Aw, no Dogwelder... I'm elated and disappointed all at once. While the last four characters are awesome, now there'll be no more announcements. It's just the long two months until we get the game. And also, no Shokans! I really did want to see Goro or Kintaro in Next Gen graphics. And still, after all the demand ever since it was announced, no Lobo. Come on Midway, you can cobble together two characters in 2 months can't you?

Wow, I'm really surprised Cage didn't make it, but... Baraka and Kahn? Awesome. I expected that Baraka was just too brutal a fighter for this game and wrote him off pretty quickly, so it's great to see that he made the cut. Kahn was certainly the obvious choice for a boss on the MK side, but still, I'm glad he's actually confirmed.

And Baraka was an obvious choice over all of those guys because he is not only better but THERE ARE NO VILLIANS IN THE GAME! We needed someone to give this game some excitement besides The Joker. Kabal = boring. Kung Lao = cool, but too many good guys. Reptile = should've been chosen over Jax. Ermac = lame as you would say. As for Lex Luthor - see The Joker. The Joker is probably going to be the best character and the character that sells the game to non MK or DC fans. He cant hang with any of the DC characters besides Batman, but again he will be one of the best in the game. And Superman cant take a piss without Lex Luthor. He was an obvious choice.
I can honestly say this news of Dark Kahn, Baraka and Luthor has got me bummed. The idea of a merged boss is kinda lame, IMO. And I am very amped about Kahn being in the game, but I dont want him playable. He was so much more badass when he sucked all the tokens out of your pocket or made you wanna throw your controller through your TV screen. And Baraka over Kung Lao, Kabal, Reptile or Ermac? LAME....IMO. Lex Luthor should be in the game, but not as a fighter. I understand his place in the DCU, and he is a GREAT villian, but seriously, can he really hang with the Superman's, the Shazam's, or the Wonder Woman's, yet alone with Raiden, Jax, etc. I kinda feel a bit let down with this news....and shame on whoever let this info leak this early. lame. end rant/

Maybe the reaction is more based on the fact that these are (most likely) the very last characters to be revealed and any hopes for other fan favorites are pretty much demolished.
Does noone like Baraka? I always thought he was an unspoken favorite among Mk fans.

As for Kabal's saw, it's very useful in juggle combos.
Originally Posted by : GlamadorSpeaking as how Lobo has a more powerful powers then Goro, and Goro was defeated by Liu and Cage...yeah that's not saying much. Raiden, Fujin among many others would kill Lobo with ease though. Goro is blahh...just 4 arms and can shoot a fireball. He would beat Lobo in arm wrestling though I'm sure.
You're right MKF, there's no match between Lobo and Goro. Lobo would rip his limb from limb from limb from limb. As for Kabal's saw, it's very useful in juggle combos.
