Monday night was just awesome! The turnout wasn't as big as say Halo or Call of Duty, but who cares. The people who were there knew MK and were fun to be around.
Furthermore, I was the runner-up in the GameStop tourney! For my first tournament, 2nd place ain't so bad. I beat four others to make it to the finals, with a kombo of Liu Kang and Kano. The final round, I took a gamble on Kano and lost to a guy who used Sub-Zero like it was an art form. I'm not mad though. I had fun, and I won a GameStop MK promo poster and a Duke Nukem Forever poster. =)
The game is just awesome! It has it's bugs here and there, but otherwise NRS outdid themselves. I am very satisfied with the story mode.
