On the heels of a masterful and unique interview with Mortal Kombat co-creator, Ed Boon, comes another generic "gee I've heard that before" interview over at GameDaily. The feature mildly touches on the new gameplay additions and reveals that the next generation Mortal Kombat game is on track to be out sometime in 2008.

As I started chatting with the co-creator of Mortal Kombat about the changes being made to Armageddon, I soon began to understand why the MK series has less depth and caters a lot more to the casual gamers than hardcore gamers. Ed Boon is a Tekken fan. He told me that when he's home playing for fun he plays Tekken, it's his favorite fighting game. In fact, when I asked Boon if he had seen the full length Tekken 6 trailer, he hadn't and was overjoyed when I showed it to him on my camcorder. He loves the depth in Tekken, but he also understands that it can be hard for a casual gamer to get into a deep fighter like that. Mortal Kombat is his work and he decided to make the MK titles more accessible to the casual gamers.

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is scheduled to be released in October 2006 and is the final Mortal Kombat fighting game on Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation 2 consoles.

I will admit, MK caters to those who don't like much depth to their fighting. Which I don't. Tekken and Soul Calibur (MY GOD THAT GAME IS COMPLICATED!) just arn't my style. I don't want to have to study my fighting games to play them. Long live MK! As for all this "casual gamers" shit, idk where that comes from. I'm a hardcore gamer all the way, doesn't mean I don't love MK just as much!

Well, Boon has good taste :D (I'm a huge Tekken fan). I don't know about calling SC a complicated game, considering that it's the 2nd least complicated 3D fighter (the simplest being DOA). VF takes the cake with technicality though (but not necessarily depth), and it makes it a bit of a guess game. There has got to be more fan interviews with Boon; kind of like the ones at E3. I don't particularly care for the bs that the press typically spews; Dawson ... well, he's not Doug Perry bad, but he's up there.
