kombat has always been fatalities and nothing says you've just lost quite like subzero taking your skeleton out of your mouth. with that taken away, it sort of loses its draw and DC's men in tights doesn't make up for it. plus batman would get turned inside-out by every single MK fighter (hell, even stryker).

i hope theres a MVC3 in the works though.
