Who the hell thought mumble rap was a good idea for a music track to play over a trailer for Mortal Kombat? MK has always needed either some sort of epic orchestral thing making you think of a battlefield, or some other genre that gets you pumped and makes you want to kick some ass.

This... just makes me want to slap the marbles out of someone's mouth and tell them to speak up.


Or perhaps

Just cause it's old doesn't mean you can't keep using it forever.
That is the MK sound. its brill!

modern MK's just don't have that MK feel like the used to have... the thing that made them so great. I think its time they do an MK with teh same kind of graphics that MK,MK2,MK3U were all made using. Imagine that shit in 4k with modern animations and gore? That'd be insta buy for me ... and i've not played a beat'em-up since those days (though if i'd have had an XBONE i would have got KI2016 even though the dpads suck balls and i'd hate using them).

So, not one second of real game-play footage and utter shit music. Great!

Yea music aside (which seems to have everyone hung up) they didn't show any gameplay. I am not liking this trend. Already game demos have died away, but now trailers don't show gameplay either. Why don't they just go straight to "hey new mortal kombat 11 game coming out, buy it!!".

I, for one, prefer music that calls me a shit taco when I watch my MK trailers.

Any other music would make this better. Hell some old school Wu-Tang Clan would be 1000X better than whatever garbage track they picked for the trailer.
Dude, a Wu-Tang MK title would sell half a billion copies!

You act like this is anything new. Games have been using cinematics in trailers, especially launch trailers, over gameplay for well over a decade. Its not a new trend at all, especially for the AAA game space.

"Preorder for Shao Kahn" what a dick move... XD
Its WB Games. Their logo should just be a giant dick because that is exactly what that company is.

Almost all marketing departments for games do CGI exclusively now. It's pathetic. I want to see what the game actually looks like, not some garbage CGI video someone whipped up.

This thread needs more old white dudes saying the music sucked.
I listen to great music from many different genres. Someone reading idiocracy simple words/sentences over a very dull repetitive beat that has zero to do with MK's theme certainly doesn't meet my threshold for good music. Especially since MK has always had iconic music fit for it.

Ah yes, because anyone who doesn't like low energy mumblerap must be an "old white dude".

"you want a metal track, damn old white guy"
"you want a hip-hop track, damn old white guy"
"you want a rap track, damn old white guy"
"you want some electronic music, damn old white guy"

How about, people just want different(and better) music and you don't need to be a racist piece of shit?

I don't know if it's nostalgia talking, but I seem to remember that song sounded quite a bit different (and better) in the actual movie.
Everything in the 80's was only better in the 80's.
I watch 80's stuff sometimes and pretty much none of it was nearly as awesome as I remember. At the time though...F'N AWESOME!

You're right, however if I'm going to be called an "old white dude" by a racist piece of shit, I'd prefer to at least make the correction. Sorry, I just don't like racist people.

If acknowledging that older white dudes are less likely to like the type of music in the trailer makes me a racist piece of shit, guess I am.

You're guilty of the same thing he is though. He interjected race into a comment where it wasn't necessary. You brought your race into the conversation as some kind of a rebuttal/rebuke/something when it wasn't necessary.
What's different?

Personally, I didn't see his original comment as racist. I saw it as a bit funny. I prefer to view comments like that as jokes unless I know there is something more nefarious behind it.
You seem to have chosen to see the original comment as racist. Maybe you're right. If you're wrong though, you just threw out insults and disparaged a mans character because of how you interpreted his comment. Not the actual comment.

Thank you. It was intended to be tongue in cheek, nothing more.

this is the same that they did for MKX. First announcement trailer was Scorpion and subzero fighting in a forest. Second trailer that came out showed some gameplay. this trailer basically told you gameplay will be shown next month.

That crappy music completely killed the vibe of the trailer. If they were going that route, the song should’ve at least had some energy to it ... and at least made an attempt to sync the music to the action. It sounded like it was randomly being played in the background on someone’s radio or something.

The difference, since apparently it's not obvious... is one was an assumption about other people, the other was not.

I mean really, you're trying to defend racism?

How pathetic are you?
Be a victim somewhere else.
This is what you sound like...
