GCO: "NetherRealm Studios previewed a portion of the Mortal Kombat X Story Mode, during a special Twitch livestream, that featured Quick Time Events."
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.
Even if it's just story mode, that's a step backwards for MK.
You do realize that fatalities are QTEs right?
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?
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
Sarcasm you bonehead
QTE's in a fighting game.......let that sink in for a minute. I'd rather you know....fight.
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.
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.
Never played the MK9 or Injustice Story Modes, eh?
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.
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.
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"
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
I hope it's sarcasm , i really do . If not QTE has been in the previous game from NTR , in story mode , nothing new ...
oh no the sky is falling the sky is falling cause quicktime events
and the downfall of mortal kombat continues... First,shitty relatives.What's the f*kin point of adding them if u're going to include the original copied from as playable characters in a roster of 24 fighters?I'll tell u what it's $$$$$$ and laziness.They could've added some new fighters worth caring for instead but apparently the idea's too risky and incohesive.Second,guest dlcs.Desperate for money are they?They could've added fan favorite fighters which fans are craving for that are excluded from the game but NOOOO Third,the gameplay.Oh my god,MK deception felt 3x more advanced than MK9.What happened to equipping a character's weapon,shifting arenas,automatic stage fatalities if a fighter gets too close,advanced long combo moves...? Mortal Kombat has turned into the casual's fighting game,I'll be waiting for the complete edition since I'm a long term fanny and I'll happily wait extra for the cheapest price I could buy.
that's a bunch of BS you just said.
how so?please enlighten me I think my points are valid and provide a brief answer as I have 2 bubbs
1.First they add sh***y relatives.What's the f*kin point of adding them Well obvious they're part of the story. Also how do you know they are completely sh**ty unless you tried the game? I recall people thought Trevor from GTA 5 would be a lame character but later after the game was release he quickly became a fan favorite. So lets not jump the gun before trying it out 2. Including guest dlc doesn't mean they're desperate. It gives fan a chance to try out non-MK/Injustice characters in the respected universes. Plus I don't believe NetherRealm Studios is in the hole given the sales their last two games. If they added fan favorites a lot people would still come up here and complain about something. 3. MK deception wasn't 3x more advance than MK9. MK:D held your hand when it came to combos and was extremely simple to perform long combos. MK9 took a page out MK2 book. Shorten the combos down 3-4+ hits and force users to create their own combos if they wanted something longer. The automatic stage fatalities were called death traps in MK:D. They were cheap and made for easy winning. Losing weapon equipping and shifting arena really doesn't hurt the game in any way as far as I can see it. If anything MK has evolve into a decent fighter and is anything but casual. Its predecessor(anything before MK9 excluding MK1&2) were simple and casual. They held your hand when it came to long combos. Thus performing long combos were easy. Death traps allowed cheap wins. If you're a fan at least support the developers. Waiting for the cheapest price doesn't help them in the least bit, it just help retailers to sell unsold copies and get some profit.
The seven minutes of the story looked good, hopefully they keep the bits of comedy like they had in MK9
I have seen only very few games that use QTEs decently, like Puppeteer where the button corresponded the action during the QTE (for example, X = jump), they didnt feel forced. As long as they are not going to abuse QTEs and allow us to enjoy the story cutscenes Im okay with these (which would mean the game would have to possition QTEs at the end/begining of gameplay sections/cutscenes)
Don't care it's a fighting game there will be plenty of fighting. Take my Munnies!!!
Why are people so against the use of QTE? Do you suck at them or something? They are not hard or that big of a deal. How was God of War such a success?
People should read first or even watch the story gameplay before jumping into conclusions... QTE will happen while the cutscene is playing, not while fighting... For god's sake
I'm excited for this game and have it pre-ordered at Best Buy. I'm not against QTE's, and I'd rather judge completely when I have the final product in my hand.
Just don't go overbroad with it. The spear grab qte was good, the turn around qte wasn't. I hate unnecessary qte like that. Keep it to a minimum have them be exciting and called for.
Why santa? Why? Why are you adding QTEs? Why?
This game is sounding worse & worse closer to release. I already knew the game was going to be mediocre just by the unfitting "song" that they slapped on the announcement trailer for it.
