Well you just gotta love that. Though, how much Violence does an M rating allow? For us, over the top gore will be classified as MA15+ (Australian). I'm not sure if an M for you Americans is MA15+ for us.

I removed your comment Tim, lets keep things civil please. You can have your opinion on other sites, but keep it to yourself. We're here to work together with the community.

Yeah thats right, bring on the first topless female MK character who rips people apart, chainsaws them in half and makes their head splatter...lol

Today we've got the first confirmation of the assumption that <a href="http://www.trmk.org/games/mortal_kombat_9/">Mortal Kombat 9</a> will be returning to it's former M rated glory, after the T rated <a href="http://www.trmk.org/games/mortal_kombat_vs_dc_universe/">Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe</a>. That confirmation comes from <a href="http://www.twitter.com/noobde"> Ed Boon's personal Twitter stream</a> via a series of updates earlier today while discussing some motion capture work that was in progress at for <a href="http://www.trmk.org/games/mortal_kombat_9/">Mortal Kombat 9</a>. I think this is great news, as it shows that the MK Team is attempting to push the envelope of the M rating in <a href="http://www.trmk.org/games/mortal_kombat_9/">Mortal Kombat 9</a>. I believe they will be amping up the violence to a level which is expected from <b>Mortal Kombat</b>. It sounds very much in the direction the team was going in before the DC Comics crossover opportunity presented itself. That would be great news, as it means they have had plenty of time to let ideas grow and evolve over the past few years. I know I personally can't wait to see it. Credit for this story goes to <a href="http://www.mortalkombatonline.com/content/News/read.cds?article=1183">Mortal Kombat Online</a>. Since their story includes my Twitter name <a href="http://twitter.com/mccarron">@McCarron</a>, I figured we should get around to posting it now to let our readers know from me directly. You can also follow <a href="http://twitter.com/TRMK">TRMK on Twitter</a> as well as the fun to-follow <a href="http://www.twitter.com/MKRTs">Mortal Kombat Re-Tweets</a> who reposts fun Mortal Kombat references found on Twitter all week long. As a funny side note, Ed also threw in a great joke later giving a new subtitle to <b>Mortal Kombat 9</b>: <a href="http://twitter.com/noobde/status/2228255801">"Attack of the Nuns: Get in the Habbit !!"</a>. Seems that he has dropped the "Attack of the Dogs" line and added in Nuns instead.

I don't want them to sacrifice a good story, or konquest mode, or anything else for the sake of better gameplay. You shouldn't need to. That's what MKvDC did, and look how long ago I stopped playing that. MKDA didn't last a month for you? MKvDC didn't last a week for me. Because it had NOTHING but fighting.
I hope they spend more time on the fighting aspect of the game this time instead of spending so much time on a Konquest mode. We have storyline games already (MKSM was good) so I think for the fighting games they should just focus on the fighting part of it. I don't know about the newer games such as Deception and MKA, but the Endurance rounds in the 2D MKs were fun where you had to fight 2-3 characters one after the other. It added more challenge to it.

Gameplay makes a game. Storyline gets old after you've read and heard it all, but gameplay makes you want to play the game. In this day and age with DLC, there shouldn't be any reason not to have that in the games. Just think of DLC in MKSM and using characters like Kintaro (instead of hacking the game) to complete the game. That would add even more replay value to the game. Same should be done with the fighting games and adding more characters to the game via DLC instead of just making another MK game with them in it.
