Freddy Krueger was top selling DLC character in Mortal Kombat 9

Ed Boon posted a Tweet the other day divulging an interesting bit of information about the Mortal Kombat 9 DLC characters. It appears that between Kenshi, Rain, Skarlet and Freddy Krueger, Freddy was the top selling and most downloaded of the bunch. This comes as a surprise as many players felt the decision to make Freddy Krueger a playable character in MK9 was a bit out of left field.

This begs the question: Will NeatherRealm Studios include another obscure character as DLC in their latest fighter, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and will it have similar results?

If you could choose a character that isn't DC Comics related to include in Injustice as DLC, who would it be?

Mortal Kombat: Legacy season 2 likely starting in May, 'they've completely flipped Liu Kang upside down' says actor Brian Tee

Mortal Kombat: Legacy season 2 likely starting in May, 'they've completely flipped Liu Kang upside down' says actor Brian Tee Brian Tee, set to star as Liu Kang in the upcoming second season of the gritty Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has had a talk with NerdReactor regarding this role, and why he didn't want to take it at first.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy made big headlines back in 2011, when it was first released, for bringing a more realistic take to the Mortal Kombat-series. Now, production of the second season is underway and will likely be hitting your computer screens very soon.

Below, you'll find what Liu Kang actor Brian Tee, an avid Mortal Kombat-fan since childhood, said when asked about his favorite Mortal Kombat-character.

My favorite character was Sub-Zero. I ain’t gonna lie. It wasn’t Liu Kang.

When I got offered the part, I was like, “Dude, I’m the last guy you want to play Liu Kang. Seriously, there are other guys out there that are kind of Bruce Lee-esque. They searched through my background and my acting, and things that I’ve done in the past and what I really like to do – you know, get into characters and really have an encompassing feel for all this other stuff.” Liu Kang in the video game, to me, when I was a kid coming up, I thought, “That’s like a wannabe Bruce Lee.” He was this one note caricature of a martial artist/kung fu guy. I wanted someone with a lot more depth and a lot more feeling and character struggle.

Ed Boon hints at Mortal Kombat 9's release on Steam

Over the past few months we have heard multiple rumors of Mortal Kombat 9 making it's way to PC.

A listing on Amazon UK appeared a while back for the PC version of MK9 but was quickly pulled offline. Additionally, achievements for the game surfaced on the Steam forums last month, further hinting at a possible PC release.

One of Ed Boon's followers on Twitter adamantly stated that Mortal Kombat would be hitting Steam and Boon would be unable to prevent it. Boon replied thusly: Based on his response and lack of an attempt to shoot down such claims of MK9's transition to PC, many have come to the conclusion that this may be an unofficial confirmation.

If Mortal Kombat 9 does make it's way to Steam, do you think it will be well received? Let us know below.

CD Jr.: Injustice and MK9's gameplay are completely different - Injustice's gameplay is very unique and like no other fighting game

CD Jr.: Injustice and MK9's gameplay are completely different - Injustice's gameplay is very unique and like no other fighting game We had the chance to speak with Empire Arcadia's Emmanuel "CD Jr." Brito to get his thoughts on the upcoming release of Injustice: Gods Among Us.

CD Jr. is considered one of the best Mortal Kombat 9 players in the fighting game community, and was even invited by NetherRealm Studios to test Injustice ahead of its release, to offer feedback to the development team on how they could improve the product.

Emmanuel covers how Injustice's gameplay stacks up with MK9, how strong he thinks the tournament following for the game will be, and if the Capcom tournament players will be able to take on the MK community in the new title.

Check out the first part of the interview below, and hit the jump to read the entire piece.

EventHubs: You're regarded as one of the best Mortal Kombat 9 players around, how strong do you think you'll be in Injustice: Gods Among Us?

Emmanuel "EMP|CD Jr." BritoWell: It all depends on how much I end up loving the game. I am so good in Mortal Kombat because of how passionate I am about the game, and how much love I have for MK in general.

I am the type of player that if I don't REALLY like a game I won't be able really good at it, because I don't really care for it. I can play it, and be competitive, but won't try to excel at it. That is a why I'm not good at Street Fighter 4, I don't have love for the game. I know some pro players that play Marvel because of the money, and because it is the most popular game out right now, I can't do that.

EventHubs: How did you help NetherRealm Studios adjust Injustice while you were play testing the game? Were there any specific things that stood out to you during this process?

EMP|CD Jr.: We (the testers) were basically trying to find bugs, glitches, infinites, and giving opinions about the game, like what we think should change or stay, which characters we thought were too strong or too weak, which moves needed to be toned down or buffed, stuff like that.

What I really liked about testing Injustice: Gods Among Us was how the developers acted towards us when we were there, like they would tell us not to keep any opinions to ourselves and to always tell or ask them for any info about the game. They were all really nice to us.
