Hah I'm loving the whooping and cheering, someone got caught up in the moment. =P

A rather concise presentation, it did feel rather short though. Oh well, this is somewhat of a good thing, at least we're not being spoilt with oodles of information to misinterpret like with did with MK:Armageddon. Although saying that I can't wait for E3 to see a playable version of the game.
 
I just want 3 more pictures. I would be happy with 3. One of Scorpion, and 2 other characters, doesn't matter which ones.
 
Yeah, including hidden characters and bosses MKDA had 24 characters, it's a good place to start, and improve on later. I would have liked more, but thinking again, I still haven't seen all of Armageddon's endings yet. As long as you have to work to get hidden characters and costumes, it'l keep me coming back.
