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.

I finally finished the damn Gauntlet Tower. Some of that takes skill and some of it is figuring out a strategy with Konsumables.

Have quite a few more unlocks now including the Fire God Liu Kang.

Well, that looks completely insane. They really put a lot of work into it. I'm hoping the overall work on the green sorcery looks can apply to improving Shang Tsung as well. It's cool how they give him a mix of magic and guns though a little odd at how out-classed other character seem. Maybe some are triggered with command grabs. It also makes me wish even more they let The Joker have the Tommy Gun or especially the giant revolver from Tim Burton's Batman.

Spawn looks potentially OP, but it's Spawn and the hype for him and the goal of pleasing fans is really high.

Matinee Skin Pack WTF is that though?

Also, Skarlet is getting seriously robbed on new skins. She should get the She-Spawn skin or perhaps at least an Angela skin.

Guess aside from Skin Pack nitpicks, if they did Spawn this good how well migh Ash be if he's still presumed to be future DLC.

Story expansion teaser, new trailer tomorrow.
I want Dark Raiden back dammit. Raiden and Dark Raiden combined because he's immortal, but he gave that up to Liu Kang so it seems like Dark Raiden should return even if he isn't a Thunder God anymore. Unless Dark Raiden reappears with Shinnok's amulet?

Otherwise, we have Shang Tsung and 2 mystery characters? New DLC or something else? Might one of them be the KRYPT GUY? :D

I still want them to include Rain damn it!! lol I know there were leaks before the game launched that had several other characters that haven't made it into the game yet but they had all of the current DLC characters right.
