    I don't care about MK games anymore. Their plot is shit, their wymmynz are ugly monobrow dykes, their violence is boring overblown mess. Seriously this shit don't even deserve to lick Kano's boots from first MK. His heart ripping fatality was fresh at that time and clearly marked him as ruthless criminal. Now he's nothing special. Everyone are the same - just retarded edgy teens.

    Looks really bland and not even like an MK character. There's nothing appealing to me and worst of all she occupies the space Tremor, Rain and Fujin did with her move set incorporating all their elements. Stupid as fuck.

    That fatality is... all over the place. It looks like a scrapped super move from Injustice, especially with that useless rock and stomping part at the beginning.

    "New School vs. Old School."

    Somehow don't have lizardman Reptile vs. human ninja Reptile.

    Instead gives rejected Injustice characters.

    Genius.

    Poison Ivy... Nothing to see here, move along.

    I wonder if they reveal Cyber Frost before release day or just keep her in secret to the very end.

    It's retarded that they are making all the characters look so dull, and yet are doing all these over the top fatalities. It's almost like, after finishing all the assets they were like, wow, this is really boring now, we'd better spice it up.

    Another character where his/her fatality is a random string of events. What the fuck does getting crushed by boulders and then being stepped on have to do with getting hit by a laser from space? A fatality should be a clear single move that kills the opponent or a string of related events, where the final move is only possible by the moves prior to the finishing blow.

    They could have easily just had the boulders crushing the opponent and then fire that stupid laser. It would have been easy to assume the boulders were used to immobilize the opponent, so that he/she could not escape and be hit by the laser. Instead it adds a second move before the laser that destroys the boulders, rendering them completely pointless.

    The whole laser from space is dumb anyway.

    TBH, the part before the fatality (long chain of attacks that impales her to a tree or smth) would've totally qualified as a fatality in the previous parts of the game. Now it's merely a move. I dunno, I understand that MK is supposed to be violent, over-the-top kind of experience but even here some things are much better in moderation.

    Like, you know, Saw 1 (which roughest scene is a child's play by the standards of the series) still being the most intense movie of them all because it's not about the amount of gore, it's about delivery and presentation of said gore.

    But then, the game is shit because all its womyn look like they're 50 years old so I hope they flop hard enough to close down the studios.

    Wow, that's a big ol' MEH from me on her. That fatality wasn't fitting with the reboot/new timeline games of MK.

    MK has had a problem with inconsistent and event-unrelated fatalies for a while. Like in MKX where Scorpion would make a hole in someone's chest with the heart popping out and then..... cut off half of their face? (same shit in M11 where the takes off your lower body just to..... decapitate you?)

    At least they did it right that one time when Sub Zero would blow a hole in your chest and then break your spine through it, but fatalities like that seem to be more and more rare.

    Just make it fatalities. Fucking finishing blows. Not corpse carving.
    There is literally zero good people left. All cast are psychotic sadists.

    I don't care about fighting games, but why break the flow of the game with these 1s long slow down close ups and other mini cutscenes ?
    These mini finisher cutscenes before auctual fatalities are way cooler than fatalities themselves, they make fatalities feel completely unnecessary and underwhelming.

    Greedy character with slimy Khajiit voice. That must have taken a long time to conceptualize.

    The old school palette swap characters were more creative than these shit characters.

    I admit they improved him radically but why not just give us Caleb for Blood instead?

    Haven't got a time to watch it carefully but some dudes in the internetz are talking about some acid-based Erron Black attacks - if true then Reptile is ultimately deconfirmed.
