I picked up a cheap copy recently and was surprised at how many bonus options it had, including a puzzle game, MK Chess, and an adventure mode. It also, from my brief trial play, seemed to have pretty solid gameplay and graphics. It was a happy find.


Nope, it is on the agenda. Good to hear :)

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon has the best Konquest mode. It does away with the simplistic tutorial fight missions from Deadly Alliance or the time specific quests and missions from Deception that players weren't even guaranteed to discover. Instead, Armageddon takes a couple of pages from the popular spin-off title Shaolin Monks, providing a linear exploratory adventure while introducing two new characters. It also has Create A Fighter. Make fighters that look like people you hate and beat their face in. Good times. Armageddon is in top three MK games for me.

The 3D Mortal Kombats were interesting, but I found it way too easy to cheese with Scorpion. Start in Hapkido, hit your opponent with your spear, go through the full combo that switches your style so you end up using your sword, and then juggle twice. Congrats, half your opponent's health is gone.

I had the LE's of both of those MK games, and I played the bonus stuff wayyyy more than the games themselves.

The best 3D MK I have played is this one, it's totally awesome. I'm really looking forward to the next one.

But they work as skirts if you have about fifty of them.

When I played it closer to release, I considered 2011 to be a nice advancement over what I had been led to believe were fairly lackluster PS2-era MK games (I had also heard bad things about (and thus never played) the MK vs DC game). I liked Injustice more than MK 2011, however, and am hoping that the MKX takes most of its cues from it...

Now, though, I am wondering if all the mainline MK games have been pretty decent all along and if I missed out on some stuff I'd have liked by largely ignoring them. And, to your point, It has been some years since I played 2011, but I intend to go back to it as part of my MK-a-thon and to consider it in the context of the series. Right now, though, I am really impressed by the game modes/options and on-the-fly styles of MK:DA.

MK vs DCU is pretty meh. It could have been really good had it used a 2D plane like MK9 and Injustice did. But the sidestepping made projectiles stupid.

MK9 I liked a lot in 2011. But going back to it has felt like a chore.

Injustice I couldn't really get into. Maybe it's because I'm not a DC fan? Don't know.

Having said all the above, I feel like there's a good chance I'll still buy MKX. :?

Ds, are you planning on doing that MK-a-thon in relation to the Together Retro later this year? I am planning to go back to MK2 that month and then moving on to MK3 and UMK3.

1. Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition(PS4)
2. Infamous First Light(PS4)
3. Drakengard 3(PS3) *Endings 1-4. Ending 5 I watched online due to BS boss.
4. Infamous Second Son(PS4)
5. Thomas Was Alone(PS4)
6. Uncharted Drake's Fortune(PS3) *
7. Uncharted 2 Among Thieves(PS3) *
8. Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception(PS3) *
9. Deadpool(PS3)
10. Red Dead Redemption(360)
11. Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare(360)
12. The Walking Dead Survival Instinct(360)

Overall it is a pretty shitty game. Everything really feels half assed to the point that it really isn't worth playing unless you are really really into the show. To say it plays and looks like a decade old Half Life 2 mod would be an insult to Half Life 2 mods :lol: . Crap story, insanely basic game play with repetitive maps, slow combat, and really shitty AI/enemy placement. Plus it's only 4-5 hours long which could actually be the best thing about the game :lol: .
