Yay! Haven't seen Scorpion on the cover in a while
X had Scorpion on the cover and 9 had both Sub Zero and Scorpion.
You guys seriously want me to add the obvious /s??
What? He's on the digi cover of X.
He's been on the last 3 covers including this one. I know he's Boon's favourite character but I'm tired of seeing his mug all the damn time. Champion of the elder gods my backside! Subzero forever!
Sub Zero forever indeed...
ugly, like the whole franchise. perfect fit.
Thanks Ed! For everything you've given us. Now go to those guys who make those 1-UP mini arcade cabinets and tell them they can't release the MK/MK2 licensed cabinet if they are using the same cheap joysticks that were used on the Street Fighter cabinets. They are TERRIBLE and ruin the game. Nothing like SF2 was in the arcade. I want to buy he MK cabinet this February when it's supposedly out, but definitely not if those bad joysticks are in there. What were they thinking?
I'll have one of these day one but I'll definitely be tracking down some bat-style sticks if it comes with ball-top sticks.
I'll never turn down a new MK but, I still hold out hope that a MK HD remaster of the first three games will rise from the dead in some form. I just wanna play some old school digitized goodness with a fresh coat of paint. I miss the classic simple style of the first two, back before everything became over complicated.
Best bet would be PC and downloading the fan project one
I’m gonna wait till this game is like 20 bucks and get it. I don’t wanna spend 60 bucks on it. The last game got boring after I beat the story mode.
It's best to wait and grab the Komplete edition with all the DLC a year later
Offcourse its boring if you suck, I used to suck in fighting games but recently put in abit of effort to learn combos and it opened up a whiold new genre to my eyes. Playing injustice 2 online was damn fun felt really rewarding learning the mechanics...
if you wanna play online then around the release date is the best time to buy it but it doesn't sound like you are someone who plays competitive modes so in that case your choice is good i think
I miss the days of the old "Icon" box art. You walk through the store and see that medallion--it caught your eye and pulled you in. Mortal Kombat 11 box art is just like every other sodding modern game box art: Guy striking a pose with weapon. That's it. He's even covering up the old iconic symbol to show everyone they think you only really care about the name and if the characters look cool. I guess it's truth in advertising though as Scorpion is probably the only playable character without the season passes, unattached DLC, and loot boxes you'll grinding for until the Ultimate edition comes out.
