@ Nic: Haha, guess I need to tone down with the essay writing - force of
habit from having just done my thesis (which I am still awaiting my results
from - welcome to South Africa? LOL). Yeah I would definitely like to try
the game out. I think maybe you did not appreciate the final fantasy parody
because you never played the game :p BUT I still think she is very

@ Ashraf: I think the advertisement for MK is top notch and I am sure
there are die-hard MK fans (I use to love the old school 2D MK games. After
the franchise went 3D I felt it kind of lost something). The problem I find
is that with an MK game there is that loyal fan base that kind of skewers
facts and opinions - hence looking for a non-biased opinion of the game. MK
is very promotional (and, maybe not so much today, but also very
controversial). Its this promotion and controversy that in my mind sells
the game not necessarily the depth of the gameplay (but just my opinion).

The head issue/realism: I am fine with them not going the super model route
or even being realistic BUT if you compare their other female characters
(Sonya, Cassie, Jaqui etc.) Kitana and Mileena's heads are just off to me.
I also agree with Saps, Kitana looks better with a Mask on - NRS do not
know how to do female faces (I guess they were lucky with Mileena :p).

Nice essay Ecco

Kitana is good.
Never really noticed the girl's head size. I'm inclined to agree tho.
Look a bit big-headed now that I think about it.

If you wanna try out the game, I can help you with that.
I doubt it will have the longevity that say SF or Tekken enjoy, but it
does boil down to the community playing it right?
NRS should eek out content slowly if they want to increase the lifespan.

From the final fantasy side of things, I think

Wow that just seems so broken. The brokenness aside, is Kitana any good
in this game - she use to be one of my favourite MK characters (I know that
mournful is suppose to be her worst variation?). I have kind of been
holding off getting the game, tbh I don't really like the animations of the
newer MK games - they don't seem to be as smooth as other games. Is it just
me or does Mileena and Kitana's heads look a little big in proportion to
the rest of their body? It might be some thing else, like Mileena's hair
making her head look bigger than it actually is.

From a none bias point of view does MKX have any longevity/ staying power
- or will it fade out in a couple of months time?

On a side note, I found this youtube video earlier hours of this morning:

For anyone that played Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn, it's definitely
worth a listen - it is basically a parody "aetherflow" based on the
Disney's frozen "let it go" The lyrics are really awesome and JessPlays
shows off a lot of talent signing it (so it might be worth a listen even if
you never played the game).

It's basically about the struggles of DPS with long duty finder queues
(in this case a Black Mage) and then she changes to a healer (Scholar) and
experiences the benefits of insta-queues. I think if you ever player
scholar you would really appreciate/ understand the lyrics -- the highlight
for me is "I'm never going back, except to get swiftcast" :p

She also sings "Do you want to Kill a Titan" but lyrically its not as

It really is so fuck them.

Dude's don't seem know that as a group we've been breaking

That makes us better equipped to judge FG stuff.

You will see Kenshi in tournaments because there are players
the character.

That said, there are characters who are more competitively
than others at this stage of the game, so top players will
gravitate toward those characters. Its still early days
NRS's reputation, later patches will probably have a very
impact on characters and matchups.

Raiden is dial a combo, 45% damage, thanks.

I can see Kung Jin being strong. He has decent tools.
But his
character just seem meh to me...tried a bit of him, like
whole spinning
combo starter stuff...

Kano is surprisingly very fun to play and rewarding. He's
basic and solid. Not so much gimmicks. Almost like the
MKX lolz

D'Vorah is stupid technical. All those Wasp Cancel is
make me break the controller. But people are claiming
strong as hell.
Just need to choose the right variation for the right
matches...swarm queen
vs subz's grandmaster? yeah, thanks SAP for teaching me
lesson...all i
did was watch myself full screen range...

Mileena...well, totally different playstyle to her MK9

Cassie is a combo machine.

Goro = fuck all you guys, i'm ex punch walking.

Not a big tourney with big names but cool matches. MKX

Quan Chi looks so damn good... that fucking bat. Combo

Orb trap raiden also looks fun

No Goro
