Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Part 2 wasn't bad at all. I enjoyed the Kano/Jax fight, esp. seeing what looked like one of Jax's special moves, and of course the final gruesome punch.

The eps are a bit too short to really immerse the viewer, once you skip past the recap and end with the start of the long credit sequence. But apart from that squibble, I'm enjoying them. Not quite as much as last year's Cage/Baraka trailer, but still good fun.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

They're short and sweet and to the point. I think they do their job brilliantly. The short film trailer was longer I believe because they intended it to be a pitch. These are designed specifically to be short. Can't wait for the Sub-Zero and Scorpion episodes.

Kitana will be in this season. I don't remember about Jade and Meleena.

I hope they appear in the obligatory hot tub scene that all MK movies should have had.

I haven't heard anything about Jade, but Legacy will feature both Kitana and Mileena

I just picked up the new game and it is pretty cool, but very awkward to play because of the fact you have to press and hold a button to block. Going to take a little time to get to used to that again. As a long time fighting game fan I've been playing games like Street Fighter, Marvel vs Capcom 2 and 3 and the SNK ones where you just hold back to block and that feels way more natural.

Kung Lao and Liu Kang would be cool to see in a 2nd season, but we still don't know who else is going to appear this season. I'll wait until its over to make that assessment.

Some of the secondary ninjas like Smoke/Noob Saibot/Ermac would be cool to see though. Although, there are way too many characters in this universe, maybe they shouldn't go beyond the cast of UMK3 before it gets way too convoluted like the game did.
It doesn't sound like you've watched that trailer I linked to, because it more or less features all of the characters whose origin stories Tancheroen will be spotlighting with the remaining 8 episodes of Legacy.

Nah, did not watch it before I posted, but it looks good! Kind of in the vein of Hong Kong movies. Now if somebody can reboot the Street Fighter franchise into something better than what we've got as well. The shorts for those werent nearly as impressive as Rebirth.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

^ I think the key to that is someone who has as passion for "Street Fighter" the way Kevin Tancheroen does for "Mortal Kombat".

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

I can't get into to see the episode yet. I needed to set up a account to get past the age alert, and I apparently misspelled something in my password or name, so I couldn't get back on after I signed off briefly. I'll probably try again sometime in the next couple days.

Why is there an age alert on this one and not the first?

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

What? There was an age alert? I just clicked it and watched it. There were no prompts or anything. There's probably one due to the violent and gore in the episode.

My favorite thing from her is when she shoots the thug with the pistol twisting her hand behind her! That was bad ass. I really want the score to this!

How silly; YouTube blacked out the screen when Kanos' eye got punched out and bounced against the camera. Hope that's temporary and they'll reshow Ep. 2 with restricted age entry.

They didn't do that when I watched it. They must've edited it after it was first uploaded.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Machininima is a website frequented by a huge number of 10 to 14 years olds and their jumpy parents, they dropped the ball by broadcasting Ep. 2 without a proper age restriction, got a flood a complaints, and ruined the clip by imposing some crude censorship.

Also the second episode was too short, with too long a "previously" section. Why just edit the two episodes into a single 18 minute episode, FFS?
