    I wonder why? MK2 Thoughts?

    I sit sometimes while playing MK2 on Xbox 360 collection and think why Mmidway and the MK team decided to get lazy in ways?

    For instance Scorpion, Reptile and Sub-Zero's friendships.

    Buy a xxxx doll?

    Why not have Scorpion pull out a bag or charcoal instead of a doll and say "wanna have a cookout" or "roast anyone"?

    Why not have Sub-Zero yank out a ice cream or a sno kone ?

    Reptile his own.

    Same sprites just different end items is all. Maybe a few frames but not much.


    Do you have anything small things you ever wondered why they didn't change or tweak some also?

    Because if they changed anything, fans would go crazy because they want it to be as close to the original as it can be.

    That could be the result of memory limitations. That's the whole reason the ninjas were made by palette-swapping in the first place.

    I can only assume it was due to time constraints and budget/memory limitations.

    Yeah but were talking 1 little image and a change of the text. Nothing loss or gained with changing the text. That little bit of a difference wouldn't have made that much of a deal.

    I don't think that they were lazy with MKII. Much more with UMK3. Some fighters don't have proper finishing moves. Some Animalities and Friendships are ridiculous as hell.

    The only Animality I can tolerate is Liu Kang's. And Sheeva should have been taken away in handcuffs for stealing as a result of HER Animality.

    Agreed. MKT is especially riddled with laziness IMHO. Half-finished fatalities (all fade-to-blacks), poor animations, and lackluster animality additions made MKT a bit half-baked IMO.

    I have NEVER gotten over the arms in the air crap after someone was cut or bitten in half. Epitome of lazy.
