Tao Feng Fist of the Lotus guest character(s)?
06/11/2014 04:42 AM EST
I cant help it... but the two new characters showcased remind me so much of Tobais' (failed) fighting game...

...but we all love Tobais for good reasons. Would you be open to the idea of having any character(s) from Tao Feng in this next MK (revamped of course). If so, which one(s)?

For some of you new comers who have no idea of what Tao Feng is, I suggest you do some research and keep an open mind. smile

For all you yub-nubs who don't know Tao Feng:






Oh my fucking god....




I never played Tao Feng, though, only followed it online like a desperate nerd admiring a hot popular chick in school who we'll never touch... and that's because I never wanted to buy X Box just to play one damn game.

So... saizero.... you asked the question but didn't answer it yourself. Which characters do YOU think could fit in MKX?

Never played it (or heard of it tbh) but I think we see some D'Vorrah inspiration right there.

Tao Feng was a really shitty game and I am not impressed with the character designs either, so no, I wouldn't want any of the characters to guest the MK franchise.

Tao Feng was the shit. I mean the gameplay wasn't great but I thought the graphics were amazing and years before its time! Also, it had good elements like ripped clothing years before MK ever tried doing such a thing.

Sad it never became a huge franchise. I'd love for the characters to be adopted into the MK series. Iron Monk was so badass!

Loved Tao Feng when it came out. Broken limbs was a great feature and forced you to change the way you played. The animation also looked like proper martial arts, something MK has failed to do for a few games now.

Even on Xbox, the graphics were terrible compared to Dead or Alive 3. And imo Tobias is way over-rated.

I never had the chance to play Tao Feng, although I've always wanted to. If they were to pull characters from any other fighting game, I would go with either Eternal Champions or Weapon Lord. Both had the gore factor and pretty interesting characters.

Seriously, dude? You act like MK would even exist without Tobais being a part of its history.

Oh, God how much do i want a TF/MK mash-up!!

Tobias was a freaking genius - TF had all the Asian elements and character depth that everyone here has been clamouring for since he left.

Also, TF had so many concepts & mechanics long before MK. When MK had face damage, TF had full body & clothing damage. TF had interactible 3D environments that weren't circular. TF introduced the meter that when filled, enables the unleashing of a supermove. Even the button inputs work on a front punch/back punch/front kick/back kick system.

There are even things that MK would benefit from having - limb damage added strategy and realism to the game, and given the way MK has fighters brutally crushed by X ray moves only to get up all fine & dandy, it would seem that a damage mechanic would mesh so well.

I don't think it was perfect - and this is not the talk of nostalgia goggles because i was only introduced to TF last summer. The crazy dynamic camera angles conflicted with the 'back to block' mechanic instead of having a trigger button like i'm so used to. Some of the longer combos are a nightmare to try and pull off. But the animations and character builds and overall graphics were not bad - it measured up pretty similarly to Deadly Alliance, which was made around the same time.

As for which characters to include, well, would all 13 of them be such a bad choice?

Yeah the yellow lady looks like D'vorah somewhat, and then the Asian guy with the long pony tail seems to be doing the same exact pose as Lao's mid round pose lol

Anyway no, I just want Tobias to be a part of the team again.

Ah, the random resurrection of years-dead topics continues I see.

Eternal Champions in Mortal Kombat. Interesting concept. I don't even know who even owns the rights to EC at this point. The property could probably be considered abandonware by now. Nightmare, Shadow, Blade and Xavier I could definitely see as guest additions. I do not like guest characters on principal, but they could be inserted as guests and not be so extremely departed from the source material that they could actually fit in somewhat well.

A pipedream, but an interesting concept.
Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

I always liked Iron monk alot. He was my favorite in Tao feng. He would fit MK in general not MKx perse. MKx reminds me more of MK special forces....

Don't let the story mode affiliations fool you.

There's only 4 army based characters on a total of 37.

If we were to get any guest characters from old, forgotten game series, I would prefer if they came from old Midway games. And instead of being guest characters, just introduce them into the series proper. Like Street Fighter did with Final Fight characters.

I already thought before his name was revealed that Kotal was a redesigned Ahau Kin from War Gods.
