As long as it's just in Story mode I don't see a problem with it. Just don't add quicktime events to the main fighting match. QT events have a time and a place.

Roccetarius889d ago

Even if it's just story mode, that's a step backwards for MK.

TFJWM889d ago

You do realize that fatalities are QTEs right?

MASTER_RAIDEN889d ago (Edited 889d ago )

I totally agree. I feel like quick time events actually CAN be a fun mechanic in certain instances. I would just never appreciate it in an actual match.
I also saw the story video put out that uses some qte during the game. looks like they put it together well!

all in all id say even if youre not a huge fan of qtes, its only a small part of what otherwise looks to be a fantastic game.

You really never played Injustice have you?

ZombieKiller888d ago

If you fail the quicktime events, you WATCH Johnny Cage get his butt kicked. Other than that, it's just there to mess with. No consequences except replay-ability when you decide to do different next time.

TFJ: by your standard then so are all moves. QTE's are when a button prompt appears and you press it in the remaining time allowed. Fatalitlies are not QTE's otherwise the button prompts would appear on screen.

A fatality is a fatality that requires good timing, the right distance, and the correct button input. Close but not entirely.

Oh goody! Hope they add black bars and more cutscenes than gameplay too!

Dont be a lil bitch buddy

QTE's in a fighting game.......let that sink in for a minute. I'd rather you know....fight.

CorndogBurglar889d ago

It'll follow the same formula as Injustice. Each character will have about 4 or 5 fights, and during cutscenes it will have quicktime like events. Its really not a big deal. Its like Injustice, which is a great game.

Kyosuke_Sanada889d ago (Edited 889d ago )

I haven't played Injustice but I loved MK9 and a bit old school when it comes to fighting games so I expected a dramatic battle intro followed by the real thing. I'm sorry if I am a little pessimistic about the approach but I don't feel it's needed that's all. I may have to give Injustice a try to feel different.

Hoffmann889d ago

Never played the MK9 or Injustice Story Modes, eh?

TenSteps889d ago

They mentioned that failing these QTE's won't lead to death you can prettymuch fail all of them and it would still lead you to the next fight, they're just there to create minor variations in the cutscenes.

I have no problems with QTE's if it's not made as an either you press it or you die mechanic.

Lionalliance889d ago

So? Injustice have their mini games in the story mode.

Injustice had quicktime style events too and it wasn't a big deal at all. They were ust during cutscenes, not during actual fights.

Kane22889d ago

their only doing this BS cause of the order. im sick of this crap. i loved the order. now every game has QTE and watch the hate or stupid "journalism"

xavierbigdaddy1972889d ago

Qte, ohhhh, no. Not in a fighting game. This is gonna get a four in review. Call angry joe, septic and the rest of the reviewers. We dimply cannot have this

Baka-akaB889d ago (Edited 889d ago )

I hope it's sarcasm , i really do .

If not QTE has been in the previous game from NTR , in story mode , nothing new ...
