On a different news, a short and very positive Mortal Kombat 2011 Hands On appeared on GamrReview:
The feeling of playing the new Mortal Kombat is very similar to the feeling I had when first playing Street Fighter IV. It was like I'd travel back in time with a slightly different controller in my hands, and yet there were high-definition graphics before me. Mortal Kombat looks like a very new, very polished fighting game but still plays just like the older Mortal Kombats. The uppercuts, the strange and unnaturally posed flying punches, and the tight-balled flipping jumps harken back to a different time.
I was able to step into the new Mortal Kombat and immediately freeze my enemies with Sub-Zero. I was able to make opponents "get over here" just like I used to with Scorpion. The new Mortal Kombat welcomed me into its bloody, violent bosom like a long lost loved one.
This isn't just a re-hashing of old games, though. While most moves are straight from the older games, the combo system is more robust and the x-ray system that's been shown in screenshots is the reward for great combos. One thing that really jumped out at me is the persistent damage. Throughout the match, the characters will show damage that never goes away. Costumes and masks rip, gashes open up, and blood flows all throughout the match even into victory poses.
Mortal Kombat (2011) will be released on April 19-th for PlayStation 3 and XBox 360. Pre-Order your copy through our Amazon Online Store and receive the classic Reptile costume and Fatality for free and $10 promotional credit (US only). Available in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany.
Thanks to our visitor Darkness Rain for the heads-up on this story.
Happy 9-th Birthday Mortal Kombat Secretsby Gambid on Mar 1, 2011 :: 10
March the 1-st, 2002, this was the day it all started, the day we (back then it was just I) launched Mortal Kombat Secrets a website project dedicated to one of the greatest Fighting Games franchises in history, Mortal Kombat. Now, 9 years later Mortal Kombat Secrets is proud to be one of the most informative Mortal Kombat websites with a massive amount of followers and thousands of visitors every day.
Since it's creation, Mortal Kombat Secrets has covered the release of 5 major Mortal Kombat titles, including Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe and is currently covering the development of Mortal Kombat 9 and Mortal Kombat: Digital Series. We had the chance of a couple of interviews with members of the development team and even visited Leipzig Germany to cover Games Convention 2008. All of this we did out of love for the franchise and you, our visitors.
Currently we are one of the richest Mortal Kombat fan sites out there and expand our content all the time in all possible directions.
But, what did we managed to do during the last one year:
- We completed the migration of the site to it's version 3.5 and started migrating to the new site engine, currently used by almost 50% of the website.
- We created several new sections, including sections for the upcoming Mortal Kombat 9 (2011), Mortal Kombat: Digital Series
- We massively expanded the Mortal Kombat Trilogy and the Kombat Kolumns sections
- We modified the look of our site and message board, in order to bring more darkness to it, a step positively welcomed by a lot of you, for which we would like to thank you.
- We created a Facebook Fan Page and a Twitter account for the site
The work on the website continues as we prepare for the release of Mortal Kombat 9. We also currently work on several other things that we hope you will enjoy.
I would also like to say "Thanks" to all of our past and current staff members for their dedication and hard work on Mortal Kombat Secrets and also to you, our visitors for your continued support.
Happy 9-th Birthday Mortal Kombat Secrets!!!
