RIP in peace gaming.

MK being cinematic like this is fine. The gameplay is fiiiiine.
Cinematic doesn't equal bad.

vishmarx1849d ago

exactly, start whining when you you actually think it plays bad.
mx9 played fine and mkx looks the same.
people get too worked up

Hold_It1849d ago

No only games like The Last Of Us and The Order 1886 deserve to be called bad.

slappy5081849d ago

Erm no.. Not the last of us, that's cinematic done right if you want to call it that, in fact it was one of the best games period, I'll. agree with you on the order though they seemed to focus on everything except gameplay. I don't think mortal Kombat will make the same mistake

Apatently cinematic is a dirty word now, like indie or something.
30 fps was fine for over 90% of game last gen and any previous gen now it's. Dirty word.
Qte was fine on previous gen now it's dirty word.
Corridor shooting was fine with gears of war but not its a dirty word.
Linear games was fine with uncharted now it's a dirty word.
Racing on a track is fine with every racing game but when it comes to Driveclub it's a dirty word.

People are not picking everything. Developers are having a hard time with the "gamers" what's left every game will have to be sandbox now ?

he's probably talking about story mode

Septic1849d ago

This is a fighting game. Hes obviously talking about the story mode, something that is neglected in the vast majority of fighting games anyway.

If thr combat mechanics are tight, what's there to complain about?

Lower the frame rate to 30 fps then.

MegaRay1849d ago

Dont forget the black bars, the whole "cinematic experience" depends on it!

Krimmson1849d ago

Can't have a cinematic experience without QTEs as well! Throw those in too!

Maxor1849d ago

It doesn't feel cinematic when the more than 50% of the game is under the player direct control. Please include cut scenes for throws and upper cuts.

Wonderful1011849d ago

All great ideas, I'm proud of you guys.

slappy5081849d ago

Fatalities should be QTEs! Infact why not make the whole fight a QTE

Whats lame is that trolls are taking the opportunity to bash a game that released a few weeks ago with almost any article.

Dont you guys have nothing better to do? I dont know about you but I'm enjoying Shadows of Mordoor and soon either The Handsome Collection or Bloodborne.

Spotie1849d ago

What's really lame is that they're getting away with it.

Mods always say to report them, but what's the point?

Kevlar0091849d ago

Are we talking about Mortal Kombat 1 movie, or MK Annihilation movie? Because one of them was good, the other not so much

rakentaja1849d ago (Edited 1849d ago )

To achieve movie experience in video games you need to be successful in the following: massive black bars, a lot of QTE-s, long boring unskippable videos, mediocre gameplay, 30fps or lower.

Utalkin2me1849d ago

I didn't know Ryse had black bars.

Saito1849d ago

The Order bashing is old.

Rachel_Alucard1849d ago

I wish video games would forge their own identity and stop mimicking the language of TV and movies. Every time I see the word cinematic somewhere in marketing now I get turned off slightly.
