    Warner Brothers went on the warpath, manually blocking dozens (if not hundreds) of videos that spoiler and/or criticize MK11.

    As a result the last two pages or so of this thread are full of dead YouTube links.

    Don't deal with douchebag publishers.

    Do you think the first thing they did in Jax's arcade ending was kill Noob Saibot for being a Chinese guy in blackface?

    There're so many many inconsistencies, plot holes and bullshit it's not even funny...

    - Past versions of each character are from old timeline (MK1-MKA) or from the past of current timeline? Raiden mentioned that they were captured by Kronika just after Kung Lao beat Shang Tsung and Quan Chi (MK9 event), yet Jax is in the Kolliseum - if it's still MK9 he should be crippled (armless), escaping with Sonya to Earthrealm... Neither of them never managed to reach Kahn's Arena in MK9. What's more, Jax explained Jacqui that Scorpion ripped Bi-Han's spine off - we don't know how exactly Sub-Zero died in original timeline but in MK9 Scorpion burnt him with Toasty Fatality and brought SZ's skull back into Shang Tsung throne room so....???

    - MK2 Raiden, as a reaction for Sektor's name, points that he was a Grandmaster of Lin Kuei... actually he was the son of Grandmaster - does anyone in NRS remember plot of their own games?

    - Kronika admitted that she's going to create timeline without Raiden, because alliance between Raiden and Liu Kang is serious danger for her, right? Then explain WHY she brought back both of them without even trying to bribe Liu Kang instead of teleporting just evil guys alone? Thanks to her, Raiden had Liu as component for Gogeta fusion which brought her demise, it's beyond retarded.

    - Frost (in OG timeline ambitious warrior who lusts for power, now - annoying crybaby) accuses Raiden of ignoring her for years... but it's just MK2 Raiden teleported straight from MK2 events and in both timelines Frost appears years after MK4 events so both had no occacion to meet each other before, WTF?

    NRS can't be bothered to keep their own stories straight.

    In MKX you have a scene that supposedly occurs before the tournament in MK1(or was it mk2?) where D'Vorah shows up but yet she's never a major player in MK9 (for obvious reasons).

    In MK9 (and X) Scorpion's creation is attributed to Quan Chi where as in the original timeline it was a vague concept of his own "demons" and rage allowing him to return as a ninja spectre. Oh, but now he's not a spectre anymore, he's just a revenant under the control of Quan Chi. I've always disliked the way they've bluntly inserted Quan Chi into the MK1-3 events.

    But hearing the spoilers of MK11 doesn't surprise me. MK9 and X both had their fair share of things that were set up for them to have little to no payoff or just quickly abandoned. Remember Cyber Sub-Zero? It was a nice twist when it happens, but absolutely nothing comes from it.

    So, how's the actual gameplay? I know this is Codex and most people don't care but how is it this time around? Previous NRS games were pretty mashy and kasual but I heard this game was supposed to be more spacing and neutral focused.

    The game is filled with lootboxes and has an insane unlockables system, and of course it requires internet conection as DRM system for modes like the Krypt. Warner bros striking back harder than ever.

    Game got completely destroyed in the reviews section. Take for example this review:

    https://steamcommunity.com/id/Kitsuna/recommended/976310/

    *watches Maximilian Dood playing the game for 10 hours
    *buys the game just to trash it in the reviews section
    *plays the game for 20 minutes
    *asks for a refund

    A lot of Gamers these days find consumer activism and review bombing more interesting than actually playing video games. Especially folks who watch a lot of "consumer advocate" Youtubers like Jim Sterling or the late Totalbiscuit.

    Mortal Kombat mentions racism and now all of a sudden people are interested in the quality of its storyline.

    Imagine that.

    Yeah, imagine that. You start hamfistedly injecting "real world issues" into a game about bad ass dudes beating the shit out of each other and suddenly the shit stands out.

    Who would've figured.

    So there is time travel involved in this game? Because I watching a bit of someone playing it and I couldn't figure out how the 30 something Johnny and Sonya have an adult daughter. All my knowledge of MK comes from the movie with the Highlander in it though.

    I'm just waiting for XL to drop to 5 USD. I won't be playing it online so I can keep waiting. Speaking of online. I'm disappointed that all the modern fighting games except SF5 don't have the ability to play with the consoles. I'm mediocre at best and I need a wider playerbase than PC only can provide.
