I never knew her to be a fan favorite and kinda surprised they included her in the DLC. Might as well include Stryker in the DLC.

Now in saying that, she does look kinda cool.

I think you wrote it correct at first lol, I'm just being a weirdo.
It's funny though, whenever I'm in doubt about a "two-pass" (correct word? Used Google translate) in English, I just put the words apart. In my language you mostly put the words together into one.
In my head I knew it was two words but I just did it the wrong way anyway lol. Thanks for pointing it out :) I did correct it.

Stryker was actually pretty fun in MK9, if they did include him later and he played like that I wouldn't be upset but there are many others I'd rather have first.

He would be another interesting character to Cyberize like Frost and kind of offset the absence of playable Sektor / Cyrax.

I think he's a Revenant, but maybe his younger self would work.

They can do revenant and regular skins like they have for the others so that wouldn't be a problem.

I was thinking for however much guest characters fit with the story. Like they added Shang Tsung, but I think tried to explain his absence in the story.

I think they also want to find ways to add character dialogue that makes some kind of sense.

Stryker as a cyborg could be interesting though.

Actually, I was hoping MK11 might suggest a story connection between the Cyber Initiative and Skynet for Terminator, but just went with him being from the future of another Earth. Oh well.

Along with that, I thought it would be cool to give Frost an Endoskeleton during Krushing Blows to suggest that connection that Frost is probably unaware of.

Or have Terminator ask Frost if she is a T-X model.

Tried playing Sindel. Not really a fan, but the character is an okay addition to the roster to fight against.

I think it bugs me her major signature attack setups are long charge ups leaving the character vulnerable. It's tricky to time.

I do think radically changing the character's story is weird.







Her Banshee Spirit thing totally reminds me of this though lol.

I have been enjoying the Gothic Skin pack. I happen to like both Raiden and Cetrion.

Alhought now with this look when I pick Cetrion I'm thinking: "Enchantress, Enchantress, Enchantress."

Never quite got Geras, but might try him again.


But fvcking seriously, give Skarlet a vampire skin.

I like Sindel quite a bit myself, I hear her combos are hard to pull off against other people though but luckily I pretty much stick to play against AI.

I guess there are ways to use Move Cancels to quick stop and restart to chain moves into advanced combos. I don't have the time to practice that crazy stuff so I assume I'll be stomped like the ending of Ip Man.



Oh well, it's still fun to poke at casually and the finishers are still gross. I applaude the sound designers who really sell this nasty sh,t.


Also, I still get some MK1 nostalgia from playing this version of Raiden. He's been my MK main since the 90s. I'm also kind of enjoying Vampire Dark Raiden. I wish they'd give him red glasses; he'd look like Alucard from Hellsing.

Tried out Joker a little bit. His behavior seems more cartoony than Injustice 2 which is odd. One would think MK11 is the opportunity to make him more.... serious lol.

I really wish he had a Tommygun in regular gameplay and not just in his Fatality.

The gas can is difficult to use effectively, but a cool weapon for him.

I'm totally fine with his Fatal Blow.

The birthday cake Friendship / Fatality is a funny reference call back to the Friendship finisher, but I wish the other one was a bit more dark. I was really hoping for something similar to his Injustice 2 Super Move, but more bloody.



I also wish Joker had an electric weapon like the signature Handshake Buzzer from Tim Burton's Batman.



Aside from Joker, Darkseid Geras looks badass.

I also like The Bat Who Laughts skin for Noob Saibot.

Gentleman, let's broaden our minds.


Kind of randomly cracks me up that this hat is gear in the game. He can almost have the look from Tim Burton's BATMAN. I wish he had more of the Tim Burton gimmicks like the killer hand buzzer.
