Trailer Probe : Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Items of geekity interest should be only two minutes long. Trailers make us laugh. They make us cry. They work so hard to make us happy.

Trailer Probe rates the geek explosion content, how much our cortex is combusted with a volley of geekitude and dork disengagement level is reasons you won't spaz about it.

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Geek explosion content: Wheee, you get to play The Flash!

I have spent much money on Mortal Kombat in my day, but this one is better because I like DC superheroes.

I want more ill-fitting crossovers. Now do Gears of War vs. He-Man.

Geek explosion level: 700,000 geek parts per million. Video games with fighting are sometimes fun. Video games with superheroes are never fun. But this one looks pretty.

Dork disengagement level: If you don't like playing video games, then playing a video game is probably not for you.

Even this one, which has guys from the video game everyone played in the 90s with the spine-ripping, who get a few lucky shots on DC superheroes and villains.

I don't know how Superman is supposed to be on an even level with Mortal Kombat guys. Magic? Maybe he's just not trying very hard. Superman would let them get a few licks in. He's nice.

You might also be a Mortal Kombat purist who doesn't want his mythos sullied by contact with the silly DC guys. In which case, sir, I will back away slowly. Please put down the katana.
