Don't really care about Sonya, but I like how Skarlet looks minus the aviator head gear and her moves are sick. :ylove:
I never had her DLC in MK9 but so far I'm most hyped for her. Short hair version best version.

Anyone worried about shorter combos should watch this. He sets the AI to very hard and she hits 8 hit combos pretty regularly, being that they've taken the combo breakers out I think 8 hits is more than fine lol. Plus if you watch the pro players one of them was doing something like 11 hit combos with Sonya.

Have they announced the roster outside of what was shown a few days ago? I've looked around but couldn't really find anything. There's a rumor Kabal is coming back which I hope cause I enjoyed playing him and got pretty good with him.

They will be doing a kombat kast, yeah that's how they spell it :) on the 30th and when they announced that at the reveal event a character ran across the screen really fast so they'll be showing him off that day. I don't know if you saw the characters in the trailer but Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Cassie Cage and Kitana were shown so I'm sure they are in. I'm hoping that Rain, Noob and Shang Tsung make it back in somehow.

As amazing as the gameplay looks they've also done a great job in other areas of the presentation, the silhouettes fighting while you pick an arena is an awesome touch.

I think Rousey is good looking but the capture is just odd.
Yeah they didn't scan Rousey for the game she's just doing the voice acting, I don't know who they did the facial scan of.

I'd be surprised if Rain is in it but you never know.

Yeah even if he's DLC I'd be fine with it, he's always a highly requested character though and they seem to be focusing on fan favorites in this game according to Ed Boon so hopefully he made the cut. His art work being in the menu is a good sign but sub-zero having a purple shader on one of his outfits and one of Rain's special moves being a modifier in the towers of time could be considered strikes against him being in too.

All I want is Ashy-Slashy, the one who came up with that idea here is a genius, it's all I can think of now.

Yeah I used him quite a bit and ended up liking him. I hope he does end up in game.
The one fighter I haven't seen pit heard yet was Reptile.

That Maximillion guy was saying the game has adopted a more Street Fighter kind of poke/defense style, and is a bit more strategic and less aggressive. He didn't like that. As for me- if they can tap into some SF, I'm all good with that.

I think the youtubers are upset because they have to learn to adapt and won't be doing 15 hit combos right out of the gate. Personally I never once used the run button in MKX and I wasn't a huge combo stringer either so it's going to be business as usual for me lol.

I'm guessing the issue they're trying to address is uneven dominance especially if people are getting corner comboed almost the entire round. It seems like in MK11 the stages are even wider as well so it takes longer to get pushed against the wall. Think Erron Black with repeated corner command grabs and combos.



I never used the run button either, but I did start to put together corner combos to some extent with Raiden.

What I would like to see is characters able to achieve combos without relying on the corner. It seems to me that instead of Run, these characters have a lot of dynamic moves they can chain together to move around their enemy attacking from all sides, especially Scorpion with his teleport. People need to consider how well Gerus moves about the stage both applying pressure and also able to evade attacks.

Raiden needs some Toasty finishers. Just do what Scorpion is doing,but with lightning.
I would like to see that but add one more stage where the skeleton turns to ash and crumbles :)

I would buy this if they remade the originals in this way.

Fantastic. I don't remember the animation and detail being that good even in the arcade... Too bad there are no CPU baddies.

Raiden's brutalities are better than his fatality :)
