The trailer looked cool, but Wiz Khalifa? Ugh.

shame it's cg and outsourced which means the designs wont be the same
Commented on 2014-06-02 17:19:11
i somehow doubt the actual game will be anywhere near that fluid. if past games are anything to go on, every attack will have about 3 frames of animation...lol
Commented on 2014-06-02 17:27:55
Why ruin some very nice CGI and a decent trailer with such shite music? That music was like putting salt in your cornflakes ffs.
Commented on 2014-06-02 17:31:13
I wonder what the game engine will be then.
Commented on 2014-06-02 17:50:58
MK with rap music now I seen everything.

WTF were they thinking ??
Commented on 2014-06-02 18:10:42
music does not suit the trailer, bad move! should of used mortal kombat style music, would of enhanced the game trailer by a million miles!
Commented on 2014-06-02 18:11:52
music does not suit the..... oh already said it ;-) sorry

My interest in this game is -20 below sub-zero.
Commented on 2014-06-02 18:34:54
Great CG trailer, would have been miles better with an upbeat or oriental style classic music. When the trailer started, it immediately immersed me in, but when the rap started, it immediately immersed me out.

With inFamous: Second Son's quality in an open world game, is it truly impossible to have a fighting game like that, both graphic and gameplay-wise?

Either way, I wish one day we get to play a fighting game with this quality and gameplay.

Horrible music, sound ruined the trailer completely
Commented on 2014-06-02 19:48:11
Finishing my favourite Sub Zero is unacceptable. :-)
Commented on 2014-06-02 19:57:40
Im disturbed by Boon's lack of respect for Sub Zero and love with Scorpion.
Commented on 2014-06-02 20:06:49 In reply to GangstaNip
I always beat Scorpion playing as Sub Zero.
He is certainly a great character.

could that be ...In-game !?
Commented on 2014-06-02 20:07:34
Great trailer poor choice of music. I love hip hop but it was not suited to this type of game. It need a dark, moody classical type music or even no music, just the sound of the bones cracking would have been better.
Commented on 2014-06-02 20:16:12
Well if this is developed by the same people that did the reboot I have great faith in it being a good game. They did an excellent job with everything on the last game and I loved the animations. This better not have a single track of rap in it though...
Commented on 2014-06-02 20:17:23
lol at the song.
Commented on 2014-06-02 20:34:55
Great... another CG trailer that the real game can never live up to.

Watch this one with the volume off.
Commented on 2014-06-02 20:58:30
Are you sure it's CG?
I don't know why but, apart for some effects, it gave me the impression to be actual in-game graphic... but maybe it's just me (entirely possible :D)

Nothing screams CGi to me. I mean, it's a fighter with 2 characters on screen. They should look like that. i wouldn't be surprised if this was just a fancy fight animation wrapped in the engines actual visuals though. I expect it tbh. It's the fluidity of the movement that makes it look non-legit more so then the graphical quality.
Commented on 2014-06-02 21:03:16
scorpion challenges sub zero!!!!.... to a rap battle. :/

I hope the in game graphics are just as good, if not then it's an other bargain bin game for me.

Yes, the animation is very fluid but maybe they worked a lot to improve it in this new game.
Dreaming costs nothing ;)
Commented on 2014-06-02 21:22:30
It think it was confirmed on Gaf that it is Cgi by one of the people that worked on it.
Commented on 2014-06-02 21:43:43
Music is fine


It would be amazing if they could get the stages looking like this. And abandon health bars too, get rid of the hud.
The video just makes me wish the game looked like this all the time designwise
