Mortal Kombat 11

  • @dmcmaster I’d actually say they did, especially after coming from MKX. Have a listen to frame trap, ep 80, from about the 30 minute mark they get right into it, Its actually worse than I first thought. There is so much filler now, there’s almost no way to grab something you’re after in particular, and some mechanics just seem like there was no other way to look at it, it’s just bad. I hope they fix it properly, this game is so so close to being brilliant.

  • I haven't even played MKX yet but the gear grind sounds hella worse than Injustice 2. I haven't played I2 in a while and never got super deep into it, but I remember that getting gear wasn't very hard at all.
    Glad I've decided to wait. I'll live vicariously through Maximillian Dood until this shit gets fixed.

  • The patch should arrive any day now, hopefully they've done enough to make the Krypt have more sense. That's the biggest deal for me. Otherwise the game has been really good and entertaining as hell.

  • Speaking of the Krypt I'd love to be able to zoom into the map, or have chest you've already opened marked .

  • I took some time and finally finished the Story mode, played the other half of it on one sitting now. Really entertaining, good and surprising character interactions throughout the journey. I'd still say that MK9 is the tightest package of these three when it comes to the story, though. It has the benefit of utilizing the original trilogy and its happenings and present it all in a very exciting way, both visually and narration-wise. But yeah, MK11 does a very solid job as well on that front.

    About the ending:

    That's kind of the biggest hurdle to process. Did I like it or not? Basically they just erased it all. Everything. We're at point zero with Fire God Liu Kang and Kitana creating the world and its history now. I mean I get it, this is now a really free and open point to start building MK12, but on the other hand I'd have also wanted to see how everything would've continued from this point onwards. Sure, some klassic kharacters were dead now, but still.
    But okay, like said, there's literally all the freedom in the world now for MK12 and where all the characters will be. Who they will be, things won't be the same for many of them, I reckon. Sonya and Kano as cop buddies? Sure. Johnny Cage ruling the Outworld? Could be. Shang Tsung mentoring Kung Lao? Why not.

  • @sentinel-beach

    Personally Iget the feeling that MK12 might end up being a huge reboot for the entire franchise

  • I think I'm pretty deep in the Krypt. Maybe? The last thing I did was place the Dragon Amulet on that door by the cliff side and found inside a new obstacle of sorts. And then had to google, as I felt I'd been in every other place already. And yeah, the way to proceed with that one isn't really tied to any place, per se.

    About the requirements, which will take a while to fulfill:

    Three amulets are needed there:
    Kronika's one I got by paying 50 000 coins to that shrine statue.
    Shinnok's one requires you to buy that one tree in the forest area for 10 000 souls. Uuh, that sounds lovely. Also a recipe is needed after that for the forge etc.
    Cetrion's one you get by doing 50 Fatalities to her in tower matches (I guess). You'll get her head then for that long row of faces in the Krypt and also the amulet that away.

  • @sentinel-beach yeah...

    I can muster the souls, but 50 fatalities on Cetrion... there’s also the other heads near the statues, 50 fatalities per character. Don’t mind so much the fatalities... but I’m gonna see a whole lot of those same fatalities! Also re the souls, there is a recipe to forge 250 souls, I’m about up to where you are and had enough ingredients to push 750 souls into my bank account.

  • Hey all, just wondering what karacters everyone is playing?

    I’ve been getting in deep with Scorpion from the get go and think that’s why I found the combos a lil less intuitive or accessible to start with than MKX. He’s not super flexible and doesn’t really have a lot of simple moves that get lots of hits in, but can be a lot of fun once you really know what you’re doing. However I had a quick go with Noob and in the short time I’ve played with him he’s a corner combo beast, almost every string launches with an opportunity to keep it going.

    Found any particularly fun kombo bringers yet?

  • Your soul is his.

    "Shang Tsung is coming to #MK11 along with Spawn, Sindel, Nightwolf, and 2 more guests in the Kombat Pack! Early access to the Sorcerer begins June 18th."

  • Dammit NetherRealm Studios, what's the deal with your pricing strategy? That Shang Tsung reveal actually got me hooked on buying the Kombat Pack, but now I finally checked it on Store and holy Jeep-bus, that's 40 euros?! That's insane. I got the whole game for 45. And even if I had got it for sixty, forty would still be a ridiculous sum for six new characters and some costumes. Man, this feels disappointing now. Maybe it'll be on sale for Christmas or something.

  • Spawn! I’ve been waiting years for that announcement. Perfect fit.

    Joker looks pretty stupid, plus I'm just plain disappointed that he turned out to be one of the DLC characters, not interested. Arnold on the other hand looks really good, should be an interesting person on the field. But damn this schedule, Spawn fans are dying out of frustration because they'll have to wait til March!

  • Gotta say I'm actually surprised Joker made it in, maybe a MKvsDC 2 will actually happen

    Terminator didn't seem that exciting after all. "The change of skins" was a neat touch still.

  • I am constantly blown away by how good NetherRealms faces are, which is even more impressive considering they had some of the worst faces in gaming with MK9/10 and Injustice 1.

  • Kinda disappointed at whoever is doing that Arnold impersonation, hell this sounds more accurate (also a window into online play next week)
