RE: As a sub-boss, why not include The Predator this time?

what if the predator is sent from his home world to Hunt the MK fighters, he sneaks and challanges them to a fight he would have melee moves and combos imcorperating his weapons, his finishers could be brutal spine rips or using his wristblades to gut and slice in half the looser, i like the idea of a predator in MK, i hope midway sees this post as i would love to have him as atleast a secret unlockable charactor. it would just be epic

That MK mix u r talking about makes the Predator acceptable in MK, u can't include a guest character that doesn't have any similarities with MK and even though he stills unique, check his pic:

People... give the guy a break, it was just his idea of what he thinks is cool, it won't happen anyway, but you all act like bitches to him just for the bitching fun o bitching.

I have to say that I rather see Predator in this game than Batman or Superman, I really would HATE to see those characters as hidden character, that would spoil the ENTIRE game, at least for me.

RE: As a sub-boss, why not include The Predator this time?

I personally wouldn't want to see it. Very few times have I seen guest characters work (Soul Calibur II comes to mind), but for the most part, they are just cheesy, and an original character would be much more suited for the spot. Goro, Kintaro, or Motaro would work perfect for me.

RE: As a sub-boss, why not include The Predator this time?

Reading the full 3 pages of this topic and reading all your replies to everyones perfect reasons as to why Predator shouldn't be in this game has made me cringe.

Noting on the fact that you seem to have no ability to grasp the simple fact that it would not make any sense to have him in the story, I feel like I'm inclined to try to convince you.

I know for a fact you won't understand and will either not reply or will reply with a generic "I've already gave my reasons before" (Which in most cases, by the way, didn't make any sense considering the rebuttals refuted your original statement) I can't help myself. I don't want to. But my hands are typing.
I am asking you kindly to not take offense. I have realised that you are very sensitive to any kind of criticism and I don't want to offend you and end up getting a response like that of the ones you gave most of the other posters. I want you to try and take in everything I say and try to understand what I mean. This is constructive criticism. Please give me some back.

------

Now I want to explain to you about the properties of the franchises and why it will not happen. This is simple fact. I will explain based on ideas that it will happen later.

The reason MK vs DC happened is because the DC company and the MK franchise is owned by Warner Bros.
Now to do with Alien vs Predator. Rebellion did not buy the rights to use Fox's characters. Both Alien and Predator are properties of 20th Century Fox. Which is why the movie was able to happen. The game was made by Rebellion. A company owned by 20th Century Fox. It was all in-house.

Now I understand your point of "but it could happen with a good crossover idea and a lot of money". Simple fact, the MK team have a budget. They money they would need to just have the Predator character would ridiculous. It would be a wasted investment. Why?
Because not only would they be losing out on money they would be able to spend on more productive things for the game, it would be wasted money as they have already realised from the MK vs DC that it would push away they're hardcore MK fanbase. Yes sure MK vs DC made a shit load of money but they had a huge backlash from the fans and a lot of fans didn't buy the game and they know that. That is why they are making this game. It is a fan service. They are going back to their roots. Giving the fans what they want. A good story with MK only character and with an R rating. They wouldn't do anything stupid like that again.

And that isn't even pointing out the fact that they had a massive upset between each company before. The fact that one of their biggest rivals would be using one of their characters to make money is just a huge kick in the teeth. Which would mean if it was to happen they would want a SHIT load of money.

Therefore the money they would need to get Predator in the game would include:
The money they would normall want for using one of their properties
Probably a bit extra because they probably don't like Warner Bros very much
And they would have to take into account the amount of money that Mortal Kombat makes normally
And they would have to estimate how much money the Predator character would actually make. ie if Predator was in the game, how much more money would the game make?

That would be a fair bit of money. Way more than I'm sure the MK team has in their budget and way more than Warner Bros would be willing to pay for on character to add in a game that is essentially a test to see what the public wants of the Mortal Kombat franchise. And even then, he's going to be a Sub Boss!? Not even a main character. I doubt it very highly, they'll pay much for the license.

Now simple fact is, this is not a crossover game. There would be no reason to have Predator as a character in the game other than to make money off of it. Therefore there would have to be something on the box to indicate that you get Predator. It would be silly to have had a new alien movie, where all of a sudden Predator shows up and kills everyone. That's we it was called Alien vs Predator. That's why we see the movie. We want to see Predator fuck up the Aliens. Therefore a name change would be need or he would have to be on the front cover. Either way, the Predator would have to be the main character, not a sub boss.

----------------------

Now the idea of having Predator in the game.

To start off I have to get the things you said off my chest that annoyed me.

1. First of all I'd like to say that you've actually insulted me by saying that the reason Predator belongs in the MK franchise is because he looks scary and has lots of, to quote, "gory killings". Please, there is a lot more to the characters in the Mortal Kombat mythos than scary looks and gory kills. Look at Kitana. Rain. Liu Kang. Kung Lao. And a lot more. I can imagine if you were the creator of MK you would have all the characters look scary and intimidating with blood all over their faces. We have a lot of respectable characters in this game. Not all of them are based on the goriest kills and scary looks.

And just as a side note, when you said Batman does not belong in the MK mythos and Predator belongs in MK more than he does, I completely disagree. Batman definitely has the MK feel to him more than Predator does. He just feels as if he belongs. I can completely imagine Batman as being an original creation of Ed Boon created for the MK franchise and he definitely wouldn't feel out of place. Whereas an alien from outerspace coming down to kill some humans for no particular reason doesn't really feel like MK to me.

2. Again I find it quite insulting that you call yourself a fan of MK since the first game and have a bare understanding of the story. Outworld does not just include everything out of this world. If that was true, everyone from the Netherrealm, Edenia, Chaosrealm, Orderrealm and so on, would be from Outworld. Outworld is a realm. Think of it as a planet or an other dimension. Predator does not come from that planet and you cannot just stick him in there for shits and giggles. He does not belong there and it wouldn't make sense for him to be there. Especially when the Predator does not have any means to travel between realms.

3. The DC universe was not part of MK. It is a completely different storyline and is not canon to the MK universe. Just as MK is not canon to any of the DC storyline's. As Chrome said before me, these VS games are more "What-ifs" than actual continuations of each respected storyline.

4. No matter what you say having Predator in the game, whether it be done well with a good storyline, is still a cheap gimmick. He is not in there for artistic reasons. He is in there for the WOW factor. The whole "OMG I can't believe I'm fucking Scorpion up with Predator, this is awesome!" thing. This is a gimmick, just like 3D is a gimmick. People see 3D movies for the "HOLY SHIT!! That knife was coming right at me!!!!" No matter how much you sugar coat as artistic merit or good storytelling, he is still there as a cheap gimmick.

5. Yes Ed Boon has said that there may be some new characters. But they will be MK characters. New, yes, but MK. Even though Predator is new, that doesn't make him an MK universe character just in the same way that even though every DC character was new to the MK game, they are still DC characters, not MK's. And Ed Boon has already told us this is a full MK game.

6. You keep on saying "Sub bosses have less important stories but now with Predator they could make bigger story" or something of that sort. First of all, "Predator, a creature from outworld comes to destroy humans at the side of Shao Kahn" is no different than all the other sub bosses that we have had.

7 No he doesn't have potential as a fighter here. The Predator doesn't know martial arts. There is no need for it and it doesn't make sense for him to have knowledge of any. You could give him martial arts but that would be nonsensical and we have already been told by Boon that the story for the game will be better than anything we've had so far. So taking the martial arts out of the way, what do we do with the character? Just special moves constantly? No Thank You.

Now as for the story, I may be repeating what everyone else is saying but it just doesn't make any sense which is entirely frustrating when someone just doesn't get it. The idea of Predator teaming up with Shao Kahn is ridiculous. The Predator sides with nobody. He has no abilities to discuss. He hunts and kills. Therefore he cannot work for Shao Kahn and be someones lacky.
Which bears the question, to someone who is supposedly a fan of the Predator, Do you really want one of the coolest, most feared hunters in the universe to be someones bodyguard?
You even said it could be more than a bodyguard. Maybe an ally. Have you ever seen Predator have an alliance with anyone? I don't think so. He is a lone wolf. Killing for the sake of it.

Now comes the simple question, since he cannot be Shao Kahns bodyguard and is not from outworld and can only go to earth, what business does he have with the MK tournament. How would he find out about it? What would he want from it?

Lastly, taking away your idea of how to put Predator in the game, as you put it "The story is up to the MK team, not me" (Thank God Almighty). But do you really think that any of the MK team writers could come up with anything remotely believable in the MK story where the Predator could come in. It's a ridiculous concept and even Christopher Nolan couldn't think up a good explanation to bring Predator into the game.

The simple fact is, The Predator does not fit.

Now I'm not saying a merge idea is dumb. I quite enjoyed MK vs DC. But if a guest character came in and was part of the story, then it has to be a standalone game with it's own universe and storyline.
I'm not saying a merge should never happen. I'm quite privy to the idea of MK vs Street Fighter.
I'm not saying Predator in MK is dumb. It could be cool. Maybe purely for gameplay purposes but not in the storyline. As Downloadable Content, it could be fun. But the idea of introducing him as an actual real character within the MK universe is simply preposterous.
I'm not saying the Predator is dumb. I like his movies.
And I'm not saying you are dumb either. Just your idea.

---------

Finally, I would just like to ask you to stop bumping up your thread with a full stop all the time. It's very annoying. Especially when you have had 3 pages of people discussing your topic and you constantly acting as if you're fed up of people saying no to you. You've had a couple of people agree with you and that's probably the most you will get so please stop bumping in a desperate attempt to get more fame withing the MKO community and to find more people to think you have a million dollar idea. It's just plain rude and disrespectful. You're likely to get a ban if you keep on doing it.
If people want to discuss this, they'll post. I think we've discussed this topic enough and we've concluded that most people do not like/hate/detest the idea and I think the MK team will know that.

When you have a multi-million dollar franchise on your hands and you are coming up with ideas for your game and you think of something and suggest it to your fans to see if they like it and you come back a few days and find most of your fans saying that they will not buy the game and some of them even saying they will kill themselves if they go ahead with the idea, I think it's fair to say it's a bad idea.

I know that, so it'll be Rebellion & Warner Bros "temporary" joint.

Money wise I know it's tough but still possible and already done with DC like u said so y not wz Predator, plus the Predator WILL NOT change the roots or spirit of MK because he is even gorier, uglier, bloodier, more horrifying character than any MK character and a sub-boss only. Concerning the story, he has some potentials since he's a creature outside earth and his aim is to hunt/kill human race, like Outworld in MK. u r talking as if everyone is convinced with every MK character story!

A story WILL NEVER convince everyone, there's no book on earth that is 100% liked. It's like the music, if you take Pop music some like Madonna, others prefer Britney Spears...

For me, story wise I'd like to see a good writer who can alter Predator story in an acceptable updated reasonable manner that will fit with the MK old-school.

Concerning rivalry, guys please wake up, when there's a good concept with money involved, both companies will do the best to increase their profits. And you are forgetting the fact that both MK and Predator companies are benefiting, not only one of them. And y not by doing that they'll fix the rivalry image between them?!? Also, I don't agree because a rivalry happened before 20th Centry Fox will require more money, lol. That's not professional at all.

What's wrong with Predator being a sub-boss?? Sub-boss is supposed to be IMPORTANT, like Goro in MK1, he was extremely famous. After MK3, the sub-bosses declined. We need a powerful and interesting sub-boss again to revive him in MK and bring the fame back, the Predator could be the one and he could be unlockable to be playable too but this way more money will be involved I guess. SUB-BOSS is originally from the word BOSS.

To put Predator into the spotlights, the game title will be for example "Mortal Kombat: Shao Khan & Predator Ally"...and both characters pictures on the game cover.

1. lol, of course I'm not aiming for all characters to look like monsters or scary, but as a sub-boss yes it should be like that and it has always meant to be like that in MK.

My aim here is only sub-boss!!! My plan is:

Sub-boss + Famous guest character. ONLY

2. I know all the realms u r talking about, and I thought Outworld is the place he's going to ally with Shao Khan since Shao Khao is from Outworld. Is it clear now? And concerning the means, again this can be constructed through the story, for example Khao Khan sent someone to bring the Predator from his planet...

3. I never said the opposite. But again, this is NOT going to be a VS game for God's sake.

4. That's ur opinion and I respect that. And no one is forced to accept someone else's taste.

5. But also said there'll be surprises. OK if not in MK9, let it be in future MK.

6. This is a teeny tiny story and of my own. The general idea of the Predator is that he's a movie and game famous character, and not only MK will stress on his story but also Rebellion, so his story MUST be important including his other abilities and features.

7. Thank you for ur opinion and I'll stick to mine too.

And I'm not going to reply on the rest since it's quite repetitive or re-sentenced.

(LOL, I'm sorry for the foolstop bumping issues, I have a slower internet connection and sometimes I open several windows to copy/paste posts and reply in an organized manner. So I click on "Post" instead of "Edit" by mistake and will end up with two posts so I'll fill one of them with a foolstop. Fame was and will NEVER be my intentions, it's just a game u know, ridiculous).

what if the predator is sent from his home world to Hunt the MK fighters, he sneaks and challanges them to a fight he would have melee moves and combos imcorperating his weapons, his finishers could be brutal spine rips or using his wristblades to gut and slice in half the looser, i like the idea of a predator in MK, i hope midway sees this post as i would love to have him as atleast a secret unlockable charactor. it would just be epic


Another MK story board "possibility" that is related to the Predator original hunting skills/abilities

Good Day sir!! AAAARRRGH!!




actually he got an old gun i think it was in aliens vs predators the chick got the spear


Like I said, Predator is able in a way or another to share his technology skills with others, thx for confirming it.

People... give the guy a break, it was just his idea of what he thinks is cool, it won't happen anyway, but you all act like bitches to him just for the bitching fun o bitching.



I have to say that I rather see Predator in this game than Batman or Superman, I really would HATE to see those characters as hidden character, that would spoil the ENTIRE game, at least for me.


Right, I really don't understand y so many people got too complicated and arrogant with their replies.

Who was expecting MK vs DC will happen oneday?? I NEVER did and I bet others didn't expect it too. But the MK team convinced us with their concept and their marketing plans. Why? Because there's profit behind both. And don't tell me DC Universe characters are not important and famous like the Predator is, who doesn't know movies/actors/games of Batman? or Superman? At least one of those two is enough to be more internationally recognized than the Predator.

My concept is different now (not a VS version), it will not affect on MK spirit and roots like DC did play a 50% part of MK. As I mentioned before is to include only 1 important and famous guest character the Predator as an ally sub-boss with Shao Khan and has some MK potentials/similarities to do that.

People need to stop predicting things that you, I, and even MK team are not able to completely and immediately assure it, it's too early for that. This is a HUGE plan that takes time to be studied in every aspect. Don't jump to inaccurate conclusions making others hesitate to support the Predator, just give ur opinion about liking the Predator to be in MK or not and from there someone will decide if the plan studies should take place or not.

Didn't you see Predator 2? At the end, after the Predator is killed, the other Predators present Danny Glover with one of their spears.

Both Alexa and Harrigan were given the gun and spear because they showed that they had the survival instincts of a warrior/hunter. So in a since, the gun/spear they were given were basically trophies or prizes if you will. But that does not mean that they "shared there tech" by giving Alexa the spear,she earned it because she showed bravery, and honor like a warrior by killing a Queen Xenomorph.

A prize or not, the gun might not have to do with their tech, but what about the spear?? Isn't she going to check the spear and discover its secret tech?? It is an act of sharing "in a way or another".

No...she cannot just check it and discover its secret tech! she was a freaking rock climber for god sakes, not a scientist! even then, i highly doubt she would just hand it over to wayland yutani for "study". and the act of sharing does not apply here, they did not just share there tech. it was a way of giving here a prize for doing what would be a near impossible feat. and don't think that giving a prize to shao kahn would make it feasible, shao kahn would of stole the tech and killed the predator anyways.

so all in all, this whole idea is total garbage, makes no sense, and i pity you. i'm finished with this topic. good bye.
