New kombat kast today showing off Fujin, they also offered a quick look at the "retrokade" background which is pretty cool.
Skip ahead to about 14:00 for the actual start and a the quick look at the retrokade background is at 42:45

I personally find Fujin a very boring looking character.... I can't decide if his looks are trying to hard or to less.

I really like him, then again I've wanted them to bring him back for the last 3 games and they are finally doing it. I'm still pissed about Rain not coming back though, I'd much rather have Rain than any of the guest characters they've had, especially the Joker.

Agreed, the purple Rain prince should be a first choice imo

I've owned this game since launch and have put in less than an hour into it. I'm so bad at fighting games. That said, my recent addiction to combos is SoR4 and previous addiction to DMC 5 has given me another itch to try overcoming my fighting game suck. Any tips for a newb?

Play on easy and try to pick up one character at a time, go through their character tower, go to the command list and look up the combos etc.

Yeah I don't even play online partly because of my internet and otherwise I'd probably get destroyed. It's a casual fun game to go a few rounds without feeling committed to a campaign, though the story mode is really well done.

If you're looking up moves and I think press Y on the XBox controller, the highlighted move will display on the screen for reference. That's good for referencing combos and special moves.

Or do the tutorial as far as you car to. For what it's worth, individual character tutorials unlock skins when finished. I never finished all the advanced stuff like combos canceling into combo chains.

Who's a balanced character to start with?
I couldn't tell ya, I stick with my favorites every game lol. With this one I've mostly played with Raiden, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Johnny Cage, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Shao Kahn and Jax. I'm not really great at these games either I just love the lore etc and for some reason these characters have a special place in my gamer heart lol.

I still remember going to the liquor store and seeing the first one and how crazy it seemed for the time, then the second one came out and looked so much better, then going to a local mini golf/arcade place to play the 3rd one etc. I remember all of the ads for the SNES/Genesis versions when they were coming out and the controversy with Nintendo and the fatalities. I guess that was a good time in my life, I was 19 and not worried about a whole lot lol so this series will always be something I'm into regardless of how much I suck at playing them compared to most people.

Aftermath is bloody amazing. Worth every penny IMO. I love the ridiculous Saturday-morning-cartoon-for-adults story, lol. And Some of that fight choreography is just fantastic. I love Shang Tsung's actor's expressions and mannerisms. Just perfect! I want more! Already beat it once. Now to make different choices!

I finally got Aftermath installed plus nVidia stuff.

I haven't started the new story, but Robocop is a fvcking tank.

Undecided on Fujin, his powers are both cool and weird. I am fond of 'God' characters like Raiden and Cetrion, but undecided on him.

Sheeva is decent. I like the 4 step stomp throw move lol.
