    Since the Krypt is on Shang Tsung's island, which was the host of the MK1 tournament, if there's no bottom of the Pit with Reptile as an unlockable they fucked it up and the game will be a 2/10 in my books.

    I have a hunch that remaining ninjas will return as fighting styles of Chameleon (just like NRS did with Triborg in MKX).

    Fuck characters like Triborg. I don't want some gay ass generic suit that changes colors, I want the actual characters that have fully fleshed out move-sets and personality/swag to them.

    This trailer was fucking good, and it's also the only time the music has fit in perfectly and actually enhanced it. This one got me hyped.

    Lol, young Liu Kang and Kung Lao's reaction to the fate that awaits them in the future timeline is priceless: "Liu, our future is insane!"

    Wait, so is old Jax with Kronika now? He's wearing the same white/gold getup like most of her goons.

    Didn't Jax die again? Maybe that explains it.

    Fuck if I can keep track.

    Yeah, I am sure you won't when the game sells like shit and you're forced to go back to designing match-3 games.

    And showing male skin is all fine and dandy rite, no double standard dere mateys.

    He did in MK9, but got ressurrected and went back to normal in MKX.

    I am just wondering why's he supporting Kronika now, since she wants to erase this new "timeline" (caused by Raiden in MK9) which possibly includes his own daughter Jacqui as well.

    In one of the spoilers he is mentioned to join Kronika because of trauma.

    In MK11, current timeline Sonya dies just in the very first chapter so that maybe be the trigger for mental breakdown.

    Kronika is against Dark Raiden and he is the one who ordered assault on Netherrealm.

    Actually, it's the first gaem since Deception that tries to expand universe and first since Armageddon that truly pushes plot forward.

    Arcade Ladder endings are not canon tho, at least not this one. Erron Black literally has a variation of this ending where he succeeds in killing all the Kombat Kids.

    These three are the most interesting looking characters so far. They've got so much stuff going on that they almost feel like they're from a different game than the characters shown off at the start of all this.

    If only that truly happened.

    After playing Killer Instinct last night casually with a friend online I say this with no bias, but Sadira is an example of a female fighter that was done with confidence. That's why the women in this game look so underwhelming and goofy, they don't visually pop out because they're being designed by people that are scared of being offensive so you compromise anything interesting or eye catching.

    Killer Instinct is also a great fighter in general that had the misfortune of being an X-Box One exclusive for years.

    In new kombat game all women just looks the same. Boring. Even dozens of multicolored ninjas/strippers back in the days had more personality. And i fucking hated multicolored ninjas/strippers.

    You mean you don't like plain looking dykes and trannies with no tits? That's the only "women" Netherrrealm have at their office so this is clearly very realistic and the only acceptable depiction of women. As we all know, and they've said themselves, they're striving for a realistic game here.

    What even happened to that game. I only know there was a reboot but I guess it kinda didn't get the traction it needed?

    Yeah, it being an exclusive on a console that nobody really cared about really hampered it and it tried to do things on a "MOBA" style basis of releasing characters one-by-one rather than just making a game with like 20 of them from the start. I think it came out with only like four, which was shameful. There was a Steam release not too long ago that has everything, about thirty characters at this point and some cool modes if you're into the single player life. It has what I consider the best training/tutorial mode in any fighting game ever, a good soundtrack and if you love combos then the game is pretty much porn for you.

    It's a really good fighting game that got marred from stupid decisions and a nearly dead console for three years.

    Merida, again
    The KI remake/reboot was rather lame to be honest. Failed to capture the spirit of the first two. As a stand alone (just ignore the originals) it is rather mediocre as well. The character designs are not to my liking either. Fuck that game. It's shit.

    Sounds good, especially the singleplayer content (since I couldn't give two shits about online). I might get it when it's on sale, I guess.

    Did you want a good plot for a Mortal Kombat game? Have some realistic expectations man.
