…and we’re back! Just in time for E3, and this brand-spanking-new E3 trailer of Mortal Kombat Vs. DC, which has absolutely zero new characters or new footage. So why am I posting it? Well, I’m sure a few of you refused to sit through that Gametrailers TV bit a few days ago, so here’s your chance to see Catwoman and the Flash in action, and see demon ninjas punch Superman with terrifying effectiveness. Also, I think we all kind of have train-wreck syndrome when it comes to MK Vs. DC?it’s hard to look at, but we also can’t look away.
Last but not least, watching the DC characters do that exceptionally retarded upper body sway during the fights reminds me how much I hate Mortal Kombat as a game. No one does that, most because it looks stupid beyond words, and seeing Superman sway like a punch-drunk boxer before he gets beat up by Sonya Blade makes me cry. That is all.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
