    It would be neat to see Kal-el and Darkseid throwdown but not in the plodding slugfest -jittery special moves MK style.

    This game fails to generate any excitement in me.

    Marvel X Capcom 3, please.

    I know that the game sites called this their biggest surprise of E3 and all. But I'm just not too excited for it. If a demo impresses me, then I'll change my mind. Currently, none of the video footage or features have me thinking of trying this.

    I'm so filled with mehness about this game.

    I like Captain Marvel (Shazam) quite a bit, so it's neat that he's in there, but anyone want to explain to me how any of the MK characters can do anything resembling damage to Darkseid or Cap?

    Notice that its the complete MK roster and the MKII roster minus Mileena and Reptile (and Goro/Kintaro but they weren't playable). Kind of smart of them to go back to when the series was best. Rumors initially said Kahn and Darkseid would be a merged character, glad (hopefully) that's not the case.

    I'll buy it, I won't drop $60 on it though.

    I just went to Gamersyde and watched the trailer there again.

    Character models are good, the environments are fantastic.
    The heavy handed combat just sucks.
    My main gripe with MK has been that everyone has the same heavy handed street brawler style (even the Lin Kui (spelling) who are supposed to be analagous to ninja) and now that template is applied to the DC characters.

    Add to that the fact that I now see characters doing things completely opposite of their core concepts -like Superman killing someone with his heat vision and I just checked out.
    They may as well have Batman shoot someone with a .45.

    I can't believe DC signed off on this.

    (The fact that there are 5 responses all day doesn't look too good for Midway, either.)

    First, yeah, the setting is such an odd mashup, I can't really see why either side felt this was a good idea. By the looks of it though, it would seem it plays like the other 3D MK games, and I'm not crazy for those controls at all. Actually, I really haven't liked a MK game since MK2 on the SNES.

    Seriously, though, that game had the same problem of Cammy being able to survive a hit from The Hulk or anyone being able to block Logan's claws but they all still felt like the real deal. Spider-man was nimble, Iron Man a projectile fiend, Psylocke graceful.

    You change the costumes on any of these MK\DC characters and it wouldn't matter.

    They were bad for 2D and they suck for 3D.
    And, I accepted the fact that the digitized film frames kind of "slide" for the special moves back in the late 90s.
    But look at Sonya's kick.
    Is it too much to ask that she actually seem like she is jumping when she goes airborne? Even Batman's smoke pellet animation doesn't seem to match anything else he does.

    For the record:

    The Superheroes don't actually kill anyone (according to interviews). They do non-fatal Brutalities instead of Fatalities. Like, Superman pounds people waist-deep into the floor.

    I want this game for the MK lol factor but will wait til it's on clearance.

    I'm actually excited for this, even though I never really got into any other MK games. I did have the Genesis game which was fun for a little while.

    Last time I cared about an MK game was MK3 but after hearing Jeff Gerstmann talk about it I actually have some interest in this one.

    Yeah, I just watched a video where Boon said that the DC heroes have "Brutalities". I could have sworn I saw Superman frying Sub-zero to a crisp in a video, but apparently I am Guano-type crazy.

    I will say that I do love the MK's series devotion to having a more comedic side to balance the over the top characters and violence. Also the amount of secrets and unlockables are usually respectable. Other then that they need to really rework the controls.

    As for the difference with this and Capcoms vs series, I just think MK as a game with really dark tones featuring murderous fighters, while the more popular DC superheroes are boyscouts in comparison. With Ken and Ryu and their fireball shooting ways, and crazy Blanka and psycho powered Bison, I can see them in the same universe as most marvel characters, with of course having to make tweaks to actually make a balanced fighting game.

    i decided a few months ago ,when i heard about this, that i'd only get it if Johnny Cage was in it. so looks like im not buying it.it just aint a MK game without johnny cage. Robin or Nightwing should've been on it too

    Although it might be a little bias, I know someone who has played the game and said it was awesome. Kind of a mix between Deception and MK2. I'm surprised that Cage isn't in though because he is one of the originals

    Also, I heard that one of Captain Marvel and one of Flash's finishing move was just as cool if not cooler than Joker's headshot
