E3 2014: Ed Boon Appears on Giant Bomb Live

It was a massive E3 for Ed Boon! The NetherRealm Studios Creative Director and Mortal Kombat Co-Creator remained prolific throughout the three-day public shows, appearing on stage, on podcasts, and even simulcast on two online streams [Twitch & IGN]! Having logged an informative 11.5 mins with Giant Bomb on Day 2 -- he returned on Day 3 to be a mere guest on a packed LIVE show.

Things went much smoother than Ed's last live show appearance, but was no less rich in talking points!

Confirming previously reported doubts, he struck Kiefer Sutherland off the potential cast list. IGN reported a quote from the 24: Live Another Day star way back in February, but Ed assures someone got it wrong.

Responding to some of the initial backlash at the sound of a contemporary track over the MKX reveal trailer - he assured there'll be no pop music in the actual game. Fortunately, we learnt (during the week) that Dan "Toasty" Forden will be back to complete the MK music wishes of many.

During the infamous 2014 GDC Giant Bomb Live - Ed discussed aspects of the unrealized Mortal Kombat HD remake [Related Article: Lost Kontent: Mortal Kombat HD Behind-the-Scenes Photos] This time he looked back to 2005's cult-favourite Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. revealing the action-adventure variant originally began with as a demo starring Raiden! It was produced independently by Paradox Development (aka; Midway Los Angeles) and brought to the Chicago team, who collaborated with them.

More subject broached include: Kevin Tancharoen, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Tattoo Assassins & more. We'll endeavour to off a more thorough analysis soon. Register to share your thoughts on the Mortal Kombat X forum!

You won't miss anything. The video is boring and the interviewer is lame. They talk about some other game while booN is being silent.

I liked MK Legacy. It was just his interpretation, it's not like it's canon or anything. Just entertainment. No need to get all worked up about it.

RE: E3 2014: Ed Boon Appears on Giant Bomb Live

I'm already a fan of the Giantbomb guys so it's nice to see them just chill and talk some vidya games with Ed. Usually they get a much more casual rapport going on compared to other interviews.


As far as interview tidbits, a lot of it is just quirky industry stuff:


- Ed alluded to a "fifty year old character X" when talking about generations.


- Reveals are planned out and scheduled to coincide with upcoming conventions over the summer and into the fall.


- Ed explained "why Unreal 3 ?" and it's because they've been working on MKX for a while now and they have a heavily modified Unreal 3.


- Ed said MK3 was his favorite of the classic 3 games.


- Ed' favorite Killer Instinct character is/was TJ Combo so, he was excited at the KI trailer.


- NRS is housing developers that worked on Time Killers, Bloodstorm, and Shaolin Monks.


- Ed talked about the constant internal conversation and design philosophy around making a game mechanically accessible while simultaneously providing deep gameplay. His example was, "If we took 100 people off the street and had them attempt to input a move how many of them would be able to do it?"


- Ed was kinda bummed that he didn't get to check out other games / booths since he was so busy with MKX.

Or maybe he doesn't drink American beer cos American beer is pisswater. Boon confirmed for German steiner-addict. Or possibly a whiskey man, be it Irish or Scottish
