Honestly, I too have an amazing taste in games. Although me getting older and more cynical makes it harder to enjoy all these looter shooters without feeling sour. Even the randomized chests here made me keep off until a sale. Played it at friend last weekend though, from what I've seen (whole campaign and a few hours in different modes towers etc.) it's the best fighter to date.

Stopped at a store north of Atlanta that had a working Mortal Kombat 2 arcade cabinet. Unfortunately, I think some chips were aged and some graphics were glitchy. I played as Raiden, but the controls were messed up. I think it might be an original 90s cabinet.

It was a neat random thing to come across. I used to play arcade fighters a lot at the mall by the theater.

Also to think about the gaming laptop I have now with MK11 graphics compared to this old machine.

I just started practicing Shang Tsung. Still trying to figure him out but he sure is fun. I'm using his first variation. I guess it's his sorcery setup?

His fatality is kinda blah in my opinion.

Performs MERCY for Brutality requirement;

gets Fatal Blowed immediately.


Most of this game is freakin great, but some requirements for Brutalities are just stupid. Just give us some input commands not 30 percent health or stupid MERCIES.

I get why they do it, you have to strategize if you want some of the brutalities so you have to play the whole match to set it up but yeah some of them are a bit too difficult, I don't like the ones that say the character has to be at the full distance to connect, half the time I'm like 2 inches away from hitting them.

Been playing character towers. I sometimes get tired of watching Fatal Blows to just meet the tower requirements, but I don't mind grinding for Brutalities. Especially as i progress and unlock them. Fatalities depend a lot on the character.

For some reason, I like Cetrion and finally finished that grindy tower. I like Cetrion's abiities and as a conflicted character, but I also like having another God character like Raiden and would take this over Fujin wind powers. I hope she can return somehow in MK12. I also really like Cetrion's Brutalities especially the last one Crucher that just explodes the opponent.

Raiden was not surprisingly the first character tower i finished. I also think his graphics are getting tweaked, his lightning seems a little different.

I'm about halfway through Shang Tsung's tower.

I'll have to see an image of Nightwolf's face before I decide if I like the design or not, from the profile I'm not liking that hat, looks like he's going to hop on a 10 speed lol.
