Huh, looks pretty fast paced. I was kinda interested in this one, but I never got into the ultra fast paced fighting games. I mean, what are you supposed to do when Mileena is teleporting all around the screen and shooting magic balls hitting you 46 times in a row? Just set the controller down and watch? I don't know, that just doesn't look fun. Guess I am a more methodical, tactical style gamer.....

I have to admit, this works on me. It taps into how MK looked when I enjoyed it the most, and I didn't expect it to as long as they kept this bulkier look for the characters.

I have this dormant half ironic appreciation for the americanised "asian mysticism" of this series, and I've actually been a somewhat faithful fan even in the later years when it ventured even further into being a complete self parody. Deadly Alliance and Deception especially got a rise out of my closet fan pe...p.. pole.

But this genuinely seems to bring back the mental air combos and near-exploit like gameplay of the first three (fourish with UMK3), so yeah, you know what, I'm actually on board.

Block. It's one of the most fundamental moves of any fighting game.

While taking damage, the "super" like energy meter fills and the victim of long combos can use a breaker to escape the long session. Of course, this means empty super bar for him/her and (by now) full bar for Mileena which brings us to the uber awesome X-Ray attacks.

Looks pretty awful to me. Jerky animation and well, to be fair i'm not exactly expecting this to be a particularly deep fighter. If you jsut want the nostalgia and gore, i guess it's a hit but i don't thihnk it'll be a particularly good fighter (MK never was though, so in essence i'm undoing my own whining here).

About the game


What's up?
  • b0vril
    b0vril Yea, steady 30fps on PS4 as far as I could tell. (55 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I was a little surprised given how well For Honor runs, but they're totally different. For Honor isn't loading any maps that size anyway. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX High end hardware could not keep it running at a steady 60 fps anyway. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @b0vril: The PS4 version runs at a pretty steady 30 fps I'm guessing? PC performance on the first beta was pretty bad. (1 Hour ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @GriftGFX: I am playing wildlands on PS4, didn't notice any slow down. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No I meant the audio. Maybe it only works over USB on Windows. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Oh you controls wise? Because games work fine wirelessly via Bluetooth. But I was hoping I could then connect my wired headphones to the controller and hear audio and also chat via Xbox app (1 Hour ago)
