Re: Mortal Kombat 11

It looks that way. You have two bars of each meter, one bar of the attack meter let’s you EX an attack (and some moves you can do that to twice). It wasn’t clear if any attacking options needed two bars yet. For the defence meter you spend a bar to do a roll escape, and you can spend a bar to do wak...

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

Geras has moves that can add or remove time from the game clock. So you can perform the ultimate in trolling timer scams. If Justin Wong played Netherrealm stuff, this character would be his main.

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

The return of Skarlet anywhere near as exciting a prospect as Baraka, do you think? Scarlet has her fans, but wasn’t as missed in X as Baraka. Trying to work out from the other b-roll clips I’ve seen who else might be playable. There was a shot of past Liu Kang fighting his Revenant Netherrealm Kin...

And surprising literally no one Sonic Fox is already incredibly strong after just a days practice.

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

I wonder if meter build is on a timer solely for this exhibition, cause that seems like a weird choice. Not a negative one, necessarily, but it'd surely affect the pacing and flow of gameplay pretty significantly. Is the x-ray effect bonus damage what they're referring to as the Crushing Blows? Are...

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

The character Geras can actually manipulate the game clock, hehe.

The fatal blow that you can use when Below 30% is only once per game, if you use it in round one you won’t have it in round 2.

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

Each character has 5 of those x-ray style crushing blows, and you can only use each one once per match, so you need to be aware of what triggers them to best use them.

Yeah Honeybee just got blown out. Sonic Fox is up later.

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

The US stream is running a pro player exhibition now with players from the Injustice pro series. Currently Hayatei is rolling Honeybee. Meter build is automatic, you don’t build it by doing moves or getting hit, they’re just on a timer. The x-ray affect bonus damage comes from landing your normals i...

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

I think he misspoke when he said it follows mk9, the scene they showed was basically an extended version of the post credits stinger from the end of the mkx story mode. Watching Ketchup and Mustard play showed a lot more about what the game can do. Meter burn on attacks (for ex versions) definitely ...

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

Looks pretty good. Story continues directly from the end of mkx, has character customisation that looks to be very similar to Injustice 2 (though they said nothing about how you get the parts, no mention of loot boxes or anything). Ronda Rousey is voicing Sonya Blade. Lots of returning characters, s...

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

I suspect the LA event might have more ‘known’ players, easy enough to have both on, though I suspect there won’t be any ‘new’ things shown after that initial hour with Ed Boon.

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

I have a bunch of ‘12 minute long pieces that I was saving till I guest on the show again some day’, one of which is ‘Climax of the Greylands Incident’, which is the most Sakimoto thing to have ever been burned to disc. It touches pretty much every one of his signature style tropes. So while we’re o...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Sakimoto as composer for 12 was part of the attempt to make it ‘fit’ with the other games set in Ivalice that also had Sakimoto as composer (FFT and Vagrant Story). To the point where unless you know the three games well, you might not easily be able to tell which of the three games any given track...

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

There are two streams, one for the event in LA and the other for the event in London. Looks like they both have the same Ed Boon bit from 7pm, then divide to run local content. https://twitter.com/mortalkombat/status/1085727789553074176?s=21 I think the pro v pro in London will be Ketchup vs Mustard...

Re: Mortal Kombat 11

Mk9 has sub zero, noob and cyber sub zero.

I have a feeling this new one isn’t going to go in for that. I’ll be sad if we don’t see Ferra/Torr again though. They were far too much fun,

Re: Retro gaming

Been going back and forth on it for a while, but I’ve finally caved and put in a pre-order for the Analogue Mega Sg . I have stacks of megadrive carts but my modded machine is very flaky now, and I’ve no idea how much longer my ancient NTSC 60hz crt will last anyway. Analogue take a different approa...

Mortal Kombat 11

The ‘community reveal’ event is live tomorrow 10:30am PST, coming from both London and LA. (6:30pm in the uk) The guest list so far seems a bit too ‘invite random celebs’ rather than actual community people, but that stuff might well be off stream anyway. (Ronda Rousey is rumoured to be voicing Sony...
