Stating the obvious? lol
Are you disappointed that its a female voice actor? I can totally see a Barry
White low pitched voice for Kitana :p
However in all honesty, the voice acting for Kitana in these later MK's sort of
tarnishes her image - like she is more immature now. Definitely no Talisa Soto.

@ 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 talented.
@ 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 ......ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz

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
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4akl6AUj_JM


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

You will see Kenshi in tournaments because there are players who

That said, there are characters who are more competitively viable

than others at this stage of the game, so top players will

naturally

gravitate toward those characters. Its still early days though

and,

given

NRS's reputation, later patches will probably have a very

impact on characters and matchups.

Kano is surprisingly very fun to play and rewarding. He's

basic and solid. Not so much gimmicks. Almost like the Kazuya

of

MKX lolz



D'Vorah is stupid technical. All those Wasp Cancel is going

to

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 that

lesson...all i

did was watch myself die...at full screen range...



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

counter

part.



Cassie is a combo machine.



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

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

into

Orb trap raiden also looks fun





No Goro

Kung Jin is apparently OP

Did some tests regarding ducking command grabs since it

Erron Blacks command grab is fully duckable at all ranges.



Goros command grab is definitely not duckable... however

ducking

greatly reduces the grabs effective range. If the opponent

is

ducking then

goro can grab you at roughly normal command range but if they

standing

its slightly(very slightly) less than the distance at round

start.



And this refers to ducking without block. If you block low

you
