        I thought so also. Would be awesome if they’d allow you to cripple your opponent during the fight. If that happens, it should revert to 1 round. (Crippling an opponent should only happen if they are low on health and you have not been touched, kinda like a perfect round, but better.)

      I highly doubt it.

      Actual in-game character models, definitely, just not the effects and rendering. The ice forming on the trees and Sub-Zero’s face right at the end were too good.

      I’d love to be proven wrong, though. 🙂

    I think that’s a combination of in-game and pre-rendered. It also seems that they’ve incorporated the environment interaction they had on Injustice into this, and maybe even a counter-system a la Dead or Alive. That could be pretty freaking cool.

    Ok first off. Music? HORRIBLE. Why on earth would they use hip hop music for this trailer? Makes me feel like i was watching a fight from Afro Ninja (which worked for the anime) Secondly…. As good as it looks…. I think the animations are too cartoony for my liking. It doesn’t look authentic in some sense. Love the graphics though. Looking forward to this game!

    I guess it all depends on whether that was in-game or merely a clever use of CGI. The one thing that’s always annoyed me about NetheRealm is their animation. It’s always too stiff, like you’re watching stop-animation with GI Joe action figures. They did improve with Injustice, though… (although even just a little bit).

    However, when SubZero unleashed his ice, I had a stirring in my nether regions….

    I like the music. I think it suites it along with the lyrical content. This is the only Wiz Khalifa song I like; probably cause it doesn’t have anything to do with weed and he spazzed out switched his cadence and flow, and used a double rhyme scheme. He delivered the energy on this track to match the tone of the game.

    I like it because it’s different; whenever you think of Wiz, Mortal Kombat does not come to mind. It’s different and strangely, it works for me.
