Mortal Kombat Fatalities: Brutal As Brutal Can Be

Square, X, Square X, Circle, Circle, Triangle. If you're wondering, that was Kung Lao's 7-hit combo in the Mortal Kombat Trilogy. I remember it because I remember urging my fingers to go faster so the damn combo would register.

Even those of us who don't list the fighting genre as one of their favorites has likely spent some time with the MK series. It's just part of being a gamer, isn't it? And in the upcoming reboot, you should probably be aware of all the unlockables and purchase-ables: check out the full list, and then watch the first part of a video that showcases a ton of Fatalities:

That's just...insane. And it's only part 1 of 2. But here's a question: according to the source, you can perform the Fatalities without buying them if you know the correct combo. ...so, does that mean we don't have to hit any special combo in a very short span of time if we purchase the Fatality? Does it just happen? Otherwise, what's the point of buying it?

Just wondering.

Jade's fatality...wins!

I don't want to wash them all yet though, it spoils the surprise when I do get to see them in game.

As far as buying the fatalities, I'd rather learn the combo for them. That's what the whole point of fatalities! You entered an awesome combo and bam! Not easy mode crap where you buy them and see them.

Oh man, Kung Lao split that chick like a piece of lumber. I don't wanna ruin too many of em either, at least the footage isn't that crisp.

I didn't watch the Vid, I'd rather be surprised. I just wonder what Kratos' fatalities will be, hopefully they'll be unnecessarily long button pressing sequences like in GoW.

They're necessary!

NO ONE in gaming history can butcher and rip a chimera's wings, eyes, tongue, you call it like Kratos does.

That stuff requires insane strength and execution.
Stop hating (unless you were being sarcastic)

I'm not one to have a weak stomach, but Kung Lao got me with what he did to Syndel right there. First time that much blood and gore actually made me disgusted. In that case, their mission is completed, lol. That, or being a dad weakens a man's stomach.

I agree with you, Kung Lao obviously doesn't follow the same code as Liu Kang follows. I actually wanted this game, now I think I'm turned off from it cuz of those fatalities alone.

Because the game is made with Unreal engine. Most Unreal games require an install on the PS3 for some reason.

I only watched a couple because I like some others prefer to be surprised. I'm thinking the purchase option is for those of us who don't want to spend 50 hours trying to learn a fatality.

Being able to find them is for those hard core old school MK players who don't want to have anything handed to them.

I think it's a smart move, that way both groups can be satisfied.

No one wants to talk about how we are watching the Xbox version on a Playstation blog?

It's only showing the fatalities, i don't see anything wrong with it. I could see if the article said "The PS3 version looks fantastic!!" and the video was the 360 version then i would be worried.

i was underwhelmed by kratos fatality.
it was kinda, well, tame!
ok, maybe tame is not the best way to describe impaling a sword through someones stomach then ripping it out there head effectively slicing them in half!
but, well, for kratos standards it kinda is.
i mean wheres the head ripping, eye poking, arm ripping, face smashing, arm leg tearing, eye ripping, bone crushing, brutality were use to?
GOW3 had better finishers then this!
i can understand not wanting for him to overshadow the other characters, but this is kratos is that not the point?
you cant have a ferrari but slowing it down because its too fast for the competition.
if your going to do it, you go all out!
not half a$$ed!
oh well, hopefully his other fatality, and stage fatalities are better!

Dude, I thought you said GoW3 had too much emphasis on gore? Why are you implying that GoW3 lacked in that department by saying that "even GoW3" had better gore than this fatality? Just a question about your hypocritical ways.

Btw, IMO its a great fatality that fits with Kratos.
