Oof looks like PC users get f***ed. Game isn't even supposed to be out on PC until sometime tomorrow I guess. Unfortunately purchased through 3rd party otherwise I'd probably just ask for a refund. At least the game was cheap I guess.

Same here, I just got to the halfway point of the story and stopped. Sadly there have been a lot of server issues tonight so I haven't been able to do anything in the krypt on my Pro or customization because that won't save either. I couldn't on the X1X at first either but eventually I was able to connect to the servers there.

NRS says they'll be supporting this game longer than any of their previous games, I hope that means the PS5 and next Xbox get enhanced versions.

Also I don't know if it's just me but both versions look sharper than the beta did, I don't know if they are higher res or it's all in my head lol

She's very uneven that's for sure, there are times in the story where she's actually doing alright and then they'll need a quick change in tone and she falls flat.

She go to the MASH acting school?


I had to work, but I hauled my RoG laptop with me damnit. I'm having dinner at a truck stop while waiting for the Patch on my crappy Wifi hookup in my truck. I got the Preload over the weekend at home.

I had some issues until a new GeForce driver update dropped. Now I'm in really good shape, though sometimes things feel weird or slow on Kronika's stage. Not sure if that's a performance thing or if it's a normal feature of the stage.

The game is silly sensitive on being online, even for things that should be offline like a Klassic Tower. I was going through Novice towers with different characters and had a Server connection error and the game actually crashed. It may have been from my local Wifi. :really:

Game looks f***ing great though and I love pulling some simple grab Brutalities. Especially frying people with Raiden it looks so good.

Ok, they need to do something about needing to be connected to the server. You cant unlock anything? That's some bs...

Yeah the needing to be connected for gear is silly but since that's tied to the krypt and the towers which are connected to the servers I don't know if there is a way around it. They need to stop making up worthless items for the krypt, nobody cares about anything other than skins, gear and finishing moves. I can see adding art work to the chests that have those other things in them but I don't want to hunt around and open up 99% concept art and symbols that do nothing.

I finished the story tonight myself, I also enjoyed every minute of it. I'd love an expansion story at some point after all of the DLC characters are added, I doubt it'll happen but I could go for a new story expansion every year.

I decided to watch a full reaction video clip of all the Fatalities. It's weird to me how some get through that are just plain terrible, while others are jaw dropping amazing gorefests.

Erron Black's 2nd Fatality was new to me and that sh;t was crazy compared to the blah acid bomb thing. Kitana's and Kung Lao's 2nd Fatalities are amazing. Both of D'vorah's are horrifying lol.

Still a long time fan of Raiden, his first Fatality is very meh, his 2nd one is decent.

I have mixed feelings about Cetrion. Her giant one is cool but going to space was overkill. Her 2nd one is terrible and comes off like something put together at the last minute. I did like trying her out as a character for game play though and she has a badass victory pose.


Man I wish I didn't have to work right now.

Only played through the first set of tutorials last night so not much to go on. Game looks great for sure. Did have it crash on me while I was in the character customization screen though lul.

They've made some adjustments already to address the complaints people had. One thing I think that needs to be cleared up is they didn't add loot boxes etc it was just that the towers were too hard and were going to take too long to unlock anything and the rewards were insufficient. Also all of the chests in the krypt contain the same things for everyone it's just that the basic chests (without Shao Kahn or Scorpion) on them are placed in different places for different people. You can't buy anything that's in the krypt or anything at all that has an impact on gameplay with real money so there is no way they are trying to artificially inflate the need to spend real money. The money can be spent to buy skins or easy fatalities in the store but that's about it. They are going to be giving us all a bonus amount of koins, hearts and souls sometime soon.

This video shows the stream and Maximillian Dood's thoughts on it.

Apparently there are 3 endings. Good, bad, and secret. I believe it has to do with who you fight as in certain situations. Gonna have to try for the bad ending. Mine was... super spoiler...

Fire/Lighting God Liu Kang (taking Raidens place) and Kitana rewrite the timeline.

Same here, btw I played the entire story on normal until I got to the final boss, after a few fights I just took it down to very easy because I was getting annoyed and just wanted to see how the story ended lol.

Yeah, I did the whole thing on medium. Was pretty easy until Kronica. That fight was annoying, but it took about 4 tries.

Nevermind about the "endings" apparently the bad one is just
where she cuts your head off when you lose
. Kinda lame.

So you get a different ending depending on if you beat her without losing a round (like I did) or if she beats you one round. And of course, if you lose. 3 different ending.

Well randomizing the Krypt means they are loot boxes. Hard to believe they didn't do that so they could eventually sell an option to unlock them with money. Which they have done in the past.

They aren't because you can't buy them, you can't buy anything in the krypt with real money it's all earned through in game coins which you also cannot buy in the store they have to be earned through gameplay. A loot box as I understand it is a random thing that you spend your own money on, these boxes aren't randomly generated they are just in different locations. We have never known what was in any krypt containers before but they were always in the exact same spot for everyone, this time they've moved the mid/lower level boxes around randomly but the things in each box aren't random. So if I unlock a box that has a specific piece of gear in it and some other item if you unlock that box in a different spot it'll have the exact same content as mine it was just put in a different location.

Yes in the past they offered on day one an option to buy everything in the krypt if you didn't want to take the time to do it, they aren't doing that this time.

Just a reminder to check your kombat kard every day for the challenges, also I know the servers were iffy at first so if you finished any of the story mode while it wasn't connected make sure you check the notifications to see if you have anything you earned that isn't claimed yet.

MK11 was the biggest launch in series history and biggest launch for WB games in North America ever.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment big cheese David Haddad has revealed that Mortal Kombat 11 has enjoyed the series' biggest launch to date.

Speaking at the GamesBeat Summit in Los Angeles this week (via VentureBeat), Haddad confirmed that developer NetherRealm Studios has 'years of new content' planned for the critically acclaimed spine-ripping brawler. In addition, he revealed that Mortal Kombat 11 is also Warner's biggest ever game launch in history for North America.

Loot boxes don't have to be bought to be loot boxes but you are giving them the benefit of the doubt in terms of never being able to buy the Krypt or buy currency. They do not deserve the benefit of the doubt.

You could figure what was in a box before opening it in previous games. Now you can't. If you don't know whats in it and can't find out then its a loot box.

Yes and in the past everyone just waited for someone else to do the work and they'd just look it up online and go get it, they don't want people doing that. They do deserve the benefit of the doubt because in the past the ability to buy out the krypt was there day one and they could have done that this time and never made any changes to address the complaints people are making.
