    Re: Let's talk about Geras baby, let's talk about good or bad

    His design looked trash upon first viewing, but it grew on me in the gameplay trailer. Combat-wise, he looks like a lot of fun, but he also might end up being overpowered. His movesets are definitely Injustice-Influenced, but so was Raiden's X-Ray move in MKX. Design/Story/character-wise, unless a comic comes out or until the game actually come, I'm not sold on him or any consideration of him returning after MK11.

    When compared to new characters of the past, I was more interested in Hsu Hao and Mokap as characters upon first seeing them than I am Geras. When I first seen him on the select screen before the gameplay trailer, he seemed like a huge waste of space on the roster. I'm gonna give him a chance still and he will definitely be the first character I try upon release.

    1.) We don't know what kind of time abilities Kronika has so we can't really make that statement.

    2.) Since when did Tremor use sand? If anything that's more Erron's thing. (I know Geras has a few similiar moves to Tremor but still).
    Long Live Mortal Kombat!!!

    Gears has a Too Human vibe to him (Not sure if I want to view that as good thing or not?). I do think he looks like he can a fun character to play as and hoping that he will be interesting in the story mode.

    Re: Let's talk about Geras baby, let's talk about good or bad

    Seems like he's gonna be an interesting character. Kronika's henchman tho. Don't believe that first leak is right about him being at odds with her.

    I wonder what that story of him dying and returning stronger might mean for the story. He also seems to be a scholar, not merely a fighter, he is always meaning learning story, seems to be interested in the kollection of time.

    He bleeds blue, Shinnok bleeds red, so I wonder what type of god he is (if the color of the blood actually means anything).

    Last but not least so far: has an amulet slot for Onaga reference. Won't let my dreams fly, but, strange right.

    I don't think he's a god. He seems like a construct, like a golem. One of his intros shows his head rolling onto his body. His blood isn't normal (maybe it's Kronika's blood that powers him. Seeing her blood would help with this theory) so I don't think he's someone that was "born" for lack of a better word.

    Re: Let's talk about Geras baby, let's talk about good or bad

    Thats interesting to think. I think you might be right.

    Still, his position in the story is interesting. He mentions to Sub-Zero studying the Lin Kuei for millenia, and for Baraka he shows knowledge of the Tarkatan full history. He might be one of those time zealots, Kronika's bodyguard and she must allow him to study all timelines since he's immortal.

    Now, one thing that BBBLP's guess tricks me is: if he is a construct, he at the least is a living being. Who constructed him? Kronika? Because if she did, the Elder Gods have never been able to create life itself, just to administrate it. I wonder if NRS is creating a fourth type of godhood.

    I don't like Geras, because he manipulates material that is coarse, and rough, and irritating, and gets everywhere.

    He looks different than most MK characters, but that only made me appreciate him more, he seems really unique.

    Geras is pretty awesome.
    The most interesting character of all the ones that were showcased, imo.
    Dude doesn't give a flying shit about Raiden or Baraka, freezes young Liu Kang and Kung Lao in mid-air and clotheslines people.

    I never care for powerhouses, other than Rain and Ermac that is.

    I actually thought it was Jax when they first revealed him, but I really like his design and the fact that he stops time. I'll definitely be checking him out

    Re: Let's talk about Geras baby, let's talk about good or bad

    The thing I find funny about it is let's say Geras had debuted in MKDA for example, maybe people would have liked him, maybe hated him. But for sure if we fastforward to today, people would be like "Why can't we get Geras instead of so and so newcomer?" "Why waste a slot on so and so when it could have been Geras?" It just kind of screams "nostalgia goggles" to me. Geras is unique in design, mostly unique in gameplay, and not at all some human SF character. His rewind moves have a neat visual flair to them, and his voice acting seems fine.

    I'm not talking about anyone here, per se, but across the internet in general I feel like I've seen a decent amount of whining, but come on...he isn't Kobra. I think he'll fit into the MK fold nicely.

    I've been seeing a lot of people asking for Ashrah lately. I can understand asking for most 3d era characters, but Ashrah is definitely one that I just can't wrap my head around.

    Personally, me either. I'm a "to each, their own" type of guy though, so whatever floats their boat. I'd rather see Hotaru than Ashrah.

    I'd rather just see Reiko, Havik, Frost, Sareena, Fujin and Kai.

    Keep Kenshi, Tanya and Quan Chi and you have all the 3D-period characters I'll ever need.

    I'll give Mavado a chance, but he needs new weapons (like those of Takada, which suit Mavado more) and a new appearance overal, but his name is kinda cool and there are some possibilities with him.

    Shinnok, Onaga, Dairou, Darrius, Kobra, Kira, Drahmin, Moloch, Blaze, Mocrap, Shujinko, Hsu Hao, Taven and his Brother, Bo Rai Cho, Li Mei, Nitara, Ashrah, Hotaru, Meat and Jarek can all go kill themselves. The only non-3D-Period characters that can go kill themselves are Motaro, Chameleon and Khameleon, maybe Stryker, but he can be fun if you rob all the SF characters from their guns.

    Also Robo-Smoke and Zombie Kang, hope they never repeat those mistakes again.

    Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Kano, Sonya Blade, Johnny Cage, Liu Kang, Goro, Shang Tsung, Kung Lao, Reptile, Mileena, Kitana, Baraka, Jade, Smoke (human/demon only), Noob Saibot (I call him Umbra though), Kintaro, Shao Kahn, Kabal, Sektor, Cyrax, Skarlet, Ermac, Rain, Nightwolf, Tremor, Sheeva, Kotal, D'Vorah, Ferra & Torr, Erron Black, Takeda, Kung Jin, Reiko, Havik, Frost, Sareena, Fujin, Kai, Kenshi, Tanya and Quan Chi.

    Mavado and Stryker can be fun, but not in their current condition.

    I would not call that everyone. I just don't care that much about most of the 3D era characters, though some of them like Havik and Kenshi are among my favorites.

    I wonder how you'd feel if there was a modifier in game that turned all characters into Hsu-Hao for a week.
