Midway Pulse 2006: MK Online Interviews Ed Boon!

During the Midway Pulse 2006 event, I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Mortal Kombat: Armageddon project lead and series co-creator Ed Boon. During this conversation, we discussed the possible fates of characters, touched on create-a-fatality, and other topics of conversation. We now present this video to you in Quicktime format.

A bit of warning: the video was taken in a very loud area, so Ed's answers may be a bit difficult to hear. We've gone ahead and made a transcription available, which you can view here. The transcription may not be 100% accurate, as I also had difficulty making out what he was saying in the video. If anyone wishes to send in corrections, they would be most welcome.

This concludes our coverage of the Midway Pulse 2006 event. Thank you for joining us for this event, and stay tuned with us as we look forward to E3 and beyond, for the latest coverage of all things Mortal Kombat.

Good, now lets see what he has to say, its kind of sad that this is the end though. When next can we expect another coverage like this?

RE: Midway Pulse 2006: MK Online Interviews Ed Boon!

alright i have watched it and the good thing is that we are getting unique fatality moves (like sub zero doing ice etc), also not every character is going to die and the bigger characters are going to move a bit slower and jump a bit lower than others to make it even. but some bad points are that we are not getting a wake up game or any sort of teching (he seemed to dodge the question) and the only new character we are getting is hero side notes: the next installment after MK:A is MK: shaolin monkys (cheesy, i know) where two monkeys escape from a zoo(?) and have the same powers of liu kang and kung lao (o_0)

Reading the transcription... wonderful move of him to force people to use a fatality system that's seemed to have gotten an overwhelmingly negative reaction. What a genius. Why ruin the main selling point of your game?

Read the transscript and I'm disapointed. No FMV fatalities? At least the fatality system will have signature moves for each character.

Notice he said he's modding Onaga's fighting style to fit in with the rest, it might be Blaze that is the big bad.

I think they're still not sure of who they wanna kill off. It also seems like they're re-thinking this whole thing.

Well done Scot! I must say your voice is booming and mighty compared to Boon's! He has a very quiet voice, so thanks for the Transcript.

Regardless of IGN revealing Motaro's appearance, it's a first for me that he has been included. I also liked how you pressured Boon gently on the wake up game issue. Boon was rather vague though, lets pray he implements a wake up game in the end as it's extremely vital to a working gameplay system. Again, well done Scot!

one thing though, you was going to get to create a character but then you skipped it and i thought you was going to do it later in the interview but it just got blow out.

RE: Midway Pulse 2006: MK Online Interviews Ed Boon!

This was EXCELLENT. Im not sure if you asked people for questions or whatever, but these were much much much better questions then the silly stuff people submitted and gets chosen to ask the mk team in the fight night events.

Excellent job with that, I think you digged the most important details about this game. Sad to know we wont get any classic fatalities like in the past games.

The ONLY thing that I wish you would had asked is “what about special moves”. I really want to know if the classic infamous specials are being brought back. I would just puke over the team if the nut punch and leg grab don’t make it.

Once again, excellent job with the questions.

You know, to me it sounds like we WILL get the:

“***WAT IF*** ENDINGS” again.

I too don’t think they want to kill most for good or that they will never bring back the ones that are “left to rest”. And shit, Scorpion WILL be back……agh.

Hmm, I would've liked to get some confirmation that Scorpion won't have an evil alignment or will be fighting alongside Quan Chi... sorry but I was hoping that you could get that cleared up, but overall pretty good interview.

I'm greatful for the MKOnline team to interview Ed Boon. What tick me off was the freakin noise in the background. I couldn't hear anything that boon had to say.

Does anyone have video experience? Maybe edit the video to block off the background noise?

I was asking the same thing during the MKA presentation. I was just waiting to see Shinnok and the other new characters perform their as yet unseen MKA special moves. I also really want the leg grab and nut punch back, I hope they don't forget about the classics as they are dealing with all this newness.

RE: Midway Pulse 2006: MK Online Interviews Ed Boon!

Wow, that was actually a pretty decent interview - only read the transcript. GG on mentioning wake up. I don't know why people are getting slanted on this create a fat idea; I mean, it's "new" and "different." I thought that's what MK was all about...:shrugs:. It's going to be kinda cool, if they do it right. We'll be seeing fat combo vids, combo shit like oldschool sub and reptile; it'll be great!

After that interiview, it's gotten me a bit excited in the pants but, I'm holding my reserves. Though, MKD brought back the OG aura, perhaps MKA can bring back some sense of OG MK's mechanics. At least in the "fun" and creative sense - because it will still be broken, there is no other way for MK to be.

Anywho, again, thanks for the interview and a double prop to the transcript, that's awsome. :thumbs-up:

Great Questions. It seemed kind of awkward in the beginning though, then I think that Ed loosened up.

Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monkeys was a joke! But was it intended to be a cruel one toward the question. Or just having fun in general meaning no answer but maybe.

wow, that fat guy has a major speaking problem. Lord of mercy, I'd hate to see him try and go on a date with a hot chick. He'd probably studder like a damn crack addict.
Next time hand Boon a damn sheet of paper with the questions on it. Sheesh.

BlackSaibot, quit being a douche rag. Guy takes time out of his life to deliver you news and you insult him. I'm afraid we couldn't hire any CNN anchors for your pleasure but we do have some volunteers that devote a lot of time into the site that you will unfortunately have to stomach. Hopefully your useless unappreciative ass gets some skulls.

RE: Midway Pulse 2006: MK Online Interviews Ed Boon!

Good interview like past MKO,MKteam interviews around this time of the year. I was thinking that why don't the MK team bring back the Max damage cap that was in MK4. I mean it was a great idea. It also help keep characters in check. It was cool to see both characters fall back one the Max damage limit was hit. I hope they bring back that feature one day.
